CaptainObvious.Yo. I have an item I need that no one sells. I need one of those shirts that make you look like you're darth Vader.
Here's the catch. I need it on a non fitted women's low cut tank top. That's why I can't find it for sale. Anyone help me out?
ROBOTCheck some of these out. http://bellacanvas.com/bella-canvas/womens-bella/tanks
Not printed to look like darth vader...yet
nutz.dude are you selling this? I'd buy
T-Lan_DistrictBeen looking into Hotronix heat press'es. Do you use a heat press or Screen print? Just want some thoughts on what you think on heat presses.
theabortionatorI'd buy that shirt.
cdipI have been trying to get into screen printing. But my text just comes out smudgy and a little blury on the edges.
ROBOTexplain some more of your process. There are a few things that could affect edge quality or a print. like off contact of the screen, the hardness of the squeegee you use, the angle you pull the squeegee.
skigl198Got into it seeing Yoke Collection do it. Made my own press and now I own my own apparel company. Very fun stuff, can be frustrating without the professional tools/equipment
spliff.LifeI worked as a screen printer for a little over a year at a medium sized shop, we would do like 50-1000 shirt orders typically. Then I decided I wasnt a human robot lol. Its definitely fun if youre making your own stuff though imo. I kinda tried to start a company but in the end decided against it, and have just made shirts for me and my friends when we have ideas. I have a single color hinge press at home which works well, basically a hinge that holds the screen mounted on a table, and I cure with a heat gun.
these were some of my first shirts, feel free to ask questions if there are any
dodgeThe press must have been pretty good quality considering the detail of those designs. I'm guessing that it wasn't home made...
