INFORMATION ABOUT THE PRINTING PROCESS
We print textiles using automated screen printing, so the prints can be washed at up to 40°C for a long time and will look great even after many washing cycles. We can print designs with up to eight colors. Special colors such as metallic gold/silver are also possible.
DO YOU HAVE A MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITY? ARE THERE PRICE SCALES?
With 1-2 printing colors the minimum order quantity is 20 pieces. From a 3-color print, the quantity is 50 pieces. Our price scales are 20, 50, 100, 250, 500 etc. As soon as you reach these quantities, the unit prices become cheaper.
WHICH TEXTILES CAN BE PRINTED?
We can order a wide range of different brands, cuts and colors. We are also happy to procure fair trade and organic goods. Some of our largest suppliers are Continental
. We will be happy to advise you if you need any further information. Sometimes the manufacturer can experience bottlenecks in the availability of raw materials. We have no influence on this, but we are happy to help you choose alternatives. If you already have your own new textiles, you can hand them in for printing. In this case, only the printing price and a processing fee will be charged.
CAN I CHOOSE THE SIZES AND COLORS OF THE TEXTILES FREELY?
Yes! You can freely choose sizes and shirt colors within the edition as long as the print size of the motif does not change. A color change is associated with an additional cost of €15 per change.
WHAT FORM DO YOU NEED THE TEMPLATE IN?
The design can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or uploaded to a web server. Print templates should be transmitted with at least 300 dpi in the original size to be printed as a common file format (e.g. Jpg, Pdf, Psd, Tiff or similar). Gradients are printed as a raster. We can only start processing the textiles once we have a usable artwork.
HOW BIG CAN YOU PRINT AND ON WHICH PLACEMENT
The maximum print size on t-shirts is 37×53 (W/H) cm. Bags and gym bags can be printed with dimensions of 28×36 (W/H) cm. We always place your motif in the middle with a distance of approx. 5cm to the collar seam. If the motif is to be placed elsewhere, please let us know your wishes with exact details. Mock-ups or preview images are only for rough orientation. Positioning with millimeter precision is generally not possible in the screen printing process.
WHAT PRINT INKS DO YOU USE?
We only use plastisol paints that are free of phthalate and animal testing, water-based paints and discharge paints that are certified according to the Öko-Tex Standard 100.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRODUCTION TIMES?
The processing time is usually 12 - 14 working days (+ shipping time). Production can only begin after final confirmation of the offer (including clarification of the sizing, printing color, etc.), receipt of the print data and receipt of payment. Any change in the order, especially the artwork, extends the delivery time. Express orders are possible by arrangement for a surcharge. If there is a deadline/desired delivery date for the order, we urgently need this information in order to be able to plan the production process.
HOW DOES PAYMENT WORK?
In general, we only print after receipt of an order and payment confirmation.
You can pay by classic bank transfer, Paypal or credit/EC card. The bank details are on your order confirmation.
