Answering Some Frequently Asked Questions

Here at the Shirt Shack, we offer multiple state-of-the-art processes to decorate apparel. Which process is best depends on the design you choose and the color of the shirt you are looking for. Here is a little process description and our suggestions, we hope this helps you feel more confident with your selections.

  • Laser Transfer
  • This is the most common and cheapest process. This process uses a special paper and layers of heat-activated transfer ink to print on the standard '50%-cotton/50%-polyester' t-shirt. These transfer's light colors are transparent so the t-shirt color does affect the final result. Dark color fabrics change and even hide the transfer colors. Also, the transfers have a transparent/opaque base layer that the color layers are printed on. The base layer is larger and can be felt and seen around the design's edges.

    With this process, we cannot print bright colors on dark-colored garments. No matter what color we print, it will not show up on a black t-shirt. It's like using a highlighter pen on black paper, it just doesn't show up. Also, transfers can not print white for the same reason, the colors are somewhat transparent. Laser Transfer colors are genuine and beautiful when printed on white t-shirts, and most designs print very well on light value t-shirt colors as noted.

    The best garment colors for Laser Transfer print are on White, Ash Grey, Sand, and Light Blue.

    The Laser Transfer process can print up to an 8.5” x 11” piece of paper. (images size 8”x 10.5” max) the size of a standard piece of paper.

    T-shirts are $7.99 up to and including AXL, $11.99 for 2Xl, 3XL-5XL are $14.99.

    Transfers are $6.00 per transfer. Printed front and back would be counted as 2 transfers.

  • Partial Sublimation
  • The next available process is called Partial Sublimation - this process requires the transfer to be placed on a performance-ware shirt (100% Polyester) the shirts we carry feel like a cotton shirt. This process dye’s the fibers of the material and will not be felt on the garment. Again, these must be placed on light-colored garments. Like the laser transfers, if we try to put the transfer on dark colored shirts it just shows up black.

    The best colors to use are White, Sand, Silver, or Light Blue. These will show all the colors in your design. With the shirt colors of Red, Safety Orange, Safety Green, about the only color that prints well on them is Black.

    For this process the performance-ware shirts are $11.99 up to and including XL, 2XL is $15.99, 3XL is $18.99.

    Transfers are $8.00 per transfer and can print up to 13”x19” design (image 12.5” x 18” max). Remember, printing front and back count as 2 transfers.

  • Silk Screen
  • We do offer the traditional Silk Screen processing of items as well. We do not do this in-house and have a supplier for large quantity orders.

  • Factory Transfers
  • We can also do Factory Transfers if you have a large order or wish to have 100% cotton shirts. This is just like silk-screening but with this process, you can purchase the transfers, then have shirts made as you need them to save you some money. This process is also based on the number of colors in your design just like silk-screened garments. These transfers are good for a year. So what we do is that you pay for the transfers upfront, and then as you need shirts throughout the year you are only buying the shirts you need at that time.

  • Full Dye Sublimation
  • Then we have the top of the Line Full Dye Sublimation – these types of garments are fully sublimated (the design covers 100% of the fabric), and then cut and sewn together giving you the brightest colors, softest feel, and full design coverage. They are also made of 100% polyester. We can produce a wide range of apparel for your corporation, Team wear, or event.
