SCREEN PRINT PRICE FACTORS
Each color in your design is printed with one screen. A 2 color print uses 2 screens, a 3 color print uses 3 screens...you get it. As colors are added, setup and print times are increased, thus increasing the cost per garment. We are happy to print up to 4 colors, but feel 1 & 2 color prints are the most budget friendly.
Each print location requires a separate print run. A shirt with a front print is printed, heat cured, and finished. A shirt with a front and a back print requires the same process for the back. It’s similar to cooking pancakes. No matter how many you’re making, you make sure they’re all done on one side first, then flip them to cook the other side ....mmmm....pancakes.
Another factor to consider is the quantity of items needed. Prices are set on a price-break scale. The more shirts you order the cheaper each shirt is. And don’t worry, if your quantity is close to a price break, we’ll let you know so you get the best price possible.
Not all garments are created equal. Similar to shopping in a retail store, nicer shirts, mean bigger price tag. We recommend Gildan for most t-shirts and hoodies, as these garments are budget friendly and a good mid-grade quality for most applications. But tons of brands and styles are offered should you have the need to be extra snazzy.
