For as long as charities have existed, so has the need for printed T-Shirts. They have in some way become synonymous with the image of a charity, a means of easily identifying charity workers so that passers-by can direct themselves to them. For this, and many other reasons we believe we should do our upmost to help charities. It goes without saying that charities are donation based and cannot afford to be paying out huge sums of money to invest in printed promotional merchandise, therefore we offer a 20% discount on all orders placed by charities or for charity events.
PRINTED T-SHIRTS AS CHARITY MERCHANDISE:
As we said earlier, printed T-Shirts are an essential part of any charity campaign, and there is definitely an art to getting it right. Think about the last charity you came into contact with, the last fundraiser you attended, or even last year’s children in need campaign at your local supermarket – they were all wearing printed T-Shirts complete with the charity’s logo on them, right?
Ok, so by now you probably get it, printed T-Shirts are important if you want your charity to make a real impression. In our experience, there is no better way to unite a cause than by dressing you and all your team members in the same outfit! Being part of something bigger is something we all want and if you have the right design which perfectly represents the charity’s ethos as well as your team’s drive to succeed, there is no bounds to the impact a printed T-Shirt can make!
Another huge benefit of T-Shirt printing is that a printed T-Shirts can be used to raise awareness! Print the charity objective across your T-Shirt and invite people to your cause. You can even use a variety of accessories that communicate an idea when worn with the printed T-Shirt. A brilliant example of this would be embroidered caps with a question about your industry accompanied by the answer to said question printed across the T-Shirt in a creative and artistic way, this is a guaranteed way to draw people in.
PERSONALISED TOTE BAGS WITH CHARITY LOGOS:
Another way which you can really make an impression when organising charity events is by investing in personalised tote bags. Tote bags were once a staple amongst housewives in the 1950’s and have since become one of the most useful pieces of printed promotional merchandise. At Garment Printing, we have become aware of the ever-growing popularity of personalised tote bags. Therefore, when considering promotional merchandise for your event, no matter what the scale, printed promotional products are one thing to keep in mind.
What better way to stand out than by representing your team with one of our printed promotional products: the printed tote bag. We have a range of bags that we use and are made of 100% cotton and can hold up to 18 litres of content, they measure from 35 x 39 x 13.5cm to 38 x 42cm, making them the perfect holdall.

BEST PRINTING TECHNIQUES FOR CHARITY MERCHANDISE:
Given that there is a plethora of promotional merchandise available from our range which can be personalised in a variety of ways that best suits your charity, this also means that there is no one printing technique that works best. So we thought we would give you a few ideas to help you decide.
When it comes to printed T-Shirts for charity events, in our experience there are few printing techniques better suited than screen printing. One of the most important aspects to printed T-Shirts for any charity is recognition, you need your public to be able to identify your charity with ease. With screen printing we are able to carry out Pantone colour matching to keep to the charities true brand colours! Another amazing benefit of screen printing that makes it the perfect technique is the speed of production. It is currently our fastest printing technique for printing in large volumes. So if you’re a founder of a charity looking to organise a large-scale event, this is definitely one to consider.
One of the drawbacks to screen printing is that the more colours a design has, the more expensive the order. So here’s a tip, if you’re looking for quality designs with a professional finish, stick to designs with one or two colours and your final quote will surely be a steal! In addition it’s worth noting that although screen printing doesn’t have a set minimum, we offer prices for 10 units, however we advise placing orders of 25 units or more!
When considering canvas bag printing for charity events, although screen printing is a brilliant option, you could also consider DTG (Direct to garment printing). DTG is the process of printing full-colour images onto garments. DTG printing can be used on both light and dark coloured garments. One of the perks to DTG is that there are no setup fees or minimum order quantity which means you can order as many personalised tote bags as you see fit to help support your cause. It also has a high speed of production which means it can produce high-quality prints within a few hours of receiving the order. Unfortunately we are unable to Pantone colour match with this printing technique, however we can make it as close as possible! So why not mix things up and place an order printed tote bags personalised through DTG!
