6 tips on reducing the cost of your order
1. REDUCE THE NUMBER OF COLOURS IN YOUR DESIGN
When screen printing (20+ items), the more colours in your design the higher the cost per item because a separate screen and ink cost is required for each colour in the design. By reducing the number of colours in your logo you can reduce the print cost.
2. CHOOSE A CHEAPER GARMENT
In most instances, the garment is the most significant cost in the total price. We have a vast range of garments to suit every budget - from value labels to fashion brands.
3. REDUCE THE NUMBER OF PRINT POSITIONS
By reducing the number of print positions (eg. front only as opposed to front & back, or front & sleeves for example) your print cost will reduce.
4. CHOOSE WHITE / NATURAL COLOUR GARMENTS
When screen printing onto coloured garments a base layer is required. This is to ensure that your print outcome is bright and vibrant. However, a base layer requires an extra screen and ink cost.
White garments don’t require a base layer and therefore cost slightly less to print on compared to their coloured alternative.
5. INCREASE YOUR QUANITY
Production costs per item are cheaper at higher volumes - so if you up your unit quantity, the price per item will become lower.
6. EMBROIDERY ARTWORK SIZE
If you are choosing embroidery, reducing the size/density of your artwork can help to reduce the cost if you have a large logo on the centre back.
Embroidery quotes in that location are calculated based on the number of stitches required.
