3 designs at 250 sheet each (750 sheet total) is not bad. but 250 total sheet for 800.00 sounds too much although it depends on how many colors for the designs. if it's photo type image, 800.00 is not bad. but if it is simple spot colors (3-4) you can get better pricing with screen printing. setup for each design: 45.00 ( 3 colors)- 60.00 ( 4 colors). imprint cost of each will be about 0.70 (light shirts)-1.00 (dark shirts) range. but you have to order all the shirts when you screen print them. with hit transfer, you can only buy what you need.

then 4 colors on black (underbase or discharge) and 3 colors on white. 3 different designs for 800.00 for 750 transfer sheet is not bad. what's are you looking for? trying to get cheaper way of doing it? for quality wise, direct screen printing will be better. but it will still cost about the same.

i'm a contract screen printer. always printed directly on garment. never printed on transfer paper. transfer papers cost extra money. why using papers? why not directly on shirts? for 250, it will still be much cheaper if you can find a contract printer locally. but like i said, you stuck with the shirts once printed. can't change colors or sizes. sorry i can't help you getting 3 designs printed on transfer paper.
