    just a quick question for any tmp'rs out there with any experience of getting tshirts printing , over the past couple of weeks stopher and myself have produced a line of tshirts for the bierkeller brass group , but our printing is time consuming , expensive and not very good after a few washes , can anyone recomend a printing type which is hard wearing , bier-proof and will last more than a few washes...

    Nick - have you thought of embroidery as an alternative to printing?

    Try Protec Direct - http://www.protecdirect.co.uk/List.asp?i=56&n=Casual+Clothing

    They specialise in PPE and branded workwear, but I got a set of fleeces for Blackley Band from them a few years ago with the logo embroidered on for quite a reasonable price (worked out about £10-11 each, polo shirts or something similar would be cheaper).

    Maybe he can't sew? :rolleyes: :tongue:

    Seriously, most towns have a shop that can do this sort of thing, usually tucked away round one of the back streets somewhere. In Reading, I can think of at least one, that also does ear piercing and tatooing etc. I can't speak for their other services, but their T-shirt printing is OK! I'd be surprised if a town near you didn't have something like that. Try the Yellow Pages?

    I'll fill you in with the rest of the details when you ring but we got decent screen printed t shirts - cotton traders, heavy weight in small, med, large and extra large and small ladies sizes printed on front and back on balck, navy, red and a pale brown - 100% cotton for a tour back in March. Think we paid around £4.00 per t shirt and we got 500. Obviously the amount varies depending on quantity but I'll let you have one to see the quality.
    I reckon they're beer proof - I've a couple that have been through the wash many times and the logos still look ace.

    You're probably better off getting the t-shirts embroidered instead of printed. It may cost a little extra initially but you'll save lot on replacing worn t-shirts
