Hi

I've only been doing shirts for about 5 months. I have a screen printing setup (4 colors) colors, a dye sub setup, and a vinyl setup. I want to do a tshirt line (basic 2 color for now) and I'm leaning toward screen printing. I know everybody says gildan is great for screen printing and I've mostly used gildan. My question is would gildan be good for a tshirt line or is there another brand I should look at? Knowing my demographic, I plan to sell the tees for either $20 or $25 bucks. Should I maybe use the dyesub? I've sold a few of these and people tend to like the quality. I have searched the forums but my eyes were starting to cross and I couldn't find a solid answer. I do want a quality shirt. Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated, Thanx!

I think Gildan is a nice brand that definitely has its place, but I personally don't think the gildan 2000 t-shirt should be used for clothing lines.

I would suggest a softer, ring spun t-shirt like the American Apparel 2001, Next Level Apparel, Alstyle 1701 or even the Gildan sofstyle ringspun cotton tee. There are more fashion blank t-shirt suggestions here: fashion blanks related topics at T-Shirt Forums

Dye sublimation will only work on polyester t-shirts, so unless you plan on using polyester tees for your t-shirt brand, I think dye sub is probably out
