For those who have been printing shirts, where do you guys produce your shirts? Locally or Online? My last manufacturers digital printing machine broke and im trying to find a new one. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks. 

(Not looking for screen printing services, looking for digital) 
Locally is the way to go, but why would you want to go digital? Screen printing is the way to, i find digital printed to be kinda cheap, and as much as people argue if a buy clothes and i find out their digitally printed i am highly disapointed, they prints usually get kinda ugly after a wash too. 

But anyways id go locally and never online, that way you have more control and you could see it first hand, shouldnt be that hard to find one locally usually screen printers have digital printers as well.

Appreciate the help! Wanted to use digital because i have a specific style/design that works well with digital and not so well with screen printing. 

Any chance you got a source of a good local print shop around Bay Area?

No problem, i understand. Id recommend look googling "digital printers in ________" and put your city/cities around you. Or just do the same but instead of digital printers put screen printers, and you can contact them and ask if they have digital printers. 

I am 100% sure if you also google/find small businesses that do banners and signs, theyll have digital printers.

WHAT THE FUCK ARE SOME OF Y'ALL DOING TRYING TO START A BUSINESS IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND HOW GOOGLE WORKS?!?

Seriously, take some fucking initiative and learn about what you're getting yourself into, so you can make EDUCATED decisions instead of finding a forum about SHOWING and getting FEEDBACK on something you have already spent time, money, and energy researching/producing and asking a stupid question you could easily find the answer to with a simple search.

The amount of "hey guiz need a 5 panel manufacturer PM me" post's I have seen in this thread is fucking ridiculous, considering typing that exact sentence into google delivers 16 000 000 results.
SIXTEEN FUCKING MILLION.

Some people just dont have common sense, or they seek out to forums to find the answers and thats why we are here, to help out people. Youd be surprised the amount of knowledge you get from people on here and its really cool when everyone helps out each other.

Also sometimes some of the manufacturers people direct you too arent easy to find on google, and when someone directs you to one you know its because theyve had experienced with them. Their might be something you know and something you dont know and its all about giving back and receiving back new and old information.

I agree with what you're saying 100%, and I probably could have phrased that post better it just annoys me when people's submitted work gets left in previous pages because someone is asking silly shit. 

I probably gave a bad example with the 5 panels, If people ask about supplier "X's" quality or pricing etc then I'm all about the sharing of information, it's just frustrating when it's obvious people have done no research and expect the answers from someone who has spent their time and money to get them.

The point I was trying to make is how do you expect to produce a quality and unique product and build a sustainable business if you're just going off of someone elses opinion or advice, especially when (no offence, myself included) we are all amateurs here...

hi all,
can you guys give me your opinions on this first sample shorts? i want to switch things up a bit with this two color shorts made of 50 black cotton 50 white mesh for my upcoming two-tone collection. honest feedbacks are appreciated.

Aug 06, 2013 @ 13:37
Trespasserapparel.comyou guys tried too hard on everything, overly done and it looks more car dealership than a brand.

ouch haha never thought putting in hard work and making a quality product would be bad thanks for the input @mrsovl
I think he means it comes off a little forced. Atleast that's the impression I got. Cut out the b.s. extra shine and just show us what your brand embodies. Just be authentic with it.

aight so basically this shirt is releasing friday with some other stuff. So imma do a preview a day for the next four days til the drop comes out. We would hope you've seen this stuff before from us when we tried to charge an arm and a leg for it before. This time it'll be reasonably priced and we're gonna do it for the people who've been there since SSE. Hey I'm not gonna hype it up man check it out its gonna be fire




The arms say "true pleasure never comes before pain"
Store/Friday


Nice but what's that creature running suppose to symbolize.
thanks man, its technically another brand really. I drew it while I was in college before I dropped out and shit. It really just symbolizes........nothing I guess. Its just a tiger I drew most likely while I was under the influence. But the message on the arms mean alot to me tho. "true pleasure never comes before pain" means that youll never get to where you really wanna be before you have to go through some shit you know

That's what happens you try to sell a lifestyle.
I see that a lot as well. Not that it's a bad thing. But you have to find a median when it comes to advertising/promoting. It works for some people though.
