I'm in Milwaukee, that's about an hour away, what do you have in mind? Would you happen to have an operable DTG because I am looking for someone to do my printing for me and I need someone ASAP!! I already posted a classified ad but haven't gotten any responses yet.

oh..... I haven't been able to find any and I don't see any DTG shirts out here. I found one person but they were talking about a $45 setup fee for each design I give them..... which isn't bad if I'm getting a huge bulk of something but for single runs, which is one of the main key reasons DTG even exist, it's not worth it and if I get that type of quantity I may as well get it silk screened unless for some reason the DTG is a key element to the design, like using multiple mediums or something. If you know of any PLEASE let me know!!! Besides that it's crazy when you live in the same city, here in Milwaukee people try to hoard everything, It took me a little while to find a few print shops willing to do business with me as a customer because I do my own design work. When they start seeing more of what I'm capable of doing, there would all of a sudden be a bunch of problems with everything and would basically tell me to start going somewhere else in the form of a bunch of excuses and supposed break downs... and I could just be printing one of my catalogs for my shirts, which communicates to them that I can do everything they do, which I do for myself, plus I can draw. So I do more outsourcing because people across the country don't care about what I'm doing over here, if it's that great they're happy to be a part of it making a profit, here they're afraid of being put out of business, it's crazy.
