As you know, I also work in my own screenprinting atelier and we have recently expanded our activities. We do screen print but only if the order is big. Due to our localization, we just get big orders about 4 or 5 times a year and all other orders are for small groups and we couldn’t compete with the prices of other ateliers, so we thought the best thing was to start working with other printing techniques.
After testing the new machines we bought, here are the first results of our brand new transfer technique. It allows us to print any drawing or picture even on a black t-shirt because we can print color white! I didn’t realize how awesome it is till we tried 😀
I’ve begun to print some of my illustrations as a test, here you have some pictures of the process and the result.

The building were first sketched in paper and scanned:
