What is Bulk T-Shirt Printing?

What exactly do we mean by bulk wholesale t-shirt printing? In essence, it’s as it sounds, producing large amounts of customised apparel. To explain further, let’s consider the best method of producing wholesale printed t shirts. For instance, our embroidery services are great for displaying premium logos and decorating items unsuitable for print. Another example, direct printing, is a winner for limited amounts of garments printed full colour with tons of detail and complex artwork.

However, the general consensus amongst UK printers is that the best bulk t shirt printing method is screen printing. When people talk about cheap bulk t-shirt printing, it generally equates to big numbers and automatic presses. That is to say, a task which sits on the senior screen printers desk. We’re often asked, how many t-shirts come in a bulk order? From our perspective, order 500 shirts or more and you’re into bulk territory.

How much does Bulk Printing Cost?

As with many commercial activities, printing in quantity offers economies of scale. Firstly, there is only one set up charge, whether you’re printing 100 cotton shirts or 10,000. Clearly, that cost is proportionately reduced with bigger quantities. Plus, although our prices are always competitive, we offer volume discounts with price breaks at 100/250/500/1000 and so on for bulk t shirt printing orders.

Naturally, there are variables. To illustrate, the number of colours in your design will play a part in overall price. Another factor is the cost of the blank garment. Good news with the latter, we have agreements with numerous unbranded clothing suppliers. That means cheap wholesale t-shirts, everything from fruit of the loom cotton to high tech performance fabrics. Which, in turn, brings down the final cost.

The advantages of bulk printing t-shirts

The most obvious benefit of printing bulk t-shirts is lower costs. Wholesale t-shirts represent the best value you’ll find when purchasing customised clothes. And that translates to an improved profit margin if you’re reselling and less outlay if procuring staff uniform. Needless to say, there are other advantages to printing in large amounts. Opting for wholesale also means you have reliable stock levels on your shelves and consistency to your branded merchandise.

Equally important, there’s the time saving you make not fretting over re-orders and stock issues. All in all, choosing wholesale t shirt printing, UK printers with a proven track record, has plenty of attractive aspects. Whether it be for big events, retail sales, charitable organisations, schools, wholesale workwear, or printing t-shirts for bands, teams and sporting pursuits.
