Tees are still the Number 1 most popular promotional item and branded merchandise for companies and events. It’s also the one item that customers love to get and wear to show off company pride and royalty. So if you are designing to be screenprinted and selecting a tee for your next marketing campaign, what are the best new t-shirt styles that will kick it up a notch?
100% heavy cotton is nice, but in the last few years soften cotton fabrics such as rung spun cotton or cotton blends such as the Bella Canvas triblend t-shirts are becoming big favorite because they are just so comfortable to put on and its retail fit appeals to most people.
For employees who work outside or sports events, moisture wicking tees such as the new Hanes Cool Dri Performance Tee will keep them nice and dry while wicking the sweat away. No longer for just athletes and working out, many constructions, and outdoor workers are benefiting much for this advanced fabric. Also check out moisture wicking caps to keep the sun away.
Blank apparel is catching up with retail much quicker these days, we are starting to see loose and oversize fit t-shirts which looks great over skinny jeans or leggings. It’s a much more fashionable choice for companies who have a younger customer base. The Bella Canvas relaxed short sleeve shirt has a looser fit than the regular woman’s t-shirt, and not as wide and boxy as a unisex tee. It’s the perfect shirt for summer, and for lounging.

Wider necklines for both men and women seem to be a trend these days, it can be worn on or off shoulder, such as the Bella Canvas Flowy off shoulder long sleeve tee. For men the Bella Canvas wide neck tee shows off a different neckline for men. They are relaxed fit and puts a different spin on the traditional crew neck tee.
If crewneck shirt is your thing why not dress it up with a pocket? Pocket shirts are a fun way to add style to a regular t-shirt. Imprints can be done on the pocket too to make it extra special. Check out the Bella Canvas men’s jersey pocket shirt.
Color and patterns are simple ways to make a shirt more fun or sophisticated. Colorblock tees such as this Sport-Tek colorblock tee, stripes, are popular among sports teams and fans. Marbled, burnout, acid washed, power washed tees, these are all different techniques and blends to creating interesting looking patterns on fabrics. A gray t-shirts have never looked so good!
