Pricing

Every job order has many variables, so requesting a quote is needed to lock in a firm price.

However, to share a little knowledge about how we derive prices..

Set-up costs - Every color brings along a setup cost for the work involved in burning of the screen, set-up on press, and reclaiming the screen back to its original state.

Ex: A three color front print = $75.00 worth of set-up costs, $25.00 a color. Divide $75.00 by the amount you order and you can see how ordering in bulk saves you money! $75.00 divided by 10 Total Garments = $7.50 in set-up fees alone.  Whereas, if you order 30 garments you are only paying $2.50 per garment.

Print Locations - limiting amount of locations is always guaranteed to save money, but multiple location prints are guaranteed to make twice the impression!

Quantity - get the best bang for your buck by ordering seasonally and in bulk if you can! Price breaks normally start at 36, 72, 144…

Garment Cost - we have a wide variety of wholesale accounts to fit all budgets! Check out are garments page!

About Our Inks

Our love for ink runs deep! We have a wide assortment of ink selection.  We have inks geared for events and tight budgets as well as top grade ink for a retail level look and feel.

Plastisol

This ink is the most commonly used ink in the industry. Plastisol inks sits on top of the fabric , giving the image a superior color saturation and durability.

Water Based

Water based ink is a special type of decorative ink that soaks into the fabric instead of sitting on top of it, as plastisol does. It is generally used on lighter colored garments and allows for a bright print that has a "POP" factor. Garments are left with a super soft and natural feeling print.

Discharge

Discharge screen printing can be used to print colors on dark garments that in the past would have required an additional layer of white ink in order to achieve proper opacity of top colors.
