We print on 185g/m2 (4.5 oz.), (White T-shirts: 180 g/m², White V-necks: 141 g/m²) 100% Preshrunk cotton tees* which are super soft and comfy. Be sure to check out the sizing guide before ordering. Also keep in mind that the final product can somewhat differ from what you see on visualization. Due to multiple setup options on each monitor, colours of tees and on designs can look a bit different in real life.
White women's T-shirts are a bit wider than the rest (about 3cm).
Our hoodies are pullover hoodies. If you want to see front of the hoodie go here.
* heather grey shirts are 90% cotton/10% poliester
Every 100% cotton shirt may shrink a bit after the first wash. We use pre-shrink cotton tees so they tend to shrink less than others but you must be aware that your OtherTee may shrink 1-3 cm. So if you’re between two sizes we would advise going for the larger one :)
We would advise to turn your OtherTee inside out before washing, wash it at 30 degrees Celsius and hang it out to dry. This way it will shrink less. You also shouldn’t iron the design directly under any circumstances so it’s best to turn your shirt inside out before ironing. This way your shirt will have a long and happy life :)
You should check out our sizing chart first. Then grab your favourite shirt, lay it flat on table, etc. and measure it’s length and width just like it’s shown on our sizing chart. Be advised that your shirt might have shrunk from it’s original size so if you’re between two sizes we would advise going for the larger one. This way you’ll get your perfect size.
Each OtherTee is printed with the best possible method which is of course screen printing.
Screen printing or silk screening is a printing technique particularly suited for flat or relatively flat surfaces. The heart of the process involves a fine mesh or screen that is tightly stretched around a rigid frame. The areas that are not to be printed are masked out on the screen. To create the print, the framed screen is positioned over the item to be printed along with a dollop of thick ink. A squeegee is then used to press the ink through the screen. The masked areas prevent ink from passing through, but the unmasked areas allow the ink to be imprinted on the material. The final step is to send the item on a conveyor belt through a heat-tunnel. This curing process ensures that the inks dry quickly so that they materials can be stacked or packaged. Properly cured inks will remain on the printed substrate even under harsh conditions.
