F.A.Q

our most frequently asked questions

I need some shirts printed, how much are they?

Well, that depends on what type of shirt, your artwork, how many you need, etc...  Head over to our Contact page, fill out our form & we'll get you a quote!

What is your minimum order?

We have a 12 piece minimum for single color prints and a 24 piece minimum for multi-color designs

What is your turn around time?

Our usual turn around time is 7-14 days...if we are running longer than that, we will let you know.  That time starts when we have all artwork and info & you have placed a deposit, not at our initial contact.  If you have a deadline that you absolutely need your order by, please let us know up front.

Can I order just 1 shirt?

No.  That isn't really the kind of printing we do.  Each order requires us to print a film, prepare a screen and set the press for each color (example: a 4 color logo needs 4 films and 4 screens).  It takes some work to set up your job, so that's why we have minimums.

Can you print on shirts that I provide?

Yes, but please get in touch before buying anything to make sure you are getting something that is printable.  We have accounts with a bunch of wholesale distributors and can almost always get what you are looking for.  And most of the time at a better price!

Do you charge set up fees?

All of our set up fees are included in the price of your job!

What is the best way to place an order?

Email works best.  That way we both have something to refer back to and details don't get lost.  Sometimes phone calls are necessary (and of course welcome), but we'll probably end up back at emails for artwork, proofs and general communication.

How/when do I pay?

Cash and check are preferred (no pesky fees!) but credit cards are welcome too.  We ask for a 50% deposit up front with the remaining balance due upon delivery of your order.  Also, please let us know who to make the invoice out to.

What file formats do you accept?

.psd, .pdf, .eps, .ai, .tif & .jpg formats will work.  Files should be at least 300dpi or vector files.  If your art looks pixelated or blurry to begin with, it will not print well...which leads to the next question:

*** SCREEN SHOTS ARE NOT USABLE ARTWORK.  Logos created in Microsoft Word won't work either ***

Can I just pull any picture From the internet?

If you start with a low resolution, junky picture from Google, your print will probably look junky too.  Trash in means trash out, right?  If you are searching Google Images, go into the "Tools" menu and set the "Size" to Large.  This doesn't guarantee you'll get a usable image, but it's at least a start.

I'm starting a clothing brand & I'm gonna need a ton of shirtS, but can I just get a couple now to see what they'll look like?

No.  We provide digital proofs for every job, but can not provide printed samples.  Please refer back to the 'Can I order just 1 shirt' question.

I'm starting a clothing brand, but I'm tight on cash...can I still get bulk pricing on just a few shirts?

Nope.  We are a small business too, we get it.  But quantity drives price.  If we quote your order at 100 shirts, they all need to be printed in one go, not in stages.
