WHAT!!!! £7.50 for just the print or is that the t-shirt as well?

I print myself, A4 using an Epson D88 and durabrite ink on xpres transfer paper, but like I said earlier that's only for stag/party/one off novelty t-shirts. The transfers show fading/cracking after 10 or so washes and that's why I would not sell them as a retail shirt.

for that kindof money you could ge them done with a dtg including shirt and have cash to spare, 7.50 fore a a4 transfer print, they are extracting the urine.

Kev, have a look on xpres website ( Xpres - Colour Trans® ), that's the transfer papers I use, some are £80 for 100 A4 sheets, I know you have vat, postage, ink and time to add to the cost but £7.50 is far too much, it's cheaper for you to buy a printer and a box of paper. I would think the shirt should be included for that. If you got a Gildan T-shirt for say £1.50 plus the cost of the A4 transfer, £1.20 ish at the most, it's less than £3.00, so £7.50 just for the transfer is too much.

I'd call the police, you just been robbed.

I use a normal Epson D88 A4 printer because it uses durabrite ink (pigment ink) which is the recommended one. If you go to any computer shop and get an epson that uses the durabrite ink then you can use that with xpres papers.

Just print following the guidelines on the packs and make sure the images are good quality. All the xpres papers come with full instructions and I think you can look on their site and download pdf instructions.

How are the prints? Are they sellable?

For one off t-shirts/promo/stag night etc they are but as the transfers don't last much more than 10 washes without looking tired I would not use them for retail.

yes vinyl will out last the t-shirt, will not fade and should not come off if pressed correctly. It can be used for retail, some companies use it, but best for short runs and a few colours that don't overlap are the best designs. IMO flock is better for retail, it's nice to feel and gives a slightly raised, more expensive look.

You can get companies to print your designs on vinyl, try Victory ( victory-imaging.co.uk/new%20eshot/Colourprint%20Service/Colourprint%20Leaflet%20FOR%20EMAIL.pdf[/media] ), this is the online leaflet.

Flock is cut the same as vinyl and applied the same. It is a thicker 'velvet' feel material which is slightly raised and looks more expensive. Just like vinyl it does not fade and IMO is less likely to wrinkle or crack, however you would not really use it for large solid designs as it's heavier.

Contact Xpres, The Magic Touch or Victory Design for samples, they should sent out a colour card/swatch.
