Setup charges: None
Screen Charges: $25/Screen.
We can talk more about the screen charges if you have questions.
Screen printing charges as follows: This is per design. Example… If you have 3 images and 51 shirts for one of the images, that image will be $3.50/shirt, the other two that are less than 51 shirts will be at the $4.00/shirt rate.
1-50 shirts $4.00 per shirt
51-100 shirts $3.50 per shirt
101-200 shirts $3.00 per shirt
201+ shirts $2.50 per shirt
Shirt Supplier & Cost: We use Bella Canvas. They are local which makes it nice because our clients save on shipping cost. We do not charge for pick up either. Check out www.bellacanvas.com we usually use 3001 and 3001CVC however if you want something else let us know what style number that you are interested in and we will get you a price. Wholesale pricing on garments are by style number, color and size. If you’d like another brand, we can certainly order those, but shipping cost will be client responsibility. When ordering from Bella Canvas, please make note of the style number as that is what I use for ordering the garments. I will need the style number, colors, sizes, and quantity.
Shipping Cost: This depends on where you live and the weight of the package. We use USPS and provide TRACKING NUMBERS once your items have been shipped.
Designs: We prefer all designs be PNG or PDF. No jpeg please. It takes too much work to clean up those types of images. We can do it, but its gets to be expensive at $50/hr for artwork. First 30 minutes of artwork is free, after that, it is billed in 15 min increments.
Mockups: Mock-ups will be provided upon request but this time will be applied to the artwork charges.
Ink Colours: I have a ton of standard ink colours. Specialty plastisol inks will have to be purchased and mixed by my ink supplier. Prices vary on the quantity purchased.
Color Charges: I only charge for additional colors if there are more than 2 colors. After that, its an additional 50 cents/color per shirt. I usually have to charge that when putting anything other than white on a black or dark garment. I have to add a white under base to any color you want on a dark garment so that the color will be what you asked for. Example... If I try to put red ink on a black shirt without an under base, it will be a brownish-red color. But when I apply the under base, it will be the true red that you asked for. If you want different colors for the same image, but want to save money on screen fees (white ink for 10 shirts and then black ink for 10 shirts), then there is a color change fee of $15 per color change. Changing colors takes a lot of time as I have to clean the screens completely before putting another color in the screen.
How long screens are kept on file: I keep all screens that you will possibly order more shirts for. I typically keep them for 30 days past the last delivery date. Then I reclaim them and utilize them for another image on someone else’s shirts. If you feel that you will order more shirts past the 30 days, just let me know and I will save the screens for a bit longer. Once the screen is reclaimed, and then you decide you want another order, I will charge the $25/screen fee to re-make the screen again.
Turn around time: If everything is in place and I have the screens ready to print... then I can get the shirts done in about 5-7 days. I just have to place an order with Bella Canvas the day before I plan to print and then pick up the next day and print. Then ship to you the next day after printing. As long as all garments are in stock and not backordered. The turnaround time is totally dependent on us working out the details of your order and having the screens ready for print. If you need prints in a hurry, just ask and we can discuss rush orders. If the screens are made and a rush order is needed we charge an additional $50 for order delivery within 3 days. Complete orders are dependent on Bella Canvas having all garments in stock and the images being on the screen.
