Starting Your Own T-shirt Business
To get started, all you need is a heat press! Once you have a press, you are open for business and can create custom screen printed shirts. You now have the most powerful tool needed to print custom apparel.
Potential customers are teams, schools, churches, local businesses, family reunions, and events to name a few. Anyone who wants to identify with a group is part of a potential order. Is there a fundraising walk in your area? Does the store next door need uniforms? Does your friend’s child need uniforms? Does the local high school’s senior class need a Class of ’14 shirt? Do the parents’ of the local football team need spirit wear? You can print all of these orders with a heat press.
If your customer has art, whatever they have can be sent to Transfer Express to create your custom transfer to be applied with your heat press. If they don’t have art, Transfer Express offers a huge collection of customizable layouts and clip art that will satisfy your customer. Just show them the Idea Book™, which is divided by category to make the search easy! Choose one of the layouts, have the text and clip art changed, choose your color, size and quantity and the screen printed transfer will be sent to you to be applied with your heat press to whatever apparel was chosen.
