Ordering 

MINIMUM ORDER IS ONLY 2 DOZEN PIECES. That's of the same design at the same size, but you can mix styles, sizes and colors. 

 

We occasionally will print orders under minimum but this is considered a "Sample Run" and prices will be raised depending on availability of pieces and complexity of artwork. We'll have to quote you on this.

 

High volume orders are eligible for discounts, talk to us, we'll work it out.

 

For stickers minimum order is 250 pieces, but note they are really most affordable at 1000 pieces (and that actually goes very quickly). For buttons the minimum order is 100 pieces.

 

Our specialty is walking you through each step of the way from choosing what type of apparel or merchandise is right for your job and audience/customers, to suggestions on colors, sizes, styles and artwork.

Prices

Our prices are quoted per piece including the Material (apparel/sticker/button) and the Print.

 

For shirts, there is a one-time set-up fee of $15/color, $50 flat fee for full-color set-up. 

 

Embroidery set-up fees are dependent on intricacy and size of design, but usually in the $30-45 range to create a sew-out. 

 

Shipping not included in prices, although we do drop offs when possible. 

 

There are quantity price breaks starting at 50 pieces, again at 100, 250 and 500 pieces. Within these quantities you can vary styles, colors and sizes of shirts but not the print itself. If you would like to vary the color of the print that incurs an ink-change fee of $10.  So, for instance: you've got a 1-color logo that you want to print on 15 Navy Mens T's, 15 Charcoal Mens T's, 15 Navy Womens T's and 10 Black Womens Tanks all in assorted sizes.Your pricing would be considered 50+ quantity.

 

Our standard for Mens Cotton T-shirts is Gildan. Of the mega shirt producers, we find they have the most responsible practices and reliable quality control. We also print on boutique apparel, hoodies, hats, bags, and kids clothing. Our favorite companies for boutique style clothing are Alternative Apparel, American Apparel, and Bella+Canvas. Ask us about getting the brand you want for the best prices.

Turnaround

The standard turn-around time on a Tshirt screen-printing order is 2-3 WEEKS. This is the time from when your artwork is received and all your materials including styles, colors and sizes are chosen, to the day that your order is shipped out. Turn-around time can vary depending on the complexity of the order and/or what printing schedules are at hand. Sometimes custom pieces are unavailable or on Back Order, we will let you know as soon as possible how this will affect your order turn around and work out alternatives with you.   Making changes to artwork and material choices is usually not possible once order is placed and will extend turn-around time greatly.

 

Rush Orders

Rush Orders are available depending on availability and our current printing schedules. We don't charge a rush fee but occasionally materials will cost more to have them shipped express to us and remember shipping express is going to cost you a lot more too. Try to give yourself and us enough time to get ready for your event. Due dates, rush or not, can never be 100% Guaranteed.

 

Shipping 

Our shop is located in Ridgewood, Queens which is also known as East Williamsburg or Bushwick area. Often we can arrange pick-ups or drop-offs in Brooklyn or Downtown NYC. Otherwise we ship UPS Ground, with express options available for rushes. All shipping costs are paid in full by you, our valued customer.

 

Set-up

In screen-printing there will always be a one-time set-up fee of $15/ screen to burn your artwork onto the silk-screen. This fee includes holding your screens for as many reprints as you need or up to one year. You will need one screen for each color in your design. These fees do not apply to our stickers and buttons, set-up fee is included in prices.

 

Color changes and specialty inks require an extra fee of $15 each. A color change is when you want to use the same design at the same size but change the color of the ink on say, half the shirts. Specialty inks that we use include metallics, glitters, glow-in-the-dark and soft-hand additives.

 

Returns 

There is no return policy on custom printed merchandise. If there has been a miscommunication about the size, placement or colors of your prints and you are seriously dissatisfied or surprised, we are always happy to work with you to get your pieces reprinted for you at a cost that's agreeable to both parties.

 

Payment 

New customers and orders over $500 will require a deposit of half due to be received before order will go into production. There is a 2 week net for you to make remainder payment after order has been received. We accept Checks and Money Orders through the mail, and won't ever turn down cash when handed to us in person. Credit Card payments are made online. We will send you an email with a payment link to an SSL processor and payment will be made into our accounts immediately. Please note there will be a 3% Credit Processing Fee added to all credit payments.

Artwork

We accept digital files preferably as vector art in PDF or Adobe Illustrator format (we are dinosaurs working on Illustrator CS4 so please make sure to save appropriately.) Also make sure to remember to convert all your fonts to outlines!  We can also accept TIFFs and JPEGs as long as they are at least 300 DPI to size (if you want artowrk 8" wide on shirt, the Photoshop file must be 8" wide under Image Size). It's an extra plus if multi-color artwork is layered by color!  As a full service studio, we offer all sorts of help with artwork set-up, but note that there will be a $30/hour design charge for touching-up, redrawing or reformatting your artwork. We do pride ourselves in making drab art look fab, so no worries.

 

We will offer mock-up digital proofs to you so that you can see how your artwork will be sized and placed on a shirt and an estimation of ink and material color. These mock-ups are exactly that - a mock up - and not exact. We suggest offering a Pantone color as a guide for color matching if you are very sure about your color choices. $15 to Pantone color mix an ink especially for you. 

 

Design

Need some help with design, a new logo, make a photo into a print? No problem, we offer all sorts of graphic design at $30/Hour. Please ask, we love that part~!
