    Here is a design of a shirt I am making. Give me some opinions. Tell me what I need to change or make better. The phone number will be my number when I create the shirt. This is my first year into mowing. I am making the shirt at customink.com but they are going to cost almost $23 a shirt and if I put a front chest logo it is going to cost about $28, so as of right now I am just doing the back of the shirt. Does anyone else know of a cheaper site?

    I think the design looks pretty good, but I hope that the shirt color isn't going to be black!?

    Seems a little pricey for screen printed shirts. I don't have any other sources though. I have a friend that ordered custom logo shirts too but I don't recall where from. His just have the logo on the front chest.

    Try queensboro.com there a whole lot cheaper than what your looking at. $23 dollars a shirt for t-shirts is online robbery.

    That looks great. Does seem a little high on price. Its only a 3 color. I get hoodies for that price. See about buying the shirts somewhere else and having them print them. Mabey they are getting a huge markup on the shirt itself.

    I just asked my friend, he used vistaprint but says he actually doesn't like them... Don't know the reason why though. Said he will just use someone local next time.

    I have to agree with the local options. Yes it may cost a little more than the cheap places online but you can actually put your hands on the clothing first. T-shirts are sized all over the place and if you are picky about fit (as I am) being able to try out what you want may be the best option.

    I really want the polyester "dry" shirts with my logo on them. That's what I wear pretty much all summer. If the temps are over 80 especially. I can't stand cotton in the heat, may as well be wearing plastic.

    Try the web site i gave you. I think you may change your mind once you see what they have to offer. Plus they are in N.C. a whole lot closer to you than me. If you have questions call them and talk to Adair shes a great person and this is the only place i do business with for all my work apparel. www.queensboro.com

    Thanks. Yea I am not sure about a color yet. I am still debating. I want something that is not going to get dirty too quick but also stay cool.

    Thanks I will give their site a look over. Yea I thought the price was a little high but I have not done much surfing.

    Is there anything I should add to the shirts or is that about all you really need a shirt to say?

    You should be able to get that shirt for about $9-$12 (including screen charges)...well...maybe not if you're ordering only a few shirts and you are ordering black (most expensive color).

    yep i agree with the other guys, way too much per shirt. call a few local screen printers near you adn go from there. you may just pickup a customer while your there. cant hurt good luck 9 - 12 bucks is agood estimate.
