PRINT GUIDELINES

Minimum Order

For screen printing orders, a minimum order of at least 12 garments is required. If you have a run that will be less than 12 garments, we recommend doing a heat transfer process to get your design onto your garment. Embroidery does not require a minimum amount. 

Artwork Guidelines

We prefer artwork in .psd, .eps, or .ai formats. Large .jpg files can work, but are not the best method of providing artwork. Please specify any colors and save images to printed dimensions. Artwork not conforming to these guidelines may be subject to an artwork fee of $35. For all orders: We will furnish a digital proof for customer approval before ordering product or printing. The first 3 revisions to the proof are free, but any additional proofs will be $15 per proof. Customers are responsible for copyright permissions, etc.

Ink Colors

We have a wide color range of standard colors available but if you can't find exactly what you are looking for on the chart below we are happy to match your specific Pantone numbers for an additional fee of $15 per color. Exact color matching cannot always be guaranteed.

Because these colors are being viewed on a screen, this means that they are using RGB to display the colors, whereas a printed piece uses CMYK to show color. Because of this difference, the colors above are not 100% accurate to what color the ink will print. 

Screen Size

The max area that we can print on is 14.00" x 16.00"

Adult Print Area:

  • Front: 10.50" x 10.50"

  • Back: 12.00" x 12.00"

  • Left Chest: 3.50" x 3.50"

Youth Print Area:

  • Front: 9.50" x 9.50"

  • Back: 11.00" x 11.00"

  • Left Chest: 3.50" x 3.50"

These print areas can also be limited by the type of garments being printed on.

Screen Fee

We charge a flat $20 screen fee per screen for the setup of new artwork. Each color in your design requires a separate screen. For example a 2-color print will incur a $40 screen fee, a 3-color will incur a $60 screen fee, and so on. This is a one time fee that we don't charge again for reprints of the same design, and we will keep your design on file forever and ever.

Turnaround Time

Our standard production turnaround time is 10 business days from confirmation of all order details, including artwork sizing, location, and colors, as well as shirt quantities, sizes, and colors. 

Rush Fees

Any order within our 2 week turnaround is subject to a $25 rush fee. Same-week turnaround is subject to a $50 rush fee. This fee will be applied to your pre-tax total. our ability to rush an order depends on our current production schedule, and while we do our best to offer this service at all times, occasionally we will not be able to accommodate any rush order. Please notify us of your project deadline as soon as possible when requesting a quote and we can review all options.

Lead Time

Please allow at least 2-3 business days for us to finalize your quotes and artwork. It doesn't always take that long to ensure consistent, high-quality work, but it certainly doesn't hurt.

Graphic Design

If you need help with design concepts, we are here to help! Typically, design work for a shirt costs $45, depending on the complexity, print locations, and number of revisions.

Out of Stock Items

While we source our garments from a variety of distributors to ensure you can get the shirts you want, some items just won't be in stock. We're happy to check stock on any items as soon as you can tell us what you want, and we can often find a great alternative if something can't be found.

Changes/Cancellation Made After Approval

Once we have your design mocked up and your shirt picked out with specific sizes, we will send you an invoice listing out your full order. Your approval on this invoice is the last step we need to move forward - please read the fine print carefully before approving! Once we get the go-ahead, that invoice and mockup is locked in and cannot be changed. We are not responsible for any errors that exist in either an approved mockup or invoice, and it is your responsibility to make sure our information matches what you want before approving. 

Payment, Pickup, Etc.

We are happy to accept payment via cash, check, Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. 40% deposit is required on all orders and the balance is due upon receipt of goods.
