No. Web images are saved at 72 pixels per inch. We need at least 200 pixels per inch to get a decent print. The rule of thumb is that if you print an image out on a good laser printer at the size you want it printed on your shirt, and it looks jagged or ugly, that's what the final print from us will look like.
YES! Although the ink can get a little thick when doing this, it is possible. Any special instructions such as off the collar printing or off center printing must be detailed within the graphic supplied and require a large enough bleed to run off the T-Shirt. Make sure that your bleeds are clearly marked in the details you provide in the graphic file
Change your order. So you want cheaper shirts. Here are your choices:
1. print less colors - this will get rid of some of your setup and printing costs. the result is cheaper shirts and a cheaper overall price.
2. use basic t-shirts - if you're not using the cheapest shirts available, and you want to bring your pricing down, ask us to price cheaper shirts for you. This will give you cheaper shirts and a cheaper overall price.
3. print more shirts - if you print enough shirts to get to our next price break, you will potentially save lots of money. This will give you a lower per-shirt price.
Sure. Nobody has sent us a design yet that we wouldn't print. This isn't a challenge, it's just a fact. We reserve the right to refuse service, but you'd have to get pretty crass before we'd exercise that right.
Yes. Simply put, silk screened shirts are printed to last, heat transfers are not. That does not mean that vinyl transfer shirts are inferior.
Remember those 1980's Star Wars shirts with the photos on the chest? The ones that made you sweat in a big, square shape between your nipples? Those were vinyl transfer shirts. Sure, they disintegrated and got too ugly to wear after a couple of months, but they sure were cool while they lasted.
Screen printed shirts, on the other hand, are actually ink printed onto your shirts. And while it may fade or crack a little bit, if you take reasonable care of your shirt, they'll look great for years to come.
YES! Our owner Ben Orum plays in the metal band ALL SHALL PERISH! Having worked with several merch companies in the past with very unsatisfactory results, Ben started WeNeedMerch.com in 2005 determined to offer screen printing to local bands and businesses at an affordable price. To this day he stands behind our quality.

We will send you a proof with approximate size and placement. Before we submit the final order to our printers, we send you a .gif file for your approval. Then it's in the hands of the silk screen gods.
We have the ability to print up to 17 x 23 on our screen presses. However, we can only print as big as the smallest shirt you order will allow. Please keep in mind that if you are ordering a spread of Small-XL, we can only print as large as the seams on the small shirt will allow us.
