T-Shirt Printing FAQs

- Colors – the number of colors in your design.
- Locations – the amount and locations of printing on the garment.
2. What factors affect our pricing?
- Type: The brands carries vary in price. We use our purchasing power to get you the best possible deal on blank apparel.
- Quantity: Our printing process dictates that if you order a greater quantity of shirts, so you’ll save money. It’s simply less expensive for us to set up and print a large number of the same design than it is to set up and print a small number of a single design.
- Colors: The process of screen printing requires us to make a separate screen for every color in your design. Therefore, the fewer colors in your design, the less expensive producing the design becomes for us and for customers.
- Locations: Each printing location on a piece of apparel (i.e. front, back, sleeve, etc.) demands a specific set-up in order to execute. Therefore, multiple printing locations on your apparel will raise the price.
3. How can I lower the cost of my order?
Print on white shirts
White t-shirts require under base which is also another ink consumption for silk screen printing.
Use fewer design colors
The screen printing process requires us to make a separate screen for each color in your design. Therefore, the less screens we have to make, the less expensive it is to print your apparel.
Increase order size
The more shirts of the same design that you order, the less expensive it is for us to produce them.
Decrease printing locations
The fewer screens for us to set up for one apparel order, therefore, the less expensive that apparel will be for the customer. Each printing location on a garment requires separate screen set up or heat press, so printing just on the front of a shirt versus printing on the front and back will reduce your overall cost.
