What are the artwork requirements?
Artwork is a very important part of getting your shirt done just the way you want it. Great artwork = a great shirt. There are many types of files we can work with, but the files that will provide the best quality for printing are vector files.
Vector Files: Adobe Illustrator (.ai, .eps), Adobe Acrobat (.pdf)
Also acceptable are high-resolution bitmap images. With these types of files, we recommend at least 300dpi.
Bitmap Files: Adobe Photoshop (.psd), JPEG Images (.jpeg), TIFF Images (.tif)
If you’re file doesn’t meet these requirements we can help. For an small charge, our designer can work with your image to prepare it for printing.
What are your order minimums?
When ordering screen printed apparel, it’s important to keep in mind that the cost of printing goes down as the quantity of shirts goes up. That means that big orders are a lot more cost effective for you. We do not have a minimum order requirement, but if you are ordering less than 12, the cost will be more.
How is shipping calculated?
To keep your shipping costs down, we will pop your t-shirt in the mail. This means we can charge only $4 for shipping all across Canada and the US. Because we are using regular post, you will not receive a tracking number. You can expect your t-shirt to arrive within 5-7 business days.
If we are shipping to you outside of Canada or the US, the cost is $8, and it may take 7-16 business days for it to arrive. Your country may also require you to pay duty/taxes on the shipment when it enters your country.
How do I keep my price down?
- Prices per shirt go down as quantities go up, so increase your order to save money.
- The apparel you choose to print your image on will have an affect on your overall price. Apparel available ranges from economical to premium, so be sure to choose something within your budget.
- Try to keep the number of print locations low. Instead of printing something on the front AND back of the shirt, just choose one location.
- The number of colours being printed on your shirt greatly affects the price. If you’re printing a 6 colour image, but can get the same results with just 3 or 4, that will help decrease your final price.
