What is the minimum order?
Our minimum order is one piece.
Although, printing on one garment my not be
cost effective. You may
mix garments to
receive quantity breaks. (Caps however are a
different process and do not apply for
quantity breaks and pricing will vary).
How much will it cost per shirt?
The more shirts you order, the less you
pay per piece. For screen printing the cost
depends on the number of ink colors used on
the garment, the number of imprint locations
(front & back), the type of garment and the
product. For your initial order, you may
have art charges and will pay a screen
charge per ink color to be printed. Please
remember that a smooth surface will allow a
better quality print. If
you already have a catalog and price list,
simply add the price of your selected
garment to the price of printing at the
quantity you are ordering. Or, feel free to
call for a quote. We can usually quote you
right over the phone.
When do I pay?

complex artwork there may be additional film
What is process color printing?
Books are written to answer this
question. A brief description is the method
for separating multicolor images into four
primary colors (yellow, magenta, cyan and
black) in an attempt to reproduce the entire
rainbow of colors. This is done by printing
a series of dots using transparent inks,
allowing the colors to blend together.
Additional spot colors are often required
for bright colors and some images are
reproduced better using spot colors. Our art
department can help you make the
determination about which process will be
most cost effective and/or produce the best
results! Process color requires special art
preparation and we would like to review your
artwork before giving a quote on setup or
What kind of artwork do I need?
We can work from scribbles on a
napkin or a fine art painting. If you want
to avoid art charges the design needs to be
"camera ready". We can give you an estimated
on art time required to make your design
ready to go on a shirt. If you don't have a
logo no problem! Our graphic designers will
listen to your ideas to create a graphic for
your print job. For more information on
"camera ready" specifications and our art
services, please refer to the Submit Art
Can I see a completed shirt before
Screen Graphics prints them?
For simple jobs, we often proof a
color output of your design, a fax or
e-mail, or the actual films. If you would
like to see the first shirt off the press,
this is called a "press proof". A proof is
recommended for large orders or complex
artwork. The minimum charge for a proof is
$5.00 per color. If the time exceeds 1/2
hour we will bill at an hourly rate for
press time. Your sales person will help you
in scheduling a press proof if desired.
What are my choices for ink color?
We have a selection of stock colors
or you can reference to thousands of
Pantone colors which are commonly used in
the graphics industry. Screen Graphics can
use a previously mixed pantone color for a
close match at no additional charge. If you
require an exact match, we do charge $10.00
How do I reorder?
Just give us a call. We keep your
films on file and have all your information
regarding ink colors, type of garment, and
quantity on file for an exact repeat. We
only charge a reset fee of $10.00 per color
Why does Screen Graphics charge
Due to the nature of our business, we
believe that storing the actual screens does
not benefit you. We keep the artwork on film
and reset each screen to ensure the best
image possible every time your design is
