Sorry, I was referring to the quality of the shirt. It's something close to a delta brand. I usually use Gildan ultra cotton which feels like a slightly better shirt and Hanes nano which is a lot nicer. So, decent is not bad. It's just not the best. But the print looked nice, and you can print anywhere on the shirt which is really nice.

No worries mate! I understand. We like what we like. I prefer Hanes Beefy T's and so do my Clients. They really like how heavy, the quality, the rich whites. I love that shirt. Now with that said. if i could up sell them on a brand called Pro Club Inc. 7.1 or 7.5 oz shirt. Wholesale it cost 3.30 each vs 2.39 for a Hanes. It is a truly wonderful shirt. Next would be(well i use them for samples only) Hanes Nano. If i have some Gildan's Ultra's laying around I will use them. I really don't like the weave. It is not as tight as Hanes is. But, hey! everyone loves their own.

Anyone know what happened to Chuck? Chuck, are you on here?

dtgready's website (http://www.DTGReady.com/) has been down.
I sent him a text and e-mail ([email protected] & [email protected]) about a week ago, no response.

Just wondering what the status was on his venture.

I am here! I have been on the road and then took sweveral days off.
We are moving forward slowly with the next round of Tee Shirts.
We have a lot of them in the field and are collecting customer feed back. I have been showing and printing the shirts at shows and have been very pleased with the response.
Almost all the feed back has been positive.
I have had two customers who wanted a heavier weight shirt. One who wanted a lighter weight shirt. Several who like the pre treat but want the shirt in different colors, and one who thought the shirt was a little to fuzzy.
Other than that everyone I have heard from to date likes them a lot.
The process of collecting customer feed back is taking a lot longer than I expected. I will let everyone know as soon as we place our stocking package order.

Thanks

Chuck

OK. Just glad you're OK. Was a little worried about you.

How come the website's been down. You should just throw a survey monkey link on there and/or just send a survey monkey out to everyone who bought some.

Chuck, I hope you are well and enjoying long weekend.
You have one great concept. And I see you struggle between price and quality. I had two shirts from you and tested.
Pro:
Do not need to worry about PT is done right or not.
Price was reasonable area.
Printed well.
Wash test was fair.
Etc.
Concerns.
Because of all over pretreated shirts were very heavy to wear and first touch of end user feeling can be different than they used wear.
Color was not clear or not dark enough.(I only know black)
Wish it is little better quality shirts. I know answer is $$$.
Etc.
When you took care of concerns, we will see new millionaire!
Best luck to you and keep me in loop please.
Cheers! Beers are on me always.

These shirts are available and in stock according to Chuck!
We got some recent samples and they are amazing! They seem to be darker and a better quality than the first batch. Is this true Chuck?

Correct! The shirts are a much tighter weave and they are darker. The tighter weave has given us a much smoother surface to print on. This new weave allows for a much smoother white print that in turn gives a much more vibrant color print.

Do you have an estimate when you will have 2xl, 3xl, 4xl, 5xl?

In my experience Large, X-Large, 2X-Large are the most popular sizes. That could have just been my market.

The next round will include XXL. I have not had enough requests for XXX to justify the quantity I need to run. We are looking at about 8 weeks for the next round. For now we have Small to XL.

I own several Anajet printers and did a lot of the testing on the shirts in house. Anajet gave me full access to all of their printers at the factory and provided staff to help test the shirts at their facility.
I wish I could provide shirts for the Brother printers!

If you need help testing I don't think you will have trouble getting those of us with Brother printers to help out in that department

It’s a fairly long process. We started out with cloth swatches and a chemistry we thought would work. Test print, wash, re wash…., adjust the chemistry, make new sample swatches and do it all again, until you get one that prints bright white, dries fast enough to take the color print, and washes well. Then you run a small amount of shirts, do all the printing and wash tests again, then move into a pre production run of around 1000 shirts, do all the testing again, make any needed adjustments, then a full production run. It took over a year and a half. Add to this full access at Anajet or any other printer manufacturer that you need to prove the shirts on. If anyone has that kind of time or connections I would love to hear from them!

Thanks


Chuck
