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 BRAND OF GARMENTS ARE USED?
We are able to source garments of your preference from many popular brands at very reasonable prices.
Some of our preferred suppliers include:
- Alstyle Apparel
- American Apparel
- AS Colour
- CBs Wear
- Comfort Colours
- Gildan Brands
- JBs Wear
Please contact us for pricing of individual units.
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.
The set up fees will depend on how many colours and print locations are in your order. Each screen is $40. For example, if you have a two colour, front print, the set up cost will be $80. If you have a two colour print of different sizes on both front and back, the set up with be $160.
It is important to note that this set up fee is a once off! We will retain your screens for up to 3 months, and any re-orders from that point will only incur a re-exposure fee, rather than a complete set up.
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?
We have a minimum print run of 24 units. We can print less, but a $40.00 under order fee will apply.
Printing prices incrementally decrease if more than 50 units are ordered.
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 $7 each.
- OPM Design charges $40 per setup (one setup required per colour/location)
- 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.
Prices drop incrementally for bulk orders; please see the grid below:
