Save on Price

Determining the price for each garment is based on a few different variables. This guide is here to help you understand how each variable affects the cost of your order.


The total number of times the same design is printed.

  • In screen printing, due to the nature of the process, most of the time goes into setting up the screens and machines for printing, which is what makes the cost for small quantity orders so expensive.
  • The more pieces you order (at one time), the lower your ‘price per shirt’ cost will be.
  • A good starting point for a low cost per shirt is 24 pieces, however we have people who order 12 shirts from us all the time.
  • We price based on how many times we print the same design so if you have a company logo and want it printed on 24 t-shirts and 24 hoodies, the price will be based on the 48 quantity price point.
  • Our quantity price points are 6pcs, 12pcs, 24pcs, 36pcs, 48pcs, 72pcs, 100pcs, 250pcs, 500pcs, 1000pcs, 2000pcs, 3000pcs.

Ex. 2. This would be priced as one job because they all have the same design. Changing the ink color or mixing and matching garments won’t affect the print price.


The amount of colors in your design that will be printed.

  • The more colors that get printed on a shirt, the more costly your job will become.
  • To print your design onto a shirt, the printer will need to take your design and separate each color, more colors translates into more screens and the printer having to utilize more materials and labor.
  • Full color images and complex designs require what is called process printing which can range anywhere from 4 to 6 colors

The total number of locations for printing on a garment i.e. front chest and back (2). 

  • The greater the number of print locations the greater the price.
  • We do have discounts however where additional locations are a fraction of the first print location price.

Type and Quality of Apparel

Not all products are created equally and it all depends on what you are looking for in your garment choice. 

  • For example clients looking for the most economical choice in a shirt are going to use a standard 100% cotton shirt while a clothing brand might use a triblend shirt that is more expensive but much softer and has a more fashionable fit.
  • Also different types of garments are just going to cost more blank, such as a hooded sweatshirts versus t-shirts.
