Sublimated Printing

Another cool way to set your shirts apart is with an all-over sublimated print on the shirt or pocket! We even have a custom pocket sample tee you can purchase and see for yourself. 

Specialty Inks & Custom Dye

Embolden your t-shirts by printing with specialty ink types like metallic or puff ink on your custom tees. Unlike our standard ink types, these specialty inks produce a unique texture and style that instantly distinguish your apparel from the competition. Create a custom dye with your logo colors, and we can tie dye shirts for you! Add your printed logo or design on top of the tie-dye in white or black ink to make them pop on the designs, like this custom dye sample sweatshirt or custom dye sample tank in our sample store.

Color blocking

Are you looking for a subtle way to convey your brand colors? Threadbird’s cut & sew service allows you to tailor the sleeve colors of the shirt or the collar of your ringer tee.  We can also Pantone match shirts to your brand color palette. Speaking of matching, you can even design your very own matching apparel sets, with a custom tee and matching shorts or joggers to complete the look! This growing fashion trend isn’t going away, so why not lean into it by creating your own branded apparel set that is totally different from the rest?

Four Stages of Customization:  

Unlike other printers, our team at Threadbird is made up of real people who are passionate about bringing your custom products to life. Our skilled designers are dedicated to attention to detail and craftsmanship, ensuring your digital mockups are a perfect representation of your custom products. We're here to guide you through the process of designing your own t-shirt, every step of the way.

  1. Once your order is submitted, a Customer Specialist from our team is personally assigned to guide you throughout the process (offering recommendations on garments, fabric choices, sizing, and customization options). At the same time, your artwork files are sent to our creative team. 
  2. And so, the collaboration process begins! Our team of designers incorporates all of the details, custom features, and inspiration for your vision by crafting a digital tech pack of your products. This tech pack includes a vector mockup of your custom shirts with your designs and outlines all of your specifications to make sure it aligns perfectly with your vision. We then send this tech pack to you for you to review and approve. 
  3. Based on your feedback, our designers collaborate with you to make the necessary final adjustments and revisions to your custom shirts. From here, we start sourcing samples of the garment materials and custom features for your shirts to ensure they're satisfactory. If so, then we go on to production!
  4. Our team works with various manufacturers to invent your custom creation! 
  5. Threadbird adds any finish apparel touches (custom tags, folding & bagging) to your products. Then we package and ship  your orders right to you! We can also store your product inventory, manage and fulfill your orders, and ship them directly to your customers.
