WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE RED THREADS TO PRINT FOR ME?
We're not in the print business just to make a buck. We are artists and visionaries on a mission to impact the earth with beautiful printing work. Then we take that same passion burning within us, and print your shirt with it! Not only does Red Threads provide a killer screen printing service you can't find anywhere else, but we are going to guarantee your order. Attention to detail goes into every piece and if it doesn't meet our standards, we'll replace it at no cost to you. We take you, and the art of printing seriously.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO PRINT SHIRTS?
One thing is for sure, you would need to be a rocket scientist (or an expert shirt printer) just to understand our pricing spreadsheet. To save you incredible amounts of confusion, just shoot us your ORDER and we'll hit you back with a quote.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE FOR MY ORDER TO GO THROUGH?
Once we receive your print ready artwork and a $25 deposit of the order, we will have your order in your hands within 7-10 business days. If you are outside of Midland, Michigan there will be added shipping time, so please take that into account before you place your order.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
We are located Downtown in Midland, Michigan on the corner of Main Street and McDonald. We share a purple awning/door with Twice is Nice; just go through the door, up the stairs, and we're in the back!
WHAT FORMAT IS PRINT READY ARTWORK?
Print ready artwork consists of scalable vector files such as .ai, .eps or editable .pdf. A vector image uses points and angles to keep your image as crisp as possible at any size or magnification. With these files all we need to know is the colors and size of the print. Any fonts used in the file must be converted to outline. Furthermore, we print in spot color (solid layers of color) so gradients can only be simulated with halftones.
WHAT IF I DO NOT HAVE A VECTOR FILE?
If you prefer to set your artwork up as a raster image, we have some requirements. The document must be created at 300dpi at the exact size of print (i.e. 12″ x 15″). It is very important your resolution is 300dpi to prevent any blurriness in the image. Web images are commonly 72dpi and though fine for the screen, they do not translate to print files. Also, do not apply any layer effects to your artwork as they will not translate to print. Please put each color on its own layer as we print in spot color and need them to be separated.
CAN YOU PRINT MY SHIRTS IF I DROP THEM OFF?
Yes, but please make sure you drop off clean shirts :) Red Threads is not responsible for replacing any damaged or misprinted pieces.
