What are screens and why do i have to pay them?
The Screen charges cover the cost of having the design made into a screen. This charge is ‘one off’ but please note you do not own the separation files, films or the screens. (if the design has not been used in over a year this charge will be charged again). Therefore, if you wanted to place another order in the future with the same design there would be no setup charge within 1 year.
Screen print setup is charged at £25 per screen (ex VAT). One screen is required for each different design, and different screens are required for each colour printed, each change in size or reversed images and for each different location of printing. For example, a one colour front and back print requires two screens if the design on the front is different to the design on the back. OR You have a one colour logo and the same logo for the front and back but the front is a small left breast size and the back is a big back design you would need two screens.
**** please note you do not own the separation files, films or the screens. We do not sell printed screens, we can however send you your films but this would incur a £15 (ex vat) fee for each film needed plus your delivery fee.
What is a digitising fee?
Digitising fees are charged to turn your logo into DTS files, if you can't provide the files yourself. The cost is a one off fee, you will be charged per logo and per type i.e if you need the same logo in both a 2d file or a 3d file and per size.
If you have your own files to send please make your sales rep aware, although if we have to amend or change the file we will have to charge the digitising fee as normal.
***Please Note you do not own these files, we can however send you the DST files at a release charge of £15 per file.
IF I RE-ORDER THE SAME PRINT BUT IN A DIFFERENT COLOUR WAY DO I HAVE TO PAY SCREEN CHARGES AGAIN?
No, you wouldn’t have to pay for new screens unless they are in a CMYK format, which would need to be reassessed. The only other reason for a new screen charge would be if you changed the position or size of the design.
We keep screens for approximately one year after your print order; if a design is reordered within this time frame then screens will be free. Outside of these terms a half price screen remake will be charged.

COULD I MIX GARMENTS, SIZES AND COLOURS IN MY ORDER?
Of course, As long as you have 20 garments per design you can mix the garments and sizes. If you'd like to opt for a colour change we require a minimum of 15 items per colour change. Please make sure that if you chose a mixture of garment colours you will be charged a £15 Colour Change fee if you are changing ink colours too

If someone is collecting on your behalf please make sure they bring your invoice as confirmation.
How Do I Reduce My Pricing?
If the quote is out of your budget there are a number of ways to reduce the cost: – Select different garments from the same brand they do often have a cheaper option. Or you can ask us to give you advice on an alternative brand at a lower rate.
Printing onto white garments is generally a cheaper option, all coloured garments are normally more expensive. – Reducing the number of colours in your logo will reduce the print & set up costs.
Fewer print positions = less cost.
Reducing the number of colour changes and the finishing extras will bring the cost per item down.
For embroidery, choosing a smaller, or a logo that isnt so intricate will reduce the cost as embroidery price is based on the stitch count.
Increasing your order quantity means the print cost per item may reduce. Pay more to save money. It makes sense. Honestly.
Or if we are more expensive than another company you can always forward the quote your have recieved from them to us and we can look into price matching (we cant always garantee a match but we will do our best)
Our print price breaks are 20, 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, 2500, and 5000.
Can I Get Samples
Yes, we have four different types of samples, unfortunately all of which need to be paid for.
Blank Garment Samples- single unit cost, non refundable un returnable. Alternatively you can use it in your final order.
Embroidery - we don't have minimums on embroidery, you will just pay a higher unit cost and all digitising fees upfront.(non refundable)
Screenprint - there is a flat rate fee of £50 per garment plus screen charges on top. You can see a selection of our work on any of our social media or our blog. We are currently running off some personal print samples which you can order to see the quality of print, but at this moment in time this is a working progress.

We can get access to any ink you need, we normally print in either Discharge, Waterbase or Plastisol inks.
But we can do 3M prints, Metallic/Puff/Glitter/Fluorescent/Foils/Glow. Subject to additional printing costs.
Specialist inks are charged at a higher rate and require a minimum quantity break.
WHAT IS A PANTONE REFERENCE?
For all screen-printed goods we will supply either straight pot colours or if you have a slightly different shade we will produce a pantone reference. A pantone reference is a code for the exact ink colour way we have for your print. This allows us to re print in the exact same shades every time for you job. If you have your own pantone references for your design please let us know. We do not accept hex codes so please find your closest match to a Pantone Reference (Coated).
****PLEASE NOTE not every ink process can follow a pantone reference.
I want my embroidery or transfer to match my print?
When trying to match each different application we do try our best to get the closest match, although it is not always possible.Transfers come from a digital printer so the shades will be slightly out, and embroidery works on threads although there's a lot to chose from we can only try and match as best as possible by eye.
Straight colours are easy enough to match through out but we can't guarantee a perfect match on shaded colours.
CAN YOU PANTONE REFERENCE FOR US?
Yes we can pantone reference your jobs especially with plastisol inks, you cant exact pantone reference with discharge inks but we will get as close as possible by eye. You cannot pantone reference Embroidery, DTG or Vinyl/Transfer work.
CAN WE HAVE INDIVIDUAL NAMES/NUMBERS ON ANY OF OUR GARMENTS?
Yes we can offer this for you, all individual names and numbers will be printed using heat applied Vinyl. PLEASE NOTE: if you want individual names and number the same as any print or embroidery it will not be exactly the same. It will be as close as possible; you are best of going for white or black options.
CAN I GET EMBROIDERY AND SCREENPRINT ON THE SAME GARMENT?
Yes we can do this for you, however please allow slightly longer lead times to complete this. Please note you would not get your embroidery visual on the same as your print visuals, you may find an X to show the position. Also the embroidery may be a slightly different shade to you print but we will match as close as possible.
