T Shirt Printing?

18 replies
Found 29th Jun 2010
I need to get 7 t shirts printed for a one off event (no, it's not a stag or hen night lol, it's a sports day!). I'm not overly bothered about decent quality as it's for a one off and thin t shirts might even be better!

I'm looking for front and back printing, hopefully with the back being a name and number and the front being a logo. (Presumably on a t shirt, but a polo is also an option, but I assume a lot more)

There seem to be quite a few to choose from so if anyone has experiences of ones to go for (or avoid!) that would be useful. I need a fairly nippy turn around - if I order today or tomorrow I'd like it to arrive by the start of next week.

This may help
UK Company Clothing - 0151 531 9950 Shawn or Danny.

They do all types of logos and printing and they are very helpful. Good luck.

Cheers, just looked at their website, it looks perhaps a tad corporate and perhaps aimed at more than 7 t shirts for a bit of a laugh at a sports day?!

I should also add we're on a fairly tight budget too probably got around 50 quid max to get the whole lot done and delivered, with cheaper being better!

Where are you located?

London, just by Liverpool Street.

Give them a ring, tell them your situation, they do all quality, and quantities, Good luck.

I thought they are quite cheap, but someone said watch the tick boxes, you may be signing up for a monthly subscription.

go to primark and get 7 tshirts for about £2 each
buy this off ebay

find someone who has an inkjet printer to print them off
iron on (cover with a pillow case or something so u dont burn or discolour the tshirt)
less than £20, although I would give the person with the printer a few quid towards ink
thats what I did whn I needed some t-shirts printed

just an option

would agree with making them yourself. especially if its just for a one off use.
make sure you get light coloured shirts though - the iron on prints work much better on white / light colours

That's looking like a pretty good option right now!

u can buy paper thats specially for use on dark fabrics, the seller of the item i listed above does both, it think its a pound or so more thow

could u not print the letters in forest green onto a light fabric?

That's the other choice. Getting the consensus amongst the team white vs green t shirt lol.

even the special dark colours paper isnt nearly as good as just using the normal paper with a white shirt though.
ive made quite a few in my time.

100% going to go down that route now, using the suggested eBay linked paper. Found some large numbers on eBay too, gonna bag them. I just hope my printer (Canon Pixma IP4200) is up to the job. It's only a logo, nothing like a photo etc.
