Custom Printed Tank-Tops

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW TO PREPARE A PRINTED TANK-TOP ORDER:

Fitness leisurewear is on the rise in Canada and custom tanks / tank-tops are perfect for bands, athletic wear, schools and more. 

DID YOU KNOW: High end casual brands are the fastest growing segment of the clothing market recently and there’s no signs of it slowing down!

Culturally, we’re getting more comfortable in casual styles of clothing. Customers, clients and even employees in Canada are now looking to wear tank tops more than ever, both unisex and ladies custom tank tops, so what should you know before ordering?

ECONOMY, QUALITY, OR SOMEWHERE IN THE MIDDLE

With a custom printed tank-top, you’re going to need to decide if you’re looking for something economical (for festival give-aways, 1 time events like bachelorettes, or as a value buy), or whether you’re buying for a clothing line where high-value can be essential to customer interest and sales.

You’ll want to decide where what your goals in terms of a final product.

FABRICS AND COST:

As with T-shirts, there are 100% basic cotton, 100% jersey cotton, dry-fits, polyester and other material blends that you can choose based on what kind of custom tank-top style your audience wants.

Different fabric and style options have different costs, and many buyers are surprised to find out that printed tank-tops are generally slightly more expensive than T-shirts, because (for now at least) they are produced in less volume world-wide and the production costs are a greater impact on product price.

Despite the expense, custom tank-tops and tank top printing are trending for both men and women, and there are many options available at different quality levels.

Tanks look great with a company logo or branded image, and they are great for layering in Canada weather.

COMMON OPTIONS:
  • Basic Unisex Tank-tops (cheapest custom tank-tops)
  • Ladies Racer-back (Razor-back)
  • Flowey Tank-tops
  • Tri-blend Tank-tops
  • Athletic Tank-tops
  • Ring-spun Cotton Tank-tops (good quality but also cheap tank-tops)
