Why Screenprinting SUCKS and Why T-shirt Transfers Rule

Here’s a Cheaper Alternative to Making Your Own T-shirt Designs

For many of you, starting a t-shirt business is a dream and passion you’ve been contemplating for a while. And when you finally make the decision to move forward, many seem to think that screen printing their own t-shirts  is the route to go. In this post, I’ll attempt to explain why I think screen printing your own t-shirts suck, and why t-shirt transfers rule!

I get a ton of questions about using the heat press method, versus the screen printing method; and for the first time ever, I express my hatred for screen printing!

Lot’s of people seem to think screen printing is easy and cheap. It ain’t easy! And I often wonder why anyone getting into business would want to fool with all the ‘processes’ required to screen print a t-shirt…

Watch the video below to see what I mean… You have to go through all this drama to make new designs — while you’re watching this video, just imagine the cost to get all this stuff… and imagine how much MESS you gotta clean up when you’re done!

Video: How to Start a Screen Printing T-shirt Business

You had to go through all that drama to make a 1-color t-shirt. Imagine the process if you had 3-4 colors on a design! You’d have to do everything you just did in the video above 3-4 times!!!

In fact, here’s another video about this very thing…

Screen Printing a Multicolor T-shirt Design

Do you really want to make your own t-shirts like that?

I imagine most people wanting to start their own t-shirt business to promote their own line of t-shirts/designs don’t want to have to go through all of this… Now if you’re in the business of making t-shirts for other businesses, then I can see why you need to go the screen printing route. But for the individual who wants to promote their own line of tees, there is a cheaper and faster alternative that provides the same quality!

Another thing about screen printing is you must order a huge inventory in order to get a decent price break. Not only that, to have a decent amount of inventory, you’d have to order a bunch of small, medium, large, and extra large tees to have on-hand.

Then you’ll need to get it in white, black, gray, navy blue, green and so on…. You have to get all these sizes and colors because you don’t know beforehand what someone will order, therefore, causing you to purchase a huge inventory to have on hand when someone orders. Before you know it, you’ll have 2,500 t-shirts sitting in your garage hoping someone orders everything you got.

That’s Why I Like T-shirt Heat Transfers and a T-shirt Heat Press!

I like custom t shirt heat transfers better because you don’t have to print up a huge inventory of tshirts that’ll just sit on a rack. I like this route because I can print on demand. I like this route because I don’t have a big nasty mess when I’m done. Plus I can print t-shirts in a spare bedroom, or at the kitchen table.

See the T-shirt Heat Press & Heat Transfers I Use to Run My T shirt Business

NOW… the transfers presented in this video are NOT the same ones you find at the local Wal-mart. And no, these aren’t the type of transfers you run through your printer that’s connected to your home computer.

These transfers are a special paper whereby a screen printer takes your design and makes an actual screen as shown in the first video; but instead of printing your design onto a t-shirt, they put the design onto this ‘special release’ paper (transfer sheet), that allows you to transfer the design at a later date (on-demand).

So… instead of having 2,500 t-shirts pre-printed up and waiting for someone to purchase, you get these transfers and make t-shirts as the orders come in.

This is a very quick process with no messy inks to cleanup. You can literally make a t-shirt in less than 10 seconds.

This method also works on any colored t-shirt and yes, that includes your ability to print onto black colored tees as well!

The designs transferred onto the t-shirts are the same inks used by screen printers. Ironically, if you took ‘these’ tshirts to a screen printer. The vast majority would not be able to tell you it was done with a heat transfer. The inks are identical and there’s no misty film going around your design when you use this process.

T-shirt Heat Transfers are Great and Inexpensive

I have t-shirts I printed 10 years and they still look great… just a slight wear from washing and drying over 10 years, but what shirt wouldn’t show stress after 10 years of wear and tear?

The cost is fairly inexpensive… Like screen printing, it’s based on the quantity you order and the number of colors in the design.

You can actually get these for as little as .50 cents a transfer (with the design on it)… but again, it’s all based on quantity and number of colors.

Many companies can have your design put onto this ‘release paper’ and shipping out to you within 24 hours of ordering… Some offer same day service.

This is why I love the t-shirt heat transfer method.

