This page should tell you everything you want to know about our DTG printing services…
We can design for you ($120/hour) or you can supply your own designs. We will soon have an online design tool to help you create your garments.
DTG printing has specific printable area limitations. Please see the details below.
Yes, you can have one (1) t-shirt printed… but a setup fee makes the cost per unit on very small orders higher.
With all DTG orders payment or payment arrangements must be complete prior to the order being put on our production schedule.
Times vary based upon production load, so please check with us. For smaller orders, garment printing can be a same-day service.
You will want to conceptualize your designs and/or 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 12″ maximum
- Adult sizing: 14″ x 16″ maximum
- XL+ 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.
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 in White, Black, Charcoal and Sport Gray. Other colors will add 1 day to the production time. 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 your own garments, you assume all risk and you must account for 10% spoilage. We cannot guarantee print quality on supplied garments and are not responsible for the finished product.
There is a setup charge regardless of artwork and volume of $10 per print area. So if you are printing a single sided shirt, the setup charge is $10. Double-sided plus one sleeve… $30.
Pricing is based on three factors:
- the garment (either white or non-white)
- the size of the print (dictated 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||$4.50|
|Up to 14″ x 16″||$12.00||$11.00||$10.00||$9.00||$8.00||$7.00|
|Up to 16″ x 20″||$17.00||$15.00||$14.00||$13.00||$12.00||$11.00|
|Up to 4″ x 4″||$8.00||$7.50||$7.00||$6.50||$6.00||$5.50|
|Up to 14″ x 16″||$16.00||$15.00||$14.00||$13.00||$12.00||$11.00|
|Up to 16″ x 20″||$23.00||$19.00||$17.00||$16.00||$15.00||$14.00|
4″ x 4″ pricing assumes it is an additional print area.
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 full length sleeves of long sleeve shirts
- 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.
