When looking for custom t-shirts to get yourself or add to your store, Bella Canvas shirts are a wonderful option. They have a modern fit and are known for their breathable and durable fabrics.

In this article, we’ll compare Bella Canvas 3413 vs. 3001 shirt models you can create with print-on-demand.

The Bella Canvas 3413 t-shirt

The Bella Canvas 3413 is a unisex tri-blend t-shirt known for its soft, lightweight, and comfortable material. This tee is made from a tri-blend fabric that offers a luxurious feel and a casual look. The fabric composition may also give your custom design a vintage look! This versatile t-shirt is perfect for everyday wear and customization.

The Bella Canvas 3001 t-shirt

The Bella Canvas 3001 is one of Printful’s most popular t-shirts. It’s a unisex jersey short-sleeve tee designed for comfort and printability. Made from incredibly soft combed and ring-spun cotton, this t-shirt is one of the best quality t-shirts for printing. It’s a wardrobe staple with a flattering, comfortable fit and a touch of stretch for everyday wear.

Comparing Bella Canvas 3413 and 3001

Now, we’ll dive into the nitty-gritty of the t-shirt comparison. What exactly sets these tees apart, and what do they have in common? Let’s find out!

Style

Both t-shirts have a classic fit, also known as a regular fit. A classic fit means the garment’s silhouette neither clings to the body nor hangs too loosely. It offers a comfortable range of motion and a flattering fit for most body types. These shirts provide a lightweight base layer for jackets or sweaters without feeling bulky.

Both of these tees are side-seamed. It means the seams run down both sides, from the armpit area to the hem. Unlike cheaper tees, the front, back, and sleeves are cut individually and stitched together for a more tailored fit. This has several advantages:

  • Better fit—contours the body for a more flattering look

  • Enhanced comfort—with the fabric following the body’s curves, there’s less bunching or pulling for a more comfortable fit

  • Crisper graphics—the fabric composition provides a flat surface for designs, allowing for sharper prints

Fabric composition and weight

For the Bella Canvas 3413 t-shirts, the fabric weighs 4.2 oz./yd.² (142 g/m²), and the composition depends on the color: 

  • Solid colors are 100% Airlume combed and ring-spun cotton

  • Ash is 99% combed and ring-spun cotton, 1% polyester

  • Heather colors are 52% combed and ring-spun cotton, 48% polyester

  • Athletic and Black Heather are 90% combed and ring-spun cotton, 10% polyester

  • Heather Prism colors are 99% combed and ring-spun cotton, 1% polyester

The ​​Bella Canvas 3001 t-shirt fabric is a tri-blend: 50% polyester, 25% combed ring-spun cotton, and 25% rayon, weighing 3.4 oz./yd.² (115.3 g/m²).

Plus, the fabric for both tees is pre-shrunk for extra durability. Thanks to this, both shirts are exceptionally well-suited for t-shirt printing—the design won’t warp or crack after washing.

So, which t-shirt should you choose?

The difference is marginal since both shirts are so similar in many ways. Here are the differences:

  • The Bella Canvas 3413 is slightly more lightweight

  • The 3001 model has considerably more colors and a bigger size range, including sizes 4XL and 5XL

  • Bella Canvas 3413 t-shirts are made from cotton and polyester, with the proportions varying based on the color

  • The Bella Canvas 3001 t-shirt fabric is a tri-blend: 50% polyester, 25% combed ring-spun cotton, 25% rayon

If you prioritize a lightweight fabric that feels soft and comfortable for everyday wear, the 3413 may be the better choice for you. If a wider selection of colors and sizes is crucial, especially if you’re catering to a diverse group or seeking inclusivity in size options, go with the 3001 model.

Both tees are durable, breathable, and exceptionally well-made.

If you’re having trouble deciding, why not try both Bella Canvas options and see which one wins you over?
