Screen Printing is a good economic choice for a high-quality print, bright colors, on multiple shirts.
One or more colors:
For each color in the design, a separate screen is needed.
1-color printing costs less then multi-colors.
NO Screen/Set-up Charges:
1-color printing - 12 shirts minimum
2-color printing - 24 shirts minimum (suggested!)
3-color printing - 36 shirts minimum (suggested!)
4-color printing - 48 shirts minimum (suggested!)
Screen/Set-up charges apply:
ONLY if you have less than the minimum of 12 shirts:
$35 for the 'screen' (included set/up, film, screen).
The more you order, the better your price will be per shirt.
Larger sizes cost more:
XXL (2X) and larger sizes are $2.00 more each
Cotton / Polyester / 50/50:
100% cotton, 100% polyester, dri-fit, moisture management, moisture wicking... or a 50/50 blend is your choice.
We assist with artwork, design, adding text etc. (see also Bus.Cards/Art/Logos/Design) after you place an order....
We often don't charge for artwork unless it's very involved and takes time to get ready.
When color-separations are needed, or more time will be spent on getting the graphics
ready, there will be a charge for time spend in getting the artwork ready (we will let you know in advance!!)
Vector files are preferred if we have a choice!!
Pockets cost more
Shirts with a pocket are $2.00 more.
Color of shirt - price difference
Colored shirts cost more than white shirts.
Printing on dark shirts (with light ink) often needs a second layer of ink (or a white underlayer), so the cost is a little higher.
Front and/or back
Print on front (full or pocket area), back, sleeve. There are endless possibilities that we can print on. Each area is a separate location/separate print.
NO Rush-jobs - unless we have the time
Orders take about 10 (-15) working days (count roughly 2 weeks, worst case 3 weeks). There are times that we can squeeze another job in there. Great, you got lucky!! But we ask that you plan ahead, to give us enough time, and to be sure we can complete it when you need to have it in hand.
Q: How does it work?
The image is printed in black on transparancy film. Each color on the shirt requires a different film.
The transparancy film is used to burn the image into a screen.
Ink is then pushed through the screen with a squeegee onto the shirt and creates the print (white in this example on a black shirt; then red was printed over white using a different screen).
