The Big 3

While we print on a lot of different shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts and other apparel at the 2046 print shop, these are the most used and most sold shirts on our shop.

Poly Cotton Blend

Our CVC's retail cut, softness, and breathability makes this our #1 selling tee. Offers durability and comfortability in one tee, it's an elevated comfort on a classic tee.

Masterfully crafted CVC (chief value cotton) has been combed and ringspun multiple times to remove impurities that would otherwise interrupt a flawlessly smooth surface. Recycled Polyester has been blended with cotton to provide superior color retention, moisture evaporation and durability.

60% Combed ringspun cotton / 40% Recycled Polyester

100% Cotton

Meet our ultimate classic tee. Inspired by a casual-cool vibe, its design offers a retail fit. Our vision is to create a tee for everyone and every industry in soft, premium 100% combed ring-spun cotton.

The folks who wear this shirt are equally pleased by the super-soft feel crafted from natural, breathable combed cotton. Ultra-fine combing removes impurities from the cotton fibers, allowing for a smooth surface, quality print
adhesion, and even coloration. Sleek 32 singles thread width also creates a soft feel because the jersey is tightly woven, lighter and thinner, weighing in at only 4.3 oz per fabric yard.


Our smooth silky t-shirt that drapes the best. Part of our premium collection, our tri-blend has the greatest stretch and recovery.

One of the greatest benefits to the finish of a garment like the Next Level Apparel Tri-Blend T-shirt is the blend of polyester, cotton and rayon which naturally creates a heathered, vintage look. These three fabrics are not only requisite for premium softness, they have terrific drape, color
retention and durability. The higher percentage of polyester in this tri-blend makes it stronger, reduces “pilling”, and has increased evaporative properties over pure cotton apparel.

  • Screen Printing

    Artistry meets precision in the traditional printing process of screen printing. Highly skilled screen printers meticulously prepare stencils, mix ink, and then force the ink through a screen to create a print. The result is a tee with crisp lines, a bold look, and vibrant colors that will last!

  • Direct-to-Garment

    Direct-to-garment digital printing utilizes innovative technology to create high quality and environmentally-friendly apparel. Water-based, eco-friendly inks are used in an energy-efficient process, and T-shirts are printed on demand, resulting in less waste!


NLA offers several Eco-friendly products and styles, but the commitment to the environment doesn't stop there. The manufacturing waste initiatives reduce scrap fabric by 2+ million pounds per year, with millions of plastic bottles being recycled since the launch of the Sustainable Collection. Recently, we have engaged a 3rd party consultancy to conduct an ESG Materiality Assessment that will guide ESG strategies in 2022 and beyond.

  • 5.9 Million Pounds of manufacturing waste saved in the last 24 hours.

  • NLA apparel headquarters is a LEED platinum building.
