See my vest, see my vest, made from real gorilla chest

Looking for a place that sells work vests -- similar to the Wal-Mart style -- with a screenprinting/embroidery option. My first choice for screenprinting, CustomInk, doesn't carry vests like this. Anyone know where I might be able to source such a item?

Screen printing on dark fabric?

I work with a small nonprofit that wants to screen print at least 50 (and up to 150) tote bags by Sunday (next Saturday in a pinch). Ideally we'd like to do (a) bright turquoise on black and (b) off-white on royal blue, but we're not sure if this is feasible. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. [more inside]

Where to start in the business of printing and shipping my own poster de

As an illustrator/letterer living in Toronto and I want to start selling my posters, but I need to know how to handle the post-designing aspect of things (type of printing, best standard paper stocks, type of packaging, type of shipping/drop-shipping, pricing, ...). It is an overwhelming endeavor but I have to start somewhere. Any comprehensive, step-by-step resources on this sort of thing out there? [more inside]

Screen printing office setup

We want to build a screen printing setup at work. I had a studio back in the day where some friends and I made an exposure table, a printing rig and place to store the screens. That part, I've got down. What I don't know how to get around here is a spray booth. There is no water source in the actual studio. We do, however, have a kitchen area and there are bathrooms so I have access to water, I just need to figure out a good way to put this together. Does anyone have experience with printing in less than ideal places? Thanks!

Where can I get screen printed posters made?

I've got some designs I want printed. Small run, around 25 pieces. I've been trying to get something set up with Holy Mountain, Shout Out Loud, etc. but it's been quite difficult getting a response.

Gocco printer masters don't image correctly

Anyone out there with a gocco printer? I am having a problem with mine. The masters aren't imaging correctly. When I expose the master, the image doesn't burn into the screen enough to allow for the ink to pass through. I even tried exposing my screen twice and it still didn't work. Has anyone had this happen? Any suggestions on what I could do?

For a while now, my ex-fashion student Kaffrin, and writing student Me have been wanting to hop aboard the t-shirt printing bandwagon. Is there a cheap, high-quality screenprinting kit out there?
