All that being said, one of the most common questions we receive when it comes to custom t-shirt printing and custom apparel, is how does pricing work?
For those unfamiliar with t-shirt printing, it can be confusing as to how the pricing actually works.
Today, we’ll cover how custom t-shirt printing pricing works.
How Custom T-Shirt Printing and Custom Apparel Pricing Works
While many assume the pricing is simply based on the total amount of shirts, that’s only partially true. There is a factor that plays a bigger role in the price than the actual total quantity: The total amount of colors in the shirt.
How Total Colors Effect T-Shirt Printing & Custom Apparel Pricing
Each time a new color is added to the shirt, it adds to the total pricing of the order.
For example, a shirt with just 1 color will be priced lower than a shirt with 2 colors, and so on.
This is always a good thing to understand for those working within a budget. Sometimes a shirt with 5 colors may be out of the budget. However, a shirt with 3 or 4 will work within the budget.
Of course, while the colors play a very big role in determine pricing, the quantity also is of importance, along with the size of the shirts.
Overall, pricing for t-shirt printing and custom apparel would be determined in this order:
- Total Colors
- Total Quantity
Total Shirt Quantity
When it comes to quantity, the more shirts ordered, the lower the price per shirt will be. The one great thing about working with Global Promo is we handle all orders at our facility. Other companies may outsource the work. This results in longer production times and lower quality.
What this means for you is we can handle smaller order sizes for those interested in either starting small or making a smaller order.
Last comes the sizes of the shirt. When ordering a size extra small-extra large, the price will remain the same. For those ordering any sizes smaller or larger, the price will increase slightly.
Custom T-Shirt Printing & Custom Apparel Pricing: Putting it All Together
When putting it all together, the price will be based on the total colors in the design, the total amount of shirts ordered, and the sizes of the shirt. What’s great about understanding this is if you have some flexibility with either your design or the quantity, it is possible to use this knowledge and be able to receive a different price.
