that's about it... hehe.. in addition, the number of colors sa image mo ganon den yung dami ng screens 1 for each color so medyo madugo pag sobrang dami ng colors ng image.. a flat sturdy area to do the printing... and a board with guide (optional) para pantay lagi yung print...

hello raffyiel,

you can use PHOTO EMULSION instead of GREEN FILM to lay-out your pattern.  This is much easier.  by green film, you cut your lay-out manually.  using photo emulsion, you use the lay-out that you print on a transparrency using a laser printer (or photocopying machine), dry it on UV light (like sunlight, or halogen lamp), and rinse it with pressurized water.

for supplies, you can go to J&J Virgo Sales, 977 Recto Avenue, tel. no. 2520764, 2521062.

i would love to discuss the process to you, but it will be too long to post it here.  Note: i said too long, not too hard. :)

you can check out www.ehow.com to get a basic knowledge on how it is done.  then you can ask me about things that you might get confused.  i am not an expert in this, BTW.  but i've done some silkscreen printing in the past. :)

Hi,

Kung hindi ako nagkakamali, at kung yun pa din ang store since na napagbilhan ko sya ng supply dati (mga 8-10 years ago ata), Yan yung Tulco. Supplier/store talaga yun ng pang-silkscreen printing matagal na. Meron din dito sa QC, S.F.del Monte, along D. Tuazon, katatayo/open pa lang (mga 5 months ago na ata), nadadaanan ko kasi pag commute ko sa work. But I guess mas mura kung dun ka bibili sa maraming stores magkakatabi dahil sa kumpetisyon, magbababa sila ng prices. Sa national bookstore kasi, medyo mahal, pero kung pang-hobby lang naman, pwedeng dun ka muna bumili.

This is a very good site na natagpuan ko, na naka-link naman sa entrepinoys atbpa. blog ni kuya Linusoft: silkscreenbiz.com. Nga pala punta ka rin dun sa blog nya meron din syang article about the topic.

Hope it helps.  :)

yep, kung hobby lang, pwede na sa nat'l bookstore.  pero kung pang biz, mas maganda kumuha sa mga suppliers talaga.  sa nat'l bookstore di masyado maganda mga silkcloth na makukuha mo don.  medyo makapal ang tela kaya pag mag-pi-print ka na, mahihirapan kang silipin kung saan naka-posisyon ang silkscreen mo. :)

raffyiel, better nga yan practice ka muna, wag mong madaliin, start with the easy ones then eventually try out yung mga complex.. lalo na yung pag timpla pa ng paint...

Raffyiel,

Try to visit this forum www.t-shirtforums.com. Dami ako natutunan sa site na to. I also learned there na hi-tech na ngayon ang t-shirt printings. All u need are PC, printer, correct ink (pigmented/dye sublimation), correct fabric (cotton / polyester), an iron or heat press and a good design. Yung mga designs mo, pwede mo itago sa PC then print-out na lang kung may o-order. Big advantage against screen printing na your screens will eat roomspace kapag hindi mo kailangan. Just my two cents :D

yep, you can do this, too.  the downside in this kind of printing is, you can not lower your price because the materials are costly, IIRC.  the paper that you have to print on using your printer is approximately P30 each, and you can use that only once (i dont know how much that kind of paper cost today).  so, if you have to print, for example, 100 tshirts, the paper alone will cost P3000 (assuming that you have to use the whole paper in one tshirt).  the advantage with this type of printing, though, is you can print in full color, even photographic images.

while with silkscreen, the overhead cost mainly comes from the set-up, and the set-up is not that costly either.  once you have the silkscreen ready, you can print as many as 300 or more tshirts with that silkscreen.  the only additional cost that will come out from printing that many tshirt is from the ink that you have to use, which is not that expensive.  and, of course, the cost of the tshirt, if you are the one providing it. :)
