FAQ

How much does it cost for "x" number of t-shirts?
For an accurate quote, we would need these variables:
1. T-shirt quantity
2. T-shirt color
3. Number of colors in the design (10 shirt minimum per color, ie: 4 colors = 40 shirt min)
4. Number of sides to be printed (front, back, sleeve print etc.)

All of these factors greatly vary the cost of the order. Please email the finished artwork to orders@fantasyt-shirts.com. Once received, we will send you a quote base on the artwork and quantity of t-shirts.

What can I do to reduce the cost?
One of the biggest things you can do to cut costs is to reduce the number of colors in the design. Another important factor is the quantity of shirts your order. The more you order, the bigger the discounts. Here are our price brackets:

10 pieces, 25, 50, 75, 100, 250, 500, 1000 and beyond.

Lastly, choosing light garments such as white, ash, or natural colors are usually cheaper and can help cut costs.

Is there a minimum amount of shirts I need to order?
For screen printing, there is a 10 unit minimum. For anything below that we can do heat transfers in a wide variety of colors.

Once I place my order, when can I expect it to be completed?
Our turnaround time is approximately 4-7 business days when we receive a 50% deposit and the artwork is approved.

How do I get my design to you?
The best way to get the design to us is to email the file to orders@fantasyt-shirts.com.

Low resolution images will not be printable (although you may send low resolution images to give us a general idea of the design for quoting). Microsoft Word and PowerPoint files do not transfer well and are not recommended!

Please send us the highest resolution images (150-300 dpi) that you can get your hands on. For the design savvy people out there, files sent as Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, EPS, or PDF are preferred.

If the design is not on your computer and exists as a drawing, photo, or print , you can bring it to our shop in Berkeley.

Can you print a sample?
Normally we do not offer sample printing. There are rare instances that we do, but it depends on the circumstance. We generally discourage doing sample printing because it is very expensive and not worth the investment. Most of your questions or concerns can be taken care of with a conversation with us or a digital mock up.
