    Hi guys,

    Can anyone recommend a good eco t-shirt printing company please? I'm interested in Fairtrade, organic cotton, bamboo, hemp and so on. And also any eco points regarding the actual print process is a bonus.

    Ta very much,
    Phil

    whilst it is international, they are one of the best for shirt printing solutions.

    In the uk,

    T-Shirts â?? Your Custom Designed T Shirt printed to order

    or

    Monster Press - screen printing | MySpace

    and ask them first about organic/fair trade shirts, however I am not sure about eco priniting. I think the only eco printing would be discharge and I don't know of a UK discharge printer.

    Fruit of the Loom and Gildan (I think) have an organic shirt.

    American Apparel are the benchmark for fairtrade/staff treatment, monster press stock AA, but only print with plastisol, which I have no idea about the eco side.

    Also,

    http://www.monsterscreenprints.com/

    their work is amazing.

    Other alternative is source the shirts yourself, I'd look into where howies get their shirts from, and then talk to a local printer. Bit of a minefield, as to get the balance of an eco produced product along with quality printing, is going to be difficult.

    It depends whether you are doing this for a clothing line or something else.

    That help?
