Q: What files can you accept?

A: We accept indesign, photoshop, jpgs & illustrator files as well as HIGH resolution PDFs. All ink colors should be in SPOT and be able to separate if multicolor and be print-ready. Resolution should be 300dpi if raster. You can email it to us or provide a flash drive. We also use dropbox.com. Just ask any questions about sending art and we will be more than happy to work with you and your design. Check out our design services page for pricing.

Q: How should I send my files?

A: You can use our online order page and upload your artwork with your order info. You can also email the art files, drop off a CD or flash drive.

Q: How should I size my art?

A: The best way is to print your design out and lay it on a shirt to see the exact size it will be. You could also measure a shirt to see how big you want it to fit on the shirt. We will not resize your art unless you say so. Also remember that some art files may fit nicely on 1 type of tee but be too big for women’s or youth tees. 12″ wide by 15″ tall is our standard size pallet. The oversize pallet is up to 16″ wide x 18″ tall. (Standard tee artwork is around 10-11 inches wide on a shirt).

Q: What is your turnaround time?

A: Our normal turnaround time is 7-10 business days depending on the size of order. Small orders may be done sooner. We are closed Saturday and Sunday and most major holidays.

Q: Do you print RUSH orders?

A: Yes, depending on when you need them,  RUSH charges will apply. Price depends on rush time and size of order.

Q: Can I mix shirt sizes and colors?

A: Yes, you can mix colors, sizes and styles. Sizes 2XL & higher will have an upcharge. Mixing shirt colors is also available, if ink colors must change between tee colors its a $10 color change fee for each color change.

Q: What kinds of garments can you print on?

A: We can print on any printable garment you want! We normally print on Gildan cotton or 50/50, American Apparel, Tultex or Anvil fashion fit tees but we can get any name brand of your choice. Check out our catalogs here

Q: Are shipping prices included in prices?

A: Let us know the address where you want your order shipped and if its residence or commercial and we will provide you with a shipping quote. We ship everything UPS ground unless you prefer another method. We will ship next day or 2nd day air if you need your order sooner.

Q: Do you have a minimum shirt order?

A: We require at least 12 pieces to print a job. We recommend 24 pieces because once we are set up and screens are registered it really takes us just as much time to print 24 as it does 12 and the cost per piece is a lot cheaper per shirt.

Q: What forms of payments do you except?

A: We accept cash, check, money order, or any major credit card. We require full payment up front for clients out of the Dayton, OH area.

Q: What are my choices for ink colors?

A: We print primarily with triangle inks and keep all the basic colors in stock. If you need a custom color, we can custom mix to any swatch or Pantone color. $20 mixing fee is applied per Pantone color match. Check out the triangle ink chart here!

Q: Do you save the art and screens?

A: We do save all art so when you need to reorder, we’ll have it on file. We do not keep screens. The screens are reusable and we reclaim them for other jobs because of screen inventory. Screen charges cover the screen making process, printing the films, and file separations as well as set-up.

Q: Do you print over seams and zippers?

A: Yes we do. Depending on the art, a small charge may apply. Please note we are not responsible for inconsistencies of print on seams because we are printing on an uneven surface. It is unavoidable and some ink’s colors and garments do better than others. Feel free to ask us any questions you may have on this subject

Q: Do you do oversize or jumbo printing?

A: Yes, we can do oversize (16 inches wide x18 long) for .50 more per location. Email us for sizing,  dimensions, and quotes!

Q: Can you fold and bag my shirts or apply hang tags?

A: Yes we can! We offer several finishing services to help sell your garments such as individual bagging, removal of old tags and print your own tag, attaching a hang tag to the existing tag, and applying size labels!
