Ordering Custom Screen Print & Embroidery is Easy!

Ordering Custom Screen Print & Embroidery is easy.  Read this quick blog to better understand our process and who we are.

Our staff enjoys the world of screen printing and embroidery. We live and breathe it! There is always something to learn in this industry, our work atmosphere is literally colorful, and we get to witness the beginning and ending process of creativity. Our field is in art and art is fun! One of our main goals is to share our excitement with you; whether this is your first order or your 100th, placing your order should be enjoyable and not a hassle. We just need a little help from you.

So please, before you give us a shout, make a wish list which includes:


There are a boat load of garments to choose from and yes we know it can be overwhelming. That’s why we have a catalog on our website (click to view catalog). Tees, hats, or bags our catalog has a section for each type where you can select a brand and read a description and view an image of each. After, you made your choice, jot down the style number, the preferred garment colors and a detailed size breakdown that you would like screen printed or embroidered.

If you’re still a little confused on what to choose we have a What’s Hot section on our website of types of garments we recommend.

REMEMBER THAT WE DO, LIKE MOST SCREEN PRINTING SHOPS, HAVE A MINIMUM OF PURCHASE. A lot of customers do ask if they can have one shirt printed. Shoot, even we would like to have that one special shirt printed but unfortunately it takes time to set up our automatic presses. So to charge you the time for one shirt would be robbery! That’s why we ask at least 24 pieces to be ordered so we can go to bed at night knowing we didn’t dent your wallet.


Now that you know the style number of your preferred garment, garment color, sizes and quantities, where on the garment do you want your artwork to be screen printed or embroidered? Whether it’s one or multiple locations we can do it. Front, back, sleeve, leg, butt or tag just let us know. For most top type garments our largest print is 14.5 inches wide x 17 inches tall. Of course, keep in mind that youth sizes down to infant will require smaller prints.


Next is the super fun part, the magic! If you don’t need one of our talented artists to make your image come alive, then please email us your own talent instead. We just need a little support with your files. To make this process as smooth as possible, please make sure all your files have:

  • High resolution at least 300dpi
  • Fonts that are converted to outlines or font files attached
  • Desired size you want screen printed or embroidered (if any)
  • PMS (Pantone) colors you would like to have (if any)
  • Adobe Photoshop or Adobe Illustrator file preferred

We do not recommend Microsoft Word, Power Point and low resolution files. But if that’s all you have then we can make it happen for an art recreation fee.


After you have your information ready to go then that’s it. Give us a call or email us and we’ll do the rest. Before we go into production, our Sales Team will send you an updated work order of the garment type and size breakdown with total costs and our Art Team will send you and art mock up. Just let us know if any changes need to be made or if approved. And if you’re not ready, it’s OK, just contact us and we’ll assist you with any inquiries.
