Bella Canvas Review

Our Bella Canvas Review found that following in the tradition of some of the best and largest American companies (Apple, Amazon, Disney and Google to name just a few), Bella Canvas was started in a garage. In 1992, best friends Danny Harris and Marco DeGeorge were just out of high school when they started their screen printing company. Their big break came when Sega launched Hedgehodge and the duo got a huge order from Sega. That order launched their scrappy little garage business into a screen printing giant named Color Image. And from that the pair spun into the world of retail and into apparel manufacturing.

The screen printing beginning of Bella Canvas means the company understands the needs of the screen printer. And from the start, Danny and Marco looked for gaps in the apparel business. They soon realized that no one was producing a true fitted women’s T-shirt. Rather, most companies were simply selling a men’s small as a women’s shirt. So the company set its sights on rectifying that oversight. And today, they have some of the most fashion-forward fits and colors on the apparel market.

The company’s headquarters in Los Angeles, California are set up like a campus with three buildings. They have sales, production, quality control in one building that is attached to a production factory where 300,000 units are produced in a single week. There is also a community kitchen and a gym with a yoga studio studio for employees. This sense of community is an important component of the brand. Another important characteristic of the Bella + Canvas brand is an eco-friendly sensibility. The company is completely paperless and everything gets recycled. Only recycling bins are under desks. So if you have to throw something in the trash, you have to hunt down a trash can.

L.A.T An Industry Innovator

LAT fam


LAT Sportswear has been in the blank apparel business for over thirty years. During this time the company has gone from being the innovator and pioneer of Rabbit Skins the original imprintable infant clothing line, to cutting edge with their recently released trendy GREY line for Youth and Men.

The line showcases a light weight fashionable Tee, and overall has a fashion forward feel. Trending towards a youthful hip market has been popular as of late in the blank apparel business.  LAT has done an excellent job of creating garments inline with the demands of todays fashion conscious consumer while keeping prices inline with the wholesale markets demands.

Comparable in fit and feel to both extremely popular industry favorites, the TULTEX 0202 and 6901the Canvas 3001, the LAT 6901 boasts a light weight fit and feel. At only 4.5oz this 100% combed ringspun cotton T shirt is very soft to the touch with a comfortable tailored fit. With over twenty five colors to choose from, the 6901 is a great choice for any line. While this Jersey T could easily stand on its own it does not have to! LAT has counter parts to ensure your brand has a consistent finished look.

The 6901 pairs seamlessly with other garments in the line allowing you to screenprint your own small line with a big feel. From youth to infant, and from junior to Lady’s and back, the entire LAT line incorporates many of the same core colors allowing you to imprint your design on a wide range of garments regardless of your run size. Utilizing LAT, you can outfit almost any group with the same colors and fabric.

Innovation does not stop with fit feel and color consistency throughout the LAT line. In addition L.A.T has created one of the first full lines of sublimation friendly t-shirts in SubliVie. Sublimation is a process in which ink is super-heated. The super-heated ink turns into a gas which adheres to polyester. This process allows for extremely vibrant all over prints. sublimationexSublimation has been traditionally used in the creation of uniforms, think cycling Jerseys similar to those Lance Armstrong wore in competition. The creation of SubliVie is truly innovative because of its fit and feel. While the line incorporates 100% polyester garments necessary for sublimation, the feel unlike most polyester garments is almost cotton to the touch allowing for vibrant all over T-shirt printing as seen on the t-shirt to the left designed and sold by Thredya.

L.A.T sportswear is tirelessly committed to providing customers with innovative products for innovative needs at affordable prices.


This Week’s Product Spotlight: Canvas 3001 vs. American Apparel 2001

As most of you know, the American Apparel 2001 Fine Jersey T-Shirt is one of the most highly-ranked, best-selling blanks out there today. Its tubular design and unmatched array of color options (51 to be exact) make it a top choice for both screen printers and their customers alike. This 100% ring spun combed cotton, unisex tee is also made in the U.S. (as all American Apparel garments are), which has been an increasingly important selling point here in the states. The American Apparel name practically sells itself, globally; its controversial advertisements and patriotic mantra are recognized everywhere today, and t-shirt enthusiasts can’t seem to get enough. However, many T-shirt connoisseurs have recently discovered a 2001 alternative—the Canvas 3001 Greenwich T-shirt.

3001The 4.2 oz Canvas 3001 is a unisex tee available in 35 colors (including 3 new heathered options) and 8 sizes (XS-4XL). Aside from its larger run of size options,  Bella+Canvas prides itself on always using the finest combed and ring-spun cotton fabric to ensure a smooth knit consistency, and it shows in this t-shirt. The 3001 also has contoured side-seems and a double stitch sleeve and bottom hem. Although the 3001 is not advertised as made in the U.S., Canvas does offer a different version (3001U), which is manufactured here.

I can’t really say which T-shirt is best, because it’s more about finding which shirt is best for you and/or for your clients. Both shirts are a fashion-fit, ideal for screen printing, and are tailored for both men and women. The key points to keep in mind when deciding between them are as follows:

  • The 2001 does not have side seems, and the 3001 does.
  • The 3001 is available in sizes XS-4XL, and the 2001 sizes stop at 3XL.
  • The 2001 has a greater color selection, including 2 stripe patterns.
  • The 3001 prices at roughly 20% less than the 2001 for those on a tighter budget.

With that said, happy shopping!
