All prices include patches printed with a single ink color onto canvas and cut to size; setup fees and shipping are also included. These are “punk” style custom patches made from canvas and cut along the edge. The edges are clean cut but will fray if left untreated.
|Back patches and any other size dimensions available by quote!|
We print on medium weight duck canvas. We stock black, white, and natural canvas. On large patch orders, other canvas colors are available.
Maximum Print Area
Just under 13×19 inches. The size listed is going to be the actual size of the cut patch, including any blank space around the design. It’s usually best to leave some open space around the edge of your image, usually at least a quarter inch on every side. We tile your design on a grid and print multiple patches at a time, then cut them to the exact size requested.
We can match PMS colors for $25. PMS matching isn’t necessary most of the time. We stock a bunch of standard screenprinting ink colors, so we can usually replicate your art without mixing; but the option is there.
Artwork Requirements for Screen Printing
SCREENPRINTED PATCH SPECIFIC GUIDELINES: Use common sense when choosing artwork based on the patch size. If you are ordering screenprinted shirts with a large, highly detailed image, that same image will typically not look as good shrunk down on a tiny 3×3 printed patch. Some detail can work on small patches and look great, but usually simple, bold images are the way to go!
Vector artwork is strongly preferred for screenprinting. Next best is 300dpi resolution artwork sized exactly as big as you want it printed. You should be able to zoom in at 100% and not see any “fuzzy” lines! (Please do not just “raise” the resolution of a file by opening it and typing a bigger number. If it was that easy, we would just do it ourselves, but unfortunately you just end up with a bigger but fuzzier image. We want images to be as crisp as possible!)
If you aren’t sure, send over what you’ve got and we’ll see if we can work with it.
We handle screenprinting color separations ourselves. Usually we have to tweak a few things slightly to make sure the image works on press.
Standard turnaround on custom screenprinting orders is about 2 weeks from the time the order is paid for until completion, but can vary based on the current workload. This does not include shipping time. We strive for exceptional quality and attention to detail, not blasting through orders as fast as possible. Please take that into consideration and try to plan ahead of time.
That said, stuff happens and RUSH services are available, priced depending on how quickly you need your order. We’ve turned stuff around in as quickly as an afternoon before. If you’re in a jam, get in touch with us and we’ll see what we can do to help you out.
