Focused Sales with Tai Chi and Kung Fu Artwork Iron On Transfers

When choosing what new artwork we add into iron on transfer each week, we draw from suggestions from our customers. This week we are featuring the suggestion of Tai Chi and Kung Fu artwork. This helps our customers get the artwork they need to create custom t-shirt designs with pricing and speed. Another benefit is the suggestions we receive show us what kinds of orders our customers are fulfilling. We love these insights because it helps us help our customers create unique t-shirt designs and maximize profits using Easy View.

Our new Tai Chi layout is perfect as a logo or, with a little customization, a fashion lifestyle design. While reading up on the practice of Tai Chi, we found this article. Sure enough, it mentions someone wearing a “Peace, Love, Tai Chi” t-shirt in the second sentence! And don’t forget, you can also customize with stickers, window decals and static clings.

In addition to a new layout, we’ve added Tai Chi clip art. Use them in any t-shirt design template or as a start to build your own design from scratch. Aside from the brushed yin yang symbol featured in the layout, there is also varitey of people in Tai Chi poses.

Which T-Shirt Printing Method is Right for You? Screen Printing? Heat Transfer?Direct-To-Garment?

In this day in age, there are three popular methods for printing onto t-shirts. Each method has its pros and cons, and will partially depend on how much time you want to invest into the product creation, as well as the printing partner you choose.

Below, I have outlined all three print methods to give you a better understanding of each process.

Screen Printing

Pros:

Cost effective for large batches.
Volume discounts.

Cons:
Not cost effective for multiple colors.
Can only print simple images and designs.

Heat Transfer

Pros:
You can “print” each shirt on demand.

Cons:
Lower quality and less durable than direct-to-garment and screen printing.
Large upfront investment into a heat press machine (Few hundred dollars to a few thousand dollars).
Do-it-yourself approach means additional time input from yourself.

Direct-To-Garment (DTG)

Pros:
Unlimited color options.
High detail accuracy in printed design.
Great for small orders or one-offs.
No set-up costs.

Cons:
Not cost effective for large production runs.
Generally no volume discounts.
