Behind the Investment
Screen printing is one of the most common techniques for printing garments and other accessories in the merchandise industry. However, it's a labor intensive process that takes great skill and attention to detail, if you do it correctly.
Many shops provide a pricing list based off of a few factors: order quantity, number of print locations, and number of print colors. It's always a great idea for customers to shop around and review pricing sheets to ensure that they are getting the best deal. However, it's very likely that the most cost effective printer may not yield the best quality of work. It's important to remember that in this industry you truly get what you pay for.
Garment Cost + Setup Cost + Print Cost + Shipping Cost
= Your Total Cost
Why do we charge a setup fee? Setting up for a screen print job requires a screen (stencil) for each color in the design, and setting up just one screen is at least a 6-step process. This process takes time (about 6-12 hours per screen depending on the equipment the screen printer has on hand) and requires the use of consumable materials so that the screens can be reclaimed for future jobs.
Is the print cost affected by the garment type? The short answer is, yes. At Good Neighbor we charge slightly more to print on sweatshirts/fleece items than we do on t-shirts/long sleeves because sweatshirts and fleece are a little trickier to print and require the use of a special adhesive to keep the garment from moving on press and ruining the print. We don't cut corners when it comes to printing on a variety of garment types.
The Bigger Picture
At Good Neighbor our pricing is reflective of the high quality products we use in the printing process, as well as the level of attention we put into every single print. We know that we are not the cheapest, but we're confident you'll find our prices reflect the craftsmanship that goes into your order. We use top-of-the line inks, we are diligent about our quality, and most importantly everything is printed by hand right here in Kansas City. Printing by hand allows us to print every single piece with care and unmatched quality control.
