Printing on White T-shirts
Updated for 2014
White T-shirts Example 1:
Lets say that you need 4 white t-shirts (3 large and 1 ladies medium) with your company logo on the left chest and a large image on the back. You live in Calgary.
Please refer to the price list just above.
This would work out to:
… $21.95 (for the 1st t-shirt + $37.50 (3 x $12.50) = $59.45 plus $13.50 shipping (Canada Post Expedited) = $72.95 plus GST = $76.50
This works out to an average all inclusive cost of $19.15 per t-shirt.
Now let’s say that instead you decide to order 12 white t-shirts with your printing on the left chest and large on the back. Again, shipping is to Calgary. You want 5 men’s large, 2, XL and 1 -XXL, 2 ladies medium and 2 youth XS for your kids. Remember now you’ll look at the pricing for 12 or more shirts. They would be $9.95 each for the regular sizes and $11.95 for the XXL (see below prices – they are an additional $2.00 each)
This would work out to:
… $109.45 (11 x $9.95) + $11.95 = $121.40 plus $17.50 for shipping = $138.90 plus GST = $145.85
This works out to an average all-inclusive cost of $12.15 per shirt.
The printing process for these custom tshirts uses quality t-shirt transfer paper and a colour laser printer. The image is then pressed onto the t-shirt using an automated commercial heat press. This process is similar to the store bought “iron on” transfers, however the difference is all of the ink is pressed evenly onto the shirt instead of just most of the ink.
All of the materials that we use are the commercial grade which are generally not available to the public at the retail level.
There have been some new developments in t-shirt transfer papers.
The new custom tshirts transfer papers that we use have increase the durability and wash-ability of the shirt. If you wash the t-shirts according to the instructions you will get numerous washes without any significant fading. Now these instructions will help your custom tshirts last better no matter who your t-shirt printer is or was.
- Turn your t-shirt inside out. People frequently wash jeans and t-shirts together. When you turn the custom tshirts inside out, the printing on the t-shirt doesn’t rub against the heavier fabric of the jeans or the zipper.
- Wash in cold water.
- Don’t use any bleach, bleach alternatives or fabric softener.
- Hang or lay your t-shirt flat to dry.
There is also a new type of custom tshirts printing paper referred to as self weeding. With many t-shirt papers you can see the coating that was on the transfer paper. This is the polymer that bonds the ink on the transfer paper to the shirt. The manufactures of the transfer paper instructs that the unprinted areas of the artwork should be trimmed away to avoid these areas being printed.
If you have ever seen custom tshirts printed and you see an ugly grayish box around the image it is because the t-shirt printer didn’t bother with that step.
When we make your custom tshirts at Tshirts Canada we always take the time to trim away the areas of the transfer that is not to be printed.
This new self weeding paper eliminates this issue. Any areas that don’t have ink on the transfer paper doesn’t leave the polymer. Only the areas where there is ink bonds with the paper. For example if I was to print the number “O” the inside of the O would look and feel the same as the area outside the O. All you have is the t-shirt itself with no coating.
There are a few of these papers on the market. Some work better than others. The one we use works great. However it is designed to work for specific types of custom tshirts artwork.
- Full Colour Printing (except white ink)
- No Minimum Order — Any Quantity (1, 12, 40. 150 or more — order the exact the quantity you need)
- No setup costs or any additional charges for orders of 12 or more (except for tax and shipping)
- Very affordable pricing (see below)
- Every shirt is individually bagged and tagged with your logo, the t-shirt size, and washing instructions.
- Various colours to choose from (see below)
- Also see our custom printed t-shirts sizing chart
- There is no white ink in this process.
- For example if you wanted to print the Canadian flag on a serene green t-shirt it would be red and serene green (the t-shirt colour)
- This process will absolutely not work on any dark t-shirts. If you would like dark please refer to any of the other processes.
- One other issue with printing onto light colour t-shirts with light ink colours, is that the ink is somewhat translucent. Printing light blue ink on yellow t-shirts can cause the colour to appear green (remember in school—blue and yellow make green)
