Emailing us works best. We will need quantities, garment type or style numbers, color of garment, sizes, artwork(s) and location(s).
You will receive a estimated quote. If we need more information, we will ask.
We will email you a digital mockup. This mockup will include a photo of your garment with logo(s) for sizing, coloring and placement (colors from screen to print could vary). You will need to approve this verbally or in writing.
Once approved and we've received 1/2 of the total order upfront, we can get started. You can stop by the store or call us on the phone to give the deposit (we accept cash, cards and checks).
The balance of your order is due at pickup (unless otherwise approved). We are open M-F 9-5 and Saturdays 9-2.
We have a minimum order of 12 pieces on screen printing orders (and 25 on multi-color prints). Since screen printing is designed to be printed in bulk, the actual printing process is the fastest part. All the costs are really in time and setup. This is why the cost per shirt goes down the more you print per design. A lot of work goes into getting a shirt ready to print — from artwork to film positives and setting up the screens, it takes a good bit of time to setup the press. We can offer custom printing of small batches (even one shirt!) but you pay as if you’re getting 12.
However, we can “print” a single t-shirt using a heat-on vinyl. This process can be done easily for one item depending on the complexity of the design as well as number of colors. If you are looking for just one shirt this is probably your best option. Keep in mind vinyl only comes in certain colors - we only use what we have in stock. If you are wanting a certain color you may want to opt for screen printing. Cost for vinyl depends on overall size.
Embroidering a single garment is different. We can setup a logo and embroider it without all the extra upfront setup. If you are doing a logo we do charge a fee to format it correctly. If you're just looking for just type we can do one item fairly quickly.
A lot of factors go into the final cost of a screen printing project. Factors include how many colors you want, artwork, location of print, garment type and quantity. We have price breaks at 24, 48, 72, and 144.
Embroidery also has a number of factors including size, stitch count, and quantity of garments.

In order for a print to be perfect you have to print on a smooth, flat surface. Any print that goes over a seam, collar or any other uneven surface will never be perfect because the screens cannot lay flat on the garment. We always recommend staying away from any printing that will go over seams but we will gladly do it at your request. As far as what we print on, your wish is our command; we are happy to print on any garment, hat, blanket, towel, etc. of your choosing as long as it's in our capabilities. We prefer to print on our garments as they are meant to embellish and we have knowledge of our materials. That being said, we can print or embroider your own garments but we are not liable for any errors that occur in the production process.
We have a variety of standard ink colors that we carry. If you are wanting a specific ink color, we can custom mix one but cannot guarantee an exact match and it could vary on reorders of the same design. If you are doing a large job where you need an ink color to match a PMS or pantone color, we can order this for you at an additional charge. That cost is usually $100 per color and we keep the ink.
Picking out a brand and style can sometimes be the hardest part of the process since there are so many different options. To help with this stop by and we can show you our favorites. Or check out our catalog here.
Your print will only be as good as the artwork you provide. The larger the image, the better we can setup the screen or embroidery file. A vector or AI file works best but we will work with what you have. If you want to reproduce a hand-drawn logo - we can do that for an additional design fee. If you have questions, just ask us!
Typically we have our orders completed within 2 weeks of the deposit date. Time frame for your order could depend on quantity and difficulty as well as outstanding orders. We take orders as they come in, if you need them sooner you can pay to rush your order (additional fee may apply). We usually give a latest completion date, but keep in mind they could be done sooner or later than the specified date.
Direct-to-garment is a four-color process printing using the four primary ink colors called CMYK. This process can only be completed on light-colored garments as the machine does not have white ink. The inks are semi-transparent, so whatever your t-shirt color is, that's the background of your image. In DTG printing there is a possibility in variations and color shifts from computer monitors to actual print. We make no guarantees the color will match from screen to print.
Vinyl is a technique of decorating fabric by cutting a design out of a specialty paper and then transferring it to fabric with heat and pressure. We often use this technique for team names or numbers and single shirt orders.
