What sets screen print transfers apart is their suitability for producing bold and uncomplicated designs in bulk. They excel at creating vibrant and long-lasting prints with rich, opaque colors. This makes them the preferred choice for a wide range of applications, including custom apparel like t-shirts and hoodies and more! The versatility of screen print transfers allows for printing on both flat and contoured surfaces, making them adaptable for various artistic and commercial purposes. However, it's worth noting that screen print transfers can be less efficient and cost-effective for intricate, multi-colored designs and small print runs compared to other printing methods like digital printing. Despite this, they remain a go-to choice for projects requiring high-quality and enduring prints.

Price Factors

Type of Garment
For almost every product type we have an inexpensive, mid-range, and high end option, and there are many styles to choose from - not just t-shirts!

Quantity Ordered
Due to the setup involved in screen printing, the more shirts you order, the lower your price will be as you pass price break points.

Number of Locations Printed
Each location requires new setup and runs for your imprint. A front print only will always be cheaper than a front and back print.

Number of Colors on Each Design
The number of colors in each design affects the run time and setup for each location. A one color print will be less expensive than a three color print. If you have a lot of colors and tones of colors in your design, a process print may be a cheaper solution.

In-Hands Date
Orders are produced on-demand for your due date. Garments needed in a few days from your order placement date will be more expensive than those needed in a few weeks.
