We use the best equipment and the best inks to produce the greatest quality product at the most affordable prices.

Tag Removal + Printing
Custom printed or sewn in tags/labels are a great way to get make your clothing or apparel look “custom” or “high end” right from the first impression. We recommend keeping your custom tag designs to one color. Some t-shirt fabrics are thinner than others and can be more prone to having a printed tag show or bleed through the backside of the shirt. To avoid this, we recommend printing your tags in a color which will minimize the “show-through” or “bleed-through” effect. Most grey tones tend to work well on most colors.
Please be cautious not make your tag typography or words so tiny they will not be printable! (we recommend 12 point and above)
WHEN DESIGNING YOUR TAGS PLEASE KEEP IN MIND
It is required by the US Government that the following information be included in all garments:
- % of Material
- Country of Origin (for the garment, not your brand)
- Care Instructions
These government requirements are non-negotiable. We are unable to print “Printed in the US” or “Processed in the US” instead of listing what country of origin the shirt is manufactured in. Custom shirt tags *must* have the country of origin’s information on the garment. If you are unaware of the information needed for the shirts you are ordering, please leave your tag files editable and add place holders for the information. When you submit your artwork, please submit the editable tag file (PSD or AI files) as well as the fonts that you used to create the tag. In most cases, its best to make sure that your fonts are ‘outlined’ in illustrator or your vector app before exporting to AI or EPS.

Folding and Poly Bagging
A great way to keep your products and apparel clean, neat, and organized is to have them folded and poly bagged. Your shirts will be ready to ship to your clients and we even include a sizing sticker on each bag for easy inventory management.
Pricing ranges from $0.50 to $1.25 per shirt depending on quantity, and includes folding, poly-bagging, and size-relabeling with a size sticker. Make sure to notify us of this when asking for quotes.
