Here at PSI we print for all sorts of clients, and a main part of our client base is design / clothing labels. For all of our design label clients (amongst other things) we also take care of their custom tagging on the garments, this is where we include a customised tag (or tag print) on the shirts to replace the t-shirt brand tag.
But this shouldn’t be seen as something which is exclusively available to our clothing label clients. Custom tagging is a relatively inexpensive way to give a lot more credibility to your product and also to your brand as a whole, so whether you’re a Crossfit Gym, Band, Event organiser or any type of business where the garments are being resold or used for promotional purposes, custom tagging is a really important option to consider.
There are a few things to cover regarding your options with custom tagging, so let me break it down for you:

“I’m so glad I chose to print my designs on the cheapest t-shirts I could find…said no one ever!”
This something we have known for a long time but have only really shared it with people over the phone.
To see an image that really shows you side by side, the difference between a premium AS Colour t-shirt and a cheaper t-shirt, is super powerful.

In the t-shirt printing industry over the past few years, it has been trendy for companies to offer “Environmentally Friendly” printing services to their clients. Usually what they are really promoting is printing t-shirts with water based inks.
Now as someone who is an industry insider, let me shed some light on the reality of the situation.

All t-shirt suppliers use this code when describing their different garment options, and you might have been wondering, what is GSM? We thought we might go through that for you to help clarify this term.
GSM stands for Grams per Square Metre – so it’s referring to the weight of the fabric. However, a lot of people often form the opinion that lightweight fabric equals poor quality and heavyweight fabric equals good quality…..this is not always the case!
In fact, a lot of t-shirt suppliers who have lightweight t-shirts available actually charge more for this option.
So what does equal quality?

A few months back we were sifting through our enquiries we get through the website, and we came across an intriguing email. It read…
“Good afternoon from the UK. I am writing because I have a request. I work for a company called FESPA, we are a federation of associations in the Screen and Digital print industries. We also arrange events and exhibitions for the industry. In October this year we have an exhibition in Singapore (FESPA Asia www.fespaasia.com) Having identified your company as being the leader in online screen printing in Australia, I would very much like to have a conversation about the potential of your CEO/Managing Director being able to present to other screen printers in the Asia Pacific Region at our event. I look forward to hearing from you.”
Now…we do get all kinds of spammers through the website, so initially I put this down to some sort of Nigerian scam, but it certainly stroked the ego a bit so I had to check it out.

We have been stoked to work with Earth Hour over the last couple of campaigns to provide their t-shirt printing.
This year we donated the wardrobe for their TV commercial. All those people are wearing trackies and t-shirts that we supplied. They prepared a special branded copy for us. You can see it below…
Here is what was involved with doing their t-shirts…

This week we had the pleasure of printing t-shirts for the John Butler Trio.
Pictured above is a 6 colour discharge print. Discharge printing allows you to have a very soft feel on dark t-shirts. It basically removes the dye colour in the t-shirt and replaces it with the colour mixed into the discharge ink.

How do you like getting free stuff?
Last year, my email marketing service provider, MailChimp, sent me out a free t-shirt – http://blog.mailchimp.com/holiday-shirts/ – A cool print on an American Apparel tri-blend t-shirt.
Now for someone who deals with t-shirts all day, every day, you might not think that would be so cool, but honestly I was stoked.
I just got their newsletter and they had a little piece in it about visiting their t-shirt printers and at the end linked to an article by Adam Nash , VP of Product Management at LinkedIn.

Whether we like it or not, T-shirts that have been made in Australia are often more expensive than those imported from various other countries in the world, and most Australians aren’t so patriotic as to automatically spend considerably more on a T-shirt simply because it was made in Australia.
Any business wishing to compete with low-cost alternatives needs to provide additional sources of value to its customers, to warrant the difference in price. Money talks, but thankfully, it isn’t the only voice we heed. We also believe that we get what we pay for.
So what are these additional sources of value? Why buy Australian made T-shirts, rather than the cheaper ones imported from overseas?
Thanks to for all the assistance"The t-shirts arrived today and they look fantastic! Thanks to for all the assistance"
