Please Help!

Hi, We have recently started our tshirt business but we are still looking for printers and the proper kind of printing to do what we want. For most of our designs, we have a repeated patterns that cover the whole shirt, seam to seam. we are from the new york city area and i only know of one company, Prographix NYC that can do it around here but they are extremely expensive for such a new company. I was wondering if DTG might be the way to go, i do know silk screen cannot do what i'd like. any help would be appreciated. To sum up my questions, they are:

1. Is DTG the way to go and if not, what is

2. Does anyone know any Printer that could do what we want, preferably in the tri-state area but not limited to it.

Again thanks a lot. we could really use the help on this info.

I think it can be done with a roller screen printer. But not many screen printers have that capability (printing all over printing after the garment is sewn together).

It can be done a bit easier *before* the garment is sewn together. Then you'd need someone to sew the fabric into a t-shirt after it's printed.

InYourFaceApparel.com does one type of this type of printing, but I'm not sure if it's "screen printing". They call it "water sublimation".

: "duplicate" threads merged together :) :

Yep, I think there are companies that will press the plastisol transfers on the shirts for you. Since we don't really allow self promotion on this forum, the best way to find out of other members could do it would be to place a SERVICE REQUEST in the classifieds area here once you reach 15 posts.

In the meantime, you could keep checking around and googling for companies to see if any screen printers can do what you're looking for.

You might also want to check the boards at http://boards.screenprinters.net to see if any printers there have the equipment to do what you're looking for.
ok so i should search/ask for people who can use "plastisol transfers". btw thanks a lot for your help guys
