does pricing work for screen printing pad printing and embroidery?
Setup not included.
Screen and Pad Printing printing cost depend on several factors
Number of colours:
Usually for each next colour add 50% on top of the price for the
First colour $1.00, Two colours $1.50. Three colours $2.00 etc.
Number of items being printed.
More items, lower the price per item.
Number of positions on the product.
For each next position add 80% of initial cost for the first position.
cost relate to number of stitches. Logo of 3,000 stitches is going
to take 5 times less time on the embroidery machine then a logo
of 15,000 stitches. Pricing also dependent on the number of garments
embroidered. More garments, lesser the price per garment.
Number of colours makes no difference in pricing but cannot be
larger than 15.
is the set-up fee and what is it for?
Set-up fee or digitizing fee is the cost of preparing your logo
in a format that the embroidery machine can read. It's one time
initial fee. We do not charge it for amounts over 100 garments.
For screen printing there is a one-time set-up fee for creating
films and screens and it is related to number of colours. Separate
film and screen has to be developed for each colour of the artwork.
Similar as screen printing but instead of screens in pad printing
we use plates.
it cheaper to do screen printing or embroidery?
Price strictly depend on type of every particular job but rule
of thumb is that small quantities multi colour designs are cheaper
to be embroidered than screen printed because of higher setup
cost for screen printing.
is recommended embroidery size?
Left chest embroidery design can be embroidered to maximum dimension
of 100mm diameter. Logo can be embroidered to the size 240mm x
240 mm but this size is extreme. We do recommend it for jackets
only and it may be too expensive and screen printing option for
large sizes is what we recommend.
is the smallest text size you can embroider?
The smallest text we can accurately embroider is about 5mm high.
How many thread colours can I have?
Your embroidery may include up to 15 different colours at no extra
types of garments produce the best embroidery results?
Close knit fabric like business shirts will produce crisp results
for embroidery. Loose knit polo or T-shirts and caps can be difficult
for small lettering and detail. But with Matchless Print you can

well can you match your thread to my artwork?
Problem with colour matching is that there is a several thousand
of Pantone© PMS codes and just several hundreds of different
thread colours. In embroidery "as close as possible"
