Cost Cutting Tip’s
One of the most asked questions
we get at CCL are “How can
I lower the cost?” Here are
a few of tips to consider before you place
- Quantity: The more shirts you order the
lower the cost. If you only need 12 shirts
per order, maybe you could consider buying
2 or 3 orders at one time. This could cut
your per shirt cost in almost half.
- Colors: Keep the number of colors in your
design down to a minimum. With most designs
we try to keep the number of colors from
1 to 3 if cost is an issue. We can also
use shades of these colors. This gives the
art more depth and simulates more color.
(See the Fire Engine in our Image Gallery.)
- Low Stitch Count: Embroidery is charged
by every 1000 stitches in your design. An
easy way to keep the number of stitches
down is to let your shirt color shine through.
If your logo for instance is black, red
and white. You could order red polo shirts
and only have to use black and white thread
in your design.
- Keep it Simple: With the amount of clip
art galleries and low cost design programs
on the market today we are seeing more and
more multicolor, intricate logos and designs
coming into our shop. It’s easy to
get carried away with design ideas that
turn out in the end to be very costly. Although
we love to print large multicolored designs,
it might do you some good to see what the
cost of your print will be during the design
- Garment Type: The price difference between
a 50/50 poly cotton t-shirt, and a 100%
heavyweight cotton t-shirt could be as much
as $2.00. You need to keep in mind how the
shirt will be used. Are they going to be
worn every day as a uniform or be used as
a give away.
As you can see with a little
bit of preorder planning and with the help
of our staff we can go a long way toward
providing you with an order that suits your
