How do I fold a t-shirt?

There’s actually plenty of ways to fold a t-shirt, but this method is our favourite because you end up with a neat and tidy fold that shows off the design on the front of the shirt, and it fits perfectly into an envelope for posting. Using this method the label is also easily checked, even when the t-shirt is fully folded, so you can keep track of sizes easily.

Step 1

Lay your t-shirt face down on a flat surface. It doesn’t have to be orange. Just flat.

And you’re done!

Bonus tip: In the UK, it’s not only weight you pay for when posting – thicker parcels cost more to send. If you use this method, shirts up to size 2XL will fit in a mailer designed to be sent as a small parcel, saving you money. And if you need to know how much your t-shirts weigh before sending them, check out our blog about that.
