What garment brands do you supply?
Like all the many other professional screen printing companies out there we have accounts with the main UK distributors of all the major brands including Gildan, Anvil, Fruit of the Loom, Continental Clothing and American Apparal to name a few.
What style of garments can you supply/print on?
We'd recommend screen printing for any garments with a close knit so t-shirts, V-neck, Tank Tops, Sweatshirts, Pullover Hoodies, Zip Hoodies, 3/4 Raglan, Long Sleeve, Polos, Denim, Cotton Patches etc. Corduroy doesn't work so well so sort it out Grandpa!
How much do you charge for screens?
We no longer charge for screens, we just have 'all-in' prices
How do I get my artwork to you?
Email is best, or a file transfer service if they are large please label files clearly.
What format should I send my artwork in?
Please try to send your artwork print size 300dpi psd, pdf,tif or eps if it's vector based, please outline any fonts.
Jpegs are generally NOT very good for quality reproduction work. We no longer accept Microsoft Word, Publisher, PowerPoint formats or gifs as print artwork.
The biggest size I can have my print is?
Standard Print size is 320mm x 450mm (12" x 17"). Oversize screen print is 380mm x 510mm (15" x 20")
What's an underbase and do I need one?For example if you print white on a black t-shirt without an underbase you'll have a print that's not very opaque, more of a vintage washed out look (which might be what you're going for), with an underbase the print will be a bright white and very opaque. To keep it simple if your job is on black t-shirts we generally print an underbase anyway and the underbase cost is included in any quote you may receive. Unless you instruct us not to print with an underbase.
Do you print Water-based and discharge inks?Yes! We can print with water-based inks on light garments and discharge inks on dark garments. Getting exact colour matching with discharge is tricky so please allow for this if you request discharge inks, although the finish far outweighs any variation in colour in our opinion. We more often than not use discharge for our underbases so even with plastisol on top you have a very soft hand finish to the print.
Can I mix the item types and sizes in my order?
Yes of course we aren't one of those companies that charge more if you have different sizes.
How long does it take?
Normally allow 7-10 working days from payment/proof but if you need them quicker just let us know as we can often turnaround jobs much quicker. Please note refinishing services such as neck label printing will add to the turnaround time of your job. We will indicate the delivery date on your order confirmation sheet.
What's the minimum order of screen printed shirts?
Depends on the job, but normally 10 for a 1 colour print. It only starts to get cost effective when you get to 25 or 50 garments.
What payment methods do you accept?
Credit card and BACS/online bank transfer, Cash or cheque and Paypal (we reserve the right to make a 2.5% surcharge on paypal payments just because of the fees charged to us).
Will I have to pay for my order up front?
Yes please. We will be unable to start your job until full payment is received.
How much do you charge for delivery?
All online offers include FREE Delivery, all quotes will have delivery charge stated if applicable. We don't normally charge delivery to UK mainland.
How does online ordering work, what about a proof?
Once you've placed your order online for one of our offers we will check all the job details and send you an order confirmation pdf via email, this has all the job information including garment info, sizes, print size, print colour & print location etc. Only when you've agreed/seen/checked this order confirmation do we proceed to print. This insures what we deliver to you is exactly what you asked for.
Do you offer finishing services?
Yes, we offer many merch finishing services including folding & bagging, de-tagging & relabelling services, neck label screen printing, hem tag sewing, swing tags & kimballing. Please contact to let us know what you want.
