need some advice on what method to use for printing designs such as multiple color all over prints (center and sleeves) and photorealistic on color and dark tees.
example (not the style I'm going for, but the quality i'd need)



Ive gotten mixed answers between traditional screen printing, dtg, various transfers, sublimation, and printing fabric and then assembling the tee (although this seems to be too costly starting out).


DTG won't work because you have a cut off area for the machine when it prints. You can print over seems and then to flat fabric and have it look clean. So No
Heat transfers will not have a soft feel with a all over print. It would be like taking a piece of paper and trying to wrap yourself in it. So No
Screen printing. Unless this is cut and sew t shirt it will not come out like that. All over silk screen printing can on be done with one color. And those pictured designed are far to complex for a all over print unless, like I said, it is some sort of cut and sew with printed fabric.

So that leves you with sublimation which is my 100% guess on how those shirts were printed.
It's softer. Ink is dyed into the shirt and can be fully printed all over the shirt with no hassle. And probably the cheapest.
Sublimation can not be done on dark t's though cause convention printed don't use white ink.

Keeping it simplistic, clean, and fresh.

I really can't say whether I like the name or not but when I first decided I wanted to start a brand, the first name I came up with was URBAN and thats what I stuck with for a while. One thing though about the name that made me change it was that I think it can be easily confused with Urban Outfitters. I know a lot of people refer to Urban Outfitters as just Urban so I wouldn't want your brand to get confused with such a large powerhouse in clothing.
Just my thoughts.

@novusimperiumco Shirts look good, pics could be a little bigger, If I were you I'd make the background white instead of black it would give it a cleaner look and you should add a FAQS section and an "about us" section to explain the brand.

@cityofsavages
Are you speaking in terms of the simplicity of the logo?

@mrdaleog no, simple logos are never really a problem, I was referring to with the brand as a whole.

@mrdaleog I think it could be perceived very well, I was just saying with such a common name you're going to need to incorporate "wow" factor with your products or marketing strategy to get people talking.

Your logo looks a lot like a Black Scale t-shirt I have seen. Maybe you are going for that look or maybe you aren't but it's pretty similar. Maybe try and find a way to differentiate? Your shirts are cool though.

Yeah, and SEO may be hard, because streetwear brands and other sites relating to streetwear like to use 'urban' in their tags, so it may be hard to optimize your website.
