But at first they won't have enough Tshirts to print, so as you said the only way is to outsource the printing ?

Do you think that some companies accept to make few Tshirts a day at a good price ?

We are located in Bangkok / Thailand and making Tshirts the "classic way" is cheap here but we must order at least 10 Tshirts for 1 design, and this is what our customer didn't want because he will have hundreds of designs.

Any other idea ?

Thank you for your help.
Maybe you can try heat transfer. 2-3 shirts is good enough to use heat transfer because the time is enough. Heat transfer may take you 15 minutes to finish a shirt and maintenance cost is lower.

By the way, I am from Malaysia. The cost at here also cheap for screen print and minimum normally 20 pcs. DTG is not so famous here. How about you there?
