Tried and true spirit wear includes garments like T-shirts, sweatshirts and tie-dyes. And the tried and true decorating method is screen printing. You might think this is too ordinary, but it works!

They are garments people can wear often — at school, at the store or at home. Your customers will be more willing to make a purchase if they can get something they can wear anytime. Standard screen printed spirit wear has no limits with regards to a target market. It’s perfect for people of all ages and social status. If you ask our clients who have put on successful spirit wear programs, most of them will tell you to stick to the basics. The tried and true spirit wear just sells.
