We can make some heat transfers for you to make gorgeous t-shirts in high-resolution full color from the comfort of your own home (if you have a heat press)! This option is perfect for side-gigs, home-based apparel businesses, or sports teams. We do recommend that you use a heat press as opposed to an iron because irons don’t provide a consistent heat or pressure. Below, you’ll find our quote guide. If you’d like more details, feel free to contact us by phone or email or set an appointment to visit the shop.
Our maximum print width is 18″. Prices are listed according to the size of the image on the “roll edge” of the transfer media, meaning you always have the full 18″ print width available. For smaller orders, we avoid material waste (which helps keep pricing down) by maximizing different jobs on a single sheet. This means that, while we can print a single small transfer for you, typically it may take a bit longer than our standard turnaround. For small orders, if you have a specific deadline you need met, let us know and we will try to accommodate, although that may require a minimum quantity and also may have a rush fee. See the layout example below for a non-contoured 2.5″ x 3.5″ image.
For transfers, we prefer a vector (.EPS) file that includes all lines as curves and cut contour layer (if applicable), although .PDF, .JPG, and .PNG can be acceptable, depending on what you would like us to do. If the file is not ready to print, we will charge a $5 setup fee per image.
Please export files no less than 150 dpi, although 300+dpi is preferred (this machine has a very high resolution!)
If you do not have your logo vectorized, we do offer that service for an additional fee, depending on the time it takes our graphic designer. Her fee is $30/hr.
Below is our quote guide and all prices include printing, weeding (removing excess material), and attaching the heat transfer to the transfer media. If you would like to do some of that yourself and save some money, check out our DIY page!
|Price per item||1-10||11-25||26-49||50+||Minimum order for normal turnaround|
|Up to 3.5″ x 3.5″||$4.00||$3.50||$2.50||$2.00||5|
|Up to 6″ x 6″||$6.00||$5.00||$4.00||$3.00||3|
|Up to 12″ x 12″||$11.00||$10.00||$9.00||$8.00||1|
|Up to 18″ x 18″||$16||$15||$14||$13||1|
All you need to do is peel the backing off and heat press it to the item!
Rush Fees, also called “drop everything fees,” are counted from the date we have received final approval for the design, which includes specific or custom shirt selection. The fees are as follows:
- +25% 3 business days from due (EX – Ordered Tuesday, due Friday)
- +50% 2 business days from due (EX – Ordered Wednesday, due Friday)
- +100% 1 business day from due (EX – Ordered Thursday, due Friday)
NOTE: we may not accept orders with this little time until due. For orders over 100 shirts, orders due within 1 week will be subject to rush fees.
If you have a valid sales tax license and your products are intended for resale, let us know. Once you send us a copy of your sales tax license, you can take advantage of our wholesale rates, which is the lowest rate in a line. For example, a 3.5″ x 18″ heat transfer would be $3 each, even if you only print 5! Even better partner rates become available once the cumulative paid orders within a 12 month period exceed $500.
We contract with a designer, but we request images be provided in their final, print-ready format. Normally, we do not charge an art set-up fee, although for designs that require custom graphic design work, additional fees may apply. If you would like any work files, the fee will be based off of hours worked on the design (image modification, original image work, etc.).
Tell us about your idea and what you want us to print for you.
