When it comes to screen printing let your quantity be your guide to how many print colors you want on your design. The less ink colors used in the a custom t-shirt design, the less it costs. So a single color print is going to be more cost effective than a 6 color print. With that being said, if you are ordering custom t-shirts and your quantity is going to be between 12 and 24 shirts, you almost always want to keep that to a single color front and back print or a two color front print. When you get into 3 or more colors on that small of a quantity the shirts can become cost prohibitive. You want cost effective, you are looking for cheap. In addition, white t-shirts are the least expensive and colored shirts are the most expensive with a few shades of grey falling in the middle. You can order a few thousand shirts with a 6 color print and it will be just as economical as a 12 shirt order with a single print. The key is to match the quantity with the print color for the best custom t-shirts for cheap.
One thing Kirkwood Trading Company does is provide their customers with options when they give a price quote to a customer who is uncertain of what they want. Often times a customer is looking for a higher quality t-shirt and screen print but has a lower budget. By giving them options they can pick and choose what is more important to them and choose options to match their budget. Sometimes a customer has to have a higher quality softer shirt and they can sacrifice and eliminate some print colors to meet their shirt budget.
