Pricing can be confusing
even for those of us in the industry. The
screen-printing and embroidery industry
is by no means uniform in its methods. Some
shops charge per screen, as well as per
color. Others charge art fees and art setup
fees, each time the same job is run! Beware
of hidden costs.
We try and make pricing
simple and straightforward, with no surprises.
We have NO screen fees and one art prep
charge. Once you pay for your art prep you
never have to pay for it again (we keep
it on file). So here is how it works:
So, let's say you want a big smiley face on the front of 72
white T-shirts (prices of darker shirts and colors differ).
• Cost of garments---------------------3.10ea.
• Cost per print(2 colors on front)-------3.25
• Total per garment----------------- $ 6.35
If you wanted
that smiley face on the back as well as the front, it would
cost you another $3.25. Now the total price of the shirt would be $ 7.00.
• Cost of garment----------------------------3.10ea.
• Cost per print (2 color on front)---------3.25
• Cost 2nd placement(2 color on back)---3.25
• Total per garment----------------- $9.60
So you could say it is
"cost per color per placement"
If you want black and yellow ink on the
front and on the back, that is a 4 color.
A one time art charge would
be added to your first order of smiley face
shirts, after that, any time you order smiley
face shirts there is NO art charge.
Now if you want half of
your smiley face shirt order to be in yellow
and black, and the other half to be printed
with pink and black, you would pay an "ink
change charge". It is a very
small fee to cover the time and labor of
cleaning the screens and changing the ink.
PRICE BREAKS! DISCOUNTS! SAVINGS!
This is the fun part. The
more you order, the less expensive the prices.
You get two price breaks with Crystal Clear
Logos. First you receive a savings on the
price of your garment (no, you don't have
to order all the same thing). If you order
3 T-shirts, 4 sweatshirts, 10 button-down
shirts, and a Henley, you would get the
discount for ordering 18 garments. You would
also receive a discount for screen-printing
on 18 shirts, as opposed to 12, that is
if the same size image can go on all of
your garments without us having to reset-up
your screens. Because we have an automatic
press, as well as a manual, the savings
on large orders is substantial.
