Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a minimum that I can order?
There is no minimum for embroidery or airbrushing.  The minimum for screenprinting is 12.

What is Direct to Garment Priting?
Imagine your regular home printer but bigger. We put the t-shirt on a platen and put it directly in the machine. The printer prints, using special inks, directly on the t-shirt. We print on white or light colored garments.

Why choose Direct to Garment Printing instead of Screen Printing?
Direct to garment printing is good for small runs and jobs that have a lot of colors in the design. We can print pictures on tees also. There are no screen fees and no minimums.

What type of garment can be embroidered or screen printed on?

  • Shirts: tees, sweats, sweaters, etc.

  • Golf Shirts: multi-colored, solid, pique, pocket, etc.

  • Outerwear: windbreakers, fleece, warm-ups, etc.

  • Uniforms: shirt, caps, aprons

  • Caps: crusher, low profile, high profile, etc.

  • Terry Cloth: towels, robes, etc.

  • Linens: bed, kitchen, etc.

  • Bags: backpacks, totes, golf, duffel

  • and more

Can we use our logo?
YES! We can scan your logo and digitize it for a one time art preparation charge.

What is digitizing?
Digitizing is the process of taking an image on the computer and changing it into an embroidery format that the embroidery machine can read.  It is a process that needs to be done carefully so that the stitches are laid in the proper directions for best results.

What does embroidery cost?
Costs are based on design size, location and stitch count. The number of garments ordered will be reflected in the overall price. If your design requires specialty threads, it will also effect the cost.  If you would like a more accurate price list for your design, fill out our quote form.

Isn't embroidery more expensive than screenprinting?
Not necessarily.  Sometimes, embroidering a design with many colors
can be cheaper than screenprinting it. The number of garments needed can also make a difference in price. We will help you determine what fits your needs and budget best.
