How can I remove the white under base from an object when opened in photoshop? I want to use this image for print and do not want a background to appear on the printed garment.

    Now it the place to contact the printer and ask the proper Image format. If you print in CMYK, white means = no ink. Generally PNG isn't accepted for CMYK printing, because it doesn't support CMYK colors, but many print houses and nearly all home and office printing machines have started to accept 24 bit PNGs and other RGB files because consumers and usual workers generally have no CMYK aware software. If you already have an order to make the background transparent, you should show your image at least as screenshot, because the working method depends on image content.
