We have taken on a order for 2000 white t-shirts which we have already screen printed the backs and sleeve. The client (a charity) would like us now to print on the front different company logos, this could be 1 off or 50 off depending on the company. All logos will be printed A4 size. Last year the charity sold 2000 of the t-shirts and the event is in May.

We were going to do dtg printing to the front ourselves, but due to some printer failures we are now unable to do so, therefore we are looking to outsource the printing.

We would want to send the printer all the tees and then forward on the order requests and logos for printing. Every week deliver back to us the printed tees. We currently have 12 orders to start with which comes to 124 shirts, with lots more orders to come.

Can anyone recomend or help with this?

Whats your budget as not sure low volume outsourced DTG will be low cost. Have you considered digitally printed vinyl transfers? Depending on the logo this might be a cost effective solution. Do you have a full schedule of all the logos that will come in so forward planning can occur?

Is this a recurring annual job?
If it were me ( and unless the client specified 100% cotton) I would have screen printed onto 100% polyester, and sublimated the fronts. The blank garments would have cost 60 pence more than cotton, but the a4 sublimation transfer would only cost about 50 pence (at the most) to produce. The saving over dtg would substantial on 2000 pieces. You could keep the printing 'in house', saving time and effort on sending stuff to the printers.
The saving on the first few hundred shirts would pay for a sublimation set-up.
