What are some tips for saving money on t-shirts?

Do you ship to Canada?

Unfortunately, we do not ship to Canada.

How does the design process work?

We can customize one of our pre-made templates with your personal details, or we can create a design completely from scratch. You’ll work with a member of our design team directly, and you can make as many changes to the design as needed until it’s exactly right—all for free.

What if I need to order under the 12 minimum?

We don’t recommend ordering less than 12 shirts at a time because screen printing is done in bulk. A $10 shirt produced on its own can easily cost $50.

Since your shirts are printed in bulk, the cost gets cheaper the more shirts you order. The costly part is in the setting up of your shirt production. Your design goes from film, to screen, to print, and each color needs its own film as well. It’s very rewarding to see the end product but it’s also a complicated process.

This is also why every design is priced separately.

Can I get a sample?

Sure thing. We can help you choose what’s best whether it be sizing or colors.

Call to request a sample and we’ll get it right out to you – 888.812.4044. Some charges apply.

What types of apparel are available?

Can I get different color shirts within a single order?

Yes, Please do!

Different Colored shirts are a great way to identify younger kids from older ones. You could assign each grade their own color if you like!  It sure makes for a colorful VBS!

Another example…use different colors for your staff: staff Blue and the kids Green.  Make it easy for anyone to find someone in charge!

One Note: Some designs just don’t look good on certain colors but our friendly designers can help you find the colors that work the best for your church

In the picture below we used 8 different colors within a single order, each color identified a specific group during vacation bible school.

Can I print over seams or zippers?

We can’t print over seams or zippers because your design won’t come out just right. The machine needs a flat surface to guarantee a clean even layer of ink. Any uneven surfaces will cause the ink to build up in some places or not print at all in others.
