Return to Compressed T-shirts information
How do you do it?
Specially engineered machines basically vacuum pack the shirt into solid shapes. All air and moisture is removed leaving a cotton brick in your selected shape. The t-shirt will not spring apart when opened but will remain solid until water is added.
Do the wrinkles come out?
Yes. Wash once or twice as you would with other printed garments, preferably inside out. If you choose to iron, do not iron over design.
What type of fabric is use?
Anything made of 100% cotton such as t-shirts, beach and sport towels, boxer shorts and socks etc. The fibers are strong and have the memory to bounce back after washing. Garments made with blends such as 50/50 cotton/polyester have a difficult time with the rigors of compression packaging.
Are T-shirt used for Canadian orders NAFTA friendly?
We use the M&O brand of t-shirt which is 100% cotton and NAFTA friendly, which is important since production takes place in California.
Can I have a design on both front & back of my T-shirt?
We can imprint any location on the t-shirt including both sleeves but it can get costly. For the best pricing and promotional impact we recommend a front left chest.
Does the ink smear or crack?
No, our special folds and preparation of the properly cured printed T-shirts prevents damage to inks.
Do you have a minimum order?
The price list starts at 144 and there will be some set-up fees associated with these small quantities.

2 to 3 weeks.
