Moving On Up

What is the key ingredient to any successful screen-printing company? Waterfalls. No joke. You aren’t a legit company unless you’ve got two glass and stainless steel waterfalls mounted in your front lobby wall. At least that’s the philosophy that inspired our new workplace. Not only did we launch a distinctively different website and add 20 plus new faces to the staff but we also created a modern, spacious environment to accommodate all this awesomeness!

In Jan. 2007 the building process was put in motion; it started with drawings and constant rearranging of offices. By March we were ready to break ground. Seven months later, we were still waiting on the concrete guy to get started. Just kidding! In Sept. we began the arduous task of moving across the parking lot from the old building into the shiny new facility. Even though our current location is roughly twice the size of the former, we’ve managed to fill it up with new staff and equipment. [...]

The Right White Shirt

A t-shirt is just a t-shirt, right? Wrong. In fact there are countless differences between brands of shirts. These sometimes-subtle differences can be huge factors when trying to decide which shirt will work best for you. That’s where I can help! I took 5 different shirts that we offer and wore them for a week to test them out. The shirts I chose to include in my research were all 100% cotton basic white t-shirts.

American Apparel 2001
Alternative Apparel AA05
Hanes Beefy Tee 5180
Hanes Tagless Tee 5250
Gildan 2000

For the fashion forward readers (like myself) I would highly recommend the Alternative Apparel and the American Apparel tees. Both of these garments have a slimmer cut and a more vintage feel about them. American Apparel is produced entirely in the United States, unlike the others, but is at the higher end of the cost spectrum. The Alternative Apparel t-shirt has a more sheer quality to it and it is extremely soft and breathable. Currently the Alternative Apparel AA05 is not available on our site, but is making its debut in the coming weeks!

For the shopper on a budget, I would recommend the Gildan 2000. The 2000 is one of our top sellers due to its low price, superior fit and wide range of sizes. With over 60 colors in sizes small to 2X and select colors going up to 3XLT, the choices are limitless!

If you like a beefier tee that holds up to lots of hard wear and tear, Hanes is the brand for you. The Hanes Beefy Tee is wider cut than the other shirts, but is excellent for any athletic activities you may find yourself in. Also the Beefy 5180 tee and its Tagless 5250 counterpart come in a wide range of colors and sizes sure to fit anyone and any budget.

No matter which shirt you choose, you are bound to get a great deal and an even greater shirt, especially with BlueCotton.com on your side!
