FAQs
Screen Printing
  • What types of items can be screen printed?
    • A sample of items ideal for screen printing are clothing, bags, umbrellas, caps, hats and towels. By no means are these the only items. If you have something in particular you'd like screenprinted please contact us.
  • How is your screen printing priced?
    • Screen printing pricing is based on the number of colors, the quantity printed and the color of the item the screen printing is being applied to. The greater the number of colors, the higher the price. The smaller the amount of items being done at one time, the higher the price.
  • If I provide a photograph, will it be identical when screen printed?
    • The screen printing process is different than printing something on a flat piece of paper. Because material is porous it is difficult to get screen printing to duplicate a photograph entirely. In most cases we are able to get an excellent reproduction.
  • What type of artwork do you need for screen printing?
    • The better the artwork, the better. We do have artists available to reproduce hand drawings, but our preference is to have camera-ready artwork. Camera-ready refers to an image that has a vector format in 300 dpi (dots per inch). The most common vector files are from Corel Draw (cdr), Adobe Illustrator (ai) and Photoshop (eps). Other image files such as gif, jpg, jpeg, bmp or tiff can also be used but will require our artist to make adjustments to ensure the best screen printed image possible.
  • What is the process for screen printing?
      The screen printing process consists of:
    • Receive order and artwork
    • Clothing or items are ordered
    • Artist separates artwork into different colors
    • Screens are burned
    • Once we receive the clothing or items, printing is scheduled
    • Items printed
    • Shipped to customer or picked up
  • Is there a setup fee for screen printing?
    • Yes, there is a one time set-up fee of $20 for each colors in the design. If you get items printing again using the same design there will not be a set-up fee.
  • Why is screen printing more expensive than heat transfers?
    • Screen printing uses a plastic ink that has a consistency similar to paint. Screen printed goods do not crack or fade (unless put into direct sunlight for long periods of time), like a heat transfer does. Screen printed items are of a higher quality and will outlast an item with a heat transfer.
General
  • We are not in your area, does this matter?
    • Not at all. Generally the artwork required for production is sent via electronic means, such as e-mail or fax. We are able to ship across the United States, for a minimal cost.
  • I need something fast, can you help?
    • Certainly, we accommodate rush orders whenever possible.
  • How long will it take to get my order?
    • We usually have orders shipped out within 7 - 14 work days from the time the design has been approved.
  • Do you have minimum order requirements?
    • Yes, there are minimum order quantities for most orders, but we have been able to help customers who are willing to wait if they have a smaller order.
