More Information

Most T-shirts are packaged in regular individual polybags and are boring and predictable, with a poor return on investment.

But with Kingly promotional compressed T-shirts you can really stand out from the crowd. Compressed or compact T-shirts are

  • a cost effective and original way to breathe new life into a marketing campaign
  • a great way to launch a new product.
  • a memorable way to recognise customer loyalty

Offered in a huge range of shapes, our compact promotional T-shirts can fit in the palm of your hand. They can be packaged to look like a CD or DVD case, a pack of post-it notes, or any other convenient shape that will slip easily through a letter box.

Distribution has never been easier or cheaper, and per unit costs are extremely attractive. These are highly effective, value for money promotional items.

Ordering is easy. Take a good quality T-shirt, printed with your logo or an image of your product. Choose the custom shape you want and decide on your insert designs too. Leave the rest to us – we’ll compress the t-shirt into the right shape, make sure the inlays are placed front and back and shrink wrap it with environmentally responsible non-PVC film.  The shirt that used to need bulky bags is now not much bigger than a smart phone – great to give, great to receive!

Quality Assurance

It’s in the details.

Considerable care is taken when producing compressed textiles.

Paying special attention to detail, we consistently yield impressive results. 

Our quality control protocol covers the entire process, from when the garment is printed, compressed and when they are packed.

  • GARMENTS. All T-shirts, towels and other textiles meet or exceed the strictest quality standards.
  • BRANDING / PRINTING. We guarantee exceptionally pleasing results.
  • COMPRESSION. Rigid, flat and compressed to perfection.  The quality of the compression is of the highest standard. The package looks rigid and sturdy. In fact, Kingly offers the best compression quality in the industry and are capable of compressing even beach towels into rock solid shapes without losing pressure quality.
  • CARTON INLAYS. 300 gsm offset printed carton inlays are used ensuring a glossy and professional finish.
  • SHRINK WRAPPING. Quality PE film is used resulting in a glossy finish that adds value to the finished product.
  • PACKAGING. Reinforced corrugated boxes are used ensuring that the goods arrive in pristine condition. Additionally, all boxes are strapped to prevent any tampering of goods whilst in transit.
  • QUALITY CONTROL. Production is monitored through an internal auditing process. 
  • LABORATORY TESTING. Upon request, and for your peace of mind, your order can be subjected to TUV garment testing.

How to use

Simply remove the shrink wrapping, discard the cartons responsibly (they’re recyclable) and place the T-shirt in water for a short while. It will quickly take on its natural shape. Remove from the water and dry.

Alternatively, just put it directly into the washing machine. It’s a simple as that!

Once soaked in water, or put through a washing machine, the compressed garment is unaffected by it’s time as a compact T-shirt. Shirt and branding have a 100 % ‘recovery’ from compression.

Instructions cans specify “Open, place in water, iron” or “Open, place in water, iron inside out”.

KINGLY has been at the forefront of developing printing inks that result in premium quality screen printing. Colours are true and images are clear and long lasting. We have consistently raised the bar of what’s possible, and we now surpass the standards of any other producer.

We aim to ensure total customer satisfaction. We’ll happily send you a sample so you can review the quality.

We offer the following types of screen printing:

  • From 1 to 10 spot colour printing on white garments using mostly water-based inks resulting in a soft hand / feel.
  • Four colour process printing onto white garments
  • Photographic reproduction onto dark garments using a special silk screen separation of up to 10 colours using plastisol inks or discharge printing.
  • Screen printing with glossy finish: after a garment is printed, we apply a special laminate to create a super glossy finish.
  • Discharge printing: creates an ultra-soft print onto dark garments. This is a method of printing where a colour destroying agent is screen printed onto the garment which in essence extracts the dyed fabric colour.

Our PANTONE REFERENCE INDEX ensures that we always obtain the correct Pantone colour when printing.
