For more than 8 years we’ve been helping our customers raise funds, raise awareness, celebrate, make people laugh, and spread the Word – all with custom printed quality t-shirts. We have a no-minimum screen printing policy – if you want just one shirt, we’ll print just one shirt. Granted, they’re more affordable per shirt when you buy a bunch, but we understand you don’t always need a dozen or more.
No-Minimum Screen Printing
We don’t require high volume orders. If you’d like to order a single shirt, you can. When you provide camera-ready artwork, your original design can be printed on a basic 100% Cotton t-shirt for $30 +tax and shipping (one color, one location print). This price includes a $15 screen setup fee.
Discounts are given as the order quantity increases. The same $30 shirt is only $4.95 when you order 48 at a time. Price breaks are available at 12 qty, 24 qty, 48 qty, 72 qty, 96 qty, 144 qty, 288 qty, etc.

Didn’t find what you want?
Send us a photo (you can text message it to us, or email) of the item you want. Or you can send us a link to an example of the item you found online.
We’ll do our best to track your product down, or find one just like it. We have access to thousands of printable products, but didn’t want to overwhelm you with too many choices at once.
Can you provide your own shirts? Yes, but there are limitations. Find out about them here.
Submitting Your Artwork
Below are guidelines for submitting your artwork. If you’ve got questions that aren’t answered, please don’t hesitate to ask our artwork department.
If you don’t have the ability to create your own artwork, or you’d rather just hire us to make your design idea come to life, check out some of our past screen printing work and then send us your request and we can get started on your project. Graphic design fees are $50 per hour.
File Formats & File Prep
In a perfect world, all artwork files would be submitted as Vector art. Click here to learn the difference between vector and raster graphics. We accept the following file types:
- Adobe Illustrator (.ai) – vector art – Illustrator files are our preferred file format
- Corel Draw (.cdr) – vector art
- Encapsulated Post Script (.eps) – vector art
- Portable Document Format (.pdf) – vector art only sometimes
- JPEG (.jpg)*
- Adobe Photoshop (.psd)* – Do NOT flatten the layers in your Photoshop file; include all font files in addition to the .psd file.
- Tagged Image Format (.tif)*
If you’re using Adobe Illustrator to create your artwork, you will need to choose Type > “Create Outlines” for all your text. This allows us to open your art file even when we don’t have the font installed on our own systems.
* If your .jpg, .psd, or .tif file is not at least 300 dpi, you cannot simply increase the image resolution in Photoshop (known as “up-sampling”), or you’ll end up with a blurry print. If you’re creating your artwork in Adobe Illustrator or another Vector-based software, please submit your artwork at the size you’d like it to print.
Color Separations and Half Tones or Color Gradients
Submit your art files using spot colors. If you have a gradient color change, or fading, we’ll perform the halftone separations on your behalf. If you’re submitting full color artwork, we need to perform the color separations. If we don’t set up the halftones in our office, we cannot guarantee the quality of the print. Our computers and software are specially calibrated to create halftones specifically for the films and screens we use on our press. Complex artwork may require advanced separation work and will be subject to applicable artwork fees. Any additional fees will need to be approved by the customer prior to beginning advanced work.
Determining the Size of Your Printed Design
We have both standard and oversize screens available:
- Standard screens have a maximum artwork area of 12” x 18” – $15 screen setup fee
- Oversize screens have a maximum artwork area of 16″ x 24″ – $25 screen setup fee
Your artwork size will depend on the range of shirt sizes you’ll be ordering. The following dimensions are to be used as approximate guidelines only and are intended to assist in sizing your artwork for custom t-shirt and hoodie prints.
- Adult full back prints: 12″ wide x 18″ long
- Youth full back prints: 9″ wide x 13″ long
- Tank top front prints: approx. 8″ wide x 15″ long
- Left chest “pocket” prints: 3.5″ wide
- Sleeve prints: 3.5″ wide x 12″ long (standard screen) or 21″ long (oversize screen)
We will say again, consider the sizes of shirts you will be ordering when you choose the size for your artwork. Are you ordering t-shirts for both young children and their size 3XL dads? If so, we’re going to need to create screens for two sizes of artwork, or the design will be too big on the youth tees and too small on the adult tees. One screen is required for every color, for each print location.
Your artwork file should have the design saved at the size you want to have it printed on the finished shirt. If you want your design to be 11″ wide, make sure the artwork, not just the art board, is 11″ wide.
Positioning the Print on the Product
Download our t-shirt design template and place your artwork on the example at the size and approximate location you would like it to be printed. It is important to understand that the provided t-shirt template is not 100% to-scale and is intended only to communicate the approximate placement of the artwork on the shirt. You are likely ordering a range of shirt sizes, therefore the imprint location will shift slightly from size to size.
Color Matching, Pantone Colors, & Color Accuracy with Screen Printing
Due to variances in computer monitors and printers, colors shown on a paper, digital, or “virtual” proof or mockup (including on your computer screen or phone) are not true to the finished printed product.
If you require a specific color for the final delivered product, you must specify the color by providing either a physical sample to match, or by listing a corresponding industry standardized Pantone Matching System color number (PMS color) on your purchase order. If you’re able to reference a Pantone Solid Coated Formula Guide to identify the PMS color(s), be sure to view the color chart outside, in natural lighting. If your logo was professionally designed, your graphic designer should be able to tell you what your logo’s Pantone colors are. We will custom mix your ink and provide Pantone color ink matches for $6 per color.
