Custom T-Shirt printing is back at Clubcard Vancouver with a new and very improved method of production known as DTF (Direct To Film) Printing. This modern print method provides shirt printing quality that rivals the look, feel and durability of silk screen printing.
We offer a range of Gildan and Next Level Apparel T-shirts in a variety of colours to print on including;
Gildan Ultra Cotton T-shirts with a heavyweight fabric providing structure and durability in a wide selection of colours. These tees are made with sustainably and fairly grown USA cotton with a tear away label constructed with a seamless double-needle 7/8" collar, taped neck and shoulders and.double-needle sleeves and bottom hem.
Next Level Apparel Unisex Cotton T-shirts are made with 100% combed ringspun cotton making this an ultra soft form-fitting tee for all. This casual vibe side-seemed t-shirt is available in an array of colours and has a 1x1 baby rib-knit set-in collar.
With over 29 years of print and customer service experience Clubcard is proud to be the print shop trusted to create t-shirts for Canadian artists, entrepreneurs and designers in every Province and Territory.
