TeePublic Vs NeatoShop Closeups

Print Comparison: Redbubble Vs NeatoShop Vs TeePublic 2021.

Redbubble Vs NeatoShop Vs TeePublic DTG Print Quality Comparison. I ordered these particular samples in this comparison myself. As a disclaimer, I will state that I am an affiliate of NeatoShop and TeePublic. I used to be affiliated with Redbubble. Redbubble bought BustedTees/Teepublic a few years ago. Their business models utilize regional contracted print shops to fulfill their orders. Their quality varies and is luck of the draw. NeatoShop is all done in-house from Oregon and their quality is consistent.

The images are taken directly from my Samsung NX500 camera. No editing of the tone or contrast or color. Even though Auto Tone with Auto Contrast seems to look truer to life to my eyes. Also, my camera thinks it's 2015 for some reason and I have yet to find the setting to change it. Never used or needed the function. I assure you that these photos were taken mid-Sept 2021.

Redbubble Vs NeatoShop Vs TeePublic 2021.

Redbubble uses the Direct to Garment printing technique only and does not have Screen Printing. While their tees are usually slightly above the industry average for DTG quality they do not surpass all of their DTG competitors. This sample is not great but it is not the worst that I have seen from Redbubble. Most of the time you can usually find the same pop culture designs elsewhere such as NeatoShop, but they do have artsy tees as well that may not be available anywhere else. That is the niche advantage of shopping at Redbubble. Their Pop Culture tees are dwindling much like TeePublic.

NeatoShop does not have Screen Printed 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.

TeePublic uses the Direct to Garment printing technique only and does not have Screen Printing. While their tees are usually slightly above the industry average for DTG quality they do not surpass all of their DTG competitors. This tee looks better than samples from the past. In the past, Items I have received around Christmas time appear to have been made of lower quality to keep up with the commercial demand of the holiday. So low that the designs washed off after a few loads of laundry. Since this tee was ordered closer to Labor Day that should not be an issue. This Tee appears to be of higher quality than anything I have received from them in the past. TeePublic is a mix of niches but the Pop Culture stuff seems to be disappearing. At least the unlicensed stuff.

About The Designs

It used to be that most of the designs that you see on the Limited Edition Shirt-of-the-Day type sites (featured on the TeeFetch homepage) could be found at these three sites eventually. If you are looking for the Pop Culture Niche then NeatoShop is your best bet.

Here are the Thumbnails of the artwork for all three sites.

Redbubble Vs NeatoShop Vs TeePublic 2021 Rundown

All three of the Tee blanks were the basic Classic Black tees from each company. Redbubble uses Gildan, NeatoShop uses NextLevel Apparel, and TeePublic uses Bella Canvas.

Third Place

Rebubble came in third place for this print. It is better than what some POD companies provide but it is not the level it should be in 2021. The colors are correct and true to their thumbnail but appear to be watered down and muted in comparison to both the NeatoShop and the TeePublic printed versions. This is not only due to not adjusting the contrast but also because they do not apply as much ink. Making their print much lower quality than the other two brands. I've had both better and worse prints from Redbubble. Let's call this average. 3 Stars. I won't waste our time with more Redbubble comparison images in this review.

Second Place

For second place, I'd give it to TeePublic. This print is very good. Nice contrast, and vibrant color. Not really anything to complain about at all. It is a lower resolution image and therefore a bit blurrier but the ink is good. It is also a slightly larger print. The enlargement of the lower resolution resulted in blurriness. They did adjust the contrast compared to their thumbnail. It's the best that I have received from them. There is a blotchy spot and missing "pixels" here and there but nothing major. Let's say 4.5 Stars.

First Place

For first place, that leaves NeatoShop. This print is Excellent. Look closely at the highlights on the lips and the overall contrast. They also adjusted the contrast compared to their thumbnail. While the colors are more vivid and bolder, that contrast gives it a visual edge. A crisp higher resolution image results in a clean and clear print. TeePublic's highlights are more subtle due to blurriness whereas NeatoShop is more accented. I also prefer the Green on the weapon more as it is closer to the military Drab Green. There is a missing "pixel" but nothing blotchy and nothing major. This is a universal issue with all printers and brands out there. Unusual for NeatoShop. Regardless, let's give this print a solid 5 stars.

NeatoShop Vs TeePublic Side By Side

TeePublic Vs NeatoShop Closeups

It was a tough choice deciding between NeatoShop and TeePublic this time. It was almost a tie.

Imperfections and Defects Explained.

To explain further, the missing pixel(s) is basically a shirt defect as opposed to a print defect. There go, it's not easy to spot that during production, because the defect almost always occurs AFTER the shirt arrives at the customer's house, or even after the shirt is laundered. Therefore, I don't hold this against any brand.

