Pricing for screen printed t-shirts and embroidered polos

Posted on September 30, 2013 by LogoAdmin2015

The top question always asked is ” What is the price for a shirt?”.  That questions is equivalent to someone asking a builder “How much to build a house?”.  Because of the nature of our business, customization and/or personalization, this isn’t a fair question to ask without giving us all of the pertinent information we need to give you a proper and educated answer.

First of all, are we printing or embroidering?  Or maybe, if the quantity you desire is a low quantity with a massive picture, we would use an altogether different process such as digital print or vinyl.  This last choice would be determined on what color shirt you are wanting.  Dark shirts would require a vinyl process and light shirts, especially white, could use a digital print process.  The artwork in some cases, will determine what process to use.  For example, if you have a lot of shadows or shading in the art, print will give you that result better than embroidery.  However, if you are only wanting something on the left chest and you only need a small quantity such as 5 or 6 than you would be the perfect candidate for embroidery.

The bottom line is this, we need to see your artwork.  We need to know how many shirts and what style shirt you desire.  T-shirt, polo, button down, etc… We also  need to know how many locations and how many colors we are embellishing.  With all of this information, we will be able to accurately quote you on pricing.  We need vectored artwork for screen printing and we need a high quality jpeg for embroidery.  Once we determine the process that will be most cost effective for your job, we can go over any set up charges that will be incurred.

Not to worry if you don’t have the proper artwork, we can format it for you.  Also, if you need a logo, we do offer logo design.   Contact us to discuss the different levels of logo designs that we offer.  Our job is to help educate you in this industry and together we will make an informed decision that will be most cost effective and practical to implement your branding.
