> Good point, but many processes nowadays will not print the color white. 
> It won't cover.  That is the reason for white shirts. For small runs, a

> know the correct name for it). It is applied in a heated press, like a big 
> flat iron and for good color transfer, there must be polyester in the

> requires an initial screen outlay and then only through volume can the 
> price be gotten down to a reasonable amount.
