Screen printing is hands-down the most popular method of decorating custom apparel. It's versatile enough to be used to create great-looking garments for sports teams, businesses, charities, and any other group that wants to get their brand or message on as many people as possible. It's also one of the most affordable options for custom apparel.

We built our business on screen printing and currently turn our nearly four million garments each year using the method. But is it right for every occasion?

Probably not.

That's why we offer so many other fantastic options, from embroidery to laser etching. Yes...laser etching. We literally use a laser to burn your design into a garment. It's as cool as it sounds.

So how do you choose which custom apparel option is right for you? Well, start by taking a look at the brief descriptions below. Then click on the links for a more in-depth look at any method you want to know more about.
