DTG, cheap. I've always used it for samples -- can be quality, especially in black and white. in my experience, since it prints based on the same principles as a computer. If the image is multi-colored, it can look pixelated under scrutiny.

Screenprinting, more expensive generally. BUT I always look to screenprinting for production pieces, the look and feel are classic. But DTG > Screenprinting, in terms of lasting of quality if either diminishes, DTG will stand up much, much better to time.

Cheers.


Yes and No
More then 4 colors use DTG baised on cost if you are doing small numbers. Most companies won't even give you a second look if you are doing 24-48 pieces with a 5 color press cause it isn't cost effective for them.
Screen printing is fairly cheap if you do the dirty work for them. Have everything preped in ESP formate colored seperated and all they have to do is burn the screens. They will love you.
DTG can print vector formated pictures so that will delete the pixelated look. And vector format will also help woth the color format on the inkjet to make it more vibrant as well.
When you say "higher qaulity" what are we talking. In regards to colors or detail.
You can achieve just about anything with DTG o the limits are based on the printer they use. No DTG printer is created the same.
But in respect to silkscreening you can also do the same, it will just require more techinical steps as far as color seperation. I have seen stuff that when I looked at automatically thought it was DTG because it was so detailed but found later it wa silk screen.

Do either of you guys know of any places that do DTG printing at no minimum for fairly cheap? If so, would you be willing to share.

Vermont, but I'm assuming I will have to work with someone out of state to get a decent price. As long as I can find a place in the US that is fairly reasonable and can ship, I would love that.

In my opinion, writing 'friends and family' on it is super corny. I would suggest just making it some sort of a logo tee in an exclusive colorway. Simplicity is key.

There's not much to comment on. I think it looks way to plain in my opinion. I feel like a anniversary tee should celebrate your brand.

Good stuff in here. Not too sure on the Morton salt tee shirt since I've seen that alot but it's a cool graphic. Underdogs is definately a brand to watch..

As for myself, Launched my website/lookbook a couple of days ago, everything designed myself, printed myself, .. Hope it'll all work out as I want to do crazier stuff than just tee's but you have to start somewhere.

I was going for a simplistic look, but if you feel like its TOO simple then thats not good. I was combining my most successful logo/design with my newest one as an anniversary tee and a start to s new side of the brand.

Thanks for the feedback man.

I think, no more tribal patterns. no more pocket tees. dear GOD. Does no one have a goddamn creative bone in their body? YES. the market surely fuckin dictates trends, and YES you would be fucking fool-hardy to completely tune them out. CALL ME A GODDAMN MORON. I would much rather release a collection with zero mass appeal. ZERO. It's simply not refreshing. Half of you probably worship Hall of Fame or Black Scale. Why? THEY TOOK THE TRENDS AND DID IT THEIR OWN WAY. FEARLESSLY. To quote Black Scale, "FUCK SWAG". BE ORIGINAL.
