Can I get just one shirt made?

Yes! We offer single shirt orders using high-quality full color transfers or full color dye sublimation.

Can I mix and match item styles?

Certainly, as long as the design will fit on each item. For example, if you have a design that’s styled to fit on a men’s XXL, it may not fit correctly on a youth XS and a new screen setup would have to be made (thus leading to an increase in cost ) Also, the design ink colors need to be the same on each item or you will have to pay an ink change fee of $20 per screen that needs to be changed.

Do you print on demand or do I have to pay upfront?

Traditional screen printing is done in bulk. However, we have programs that allow you to run a “campaign” before placing your order. Email us for details.

How can I get a quote on an order?

The best way to get a custom price quote is to do an instant quote on our website. Simply choose your style, color of item, number of items, and number of ink colors per side, and you will receive your instant price quote.