The biggest expense you’ll have is getting the heat press machine. If you don’t mind getting a used one, you can find these on craigslist.com for as little as $200-$400. If you want new, expect to pay around $750 and as much as $1,999; all dependent upon what you’re wanting. They come in different sizes and I recommend getting nothing smaller than a 16×20 (which is what I’m using in the video).

Fact of the matter is this, the t-shirt transfers are actually made from the same inks used in screen printing. In fact, the transfers are made the same way t-shirts are.

Bottomline: The t-shirt transfer process is simple. Someone else does all the work and sends you the completed transfer. It’s not messy, it doesn’t take a long time, you don’t have to wait for your inks to dry, etc….

In addition to a printed t-shirt, I’ll also pull out “one” random ‘heat transfer’ design and will include it in your package so you can see what an actual ‘heat transfer’ looks like. This transfer is what the various companies can make for you with your own design.

Cartess, I agree with you totally. The cost and time it takes to set up and burn screens for
multicolor s does not give you the profit needed to be successful, especially in smaller runs.

Please keep up the good work of keeping us informed of the best way of making money in
this business.

You can’t mix your own spot color. It has only one colorformat and that is CMYK…:(

    have you considered that your spot color is actually just a CMYK color masquerading around with a pantone color code? 80% of my clients who think they need a spot color dont actually.

If you take drawings into screen printing places, they basically can decide whether or not they want to help you by putting the designs on the special paper right? Of course if they decide to i’ll probably have to pay them. Do they have the special paper or should I purchase that some where else? If so, where?

Not many screen printers do this — you’ll probably have to find them online. It’s not like you go buy the paper and take it to them. Those that do it already have the supplies/materials. They’ll simply charge you to do it for you.

Hi, do you have to deal with the shirt image cracking, cause that’s what I seen with alot of transfers. Are they the same quality as screen printing, and do you use screenprinting for some of your shirts. Thank you I want to produce quality products

Absolutely not… Never had a problem with cracking, fading or anything. As mentioned previously, these aren’t the type of transfer you run through a home printer. Check out this post here:

    Hello. You don’t have to buy the paper. The screen-print company of your selection will provide it with your design on it. It’s included on their price. We actually bough Mr. Cartess course and have been very helpful. Just make sure to set up your heat press machine at the right temperature with the right pressure for the right garment and you will be able to offer high quality prints to your clients.

They do not fade, crack or break… Now some vendors make better quality transfers than others, so it’s possible it could crack or break if you’re dealing with shysters and cheapos who try and cut corners 🙂

Thank you for the wealth of information you are sharing. I have been researching the tshirt business for over a year and have not been satisfied with the type of information I found until I came across your video on you tube and I joined your news letter. What you shared about screen printing is awsome information for me to know and I see keeping it simple is the best way to get into profit mode quick. Pressing on demand just makes sense & I thank God for you because now God and I can start a Christian clothing line. So awsome man of God. Thank you once again, my next step is to buy a heat press machine and finde some designs to experiment with. Also, who would you recommend for your own logo design and where is a good place to buy some tshirts wholesale?

Thank you once again and may God bless you abundantly,

Hi Wilson,

I apologize, I’m going to copy and paste this from a question I just answered. 🙂

We actually don’t print our own transfers! We deal directly with several companies that specialize in transfers, etc. Printing your own, isn’t cost effective, doesn’t provide the same quality nor does the color on the transfer last when printing them yourself. After your customer has washed the shirt a few times the color begins to fade! Most importantly, it’s too time consuming, which doesn’t free you up to focus on what “really matters” which is: growing your business!

In our course, we provide direct contact with our sources! Which you can purchase most transfers as little as $1.00.

Yeah, it’s not so inexpensive.  Selling your courses is all fine and dandy, but please don’t be misleading. In your video you show your “iron on stickers” all nice and prepped. Pretty sure Jesus wouldn’t just magically forget to mention the cost of sublimation ink, the cost of the printer, cost of the sublimation paper. Not to mention Photoshop and Illustrator in the process of prepping to art work.  Also, you shouldn’t dog screen printers when you’re in the same line of business.  We usually try to help each other out.  Bad form.

