Screen Printing FAQ

Is there a minimum quantity required for screen printing?


The minimum requirements for screen printing are 1 color: 6 Shirts 2 color: 24 shirts 3 + colors: 36 shirts




How much does it cost?


All depends on a variety of things. The three major factors in pricing are 1. How many pieces total? 2. How many colors in the ink? 3. How many locations you want printed? (The front and back of the shirt is 2 locations)




What is the turnaround time?


Our standard turnaround time is 7-10 business days. Need them quicker? Let us know and we'll try our best to get you taken care of.




What is a screen setup fee?


In order to screen print shirts, we need to make a screen for each color, and then set the screen up on press. Each color in your artwork requires a screen. (4 color artwork = 4 screens). When we price, we include the cost of the screen setup in the price.




Can I bring my own shirts?


Sure thing. But unless your a licensed reseller, it won't save you much money. Check with us first to find out how much you'll save.




Do I get to see what they look like before I order?


Absolutely! Infact we don't put your job into production until the mockup / artwork is approved. Keep in mind that your mockup is a visual representation of your finished product. Colors may differ slightly once printed to the shirt. But all the print size/placement info will be intact.




What if I need to ruturn an order?


Since this is a custom screen printed order, we don't accept returns or refunds. However, if there is an issue, let us know and we'll do our best to get you taken care of.




How many colors can you print?


8 colors. But depending on your artwork, we may be able to use what's called a simulated process to achieve more than 8 colors OR reduce your color count to less overall.




How long does the print last?


In most cases, the print should outlast the shirt and should remain solid for a really long time.




Can I have the print/logo in different colors?


On orders of 100 or more we will honor 1 color swap (for instance: 100 shirts (50 Black with White print, 50 White with Black print). Anything under 100 pieces, we would bill the job as two separate jobs.





Artwork FAQ

What format do you accept?


Just about any. .PDF, .AI, .EPS, .PSD, .PNG, .JPG etc. The most important thing is that the artwork be submitted at a resolution of 300 DPI




If I download my logo from Facebook, will that work?


Maybe. But more than likely no. At least not "as is". If you only have a screen shot/online download of your logo, there may be a one time art fee associated with your order.




What is 300 DPI?


300 Dots per inch. That's the resolution your artwork needs to be created at in order to achieve a high quality print.




Can you use a hand drawn picture?


Absolutely! But there may be a one time art charge associated with the order since we will more than likely have to vector trace the picture.




How accurate is the mockup?


The mockup we deliver is pretty accurate. But keep in mind, that it is a virtual representation of how your print will look and your viewing it from a computer screen. So colors could vary slightly. However, all the relevant sizing and placement info will be accurate.




Can I bring my own shirts?


Sure thing. But unless your a licensed reseller, it won't save you much money. Check with us first to find out how much you'll save.




My second order costs more than my first order?


Screen printing prices are based on quantity. So if you order 100 shirts today, and then need 40 more later down the road, you'll end up paying more per piece.

Why does my second order cost more than my first order?





Do you guys ship?


Yes absolutely! We ship UPS, Fedex, and USPS. If you have your own account, you can give us that info when ordering.




Will you guys price match?


In most cases, yes! But unfortunately we can't price match with printers who work from home or from basements or garages. So it must be a reputable print shop.
