    hi, i just recently designed a t-shirt for a badminton team and i was wondering if anybody knew where i can get these t-shirts printed? I was looking for a company that does silk-screening but any company that does any type of printing would be taken into consideration. So, if anybody knows of any t-shirt printing companies, that would be great. Thanks

    There are so many places I don't even know where to start...

    lets see:

    photostores:
    - Blacks
    - Shoppers
    - FutureShop
    - Walmart, etc etc.

    Office stores:
    - Staples/Buessiness depot
    - Office Depot
    - Grand & toy

    Sports stores:
    - pretty much all of them, national sports even does jerseys, hats, gloves ,etc etc

    expect around $15 a heavy cotton t-shirts with single-colour ink printed professionally for a batch of 50. Colour shirts are very expensive, and not worth it unless you are ordering more than 200.

    You could always buy one of those sheets where you print onto off your printer and then iron it on to the shirt but that might be a bit pricy but it works

    NP :)

    The local photo place by where i live does both, so i'm confident that most of the bigger stores does both as well. You'll probably want to do heat transfers if your team is small because silk screening is quite expensive unless you buy in bulk. From what i remember, a club at my school ordered a couple thousand dollars worth of printed shirts and it came to about 15$ a shirt. They were nice shirts though. I think its so expensive because the ink plate costs almost a hundred dollars to mold. I could be wrong though so you should probably double check.
