Best Sleeveless Tops for Screen Printing

Take a look at five different styles of sleeveless shirts for screen printing.

As warmer weather approaches, sleeveless tops will return to the wardrobe rotation sooner than later.

If you found this article, you’re likely in the market for some tanks to be screen-printed on.

You might be thinking, “there are so many sleeveless tops out there. How do I know which is the BEST one?”  

We understand that picking out the right sleeveless top for your project is essential, so we wanted to provide you with some of our favorite tank tops for screen printing.

We’ve been inking up some swanky sleeveless tops for almost 15 years, and we’d wanna say we have a lot of info up our SLEEVES, but we are talking about sleeveless tops, so… yeah.

Anyway! You didn’t come here for corny jokes; you came here to learn (I’m assuming), so let’s get to it, shall we?

What’s the scoop?

When choosing a sleeveless top for screen printing, it's essential to consider the fabric and the shirt's design. Here are a few options that may work well:

1. Cotton Tanks

100% cotton tanks are popular for screen printing because they have a smooth surface that works well with designs. They are also lightweight and breathable, which makes them perfect for warm weather.  

One of our favorite cotton tanks is the Bella + Canvas Unisex Jersey Tank

2. Tri-blend Tanks

Tri-blend tanks are made from cotton, polyester, and rayon. They are soft, comfortable, and have a heathered look that can add texture to a design. Tri-blend tanks also tend to be more durable than 100% cotton tanks.

One of our favorite tri-blend tanks is the Bella + Canvas Triblend Racerback Tank.

3. Performance Tanks

Consider a performance tank if you are looking for a sleeveless, moisture-wicking, and quick-drying top. These tops are made from materials such as polyester and spandex and are designed for athletic activities. They have a smooth surface that is ideal for screenprinting.

One of our favorite performance tanks is the Sport-Tek PosiCharge Competitor Tank.

4. Racerback Tanks

Racerback tanks have a unique design that can make a screen printed design stand out. They have a narrow back that allows for more movement and comfort. They are often made from cotton or a cotton blend and have a smooth surface that works well with designs.

One of our favorite racerback tanks is the Bella + Canvas Triblend Racerback Tank.

5. Flowy Tanks

Flowy tanks have a loose, relaxed fit that can be flattering on many body types. They are often made from a lightweight material such as a rayon/ rayon blend. Flowy tanks can be a great option for designs that require a larger print area.

One of our favorite flowy tanks is the Bella + Canvas Women’s Flowy Scoop Muscle Tank.

The world is your sleeveless oyster, ya know?

Sorry to use a strange metaphor; we truly couldn’t resist. What we mean by this is that you have so many options in the world regarding picking out the best sleeveless tops for your screen printing projects. 

Ultimately, the best sleeveless top for screen printing will depend on the wearer's specific design and preferences. It's a good idea to order samples and test the print quality on different fabrics before making a final decision.
