Family reunions, bachelor parties, school functions, sporting events — these are all occasions when it's fun to have customized, matching T-shirts. For those who are daunted by the thought of making all that coordination happen, Vivid Customs is your secret weapon.
The family-run, Houston-based printing and embroidery shop has streamlined the process so that it's easier than ever to sport your own unique designs. Whether you're looking to buy in bulk or just need one or two shirts, Vivid Customs has the high-quality options and speedy turnaround time everyone can appreciate.
Besides embroidery — which can be expertly applied to everything from business polos, hats, and jackets to towels and bags — Vivid Customs offers four printing techniques:
- Screen printing: Also known as silkscreen printing, this technique pushes ink directly onto the fabric using a squeegee, woven mesh screen, and ink-blocking stencil. It's ideal for solid-color designs, and the thicker ink produces a bright, opaque result even on dark garment. This is great for bulk printing.
- Digital printing: Newer and more tech-savvy, this style produces detailed results that look like a photographic print. No screens are needed, so this technique can be easily employed for even a single shirt.
- Thermal heat transfer: An image is directly adhered to the fabric using heat.
- Dye sublimation: Similar to thermal heat transfer, this technique stands out because the ink penetrates the fibers instead of lying on top of them. This means the image won't crack or fade, even after multiple washings. While this service is not offered on Vivid Customs' website, shop representatives would be more than happy to help assist.
Vivid Customs' easy-to-use design studio lets your imagination run wild. Choose your T-shirt style, color, and quantity, then either upload your own design or create one using dozens of fonts and clip art. There are also plenty of templates available to help kick-start the creative process, and you can email a designer at any time if you get stuck or have a question.
Quick and quality
Being located in Houston (as opposed to online-only) gives customers the valuable option of same-day printing and pick-up. It also means you can interact with a rep face-to-face and rely on their expertise in person, if online design and ordering isn't your preference. For those who aren't on a time crunch, free standard shipping is always available.
Sold on satisfaction
Every single Vivid Customs product comes with a 100-percent satisfaction guarantee. If anything doesn't measure up to your expectations, the shop will either re-do your order or provide a full refund.
