Classic-Format Graphic Tees

While most of the products on offer here at the Lazy River are print-all-over, using every square inch of the fabric, I have a soft spot for the traditional, classic-format graphic t-shirt. All of the tees offered here are manufactured by Printful. Lately, I've been using one of their Unisex options, but shirts from earlier in the catalog come in either men's or women's styles. The spec sheet for the men's tee are here and for the women's tee here.

I would like to note here that, if it was up to me, the name of these shirts would rely on the cut rather than the gender - perhaps "square" and "curvy." Printful, though, uses the men and women designation in each product's url (as does InterestPrint, my other supplier), and has chosen models for the mock-ups to match. Rather than potentially create confusion, I'm using the traditional labels. But under protest and until I can figure out a solution. (*Edit: the short-term solution I am using is to provide shirts in a Unisex cut)

Please see the bottom of this page for important  information about pricing and delivery times for larger sizes. Also, a colour chart with the colour names used by Printful for their women's relaxed fit tees.

Pricing and Shipping Times

One thing I like a lot about Printful is that they have suppliers and manufacturers in multiple countries on multiple continents. That means that shipping times are often significantly reduced, as well as the carbon footprint of the shipping process - both great. It also means that their fulfillment structure is fairly dynamic, which can have implications for pricing and sourcing. The most obvious example of this is seen in most of the XL sizes (usually 2XL to 5XL) - they are more expensive, are usually manufactured in a different country than the smaller sizes, and have much longer delivery times. For example, the base cost of a 4XL Men's Classic Tee in black is $6.75 higher than an XL and smaller. If delivering in Canada, 2XL and smaller ship from Canada in 5-9 days, while 3XL and larger ship from outside Canada in 11-19 days. Being delivered from outside of Canada also means paying duty on the package - one customer has advised me that he paid duty on 3XL shirts recently; I will be trying this out myself very shortly, as Rowan needs some new gear.

Coming soon will be a simple chart showing t-shirt sizes, prices, and their country of origin/shipping times.
