Gildan 2000 Adult Ultra Cotton T-Shirt FAQ |

It's no surprise that the Gildan 2000 Ultra Cotton T-shirt has been many customers' favorite choice when it comes to blank shirts, so today we're here to answer all your questions on this popular style!

Colors + Fabric 

The Gildan 2000 comes in 60 beautiful shades and is made from 100% preshrunk jersey knit cotton. The stretchiness and softness of the fabric makes it an ideal canvas when it comes to printing because the natural cotton fibers are porous and bond well to ink, giving your designs a vibrant finish.


The Gildan 2000 t-shirt weighs 6 oz.(US) 10 oz.(CA), which makes it our heaviest 100% cotton t-shirt from Gildan. This Gildan shirt is a great option if you prefer a premium feel all-around blank t-shirt!

If you're looking for an even thicker cotton t-shirt, we recommend our heaviest 100% cotton t-shirt, the KF900 Super Weight T-shirt from King Athletics 

Suitable printing methods 

The most suitable printing methods for this thick cotton t-shirt are screen printing, heat transfer printing, and embroidery. However, if you have any further questions in choosing the appropriate blank garment, you can reach us here.


The Gildan 2000 tee features a timeless classic cut with generous room throughout the chest, sleeves, and body area, which makes it the ideal unisex style for both men and women.

Does it shrink? 

Despite being made with 100% preshrunk cotton, one can still expect 3-5% of shrinkage with all cotton garments. However, when in doubt, just follow the care label!

How does it compare to the Gildan 5000?

While the Gildan 2000 Ultra Cotton T-shirt and the Gildan 5000 Heavy Cotton T-shirt share the same fit and fabric, the weights between the two shirts are not the same. The Gildan 5000 T-shirt is lighter, weighing 5.3 oz.(US) 8.8 oz.(CA), whereas the ultra 2000 T-shirt weighs 6 oz.(US) 10 oz.(CA).
