Any one know of companies that do bulk heat press jobs at discounted rates -- like a company that will do a run of 50 shirts with the same design? I am looking for a company that just offers the heat press service and offers discounted rates for bulk orders. All of the heat press services I've seen want their customers to buy the tees from them and do not offer our brand of tees and their mark up for the tees is insanely high. We are strict about what tees we use so we want to use our own tees and just ship them to the pressing company and send them the high res art.

If you are running 50 shirts with the same design, can I ask why you aren't screen printing the designs?

I think heat press is usually better for short runs, but screen printing seems much better suited for larger runs like you described.

Mainly because of the difficulty of screen printing graphics with colors that touch and graphics that use a lot of different colors.

I haven't seen any problems with using screen printing in that regard.

and graphics that use a lot of different colors.
Unless you're talking about JPG photograph type images (where you want the design to look exactly like the photo on your computer monitor), I think screenprinting can handle different colors and shades well if done correctly.

Sorry I don't have a better answer for your original question regading finding a heat press contractor :) I'm sure they are out there. What search terms have you been using in google?

I think for the images we want to use screen printing is going to be difficult to make them look right. They have too many colors and shading, etc. I tried googling heat press and custom t-shirts. I am mostly finding screen printers and heat press services like zazzle and spreadshirt.

Hello,

We do bulk heat press jobs
you supply the t-shirts and the image and we'll press it.
What is a fair price to you for this service?

I have a heat press and was recently contacted by a customer to just do the pressing (they supply shirts and transfers). What can I charge for this? I would love to get that going. The cost to turn that thing on for the occasional small order or whatever could easily be offset with bulk orders, I would think.