    Cartess Ross says

    If you’ve actually spent any amount of time on the site, you’d know we don’t recommend sublimation inks, nor the printer nor the sublimation paper at all. In fact, we don’t even discuss the sublimation process at all because it’s so expensive.

    If you’re a screen printer, this site isn’t for you… It’s for those looking for a reasonable option to get started in the t-shirt business and the heat transfer (press) method is a viable one.

    You have your opinion and I respect it… Have a blessed day Sid.

We provide everything you need to know! From getting your business set up as an legitimate business, marketing, website info, where to purchase the transfers at whole sale, where to purchase the t-shirts at wholesale cost, etc. For the $200 you spent for 12 shirts. You will receive much more when going through the companies we use! Please keep in mind, the more colors you have in your design; the more money it will cost you to have the design printed on a transfer. If I were you. I would start off with may 2 colors in the designs, and expand from there.

God has been giving me some wonderful ideas to use for t-shirts and other items.  I guess me finding your website was his doing too.  I have learned some things I needed to know and I really didn’t know where to start.  For weeks now these things just keep coming to me and I feel so strongly that this is what I need to do.  I am kind of shy and don’t feel comfortable trying to talk to someone about Jesus, but I feel through these ideas that keep coming to me that is God trying to tell me this will be my way of telling others about Him and His son.

Hi Cartess, do you have any opinion on ProWorld’s custom work where you send them a design and they create the transfers? They say they use plastisol, so I’m guessing it’s probably as good as the others? I saw on your video you mention TransferExpress.com and we might give them a try too. But ProWorld’s prices seem pretty good.

Thanks!!!
Jeff

Reply
    Cartess Ross says

    I got them listed in our vendors list, but I haven’t personally used them in many years… But you’re right, their prices are reasonable and it’s worth giving it a try. Ask to see if they’ll send you samples of stuff they’ve already made so you can test it out.

    Reply
      Jeff says

      Hi, just a quick followup: We ordered the sample kit from ProWorld’s custom work, and it’s very good — much better than anything I could print on my inkjet printer. (And much more cost effective — I went through a quarter of my color ink when I printed a full-page transfer myself. The cartridges are $40, so that’s $10 that I blew through by printing it myself!)

      So I think I’m happy with proworld. But next I’ll try the others and then compare. It looks like transferexpress.com might be good too.

      Also, if you’re looking for a topic for a blog, here’s one: I wanted to be able to offer on my own website the pre-made designs that ProWorld offers. They sort of have it worked out; you sign up with their site “art4myshirt” and you get your own subdomain. It’s $9.99 a month, but I think I’m going to cancel. I just signed up and the problem is there’s no way for the customers to actually *choose* the designs they like. All they can do is browse through the designs and look at them. (I guess they assume the customer will write down the item number or something and email it to me?) To me, that’s kind of useless. So I guess I’ll look elsewhere for a hosted shop.

Just wondering about the heat press we purchase some teeshirts that was clearly heat press and the image faded as soon as we wash it .. My daughter thought about doing her own ,Is it normal for the image to fade on heat press transfers.

    Hi Weequahic,

    Sounds like the transfers were purchased from some local store. If so, yes that’s completely normal. Which is why we recommend designs be screen printed onto the plastisol transfers.

I’m currently working on my designs for my t-shirts to sale and put on my website. Question how many designs should I have in my inventory to just get started?

Reply
    Cartess Ross says

    No real simple answer. I’d personally have at least a total of 100 — a variety of sizes. Most t-shirt distributors have warehouses throughout the U.S. Once you place an order, you can typically have them at your front door within 1-2 days. Therefore, worrying about inventory shouldn’t be too much of an issue.

    Hi Travis,

    That’s the reason we do not recommend printing from a printer. 🙂 we highly recommend screen printed transfers. Printing from a printer will not provide you the same results as screen printed designs and will not last as longer.

    We have a source list available for purchase. The source list includes various companies to purchase custom, and pre-made transfers from a list of transfer vendors as well as vendors to purchase blank shirts.

    The price for custom transfers will be determined by the amount of colors you have in your design. If you are on a tight budget then I would recommend no more than 2 colors in the design. The more colors in the design the more it will cost to have the designs screen printed onto the release paper.