Basically, what happens is there's a small cotton speck that adheres to the surface of the shirt. So when the shirt is printed, the ink adheres to the surface of the speck, not the shirt. When the shirt is jostled inside the polymailer envelope (or after the shirt is washed), the speck detached from the shirt and you get a blank spot where that speck used to be. As you can see, the speck can be quite small so it's tough to see.

As for blotches, said specks could roll while wet imprinting on the tee. Also, in the worst cases, the printer nozzles clog up and they can spit out a clump randomly onto the shirt as parts move through the process. Temperature fluctuations and other unforeseen things can even contribute to this, not just the lack of proper maintenance. I wouldn't complain about this personally. As many shirts as I get and as rare as this is. It happens. In other words, even the government allows a certain amount of rat hair in food.

If there is a true defect, NeatoShop will replace the tee. Customer satisfaction is their main priority. Redbubble ceases to impress me with its current setup. When they first came out they were the top dog. TeePublic will work with you if certain conditions are being met.

Redbubble Vs NeatoShop Vs TeePublic 2021 Conclusion.

Skip Redbubble, their prints aren't worth the money. Especially, if you can get the design at NeatoShop. Redbubble's sublimated prints should still be okay. And for Pop Culture-based designs they don't last on their site long due to various legal issues such as DMCA notices.

If print quality matters to you here are the decisive points. If bright Greens are more important than bright Reds for your designs and taste go with TeePublic. If you prefer crisp images with brighter and bolder Reds instead of bright and bolder Greens go with NeatoShop. I personally prefer NeatoShop.

I rate DTG (digital Direct To Garment) on its own merits and I do not compare it to Screen Printing which is also based on its own merits. Both printing methods have their pros and cons. This one has been a DTG Brand Vs DTG Brand Vs DTG Brand print quality review.

Redbubble Vs NeatoShop 2021 Rundown

Both of the Tee blanks were the basic Classic Black tees from each company. NeatoShop uses NextLevel Apparel and Redbubble uses Gildan.

Also NeatoShop printed the design better and slightly larger. NeatoShop also wins for ink coverage and thickness (it is even smoother). All this means that ultimately NeatoShop's print should last longer if washed and dried properly. The Reds look better on NeatoShop's version even though Redbubble's Reds have improved greatly over the years. The overall adjustment of colors both Red and White ( two extremes) are better on NeatoShop's as well as the White is much brighter than Redbubble's. Redbubble's print looks like it has pretreatment chemicals around it greying out the Black fabric. Since these comparison photos, I have washed the Redbubble one twice and that Greyish film surrounds the image still boxes in the design. It doesn't look like it is going to wash off. This is the first time I have ever had that issue.

Redbubble Print Fail Above you can clearly see the Greyish frame in the print area which I am hoping is pretreatment. It hasn't washed off. Ignore the two sweat drops in the upper left. I also as you see got the upper left corner wet to try to get the stuff off and the tee is still damp. That should darken the fabric much more than it did. That pretreatment is on thick.

True to life, NeatoShop matches the design thumbnail. The Redbubble's sample as stated you can clearly see it is muted a lot in comparison to their own thumbnail mostly because of the issue with the pretreatment, either that or they printed this design with a nontransparent background. My money is on the pretreatment. Both brands have Black tees to work with here so the differences are due to the brand of Printers, the Printing Technique & Skill, any chemicals used, and the Inks themselves.

Redbubble Vs NeatoShop 2021 Conclusion.

This is below average for a Redbubble print. Their stuff is always muted in comparison to their thumbnails. I usually rate their stuff 3.5 stars (3 being average). I'd rate this a big fat 0 since the color, ink thickness, ink coverage and sizing isn't as good as it is on NeatoShop's version. But they are NO better than Zazzle and Cafepress with this sample.

Neatoshop is always consistent with their DTG printing & quality control, as a result so far I've always rated their printing 5 out of 5 stars. Their prints are never muted compared to their thumbnails. This is no exception. Their Reds printed better still. As stated this tee will outlast the Redbubble version due to higher ink concentration and ink thickness.

Overall, Redbubble prints aren't worth the money if you can get the design at NeatoShop. Their sublimated prints should still be okay. And for Pop Culture-based designs they don't last on their site long due to various legal issues such as DMCA notices.

I rate DTG (digital Direct To Garment) on its own merits and I do not compare it to Screen Printing which is also based on its own merits. Both printing methods have their pros and cons. This has been a DTG vs DTG Brand Vs Brand print quality review.

Mon Chere by Jonathan Grimm Art

Mon Chere Tee Review.

