I just went to my local sign/screen printing company. Now these aren't silkscreened but rather printed with a special ink jet printer. The nice thing is that there is no screen to set up. I can also order a variety of shirts easily and no minimum order. I am really happy with the finished product!! Cheers. Al

Did they print the design right on the shirt or was it a heat transfer?

The image gets printed right on the shirt. Actually it almost looks like the ink actually embeds itself into the actual fabric. That is something we really liked because sometimes a big silkscreen feels too "crunchy" and stiff. I know they heat treat them after printing to "set" the ink.

The shirt's printed with a fairly new technology call DTG, "direct to garment" printing. I have a shirt like this and they look and feel much better than a screen printed t-shirt. There are numerous websites on line that do this, however I have never seen a shirt that cheap! That company was a great find for you.

Sounds like a different name for what they call "digital sublimation" looks great, costs a little less then silk screen. Only downside has been less durability in the laundry

I'd say give half of the shirts away for free and sell the other half for $10. People will think you're a nice guy(which I'm sure you are anyways) for giving out a shirt, and then recommend people to your brewery. The other half of the people will think shelling out $10 for a shirt is dirt cheap, buy them, and you'll have lots of people promoting your brand.
If you bought 50 shirts at $10/per and give half away and sell the others for the $10, it basically cost you $250 for advertising. Can't think of any other advertising that's that cheap and will get you face to face with 50 potential clients.

Thanks for all the great input! So......18-20 bucks a shirt should be good? I figure people are getting 6 beers on tap and a nice shirt. I don't think 20 dollars is too much to ask.....not that they have to buy a shirt.
