Who is our typical Columbus Ohio customer?
An every day customer is looking for custom screen printing or
embroidery. It can vary from a small amount of items of one to two
dozen to a extremely large run of one thousand costume T-shirts. It's
all over the board. We do not have just one way of going about our
business. Our customers are very different from each other.
We have so many different companies to choose from when trying to
figure out which screen printing and embroidery company that we want
to work with.
What is it that sets you guys apart from the rest?
How about our reputation for starters. We have more than seventeen
years of embroidery and screen printing experience behind us.
Let's look at it this way. You're probably not going to be in business
for as long as we have been around if you not great at what you do!
Our facility is state-of-the-art and we have access to the very latest
tee shirt screen printing equipment as well as use what is considered
to be our industry's finest techniques. This gives us the flexibility
to not just cater to the easy applications but it allows us to meet
the most challenging ones as well. Many of these designs are quite
complex works of art. We take a whole lot of pride in being able to
take on jobs that a lot of our competitors would likely shy away from.
These types of requests will range from the most complicated eighteen
color images to ultra fine half tones and gradients as well as the
most tightly registered images.
What do you think it would cost to have a custom T-shirt made?
There are many different variables that we take under consideration.
Most every screen printing job is going to be unique unto itself. Even
though all jobs are going to be similar, at the same time they will
all be different from one another.
We will be glad to supply you with a free no obligation bid on your
tee shirt job and any other type of garment that you might be
we specialize in embroidery on finished caps.
Unlike flat goods finished caps are round so they sew different than a
flat item. Not every company is capable of sewing on a radius.
If you check out our web site, you will notice that it is very easy to
navigate. The on line catalog has thousands of different caps
including flex fit to choose from. E-mail us your image and let us
know how many and what color tee shirt that you would like us to quote
on. Also don't forget to let us know whether you would prefer
embroidery to screen printing. We should be able to within 24 hours of
submitting the quote request.
If I am paying for a film, do I actually own it once the job is completed?
Were not actually charging you for a physical screen, but we are
charging you to develop a film .
Once we are finished with the initial job, we will then archive the
film and pull it later for future jobs when you are ready at no
How ever if for what ever reason you you request a copy of it, then we
will be glad give it to you.
By not actually storing the physical screen,it ends up being much
easier on the environment compared to just throwing it away.
It also keeps the land fills from filling up. The second order is
normally it is much easier because we don't have to start producing
any color separations.
If I am paying for a set up, do I actually own it once the job is completed?
No, we're not charging you for a set up. We are charging you for a
film. Once the job is completed, we will then store the film and reuse
it later on a future job at no additional charge. That being said, if
you do for what ever reason decide that you would like to have a copy
of it, we will be glad to give you a copy. By approaching it in this
manner, it ends up being less impacting on the environment compared to
just throwing it in the trash and ultimately ending up in a landfill.
When dealing with a repeat customer,the second order normally goes
much easier than the first order because we don't have to do any color
separations.At that point there has already been a confidence and a
relationship developed.You know us and we know you.
Does your quote also include the tee shirt?
Yes, it normally does. When we figure out your quote, it normally does
include the T-shirt. We would strongly recommend that you let us
provide the garment.We buy them wholesale and by the thousands so it
is a good probability that likely we we will be able to obtain them
for a whole lot less than you. Once in a great while a misprint
happens or there is a hole punched in the shirt during the embroidery
process. If that happens then we can replace the tee shirt afford-ably
and quickly. We don't have time to stop the production process until
you can bring us another replacement. Not to mention that if your
supplying the garment, then we can't always replace it wholesale and
sometimes we can't find them at all.
If you still would rather choose to go out and get your own t-shirt,
then we can put together a special quote that would include the
embroidery or the screen printing.
I really don't have any artistic ability for putting together what I want on the tee shirt, Can you please help me?
Most of the time our client will provide us with art work that is
clean and ready to go.
With that in mind, a lot of art work requires cleaning up or even
in the event that your logo does up needing some extra attention, then
we are glad to what we can in assisting you in cleaning it up.
Keep in mind that a completed t-shirt is never going to be better then
the art work that it started from so good clean art is going to be
vital in order to give you a great looking completed finished product.
Can I get an estimate on some screen printing for my t-shirt project coming up next month?
That is more then enough lead time to get them completed. normally the
production process runs its course with in 10 working days of
receiving the down payment. We can go about this a number of different
ways. One way would be for you to call us and then you could actually
talk with one of our knowledgeable embroidery staff in person.
You could also get on our our web site. It was created with the
customer in mind and is very simple to navigate. Just click on free
quote request and then start filling out the necessary information
required to give you an accurate bid. After that has been completed,
you should receive that t-shirt estimate within twenty four hours of
being sent off.
I have no artistic ability whatsoever. Can you please help me out?
Our average customer will provide us with art work that is camera
ready. That being said, much of the art work submitted requires
cleaning up or even color separations. However, if your logo does end
up needing some extra attention then we are more than happy to do what
ever we can in assisting you . Keep in mind that a completed tee shirt
is never going to be better than the art work that it originated from.
So good clean art is of the utmost in importance in order to give you
a great looking completed garment.
I procrastinated too long to order these embroidered caps and need them in just by early next week. Am I still going to be able get them in time for my show?
We do have a 5 day rush service. We will access an additional rush
charge when you're given your quote.
How long does screen printing normally last?
Well that depends on a whole lot of different variables. For example,
How often do you wash it? Do you have bleach in your laundry detergent
when you wash it? How often is it worn?
The most important part of the screen printing process in determining
the longevity of the image is getting a good cure on the ink when
going through the dryer. Sometimes you can walk a very fine line
between burning the tee shirt and curing it. A common screen printing
ink will dry at about 320 degrees Fahrenheit.
If everything is done correctly the image should last every bit as
long as the T-shirt itself.
We would really like to see some samples of your work that you have done before we commit to using you for this project. Would you be able to do that?
We could show you as many examples that we have done for other
customers in the Columbus Ohio area as you would like to see.
Is my order going to be to small for you guys to even want to mess with?
We pride ourselves in our ability to be flexible.
We pride ourselves in doing the little things well. We give the small
order the same respect and attention to detail as we do the large
We're aware that the organization that requires a small amount of
screen printing is often working with very limited resources and on a
very tight budget.
It's all relative. Their job is going to be just as important to them
as a huge order is to a major event with 1000 attendants. Therefore,
we strive to give these type of requests the same respect and
attention to detail because we know that it's all important. Trying to
be sensitive to this along with our approach of delivering a fine
finished product on time with a great price is precisely what sets
T-shirt printing Columbus Ohio apart from the other custom screen
printing and custom embroidery companies in Columbus, Ohio area.

customer you can rest assured that you will receive a call back as
soon as we're done.
