The t-shirt with a saying or message is a part of American life. Just think about some of things you have done to «get the t-shirt.» Maybe you were: a part of charity fundraiser, on the winning team for a church softball or basketball or volleyball tournament, a blood donor,… Perhaps the awesome vacation in Jamaica, Hawaii, or Disney World. It could have been a special concert or sporting event. Whatever it was, just like a great song, your shirts bring back memories — hopefully pleasant — every time you wear it. Unfortunately, over time, these fabulous pieces of history «shrink» or fade.
These more advanced t-shirt Printing T Shirts processes now make use of, what else, a computer! If you want to start a custom tee business, knowledge in basic computer operation is a must. What you need to do is print the customer’s desired design in a special type of paper with an inkjet or laser printer and using waterproof ink. Then the image is transferred to the shirt. The images are then dried and ironed so they won’t come off no matter how many times you use and wash the t-shirt. The quality of the t-shirt itself is also important.
This one has been around for a while but still gets the point across. Baby on board is self explanatory and every pregnant woman gets one of these at some time in her pregnancy.
You can have short sleeves, no sleeves and the newest is the half sleeve for those who want to go sleeveless but feel more comfortable with just a little sleeve at the top of the maternity t-shirt. Long sleeve maternity t-shirts are also available but not as popular as are the shorter sleeved t-shirts.
Thing is: What is good for one person might not be good for the next. Therefore, you should know that there are a number of things that you need to consider when it comes to picking out the shirt that is best for you. Here are some tips to help you along.
Let’s take a look at screen printing. Screen printing is the method of developing an image on to a screen, most generally a nylon screen nowadays, and then placing ink through the screen on to a T shirt. This is the old school tried and true method that some purists think is the only way to go about making a cool T shirt. Well, it is a great method, but not nearly the only method available. Screen printing can be relatively expensive if you get a 4 color machine with the rotating arms that looks like a partially amputated octopus. You have to also have supplies on hand such as a dryer, ink, screens, and an assortment of different size and color of t shirts. This could set you back around $1500 for up front costs.
Don’t forget that baby clothes can also be used in a t-shirt quilt. How cute would it be to have your grandchild use a quilt made from your child’s baby clothes? Very cute, actually.
