We thought it would be a good idea to take a more in depth look at some of our products, for those who are new to RedBubble and as a refresher for bubblers who’ve been with us for a little longer. A great deal of effort goes into chosing products, examining alternative formats and testing the print quality so we can do justice to the great artwork on RedBubble.
It’s a little known fact that our quest for the best t-shirt quality meant travelling as far as Israel. We wanted to make sure we were getting the best out of the printer so we decided to track down the guy who invented it. As he was so helpful, we thought it was only fair to start our series of product reviews with t-shirts.
The RedBubble T-Shirt
RedBubble T-Shirt designs are printed on 100% cotton American Apparel fabric. American Apparel are are known for their fabric quality and are generous when it comes to the rights of their workers. They’re ‘sweatshop free’ and they’re also committed to implemeting environmentally friendly initiatives and reducing their ecological footprint.
RedBubble tees are produced using direct to garment printing. We use an industrial version of traditional ink jet printing technology (just like the ink jet printer you have at home). It allows a wide range of colours to be laid down very quickly.

From people who’ve been won over:
When it comes to print-on-demand, the issue that most people are worried about is the quality of the product. Yes, it’s nice that you can upload a design and buy it, or support other artists that are using the platform, but if the tees suck then you might as well not bother. Happily, the tees do not suck, I don’t think you’d be able to guess that they came from a POD company, and they really show off the merits of direct-to-garment printing. The t-shirts themselves are from AA stock, which is so ubiquitous in the industry that it’s getting pretty silly me even telling you about them. – hideyourarms t-shirt blog
Thanks for the great shirt, the printing really captured the sharp detail of the design. – PimoSupremo
I love the way the coloring and shadowing came out. It looks awesome on the slate colored shirt. I made a great choice. I am so pleased with the quality. Bravo to the printers for doing an excellent job!!! Thank you!! – red addiction
I bought some of my own designs from redbubble to check the print qualily, i was blown away with the detail of the print and the t-shirts kick ass too. – veneer
One last thing, we’ll be giving everyone FREE SHIPPING when you order THREE or more t-shirts for the next couple of weeks. That’s right, we didn’t type wrong, you didn’t read wrong, order three tees and the shipping is zero. Merry Christmas!
