Seems like there are just more reasons for custom t-shirts in the summer. Maybe because it’s t-shirt season and t-shirts are one of the easiest, most inexpensive type of custom printed garment you can create. I was reading the Great Garment Graphics blog and thought I would share the story, it was a great example of yet another reason to make a custom shirt. In this case for a group going on a rafting trip that wanted to create a “team” feeling as well as a commemorative t-shirt.

Creating custom t-shirts for small groups is easy with custom transfers and a heat press.

Also another excellent example of why custom transfers are so perfect for small quantities. It just simply would not have made financial sense to screen print these shirts for this small group. Thanks for sharing this story Transfer Express. It’s a perfect testimonial as to how easy and fun it is to create custom t-shirts with heat printing. If you’re not already signed up to get the RSS feed from the Great Garment Graphics blog, I encourage you to do so. Even if you think you don’t have time to read, I can guarantee that you will be inspired by the wealth of ideas and how-to information that is published regularly. If you’re online anyway…see what else they have to offer.

Sharing is caring!

    I need to figure out how to use Transfer Express! I would like to start adding custom transfers to my bling shirts. Is there someone who can help me with a first order, so I can learn how to use this?

    Hi Susan,
    It is pretty easy to get started, it depends if you have your own artwork already or if you want to create a design from the Transfer Express Idea Book’s selection of templates, where you can mix and match stock art ideas. It’s up to you. I forwarded your comment to Chris at Transfer Express and someone should be contacting you shortly. Congrats on your business, it looks like you have a great website and bling is one of the most popular looks for custom shirts right now. There is a lot you can do with combining bling with custom transfers. You should also check out the Great Garment Graphics website for how-to videos and webinars that we have had on bling. Thanks for reading.
