Because of their versatility and comfort, custom-printed shirts are the one article of apparel that will never go out of style. You can still look fantastic with a custom-printed shirt, a pair of jeans, and your favorite casual shoes. Or wear one with cotton slacks and a jacket for more of a dress-up look.
T-shirts can be worn all year long and there is no such thing as having too many of them.
Customization is a lot of fun and it’s becoming more popular every day. When you combine customization with t-shirts you have yourself a real winner.
A Variety of Printing Methods
Custom printed shirts vary by the type of fabric, style, and color. It stands to reason that certain methods of printing produce better results for certain types of shirts.
For example, Digital Fusion Printing (DTF), which you can apply yourself. Our experienced staff is available to assist you in your selection process. That’s why we’re here!

Who Is Graphic Impact And What Can You Tell Me About Your Company?
We are a local, family business founded in 1989. Almost all of our products are manufactured in house. We make it a point to do as much business locally as possible and you see our products everywhere. Most of the larger companies in town are our customers. Companies (and friends) are folks like the University of Arizona Athletics Department, Banner Health, TMC, Raytheon and Pima County. But don't let that fool you. We also have over 20,000 smaller customers and they love us. A lot of people think we can do anything, but we're very careful about telling our customers that.
What Are Your Feelings About Taking Care Of The Environment?
We're pretty serious about it! Most of our equipment runs on solar. We don't believe that organic solvents should be used in any industrial environment. And that sustainability is something that we believe in. It's one of the reasons that we try to keep screen printing to a minimum.
There Are Hundreds Of Shirts We Would Like To Have Printed. There Are Only a Couple of Colors And Price Is a Major Factor!
Screen Printing is the answer in this case. There are set-up costs and deliveries are a little longer. But with larger quantities there probably will be a cost savings. We can do a thorough analysis and recommend the best way to proceed with the project.
Should I Invest In Large Inventories So I will Always Have Product On-Hand?
Maybe, not such a good idea! Knowing that you can get as many as needed in 1-3 business days. Here's another idea, Graphic Impact has also designed and manged sites for our customers. We handle deliveries, billing and much more. If this sound like something that makes sense for you, give us a call.
