Just registered today. I have had t-shirt designs running through my head for a couple of years now but have been too lazy to get started.

However, I am picky about t-shirt quality and this I think will be a trial/error basis. I like very soft cotton t-shirts. If anyone can point me a direction to a supplier this might cut some search time.

Thank You

Welcome to the T-ShirtForums.

You can buy sample blanks from places like cheapestees.com, blankshirts.com, alternativeapparel.com, americanapparel.com, etc.

Just go through the various styles and brands to find out which style you prefer.

I ordered 18 samples from BlankShirtStore.com two weeks ago (3 shirts each in 6 colors) and was satisfied with their price/service. 12 of the shirts came in two days, as they have a warehouse here in Texas... and the rest came within a week.

t-shirtwholesaler.com is another place worth mentioning.

Howdy from New Mexico! I empathize with your position. There are so many options available, it's hard to figure out which are the best moves to make. You've been given several good links on shirt source options and are lucky to be based in Texas where suppliers are abundant.

For what it's worth, in my recent research I found that the tourists in my area were willing to pay up to $28 for a high-quality t-shirt. They determined quality by fabric weight and content. More of them preferred pre-shrunk 100% cotton than the cotton/poly blends. Hanes and Guildan were the most desirable brand names that came up.

I finally ordered my first heat press yesterday. I settled on a Geo Knight 16x20 Clamshell. I started my search on eBay thinking I would find something slightly used at a good price but when I added the padded shipping to buy now price I found I would have spent more than buying direct from a reputable distributor. Are you planning on getting a new or used press?

Hi Barb, welcome to the T-Shirt Forums!

Thanks for sharing that information!
