Sublimation Quote

I have someone wanting something I can't do. I was wondering is someone on here could do it and for how much.

Break Down
40ish Tight Under Armour style shirts.
Red shirt with white logo.
Logo is large and bleeds off of the shoulder. The art work will go at a diagonal from about lower center chest and go off of the left shoulder and has a splatter effect on it like a mist bottle created or spray can.
He wants it to be soft touch so I was think sublimation?

first of all, you are going to need to start with a white shirt and make it red, you cant go lighter on a dark shirt with sublimation.

second, you will need to find a distributor of UA and ship the shirts to a large format dyesub printer

third, where the seams are will be hard to dyesub. Something like this is normally done prior to construction. There are companies that do this and the retial price runs about $80 each.
Do you have any idea on how to mimic what they want without sublimation. And they don't want under armour specifically just that type of shirt.
screen print with pvc free ink for the soft touch should do it.
I don't know where you are going to get a red compression shirt. the only colors I have seen are white and black
You might want to contact a company that does cut-and-sew dye sublimation and see if they can do it for you. SKDave on this forum does this type of work, but not sure if he has the fabric pattern for the style of shirt you are looking for.

The main problem I see is getting a material that you customer likes that is similar to UA and then getting the sizes correct for the people that are wearing them. Get past that and you should not have a problem.
