Best t shirt screen printing machine
Full disclosure, I'm the founder of Vacord Screen Printing .
We focus on quality, and specialize in discharge ink, which is the softest way to print a shirt, as it removes the shirt's dye and replaces it, as opposed to putting a thick layer of ink on top of the shirt. Sites that let you design and order online usually still use traditional plastic ink because it can be used pretty universally on any shirt color. This makes the printing less complicated but won't give you as nice of a result at all.
Like a lot of shirt printers, we offer American Apparel. There are other very nice and affordable options, if American Apparel is too pricey. For more bang for the buck when ordering, consider other nice ringspun shirts, like an Anvil 980.
Keep in mind that screen printing is priced on volume (if a shop doesn't price on volume, they are either not really doing screen printing, or they don't know what they are doing with their business). Our minimum is 24 pieces, which is pretty common. Some shops have minimums as low as 12, some have minimums as high as 72.
