With just 12 shirts as our minimum, it’s easy and affordable to set up your staff with new shirts, or to try out a new design for your retail store. We generally have your print job finished in 5-7 business days after we receive your deposit. Rush orders available with an additional $35 fee (“Rush” means within 48 hours).

We’ll keep you updated during your printing experience with us so you know what’s happening with your order, kind of like tracking your FedEx package. We’ll send you a virtual proof/mockup for your approval before we start production.

If you need a design, your job deposit is required before any artwork can be started, as we cannot create artwork for free. Our art department is professional and efficient, you can trust us to create a great design for you. If it’s a new brand you need, and you just need one shirt, we can discuss design and set up fees with you before beginning the project.

Our design rates start at $35 per hour, and generally we can finish your design in 2 hours or less.
