Initial order, 12 pieces – reorders, 4 pieces
Let’s just say things happen. Due to those rare misprints, all orders are subject to a +/- 3% misprint ratio – which is common in the industry. To insure an exact number, we suggest ordering a few more garments.
Yes, as long as the screen print design remains the same for the entire order.
Print locations include front, back, sleeve, pocket…and many more. Contact us to discuss the possible options for your custom design.
We have the ability to print up to 7 spot colors on light garments – 6 colors on dark garments.
The price quoted includes the apparel, printing, screens, set-up, basic artwork and shipping on orders of 144+ pieces.
consider light colored garments (ideally white) as dark colored garments require a white base print, adding the cost of an additional color
use the shirt color as part of the design to eliminate an ink color

limit print locations
order price-break quantities to significantly decrease the cost per piece
Yes. Orders needing more than one size of an art design are subject to a screen charge of $15 per color/per location. Customer supplied art requiring extensive

Average turnaround time is 5-7 business days (excluding holidays) + shipping. For screen printing, this begins after we receive your invoice/art proof approvals and payment method. For new embroidery orders – after we receive approvals for the invoice, art proof and design sew out along with payment method. For promotional products, estimate 2-3 weeks before shipping. This is only an estimate and can increase with supplier shipping issues, order add-ons and additional finishing services. Be sure to let us know if you have a “date needed” when placing your order!
