Cheapest T-Shirt Printing Method?
I Find Myself Making A Lot Of Custom T-Shirts Off A Website, And I Have Come To The Realization That I Am Spending More Than I Can Afford. $16+ Is A Lot When You Are Buying One Once A Week, Or Every Two Weeks, Ect. I Started To Think That I Could Make My Own! I Want To Buy A Machine Off The Internet, And I Would Like To Know What The Cheapest Type Of Machine I Could Buy. (But I Want It To Be Able To Print In Color). Also, It Would Be Awesome If You Could Tell Me Approximately How Much It Cost And How It Works! Thanks!
There are plenty of machines you can buy. The ones I've seen range from about $500 to $5,000. They all use silk screening.
If you're just printing a few, there are sheets you can run through an inkjet printer that'll transfer the image onto a T-shirt. I have my suspicions about durability and quality, but that'd be a lot cheaper than what you're spending.
The problem with silkscreening is that there's a lot of upfront effort and cost that goes into creating the screens. That's why you typically see a minimum quantity for shirts, and why the price per shirt drops radically the more you buy. You really wouldn't want to go through all that effort just to print a single shirt a week.
There are plenty of videos online showing how it works. You basically make a separate screen for each color you want to use in your shirt. Then (on the lower end models) you position the screen in its holder over the shirt, lower it, and squeegee the ink onto the shirt. You raise the screen, put in the screen for the second color, and repeat the process.
Hope that helps.
Wer Can U Go 2 Get Cheap Name Brand Clothes?
Target! The clothing there is made by a ligitiment designer and the prices aren't high at all. There is a bunch of cute stuff there, where as in t.j. maxx and marshall they get the clothes the stores turn away so it's harder to find something appealing there. Also look at Charlotte Russe. They have very affordable clothes. They also have really nice stuff. Goodluck!
What'S The Best Store To Get Maternity Clothes From As Far As Cost Of Clothes And The Quality Of The Clothes Stuff Like That...
Old Navy has cute maternity clothes but they can get pricey...if you don't mind spending a few more minutes going thru the clearance racks then you can find awesome deals.
Ross has lots and lots of maternity clothes and I get a lot of mine there shirts that are under seven dollars and jeans/capris under 15. And most of them are name brand too which makes it really neat.
Another place is off ebay. I get some off there. Make sure to know what size you are in different brands...if not measure yourself and if you like something then ask the seller what the measurements of the garment is. I forgot to do that and got a pair of capris that were too big in the leg area and a shirt that was a medium but it was so stretchy and slinky that it looked more like a bigger large.
Good Luck and hope you find some!!

I Need To Make To Find A Transparency Maker To Make Screen Prints, Can Anyone Help? Please Advise.
I think you are caught up in a vocabulary change which will confuse most younger people as it does me.
Transparency is something that is laid down on an overhead projector to show an image.
Screen prints are captures of a computer screen
I think you mean
Screen prints are made in "silk screen" printing where the image is transferred by wiping ink across a fabric surface where the pattern is blocked out so the image only is allowed through in some places.
I also think (not being deep into this process)
That the industry has completely changed and now uses photographic development of screens using UV lamps or sunlight and negatives which are printed on transparent plastic using low cost (up to a certain size) laser or ink jet printers.
