Contract Printing for Wholesale customers and other Printers
This is for brokers (Artists or sales teams outsourcing printing) or T Shirt companies who outsource printing that is beyond their own capabilities. This often includes Individuals or companies who own their own brand and purchase their own goods and then ship them to us for decoration.
This is something we do every day for some very popular well-known companies.
If you want to begin using us for this purpose, please read the guidelines below, if you have any questions feel free to call us. (770-978-2854)
Also, by clicking on the “Get a Quick Quote” button at the top of this page you can send us the details of any job and we will send you back a written quote within a short time. All Contract Printing customers are asked to read and understand the following: 1. A contract print buyer should qualify as a “business” with a business license and a tax-exempt number. This will authorize them to buy printing tax-free by the state for the legal purpose of reselling to his customers. If the buyer does not have a tax-exempt number then, as far as we and the state is concerned, we are obligated to collect sales tax on any taxible items at the time of sale. (Most labor services are not taxable but goods are.) 2. A contract print buyer should provide their own garments at least 24 hours before the scheduled print date. If not, there isn’t time to count them and alert the buyer to any shortages the distributor may have caused. If the print price is based on a specific quantity and the order is short of that quantity due to distributor error and we are not allowed sufficient time to rectify it, pricing will be redressed based on actual quantity. 3. A contract print buyer who “expects no art charges” should provide excellent, clean art and, in some cases, clean registered film. Buyers who provide low-res or otherwise insufficient art will incur art charges. 4. A contract print buyer should provide written documentation detailing all pertinent aspects of the print job to allow it to be done correctly the first time. If there is a potential for confusion, be on the premises to provide guidance during the strike-off/approval stage. 5. A contract print buyer should always be clear on the P.O. or instructions what they expect. Details about sizing or location that are critical MUST be conveyed at the time the order is placed or our interpretation and your's may differ. We cannot take responsability for details not conveyed to us. Clear up any confusion about details before the job is printed. 6. A contract print buyer, in order to qualify for contract printing must understand and agree to a misprint allowance of up to 3% of each setup/print run. This is an industry standard amoung ALL contract screen printing companies. We do not charge for printing misprints, although we do count them as part of the quantity price break. As long as the misprints are within the 3% allowance, we do not replace them or charge for printing them. If there is not time to replace the goods, we credit the cost of any goods over the 3% allowance against the bill. Our maximum limit of liability for any contract printing job is equal to the total invoice for that order. (Not the cost of the goods) Example: If you bring us 100 Jackets that cost $100 each and we print for $2.50 a jacket but for unforseen reasons the whole job is ruined our limit of liability is $250 since that was the total bill we would have charged. Due to so many variations in fabric and manufacturing processes we have no coltrol over, it is not unusual for some fabrics to have adverse reactions to the ink, hours or days after printing. We take every precaution to read and prepare for material components but poorly dyed Polyester or Poly Cotton Blends for example can dye migrate hours or days after printing. Since we have no way to predict this except by testing every manufacterers material for days prior to printing we can't take responsability for those types of liabilities. Advise:Contract print buyers should always buy a few extras in each size and specify on your order instructions how many extras you included in each size and ask the printer to replace misprints from those extras as needed, if the quantities must be precise. Blank unused goods can always be returned for a refund to the distributor, so there is no reason not to do this. In addition, if the buyer is shorted for failing to provide extras then rerunning the job to fill in shortages will be billed as a separate job at a price relative to the quantity being rerun. (In the years 1995-2022 our misprint averages have been below 1%.) Our contract pricing is based on monthly average volume, timeliness of work, and the professionalism of the print buyer.
In our years of handling contract printing, the above 6 rules have proven to be the best guidelines for a mutually successful relationship between us and our contract print buyers. All of our best clients agree with these guidelines, and when we all understand each other’s requirements we are able to offer very consistent, high-quality screen printing, faster turnaround times, and more aggressive pricing.
