So I’ve made some sales and ordered my own samples!
Here’s the low down:
Threadless T-Shirt Quality Review
The shirts are printed by Next Level Apparel. They’re nice. The tri-blend is the superior shirt in my opinion. Makes sense considering it’s a few dollars more expensive than the regular blend. It feels nice on the skin, and with this global warming, it’s nice to have a cool shirt.
Threadless T-Shirt Sizing Review
Maybe because I’m a guy, but I had no idea why women’s sizing is so small. I think the women’s medium is roughly equivalent to a men’s small. Good to know going forward. I’m a men’s medium and I’m super happy with the fit! Looks good too!
The kids print is nice, a bit big so it looks a bit odd, but I think that could be because kids are odd-sized anyway.
Threadless Printing Precision Review
Threadless uses a digital print. My friend is a screen printer and she let me know that screen printing is usually more superior, but costs more (due to chargers per colour). I think the digital print is good and let me get away with more colours. I found the scale of the weheartninjas were good and in proportion to the size of the shirt (threadless has this down!). I also found the print itself was on point compared to the design. The display colour product shots from the store front were more-or-less spot when actually printed.
Threadless Shipping Costs and Time Review
When I made my order for the shirts, I was nervous, as I knew the Canadian dollar sucks compared to the US right now. Then on top of that are the shipping costs and the duty costs. Thankfully Threadless offers a Standand Plus with Prepaid Customs option. I paid $30.75 US which was great as I didn’t have to deal with customs!
My order arrived about 7 business days from when I ordered it (I’m in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada). They also printed the shirts the first business day after my order. I’m still looking for a way to print in Canada, but eh, threadless has a good reputation, so what the hell!
