Apparel Printing

We have several different printing options. Each offers its own strengths and weaknesses. While we specialize in t-shirts, we can print on hoodies, hats, shorts, toddler onesies – and more!

Please contact us if you are not sure which is the best for your project!

We are one of the few shops in Santa Barbara that offer Direct-To-Garment Printing.

DTG Printing is a digital printing process that works just like a desktop inkjet printer does – except instead of using paper, we feed t-shirts into the machine. We use water-based inks that are biodegradable and non-hazardous, so it is a more eco-friendly option compared to Screen Printing’s plastisol inks.

Full Color Designs

We can print full-color, vibrant design with complex colors and shading. This type of printing is perfectly suited for photographs or illustrations.

No Set-Up Fees or Order Minimums

No order minumums means that even if you only need 1 shirt, that’s OK! We can accommodate one-offs.

There are no set-up fees for DTG Printing.

Fabric Limitations

We are only able to print on fabric that with 50% or more cotton content. 100% cotton is ideal.
Triblend fabrics are also OK

Screen Printing (or Silk Screening) is one of the oldest methods of apparel decoration. It also happens to be one of the best, most cost-effective ways to print big batches.

A design is burned into a fine mesh screen using photosensitive emulsion. The emulsion blocks out the screen around your design. We then squeegee ink through the screen, which is pressed through the mesh and onto your apparel.

Order Minimums

We require a minimum of 24 pieces per design.
If you design has more than 3 colors, then we require a minimum of 48 pieces.

You can mix and match apparel styles as long as the artwork remains the same.

Turnaround Time

We require 10-12 business days to print
If you need faster turnaround, we recommend DTG Printing instead.

Artwork Requirements

Your artwork must be in vector format: .AI, .EPS, or .PDF
If you do not have vector artwork, we may have to charge a fee to convert it.

Colors & Setup Fees

There is a $35 setup fee per color (per design)
Each screen can only be used for one color, so we must burn a new screen for each color used. The maximum number of colors we can use in a design is 6.

We have a selection of standard colors to pick from, as well as several specialty colors (like metallic, glitter, or neon) for an extra fee.

We carry specialty colors as well, including metallic and neon. These may incur an additional charge.

We are also able to custom mix Pantone colors for a $45 flat fee.
We only offer this on orders of 48 pieces or more.
