Where to buy the best shirts for Vinyl

Todays post is from SO MANY COMMENTS on Instagram! Everyone wants to know where the best place to buy shirts to put heat transfer vinyl on! I already wrote up a post here about vinyl blanks–and I included some link there. BUT today we are delving deeper! I have been buying shirts…..so many shirts. I wanted an honest comparison of ALL the shirts. (Okay–I bought a ton…but not ALL of them!)  So here we go! The very best t-shirt blanks to buy! 

These shirts are all from Jiffy Shirts. I trust Jiffy shirts. Loads of options and FAST shipping! 

Another sidenote: You do have to have spend $59 to get free shipping. So if you just need one shirt-you might want to head to Walmart or Hobby Lobby. But if you are making a whole bunch of shirts to sale or for family reunions this is your place! I’m always making shirts so I just made sure I had every color in my size.

Okay. Let’s Jump in! My very FAVORITE SHIRT to buy from Jiffy Shirts is…

drumroll.

parum pum pum pum.

Bella Canvas Unisex.

It is so soft and falls really well on the body. This is Unisex size–most of the shirts in my review are! The shirt is pretty true to size and there is minimal shrinkage. *I was in the pool*

I also should mention…99 colors. 99 

It is not the cheapest of all the shirts-but it’s buttery soft and if you are selling these-I promise your customers will LOVE THEM!

I used them for when I made my sister and mom all Disney shirts!

For the record- I tried the ladies’ favorite t-shirt.  

It is super soft too–but ran EXTREMELY Small. I sized up two sizes! I do like it under my overalls. 

 

SECOND FAVORITE SHIRT:

Next Level Unisex

It compares in softness and fit. The only reason why it’s number two and not number one is that the color options are nearly as good as bella canvas! It does have all the basics- and the price is the same–but if you want a peach or periwinkle–hit up Bella Canvas.

I did buy the cvc–it’s 100% ringspun cotton fine jersey –so it’s more expensive. But side by side I couldn’t really feel a difference! 

( I also bought the ladies fitted shirt–and same things as the Bella Canvas one–it ran small! 

 

THIRD FAVORITE SHIRT: 

Gildan Softstyle 

This one is a little bit cheaper. Very soft and has good color choices. I haven’t washed it yet to see how it holds up! 

Now I’m just going to run through some others and give you a rundown of what I think:

Gildan 50/50

Not as soft. But cheaper. 

 

Fruit of the Loom softspun:

Nice. Not nearly as soft and not nearly as many colors. 

 

Jerzeez

This one is soft- but limited colors and a little more expensive. 

 

AnVil Lightweight:

Not a bad shirt-not as soft but less expensive! 

 

Comfort colors (this one came in midweight)

Too heavy. Reminds me of the t-shirts from youth. 

I splurged and got the Alternative shirt. I wanted to see what was so much better about it for being so much more expensive than the rest.

I actually like it…but not worth the price tag! 

 

Bella Canvas Ringer shirt

I love this shirt! I only wish it came in more colors!

 

BONUS: I grabbed a Bella Canvas Sweatshirt! I LOVE IT SO MUCH! The sleeves are long. The material is soft and I basically want to live in them! 

I snagged a Hanes version of this sweatshirt–but not as soft! 

So if you are looking for a long sleeve, tank, raglan t or kids t-shirt–I would stick with Bella Canvas! There are actually quite a lot of good reviews on the website! 

Here is an image you can pin to save for later!
