Print Colors

Do you have a particular color that you would like to print on the apparel? You will need to provide to our artist the Pantone color for printing. If you don’t know your Pantone code go to Pantone’s website and get the code. If you don’t have a set color, we can help you come up with a dedicated color for your design.



Do you have any specific sizes that your design has to be? Often when working with larger companies, they have a style guide. The style guide gives guidelines on the size and shape of the logo and how to use it.

The Benefits of Apparel

You supply them with custom screen printed t-shirts for the summer and sweatshirt in the winter. Your company name, logo, and message go everwhere they are wearing that piece. The number of impressions per day is in the thousands. It is a highly cost-effective way to get your name out there in front of potential customers.
