I have some ideas for T-shirt graphics and am thinking of marketing them.  I don't really want to do the stencilling myself though.  Is there anybody on here who using a printing company for their shirts?  Any advice - is it a good idea or bad idea?

Also, I'm wondering if anyone knows of good sources for T-shirts.  I'm not wanting a big, boxy look - am wanting a good quality T, more form-fitting with some stretch in it.  I want to market these to higher end boutiques.

Thanks for your help!!!

I don't know about screenprinting places but I can tell you about T-shirts places.

They may be able to tell you where to do silk screening.
Good luck.

cozmographics.com does tshirts. I've never used them for that, though..

Hm. Maybe selling the designs would work better? Getting tshirts would be a hugeee investment.

I've been looking into having my designs put onto tshirts. I did searches online for "wholesale printed tshirt" "custom silk screen shirts" and other search words. I found many sites, but I haven't decided on any yet.
Currently I am leaning towards http://www.brokenarrowwear.com/
Just remember that if you have shirts printed for you they usually require a minimum order. I've seen anywhere from 100 minimum to 1000 minimum.

What will you do with the shirts that don't sell? If you start out with an operation like cafepress, which requires no inventory, you can get a handle on what would sell. You still have to market it, of course, but it's all online and people can get not only the design they want, but the size and the type of shirt.
