Wholesale Screen Printing

Wholesale Screen Printing

Searching for the best Wholesale Screen Printing company can be very frustrating.  There is no shortage of screen printers in the market, but it is VERY difficult to distinguish between who’s the real deal and who isn’t.  Building your T Shirt business or getting quality event T Shirts for your clients is too important to guess on the right Wholesale Screen Printing Partner.  Doing research online can be frustrating, and asking for and checking on referrals can be time consuming.  So what should you do to make sure that you’re finding the right partner?

Wholesale Screen Printing

Here are 5 things to consider when trying to find the best Wholesale Screen Printing partner:

1.  What is the experience level of the screen printing partner that you are considering?  If they have been printing less than 5 years, you may want to consider another partner.  There are always exceptions and there are some amazing printers out there that have only been printing for 3 months, but you want to make sure that you see several examples of their work before you make a decision.

2.  Will your screen printing partner communicate with you and keep you informed on each contract print job?  Keeping your customers informed during their custom t shirt printing job is critical.  However, you can’t keep them in the loop if you aren’t being kept in the loop yourself.  If you’re working with a 1 man/woman shop, communication might be a challenge, so looking for an organization that has several employees might be a better option.  Again, there are some single person shops that do amazing work, you just have to decide if they are going to be amazing for you.

3. Is there the proper balance between price and quality?  If you are searching for a partner and using terms like “cheap screen printing” or “low cost screen printing” then you are going to find partners that likely won’t meet your turn around time and print quality standards.  Just like in any business, there is a cost of doing business and if you find partners that skimp on those costs, there have to be quality issues that follow.  It might be quality of print, quality of duration of print, quality of communication etc … Finding the proper Wholesale Screen Printing partner may require compromise in terms of price vs. value.

4.  Do you like who you’re working with?  You may have heard the term “business is business” but in reality, business is people.  You may find an amazing partner that meets the quality that you want, the price point that you want and is great at communicating, but if you don’t like them because they are rude and abrupt, or because they treat you like a number instead of a valued customer, your business relationship with them won’t last.  It’s one thing if you are buying a non-custom product that requires no communication and not interfacing with your vendor.  But in the Wholesale Screen Printing business, there is a lot of interaction with your partner, whether it is face-2-face, phone or email, you will need to be able to deal your partner or eventually the relationship will fail.

5.  Does your Wholesale Screen Printing meet your expectations?  You might find a partner that has amazing print quality, good artistic design and is a good communicator, but if you have expectations of 5 day delivery and they work on a 6 week turn-around time, then you have a major miss match.  There is always going to be some give and take in any business relationship, you have to determine which expectations are the most important and which you can be flexible on.  When finding the best Wholesale Screen Printing partner, compromise is a factor, because not every company is going to meet all of your requirements.

All Over T Shirt Printing

All Over T Shirt Printing

All Over T Shirt Printing is a booming option for contract screen printing companies.  This highly customized process requires special screen printing presses and often special tooling.  The process of all over t shirt printing became popular within the music industry for album art and has flourished since the late 90’s

Unfortunately for most companies looking to find jumbo t shirt printing companies, they learn quickly that all over t shirt printing comes with steep minimum orders, often 1,000 shirts or more.  Since orders of that size are often only done for large companies and organizations, it leaves small and mid sized companies with limited print options of 16″ or less depending on the contract screen printing company that you are using.

All Over T Shirt Printing

AMBRO manufacturing specializes in All Over T Shirt Printing and has custom tooled printing presses that enable our customers to order smaller minimum t shirt runs yet still get the benefit of the impressive All Over Printing result.

If you are looking for Over Sized T Shirt Printing from a high quality contract screen printing company, please consider giving us a call (908) 806-8337 or email us.

Contract Screen Printing

Contract Screen Printing

Most companies that work in the garment industry that supply t-shirts with logos, manufacture a private t-shirt line or decorate garments in any manner rely on a Contract Screen Printing company to do the printing.

While companies that produce decorated garments can do their own screen printing in-house, it is often easier to outsource your Contract Screen Printing requirements to a qualified silk screen printer.  Here are just three of the reasons why outsourcing might make sense:

Start Up Costs

If you are thinking about printing yourself, there are high costs associated with the purchasing or leasing screen printing equipment and supplies.  Screen printing presses can range in price from $35K-$200K add the cost of the required ink drying equipment, supplies and chemicals and your start up costs can be substantial

Workspace

Screen printing is messy.  No matter how hard you try, ink is going to get everywhere, and you need to have a dedicated workspace for screen printing.  In addition, there are OSHA requirements for safety, chemical use and work environment that change regularly and have to be adhered to.

Expertise

The learning curve of silk screen printing is steep.  There are screen size choices, pressure settings, registration of images, graphic artist skills, ink color match and mixing and a wide range of other things that have to be done to get the logo that you desire printed properly

Contract Screen Printing

If you need custom decorated or embellished garments, then hiring a professional Contract Screen Printing Company may be the best business decision that you make this year.
