What people love about Gildan’s range is that it’s undeniably stylish and designed and made to the highest quality. But for businesses looking to make good returns on selling printed T-shirts, or just those organisations that are looking to keep costs down on the clothing, Gildan’s ability to produce high quality in bulk is a hugely attractive proposition.
One of the most popular brands for these clients is Gildan. They are beautifully dyed, so you can be reassured the colour you order is the colour they get, which is vital when you are designing graphics to match certain designs.
Another big client of ours is those supplying their teams with casual uniforms. Gildan T-shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies are perfect for a whole range of commercial uses because they are smart without being too formal. Waiting teams in restaurants and cafes look great in them, especially when they have logos printed or embroidered on them. Engineers working in garages wear them, as do sales teams, playgroup leaders, sports instructors, call centre staff and all manner of jobs where comfort and uniformity are important.
There’s no doubt that the garment most associated with Gildan is the T-shirt. They’re always super soft thanks to high quality cotton, and many come pre-shrunk so you can wash them time and again without worrying about them losing their shape or size. Also important for re-sellers like T-shirt printing companies, the label can be torn off many of the designs, so you can leave it blank or label it with your own company’s branding.
Gildan T-shirts also come in all the styles you could ever want, too. At the more formal end of the spectrum are the polo shirts, which have a smart collar that adds a little neatness to the neck. Most tees are crew neck, however, a cheaper and more casual alternative that’s easier to layer under a sweater, sweatshirt or shirt. Check out the sleeve lengths, too; they range from quite short to elbow-length, and cuts are slim or loose fit, so make sure you choose the right ones.
Gildan’s sleeveless tee shirts and vests are popular with fitness companies, giving maximum airflow while staying covered. Again, watch out for the fit, as some are loose and others slimmer. The company also makes superb sweatshirts and hoodies, which are popular among businesses kitting out their staff for work outdoors or where they want to portray more of a street vibe.
Finally, Gildan also makes the complete range of children’s tops – T shirts, sweatshirts and hoodies. They’re perfect for schools, clubs, sports teams and wherever you want to give kids a uniform look without them being in an actual uniform. Gildan hoodies have proved popular for leavers’ tops, given out to kids on their last day of school, printed with the name of the school and often the names of all the fellow students as they all go their separate ways. It’s good to know it’ll last years.
Colours, printing and embroidery
If there’s one thing you can be sure of with Gildan, it’s that whatever colour you want your T-shirt, hoodie, sweatshirt or vest top in, we’ll stock it. Some of the more popular styles, such as the basic polo shirt, come in no fewer than 30 different colours, from black to white and with every primary and secondary colour, plus a wide choice of hues in between. This is absolutely crucial when you’re kitting out a team and you have a strong corporate identity.
Another way to make your tops really look the part is to have them emblazoned with your own branding. ScreenTextiles are experts at taking your designs and transferring them to garments with high quality printing techniques. You can have words, logos or images printed front, back or down the sleeves, or any combination of these locations.
A final touch is embroidery. We can give your tops embroidered logos throughout, or even embroider individuals’ names or positions on the tops, for a really stand-out and professional look.
Gildan was formed in the mid 1980s in Canada, and has since grown into a truly multinational brand, with manufacturing, design, distribution and retail a truly global operation. In fact, some of Gildan’s brands are a lot more famous than the parent company itself: American Apparel, Under Armour and New Balance spring to mind.
