It's possible yes but, a whole host of variables make it very difficult.

Probably best to go with sim process or DTG.

Do you have any experience printing this level of detail?

Number of heads/flashes on your press, etc?

Yea, (you can),  but it more than likely won't come out (as good). Survey say....NO! but it's possible for some of the better printers (not knowing anything about how you print). That's not a dig at you, I'm being literal. I know nothing about ow you print.

Like the fellers said. You'd have to A, know how to do it already...or be familiar with sim process and controlling the ink...or, go with DTG.  DTG is more than likely going to give you THE BEST look.  Even screen printed, you are going to have to put down a good solid smooth white base. May as well do contract DTG unless the quantity is like 300 shirts or more.

Anyone here do contract DTG on colors?

Hi All

Thank for reply :) I am sorry but I use google translate to write this.

Colin, no am not a expert for print process, I do a sample 4 color process for me 15 year pass,

Dottonedan, Its so much of a year that I follow you but I'm not of the kind a lot speak, I read more than speak.
I am not skilled in process, I am more with print color and weft.
My journey is simple, its 25 years that I print on any kind of piece on pad printing, silk screen and now I am lucky that to leave in the clothes, I have a local of 3800 ', with a 8 / 10 M & R guntlet gt 8 and a anatol Titan 7/8, I think it's good for a start, forget not I have a lot studying in clothes and I know I'm skilled enough to leave.

I will not print this job because am not a expert on process,
thank all

It looks like whatever he's using to translate doesn't do a particularly good job, I wonder what he sees on the other end when it translates the English to his language. He has the equipment, is there a group where he is that might help him out?

He probably sees what we hear when we listen to adults on Charlie Brown movies.
