T-Shirts and Caps
What about Screen-Printing?
For one-off and small runs (up to 50 items), dye-sub is much better rather than screen-printing which requires specialized and expensive equipment that always needs to be maintained and cleaned.
How does it work?
You’ll need your artwork designs which you can make yourself, use our clipart, get from your friends and family, or download from various sites online, a sublimation printer, a heat press, and some T-Shirts and/or Caps.
Is it expensive?
Sublimation printers, ink and media have become much more affordable in recent years. Sublimation printing machines print out designs onto a special paper. Then the design is printed on a fabric by using a heat press. This equipment is readily available from online stores who will deliver to your door.
