Have you ever wanted to get one shirt printed,maybe with a piece of your own art or a picture of your dog,but the set-up costs were too high and the price at places like Cafe Press or Zazzle were out of line with the quality of the finished product? Well,The Art Boutiki is now offering digital apparel printing with no minimum order and (for a limited time) no set-up fee if your images are ready to print and trouble free
Unlike screen printing,digital apparel printing is a high resolution,full-color process. Basically anything you can get out of a laser printer or desktop inkjet printer you can get out of our new DTG machine. It prints equally well on dark or light shirts (dark shirts cost more though) and unlike screen printing the finished product does not feel like a giant plastic shield on your chest. Examples of shirts we are selling in our gallery can be seen here.
DTG printing,while more expensive,provides a more detailed and colorful image than screen printing. This is NOT a transfer process,these inks are sprayed directly into the fabrics for a soft,natural feel and long-lasting prints.
Watch the video below and see how it is done,then come on down with your ready-to-print tiff or png image. For a limited time we are offering a single shirt on white as a sample for a mere $5.00. Regular pricing is $18.95 for a print on white shirt,$24.95 for a print on a black or other colored shirt.
It doesn't stop at t-shirts either,we can print on any natural fabric so bags,sweatshirts and the like are possible and coming soon we will be offering printing on non-apparel items made of wood,plastic and even glass.
We are also offering contract pricing for clubs,shirt designers and artists. In addition to our DTG machine we have a fine art quality printer which is great for small prints and greeting cards and as a publisher with over 25 years in the fulfilment business we can ship your shirts or other products for you to almost anywhere in the world.
T-shirt makers: I did some brief research on this and I found that one can get t-shirts printed cheaply at many vendors if it is one-side and one-color. Two sides or more colors and the price goes up very fast, making it hard to imagine being able to sell any at a profit. If you want to do your own printing, I imagine you have to buy or lease a machine, which may be thousands of dollars. Are you looking for a service or a machine? Many of the machine vendors have video tutorials on their sites, but I haven't really looked into this. Heat transfer seems to work on t-shirts and mugs, but different machines ($$$)
