I use a 1 colour screen printing press which I won from WPS!
I use a WPS Flash Curer and lots of their chemicals too.
I made my exposure unit using 2 500W B&Q Armley floodlights.
Hoping to find a good, reliable supplier for plastisol inks and chemicals other than WPS at some point for orders that I need quickly!

Based in a leaky room in a leaky old factory, though its rent free and I cant complain for now as I am just starting up.

Hi All,

I’m not exactly new here but only registered this week. I have only today found the UK part of the forum :( reading this post I thought I would start by asking here.

Ok sorry I will get to the point. I am setting-up a new web based business selling original artwork by the Latvian artist Baltapele as prints and on t-shirts. Being a new venture I don’t want to have to order a minimum of say 5/10 shirts till I am sure the designs are actually going to sell. So I am looking for someone like me starting up and can print one design on a t-shirt at a time in a day or so of ordering. I noticed quite a number here have printing setups and wondered if anybody is interested in getting involved.

I am work on the site at the moment and really want to be up and running soon just need to organise a printer.

Let me know if you are interested or have any thoughts.

Cheers,

TigerRag

Iv been mooching around here for a bit and thought I should say hi too.

Im fairly new to the whole t shirt thing. Used to do alot of bits for mates with the good old transfer paper and iron ha ha !

After alot of interest I decided to move on and go vinyl/heat press route to start.

I have a very limited set up just to see how it goes before I start investing serious cash.

Glad there is a UK bit on this forum. :D

Hi I'm a newbie living in Runcorn, Cheshire.
Just starting with the Tshirt game, me and a couple of like-minded friends have got together to try and get a small p/t business going with dreams of going full time one day?
We have the designs but now need to decide what is the best route to take?
Confused with all the different printing options? Not sure which is best method for sport/casual wear with some quite intricate images, any advise most welcome!
Thanks

Hi, we are based in London and we have just set up a T-shirt webshop www.cubicoola.com. We have bought a DTG printer Anajet and registered community trademark. Our T-shirts are divided into two groups - artistic illustrated T-shirts for collectors and people who like original design and T-shirts for progamers. We would appreciate any comments about our website and any advice is welcome.

Welcome to the forum, sure you'll find lots of useful info here as I have.
Nice designs, how do the more intricate images come out on the t-shirts using the DTG?

Thank you. I have to say they come out pretty good. Actually if you meant the illustrated ones, DTG is perfect tool for them. At the moment we are space limited but because most of the illustrations are mine, so I can optimize the illustrations.

Cubicoola no problem it’s so easy when working on a page to overlook something.

If you have seen my earlier posts you will see I am staring a business selling original artwork by the Latvian artist Baltapele as artwork prints and also on t-shirts and hope to up and running soon. I am looking to feature different artists on the site and just wondered if you are interested in letting me showcase some of your art.
