Apparel vendor suggestions

Any suggestions for screen printing/apparel vendors? We used one company in the past, but were not completely satisfied with the quality of the printing, therefore we are looking for a company that is reasonably proceed (obviously!), and offers good selection of athletic products (tees, tanks, sweats, etc).

Also, what has been your experience with "online stores", if your gym has used one. Are they effective, easy to work with, etc? Any suggestions of companies which would host such a thing are also appreciated.

Thanks so much for your input!

Re: Apparel vendor suggestions

Here is a GREAT thread (WFS, obvs) from the archives that I have returned to a few times over the years to re-read. It's the best single piece of content on apparel for boxes I've ever read.

That said, the way we do shirts for Fringe is we order the "blanks" (unprinted shirts) from a distributor. We tend to always use NextLevel Tri Blend. Those shirts offer a great athletic fit, feel great on the athlete, and crumple to a floor mid-WOD like no other

We have a few local printers that we work with to print on the blanks- we deliver the blanks to them and have them print and deliver the completed shirts back to us. Picking a local vendor is based on recommendations, yelp, and talking with the vendor about pricing and expertise. If you're unhappy with a current vendor, switch! There are plenty of companies doing screen printing.

For items that we don't do a lot of volume in, many print shops are HAPPY to order some blank pants, etc for you and print on them since they then get to make $$ on the printing and a markup on the apparel.

Hope this helps!
