5 reasons to choose Fruit of the Loom T-Shirts

In this latest guide, we explore the main reasons why you should opt for Fruit of the Loom t-shirts for bulk buys, as well as why they're one of the go-to brands for printing. 

Let's get started!

1. There are great bulk buy discounts

While price doesn't matter so much when buying just one t-shirt, once you start buying more; obviously any expenses suddenly become massively magnified. If you're looking to get plain t-shirts to print on, the chances are that you'll want a fair few of them. Whether it's a one-off promo for your band's event or a t-shirt that employees can wear at your new coffee shop cooperative, you might be purchasing hundreds, maybe even thousands of items.

Fruit of the Loom t-shirts are a great option when it comes to buying in bulk. They can start at just over £1 per t-shirt, meaning that before you add on the associated expenses of shipping, design, and printing on the t-shirts, an order of a thousand t-shirts can put you back by only around £1000.

2. They're great for printing on

If you're buying your plain t-shirts with the intention of printing something on them, then you'll want to choose a material that will produce great results. While a significant part of the printing process relies on the method used to print, and the quality of the inks, you can't expect a high-quality result if the medium is of low quality. In a lot of cases, these t-shirts are going to be worn for quite a while by people who will be representing your brand or cause. If the t-shirt starts to look faded and worn in just a few months, that, in turn, reflects poorly on your brand. In addition, you want the t-shirt to make people intrigued to think 'wow' - that won't happen if they can't even make the design out after a few washes. 

Fruit of the Loom t-shirts offer an excellent, highly stable medium to print your design of choice. They're made from an open-yarn material that's amazingly smooth, with a wide range of different densities depending on your requirements. Fruit of the Loom t-shirts can hold your design accurately for years to come, acting as a wearable advertisement that keeps on giving, in time, becoming a loved hand-me-down that's kept in the family. 

3. Fruit of the Loom t-shirts are tried and trusted by many companies

While statistics and product descriptions are important when assessing an item's quality, it's also important to look at reviews and testimonials. Fruit of the Loom t-shirts have been tried, tested, and used by thousands of businesses and brands. Look through anyone's t-shirt collection, and it's highly likely that they'll have at least one example from Fruit of the Loom. Whether from a concert attended during their teenage years or from a museum visit while travelling to Italy as a student, what'll almost always be surprising is the quality of the items after all those years.

If anything persuades you to trust Fruit of the Loom t-shirts, it should be this. They're clearly doing something right; otherwise, they wouldn't enjoy the loyalty of so many customers year after year. While in some cases, it can be important to branch out and try something new, with something as fundamental as t-shirts, once you find a supplier that can reliably supply an impressive product at a low price, it's worth playing it safe and sticking with that option.

4. They're made from a high-quality material

As mentioned before, there's no point spending a bunch of money having a run of t-shirts designed and printed if they're going to fall to pieces. It's a false economy to buy low-quality items - you'll make minimal savings compared to the rest of the overall process and produce a subpar product that people won't like. And this part is important - people have to like the t-shirts. If someone doesn't enjoy wearing something, they won't - it's as simple as that. Fruit of the Loom t-shirts are made of high-quality cotton that's breathable, soft, and comfortable to wear.

As a result of that high quality, they also wash well, meaning that they're less likely to fade over time or shrink to an unwearable size. At the end of the day, while people want to wear items with a nice design, they won't be the ones looking at them all day. They'll also consider comfort as a primary factor. We all have that one t-shirt that we've had for ages and ages and wear all the time, despite having no idea what the design is about. If you can make something that's comfortable and has a catchy design, you'll have perfected the custom t-shirt design process. 

5. You'll be impressed by the variety of options

Finally, when designing and mass-producing a t-shirt, you don't want to be limited by your options. Depending on the target audience, you'll want a wide range of sizes and other options to choose between to ensure that you can get things just right. Fruit of the Loom definitely excels in this area. They have a children's range, with small options, and adult sizes ranging from XS up to 5XL, so you can provide t-shirts with complete accessibility in mind. 

They also have a wide range of different weights and cut styles, so you can get something that suits your brand down to a T. With different material options and necklines, you'll be sure to find something you like. As you can see, there are multiple reasons why Fruit of the Loom t-shirts are so incredibly popular worldwide. From a wide range of sizes to high-quality fabrics, Fruit of the Loom offers impressive value for money, especially when ordering in bulk. As you can see, there are plenty of reasons why this brand is such a trusted name. From price and material quality to the sheer number of t-shirt variations alone that they offer, you're in the right place with Fruit of the Loom.
