Common Apparel printing FAQ:
How much does it cost to print a shirt?
The cost of printing your unique job will depend on several specific factors (see here for more information on what goes into printing). The number of colors, locations, total items to print, and which garments you choose all factor into the price. The best way to figure it out is to give us as many details you can on your project by filling out our online form.
What is the minimum order?
We have a minimum order of 12 for t-shirts/garments. This could be half mens, half womens, or different colors and sizes as long as the print is exactly the same on all of them. Feel free to mix and match to get to the minimum order quantity. For more on our minimums and polices click here.
What type of file should I send you?
When you email us a design, Adobe Illustrator is our preferred format. Don't fret if your file is different, always send the largest and best quality file you have, for example 300 dpi for a JPEG file. If your design idea is only in your head or sketched on a napkin, be as detailed as possible in your description, send whatever you can. We can usually make a mockup from the information you have and get a free quote to you. If your design is not in its final format, design charges may apply.
Can you make a design for me?
Yes, most of the time we are able to help you with your design. Torrey also does custom illustration work and we have super talented design friends we can recommend if we can't fit it in.
Where can you print?
We can print on the front, back, side, sleeve(s), shoulder, chest and just about anywhere else. Let us know where you want your print located and we will send you a digitial mockup of how it will look on the garment. We can help with sizing and layout as well. Our max print size is about 15"x15", possibly bigger depending on total quantity and what the image looks like
How long will it take to complete my custom print order?
Once our correspondence is complete and you approve your final invoice, we have a ~2 week turnaround for custom orders. Certain times of the year we are very busy and will let you know if that timeline changes. If you have a rush job or a specific 'in hands' date let us know we can usually make it work. Rush fees may apply.
Where are your shirts from?
We work with our distributors to offer the best and most economic apparel options on the market. We have catalogs with thousands of options to choose from, but don't be intimidated, we can narrow it down to our favorites if you let us know what you are looking for. Some of the brands are made in the USA, some are not. Most of our favorite products have social responsibility policies on their websites and we are happy to provide that information and transparency when possible.
Can you print on ....... ?
Yes! Probably? Ask and we can let you know! We have printed on t-shirts, sweatshirts, jackets, hats, and all types of apparel - we have a wide variety of sources for garments. We also have printed on paper, tablecloths, wood, skateboards, walls, koozies, coasters, etc.
Do you do embroidery?
Yes we do. Certain hats, jackets, and some other garments don't lend themselves well to screen printing. If this is the case for your project we would recommend embroidery.
Do you do digital printing?
No, sorry we do not do any digital printing at our shop, only screen printing.
