Screen Printing Questions


Can I choose different color shirts with an order?
Yes, you can mix and match different sizes & colors. Your price per piece will only change between dark or light color shirts. Dark Color shirts are more expensive to print than light colors.

If I order 100 apparel items, can I split them into two different graphics and still receive 100 quantity pricing?
No, because it is not 100 quantity. It is two orders of 50 quantity and that is how it would be priced. Orders are based on graphic setup, (SCREENS) not total quantity. This situation results in twice the setup, twice as many screens, and twice the run time.

Wide Format Printing Questions


Do you do vinyl or digital signs?
We can do both. Usually when its something simple like 1 - 4 spot colors we do them vinyl. When its a lot of colors we make them digital. Or you can just choose which ever you like best.

What if I order a large quantity of signs?
If you order more than 10 signs we screen print them because it is faster and cheaper for you.

Why can't I submit my job in RGB color mode?
A lot of the colors you create in RGB mode are not achievable using standard four-color process printing. If you submit your job in RGB color mode, we will convert it before it goes to press, which will lead to color shifts that you may not be happy with. It is always best to create your document from the start in CMYK format to ensure that you have a better idea of how your colors are going to print.

Why did the colors print differently from the colors on my monitor?
Monitors display colors in RGB... not CMYK. As well, most monitors are not calibrated for color accuracy. There is also a wide range of gamma differences in PCs, Macs and various manufacturers of monitors. Room lighting can also have an impact of your perception of color. Leave the color to us - we're the experts!

What are the bleed requirements?
All files must include a 1/8" (0.125 inch) bleed regardless if your design bleeds to the edge or not. An example of bleed setup for a 4" x 6" postcard would be 4.125" x 6.125".
What are your resolution requirements?
All rasterized (bitmap) images must be at least 300 dpi. However, 400 dpi for photo images and 1200 dpi for text and line art is highly recommended. "
Can I include front and back images in 1 file?
Each side of your artwork must be in a separate file. Do not put both front and back in the same file.
