EMBROIDERY AND SCREEN PRINTING

how to order

1. make a plan

Think about what you want. What product would you like decorate, and what would you like on it. If it is a special event, or a but you aren’t sure what to do: take a look on Pinterest or Google image search for some ideas. Take a look at our garment sales page to browse the diverse options of garments and accessories we can source for you. Think about what sizes you will need. Are there youth sizes, or women’s sizes needed. What colour would you like? Do you have a budget? Example: you need uniforms for your new small business, but only want to spend max $25/ garment. By letting us know of any budget considerations we can help you find a product and decoration that will suit your needs completely. What is your timeline (is there an event date we need to know about?)

2. prepare your artwork

In order to make your ideas a reality we need “good art”. Generally that means vector format graphics. This file type will be .ai, .eps, .cdr and sometimes .pdf. However, if all you have are .jpg, .bmp, .png, or a printed hard copy our graphic artists can work with that, but be aware that the time it takes to do that will cost $35/hour. Billable time will vary depending of the complexity of the graphic. Minimum charge is 30 min.

3. pick your clothing

This can be as simple as knowing you want white t-shirt, and as complex as 20 different staff members all getting the company logo on their own choice of gold shirt and hat. Unfortunately, many of our distributors do not put prices on their websites. Sometimes,a jacket that you thought would be perfect might be break your teams annual budget. This is where we can help. We know these catalogues like the back of our hands, and can suggest suitable alternatives if the selected products will not work.We have lots of samples of the most popular product in our showroom in Genelle, so don’t hesitate to come in person to see the goods and talk order details in person.

7. Attach your artwork files, or an image of what you need on the garment/object. This is super important for us to estimate if/how many art hours will be needed, how many colours/stitches, and how many placements you require.

***REMEMBER the more information you give use, the quicker we can process the order, and get to the fun stuff. If you are unsure on the fit or feel of something that we do not already have in store we are happy to being in samples/sizing kits. For expensive, or specialized items the cost of these must be paid as a deposit, and will be applied to your order once it is confirmed.
