Ok I'm looking into getting printed tags and I been looking heat transfers ... Has anybody used transfer paper for inside tags? And what did the quality look like? And is their s special transfer paper I should use ? Or is their a business that I can order what I need and they will ship me the transfers on paper do I just press them on

I like the bottom one too, but im on the fence on the A you have inside. maybe its just the weight thats throwing me off hah. Love everything else tho


Haha I'll try to even out the weight on the A


Yea definitely something about the A that is off, whether it be the angles in relation to the circle or just the style of the A, may just want to revise

This is straight fire; really simple. Just a question though, is your name a registered trademark or is that there for effect?

@hrtlsclothing

it's currently being registered, thanks for the compliments on the tee.

so i'm thinking about starting my own clothing company and i have some tshirt designs i want to test out; but i also want to have my own tag on the shirts, rather than having a hanes or gildan tag on it. how do smaller streetwear companies like the freedminds get their own tags on their shirts?


They either pay someone to do it or they do it themselves.

How durable is heat transfer ? I want to do a small run of tees of some photos I made and because its more of a gift collection for friends, I want it to be the best quality it can be. (I'm not sure if Heat Transfers are the best option to use by the way, I was just told from a friend)

What do you guys think the pros and cons in newer brands going to tradeshows? I have had some stuff up on the site for a while but now after some big changes in the company, I see myself finding an investor, buying out my current partner due to creative and workload differences and now redeveloping our SS 13 line. I posted some pics of some of the stuff we were originally going to produce... We are still going forward with production but just in a more focused direction. I know it's too late for Spring but what are your thoughts on tradeshows for trying to build the brand's wholesaling, and reach? Let me know what you think of the designs too - we aren't carrying forward with all of them but some of the concepts will be seen in the newly developed line

heat transfer is pretty durable and may serve your purpose....Avery makes a dark color transfer paper for inkjet printers...once that shit is ironed on...it kinda melts/fuses on the shirt and is impossible to get off.

Yo Zach, I had to buyout my original partner aswell about 6 months back. I must say, its the best decision I've ever made. It gives you the flexibility to make your own opportunities and create the vision you want. In terms of tradeshows, I've talked to many other brand owners who go to them regularily. I would think that they would be a great way to network within the industry and have buyers from across the world see your stuff. I'd imagine going to a tradeshow would not hurt business. Finally, I agree with your decision to redo some of your stuff. Excited to see what you come up with. Good luck.

@karakter1 Thanks very much, I'm definitely going to go down that route. And I know, but the way its applied is different right ? Through heat pressing ?
Oct 14, 2012 @ 10:22
hey guys, thinking about starting my own line, just a few qs. Starting out, thinking about just making graphic tees/hoodies. DId you guys make them all at home or did you get your designs printed at a store?? Also, how much did it run you to get a bit of inventory/start up?

No, plastisol is one of the main types of ink that is used in screen printing. It is applied the same way as any other ink used in screen printing.

Its all a matter of personal preference and startup costs will vary greatly. I suggest you do some research.

most commonly used inks in screenprinting is Plastisol and Water based.

both are applied the same way, and both need to be Cured (or heated) in order for it to fully fuse with the garment.

Water based ink need to be dried so that the water evaporates, leaving the ink fused on the shirt....

Plastisol, needs to be run through a dryer, or hit with a flash dryer, set at a particular temp in order to fuse the ink with the garment.

I like to use plastisol, its very vibrant, stands out, and last long on tees. Some like Water based because it can be applied very thin and looks like its actually part of the garment pigment or threads.
Oct 14, 2012 @ 18:05




the top one is water based...you can see how it kinda blends with the tee....
the bottom is plastisol....its very vibrant and sits on the tee.

both are very common and depends on your design, or particular look you have in mind for the piece.
Oct 14, 2012 @ 18:37
@karakter1 Thanks man, that was pretty damn in depth ! I'm gunna switch to Plastisol, it will compliment most of my design work ! Which type do you tend to use ?
Oct 14, 2012 @ 20:55
@sons10

I love all 3 of those shirts. Definitely going to pick a couple up when they release. Keep up the good work
