    Im looking for names/ websites of companies who make personalized T-shirts and hats with company names and or logos.

    I have tried Wearguard but they do not have the correct color combo's I need. Plus their set-up charges are high for the quantity of items a one man operation might purchase.

    Any other names would be greatly appreciated.

    get your hats and stuff from weargaurd and go to a local embroidery shop for your logo's look in the yellow pages

    I have used NEBS before and they did a good job. I have also used local emroidery and screen printing companies. Nice thing about the local shop is you can actually talk with someone face to face.

    Try local, I got nice Hanes t-shirts for $10/piece that were screen printed. Not bad if you ask me.

    Along with our lawn care, I do tee-shirt and uniform design. What are you looking for?

    I would check with several local shops and see if there was any bartering to be done. Both could win.:D

    Green is HOT~!

    Been there! Used to have JD green shirts with yellow letters. Switched to a light tan with hunter green letters.

    Check with local shops. Look for shops that do local Little League/Soccer shirts and stuff. These days with computers and such, setups are much cheaper. You would normally need to order at least 12-24 shirts as a minimum though. Nice to have a lot! They don't wear out as quick!

    Thanks TLS,

    I checked local today and already placed an order. It was much easier to see, and touch the product before buying (unlike online).

    I bought 5 Tee's and 1 nice 3 season hooded jacket all for $105.00
    The set-up fee was $20.00 for the jacket and $20.00 for the shirts. The $20.00 included taking a photo of my logo and converting it to a useful image, which will be screen printed to the shirts. I only did print on one side but if I did the back it would have been $20.00 per side for one color printing (no matter how many lines or how big the logo).

    Against your advice I went with Hunter Green shirts and Yellow lettering. I guess I will pay for it but I really like those colors.
