GSM Of Custom T-Shirts
GSM (grams per square meter). The thickness and quality of a t-shirt can be quickly judged by its gsm.
We do not recommend anything less than 150 gsm for custom t-shirts as they won’t last long.
Recommended gsm for collar polo t-shirts
180 gsm, 200 gsm, 220 gsm, 240 gsm, 280 gsm
Any gsm more than 280 gsm for collar polo t-shirts will make the t-shirt very thick and uncomfortable to wear

Making Of Custom T-Shirts
Raw cotton is made into yarn through the process of spinning. Yarn is then made into bundles.
Yarn is the bundle of threads used in the making of the fabric for the t-shirt.
Knitting is the process that makes yarn into fabric. Yarn is fed into the knitting machines. Knitting machines have a lot of needles that closely knit the yarn into fabrics.
Circular knitting machines (single knit and double knit) are the most widely used knitting machines.
The best circular knitting machine is: Mayer & Cie
After knitting the fabric is passed out as rolls.
Dyeing is the process that colors the knitted fabric as per our requirement.
The best fabric dyeing machine is: Thies
This is an optional process for 100% cotton fabrics only
The dyed fabric is pre-washed for special specifications with a mixture of some acid and enzymes.
The bio wash process takes place at a very high temperature so that pilling is avoided.
The very small, minute, almost invisible thread protruding on the fabric is cut and break down through this process.
Bio wash makes the fabric very soft, fine, smooth and silky and gives the fabric a uniquely bright and glossy look.
Screen printing, digital printing, hybrid digital printing look brighter on bio-wash fabric than on non-bio wash fabric.
Compacting is the process to avoid shrinkage of the fabric in the future.
