Custom Screen Printing & Design

Frequently Asked Questions

We’ll print an order as small as 12 shirts per design, there will be some restrictions on size and number of colors. We recommend printing at least 50 for best pricing.
Unfortunately, no. Screen printing is designed to be printed in bulk. The printing part of the process is actually the fastest part. All the costs and time are in the setup. This is why the cost per shirt goes down the more you print per design. A lot of work goes into getting a shirt ready to print and requires almost every employee at our company. Artwork has to be mocked up, films have to be created, then screens are exposed and dried. Next, the press must be setup and calibrated to print the shirts. Because of these factors we cannot print single shirts, as it would easily cost $175+ to do so.
We’ve made things as simple as possible. Simply choose what style and quality of garment that you would like to print on, the quantity, the number of ink colors, and upload your design/art. After we have all the needed information, you will receive your personalized quote via email in 24-48 hours.
Your art can be uploaded through our quote form, emailed, or dropbox. A reminder: vector art is preferred. All non-vector art must be 300 dpi. Accepted file types are .psd, .tif, .eps, .ai, .pdf. All art should be sized to print. Remember your print will only be as good as the artwork you provide. Review the Art Requirements for more information.
You can order as many different shirt sizes as you want and no, you do not have to order in dozens. Larger sizes (2x and up) will incur additional fees.
We stick with water based inks for most of our printing. We do however use plastisol inks for neck tags and heat transfers.
We offer a wide selection of industry leading, eco-friendly water base inks to choose from. If you need a custom color our Pantone Matching System can replicate the color you need. Check out our house inks swatch chart here.
Yes. Different shirt colors are ok as long as the ink colors are the same. You must order at least 12 of each shirt color. If we need to change ink colors additional fees will apply.
Absolutely! Water base and discharge inks always offer beautiful, super-soft prints (even on dark garments) and they only get softer after you wash the garments! Unlike the plastisol inks that start to fall apart over time, water base inks will fade slightly and become vintage.
If you need a color outside of our standard ink selection, our Pantone Matching System (PMS) can recreate any color. It’s always best to supply a Pantone color code if able as no color looks the same on every monitor. A certain blue on your display may appear to be a different blue on ours. This can be avoided with a pantone color. PMS color accuracy will always be close, but rarely exact. Additional charges apply.
Of course! We print on hundreds of different brands but to make it easy we recommend the most popular ones we know have great results. As long as we can get the blanks we will print it for you. Send us an email and we will see what we can do!

Your invoice will contain a secure payment link. Once your payments processed, a digital proof will be prepared by our art team (typically 1-2 business days). After your approval of the digital proof we’ll place your order in line for production. We accept all major credit cards or ACH transfers and Apple pay.
Typical turnaround time is 7-14 business days + shipping time. It is important to note that times are estimates and are not guaranteed. All turnaround times start when you’ve paid in full, we have all information required to complete your order (all artwork, all fonts required for editable tags, all shipping info, etc.) & you have approved your digital proofs. Delay in receipt of any of this info could result in production delays. Most proofs are sent within 24 hours, after receiving payment and all necessary information. Complex designs or additional upgrades, may increase turnaround time. The most up-to-date turnaround time will be listed on your invoice. If you have a tight deadline for your order, rush processing is available on some orders for an additional fee. Rush t-shirts orders can be finished in as little as 5-7 business days. Circumstances out of Very Good Printing’s control (i.e. Weather delays, shipping errors by the supplier, etc.), may also require additional time and are not factored into the initial turnaround time estimate.
Yes, you can! To re-order, send us an email and let us know what needs to be re-printed. If no changes are needed, we’ll send you an invoice with any price changes or additional information that affects your order. Once payment is received, your order will be queued for printing. Its literally that easy.
If a product becomes out-of-stock or unavailable during the estimate process, we will inform you immediately. We will make every reasonable effort to offer you a comparable substitution, although additional charges may apply.
