Which transfer company are you planning on using? The design on the t-shirt is still gang-able. But of course you would need more transfers done than if you just ganged the bear image.

I guestimate that text on the shirt to be about 4 inches high. That's 33 linear feet of vinyl you'll need- costing $70?. As Ed said, weeding takes time. More time than you would even think it did. Probably 8 hours. Aligning and double pressing 100 shirts will add 2 to 3 extra hours than if you were doing just 1 pressing.

So the question is, does $70 plus 11 hours of labor cost less than the cost of doing everything with plastisol transfers?


You could also look at doing 2 separate orders of the plastisol transfers if the math comes out cheaper. A ganged 3 color bear and a separate ganged 1 color text transfer.

Well this is the first time I’ve done this.......I looked at Ace Transfers a while ago but have seen mixed reviews on here since joining. Everything on here seems to say the Versa Trans is pretty good so I’ve been looking into them.

I’m open to suggestions though. I just want something reliable with decent turn around time.

I generally use TransferExpress. I recently got some samples from PWCustom, and Howard. Those have fared well in my wash tests.

I believe all of these companies list prices on their website. The pricing can be a little challenging to understand sometimes, especially if you've never done this before. Don't hesitate to call them, I'm sure they will be willing to walk you through it.

Just curious, will they all say Track and Field, or will you be looking at a variety of sport names on the shirts like Basketball, Volleyball, etc.?

I'm looking at a similar situation as well. I have a 2-color school logo that will have a variable 1-color school sport placed below the logo, but not touching. We are taking orders right now so I am waiting on the quantity of each sport needed.

If the numbers are high enough, I was leaning towards having the logo screen printed on the shirts and adding the custom sport in vinyl after.

You have probably done with this job already but i ll just answer in case someone else has the same question. I do this all the time and there is no problem. First you press the plastisol transfer and put it aside without removing the paper. After you re done with all the plastisol transfers then you press the vinyl and then you remove the vinyl and plastisol paper according to the instructions(hot or cold peel). If you want to do both prints with one press use 190 Celsius for 10 seconds but you have to use a thermometer for the vinyl so you won't peel it of too fast cause the print will come off. The timing can also be found with some testing if you don't have a thermometer. Needless to say you cant print on top of each other.

I suppose you need numbers and names on the back this why you chose vinyl. If its the same for all the shirts go plastisol all the way.
