Minimums – As we mentioned above, screen printing is still the ideal solution to printing most apparel items whenever you want to do at least a few dozen of the same design. Our minimum for screen printing is 24 and there really is no maximum. We have access to both manual and auto presses so the only real restriction is our minimum.
Hey, wait, I thought you said you didn’t have any minimums!? Yes, that is true, we do advertise ourselves that way and it is accurate. If you want just a few of something printed, we can do that for you, we just won’t use one of our screen printing presses for it. There is quite a bit of work to setup a screen print job which is what makes it impractical for small runs. Our goal was to create a print shop that could cater to the widest variety of needs and as such, we have invested in equipment that will allow us to meet the needs of the broadest range of customers. If you are looking to print less than 24 of something than we would guide you towards our DTG or Dye Sublimation printing processes.
Art Files – The higher quality your art, the cheaper and better your print will look. Ideally you will be able to supply us with vector art work files that we can use to create the screens. Not sure what that is? No worries, send us what you have and we can let you know if it will work or not. If you don’t have the right type of file, our Photoshop wizards can usually take care of it but it may cost a small fee.
Turnaround Time – Plan ahead. With screen print jobs we need time to order the blanks, edit the art work, create the screens and do the printing so our standard turnaround time for screen printing is 10 business days. We can do it quicker than that but there is a fee for all rush jobs.