Hi,

Ive got a question and I haven’t found many answers online. I need to know asap as I am planning on going ahead within the next few days, so I may need to order the heat press machine and send out designs to get transfers. Ok, so my question: I have created some illustrations which I need to go on t-shirts that contain approximately 10 different colors. The colours are all block and not fading into each other. Would the number of different colors increase the costs significantly? I understand if I were to screen print this I would need 10 separate screens per design? How should I go about this and what do you recommend? Any tips?

Look forward to your reply 🙂

Thanks,
JC

    Hi JC,

    Absolutely! The more colors you have in your design the more it will cost you. Also, by you wanting to only get 10 shirts printed that will also cost you more. Have you tried getting these printed by a local screen printer? Basically, all you need to do is send the digital file to a local screen printer, or transfer company to have printed.

      Hi Kimberly!

      Thanks for your reply.

      Sorry I think my questions were not clear, but I want to print T-shirt designs (OR maybe just * 1 * t-shirt design due to small timescale). I would want to order 100-250 T-shirts in total consisting of sizes XS, S, M, L, XL

      Most importantly is that the design will contain * 10 * different colours, and quite a bit of detail.

      My questions/concerns:

      1. Is there any guides to what is possible with screen printing? (for example you cannot *neatly* print smaller than font size 10, or a certain line thickness as a minimum?)

      2. Due to there being 10 different colours present in the design, will this increase the costs significantly?

      3. As there are 10 different colours, does that mean there are 10 separate screens required? WIll the accuracy be affected, as in the print being mis-aligned? Is there any possible complications?

      4. The design will consist of a series of about 25 graphic style characters representing players of a sports team. The style will be similar to Nintendo Wii avatars if you re-call them? Imagine 25 of them in rows on a tee, could you see any complications? Would the eyelid line in-between the eyes and eyebrows be too small a detail to screen print?

      Thats a whole load of questions there 😛

      I appreciate your time in helping and open to your advise and direction!

      Many thanks,

        SImply send the screen printers what you wrote here and they’ll be more than happy to give you much better advice.

    Kimberly Ross says

    HI Mary,
    We don’t offer any printing services, only to provide those with information who’s looking to get started in the t-shirt business. Here’s some more information you may have very useful!

    Your biggest expense getting started will be the heat press machine 16×20 in size. We no longer sell the machines. The brand of machines we recommend, Hotronix. You can contact Stalhs directly to purchase the machine. The machine starts at $995 and up. http://hotronix.com

    Here’s some more information you may have very useful!

    We recommend screen printed transfers. We do not recommend printing from a printer just for the sake of quality. You want to be in business selling products that will allow people to buy from you over and over again; as well as refer others to you. Sadly, printing from a printer will not allow you to do so.

    Once you have your designs created; you can send the digital files of the designs to transfer companies. They can take your design and screen printed directly onto the special release paper. There are no printers involved in this process. All the designs are printed by screen printing equipment. Once the designs have been screen printed onto the special release paper instead of directly on shirts. They’ll send you the transfers; which you’ll press directly onto the shirts using the heat press machine you’ve purchased.

    The cost of having designs printed will vary; it depends on the amount of colors you have in the design. The more colors you have in the design the more it will cost. If you’re starting with a limited budget; we recommend no more than 2.
    Another fact in cost of getting the designs screen printed will be determined by the amount of transfers you have printed. The less you have printed the more you’ll pay. The more you have printed the cost to have the transfers printed, cost drops.

    We have a source list available for purchase. The source list includes various companies to purchase custom, and pre-made transfers from a list of transfer vendors as well as vendors to purchase blank shirts.

    The price for custom transfers will be determined by the amount of colors you have in your design. If you are on a tight budget then I would recommend no more than 2 colors in the design. The more colors in the design the more it will cost to have the designs screen printed onto the release paper.

    Or you can locate a local screen printer in your area to screen printed directly onto blank shirts you supply the screen printer to print on. It’s actually cheaper to purchase your own shirts and give to the screen printer. The price once again will be determined by the amount of colors in the design and how many shirts you have printed. You’ll need to locate a local screen printer in your area to determine prices.

There actually is a slight quality difference. Screen printing directly onto a shirt feels better and lasts longer than screen print from a transfer because you actually push the wet plastisol into the fabric. I use both methods. Still, thanks for all the help you give.
