How much does a shirt cost?
We get asked this a lot and it's a hard question to answer! Screen printing is custom, from designing the artwork to choosing a garment, so no two jobs are alike.
Our prices are based on how much the garment costs and how many colors the art has. Since quoting is a case-by-case basis we recommend giving us a call or setting up an appointment to drop in!
Here is a link to our pricing guide to give you an idea of our pricing structure.
Can I just drop by to go over my project?
A & G loves working with their customers but highly suggests making an appointment before dropping by. We want to make sure you have our undivided attention so we can help make some great shirts. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 415-482-6536 to schedule a time to come by.
What format should I send my artwork in?
Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop are our preferred formats. Any other format should be as high resolution as possible, sent sized to print, and at least 300 DPI.
Vector files should have all fonts outlined or the font file provided.
Photoshop photos should be saved with layers.
Pantone colors must be specified at time of printing. Pantone matching is $15.00 per color.
Can I fill out a form to get all my projects information in to you?
We have a simple to use google doc you can input all the information you want to tell us.
I only need a couple shirts. Can I put in a small order?
A & G has a 24 piece minimum.
For smaller runs we can do a heat transfer where the image is printed on a special thin, flexible material and applied via heat press to a garment.
What brands do you carry?
A & G has great connections with several vendors which provide hundreds of different brands of garments, bags, and accessories. Please reach out to us if you're looking for something in particular! Take a look at a couple of our vendors garment options by clicking on the links below.
May I bring my own garments?
Yes! You may supply your own garments for printing as long as they are brand new and unwashed. Used, old, soiled, or washed garments will not be accepted as the ink may not adhere to them well.
When supplying your own garments A & G retains a 3% loss rate. Any losses under 3% of the entire order is not covered by A & G. Anything over will be reimbursed accordingly.
What's your production schedule look like?
A & G is open Monday through Friday from 9:00AM to 4:30 PM. Turnaround time from approval of estimate and mockup is 7-10 business days. Rush service is dependent on availability, with an additional fee.
Do you ship?
A & G gladly assists with domestic shipping via FedEx or UPS. You may also provide your FedEx or UPS shipper accounts and we can ship blind. We do not ship international.
How does payment work?
All new accounts are COD. We require a 50% deposit by check or card to start a job, and the balance due upon completion. All credit card payments over $500.00 are subject to a 3% service charge. Pay with cash or check to avoid this surcharge.
