The Pantone colour for Gildan Forest Green is 350 U. Are you using Photoshop? You can use Pantone colours on that...I guess Corel has a similar function.

But if you don't have a $4000 colour true printer, it won't be printing out in true Pantone accurate colours anyway....a little experimentation and variation on 350 U may be required to find your printer's variation.

For reference, here are all the Gildan Pantone colours:

Oh wow, Lou, I wish I knew an answer for this one. I sure would like to pay back the help you have given me.
Maybe, another time.

I don't know if this is possible with heat press, but could you leave out the ink on that part of the design so the color of the shirt shows through.

That way you wouldn't have to match the color, you could just use the garment color (this is done often with screen printing).

Of course, your monitor may make them be off a little bit.
Especially if you're using a TFT/LCD (as opposed to a CRT)
