; )Common Questions

Every project is unique, and we love that about screen printing.
Here are some questions we hear often.

Our standard turnaround time is 6-8 business days from the time artwork, shirt styles and quantities have been approved. If you need it sooner than this timeframe we can work within reason to have your project completed when you need it, however a rush fee may apply.

We can source and print a variety of garments and items, including but not limited to: t-shirts, tanks, sweatshirts, hoodies, totes and koozies. Not everything is screen printable, but we are happy to answer any questions about specific items or substrates.

While we don’t actually have order minimums, screen printing is not an efficient process for small runs. We understand that our pricing is high for a single shirt, but it is the best price we are able to offer at this time. If you need less than 12 shirts, we suggest finding a shop that does Direct To Garment Printing. If you really need us to make a single shirt, we certainly can, but it is expensive.

Screen printing is a very efficient process for larger orders, and we do not have order maximums.

We have price breaks at 12, 24, 50, 100, 200, and 500 pieces. If you want more than 500 shirts, please send us an email and we will work up a custom quote for you.

Price breaks only apply to items that have the same design and ink color. If you need 50 shirts with Design A and 50 shirts with Design B, it is priced as two 50-piece jobs, not one 100-piece job.

As long as the design and the ink colors are the same, you can mix and match garments and garment colors.

Unfortunately, we cannot print a full color photograph onto a shirt. We are able to drop some photos to a black and white halftone, and then print that. The resulting print is different, but it’s a good option that usually ends up looking pretty cool.

Another great option for a full-color print is a CMYK Process Print. However, due to it’s complexity, we have an order minimum of 100 garments for the CMYK process.

Of course! There are artwork minimum requirements, which is primarily 300 DPI and color-separated layers. If you know what those terms mean, your artwork will probably be pretty close to what we need. Upload your artwork and a Project Manager will (nicely and politely) let you know if there are any issues, and what needs to happen to resolve those issues.

You bet! As long as you have a solid, tangible idea of what you are looking for, we love creating custom designs for our clients. However, “just make something funny” or “make me something cool” are usually recipes for frustration by both parties. If you need us to create a design for you, make sure to include as many details as possible in the “Notes” section when requesting a quote.

We typically charge $40/hour for t-shirt artwork, and most designs take about an hour to complete.

If you have placed an order with us in the past, we USUALLY have your design on file. However, occasionally artwork is purged from our archives.

Reorder pricing may change from your original pricing, depending on current garment price and quantities.

We can certainly print on kids shirts! We often get request to add a few kids shirts onto a larger order. We are always happy to do this, but remember that with screen printing, the stencil stays the same size, which means that a design that works for a XXL shirt might not fit onto a kids shirt. Most of the time we address it on a case-by-case basis. Feel free to send us an email if you have additional questions.

You bet. If your order is more complex than any of the examples on this site, please reach out. Depending on the situation, we usually can accommodate complex requests.

We discourage this. There is always a slight chance that a print will go differently than expected. By purchasing through our suppliers, we can ensure that if something is to go wrong, we can replace the necessary items. However, there are always special situations where we need to print on something that is provided by a client. Feel free to reach out and let us know what you need, we’ll see what we can do.

You can either pay in person with a credit card or check when you pick up, or we will send you a link with your e-invoice for payment over the internet.

Once your order is done, you will receive a notice. You can pick up any time during business hours or set up a special appointment after hours or on the weekend. We also can ship the shirts if needed.
