Screen Printing CrossFit T-Shirts & Other Apparel
CrossFit is a type of workout routine that has been trending in the recent years and largely grown as well. Everywhere I turn I see another CrossFit, especially in New York. Currently we screen print CrossFit t-shirts, tank tops and hoodies for many CrossFit gyms around Brooklyn New York, but also around the world and I love doing so!
Why I love screen printing CrossFit t-shirts?
First of all, I love printing t-shirts for all customers – so don’t get me wrong here. But in regards to CrossFit gear you have to look at who will be wearing the merchandise. I have to say that I have never seen a niche so excited over their gear and so supportive over the gear. We screen print for many gyms all over and I don’t see any gym that sells as much merchandise as I see when we print for CrossFit gyms. That is because the members are very supportive and love to rock the gear. If you look at CrossFit Steed located in Brooklyn for example, we designed some nice raglan t-shirts for them for their 1 year anniversary They listed it on their website and literally overnight they sold it to over 100 members! I see this over an over again with several other CrossFit gyms we screen print for.
CrossFit merchandise and types of garments:
Over the years, printing for a certain niche you tend to learn a lot about them in regards to what they do and do not like. What I have learned about CrossFit members is that they LOVE to order Triblend t-shirts. I am not sure if it is because it absorbs sweat well, or doesn’t shrink to much, but they love it. We’ve printed for CrossFit gyms in Brooklyn New York, Queens New York even printed for gyms in Thailand and Israel and they always choose the Triblend shirts.
They order frequently:
For the CrossFit gym when they sell shirts to their members, they not only advertise but also fundraise in a way. Figure they order a shirt from their screen printing company at $7-$10 per shirt and sell it for $20 to each member. They can make almost $1,000 for 100 members, which is awesome money! So because they know their members love to wear the gear, they always come up with new designs and new ideas. This way the members are always buying the new merchandise.
How can you go about ordering custom CrossFit T-Shirts?
It’s pretty simple actually. If you own a CrossFit gym you want to first come up with a design, or idea based on your gym’s theme. I’ve seen a lot of designs based on barbells, cattle bells and horses, all are related to power and strength. The next step would be to find a screen printing company that prints custom CrossFit t-shirts and apparel. Simply go to Google and type in Screen Printing Companies Near Me, look through the results and I am sure that one of those companies can handle your job. After that, let them mock it up for you on a line-sheet, this way you can post it around in your gym and online. This will allow you to collect preorders and save money when ordering. Place your order, wait a little bit of time to allow the gear to be printed, and Walla you have some CrossFit gear!
T-Shirt Printing In Brooklyn: Construction Companies
If you are a screen printer, work for a screen printing company, or looking to get into the t-shirt printing field I would defiantly advise you to target some construction companies. Gaining a customer who has a company in the construction, plumbing, electric, or even pest control field is in fact gaining a repeating customer – They just keep ordering. Also, when they order, the t-shirts and hoodies they design are so simple and easy to print, it’s a no brainer.
Order large amounts:
Think about it in the eyes of a contractor; They wake up in the morning, brush their teeth and throw on some clothes. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to make sure those clothes, specifically the t-shirt and sweatshirt have some kind of advertisement printed on them? So contractors order t-shirts, hoodies and various other apparel screen printed with their logo and information on them. Now figure this contractor is the owner of the company and he has 15 employees working for him, he would of course want all 15 of these employees wearing the company branded uniforms. This way he just multiplied his exposure by 15 times! So suppose he now has to order at least one t-shirt and hoodie for every day of the week, time the 15 employees he has working for him – that’s over 200 pieces being printed!
The thing I love with contractors and owners of construction companies is how many times they come back and order from you. Why do I say this you may ask? Well the reason is because they fire and hire employees very frequently. Lets just say and employee received 7 hoodies and 7 t-shirts, but quit two weeks into working – you aren’t going to take his uniform back from him. In addition, think about how much dirt is going to be accumulated on the garments. The employees are dealing with construction materials on a daily basis and either dirty, or damage their uniforms pretty frequently. As a result the contractor tends to order uniforms pretty frequently.
Simple and easy designs:
We’ve screen printed t-shirts and other apparel for many contractors over the years and I can tell you that most of them are a pleasure to deal with, easy going and almost always choose a very basic design. Isn’t it every screen printers dream to have an order for 72-144 shirts with a front left chest and a full back using black ink? I’ve printed so many jobs where the shirts are safety green, or safety orange with black ink front and back. Another common color combination is navy colored t-shirts with white ink front and back, again very simple and easy to print, as you can see in the image to the right. Once in a while through, you will get the once customer who has a really nice and intricate design with 3-4 colors that need to be printed. I am not saying that’s a bad thing, god for bid we love every customer the same way, I am just pointing out that not all orders are as easy to print.
The Brooklyn t-shirt printing industry has vastly grown over the year and much of the business being distributed around the screen printing companies is coming from contractors, electricians, plumbers and exterminators.

Screen Printing T-Shirts & Hoodies For Companies Around Brooklyn
Brooklyn is an interesting city, there is so much that goes on here and this is why we love that our screen printing shop is located in Brooklyn. Here at our screen printing shop we meet new people and print jobs for various businesses every day, and we love doing so! One of the best benefits to working in Brooklyn is the diversity of the companies we are able to work with, from contractors, to gyms to sports clubs. We have recently completed two jobs, which we are proud of, for the Aviator Sports Club and Harbor Fitness.
Aviator Sports Club is a complex located on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn New York that kids and adults come to play basketball, football, ice hockey, soccer and many other sports. They also have a youth camp during the summer and plenty of after school activities during the week. Growing up, I always wen to The Aviator, whether it was to play basketball, or just ice skate. Even my high school senior day trip started off at The Aviator, which was lots of fun with all of my classmates. The shirts and hoodies we screen printed for them are pretty basic and not what excited me, a logo in white ink on the left chest and a STAFF in block font screen printed on the back. What excited me was that I was able to work with a client that has been in my life since such a young age.
Harbor Fitness, on the other hand, is a gym with multiple locations all over Brooklyn. They have locations inPark Slope, Marine Park, Bay Ridge and Mill Basin and are the new leaders in the gym industry. They are celebrating their 25 year anniversary this year which calls for some new custom printed hoodies. We recently screen printed for them hoodies and sweatshirts with a cool 25 year anniversary Harbor Fitness logo on front and an American Flag/Barbell combination on back. As you can see in the image to the right, this is a pretty sweet hoodie and to be honest I would wear it myself. What’s cool about screen printing for Harbor Fitness is that they are located in Brooklyn and all of their merchandise reflects that. Just like our catchphrase is “Brooklyn Screen Printing” their’s is “Brooklyn’s Gym” – representing the Brooklyn borough.
