Why our shirts?
We pride ourselves on our quality and attention to details. Here are some of the main differences that set us apart.
We start with a long staple cotton and then card it and comb it to remove all impurities. It is then ringspun to create an extra soft feel and is knit into large rolls of fabric. Cut and sew follows to produce a side seamed garment with double needle stitching and shoulder to shoulder tape. Shirts are then dyed, dried, inspected and pressed.
To cut costs, others will knit a cotton tube and cut sleeve holes. That style cuts costs, but causes the garment to twist making them harder to print and to display.
With garment dye, it is like washing the shirt. If you just wash it and put it in a box, it picks up wrinkles and looks used when the customer gets it. We put an enzyme wash finish onto the garments and then press each one. Not only does it present better to the customer, but they print better. By flattening the fibers, you don’t get the strays sticking through the ink. No more double white underbase with a thick hand to knock down stray fibers.
These little steps we take may sound insignificant, but create a shirt that prints better, wears better, feels better and sells better.
Our pigment shirts will quickly become one of the favorites in your customers closet. The more they are washed, the softer they become. The tones will soften like any pigment dyed shirt.
Please note that our neon shirts are fashion shirts, not safety worker shirts. Pigment dyes are not meant to have the same optical qualities recommended by ANSI for the safety of outdoor workers. For the safety of outdoor workers, the use of safety green and safety orange made by the large mills is recommended.
