How much does a t-shirt weigh?

One of the most common things people need to do with their screen printed shirts is get them posted out, e.g. to their customers, or to their team. But that isn’t as straightforward as you might think. If you’re selling online, you’re going to need to know how much is your t-shirt weight so you can charge or budget the right amount. And if you’re posting to another country, a small difference can really increase the shipping cost.

What’s the difference? Screen Printing vs Digital Printing

Screen Printing vs Digital Printing

We’ve previously written about what high quality screen printing is (and why we have thousands of happy customers through using it), but there’s another type of printing that you may have heard of called Digital Printing (which is also known as Direct To Garment, or DTG).

At Ramp, we use screen printing to print your t-shirts. Why? Well, we think it’s the best, most tried and tested method. But let’s look at DTG too.

Changing the perception of old age

Last month we printed some great tour t-shirts for ChangingAging. We were really interested in what they were doing. Their charismatic spokesperson is Dr Bill Thomas. He started with the idea that “what we need is a radical reinterpretation of longevity that makes elders (and their needs) central to our collective pursuit of happiness and well-being“.

In other words, society’s attitude to old-age is messed up and we could do much better.
