Guidelines for Screen Print

Step 1: Pick your garments

Select the garments you want to print from the Garments section.  The higher the quantity of goods you print, the lower the cost for screenprinting.  The minimum order for printing is 12 pieces of any one design, but you can mix and match colors and styles, as long as you are using the same color(s) of ink on each garment.  If there is a style youd like that you want but dont see here, please call us at 800-678-0380.  We have lots of things to choose from but the most basic items are listed in the garments section.

 Step 2: Pick your printing and upload your design

Once you have the garments in your cart, go to the Screen Print section.  Select the number of colors in your design for example, if you are printing blue and yellow on a white shirt, select Two Colors.  The price will vary based on the quantity.  Higher quantity = lower price per unit.  The price will be adjusted once you fill out the quantity field. 

Youll see that on the pages where you have selected your color quantities, there is a field where you upload your design.  Click Browse to find the file in your computer.  Please make sure your design is a minimum of 300 dpi (dots per inch) and is scaled to be the size you want it on the shirt.  The largest it can be is 11 inches wide by 17 inches tall. Then upload it!

These steps need to be completed for each part of the garment that is being printed.  So for example, if you are printing blue and yellow on the back but just blue on the front, you would have 12 2-color impressions and 12 1-color impressions, and you would also upload each design separately.  In the Comments section, please specify where the design is going e.g. left chest, right sleeve, full front, full back.   Make sense so far?  Good.

Youll notice that there is an additional Set-Up charge of $40 per color.  That is for printing the film and burning the screen.  Its a one-time charge, so if you decide to print more of the same design, you wont be charged the set-up fee again.

Step 3: Do you need flash?

Flash is the process of drying the ink when printing on a dark t-shirt.  If you are printing a lighter color on a dark shirt (or any color on a black shirt), you need to add flash.  For example, you are printing light blue and white on 12 red t-shirts.  You would select 2-color and type 12 in the Quantity field, but you would also select flash and type 12 in the Quantity field.   Again, do this for the front and back.  Bear with us, youre almost done!

Step 4: Check your cart and check out

Look at your cart to confirm that youve entered everything correctly.  If you have any questions, please call us at 800-678-0380.  Then check out (and eagerly await your freshly printed items)!
