I need to have some fabric printed up. I want fabric with guns on it, or weapons like grenades and knives and such, but can't find it on the internet. Anyone know of a good place to get fabric printed? Or maybe a place I can get fabric with guns or weapons on it?

Do you have lots of money to spend on this endeavor? The most recent issue of Threads magazine has an article on the places that do things like custom fabric dying, buckles & notions etc. None of them are cheap. [cannot find my magazine in the pile on my desk] The numbers that come to mind was for a dying place that would do a single yard in your custom color in silk for a mere $70-90 for a solid color.

Yeah, I've done some research on this, and it seems like a "SMALL run" is like 150 yards of fabric, and it MIGHT be as cheap as $10 a yard.  I haven't even actually found anywhere willing to do it, this is what I've gathered from a lot of research.
If you knew someone personally in the screenprinting biz, you might be able to sucker them into it.  Otherwise, your best bet would be to do it yourself.  That's my plan, I just keep procrastinating.

Dang! You would think that you could find some place that could print out just on cotton for people who are in business for themselves. I've been meaning to get into screen printing myself, but just don't have the room for yet another craft in my little apartment.  Undecided Oh well, I guess I'll just have to resort to buying t-shirts already printed with what I want. lol Thanks guys!

I found my copy of Threads.  There is a company called Dye-Namix Inc in New York that does custom dyeing and printing.  Their website is www.DyeNamix.com.  It says no minimum on the yardage in the article.
