Hello,

I am just getting started with a small clothing line and for the t-shirt end of things I just can't decide, heat press or silk screen. I have been looking around at t-shirts in stores and I can't tell if they are heat pressed or silk screen-it's driving me nuts. Can anyone send/post some pictures of some heat pressed t-shirts. I want a quality store like shirt, not a thrown together t-shirt from my garage-I wouldn't be able to sleep at night selling such a product!

Thanks to everyone,
Jaime

I just added my videos on how to press a shirt on a heat press. In order to see the videos just click my signature. There are 7 small videos and they are in order of me doing a shirt. Hope it helps. The videos are mostly in reference to the type of paper I use. Lou

By starting your own clothing line,You mean design,cut and sew your clothes.
You should have your T-shirts screen printed or plastisol. I've been in the clothing
bussiness for 25 years now, all the suupliers scree print their shirts. Either Water
base or Platisol prints. For a better product ask the screen printer who they print
for and if they have names of designers you know, Try them out. I do ink jet transfers for a hobby and want to learn screen printing to pick up some extra work from my the manufactors.


Good Luck

Most t-shirts you see in stores are screen printed.

You can get good quality shirts from a heat press (using quality materials, plastisol transfers, a professional heat press, etc).
