Which is the right method for your project? Ask yourself these questions:
- How many colours are in my artwork? If more than 3, we recommend DTG printing.
- How many tea towels would I like to order? Orders of 5-500 tea towels or full-colour artwork are best suited for digital printing.
- How detailed is my artwork? Because we print on fabric, some fine details may be lost in the weave of the fabric. That said, we will always work with you to find the best method to bring your artwork to life.
- Need help with your design? 15 minutes of editing is included in the quote. If more time is needed, artwork time is $60 CAD an hour, which is charged by actual time used.
- Order one DTG sample tea towel, with your artwork or one screen printed sample tea towel that we have in stock, for a flat rate of $40.00 CAD. Inquire for multiple custom DTG sample prints.
We do not print edge-to-edge! This is because our tea towels are pre-sewn and we cannot print on the seam.
