There are price breaks based on the order quantity( for example at 12, 24, 48, 72 etc) The more you order, the less your price per shirt will be. Shirt decorating is a manufacturing process and the number of shirts made each time effects the price per shirt. There are price breaks based on quantity, that are calculated EACH TIME YOU ORDER, BASED ON THAT ORDER SIZE. If you order 24 shirts on your first order, and receive the 24 piece discount, then order 5 shirts the second time, the second order will not receive the same discount. If you are gathering sizes from your group or organization, get them ALL before you finalize your order. Give them a deadline ahead of the actual deadline so the inevitable stragglers don’t delay your order, or force you to place a second order costing you extra dollars.
Our normal turnaround to produce an order of shirts is two weeks. Often, we get them done much faster than that. Depending on schedule load, and seasonal forces, orders that need to be done quicker can incur rush charges. These are a percentage of the order total ( ranging from 10% to 100% in extreme cases) and are based on how fast the order must be produced and what hoops must be jumped through to make it happen.
Many shirt shops and websites claim they do not charge for setup. A more honest way to state it is that the set up charges are calculated into the per shirt price. Each design that is printed on the shirt adds cost, and each color in each design adds cost. A short run of shirts with multi-color designs in two or more locations will be much more expensive than the same shirt with one design, or all of the printing in a single color.
Embroidery pricing is based on stitch count (price per thousand stitches). Large blocks of solid color increase the stitch count dramatically. A normal left chest design is 5000-8000 stitches. If you put a solid background behind it will jump to over 20,000 stitches which could add 4.00 to 8.00 per shirt in cost
