Something good is brewing...

High quality espresso and super soft custom t-shirts may just be a match made in heaven—watch out, croissants.

Few things matter more in the craft coffee world than quality and creativity. Quality is in the process of creating that perfect cup of coffee — accessing expert farmers, rigorous selection of beans, and extensive testing, and tasting. Creativity happens in setting the ultimate cafe atmosphere — it comes in the form of an exceptional Instagram-ready latte, a beautifully decorated space, and tasteful custom t-shirts neatly stacked next to a few aesthetically-pleasing plants. If you’re a coffee shop owner, now is the perfect time to create custom-branded merchandise for your barista team or loyal customers!

Custom coffee shirt FAQs

How much do custom coffee shop shirts cost?

This depends on a few factors—from the design you choose to the garment you decide to print it on. Contacting one of our product specialists is your best bet for getting a more detailed and accurate quote for your project—they can work to find the best design to fit your needs and budget while meeting any design/garment goals.

What makes a good branded coffee shirt?

We’re glad you asked! A good coffee shirt comes down to agreat design that resonates with your audience and a high quality shirt/print that people will actually want to wear. Good design is key in getting people to wear the shirt. They might love your brand, but if they are not connecting with the design, they are less likely to purchase and wear it. Make sure when you're thinking through the deign process, the merchandise reflects your brands values, goals, color, etc. Sometimes a simple logo works best! The same thing goes for choosing a shirt people will wear. People are going to wear their coffee t-shirts and other apparel if it's soft and cozy. Make it irresistible!

I can't find the product that I'm looking for in your product catalogue—does that mean you can't print on it?

No! We try to keep our catalogue as manageable (and un-underwhelming for you!) as possible, which means that we only add our most popular products to it. If there's a specific garment that you have in mind for your project, it's pretty much a sure thing that we can source it (or at least something very similar!), so just reach out to our team and we'll get you moving in the right direction.

Are sustainable garments available for all customization options?

You betcha. All of our eco-friendly custom t-shirt options (as well as our custom tote bags & other sustainable products) are ready and waiting for you to customize them with our water based inks, custom embroidery, or even a ~wild~ mix of both.

Where can I find coffee t-shirt designs?

Maybe you haven't printed branded apparel before or maybe you want to up your custom swag game making your craft coffee roaster the talk of the town. Either way, you have a few good options! If you have a logo, try it in a one color on some fresh shirt styles or colored shirts using our product builder. If you're wanting to create something totally new and fresh, we'd recommend hiring a freelance designer or creative agency to help. You can check places like Dribbble to hire a designs that matches your roaster's vibe!

Can I print my coffee shop design on sweatshirts, tote bags and hats?

Yes! We'd recommended increasing your offerings and adding additional product lines to your online shop or in your store front. Consider changing it up with the seasons and offer custom printed hoodies during the colder months and hats during the summer months. Tote bags are versatile, serving many functions—but more importantly they are a practical, functional tool that allows people to carry a message they believe in wherever they go. Plus, they lend themselves nicely to a more sustainable lifestyle.
