Frequently Asked Questions

Screen Printing

What do the quoted prices include?

Screen printing pricing includes the imprint of your logo in one location. Tee shirts are traditionally screen printed. Locations may include left chest, center front, full front, full back, center shoulder, and sleeves. Unusual garments or location will require a special quote, e.g., jacket backs or multiple locations.

What are your pricing policies?

Merchandise is sold at prices in effect at time of shipment. Prices are subject to change without notice. For screen printing, pricing is for sizes XS – XL. There is a small additional charge for sizes 2XL – 4XL, depending upon the garment and quantity ordered.

What are your minimums?

Screen printing minimum production quantities are 24 units. Mixed garments may be chosen that can be screen printed with the same design in the same color ink. For less than minimum quantities, special pricing will be required.

How much are screen charges?

Screen charges are generally $33 per color per location. Screen charges are based on how many colors are in your design. Each color requires a separate screen. Screens are required if there is a difference in the size of the logo. As an example, a two-color left chest logo will require 2 screens. If the same art is used as a full back imprint, then two additional screens are required for the larger imprint. Additional screens may be required if garment sizing crosses over from Youth Small to Adult 2XL. Artwork will not imprint properly on very small to very large garments.

What kind of art file do I need?

Art must be submitted as an .eps file created in art softwear packages such as Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator for promotional products and screen printing. JPEG files are acceptable for creating embroidery stitch files. Artistic though they may be, doodles, napkin sketches, and rough pencil drawings are not camera ready and, therefore, can’t be used. We can convert these doodles for a small art fee.

What is your policy on laundering and shrinkage?

Some shrinkage is unavoidable in knitted garments. To minimize shrinkage, follow washing instructions on the garment label. Do not use bleach on colored fabrics. Do not iron over imprint or embroidered design. Avoid harsh detergents. For a screen printed garment, we highly recommend that the garment be turned inside out. Wash cold and do not use fabric softener.

Can you guarantee consistency of dye lots?

Due to market conditions and mill variances, we cannot guarantee consistency of shades to match precisely order-to-order and dye lot-to-dye lot.
