Ok so you have a basic idea of the printing methods and hopefully you have some inspiration and vision for your line…so now what do you do?
Before you really get into it you should be familiar with what resources and garments you have available to print on. Here is a list of some blank apparel manufactures available for print. I am sure I missed some but these are some well known and not as popular brands you can look at.
Follow us on twitter for more articles and resources about the clothing industry!
Here are my personal favorites along with the quality…
American Apparel Most popular among indie clothing brands, I think its a little over rated
Alternative Pricey but great styles and quality
Tultex Best value for the money
Alstyle Good basic shirt to start with
Eternal Very high quality, high end type shirts
The ones marked with asterisks are some of the more used ones in the industry.
