When you aren’t familiar with the screen printing process, ordering can be daunting and a bit confusing. We love making the process of ordering screen printing as easy as possible for our customers.
To make things even more transparent, here are the top 3 things that you will need for a successful screen printing job!
1. Vector design
To make sure things go smoothly and quickly, it is easiest to start out with a vector or at least a high-quality logo or artwork. Vector files typically end in .eps, .ai, .cdr, .pdf, .svg…
The reason this is important is it makes it easier for us to separate the colors when printing, which is necessary for a screen print.
Also, vector files can be scaled to any size without losing their quality, so we can fit it to the size of the garment. This insures that your printed piece looks crisp and clear.
If you don’t have a vector file or design in mind, don’t worry! We can vectorize logos for an additional fee.
We also offer graphic design and live design appointments to create a logo or design especially for you.
Keep in mind that this may take a little bit extra time, so plan ahead in order to get your custom items on time!
Make sure that you start a project with a good sense of what your budget is and let us know so we can stick to it.
Our experienced team will make suggestions and work with you to help you get the best product to fit within your budget.
Keep in mind, that in screen printing setting up each color is very time and resource intensive, so there is an additional charge for each color.
3. Item Details
We are lucky enough to offer a wide variety of apparel and promotional products.
When you order, let us know what you are looking for and we will help you find the best match for your vision and your budget.
To set up your customer approval form, we will need to know the sizes and color(s) that you want to order so the process can proceed smoothly. (Keep in mind that plus sizes generally have a small upcharge per garment.)
Screen printing is a very detail-heavy industry, so the more details and information you have from the beginning, the better things will go!
Finally, we are always here to assist you with any questions or concerns so you can have a positive experience and get the products that you were looking for.
