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.

TeePublic Tee Brand Review.

Their Quality score has since gone down hill, as the prints wear out fast. So figure a 2.5 to 3 star. 7/31/2019 TeePublic Tee Brand

TeePublic Tee Brand 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 high quality. I 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. But there are some artistic tees that stand out as well. They are a respectable Print on Demand site.

As for Print Quality, The shirts and hoodies that I have still hold up after months of regular wear and washing. So if you miss your chance at a Limited Edition print run, you may find the design here as a Digital Printed tee. They do tend to print the Blue end of the spectrum better than they do the Red end. This is not to say that their prints look bad, just don't expect vibrant Reds or for any Red on the printed product to match the product thumbnails on their website.

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:

As a disclaimer I will state that I am an affiliate of both brands and both pay their affiliate's close to the same rate for the referrals. TeePublic pays slightly more. I have no grudges against either brand and I am quite fond of both for their services, products and said affiliate programs.

TeePublic (Their Quality score has gone down hill, as the prints wear out fast. So figure a 2.5 to 3 star. 8/22/2020) uses the Direct to Garment printing technique.

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

Neatoshop Vs Teepublic Side by Side Print Comparison 2

Both brands have about the same ink thickness and ink coverage area-wise. However, as usual NeatoShop's color range is far superior in this case as well as their DPI coverage as it shows far more facial details thanks to the many printed gradients in the shading. Think of it like comparing the graphics of PlayStation One vs XBOX One. On the TeePublic version, the clouds are more dense and brighter but this is also due to a lack of gradients. This isn't them providing more ink coverage, but rather it is eliminating the details. This makes the sky look like one gigantic smear of paint instead of being covered in gaseous clouds. Like they tripled the highlights and ignored the shadows and mid-tones almost completely. Dean's face starts to blend into the background rather than stand out from it. The stars are also more prominent and artificial looking on the TeePublic version as a result of this practice. On the NeatoShop version, the entire tee's tones are more natural on every design element as they are equalized. NeatoShop's sample comes closer to matching the actual design thumbnail shown on their website where as TeePublic's did not. 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.

Not all of Teepublic'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 3.5 out of 5 stars as a result of being so different. Their Pink Lips Hoodie for example scored a 5 out of 5 but it largely consists of Black and White Inks. (Their Quality score has since gone down hill since this review, as the prints wear out fast. So figure a 2.5 to 3 star. 8/22/2020)

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.

Both brands have about the same ink thickness and ink coverage. However, NeatoShop's color range is far superior in this case. It is like comparing an 8 color box of crayons with a 24 color box of crayons. On the TeePublic version, the moon is a pale yellow. On the NeatoShop version, the moon is bolder and closer to orange in color. The same can be said about the highlights on Serenity. NeatoShop's sample comes closer to matching the actual design thumbnail shown on their website where as TeePublic's did not.
