Hi, this is my first post. I've been painting children's shirts by hand for more than two years now. This is what I love doing but it's very time consuming. I'm looking into having my unique designs printed on shirts. I visited several screen printers and did not like the limitations of 4-6 color process, neither did I like the feel of the screen printed shirts. I have made numerous phone calls and best to my knowledge there is only one ink jet printer who would print on tees for me in my area (Nashville-Hendersonville, Tn). She showed me her sample shirt and I liked it. If I provide the shirts she will charge $5 per shirt to print. Is this reasonable? Like I said earlier I was unable to find another printer like her to compare the price.
Am I doing the right thing going with the DTG? In children's shirts I am looking for no color limitation, bright colors. Someone here mentioned that these shirts fade after 15 washes. Is this right?
Also, I am looking into purchasing 5.5 and 5.8 oz Rabbit Skin shirts from shirsupplier.com . Is it too thin for inkjet printing?
