Screen Printing FAQs

Q: Will a 72 PPI image work?
Higher the resolution, better the output will be. We strongly recommend use of vector or 300 PPI images. (Note: If using vector images, please make sure all text is converted to outlines.)
Q: Can I increase the DPI to improve my resolution?
No, once the art has had the DPI reduced, it cannot be reverted. All files submitted should be saved at least 300 PPI.

Q: What are PMS colors?
PMS stands for Pantone Matching System. Give us a number from the Pantone book and we will match that to your ink or thread color.
Q: Can I mix sizes and colors?
Yes, if each item you order uses the same Screen-Printing design and placement, you may combine items of the same style.
Q: Can you print on items that I provide?
No, we do not print on clothing or other items supplied by customers. We only screen print items that are available at ApparelnBags.com.
Q: Can I use copy of images from a website to print on my apparel?
No, you MUST have formal authority to print any graphics on your merchandise. (Ex: we cannot print Nike Swoosh unless you have a license to use Nike Swoosh).Also you need a high-resolution image and most website images do not satisfy resolution requirements.
Q: Why submit vector art, my file worked for brochures?
Vector files are recommended because it captures spot colors perfectly resulting in producing same colors provided in original file. Also vector files are scalable without pixelating to any resolution. Often Quark files are converted into a vector program for this reason.
Q: Do you have a minimum order?
Yes, our minimum order is 12 items. However, you can mix different styles, sizes and colors in order to meet the minimum order quantity.
Q: What information do I need to provide for placing Custom Screen-Printing order?

Apparelnbags.com takes 10 business days for a new job and 7 business days for a repeat job (expedite service also available).
Q: Is a white shirt cheaper to print v/s a black shirt?
Yes, a white or light colored shirt is less expensive to print than a dark colored shirt. Screen-Printing requires a white layer of ink to be printed as a foundation before printing the actual colors in the logo for dark colored shirts resulting in little additional cost. We can print digitally on both light and dark shirts.
