With only the highest quality inks available, our prints feel great with long-lasting durability. Standard plastisol inks are used for many print processes as well.

Our oversized print size is generally 15” x 20″, depending on the shirt brand and size.

Please keep in mind that screens do not change, only the size of the garment does.

Turnaround time is generally 10-15 business days.

Special Effects • Foil, Puff, and Glitter Inks

Take your designs to the next level with our special effects printing.

Puff creates a relief effect, while foil achieves a metallic effect.

Unless specified, this is our standard style of printing with a print size of up to 12.5” X 16” and an oversized print size of up to 15″ X 20″ with an additional fee.

Turnaround time is generally 10-15 business days.

Discharge Printing

With discharge printing, we bleach the dye out of the shirt, leaving its natural color showing through.

Please keep in mind that results may vary depending on the shirt color and brand.

You must wash the shirts before they take their “no feel” state.

Turnaround time is generally 10-15 business days.

Simulated Process Printing

Simulated Process is what you will want to use when you have a full-color design on a dark garment.

Prints are achieved by blending higher opacity inks to give the look of a full-color print using any number of inks needed.

This print process can be used on any color garment but requires a lot of skill in artwork separation.

Due to the difficulty involved, there may be a one-time setup fee to get your artwork ready for print.

Turnaround time is generally 15 business days.

Frequently Asked Questions

What types of files are best for T-shirt printing?

We recommend using vector files such as Corell Draw (.cdr), Adobe Illustrator (.ai, .eps), and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf) for the best quality printing.

High-resolution bitmap images such as Adobe Photoshop (.psd), JPEG Images (.jpeg), and TIFF Images (.tif) are also acceptable.

Can you help me prepare my file for printing if it doesn't meet your requirements?
Yes, for a small fee, our designer can help you prepare your image for printing.
What is the minimum order quantity for screen printing?
Our minimum order quantity for screen printed apparel is 24 pieces of each design. Printing costs decrease as the quantity of shirts increases, making larger orders more cost-effective.
Are there any set up fees?
No, all set up fees are included in your pricing.
What is your turnaround time for screen printed orders?
Our estimated turnaround time for screen printed orders is 2 weeks plus shipping time.

This starts once the order is finalized, and all designs must be approved and apparel and sizing chosen. Rush order fees may apply for orders with short turnaround times.

Can I mix and match different shirt styles?
Yes, as long as you are printing the same design on all apparel and the same garment color, you can mix and match the style of shirt.

For example, if you are printing a 1 color design on 24 pieces of apparel, you can print on 8 t-shirts, 8 tanks, and 8 hoodies, all in white.

How can I keep my T-shirt printing cost down?
You can save money by increasing your order quantity since the price per shirt decreases as the quantity increases. Choosing economical apparel options can also reduce costs. Consider minimizing the number of print locations and colors used.

Instead of printing on both the front and back of the shirt, choose one location. If a design uses six colors, try to achieve the same effect using just three or four colors.

What is custom design?
Custom design is the process of creating a unique design for your apparel. We can help you create a custom design for your T-shirt or apparel.
What types of printing do you offer?
We specialize in screen printing for T-shirts and apparel. We also offer custom embroidery services.
