I like the Gildans you are ordering. The best size depends on your target market; teenage girls would be smalls while geeks would be larges. In general, seems like The breakdown is something like S-15 M-25 L-30 XL-20 XXL-10.
TJ, I've heard a couple people talk about the Jerzeey brand on the boards.
What is the oz of that brand vs. the Gildan Ultra cotton or Haynes Beefy T?
ps. I've gotten Gildan for a few shirts I've had printed. Their pretty good and seam to last. They are a little rougher then lets say American Apparel... but they are also pretty hefty and durable. I personally prefer a little more thickness than softness. Thin shirts annoy me. A good combination of both soft and at least 6 oz. thickness would be the best... but I've yet to see one that fits that category.
The Jerzees Gold is 7.6oz (Approx. 215gsm) I always liked the lighter feel but I agree, it's nice to get a good combination of weight and softness.
I'm looking at getting my own shirts manufactured now, that way you get exactly what you want!
American Apparel is the best in my opinion and we have people request it. XL seems to be the most popular as they run slim. Gildan Ultra cotton is what we use most - they are really thick and easy to print on, that and Fruit of the Loom Heavyweight.
