No Comments


This Blog was brought to you by the San Antonio T Shirt Printing from Coremediaworld

I took a picture of a design that I wanted. Can you design and print it on a shirt?

Yes. After receiving the pictures at my email address, I will email back to confirm whether printing your pictures/designs onto shirts is possible. Your first order will be under Your Artwork price because it will require a graphic design fee.

Why are your artwork’s pricing and turnaround times different from our design?

Our artworks are readily available in customizable designs. PERSONAL artworks for screen printing need to be redrawn; hence more time-consuming and price sensitive. There is also digital transfer wherein the number of colors and type of design required do not affect the cost.

Can you provide a sample print of our design before printing the whole order?

As much as we want to accommodate sample printing, the best we can do is to show you a sample print on one of our stock designs.

Do you accept rush orders?

Yes, we can accommodate rush orders for a minimum additional charge of $40 on printing costs. Additional express shipping fees are on the blank apparel ordered from wholesale blank apparel companies. Additional costs depend on order quantities and the number of days needed. Turn around time starts when we have confirmed the order.

What is the maximum size of an image you can print on shirts?

13 inches by 15 inches.

Can we provide you with the shirts and you do the printing?

Yes. You could mail us your shirts. We charge an additional 20% of the printing price.

Do you accept returns and refunds?

Generally, we cannot accept returns and refunds anymore because we cannot resell them. If a mistake is made on our part, we will reprint the products. If a mistake is made on the customer’s side, we cannot accept returns or refunds.

Can you match the colors of the design that I will send you?

Color matching cannot be guaranteed 100% on screen and digital printing. If you cannot select your colors, we will do our best to match the colors based on the information provided (digital art files, etc). See our lists of colors for our screen printing.

Can you print copyright designs?

You represent and warrant that you have the right to use all designs (including text) that you provide to us to decorate merchandise (Designs. ) You agree to indemnify us and hold us harmless for, from, and against all claims of third parties related to claims related to the Designs and our placement of the Designs on merchandise, including but not limited to claims of infringement, defamation or slander.

What are your Art Guidelines for sending us your artwork?

It would be a faster transaction if you could provide us with these are Art Guidelines. If you are not sure whether your artwork is in the correct format, just send it to us within these hours (7 am-330pm CST) and we will reply to you in minutes.

Which type of printing offers a better quality of the print? Screen Printing or Digital Printing?

Screen printing is the most common type of t-shirt printing because it offers a better quality of print and offers a more affordable price on big quantities with few colors.

Nine Patch Quilt Block – How to Make and How to Use

A nine patch quilt block is just about the easiest block you can make. It also has the benefit of being one of the most versatile. So, what is it and how can you use it to turn your scraps into something beautiful? Let’s find out.

What Is It?

It’s really very simple. A nine patch quilt block is made up of nine parts. These can be the same size or not. What makes the block is the contrast in values between the sections.

They will usually have light and dark value. Now, these nine sections can have all the same color like when you’re quilting a basic Irish Chain or they can have a variety of colors like the Puss in Boots block.

How to Make It

Strip Piecing is your best bet. For a standard 9 patch if you want a 6-inch block, you’ll need to cut out 3 – 2.5 inch strips of your dark or bright fabrics and 3 – 2.5 inch strips of your light fabric. Create 2 strip sets:

Dark-Light-Dark and Light-Dark-Light

Cut the strip sets 2.5-inches times the width of the fabric. Sew them in sets of the following ways to create your block:



Dark-Light –Dark

How to Use it:

Alternate with plain blocks

As mentioned above, you can create a basic Irish chain quilt. That is if you alternate it with a block of the background fabric. The main color pop and it looks like there’s a chain. Another option is just to alternate the block with a plain block of the same size.

Alternate with Half-Square Triangles

This is something really simple that can pack a punch. First, look in your stash to see what you have a lot of. It should be a dark color and a light color. Make half-square triangle blocks. Then make 9 patch quilt blocks that coordinate with these colors. It works best if they fall between the color ranges and are in the same color family. By the same family I mean brights, country colors, Civil War reproductions, that kind of thing.

You do not need the same fabric line, but you do need the same color family. You will notice that you gravitate toward a certain type of fabric and this will not be a problem.

How many people in your town wear t-shirts

How many people in your town wear t-shirts? Hundreds? Thousands? Millions? EVERYBODY? T-shirts are probably the most popular item of clothing in the world, and this has to be because of these sheer variety of styles and designs. When somebody sees a t-shirt they like, they buy it! But what if you could decide have anything you like printed onto a t-shirt? Wouldn’t that be cool? Well, a lot of people agree that personalised clothing is a very cool thing to have – but it’s so difficult to find a store where you can get your own personalised clothing!Core Media San Antonio

It’s this very thought that inspired me to start my own t-shirt printing shop in Worcester, England. At my shop here my staff and I print t-shirts, hoodies and sweaters for all types of customers. They come in, tell us what they want, and we design and print it for them right there and then. They love it because what they are buying is completely unique, and we love it because it’s incredibly satisfying to see our customers leave with a smile on their face. But more importantly than this, it makes MONEY, and it’s SO EASY!

Here’s how I do it…
When I started out, I bought some very cheap t-shirt printing equipment on eBay. All I had was a vinyl cutter, a heat press, and a few blank t-shirts. I created a few designs, built a free website and used Paypal to accept payments. Within days I had sold my first t-shirt. On my website I was also offering a “create your own t-shirt” service where people could have any message they wanted printed onto a t-shirt – this is the side of the business that really took off.

Vinyl cutter for creating designs to print onto t-shirts

Popularity grew as people shared links to my site on Facebook, and I quickly realised how I could make much more money by having a real shop. With the huge global economic downturn you would think that it would make things difficult, but in fact it meant that there were many vacant shops available in my town with very low rent. I already knew I could provide a service that would be in great demand – I just needed somewhere to trade from. It didn’t take long to find a small unit in an indoor market, and now I make a full time living doing this. I also employ 2 full time staff.

The market for this service is huge. There are just SO MANY different kinds of people out there who love getting t-shirts printed with their own design. And it doesn’t end there. Just think of all the small business in your town who wear uniforms printed with their business name or logo.core media

It looks professional and helps to advertise their services. There are lots of tradesmen out there who haven’t got custom printed workwear, maybe because they didn’t know where to get this service. All it takes is for you to spread the word using business cards and flyers, and before you know it these guys will be coming to you to get their workwear printed.

I also regularly print t-shirts for

Bands & Musicians
Clubs & Societies
Schools, colleges, univerities etc.
Stag nights & hen parties (Bachelor parties/hen showers)
The variety of different types of customer is HUGE, and although there is competition in my town, I still get a good share of the market. I do this by making sure my staff and I work hard to spread the word about what we do, and also by keeping a close eye on the quality of our work.
