Tangled Up In Hue offers custom screen printing!

There are a few things you should know when considering placing a screen printing order. To start, the cost of your order has 2 components:

  • the product cost (actual cost of the shirts)
  • the printing cost

The product cost depends a few different components:

  • the brand (popular brands include Gildan, Hanes, Jerzees, Canvas / Bella, Next Level, Independent Trading Company, Alternative Apparel)
  • the blend (100% cotton, cotton / poly blends, triblend, etc.)
  • the type and style of item (t-shirt, kids shirt, onesies, sweatshirt, etc)

Typically, basic 100% cotton shirts (Gildan, Hanes, Jerzees) range between $1.50 and $2.25 per shirt.

For a higher quality, softer shirt, prices generally range between $2.50 and $4 per shirt.  You only pay the price we pay from the manufacturer plus shipping fees.  

Screen Printing Spec Sheets

The cost of printing shirts and other items depends on:

  • quantity of shirts / items you want printed
  • the number of colors in the design
  • the amount of print locations
  • any design work or touch-ups to existing artwork
  • desired completion date (rush order fees may apply)

The first chart is the price for printing in one location (ex: front of shirt). This chart displays the printing cost for up to 4 colors.   

The second chart is the additional cost for printing in a 2nd location (ex: back of shirt). This chart displays the cost for up to 4 colors.

We do also have a screen fee if your order is under 25 units. The number of screens is determined by the number of colors in a design and the amount of print locations. (ex: one color, one location print =1 screen) (one location, 2 color print = 2 screens).  If you plan on re-printing an order in the future the screen fee will be waived on those orders, however future orders under 20 units will incur a $10 small order / set up fee.

Additional fees may apply when printing items other than a standard T-shirt.  This will be reflected in your indivdual price quote.

We also offer design services. Depending on your order, we may charge up to $25 / hour for design work.  If you choose to provide your own files, the artwork must be 600 dpi or higher and in jpeg formatting. It is always best to have the artwork sent in the dimensions you would like it printed, however, a larger image is better than a small one. Other design fees may incur depending on the amount time we put into fixing / creating artwork.

To get started, simply fill out the online submission form and we will contact you back with a price quote. If you decide to move forward with our printing services, we will create a mock-up of your order for approval. We require a 50% downpayment before we will begin printing your order. Keep in mind that a printing job can take between 10 and 14 days to fulfill. If you need your shirts before that time frame, we may add a rush order fee.

Lastly, we want to warn you that production errors and misprints do occur. Most screenprinters have an allowance of up to 10% misprints on an order. We offer a 5% misprint allowance. Keep this in mind when placing your order if you need exact quantities. Sometimes it may be best to order a few extra.

*We reserve the right to a misprint allowance of 5% or 1 unit for orders of 20 units or less. You will be responsible for paying the product cost on these misprinted items (up to 5% of the total order) but will not be charged any printing costs associated with the misprinted items. We will replace all misprinted items over 5% of the total order at no additional cost. If you choose to reprint any misprinted items under the 5% allowance, you will be charged for all printing and product and shipping costs associated with those items.*
