Sometimes that's easier for the poster But if the question has been answered many times, then it may take longer for an answer to be reposted. That's why we sometimes suggest that you use the search feature on the forums to find the answers you need and if you still can't find the answers, then you can post. It can also give you something to do while waiting for your questions to be answeredSeems easier to post a new thread and have someone answer you.
It depends on what type of printing you want to do (and how much you want to do yourself).Anyway, for someone that is just starting and does not know too too much about the tshirt making business....what supplies would I need to start off with. Is there somewhere I can go that would help me get started.
You can outsource the printing (heat press or screen printing or direct to garment) OR you can buy the materials and equipment to do it yourself.
Heat press is basically using a big heated machine to press a design from transfer paper onto a t-shirt. The design on the transfer paper can be printed on your home printer or even printed on transfer paper by a screen printer (plastisol transfers).
Screen printing is pressing ink through an actual "screen" directly onto a garment. This is the "traditional" way of printing t-shirts. Sometimes called silk screening.
An optical cutter can cut letters shapes, logos and all types of things:what would I need to make my own press designes as well as is there a machine that cuts letters?
