Worldwide, cotton has always been an excellent choice for clothing fabric, but it’s even more popular than ever in modern custom t shirt design. Let’s look at some of the reasons why Australians love cotton and why it’s ideal for custom printing.
In the heat, we want a fabric that is light and allows our skin to stay clean. Cotton absorbs heat and sweat, then passes it through the material to the outside air. It also acts as an insulator when worn under clothing in colder climates. This breathable quality is perfect for the diverse Australian weather.
It is hypoallergenic
T-shirts made from 100% cotton are suitable for people with sensitive skin and won’t cause allergic reactions. Cotton is naturally resistant to allergens, moisture and odours which makes it hypoallergenic.
Although soft to the touch, cotton is durable and more resistant to wear and tear than many fabrics. It stands up to long hours in harsh environments without weakening. Your logo or design will look fresh well into a long day.
It’s a blank canvas
Cotton makes an excellent screen printing surface. Its density absorbs ink and ensures your designs look crisp. It also doesn’t bleed as some other fabrics do, so your design displays true colours.
Cotton is an ideal fabric for custom t-shirt designs. The cotton we use at PrintLocker is WRAP (Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production) certified. We also only use water-based inks and offer organic products too. Contact us to find out how we can help you personalise your t-shirts today.
