Frequently asked questions
Can I only print 1 shirt & why is it better to print in bulks
Screen printing is designed to be printed in bulk. The printing part of the process is actually the fastest part. All the costs and time are in the setup. This is why the cost per shirt goes down the more you print per design.
A lot of work goes into getting a shirt ready to print and requires almost every employee at the company. Artwork has to be mocked up and films have to be created. After this, the screens department converts the film into screens. Next, the printers setup the presses to run the shirts. It takes a good bit of time to setup a press to run shirts.
Because of this printing just a very few shirts is more expensive then doing a bulk order. The smallest order of shirts we do without charging a set up fee of ¥5000 is 11 pcs.
What is the most commonly used screen size?
Medium screens will cover most print jobs we do. They measure 29.7 cm (11.70″) x 42 cm (16.50″) portrait or 39 cm (15.30″) x 29.7 cm (11.70″) landscape.
What is the small screen size?
The small screen measures 10 cm x 10 cm is mainly used for left breast, sleeve or neck prints.
How much do you charge for screens?
How do I prep my artwork files?
All files must be 300 dpi or vector files. Preferred are vector files though. Excepted file types are .psd, .jpg, .eps, .ai, .pdf
All designs should be sized to print. See our file prep section for more details.
What is your turn around time?
The average turnaround time is 10-14 business days + shipping time. Turnaround time is not guaranteed and starts when we have all information to complete your order. Complex designs or orders with extra add-ons may increase the turnaround time. If you have a deadline for your order, you must let us know when placing the order.
Is there a minimum order qty?
We do orders as small as 11 pcs per design. For orders under 11 garments we will charge an additional ¥5000 set up charge. We do recommend to print at least 50 pcs for best pricing.
Can I mix shirt colors and sizes?
Yes. Different shirt colors are absolutely OK and different sizes too. However if we need to change the ink colors an additional fee of ¥1000 per ink color change will apply.
