PLEASE CALL FOR PRICING on Shirts, Sweats, Hoodies Hats, Uniforms & More With Branded apparel, there are basically three ways to get your message onto the fabric. Methods include “Embroidery”, “Silk Screening” & “Direct To Garment Printing”. To determine your best choice, several questions need to be asked. 1) What is going onto the material (logo, message etc.,)? 2) How many pieces do you need branded? 3) Are you likely to repeat the order? All of your branding methods will require an artwork charge to create the artwork that is to be printed onto the fabric. All of your branding methods will have  a per item charge for the actual appli- cation of the logo on to your product  (shirt, hat, etc.). In all cases, the actual  per item charge will drop when the  quantity goes up. The final piece of the puzzle to consider is the cost of the item you are going to have a logo or message attached to. Prices in apparel vary by materials used (cotton /synthetic fabrics), colors, designers and such factors as long or short sleeves.
