Shirt and Ink colors for Custom T-Shirts
It can be challenging to pick colors on your device because of monitor variables, lighting, and glare.
Some color combinations can strain your eyes to look at. Contact one of our expert customer representatives if you’re concerned about your ink and shirt color combination.

What shirt colors correspond to
the traditional Cub Scout colors?
Usually looks Black on most phone and monitors. Navy is closest to the color of a New Cub Scout uniform. Like the uniform, after a few washings the color becomes more blue.
Royal is the blue in the Cub Scout logo and the American Flag.
Athletic Gold color that’s a bit deeper than the yellows used in Cub Scouting. In general this gold looks the best.
Daisy or Lemon Yellow
Yellow that matches the Cub Scout logo and many Cub Scout elements. As a shirt color, it can be a bit harsh but many packs are happy with it.
Need a change? Here are two more good colors
for Cub Scout Pack t-shirts!
Iris blue is a lighter Royal Blue. It is very close to the background of the Bobcat rank badge.
Carolina Blue is a great choice if your looking for a light blue thats not a baby blue.
What colors are Cub Scout Packs most disappointed in?
Many Cub Scout Packs order this one thinking it is Royal Blue. Sapphire is more like a deep turquoise blue color with a tropical feel.
Indigo Blue is like a grayish washed out Navy Blue. It is often mistaken for Navy on monitors since Navy appears like black.

What ink colors are recommended for Cub Scout Packs?
Many of our ink colors are matched as close to t-shirt colors as possible. See All Ink colors
Royal Blue Ink
Standard color especially for Cub Scout logo on gold or yellow shirts.
Standard color especially for Cub Scout logo and on royal or navy blue shirts.
Ink colors with Concerns
Hardest ink to print because either it looks motley during the day and glows great, OR looks great during the day but has minimal glow.
Often looks like black ink on all but the lightest shirts. Same goes for Dark Chocolate and Forest Green inks.
Lemon Yellow Ink
This ink sometimes lets shirt color come through. It ends up looking too light on many shirt colors.

Choosing the Correct Garment Size
It’s a Challenge
“What shirt size do you want to order?” The best advice we have is ask them! Guessing sizes is a minefield. Every Cub Scout Pack group is different.
From our experience, it’s best to avoid Youth Small size. Kids grow too quick. Most Cub Scout Packs get a mix like 40% YM, 40% YL, 20% Adult Small for the Cubs.
We have a tool to help – try our Size Distribution Calculator
Size Sample Kit
Not all medium-sized shirts are the same. Garment types (even from the same vendor!) are often cut differently. In general, all garments are cut differently. Please review the garment detail pages for sizing information. Smaller shirts and features like zippers, v-necks and scoop necks can affect the overall imprint size for all your shirts.
Ordering extra shirts is the best thing you can do to solve size issues. After the shirts arrive, some people change the size they need. Having a few backup shirts enables you to keep those people happy. As new people join the group, it’s a great idea to have a shirt to welcome them.
Low Pricing for Cub Scout T-Shirts
Mixing Garments Types
Everyone wants something different? We can help with that! As long as they can all be printed with the same design & ink color(s), you can mix garment types like sweatshirts, ladies shirts, and hoodies with your T-shirts. Price will vary per garment type, but the total quantity determines the price break!
Reorders are priced based on quantity. It’s a good idea to get some extra shirts at the higher price break. If you need a smaller number of shirts after your first order, they will cost significantly more.
How is pricing determined?
Quantity of garments • Type of garments • Number of ink colors • Sides printed
Prices vary. View pricing info in the design idea viewer.

Screen Printed Garments
Screen printing is the Best Choice for larger custom t-shirt orders since larger orders usually cost significantly less when screen printed. A screen printed design will last as long as the garment—even when worn by an active person.
Visit our article on the screen vs digital printing.
See the extensive charts and description of the decoration process.
Digital Printing is good for shirt orders under 10 pcs. It is a computer controlled printing process that applies a special ink to the fabric. While not as durable as screen printing, the digital print has an advantage: it costs the same regardless of the number of ink colors used in a design.
This process is perfect for small quantity orders for dens, special events, and single shirt orders. Digital printing cannot reproduce some specialty inks like Glow or Glitter.
Benefits of Cub Scout Pack T-shirts
Everyone Can Wear a Cub Scout Pack T-shirt
Cub Scout Pack T-Shirts are a great way to build pride in your cubs and their parents. Parents don’t often buy an Official BSA uniform unless they are part of the Cub Scout Pack leadership. Cub Scout Pack T-Shirts are a way for everyone to feel a part of the cub scout pack at events.
Gearing up for Fun
Some activities are not suited to full Official Uniform wear. When the fun is really intense, t-shirts are easy to wash and much less costly to replace. Your Cub’s parents will thank you!
Start the conversation about your Cub Scout Pack! Your cubs will wear their Cub Scout Pack t-shirts to school, church and sports activities where the uniform would not be appropriate.
