Hi All,

I want to develop my own brand of babywear starting with tshirts. I already have multi colour designs (front-centre printing). A Babysafe printing method is a top priority.

What I want to achieve:
100% cotton shirts (white is fine to begin with)
assorted sizes 0-24m (hard to find 0-6m options)
very low minimums to start off (maybe dtg is best?)
Garment finishing/ own branding (maybe tick tab and own label or screen print neck label)

Options: I have found shirts and can source labels and woven hem/side tabs easily if this is a good route to reduce costs, I also don't mind putting some work in as long as its possible to end up with a well finished garment. Also open to one-stop companies if theres not a great cost difference.

After a bit of searching its looking like £8-£10 for low minimums and that's without garment finishing. I don't know where I'm going wrong, or if this is just the case for low minimums? I think ill use zazzle or something for prototypes anyway although still seem to only have 6m age tshirts.

I have asked a lot in here but even if you can help with one or two things I'd be very grateful. If it helps, I'm Scotland based. Thanks in advance!

You need to find a DTG printer who's inks and pre-treatment are oekotex class 1 approved like the Brother brand.

Give GSUK in Nottingham a call and they will put you in touch with printers who offer a trade DTG service.
thanks very much for that, the more I look into this though the less affordable it seems!

I want to make sure I'm doing my part re making them babysafe. But for a startup business - its looking too costly.

So frustrating when I have the finished product in mind. I can find people to do it, I just cant seem to get it at the right price for lower quantities.