The Mon Chere tee design with Angelica Houston as Morticia snipping her stemmed roses.

The concept is based on her scene in the Addams Family movie from the 90's. It's little creepy and kooky but it fits in nicely around Halloween. The one and only Morticia Addams elegant and goth as always.

As for the artwork it is a nice portrait. Firstly, there is some fine detailed cross-hatching going on with the shading. So you know it is hand drawn. Jonathan has got skill. Secondly, the contrast of the bright Rose Red on the rose and finger nails offers a great "Sin City" style contrast. Thirdly, the way that Morticia is melding with the shadows is like that of Queen's Bohemian Rhapsody Album Cover.

This is a great tee for any Addams Family fan. .

Mon Chere Tee Design by Jonathan Grimm Art.

Is available on T-shirts, Hoodies, Long Sleeves, Sweatshirts and Dog T-shirts. There are many fabric color options. But Purple or Black is really the best option. The review breakdown is as follows:

Pannucis Express T-shirt design by RyanAstle NeatoShop Thumbnail

Panucci’s Express Tee by RyanAstle Design Review.

The Panucci's Express tee design is for the true Futurama fans.

For starters, the concept is that the logo of Planet Express is reworked retrospectively into a logo for Panucci's Pizza featuring Fry and Seymour instead of Old Bessie. Also, it might even be a slight nod to E.T. as well. Since the bike is moving up at an angle. But then again, so does Old Bessie. On another note, there is a design circulating with the same graphic with the text Panucci's Pizza sold The Dude's Threads and some others. Therefore, I'm not scoring for originality or creativity. But rather the concept alone. Not to mention the feels this tee brings.

Planet Express Logo

As for the artwork... Firstly, the style is straight up Futurama's style. So no real creative juices there either. However, the use of the meta use of a one Futurama logo with another episode reference from Jurassic Bark in the "pastorama" is cleverly done. But no more so than the "Panucci's Pizza" version. Secondly, the printed colors are bold and simple and work with any fabric color choice. Which is true to the original Planet Express logo. Lastly, negative line work is good, easily separating the elements of the dog and the bike's rear rack elements. Whoever designed it.

This Panucci's Express T-shirt will make a nice gift for the Futurama fans.

Wear this tee to Comic-Cons and when craving pizza.

Stampede T-shirt Design by ADHO1982 Thumbnail

Stampede Tee by ADHO1982 Design Review.

The Stampede tee design is for the Trigun fans that also enjoy the music of The Beatles.

The concept is that the characters of Trigun pose as the band mates of the Beatles while walking across Abbey Road, just like the album cover.

As for the artwork... Firstly, the style is straight up Trigun. Secondly, the colors are more muddy and fit the theme of an old western well. Of course, one of the characters should had been barefoot for a direct tribute to the Beatles. Thirdly, the shading on the characters is consistent. Personally, I would not had put a gun in Vash's hand sense he prefers peace but it works for this design. Lastly, it is instantly recognizable for either franchise.

This Stampede Ringspun T-shirt will make a nice gift for the Trigun fans.

Wear this tee to Comic-Cons and salons.

Friends Express T-Shirt Design by Mitch Ludwig Thumbnail NeatoShop Print Quality Review

Friends Express Tee by Mitch Ludwig Design Review.

The Friends Express tee design is for the Futurama fans that also enjoy the sitcom Friends.

The concept is that the characters of Futurama pose as the cast of Friends while holding up a giant frame.

As for the artwork... Firstly, the style is straight up Futurama.. Secondly, The use of the Friend's logo via the font for "E*X*P*R*E*S*S" is a great touch with the colored dots. "EXPRESS" as in Planet Express as that is the Delivery Service that the characters work at. Owned by Professor Farnsworth. That really helps cement the concept into people's heads. Thirdly, the colors are bold and vibrant. Lastly, The shading on this shirt is top notch.

This Friends Express Ringspun T-shirt will make a nice gift for the Futurama fans.

Wear this tee to Comic-Cons and to head museums.

Why NeatoShop Is the Best Tshirt Print Quality.

NeatoShop Best tshirt print quality

Why NeatoShop is the best tshirt print quality.

Firstly, NeatoShop takes the time to calibrate each design individually to get a high contrasting color match. Secondly, the ink is laid down thick on a generous layer of pretreater assuring that the design will not be washed away anytime soon. (Wash Inside Out, On Cold, Tumble Dry Warm). Thirdly, the inks that NeatoShop uses is unparalleled in vibrancy.  Finally, all colors especially at the Red end of the spectrum are true to expectations of having the best tshirt print quality. To elaborate, many side by side comparisons have been shown here to demonstrate such as the TeePublic Vs NeatoShop comparison.

