Pre-printing is a great way to avoid delays and long lines. We can print any number of garments prior to the event and print the remainder live. We can also pre-print sponsor logos or other designs prior to the event.

How much lead time do you require?

We ask that you book us at least 4 weeks before your scheduled event.

Can I provide my own artwork?

Yes! We can work with your existing artwork or create original designs for your event at no cost!

Recommendations to make your event run smoothly

  • Simpler is better. The best events are ones with just a couple of options. The process is quicker and people get their order without waiting in a long line.
  • When choosing shirt colors, we recommend light shirts with a dark print for best results.
  • Pre-printing a portion of shirts before the event can reduce lines and delays. With pre-printing, we can have a large number of shirts for the event and still give guests an interactive experience with the production process. We will determine how many pre-prints will be necessary based on your event specifications.
  • We ask for a 12' x 12' area for our setup but it's a good idea to allocate more space as live printing can be a popular attraction!
  • It must be at least 65°F outside for our shirt dryer to work effectively.
