These prices are for a 12” x 12” printing area and do not include the cost of the items nor the cost of screens. We can print larger images, however, the pricing will be determined upon review of the customers’ requirements.
White areas on price list reflect printing on white shirts/items. The shaded areas are for printing on colored shirts/items.
Call us for pricing for 1-11 pieces.
Screens are $45.00 and are for shop use only. Screens (24” x 20”) or smaller with your artwork can be purchased for $60.00 each.
We use Plastisol inks, which last the longest and give the brightest colors. Water-based inks are more expensive, and although they have a softer feel, tend to fade a little at a time with repeated washings. Plastisol inks are acceptable to a wide range of material. Printing on synthetic substrates such as nylon require a different composition of ink and will be printed at a higher price: Fluorescents, Metallic Gold or Silver, fluorescents, Glow-in-the-dark, etc. will cost an extra 50 cents.
8” numbers are $5.00 per shirt.

Why Is There A Screen Charge?
The screen preparation process is a time-consuming skill that is unique to the industry and involves many steps such as cleaning, drying, coating with emulsion, exposing the artwork, drying, blocking, taping, setting up, registration and positioning on the printing table.
We recommend two (2) different size images when there is a mixture of sizes. Youth, small, infant & toddler sizes require a smaller size print than adult shirts. However, the customer may elect to use one (1) screen for all items, regardless of size.
Basic artwork (usually text only) is included in the price of the screen. Complicated artwork, process color or separations will be charged a flat fee upon review of the customer’s artwork.
Line art is artwork made up of solid black lines or dots on a film positive in order to expose onto the screen.
(Photo Realistic Design) is art that incorporates scanned imagery. In order to reproduce a photographic image, we require a scanned image with a resolution of 300 pixels MINIMUM or the actual photo. This manner of printing is called process color. The artwork must be scanned and separated into 4 different layers. Printing the layers on top of each other is what produces the photograph. Today’s technology allows us to reproduce a print that is very close to the original. This process requires four (4) screens on white shirts and five (5) screens on dark shirts.
Each screen in this process is $55.00 and the artwork is $75.00. Due to the cost, this process is recommended for quantities of 100 pieces and up. For smaller quantities, we recommend the heat transfer process.
The heat transfer process is ideally suited for small quantities. Heat transfer paper is a specially treated paper onto which the image is printed with an ink jet printer or a laser copier. Heat transfer papers are designed for both light & dark items. The image is then transferred onto the material with a heat press machine. A heat press machine presses a transfer onto an imprintable substrate utilizing high temperatures and heavy pressure for a specified number of seconds. The standard transfer requires a temperature of between 375 – 475 degrees and a constant pressure between 45-85 psi. These specifics cannot be achieved with a household iron. Heat transfers can be applied to a wide range of clothing, including t-shirts, mouse pads, & tote bags and other items. Heat transfers are clean and environmentally safe -- the only by-product is the paper -- which is biodegradable.
WASHING & DRYING
Special care must be used when washing heat transferred t-shirts. Shirts should be turned inside out and washed on a low cycle. Do not use bleach. Dryer must be set at a low heat cycle.
