There has always been a certain romance to the idea of producing t-shirts for a living. I think it started for me back in the 60s when tie dyed t-shirts were made by literally tieing a blank t-shirt up with rubber bands and then dipping it into dyes. Printing techniques have come a long way and today it is really possible to start a t-shirt business without a huge investment and without even having any equipment. At least to start one. Eventually you would want to expand and really make a going business out of this.

There are some online sites like Zazzle, for instance, that will create a t-shirt of your own design for you and offer it up for sale as well. They have their own store, so to speak, and will place your design into their database where others will see it. It seems best to market your creations on your own though, as visitors to their database have everyone else’s creations to sift through as well as yours. I have sold quite a few shirts through them. I believe all the sales have come through my own marketing efforts.

There are ways to do this all yourself too. There are heat transfers. You can get these made and do a sort of mass production of t-shirts at your home. These transfers are simply ironed 수원셔츠룸 onto a blank t-shirt and the “transfer” moves from one medium to another. You have the luxury of making these t-shirts one at a time as you make a sale too, which can be advantageous for many. Especially when you are just starting out.

There are some very inexpensive kits to get a basic silk screen system setup. This is a bit more tedious for the beginner but it can be done and is worth looking into. In a nut shell you have a very fine screen that is of a silk like material. You take a design on a transparency and expose that to the silk screen. This makes parts of the screen allow ink to go through and other parts to withhold the ink. What happens is that the ink winds up on the t-shirt only where your design wants it to be. Lettering for example or a design. Complex shirts are a bit more difficult to produce and each color has to be done separately. With these beginner kits this is really a time consuming process. It can be done, but I would not recommend that expect to operate a business this way.

Once you have got your foot in the door so to speak though, you can expand and purchase your own screen printing equipment and begin to really produce sellable t-shirts for all occasions. There are screen printing presses that will print on just about anything. Many are of a generic nature and can be made to print on a coffee mug as well which opens up more opportunities for business.
