At first glance of a screenprinting
or embroidery estimate, some shops might
seem like they charge less then we do, but
do they? When I hear that another shop is
charging less money, I always check to make
sure prices are being compared properly.
One trick to confuse a buyer into thinking
they are getting a better deal is to split
up the print or embroidery cost into 2 or
more prices . Here is an example,
- 12 T-shirts cost $4.50 each
- 2 color front print cost $2.00 each
- The shirt is a dark color so you will pay
$.25 per shirt for a flash charge
- Finally the big cost is screen charges, normally
$25.00 per color or $50 total for a two
Now when you look
at the print cost and the shirt cost, it
looks like your paying $6.50 per shirt.
This is the price we are sometimes compared
to. But do not forget the other charges
that usually end up at the bottom of your
quote, the flash charge, and screen charge.
When you add these to the overall cost of
the order you end up with a $10.92 shirt.
At Crystal Clear Logos
we simplified the Screenprinting process
to, a garment charge and
a print charge. We do not
hit you with screen charges, flash charges,
handling charges, or folding charges like
some companies. So next time you are pricing
screenprinting or embroidery, make sure
you’re comparing apples to apples
and not apples to oranges. If you have any
