Explanation of Services

Digital Printing:

Choose this process if you need shirts fast! Digital Printing is an ink jet process. You may print any colors in any combination for one flat rate, however we cannot print opaque white ink (all whites in the design take on the color of the shirt). This service is quick, and often can be completed the same day the order is placed. This process comes out best on light colored garments.

Silk Screening:

Choose this process if you need a large amounts of shirts. Silk Screening is an opaque, layered process. Each design is separated into colors, and each color is printed one on top of the other. Silk Screening offers the most vibrant colors, and looks great on any garment. Although there is a set-up fee for each color, the service itself can become very cheap with our quantity discounts!

Embroidery:

Choose this process if you need work uniforms with a professional look. Embroidery is a sewing process. Embroidery can use any combination of colors, and can be sewn on just about any fabric. Once we have your logo on file, uniforms may be re-ordered anytime without any digitization cost.

Personal Names and Numbers:

This service is great if you are on a sports team! If you are looking for team uniforms that have different numbers and names on every garment, you have two options. Digital Printing is the cheapest and fastest method to personalize your team gear- at the additional cost of only $1.00 per name, it cannot be beat. However, silk screened letters and numbers are available at the cost of $1.00 per digit.

Re-Touch, Redraw and Digitization:

All orders come with a free re-touch service! If your artwork is almost print ready, and can be converted to our formats in less than 15 minutes, there is no charge. If your artwork is not ready, you still have options! Our friendly staff can guide you in preparing artwork, or even prepare for you ourselves.
