Whether you are looking for basic t-shirt printing or more custom apparel printing, we offer print locations including: fronts, backs, sides, arms, pockets, collars, hips, sleeves, shoulders, hoods, armpits, across zippers, or even off the edge of shirts. We can help you out and we have experience. Chances are you’ll have a hard time coming up with a print location we haven’t put some ink on. Each garment is unique and comes with its own opportunities and limitations; contact us to see how we can help with your order!
Though we’re pros at printing custom apparel orders, that doesn’t mean that every garment will be identical. Customers should plan their artwork accordingly and accept that minor discrepancies are sometimes part of the uniqueness of custom screen printing.
Set-up charges are billed at $25 per screen used on the first order of a print. Repeat orders may have the set-up fee waived if the minimum order for your design is met; you will get one free screen set-up for every 12 pieces on reorders of a print.
TURNAROUND TIME & RUSH CHARGES
Our standard turnaround time is 4-6 business days per garment order. That period of time begins the day we receive approval on supplied artwork proofs, final garment quantities, and deposit payment. Any additional garments added at a later date may extend turnaround time. Standard turnaround time may also be extended on rare occasion depending on workflow, if that happens we will let you know!
If you need your garments for a particular date, please tell us when you place your order as we will need to plan our print schedule accordingly. We will do everything we can to accommodate your deadline without a rush charge. However, in some cases we may require a rush fee if overtime is needed to meet your deadline. Revising your deadline after an order has been placed may also result in rush charges.
If you have an order that needs our immediate attention, we encourage you to give us a call right now so we can discuss the details. Rush orders are defined as any order that requires less than 10 business day turnaround time, however that doesn’t necessarily mean that your order will incur rush charges. Rush charges are applied when necessary to expedite your order, pay for immediate work, overtime, etc. Rush charges apply to all printing and artwork totals on your invoice. All rush orders from our specialty suppliers may also be subject to additional charges equal to the expedited shipping applied to the apparel blanks. As we offer over 5,000 different garment styles in various apparel colors and sizes, we do not stock blank garments. All garments are ordered specific for our customer’s needs, however we sometimes have some options available in stock if you need an order with a very quick turnaround time.
If we’re shipping your order, we need to know where to send it! Shipping is not included in our standard turnaround time. If we know you have a deadline and know that we’re shipping your order, we’ll plan accordingly to get your order to you in time. All standard shipments go out UPS Ground, please plan accordingly or make other arrangements. Shipping charges can be added to your invoice or billed to your account with the shipping company used.
There is truly no low or high limit to the number of garments we can print for an order. Considering the amount of setup time involved in the screen printing process, it is designed for printing multiples. This means ordering a single garment is never the most affordable option.
Although we will print a single garment if our customers request it, we consider 12 pieces to be our standard minimum order for plastisol (conventional) ink, and 48 is our standard minimum for discharge ink. All orders of less than minimum quantity are considered sample printing and have setup screen charges associated with their order. While we have low minimums, we also have quantity discounts at 24, 48, 100, 250; orders over 250 will need a custom quote. Because we work with thousands of apparel styles and a boatload of custom apparel printing options, we don’t have a simple price sheet; please contact us for a custom quote.
We are capable of printing fairly large images, although we are limited by a few variables. The smallest garment in your print run will always dictate the maximum size we are able to print on that specific order. Any order containing both youth and adult sizes will have limits to the printable size, depending on the youth garment sizes. If you’re ordering any type of specialty garments that may have unique features, then we may need to alter the image size to avoid any unprintable areas. Additionally we’re limited by the size of the print pallets that your garments will get loaded onto for printing. We have various sized and shaped pallets specific for different types of garment printing and different print locations. Each print pallet has different dimensions and different variables.
While we do have standard print sizes for standard print locations, we are also able to creatively combine print locations to resemble much larger printing. Our standard print sizes are usually dictated by the width of the artwork, considering most conventional artwork is horizontal.
Here are some standard sizes based on a conventional order of basic shirts:
Standard Adult Full Front Print = 11” wide
Standard Adult Full Back Print = 11” wide
Standard Adult Secondary Back Print = 8” wide
Standard Adult Side Print = 10” wide
Standard Left Chest Print = 3.5” wide
