Key Features of High-Quality Sun Shirts

When it comes to high-quality custom logo sun shirts, there are several key features to consider. These features contribute to the effectiveness and comfort of the shirts, making them a popular choice for outdoor retailers.

One of the most important features of high-quality sun shirts is their UPF rating. UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and measures how well a fabric can block out UV rays. The higher the UPF rating, the better the sun protection. Look for sun shirts with a UPF rating of 50+ for maximum protection. The fabric used in these shirts is typically our polyester or bamboo, Each of which have their own advantages and applications. And most importantly, quality and comfort. You want to make sure whatever shirt you choose is one that your customers will LOVE - something we guarantee will be the case with Rayward.

Understanding SPF and UPF Ratings: What Makes a Sun Shirt Effective

Sun shirts' effectiveness lies in their UPF ratings, indicating the level of ultraviolet protection they offer. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends clothing with UPF 30 or higher for adequate sun protection. However, the vast majority of shirts provide little to no protection, often with a UPF rating of 5 or less. If a shirt does not have the UPF listed, it's likely not designed for UV exposure (which penetrates fabrics).

UPF measures a fabric's ability to block UV radiation; for instance, UPF 50 blocks 98% of UV rays. Our custom logo UPF shirts are designed with high UPF ratings to shield outdoor enthusiasts from harmful sun exposure. By choosing garments with superior UPF, which is the same rating scale as sunscreens SPF, customers gain added confidence in their sun protection. Understanding these ratings ensures that your branded apparel not only promotes your business but also prioritizes the well-being of your customers and their skin.

Material and Design Considerations for Maximum UV Protection

To ensure maximum protection against harmful UV rays, selecting the right materials and designs for custom logo sun shirts is crucial. Opt for fabrics with high UPF ratings, like polyester blends or bamboo blends, for effective sun protection. Consider long sleeve styles with added features such as hoods or extended collars for enhanced coverage. Lightweight and breathable options are ideal for outdoor activities to prevent overheating while providing UV protection. Regardless of what you are looking for, we are here to help.
