What kind of art files do I need to print?
Anchor 1

It is important to start with the highest quality artwork available for your screen printing order. This is YOUR image or idea, so care must be taken in order to reproduce it accurately for your project.

Generally this means a high resolution raster image, or a vector file. 300dpi or higher is ideal. 

Some file types to look for are:

.ai, .eps, .cdr .pdf

.psd, .tif, .bmp, .jpg

If your art is in another format don’t worry, we can probably use it or even re-create it if necessary. Because of font substitutions and formatting issues Word documents, and Powerpoint slides will not work so please convert these to a pdf file before sending. Low resolution files and images from the internet will not work. A good rule of thumb is if it looks good on your screen at the size you want it printed, it will look good on your shirts; if it looks bad on screen, your shirts will not look as good as they possibly could.

What if I want to change my art before you print?
Anchor 2

We always want to make sure you're satisfied with your print. We provide digital proofs prior to production for you to approve. Physical proofs can be provided at an additional cost. 

If you're not happy with the art shown in the proof you can re-submit your edited and/or higher resolution art.

We can edit your image to your specs at our prepress rate of $50 an hour. Art generally takes 1-2 hours minimum. Payment for at least 1 full hour required.

Can I mix and match garment types, sizes, and colors?
Anchor 3

Yes. With a few exceptions regarding the artwork being printed we can fulfill almost any order. Color changes may be required. 

How can I get the cost cheaper on my shirts?
Anchor 4

There are a few factors that decide the print cost including number of colors being printed, print areas (front and back prints for example), quantity and quality of garments being printed.

For the best bang for your buck we recommend:

  • Using light colored blanks so no underbase is required

  • 1 color/location prints

  • Bulk ordering for additional savings

The are great options for large volume orders that need to stay on budget. Perfect for events, schools and churches!