Why NeatoShop is the best POD service.

For starters, their drop shipping program and POD Service are top notch. Also, with a quicker than average turnaround time, attention to detail, and outstanding customer service all areas are covered.  Then, if something doesn't match up to their high standards, they will tweak their settings until things are correct.

In conclusion, I have reviewed many brands over the years and NeatoShop outshines them all from the very beginning through the present consistently. They are the absolute best DTG and POD service bar-none providing the very best t-shirt print quality.

Alice Card Tee Design Side By Side Print Comparison NeatoShop Vs Society 6

Society6 Vs Neatoshop

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.

Alice Card Tee Design Side By Side Print Comparison Society6 vs NeatoShop

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.

NeatoShop Logo

NeatoShop Tee Brand Review.

NeatoShop
NeatoShop is one of the newest or most recent Print On Demand T-shirt sites using the Direct To Garment Digital Printing method and they are of the highest quality. It is owned by the popular blog NeatoRama. Most of their designs cover the same Pop Cultures bases as all of the other Shirt A Day and Limited Edition T-shirt Brands out there. They are my favorite for the Print on Demand sites. The shirts and hoodies that I have still look vibrant after a couple of years of regular wear and washing. So if you miss your chance at a Limited Edition print elsewhere, try NeatoShop first. Their prints always look fantastic, even the Red ink which the competition does not even come close to replicating.

Print Area on a 5XL tee from NeatoShop

This is a print to order type of business so the turn around time is usually great. Here is their shipping policy in their own words:
"In most cases, your order will be packed and shipped out our doors within a few days. Sometimes it does take longer when we're jammed, especially during holidays, so please don't wait till the last minute to order! If you want faster delivery, we do offer Priority Mail, Express Mail, UPS Next Day and UPS Second Day Air. Those orders also get priority printing. If you live outside of the United States, your package will be shipped by postal airmail. In most countries, postal service is very quick and reliable - the slow step is usually customs clearance. Because the rate of custom clearance varies from country to country, we cannot give a definite time frame of delivery. Standard international shipping may take 2 to 10 weeks, and if your package is held for customs inspection, it may take a few weeks longer. You can choose expedited shipping methods for international destinations. These usually take about 1 to 2 weeks to be delivered, subject to customs delay. Because customs clearance is outside our control, we are unable to provide time-definite delivery guarantee for both standard and expedited international shipping."
If you qualify you can even open up your own shop and start making money selling your designs.

Neatoshop Vs InksterInc Side by Side Print Comparison

DTG Print Comparison: InksterInc Vs Neatoshop.

Inksterinc Vs NeatoShop DTG Print Quality Comparison. Both are fairly new to 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 NeatoShop. 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.

InksterInc Vs NeatoShop.

InksterInc uses the Direct to Garment printing technique only and does not have Screen Printing. While their tees are at the industry average for DTG quality and do not surpass all of their DTG competitors. They are fairly new to the business and therefore still growing their collection. Most of the time you can usually find the same designs elsewhere such as NeatoShop.

NeatoShop does not have Screen Printed 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.

Most 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 at these sites eventually as well as at other Print On Demand services not shown in this comparison.

This is a side by side InksterInc Vs Neatoshop DTG print quality comparison of the same design from these two brands.

Neatoshop Vs InksterInc Side by Side Print Comparison

NeatoShop wins for ink coverage and ink thickness. InksterInc's ink looks and feels thinner and does not appear to be as concentrated as NeatoShop's (although they do beat places like Zazzle and Cafepress). Once again, NeatoShop reigns supreme for color vividness as InksterInc's print looks muted. Just look at the Reds and that will sum it up with no debate. Think of it like a photo printed on Regular Printing Paper versus the same photo printed on Ultra Premium Glossy Photo Paper. On the InksterInc version, the Gray shroud blends into the tee, which I must admit I like the way it looks... kinda stealthy. But that is not how it is supposed to look. On the NeatoShop version the shroud stands out from the background as it is much brighter. The same can be said about the skull-like features such as the teeth and other Gray facial features that are non-existent on the InksterInc version. Clearly, NeatoShop's sample comes closer to matching the actual design thumbnail shown on their website where as InksterInc's did not. NeatoShop also printed the design a little larger than InksterInc did. Both brands have black tees to work with here so what it comes down to are the brand of Printers, the Printing Technique & Skill and the Inks themselves.

This is the first sample that I've seen from InksterInc. I'd rate it a 3.5 as the Reds are weak.

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 which is also based on its own merits. Both printing methods have their pros and cons. This has been a DTG vs DTG Brand Vs Brand print quality review.
