So, you're looking for a Bella + Canvas t-shirt but need help figuring out where to start? The Bella + Canvas 3001 and 3001CVC are similar but different in some ways. We know a thing or two about great t-shirts, having been in the business for over ten years. Our team is here to help you learn the difference between the two and help you decide which shirt is best for you and your custom apparel projects.
Bella + Canvas: A Brief Brand Overview
First, if you need to get more familiar with Bella + Canvas, we can't wait to tell you how amazing they are. That way, you can see if their practices and products align with what you're looking for in a custom t-shirt.
The California-grown company is all about elevated basics. Their USA-made quality garments are made with a commitment to sustainability. Their products are responsibly sourced, and they've worked hard to minimize their eco-footprint throughout their production process. Who doesn't love an Earth-loving company?
Using efficient dye machines that use 7x less water than competitors, the company saves about 24 million gallons of water annually. They're also virtually zero-waste. Bella + Canvas recycles nearly everything that isn't into a t-shirt. They recycle excess fabric into items such as baby bibs and upholstery stuffing. They're out there doing some cool stuff if you ask us.
Now let’s get down to the “nitty-gritty”: Comparing the two shirts.
The Bella + Canvas 3001 and 3001CVC are similar but different. Both tees are unisex, with a retail fit- short sleeves, a crewneck, side seams, and shoulder taping.

But there are a few notable differences between the Bella + Canvas 3001 and Bella + Canvas 3001CVC. We're here to help you learn more about these shirts and find what's best for you and your needs.
