Where can I find out more about the technical side of printing t-shirts and things?

There are 2 main methods to custom print. The first is the traditional screenprinted method.

Screenprinting is great for one, two and more separate ink colors. Full color (process color) is also available but very expensive.

The second is the Sublimation Transfer method. This would include the use of Laser Transfers, Copiers, Offset, Mimeo, Inkjet and other methods.

This process is best when transfers are applied to white or light colored products.

There are many forums in Delphi which discuss each process. Check them out. (Fred of US Colorprint)
