Please be environmentally responsible and humane


“Uzbek children. sometimes as young as seven, are drafted in as cheap or free labour during the cotton harvest” From White Gold - the True Cost of Cotton (A report by the Environmental Justice Foundation)

“Uzbek cotton is a state monopoly, relying on slave labour and the forced labour of hundreds of thousands of children working in appalling conditions for little, or often no pay.”
Craig Murray, Former British Ambassador to Uzbekistan.

The popular POD t-shirt company Spreadshirt has recently released DTG printing for their products. They will continue to offer plot printing and flex will still be the high quality option it has always been., this in my opinion makes them the most versatile, best printing company out their for running your own shirt shop

The Myth of Digital Printing.

I had a revelation the other day.

After hearing so much about the flexibility of digital printing I tried it out on the website.

Being a long time user and fan I had been experiencing a frustration with being unable to use flex and plot printing to deal with fine details.

I must say designing a t-shirt with a fine splatter effect and more than 3 colors was a liberating experience. But the process is not the fairy tale I'd been led to believe.

It works great on white, but printing on color has a tint problem, and using designs on dark and light apparel requires the creation and uploading of two different images.

I personally missed the ability to change the plot color of a design on the fly.

I would say despite it's promises it still falls quite short of plot printing.

Stick with spreadshirt the quality of the product and service is better.
