  3. HTV or Screen Printing for work shirts? It's a hard one to answer now with today's improved vinyls. "How does HTV hold up to washing? Is it durable? Will the letters peel? Which would last longer" I had a new customer ask this recently. I told them I thought HTV & Screen Printing would hold up about equal. We don't offer screen printing so I just gave them our HTV price. They needed 20 shirts so either method would be practical. The attached photo is what they were replacing and it was screen printed. Considering the wear on the shirt, I would say that screen printing held up really well and I told them that. They were checking around because the screen printer who made those had doubled the cost.....and they were looking for less expensive alternatives. Never heard back from them so I guess they went the screen printing route again or found someone cheaper. What do you all think? Thanks! Sue2

    font help needed

    FMF is very very good....it even lists similar fonts. Searches through fonts both online and in your computer... Well worth the purchase price.

    I would guess it's hand made...there is no consistency on the width of the strokes. The top and bottom angles of the "D" aren't the same. The angles on the "A" are all over the place...not at all even. The width of the top of the "D", "G", "A" & "F" are all different. Just trace it........

    I always consider the return on investment of the equipment....how long after purchase will you make PROFIT dollar #1. More equipment means: >>> More production space needed >>> More labor...you or someone else has to run the equipment >>> More maintenance... both in time and $ >>> More raw material costs >>> More material waste...not all jobs print like you imagined >>> More time not selling & fulfilling Although you will improve job turn-around time with in-house equipment, you will lose your own personal time. Is it worth it? Will the home produced product be of the quality you are currently receiving?
  12. I need to vent! I made a two sided 2' x 3' coroplast sign to encourage residents & passersby in this corona virus pandemic. I put it out in front of our business yesterday at 2 PM and it was stolen during the night! REALLY PEOPLE???? Hard to believe someone would be so crass as to steal this attitude lifter. So, now I am printing window signs that will be mounted inside . . . it's not the same visually but it will have to do...I don't have extra cash to waste on another outside sign. Sue2
