    Hi,

    i think there are a couple of us on here that print t-shirts. I don't think you will find anyone with advertising membership yet or at least I don't think so, therefore can't offer my services until the forum give a little more info on the advertising packages available, but from your post, are you wanting 2-3 colours as in the actual design is full colour, or did you mean you wanted your design on 2 or 3 different colour t-shirts? If you can give a little more info...Also what type of finish did you require? Is this something to resell on, or are you just looking to get the very lowest price and don't mind how it's printed?

    Hi Dave, no i want the design printed onto 2 or 3 different color
    Finish I have no idea if im total honest, it's something that will be sold on some the quality will have to be to a reasonable standard to avoid negative feedback

    if it's a simple design (single colour print) or plain text based, then your best bet is vinyl as this has the lowest set up cost and is ideal for anything from 1-100+ t-shirts. Screen print in my opinion has the best finish, along with plastosil, but the set up cost is higher and that adds into the overall price, so if your looking at say 500 or more t-shirts then these would be your best bet. But to start with a sample or proceed from there with a few orders here/there I woud suggest vinyl print (dependant on your design), as vinyl doesn't work to well for complex artwork. I have never had 1 neg or neutral wih regards to using vinyl and sold a few thousand t-shirts since I first started on ebay. Whereas, other people using vinyl for t-shirts on ebay don't always apply it properly, and I have read many feedback examples with negatives regarding the vinyl peeling off t-shirt or similar so beware who you use, as there are varying standards of vinyl on the market aswell.

    Dave when will you be able to sell? Yeah at the moment maybe 100 or so t-shirts would be best depending on price, the design is pretty basic as far as i know

    I was awaiting on a public announcement...didn't realise it was already up and available. Has anyone applied yet or are people still waiting on whats to be said over the coming days/weeks as I don't see any pre-advertisers from the last few years, only ex-stockshifters advertisers and those that were originally advertisers from outside the UK. I'll look to re-join when I see a few more familiar advertisers on here. With all due respect the marketplace is nothing like it was originally, so when there looks like there is a bit more activity i may sign up.

    if you use ad-block tom, that will be your problem, it often stops my PMs posting, i have to temporarily disable it.

    i read up on this process as was fairly new to the idea but it doesn't seem far apart from standard screen printing techniques, except rather than using normal screen printing inks, your either printing with an unmixed chemical or chemical mixed with special water based ink (i think), that reacts with the cotton fibres either bringing them back to their natural state for an off white print on dark t-shirt or creating a colour print when mixed with colour on light colour t-shirt. There is obviously far more that goes into this but the actual process /set up appears no different to standard screen printing. The drawbacks are that the white will never be a true bright white, and instead off colour/natural white so this process is often used to create a more vintage look.

    i think the discharge printing is somewhat similar to textile printing, in which the bleaching agent is directly applied on the fabric and doing it digitally is reffed as direct to garment. I am Quite satisfied with the answer solved many of my doubts
