Can somebody tell me what's the difference between digital laser and plastisol?
I was told my design couldn't be done in plastisol because color fade to another color that plastisol has to be a solid color.

Isn't digital laser bascily like ink jet? Just a little more hi tech?

Yes, Solid Colors aka Spot Colors.

But they can be done with blending colors. In some cases with "Spot Color Process" or with "4-color Process".

They work great when printing dark shirts, no need to cut around the graphic, fast and easy to apply, Screen Printed Quality.

Also, keep in mind that designing for t-shirts is different than design paper posters. Usually when designers set out to design graphics for a shirt brand, they know the costs envolved and may use 2-4 colors in a way where they would achieve good results at a reasonable competitive price.

Digital transfers are also good. It depends. :D
