PLEASE READ CAREFULLY
Screen fees are the actual cost of creating a separate film for each individual color used in a design. Besides needing the screens made each image needs a custom set up to imprint on the screen.
Most companies combine these charges and charge it to you every time they print for you. We feel that is an unfair charge. So, we ONLY charge the SET UP fee 1 time and keep that image on file. So long as you re-order and do not make any changes to it at all then you will never have to pay the actual set up costs again. Sadly, Screens have to be cleaned and reused as they are too large and too expensive to hold up to for a customer and they do damage easily. So the screens have to be recreated each time you order.
In addition to the screen fee and the screen set up fees there is the actual unit cost of imprinting your garment AND the cost of the actual garment that you are printing.
If you are printing the exact same design in the exact same number of colors on the front and the back then only 1 set of screens and set ups are needed. If you are using different designs OR the same design in different sizes on front and back then you will need two complete sets of screens. Please see examples below.
1 design no changes = 1 screen per color (NOTE: If printing on non white garments 1 additional screen is required for a white base color under entire design).
3 color design on white shirts = 3 screens needed
3 color design on non white shirts = 4 screens needed
Same design in two different sizes, 1 small chest for the front, 1 large imprint on back both 3 colors on non white garments = 8 screens needed
