Why are some T-shirts more expensive than others?

Have you been in a scenario where you and your friends from a different class paid a different amount for your club/class tees and wondered why?

In this article, we are going to list out a few reasons why are some T-shirts more costly than the others.

Material & Quality

For a fair comparison, we need to take into account that the prices will vary due to the material of the T-shirt. Even they’re of the same material, cotton/dri-fit, there is also a different grade of the respective materials, but the cost difference shouldn’t be more than $2-$3 for this instance.

Number of colours in the design print

To put it simply, more colours on the T-shirts will increase the printing’s complexity. Thus, it will be more costly for you to have more colours on the shirt. As the rule of thumb goes, keep your expectations simple if you dont want to be paying too much for it.


According to the economics of scale, a higher demand for the same product would result in a lower cost for it. In this case, a larger group of like-minded people getting the T-shirts would mean a more affordable price for everyone. To put it in an informal manner, it would be “Buy more got discount right?”


A lot of consumers disregard this point especially when comparing prices. We all know places that we can get a haircut for $5 and $50 right?  The difference is in the service rendered to the consumers.The 3 most common feedback we received about other services are,i. Item delivered not as described.
ii. Item delivered late, not as per promised deadline.
iii. Poor after-sales-service, went MIA (Missing in Action) after collecting full payment.

As the rule of thumb goes saying “You pay peanuts, you get monkeys”. In the midst of finding the T-shirt Printing service provider that can give you the best bang for your buck, do be careful that you are not compromising too much for it.
