Focus on: Gildan T-Shirts – 100% Cotton
Welcome to the first in a short series of articles on some of the major brands that make up the Revolution Shirts catalogue. Today we are taking a look at the 100% cotton Gildan T-Shirts available from Gildan Activewear. You can click on any of the product images in this article to go straight to that item in our catalogue.
Gildan was founded in 1984 and provide a wide range of blank garments on to which we can print or embroider your designs. In fact, there are almost 70 different lines to choose from in our catalogue from the Gildan stable. This includes Polo Shirts, Sweatshirts, Hoodies and more but for this article we will look at their range of cotton T-Shirts.
Gildan SoftStyle® Ringspun T-Shirts
Gildan T-Shirts are among our most popular items. The GD01 – SoftStyle® Ringspun T-Shirt is a great choice for Screen Printing large orders due to it’s low cost and wide range of colours and sizes. It is available in sizes from small to 3xl and comes in a choice of 54 colours. The equivalent for women is the GD72 – Gildan SoftStyle® Ladies Fitted Ringspun T-Shirt and for kids it is the GD01B – Gildan Kids SoftStyle® Ringspun T-Shirt.
Gildan Heavy Cotton™ T-Shirts
The SoftStyle® T-Shirts are very comfortable and lightweight. If you want something a bit heavier then check out the GD05 – Gildan Heavy Cotton™ T-Shirt. This garment is a little heavier at 180gsm as opposed to the 153gsm of the GD01. Sizes go up to 5xl but it comes in slightly fewer colours although there are still 51 to choose from. This T-Shirt has versions for Women, Kids and Toddlers in the GD95, GD05B and GD05P respectively. Prices are the same as for the GD01.
Gildan Premium Cotton® T-Shirts
In addition to these Gildan also offer the GD08 – Gildan Premium Cotton® T-Shirt. This T-Shirt is slightly heavier at 185gsm and is slightly more expensive but offers a premium feel and top quality while still being very competitively priced. It is available in sizes from small to xxl and 20 different colours. This is quite a long way down from the 54 colours of the GD01 but still a comprehensive selection. There is also a ladies version of this T-Shirt; the GD90 – Gildan Ladies Premium Cotton® T-Shirt.
Gildan Ultra Cotton™ T-Shirts
Finally, at least as far as 100% cotton t-shirts are concerned, we have the GD02 – Gildan Ultra Cotton™ T-Shirt. These weigh in at 203gsm and are available in sizes small to 5xl. Like the GD01 these t-shirts are available in 54 colours so you are sure to find a suitable shade. They are also priced very similarly to the GD08. If you were looking to decorate a T-Shirt with embroidery then a heavier example, such as this one, would be recommended.
