RUSH ORDER T-SHIRT PRINTING SERVICE

DON'T PANIC!

Our standard turnaround time is 10-14 working days on average. If you have an event coming up or simply can’t wait that long, we offer a rush order service. We will only accept rush orders if we’re sure we can complete the job in time without compromising print quality. Setting up a job for screen printing is a time and labour-intensive process with a separate screen needing to be made for each colour in a design. There are a few factors we’d need to consider before accepting a rush order.

Aside from deadline, the 3 main factors are:

ORDER
COMPLEXITY

Artwork with fine detail, multiple colours, multiple positions and garment finishing all adds time to a job. Simple single colour jobs are much quicker to print.

STOCK
AVAILABILITY

We'll need to confirm we can get your desired blanks delivered with enough for us to print your order by your deadline. Otherwise we can discuss an alternative blank to use for your order.

ORDER
QUANTITY

How many t-shirts are you planning on ordering? Orders between 24 and 500 pieces with a single print position are much more likely to be accepted for rush order jobs than higher quantities.

HOW FAST IS THE RUSH ORDER SERVICE?

Let's say you're placing an order of 100 garments with a single colour print on the front. The absolute earliest we'd realistically be able to turn around this job is 4 working days. That's from receipt of payment and artwork approval. That gives 2 days for the garments to arrive, while we get screens set up ready for when they arrive. We'd then need to reschedule all other jobs so we can move yours to the top of the print queue.

When the blanks arrive we'll count them in and get started printing as soon as possible. We'll let you know when we start printing and give you an ETA on your order so you can make arrangements to collect. If you'd like us to send your order via courier we can ship via next day delivery service. Once it's with the courier and on its way to you, you'll receive tracking updates via email and text.

HOW MUCH EXTRA DOES IT COST FOR THE RUSH ORDER SERVICE?

The cost ranges between an additional 10% on top of the total order value for a 7 working day turnaround up to 40% on top of the total order value for a 4 working day turnaround.

CAN YOU DO SAME DAY ONE-OFF T-SHIRT OR HOODIE PRINTING?

Unfortunately we are unable to offer one-off same day prints at this time but we plan to offer this service in the future. Sign up to our MAILING LIST to be the first to know when we do (and get 10% off your first order too)!

WHAT IF YOU CAN'T SCREEN PRINT MY ORDER?

If your design is too complex and contains too many colours for us to realistically do it justice in time for your deadline, there is another option. We could print your order using FULL COLOUR DIGITAL TRANSFERS. This process involves digitally printing your artwork directly onto recyclable films and coating the prints with adhesive. These are then applied to the blank garments using an industrial grade heat press.

What's good about Full Colour Transfers?

The beauty of this method is that there is no limitation to number of print colours. The images are printed in CMYK colour mode with eco friendly water based inks. It's possible to hold a crazy amount of detail, so we'd be able to replicate your artwork pretty much exactly, but more importantly, much quicker than screen printing!

How fast are we talking?

We can source high quality full colour digitally printed transfers in as little as 2 working days, which happens to be the same amount of time it would take your blanks to arrive. Depending on the size of your order and availability of garment blanks we can turn these around in as little as 3-4 working days.

How long do they last?

These types of transfers are not to be confused with vinyl transfers. Vinyl is notorious for having a heavy plastic-like feeling and can sometimes peel off after a handful of washes. The transfers we use are much lighter to the touch and have been rigorously tested against abrasion and 50+ wash cycles. They can be applied to t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, face masks, baseball caps, trucker caps, tote bags, rucksacks, the list is endless.
