CAN I SUPPLY MY OWN GARMENTS TO BE PRINTED?
Yes, you can supply your own garments.
We will however reserve the right to not print a garment. While every care is taken to supply a full print job with no ‘seconds’, it is advisable to supply a couple more garment pieces in case of any errors.
WHAT IS YOUR LARGEST PRINT AREA?
44cm width x 69cm length. Larger prints can be arranged through appointments.
HOW MANY COLOURS CAN I INCLUDE IN MY DESIGN?
Our screen printing press holds 8 spot colours in a design.
White bases and highlights are also considered colours and are necessary on dark coloured t-shirts. For photographic and full colour designs we recommend process printing, known as CMYK printing.
STANDARD TURNAROUND TIME?
The industry standard is 10 working days.
If you require a faster turnaround we offer a Rush Job Service that may include an extra charge.
We also offer an Overnight Service that can have a job done within 24 hours.
We ship anywhere within Australia.
Please supply artwork at true size as a PDF file by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
If you are unsure on how to do this, give us a call and we will help.
SET UP FEES?
There is a set up fee charged in order to separate the colours on your image. This process includes printing the negative film for each colour used and creating a stencil, which is then transferred onto a screen for printing.
Please note: The setup fee must also be paid for one-off samples.
SAMPLING / PROOFS / STRIKE OFFS?
Printing sampling is available, but we require an instant response for any samples or examples sent to you by us.
If you do not respond within 1 hour, your job will be run in full unless otherwise discussed.
Please note: The setup fee must also be paid for one-off samples. Colour swapping fees may also be incurred if the job needs to be taken down from the press.
We use specialty inks, such as a softhand underbase and additive and solvent free water based inks.
We produce prints on both dark and light coloured garments. There is no increase in price for a soft feeling finish.
MINIMUM PRINT RUNS?
Our minimum print runs are based on the number of colours within your design. Please see the chart below:
- One colour designs have a minimum print run of 20 units
- Two colour designs have a minimum print run of 30
- Three colour designs have a minimum print run of 40, and so on.
Please note: Minimum runs assist in allowing us to cover set up times, but also assist you in covering your set up costs.
PRINTABLE AREAS ON A GARMENT?
We print on most areas of a garment. Our digital mock up guide will assist you.
Please note: If your idea is different to our templates supplied please contact us and we will assist.
Screen printing costs are divided into three parts:
Stock: The garments to be printed on.
Setup: The negative film output and the transferring of the design onto screens.
Print: The printing of the garments.
- Blank t-shirts start at $5 each.
- OPM Design charges $40 per setup.
- The initial print is $3.
- Add $1 for every colour after the first.
- Eg: Two colours is $4. Three colours is $5, and so on and so forth.
