The Product? What is it made of?

Beginning with our t-shirts. They are made of 100 percent cotton material, perfect for hot summers and comfortable to wear. They are made by Hanes and Gildan and we receive them directly from the warehouse.

Our designs are made out of heat transfer vinyl material which is perfectly designed to be put on cotton t-shirts. We have tried and tested different types of material and this one has been more long lasting and of better quality. Our heat transfer vinyl is made by Siser N.A., which is an excellent company that specializes in these types of materials.

What Is The Custom T-Shirt Design Process?

How do we make it happen? What do we do? We have special hardware that cuts the vinyl to the exact size and shape of every design. It cuts the vinyl perfectly to a maximum of 12 by 12 size. Any design outside of that size, we have to combine two different vinyl cuts to make a larger design. When combining colors, we measure and place each vinyl design separately. This is just the beginning of the custom t-shirt design process.

Besides that, we heat the t-shirt with a press iron just enough to warm up the cotton material. We place the vinyl onto the shirt and use the large press iron to transfer the material with high temperatures of 320 degrees fahrenheit for 30 seconds.  When combining different vinyl colors, we time 10 seconds after each placement until we complete the design with a final 20 second heat press.

We verify that the material is completely transferred and we add more time with the heat press until the material has fully merged in the cotton t-shirt. The is our complete custom t-shirt design process!
