Direct to Garment Pricing2020-10-20T16:16:48+00:00

For print clarity and definition, DTG is often the choice of painters and artists, delivering the best representation of their work to sell on t-shirts. Once set up, printing one or two more is not a big deal which making it the best and most cost effective print method for print-on-demand order fulfillment.

Can I do DTG printing on any fabric?2020-10-01T19:19:21+00:00
Only 100% Cotton
Direct to Garment uses water based inks that will never wash off or fade. These adhere only to cotton fibres but we’ve tried and tested the best 100% cotton tees and tanks to ensure you get the best looking print possible.
Are there Minimums?2020-10-01T19:17:35+00:00
No Minimums
With direct to garment printing, there are very few design restrictions, which allows us to offer customers the ability to print any design on just one shirt. Direct to garment printing is best suited for small orders of apparel that use complex multi-colour artwork or photorealistic designs.
How do I pay for my order?2020-10-01T21:08:43+00:00
An invoice will be created after your order is submitted through the Website.
If you emailed us directly the customer service rep we’ll write up the details of your order and send you an invoice. Your invoice can be paid online directly. For small orders (under $100) we require a 50% deposit. You can also visit us at 401 Logan avenue to pay in person by debt or credit.
Can you match custom Pantone colors?2020-10-07T18:59:26+00:00
Yes and No. With screen printing and digital printing we use CMYK inks that do not line up with Pantone colours, if you have a specific Pantone colour you are looking to match we will do our best to match that colour to CMYK ink. With signs we have a limited amount of coloured vinyl in store and do our best to either match the colour in house or order a colour that is similar to fit your needs. Please discuss your requirements with us by emailing sales@tshirtguys.ca.
How is my price determined?2020-10-07T18:44:47+00:00
Direct to Garment printing has no minimum quantity, that’s one of the beauties of this choice.The order cost is determined by the cost of preparing to print your order + the unit price of the apparel you’ve selected, spread over the number of shirts the order involves.
Job setup includes:
Mockups leading to your job approval
Preparation of art file
Preparation of print sheet
Pretreat the shirt ( If necessary)
Machine setup
Printing
Job teardown and cleanup
Apparel costs:
Each style of apparel has its own unit cost.
Starting at 1 piece, the more shirts printed,  the per unit price decreases.
If I place a reorder, do I have to submit all of my art again?2020-10-01T20:03:58+00:00
Mistakes occur when details are taken for granted.
Make no assumptions as yours will be one of many orders being printed at any time. With each new order we ask you to start a new email thread. Please re-attach your art files, or refer to the invoice number you want us to reproduce. If you need us to match a colour of any kind, please notify us. If you need an exact match from a previous print order, we ask you to provide us with a sample shirt, or refer to your previous ‘print library file’ where we permanently store (this only applies to customers who request the service) one of your tees from a previous order, for a $10 fee.
Can I supply my own shirts?2020-10-01T21:08:41+00:00
No. We are forced to accept that due to Covid-19, health considerations now exist.
How long will it take to get my shirts?2020-10-05T14:27:47+00:00
For a basic order with no add-on services, the standard turnaround time is 10 business days to shipment or pickup availability.
In unforeseen circumstances, delays can occur. If you have a specific time that you must have your order please make that clear to us so that we can prioritize your order
Rush services
Yes. For next day orders a 25% rush charge will apply.
For service within 3-days, a 20% rush charge will be applied.
For service within 5-days, a 15% rush charge will be applied.
Rush charges are used in part to pay for expedited shipping costs + extra efforts on the part of both our wholesale suppliers and the expedited courier charges
Read Before You Order2020-10-07T18:48:21+00:00
The colour of the shirt also plays a part. If you order a white t-shirt, the colours will be a bit brighter on the white. For darker coloured t-shirts, we will print with a white under base(pretreatment), so that your art pops as much as possible. Print results will look different between a white, black, and coloured shirt.
What file format should I submit my design in?2020-10-08T14:44:46+00:00
We prefer: EPS, AI or PDF. If you don’t have a vector file, we recommend 300dpi or larger in one of the following formats PSD, TIF or JPG. If you need us to match a colour of any kind, we need you to notify us.
