Here are some things to be on the lookout for when selecting your screen-printing company:

1. Experience

It is vital to be able to trust your screen printer. When ordering your shirts, deadlines are crucial. It is important to know that your selected screen-printing company can deliver on time. When searching for a company, check to see how long the screen printer has been in business and if they have a physical storefront.


2. Quality

Quality typically goes hand in hand with experience. Before selecting a screen printer, make sure to view samples. These samples can be very telling about what to expect from your order. Also, be aware of the brands used by the company. Are they using high-quality materials?


3. Customer Service

The customer always comes first--that is the expectation you should have when doing business with any organization. If you have any questions or concerns with the screen-printing process, you should not hesitate to contact your provider. At Wildheart Designs, our goal is to make this process stress-free. We strive to treat our customers like family and are always just a phone call away.


4. Pricing

Screen-printing is most cost-effective when used for larger orders. If you need to decorate just a few shirts, consider going with embroidery or heat transfer which generally have lower setup costs.

 With screen-printing, there is a setup and run charge associated with each color and location in your imprint. This is because each color requires the creation of an additional screen as well as an additional run through the screen-printer.

Run charges are generally based on three things: the number of shirts you are decorating, the number of colors in the artwork being printed and the number of locations to be imprinted. While there is some leeway, you should expect to pay higher run charges if you are ordering many shirts using a multi-colored imprint or want to decorate multiple areas of the garment.

Flash layers (an under-layer to ensure true colors) will also contribute to cost. Dark-colored shirts may require that the decorator create a white flash under-layer before they can screen the colors in your imprint. In such situations, you would be charged for an additional color.

Provided that you reorder within the industry-standard hold time of 1 year, we will waive the setup costs of the screens.


5. Custom Designs

While screen-printing can handle a greater level of detail than embroidery, it still has limitations. If you have an intricate design, you may want to use heat transfer or direct-to-garment printing. Thus, it is important to talk to your provider about the best course of action for your custom design. At Wildheart, we have an in-house graphic designer to ensure that all the right protocols are implemented when creating a shirt.
