Find a garment printing house

Finding a garment printing house is crucial for your t-shirt business.

Garments are your primary product and completing extensive supplier research is beneficial so you can build a long lasting relationship with your supplier.

What should you look for when searching for your garment printing house?


This is the number one priority when looking for a garment house to partner with your t-shirt company. Make sure you contact each garment house and ask them several questions. This will give you an idea of how much they are willing to talk with you and respond to your questions.

If the garment printing house is not reliable on the phone or through email to start out, they will never be reliable when you start working with them.

You also want to talk to other companies or people who have worked with the garment printing house. Ask these people how their experience was and how reliable the company actually is. Do they have a quick turnaround? Are they always available to contact?

No outsourcing

Why should you never partner with a garment printing house that outsources their work?

  • Speed
  • Quality control

When a company outsources their work, there is little you can do to assure your own customers they will receive their orders on time. Also, the ability to feel and view the quality of the products you will be selling is minimized when the printing company outsources.

Large/proven garment printing house

There are only a small amount of garment printing companies in the UK, and most of the small to midsize companies simply outsource to the larger ones. Therefore, make sure you go with one of the major garment producers. This will ensure:

  • Speed
  • Credibility
  • Experience
  • References
  • Quality

So get out there and start narrowing down your list of which garment printing company will take your business to the next level.
