    see if you have anything local. my local guy was a lot cheaper than ordering online and i am only looking to get new shirts after 2 years because they are stained and torn, not because of the lettering

    We go through a small local company. The bigger companies try to sell you cheap quality shirts (Gildan) because they make the best profit off of them. The brand of the shirt makes all the difference. We use either : Hanes Beefy, AAA, or Pro T. They are the thickest most heavy duty shirts and they last forever.

    Go to a local shop. I love the Hanes Beefy T's. i dont see why people look online for stuff like this. You want people to invest in yur local business, so you should support other local businesses.

    ooshirts.com has decent prices for small quantities. All the local places to me where crazy expensive and had 50 min order. ooshirts.com has hoodies, the underarmor type t's and about any brand of shirt you could want. lots of colors and you can design the crap right on their website.

    yeah I can't complain. All mine are dirty as heck after just one season, but none of the lettering has faded or come off. I'll be getting another order in the next month or so. I got a hanes heavy weight hoodie and some hanes beefy T's both in long and short sleeve. I prefer the long sleeves in the hot miserable months cause I burn real easy. I noticed this place is offering those knock off under armour type things now too. The "moisture wicking" ones. I'll be ordering a few new hoodies and some of those long sleeve moisture wicking ones too.
