TShirt Laundry Tee Brand is one of the leading Pop Culture themed T-Shirt brands on the internet. Their stuff can be seen on all sorts of media such as Television, Magazines, and various websites. They tend to focus on the really strong fandoms such as Game of Thrones, Star Wars, Firefly, Breaking Bad, Friday etc. They also have random design like the Sleigher shirt shown above. They have some of the funniest designs out there.
As for Print Quality, the prints are nice and do not wash out after the first wash like some brands do. They even print Red with no muting unlike most of the DTG brands out there. They use the Gildan brand of shirt blanks which are on par with say Hanes and Fruit of The Loom as far as what to expect especially where comfort is a concern. J-America is the brand of blanks for the hoodies. They are both made to last.
As for the sizing, you need to contact them if you want larger than 2XL. But they do offer it. Therefore, I changed the review from 4.5 to 5 stars because they do meet this demand. However, they still do not offer kid sizes.

Society6 Vs NeatoShop DTG Print Quality Comparison. Two of the top brands in the Pop Culture T-shirt market. I ordered the samples in this comparison myself. As a disclaimer I will state that I am an affiliate of both brands. Both pay their affiliate's close to the same rate for the referrals. I have no grudges against either brand and I am quite fond of both for their services, products and said affiliate programs. This is a Print Quality Only comparison but images of the product tags are shown for informational purposes only.
Society6 Vs NeatoShop.
Society6 uses the Direct to Garment printing technique for this tee being reviewed. They do offer sublimated products as well to their members and customers. Their Sublimation prints are better than their DTG prints (both are Print On Demand). And their DTG prints does not surpass all of their DTG competitors. Most of the time you can usually find the same designs elsewhere such as NeatoShop.
NeatoShop does not have Screen Printed nor Sublimated shirts as they specialize in Direct To Garment printing only. Their DTG printed T-shirts are the best in the Print On Demand industry to date that I have personally seen.
Some of the designs that you see on the Limited Edition Shirt-of-the-Day type sites (featured on the TeeFetch homepage) can be found at NeatoShop and Society6 as well as at other Print On Demand services not shown in this comparison.
This is a side by side Society6 Vs Neatoshop DTG print quality comparison of the same design from these two brands.
NeatoShop seems to have better ink thickness and ink coverage. NeatoShop also prints larger. NeatoShop's pre-treatment chemicals are also coating the tee as you can see on the Black of the fabric. Society6, while still a quality print does not quite equal NeatoShop's in ink. As you can see more threads show through without ink in the Society6 close ups.NeatoShop's color range and contrast levels are also are superior. For instance, the Red is consistent everywhere on the design. Society6 on the other hand, the Red in the border and the letters are weaker than that of the blood and on the hearts. Also, on the Society6 version the Purple actually looks bolder than the NeatoShop version but as mentioned the ink coverage isn't quite as good. NeatoShop's sample comes closer to matching the actual design thumbnail shown on their website where as Society6's does not. Both brands have Black tees to work (Society6's fabric is even darker). So what it comes down to are the brand of Printers, the Printing Technique & Skill, and the Inks themselves.
Society6 Vs NeatoShop Conclusion.
Not all of Society6's shirts are this noticeably different from than their design thumbnails. Usually, I rate their printing from 4 stars up to 5 stars as sometimes there are variations between what you see on the screen and what you actually get on the final product. In this case it is a 4 out of 5 stars as a result of being so different.
Neatoshop is always consistent with their DTG printing and quality control and so far I've always rated their printing 5 out of 5 stars. This is no exception.
I rate DTG on its own merits and I do not compare it to Screen Printing or Sublimation Printing which are also based on their own merits. All three printing methods have their pros and cons. This has been a DTG vs DTG Brand Vs Brand print quality review.
