Benefit of 100% Polyester T-Shirts
Once upon a time, polyster was considered to be a horrid fabric that would keep you warm in the summer and you would sweat your butt off. Today, that is no longer true! 100% polyster (also know as dri-fit t-shirts) shirts are now on of the most popular t-shirt fabrics on the market today. Check out some of the benefits of polyester athletic t-shirts.
- Polyester Stays Dry – Cottons absorbs moisture, polyester does not. If you need a stay dri fit garment for boating, athletics or any other wet environment, polyester is going to be a great option.
- Shrinks Less – Polyester is way less likely to shrink as compared to its cotton competitior. If you are sick and tired of cotton shrinkage, polyester is your friend.
- No Wrinkles – Have trouble with ironing? Polyester is a great solution to help you look better and stay wrinkle free.
Frequently Asked Questions about order Custom T-Shirts
While customers love the performance of polyester moisture wicking tees, they do not love the shiney look and feel. Cotton touch or cotton feeling polyesters have the same performance you would expect, but are designed to look and feel more like cotton - even though they are not.
Blended shirts tend to have a combo of fibers that can include cottons, polyesters, rayon and even spandex. Take a look at the % of polyester, the more polyester in the shirt the more moisture wicking and performance will exist.
It is recommended to wash your polyester tees, infact, all polyester products without fabric softner. Fabric softner can clog the pores of the material, reducing the performance quality of the fibers. This can also cause your polyesters to smell.
Generally, yes. You can choose snag-resistent fabrications for a reduced change, but there is no such thing as snag-free polyester tees. The cotton touch ones will also have reduced snagging.
Our no minimum printing method is done via Direct to Garment digital printing. That digital printer uses water based inks, which are best with cotton fibers. If we print polyester with that print method, your shirt will be dull, fibery and just generally not great. Screen printing is the preferred method for printing on polyester tees.
Cotton Feeling Polyester?!
While some people love the 100% polyester shirts due to the performance athletic properties, not everyone loves that slickly feel. Cotton has been long considered one of the most comfortable fabrics and people want to have their cake and eat it too when it comes to custom poly shirts. Large name manufatures have started to recognize this need so have started making 100% polyester shirts that have more of a cotton feel. If you love the feeling of cotton but want custom performance shirts, try those out.
Some Things to Consider with Polyster
Although polyester has a lot of great properties, you do have to consider some of what could be considered downsides of polyester. Polyester shirts have a reputation of showing off “man boobs”. Polyster athletic t-shirts also have the ability to snag and pill much more easily than cotton products. If you like the dri-fit properties of polyester but are concerned about the downsides, consider a blended product or even a tri-blend. Those have both been popular options for athletic wear.
