Everyone knows how much I love lace tights and sheer tights with opaque details so naturally I think these in either color they’re available in would be perfect. Other than a simple floral design like that, the best I could think of for someone who doesn’t like heavily printed legwear would be plain navy, cream, or dusty pink tights or socks.
The other day I got a question asking where shops like Holley Tea Time and Ophanim get their tights printed and I wasn’t able to get a direct answer but now I have fanmail from Holley Tea Time telling me all about it! So for those of you who were curious, here’s what she said.
“Hello I read your post recently on that ask. I’m so sorry I get lots of emails and sometimes I never get to some emails and it gets lost in the sea of emails I have so sorry. I get my tights printed here :)http://www.digitalartwear.com/
They are a printing manufacture in the united states. They are located in miami florida. The owner is very nice his name is Neal. I have ordered many times and most of the time my order comes perfect but sometimes I have flaws in some of my orders. They don’t do so well on quality control. I order 24 or 48 pieces and sometimes one is un-sell-able. All the tights are a ready made garment and where the fabric folds when its sublimated printed the print gets voids near the crotch area. This is normal for most sublimation printing where the item is a ready made garment. I have been using them for the past 3 years and each year they have increased the price on the tights. These are a list of shops that use the same manufacturing as I do for the tights / over the knee socks :)http://www.heychickadee.com/ ,http://shop.milkbbi.com/ ,https://www.facebook.com/sugarjunkieshop ,http://www.storenvy.com/stores/18177-ophanim ,http://www.storenvy.com/stores/76695-rawrtiger ,http://www.storenvy.com/stores/51726-hypnotic-sweet-treats ,http://kawaiigoods.storenvy.com/,http://www.storenvy.com/stores/177984-sheepies-nest , there are a couple other shops but I forgot the shops. I have been looking also for a new tights manufacturing over the years but I still have now luck. I also found a Korean sublimation manufacturing in Los Angeles but ask for 5,000+ pieces on a project. The digital art wear is the place I have seen that makes custom printed tights at the lowest quantity. Hope this helps :) “
