Starting a t-shirt printing business is easy in the Philippines because it could be relatively low cost. Of course the cost depends on offered services, production capacities, machine qualities(brand names) etc. But I'd like to show the lowest costs for a few types of business. The prices are ball park estimates and they don't represent any specific items or packages. And we do not sell these.

  1. Heat Transfer Business
    • Cost: Php 40,000
    • Included Machines: Computer, Printer(pigment ink), Heat Press(A4 size)
    • Service Items: T-shirts and clothing, Cotton bags and other heat resistant flat fabrics.
    • This is the minimum investment case. It only offers heat press of heat transfer paper.
  2. Heat Transfer & Sign Making Business
    • Cost: Php 90,000
    • Included Machines: Computer, Printer(pigment ink), Printer(sublimation ink), Heat Press(A3 size), Heat Press for Mugs, Heat Press for Hats, Vinyl Cutter
    • Service Items: T-shirts and clothing, bags, mugs, hats, window signs/stickers etc.
    • This is more versatile and does all heat applications and even sign making.
  3. Silk Screen & Heat Transfer/Sign Making
    • Cost: Php 150,000
    • Included Machines: Silk Screen Line Table Press(6 platens) or Rotary Press(6 color 6 platen), Flash Dryer, Exposure unit, Frames/Squeegees and other tools, Computer, Printer(pigment ink), Printer(sublimation ink), Heat Press(A3 size), Heat Press for Mugs, Heat Press for Hats, Vinyl Cutter
    • Service Items: T-shirts and clothing, bags, mugs, hats, window signs/stickers etc.
    • You will be able to do mass production using silk screen method plus all heat press applications and sign making.
  4. Embroidery, Silk Screen, Heat Transfer/Sign Making
    • Cost: Php 300,000 - Php 1,000,000
    • Included Machines: Embroidery Machine, Silk Screen Press Machine, Flash Dryer, Exposure unit, Frames/Squeegees and other tools, Computer, Printer(pigment ink), Printer(sublimation ink), Heat Press(A3 size), Heat Press for Mugs, Heat Press for Hats, Vinyl Cutter
    • Service Items: T-shirts and clothing, bags, mugs, hats, window signs/stickers etc.
    • You will be able to almost all of garment decorations.

 

Again, the prices are for reference purpose only. In reality, these prices can fluctuate greatly depending on where you buy and what kind of specifications you want from the machines. Also, you must consider about 10% of the cost for material, supplies and sample making. Because this post is about economical way of starting t-shirt printing business, DTG(Direct To Garment) printing and wide format tarpaulin/solvent printing was not included. Please remember that these are production equipment costs only. There are other operational costs like rent, legal fees, interior and furniture, computer programs, marketing expenses, utilities, wages...... .... .....

Hello! I have been in t-shirt printing for about 7 years. But I am not an expert t-shirt printer. I just want to share my experience and to learn from other printers. T-shirt printing in the Philippines is a good business because people like to wear graphic shirts. But printing resources are limited and rather expensive. I hope this website can help members to stay more competitive.
