I'm starting my own Clothing line. Right now i do heat press,but can only print on white shirts there is alot of interest in my shirts ,but they want them on color shirts I was looking for a good company to order Plastisol heat transfers.

I got about about 15 diffetent designs most of all the designs are one color and words. I will need each design in different colors . I will be looking at ordering about 200 transfers right now.

Thanks Elite Images

I think they might want to divide the 200 by the 15. But that does not make sense if they want more than one color per design. Hhhmmmmmm?:rolleyes:

One thing to note Sean, that each company may offer you the service your looking for but they may have different charges and the way you can do things. Example some companies will charge a screen charge per color, some do not. Some companies have larger size than 12 x 12, some do not. Some have restrictions on ganging. Some will offer only 4 color printing some will offer more. So be sure to ask for prices on those. Quite a few give great samples to practice with and have catalogs and folders that are of great help.
Here are some on my recommendations
First-Edition
Spot98.net
Dowling Graphics
transfer Express
I use each for specific reasons.
For Stock Transfer I would use Impulse Wear.

Thank you for your help,
just started trying to do this full time, So would it be better to order more right away
depends.
To play it safe and learn as you go, i think do some now and some later.

when you have a lot of designs, an affordable run to start up is grouping your designs into collections.

example: 4 designs using the same colors and ink type on a 12x18 transfer sheet. This will be a cost effective way. You can also do color changes at lower cost than doing it as seperate runs/jobs.

You can then move to make your other designs/collection....etc.

Thats good advice Lucy for someone learning the process.
