Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to some of the questions customers ask me about screen printing.

How do I get a quote?

To get a screen print quote, just fill out this form. Some of the details that matter for screen print pricing are total quantity of items with the same print, number of print locations, number of ink colors in each print, and the specific items being printed (tshirts, hoodies, etc.).

Is there a minimum order quantity?

Yes. With screen printing, you’re always going to run into a minimum order quantity. For my shop, that quantity is 12 items with the same print. Could be a mixture of types, sizes, and colors, just as long as they all get the same print.

Do I have to have print-ready artwork?

No. I have 25+ years experience as a graphic designer. All you need to come with is an idea of what you want. I’ll take care of creating the artwork. Note, however, that custom art does include additional fees for the design work.

What’s so special about water based ink?

Glad you asked! I print with only water based ink for many reasons, most of which I lay out here in this article. Trust me, you’ll love the end result that water based ink creates.

What is this new DTF stuff everyone is talking about?

A business big enough that it could be listed on the NASDAQ goes belly up. Disappears! It ceases to exist without me. No, you clearly don't know who you're talking to, so let me clue you in.

I want to learn how to screen print, can you teach me?

Yes I can! In fact, I run a YouTube channel and a Podcast where I teach others to start and run screen print companies from home. If you think you’d like to try screen printing, then check out my content at StartupScreenPrinting.com
