What are the artwork requirements?
Artwork is a very important part of getting your shirt done just the way you want it. Great artwork = a great shirt.
There are many types of files we can work with, the files that will provide the best quality for printing are vector files.
Vector Files: Adobe Illustrator (.ai, .eps), Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
Also acceptable are high-resolution bitmap images. With these types of files, we recommend at least 300dpi.
Bitmap Files: Adobe Photoshop (.psd), JPEG Images (.jpeg), TIFF Images (.tif)
If you’re file doesn’t meet these requirements we can help. For a small charge, our designer can work with your image
to prepare it for printing.
What are your order minimums?
Please call to find out if there is minimum product or item you want printed. Some items that we print do have minimum order requirements due
to materials or apparels being printed on. We will let you know when we quote any printed item if there is a minimum order required for that product.
For most apparel items the minimum quantity is 24. For all other products we print such as signs, banners, or decals there is a minimum order required depending on the type of product
depending on the type of product it is. Promotional items such as pens, cups, mugs and Koozies will have minimum requirements based by product
usually between 72 and 144 pieces. When ordering screen printed items it’s important to keep in mind that the cost of printing goes down as the quantity goes up.
How much are your set up fees?
Set up fees vary depending on the job. On some orders there are no fees however if there are many colors and or if the
quantity is small there will be set-up fees added to the order which we let you know about
when the job is quoted.
What is your turnaround time?
Normal turnaround time on standard screen printed items is 7-10 business days + shipping time. This is an estimate, and
starts when the order is finalized. Some orders take longer to print and finish depending on the item, quantity, and
materials being used. You will be given an estimated delivery when the job is quoted. If you have a specific deadline,
please advise us as soon as possible. If a order is needed with a short turnaround time, rush order fees may apply.
Can I mix and match shirt styles?
Absolutely! As long as you are printing the same design on all of the apparel, you can mix and match the style of shirt.
For example, if you are printing a 1 color design on 24 pieces of apparel you can print on 8 t-shirts, 8 tanks and 8 hoodies.
How do I keep my price down?
- Prices per shirt go down as quantities go up, so increase your order to save money.
- The apparel you choose to print your image on will have an affect on your overall price. Apparel available ranges from economical to premium, so be sure to choose something within your budget.
- Try to keep the number of print locations low. Instead of printing something on the front AND back of the shirt, just choose one location.
- The number of colors being printed on your shirt greatly affects the price. If you’re printing a 6 color
image, but can get the same results with just 3 or 4, that will help decrease your final price.
