T-SHIRT PRINTING QUESTIONS

WHAT ARE YOUR MINIMUM ORDER QUANTITIES?

Our minimum order is 24 shirts, with price breaks at 50, 100, 250, 500, 1000, 2500 and 5000+ pieces.

CAN I ORDER DIFFERENT COLOURS AND SIZES FOR MY APPAREL ORDER?

For sure!  You can mix and match shirt sizes as much as you want (XXL and bigger always cost a bit more) and you can order different coloured shirts in minimum quantities of 12 units.

HOW MANY COLOURS CAN YOU PRINT ON T-SHIRTS?

Our automatic presses can print 7 colours on light or dark shirts. Our manual presses can print up to 6 colours. The minimum order size to go on our automatics is 50 pieces, so 7 colour prints are only available for 50+ piece orders.

WHAT IF I WANT SOME MENS SHIRTS AND SOME WOMENS SHIRTS?

That isn’t a problem. If you ordered 100 shirts, you could get 50 men’s and 50 women’s tees. The only change is the cost of each different garment.

Keep in mind that an Extra Small Womens tee can only accept a 10″ Image, so if your men’s shirts have a 14″ wide image, you may need to make extra sets of screens to shrink the image. This will add additional setup and printing fees to break the run into two parts.

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE INK COLOURS?

All our apparel inks are chosen using the Pantone Matching System, chosen out of the Solid Coated book. Our ink mixing system has the ability to match every colour in the book. Always remember that colours will look different if you’re not printing on a white underbase, or using one of our vintage or tone on tone printing options.

CAN I ORDER 24 SHIRTS, WITH TWO DIFFERENT IMAGE SIZES?

An order like this would be billed as two runs of 12 pieces, with all associated setup and screen making fees. Each design size needs it’s own set of screens with the smaller or larger image size. 

KNIT TOQUE QUESTIONS

WHAT COLOURS ARE AVAILABLE FOR KNIT TOQUES

By and large any standard/normal colour is available for knitting. Assume that there are several shades of each standard primary, secondary and tertiary colours.

We don’t recommend trying to match exact pantone colours as we can’t 100% ensure there will be an associated knitting colour.

ARE EMBROIDERY THREADS, WOVEN LABEL THREADS AND KNITTING THREADS THE SAME COLOURS?

Each style of thread has a different set of colours depending on what brand. Embroidery thread and Woven Label thread have the widest range of colours

Knitting thread is somewhat limited.

If you need to match your label, embroidery and knitting colours, then we recommend basing all colour choices off the available Knitting Thread Colours. 

IF WE WANT TOQUES FOR WINTER, WHEN SHOULD BE ORDER?

Fall and winter are the busiest times at both our overseas factory and our Canadian factory.  If you wish to ensure that you have toques available for the start of the fall season, please order based on the following timeslines

 

CANADIAN MADE = Order in August/Sept
OVERSEAS = Order in Sept/Oct

*Canadian production takes several extra weeks if ordering after Mid Sept

**Overseas has much higher capacity and shorter turn times.
