Hi all, our office is not open today, 24th of July. Our normal business operating hours (9.30am – 630pm) will resume tomorrow, 25th of July. We are currently working on something and can’t wait to share the joy with you awesome people. We apologize for any inconvenience caused and we’ll see you soon!

If you are looking for the best t-shirt printer in Singapore, you are at the right page as we are going to share tips and guide to choosing the right t-shirt printer for your every printing need.

Tip 1:  Research the credibility of the company. Not everything is about price.

Before you print with a t-shirt printing company, you are advised to do a research on the credibility of the company. This is important as there are many t-shirt printers in Singapore ranging from really experienced companies to newcomers. Emailing all the t-shirt printers you find on Google search and choosing the one that quotes the cheapest price might not necessarily guarantee good quality and service.

We, at Ministry of Print, have been in the t-shirt printing industry for many years and have a wide Facebook fan base of more than 2, 500 people. But of course, having many Facebook likes does not necessarily mean the t-shirt company you have chanced upon is popular among many. There are t-shirt printers who have purchased Facebook likes and do not garner genuine likes from their audience. Our likes, are built up over the few years we joined Facebook, and are painstakingly earned from our good service and reputation.

Additionally, we have printed T-shirts for numerous prestigious companies such as Disney, Garena, and JTC, etc. Our long list of clientele is testament to our reliability and impeccable service.

Tip 2:  Get a t-shirt printer that make your t-shirt design suitable for t-shirt printing. Ask them how your t-shirt design is used to print your t-shirt.

Sometimes you may have a design that is drawn or some idea/image you have gotten online, which you need a t-shirt printer to put it in place. However, most of the t-shirt printers do not hire graphic designer as it is expensive to get one just to do editing work.

At Ministry of Print, we have our very own in-house t-shirt designer just to cater to your t-shirt artwork needs. Whether it is hand-drawn or low resolution design, our MOP designer can edit your design to facilitate the t-shirt printing process. Furthermore, our designer will provide you a design proposal before we print your t-shirt so you are always assured that your t-shirt will be printed exactly to your requirements. All these are free of charge as long as you print with us! As our slogan says, we strive to make you look awesome!

We hope these guide and tips will help you to make an informed choice while choosing a good t-shirt printer.

Natural printing is one of the simple ways you can print your t-shirt. Unlike most t-shirt printing methods, it uses materials from nature such as leaves as such it preserve the ephemeral beauty of nature. This form of art goes all the way back from Leonardo Da Vinci who perhaps inspired by fossils.

Besides being inexpensive, natural printing has limitless possibilities. Its print can be created by putting paint on nature material such as flower, vegetable, leaves. Here in this tutorial, we are applying the prints onto a t-shirt.

Material required:

  1. Leaves or any other nature materials that have a texture
  2. Bath towels
  3. Newspaper & newsprint
  4. Assorted Fabric paint
  5. Cotton T-Shirt
  6. Straight Pins
  7. Hand Roller
  8. Sponge Brush
  9. Iron

Step 1: Create a work space preferable on a flat table and cover it with newspaper. Lay the printing surface with a layer of bath towels.

Step 2: Place the cotton t-shirt on the towel and secure it with pins

Step 3: Select the nature material that you want to use for your t-shirt eg. Leaf

Step 4: Apply a few thin layer of fabric paint on the leaf

Step 5: Carefully put the leaf with its painted side facing down onto the t-shirt. Cover the leaf with piece of newsprint and use a Hand roller to roll over it gently. Remove the newsprint.

Step 6: Slowly lift the leaf and check the design. Repeat this process until design is complete. Let the paint dry.

Step 7: Cover the design with a piece of cloth and iron the t-shirt to allow the paint to set. Let it dry for 2 days before putting it for a wash
