Hi, im new to this site, and seeing that lots of help is provided. Im in the same situation as Grayhead ( User in another post ) exept for child and wife, but anyway, I work full time..I'm talented with website/php..and knowing the basis of photoshop..i know what's a layer but maybe lacking over vector's, and i want to start right now my t-shirt buisness, starting for Band t-shirt ( Praticly all black garments ). I was considering buying a press, and a good ink jet printer. But when i came to this site, my illusions radically changes :) My friend got a tatoo machine, and me and him expect maybe to start a little boutique, where we tatoo's and shirt print.(heat press) ( plus net-sales(other printing method). But we need a start point.

So, I made lots of search about screen printing, silk screening, embroidery..and truly, im confused. I saw screen printing "machine" but i even do not know how it seems to work haha

I saw a tutorial for embroidery, but it was for monochrome black, with a embroidery hoop with glue on it..well i dont want 2 hours to make 1 t-shirt..lol..

So screen printing or silk screening ? That's sound the same for me..is it ?
For beginning, i want to print black t-shirt ( 95% ), and I know thats really sucks to print designs with heat press on black tees. Some websites apologize for OPAQUE material as backup. But man, the base's t-shirt weight around 5.6oz, i dont want to sell t-shirt weighting 2 pounds and low washing quality.


Any suggestions, tutorials videos, bundle kits, for under or near 1000$ ?

Thanks, sure you gonna help me
Tom"!
