Pricing of shirts varies depending on:
1) Total quantity of shirts being printed (Minimum 12)
2) The brand, color and type of shirt
3) The number of colors in your artwork
4) The number of locations being printed
Our minimum is 12 shirts for most orders. Artwork that requires special separations or ink may be higher
We can do below the minimum if needed, but the shirts will be quite a bit more per shirt due to the preparation, set up, and clean up involved in screen printing. It is not usually costs effective to do less than 12 shirts. For Water based and Discharge ink jobs the minimum is 50 shirts due the screen and ink preparation. For CMYK full color process jobs the minimum is 50 shirts due to an even more elaborate setup and color separation.
Usually about 7-10 business days for a standard order once we have all the artwork and deposit. We can do rush orders for an extra charge if needed. Please note. Some jobs may require shipping of certain brands or materials, and therefore may require additional time.
Due to the extensive setup process screen printing requires we cannot offer samples because they slow down our production of other jobs. If you'd like to see samples you can see our portfolio or come into our shop and see some of the examples we've printed to get an idea of our work.
We keep the screens around for a few weeks in the case of having to reprint them quickly. After about 2 weeks we re-claim the screens for other jobs. If you come back to print a previous job after it has been reclaimed setup will be $15 per screen instead of $25 as long as the artwork and print colors are the same as before.
Note: We do offer keeping your screens aside for designs that will be printed many time, it will be an additional $20 per screen and you wont have to pay that set up again, ever.
No problem! It will take off about $2.00 per shirt at base pricing. Contact us for a full quote. However we get apparel at wholesale prices so you most likely won't be saving any money. Please note we are not responsible for inconsistencies printing on provided garments since they are not supplied by us.
We require a 50% deposit on orders over $200, the remaining balance can be paid upon pick up, or before shipping if not local. Jobs under $200 require full payment to start the job. We take cash and credit cards, paypal and checks. Jobs payed via check must be paid in full up front and returned checks will be subject to a $30 fee.
6% Michigan state tax will be added to your order unless you have a tax exempt or resale id#.
You can send us your artwork via email. Your artwork should be sent to us scaled to the size you want it printed. It can be either a vectorized format such as an Adobe Illustrator AI or a PDF file or a rasterized format like a JPEG, GIF, or a Photoshop PSD file, please make sure the image is sized to 300 dpi.
The standard size print area is 12" inches by 14" Jumbo print would be 13” x 16”
Not a problem. We can create something for in-house for you. If you can provide any sketches, examples, or a description of what you want we can create something for you. We do not charge a design/layout fee for most screen printed jobs, however, if your job requires custom art or downloadable stock art, extra fees will incur.
We suggest scheduling a time to do pick-up if you are local otherwise, we can ship it to you via UPS ground, added on to the invoice.
We can print up to 6 colors, as well as CMYK process and simulated process printing, which can replicate gradients and full color images using fine half-tones.
Pantone numbers are the only accurate way to make sure we get exactly the color you are looking for. If pantone numbers aren't provided, we can only match colors based on what appears on our computer screen, which we have no way of guaranteeing looks the same on our monitors. Custom ink color mixing may incur extra charges depending on if it is a color we can use again.
Yes, you can mix colors of shirts at no charge as long as the colors of the print stay the same, but be reasonable i.e. do not order 10 different color shirts for a 30 shirt job. You can also change the color of the ink which will costs $15 per ink change on each screen. You may also mix and mach actual garments such as short and long sleeve tees, crew sweatshirts and hooded sweatshirts.
Half-tones are regular patterns of tiny shapes (dots, ellipses, squares are common) that taper out to create the appearance of a color fading (Gradient) to white or another color at the edges.
