This page should tell you everything you want to know about our DTG printing services…
All DTG orders including payment or payment arrangements must be complete prior to the order being put on our production schedule.
If you do not have an existing account with us, your DTG order must be paid in full prior to print/delivery.
Times vary based upon production load, so please check with us. For smaller orders, garment printing can be a same-day turnaround when you order garments we stock which are Gildan Heavy Cotton and Gildan Softstyle t-shirts in White, Black, Charcoal and Sport Gray. Other colors will add 1-2 days to the production time.
You will want to set up your art files to correspond to these printable areas:
- Sleeve, L/R chest or Neck area: 4″ x 4″ maximum
- Youth sizing: 10″ x 13″ maximum
- Adult sizing: 14″ x 16″ maximum
- Max sizing: 16″ X 20″ maximum
All artwork should be submitted as vector (.eps, .ai) or as high res .psd, .pdf, .tiff, .png or .jpeg with 300 dpi minimum, layers and transparent backgrounds. $120/hour graphics rate will be charged to conform artwork to these standards.
DTG is a fully digital process. There is no color matching or Pantone matching available.
We print on demand on 100% cotton Gildan Heavy Cotton and Gildan Softstyle short sleeve t-shirts garments. Pricing includes the garment, subject to the following:
Add $4 for 2XL+ sizes
Add $8 for long sleeve
No discounts are given for supplied garments. When you supply garments, you assume all risk and you must account for spoilage (see below). We cannot guarantee print quality on supplied garments and are not responsible for the finished product. No exceptions.
There is a one-time $30 setup charge, regardless of artwork and volume. The setup charge includes a virtual proof.
For re-orders the setup charge is $6.
Pricing is based upon three factors:
- the garment (either white or non-white)
- the size of the print (dictates by your artwork and the print location)
- the number of printed areas
Prices are per location, per garment:
|Up to 4″ x 4″||$7.00||$6.50||6.00||$5.50||$5.00||$5.00|

This is pricing for full-color DTG printing… not screen printing. Screen printing may be a better fit for your job. To read about some of the differences between these two printing methods, read this article.
Limitations and Disclaimers
DTG equipment limitations dictate the following:
- We do not print on garments with pockets
- We do not print on shorts, sweat pants, or bags
- We do not print over seams
If you are supplying garments, in addition to considering the above limitations, you must account for 10% spoilage.
We cannot stress enough how much better your experience will be if you allow us to print on our garments.
Shipping is at cost plus a handling fee and must be prepaid.
