Thanks to a strong partnership with our fabric supplier and continued efficiencies in production and supply chain, we are excited to introduce a new, value-priced cotton tee. Standard Cotton tees are available in white, black, oxford grey and atomic green for only $4 each blank with a minimum order of 72 pieces!
So what’s the difference between this new tee and our current cotton tees?
It’s all about the type of cotton – standard versus ring-spun. Simply put, ring-spun cotton is nicer and feels softer – it’s a premium fabric. But why is that?
The processes for creating standard cotton and ring-spun cotton are totally different. Standard cotton is made from cotton fibers that are twisted together to make yarn, which is then knit to make fabric. Most of the big brand, high volume producers provide standard cotton tees which are less expensive to make.
Ring-spun cotton, on the other hand, is completely different. Ring-spun yarn is made by repeatedly twisting and thinning the cotton strands to make a very fine, strong, soft rope of cotton fibers before it is knit into fabric. Ring-spun cotton is more durable and lasts longer than standard cotton which also makes it more expensive.
So which is better: ring spun or regular cotton?
It’s hard to say. For a softer, more durable t-shirt, go with ring-spun. If you’re looking for a value priced option, standard cotton is a great choice. Order 144 pieces with a one-color print and your price is only $6 per tee for a fair trade shirt made of USA fabric! While it’s still not the least expensive custom tee on the market, it’s an amazing value for a fair trade tee that supports strong jobs in Haiti and the USA.
