Craftsmanship & detail is where quality is born with custom fishing shirts
Our custom fishing shirt program is crafted to provide our tough sport with an ultra premium custom product with superb graphics. Rather than go for cheap imports like everyone else, our avid outdoor founders wanted something better, that is why each of your custom shirts are made from scratch. This means each shirt is sub dye printed, cut, sewn and packaged right here in the USA, for a far superior quality than the norm.
Our premium custom performance fishing shirts are awesome, but what makes them so good?
Our founder and directors come from years of design experience in the design & custom art industry, this extensive experience is transferred to each and every one of our custom fishing shirts.
This means insights into the best artwork techniques and optimal manufacturing processes with streamlined workflows. In addition to knowing how to capture your vision artistically and translate it into high quality artwork.
UPF 40 & OVER
97.5 OR MORE
(OUR SEAGUARD SHIRTS)
CONSIDERED THE ULTIMATE IN UV PROTECTION
BLOCKS MOST OF THE SUNS UV RADIATION
We all live & bleed for the ocean, born of sea we spend our days out in the Briny™ deep in search of our prey, but being avid spearos and fishermen come with responsibility to our long term health. The American Society of Skin cancer and dermatologists highly recommend UV protective clothing during exposure to UVA & UVB sun rays. Our advanced SeaGuard™ specialized material has UPF 50+ 46 times the UPF rating of a cotton shirt which is perfect for eliminating long exposure to 98% + of UVA & UVB rays.
"They're very tightly woven to prevent the penetration of ultraviolet rays through the fabric," Alison Arthur, MD, a Florida-based dermatologist said when discussing UV clothing. “It's like walking around in the shade all day, without actually needing to be in the shade.”
A white cotton long sleeve shirt has about a UPF of 4, however our U.V SeaGuard performance long sleeve shirts have a UPF of 50+ rating, meaning that only 1/50th, or less than 2%, of UV rays can penetrate through the fabric to reach the skin, which in other words means it blocks out about 98% of the suns radiation.
This means your custom fishing shirts are cut, stitched, printed and packaged all in the USA.
No cheap import blanks, instead our custom fishing shirts from start to finshed are manufactured right in the USA.
We support local business with our garment manufacturing production.
Also having the manufacturing done in the USA allows us to keep our eyeballs on superb quality
Polyester versus Cotton Cooling Features:
All our SeaGuard™ custom fishings shirts are made from highly breathable ocean engineered material with the perfect balance of comfort, cooling and protective properties; a shield for whatever the ocean throws at you.
Our premium polyester knit is designed for hot climates and features ultra comfort due to its moisture wicking lightweight poly-tech fabric. Moisture wicking fabrics are modern technical fabrics which draw moisture away from the body. They are made of high-tech polyester, which, unlike cotton, absorbs very little water. Cotton will absorb 7% of its weight in water, polyester only 0.4%. This creates a shirt that has 46 times the UPF rating of a cotton shirt and many times its cooling factors.
Our custom shirts also feature an antimicrobial and stain resistance coating. This coating minimises the effects of harmful bacteria reaching your skin and the tight polyester knit allows for stain resistance giving your custom fishing shirt a comfortable yet durable longevity.
As all us sportsmen know, we are environmentally aware of our oceans and their inhabitants, after all we are in the Briny™ deep more than anyone. It's our memberships, licenses and best practices that contribute directly to the sustainability of the oceans wildlife. This is why we felt it important to use eco friendly production processes that have no volatile chemicals in the printing and heat processes.
LETS GET YOUR PROJECT STARTED!
How We Make Your Custom Fishing Shirt From Start To Finish!
Your custom performance shirt process is fine tuned for a premium professional grade final product. Here's how it works from start to finish.
Through 15 + years of experience we have developed the original E.D.D.R creative artwork process.
Explore Stage: Our custom fishing shirt and custom fishing jerseys form gives our design department the preliminary info we need in order to understand your unique vision and needs. We may call or email you to explore the details with you in order to get a game plan for your project. We may also offer artistic suggestions at this stage.
Define Stage: After the custom fishing shirt quote is approved we define the art with a sketch or rough composition. This gives you a visual as to what the concept of the artwork is and a general placement of each element on the fishing shirt. For example, boat in the center, sailfish to the right etc.
Design Stage: after the approval of the sketch, we go into the artist creation of the actual artwork. For graphics we define the graphic lines and for illustrative artwork we go through a detailed sketching then digital painting process based off the approved composition from the previous stage.
Refine: Working closely with you, we refine the details of the artwork and provide a realistic looking mockup of how the artwork looks on our custom performance fishing shirt or custom fishing jersey and get your sign-off to print the shirts. Then we work on getting the artwork print ready.
It is important to note: If you do have your own artwork, it needs to be provided in a high enough resolution and quality to allow for a clear detailed sublimation print. Vector artwork is ideal for graphics (Learn about vector artwork here) . If you send your existing artwork through our custom fishing shirt form here , our in-house art department can evaluate it for free! We often have to recreate existing artwork if if the original files provided are not high enough resolution for custom fishing shirt sublimation printing. This may have an additional one time fee depending on the complexity of the artwork you provide, but you will have truely professional artwork forever. We can work with you on this free evaluation .
Please tell us more about your project
Each piece of your custom fishing shirt is expertly laid out in a very specific digital file. The collar, left arm, right arm, back and front of the custom fishing shirt are each printed flat directly onto our premium performance fabric using an advanced dye sublimation process right in the USA.
From printing to sewing and packaging, lets being this USA made process:
The way the sublimation process works is it prints a dye directly onto a special release paper. Once the print is on the paper it can then be transferred to the custom performance fabric by heating the solid to a gas to transfer the particles directly to the fabric, then turn them back into a solid without them ever being a liquid.
The process literally fuzes the print and our premium performance material together, creating a durable feature rich product that will never fade or wash away.
Then, each of the 5 pieces of the performance shirt are then cut out perfectly by our skilled tailors and dexterously sewn into your final premium custom fishing shirt. This entire manufacturing and printing process is done right in the USA
