Help! I have a screen printing question!
We have answers…
WHAT FORMAT DO I SEND YOU MY ARTWORK?
We prefer to work with adobe illustrator (.ai) or photoshop (.psd) with a min. 300dpi. The better quality the image the better quality screen we are able to burn. A good rule of thumb is to send us the artwork in the same dimensions that you would like it printed on the shirt.
We can work with just about anything but your art fee may go up if the file is not vectorized. We can accept basically any digital format, including but not limited to: Portable Document Format (Pdf); Photo File (.jpg or.jpeg); Encapsulated Post Script (.eps); .tiff; .png; or even a hand drawn image that is scanned in and emailed to us.
Illustrator (.ai); Photoshop (.psd); Photo File (.jpg); Encapsulated Post Script (.eps); Portable Document Format (.pdf).
If you can think up a t shirt design, we can screen print it and make the custom shirt design of your dreams!
I DON’T HAVE ANY ARTWORK… CAN YOU DESIGN SOMETHING FOR ME?
Of course! You can sit down with one of our master artists. The cost is $60 per hour for shirt design. Simple art work may cost $10-15 or multi layered and detail can be anywhere from $150-300. A flat fee of $300 for logo design.
WILL I GET A PROOF?
Most definitely! If you are placing an order of 12 or more you will receive a digital proof and you are required to sign it and either e-mail, scan, or fax it back.
HOW CAN I REDUCE THE COST OF MY CUSTOM SHIRTS OR CUSTOM HOODIES?
The more shirts you order, the lower the cost to print the shirts. In addition, each color requires an additional screen so you can reduce your screen fees and printing costs by limiting your colors.
CAN I BRING IN MY OWN SHIRTS?
For vinyl imprints… Absolutely!
For screen printing… Usually not but we have been known to make a few exceptions. We cannot guarantee our work when someone brings in their own clothing and if we mess up, we can’t replace it. Also, we charge you for the cost to print the items, we don’t mark up the shirt price, so in the end the client usually ends up paying more than if we would have just supplied the item.
CAN YOU PRINT CUSTOM TAGS FOR OUR SHIRTS?
Of course, but it will cost ya
HOW MANY COLOR CAN YOU PRINT ON A SHIRT?
We print up to 8 color prints and after that we offer full color options for photos and other designs.
DO I HAVE TO PAY SET UP FEES EVERY TIME?
No. We will reprint any design within 6 months of your purchase date with no set-up charges as long as it is the same design and there are NO alterations to the artwork.
Art fees and embroidery fees are usually one time fees unless you alter the design.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO COMPLETE MY ORDER?
Vinyl Imprints, Decals, and Stickers if the art work is complete can be done in 1-3 days.
Screen printing, embroidery, and promotional products take 10-21 days from the time the deposit is paid, if we anticipate it to take any longer we will let you know in advance. We guarantee all orders in 3 weeks.
I FORGOT TO ORDER 300 SHIRTS FOR A CONFERENCE NEXT WEEK, CAN YOU DO IT?
Yep! but it’ll cost ya. We charge an additional rush charge depending on how fast you need it. If you are in a rush, stop reading the FAQ page and wasting time… and give us call or send us an e-mail! We will make it work for you.
WHAT ARE YOUR MINIMUMS?
We can do everything from 1 shirt to 1,000. We use different printing techniques such as vinyl imprints for lower quantities and screen printing for all orders over 12 items per color.
Embroidery is a minimum of 12 pieces because of the time it takes to set everything up.
We are not just a screen printing business, let us help you with your complete package! Stickers, decals, banners, and signs have no minimum but it is more cost effective the more you order.
