BLT Shirt Printers has been providing promotional apparel to satisfied customers for nearly 30 years. At BLT, Vincent Van Cuenco and his expert staff print hundreds of garments a day on our sophistocated multi-color presses. For those who prefer embroidery, our state-of-the-art Tajima machines create the latest looks in upscale sportswear.

Located near the intersection of Rt. 395 and Edsall Road in Alexandria VA, BLT's office, showroom, and production shop are easily accessible. We serve businesses, government, non-profit organizations, schools, clubs, sports teams and individuals in Northern Virginia and beyond.

Your designs or ours? The designs we print and embroider are generated – if not by you – by our art department under the direction of our founder, Lois Butcher. Her 30-year background in fine art and graphic design is one of the reasons for this company's popularity.

Got your own design ideas? Please utilize our Online Design Studio where you can upload your own design or choose from our online art selection.

We're small and powerful. BLT Shirt Printers is known as the promotional sportswear company that really listens and delivers with service that exceeds expectations. The repeat business and referral calls come in every day. National Geographic, Fairfax County Government, Dominos Pizza, INOVA Health Systems and the Embassy of Finland are just a few of the many organizations we've served.

What do you need? Golf shirts with your company logo? Family reunion t-shirts? Hats for team members on a work project? Simple or complex? Subtle or outlandish? You can rely on us to create the look you want.

How to get started. We invite you to provide as much detail as you like. Request a quote by email. When you call for information about placing an order, the first cheerful BLT voice you're likely to hear is Kelly Shinafelt's. You can rely on her knowledge and experience to guide you on your way to selecting the garments and deciding on the design process that is best for your purpose. Ask Kelly for your free copy of our sportswear catalog.

How much will it cost? You'll find our prices to be more than competitive for quality custom work. Please don't be tempted to compare us with less experienced, home-based shops who go for the low bid and then don't deliver what they promise. Custom work can vary in specification and detail, that's why we'd like you to call or email us to discuss your needs. Click here to request a quote. We welcome you.
