Nice Tees, are you printing with discharge inks or waterbased? I also noticed you referring to your brand as streetwear... I once saw a video of an interview with the founder of LRG and one of them had said that the worst thing you can do is label your clothing company urban or (street) for that matter because when you do this it tends to lock you in a genre which eventually limits your possibilities... heres the link to said video---> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW9hJ6XGO-w

I am currently using a discharge ink, it isn't something that i wanted to go through considering what i want the company to represent. Unfortunately the quality of the results we had just weren't that great so to just had to say to myself there are other things that can make up for this.

I am hoping though that there will be developments within the water based inks that mean they will provide a better print and also have better longevity.

I know I like many other printers battle with these issues all the time eco friendly vs. cost and quality but something tells me that in a few years these problems will be solved... But overall I can definitely feel what your companies Idea is trying to accomplish.. and Im sure others will too... good luck with your new adventure... :)

Have you heard of any developments a foot. Whether that be in the production of the ink etc.

Thanks man, hopefully it will all be worth it.
