Screen Printing Questions
Can I print on various sizes?
T-shirts for youth medium to adult 10XL can be printed together at a 12.5" x 12.5" design size. Youth small, infant and toddler sizes will need to be screen printed with a smaller sized print. We can print both youth and adult T-shirts together if the design size is made to fit the smallest shirt being screen printed. Some customers prefer to have two sizes of artwork made, one for adult and one for youth. When printing a small order, one size of art is the most economical choice.
Can I print on various shirt colors?
As long as the same ink color can be used on all tee shirts, there should be no problem. In some cases there is an additional charge for printing on dark colors.
Can I print on a variety of products?
T-shirts and sweatshirts can be combined into one screen printing order. The fabric or design size of jackets can require a separate process and treatment as a separate order.
Can you screen print 4 color process artwork?
Yes, we offer four color process. 4 color process designs are best printed on white garments. Many times spot color can be more affordable and effective. We are happy to work this through for you to find the best colors for your design.
Are you able to use my logo for embroidery?
Yes, we can digitize your logo for embroidery at whatever size you require. Digitizing fees are based on the complexity and size of the design.
Can I bleach my embroidered garment?
Our standard embroidery thread is made from rayon, so non-chlorine bleach is best for washing your garments. However, special polyester thread is available at an additional cost if you intend to use chlorine bleach or have your garments washed industrially.
