What is Screen Printing?
Screen printing involves creating a stencil (printers call this a “screen”), and then using that stencil to apply layers of ink on the printing surface. Each color is applied using a different stencil, one at a time, combined to achieve the final look.
Our minimum for screen printing is 24 however, we offer other processes like Direct-To-Garment which allows for less than the minimum quantity.
Our standard turn around time for screen printing is 5-7 business days with all orders being delivered within 10 business days. Rush services are available and in some cases we are able to do a next day rush.
We can ship a sample, unprinted item to you for a small fee. The sample will generally arrive within 1-2 business days. If you need a printed or embroidered sample, please call us at (954) 304-3240. There is a significant setup time required for these samples, so the cost can vary.
We use the PMS Pantone Color Matching system to ensure the closest match to what you’re looking for. Virtual proofs and/or mockups will be emailed for approval prior to production. Because all monitors and devices display colors differently, we use the Pantone colors to ensure accuracy. If you don’t know which Pantones to use, we have a full art department available to assist you.
To ensure the highest quality print, we recommend using the highest quality Vector artwork files to begin with. These include formats such as .AI Illustrator, .EPS or Vector PDF files. We can use raster (pixel-based) formats such as .PSD Photoshop, JPEG, or PNG as long as they are high-resolution (300 dpi) at size.

The price per shirt depends on a few variables within your order.
- Type Style of Garment
- Number of ink colors in the artwork (more ink colors, the greater the cost)
- Number of print locations for the design
- Quantity of shirts in the order (the more shirts you order, the less you pay per shirt)
