Custom Printing Prices
Small + Local = Good
Our small team and manual equipment allows us to give your print the time and attention it needs. And being local lets us meet and talk with you for extra special jobs to make sure they come out even better than you expected. Not to mention picking your order up rather than paying for it to be shipped!
We take lots of measures to make sure we are having a positive affect on both our community and our environment. Using solvents made from soy to clean our equipment, recycling our materials, and having a virtually paperless process makes us feel warm and fuzzy inside. If you want to go a little green yourself ask about the many organic garments we offer.

How does artwork need to be formatted?
For the most part, we can help format your finished artwork properly and get it ready for printing. However, if you are creating your own artwork and want to do it yourself, here’s what you need to know:
Your artwork will eventually need to be a vector or raster (bitmap) image before it prints.
Vector .ai .eps .svg
- Fonts must be converted to outlines or font files must be included.
- Linked images in the file must be included or converted to shapes.
Raster (bitmap) .psd .jpg .tiff .bmp
- The image size should be the actual size you want it to appear on the garment. Typical sizes are 4″ x 4″ for smaller designs (such as a left chest or pocket print) and 9-10″ wide for a standard center chest print.
- The image resolution should be 300+ dpi.
- If sending an Adobe Photoshop file (.psd), please rasterize all text (or include font files) and separate colors by layers or channels.
Do you print samples or orders under a dozen?
While we can (and do) print low quantity runs and samples for clients, pricing usually becomes unfavorable at those levels. Our pricing increases for smaller orders because it has a negative affect on our efficiency since more time is spent setting up the job than actually printing it. Contact us for pricing on orders under a dozen.
How should I send artwork to you?
If you are ready to send us your artwork, there are a number of ways to get it to us:
What garment brands do you carry?
Pretty much any major garment brand you can think of. Some clients have requested obscure brands that we haven't carried and we sought out distributors for them. So if we don't carry the garment you want, chances are we can find it.
Will you print on garments/fabric I provide?
Yes, this usually occurs for specialty items and we are happy to accept them as long as extras of them are provided in case of spoilage. However, if you’re thinking of getting standard garments for yourself, keep in mind that we order many different brands of garments from large wholesalers at a low cost (like very, very low). If that’s the case, just check to make sure we can’t provide them for a lower price.
What if my artwork is more than 6 colors?
We may still be able to print it for you. Depending on the design, we have some technical ways to combine and/or remove colors while still keeping it looking good. Send us your artwork and we can help you with this.
Do you use PMS (Pantone Matching System) colors?
No, most of our inks are mixed by hand. But while we can’t guarantee an absolutely perfect color match for non-standard colors, our ink mixing wizardry helps us come very close.
Do you print over seams?
Generally, yes. However, printing over seams is a challenge and can give unexpected results. Consistency may become an issue as garments can experience an uneven ink deposit on seams, which is unpreventable.
When can I expect my prints?
Our standard turnaround time is 1-2 weeks after the order is finalized and garments are ordered, this does not include delivery time if your order is shipped rather than picked up. Orders requiring more urgency can receive quicker service but may incur a rush charge.
Do you print posters?
Yes, we do all kinds of paper printing: signs, posters, restaurant menus, business cards, etc. Contact us for more info and pricing.
What forms of payment do you accept?
Full payment must be received before pickup or shipment. A deposit of half (½) the total order price is required before printing unless you are supplying your own garments. We accept several payment methods:
- Credit Card (Visa/MasterCard)
- Checks (personal/business)
- Please inquire about other payment methods
