Screen Printing Information

Screen Printing Information


Screen printing costs are divided into three parts:

1. Stock: 

The garments to be printed on


Blank t-shirts start at $7 each.

Prices drop incrementally for bulk orders; please get in touch if you would like to know more:

2. Setup: 

The negative film output and the transferring of the design onto screens.

OPM Design charges $40 per setup

(one setup required per colour/location)


3. Print: 

The actual printing of the garments


The initial print is $3.

 Add $1 for every colour after the first.
Eg: Two colours is $4. Three colours is $5, and so on an so forth.


The set up fees will depend on how many colours and print locations are in your order. Each screen is $40. For example, if you have a two colour, front print, the set up cost will be $80. If you have a two colour print of different sizes on both front and back, the set up with be $160.

It is important to note that this set up fee is a once off! We will retain your screens for up to 3 months, and any re-orders from that point will only incur a re-exposure fee, rather than a complete set up. 

Please note: The setup fee must also be paid for one-off samples.

Other Fees

Custom PMS Colour $20 (if you wanted an exact colour in a design) 
Colour swap $10 (if you wanted the same design in another colour) 
Screen Re-exposure Fee $10
Rush Job Fee $80
Lightning Rush Job Fee $200


CAn i supply my own garments to be printed 

Yes, you can supply your own garments.

We will, however, reserve the right to not print a garment, we will let you know when you bring us in a sample. While every care is taken to supply a full print job with no ‘seconds’, it is advisable to supply a couple more garment pieces in case of any errors.

See our page on what makes a good T-shirt for more info

Standard TurnAround

The industry standard is 10 working days.

If you require a faster turnaround we offer a Rush Job Service that may include an extra charge.

We also offer an Overnight Service that can have a job done within 24 hours.

How Many colours can i include in my design

Our screen printing press holds 8 spot colours in a design. 

White bases and highlights are also considered colours and are necessary on dark coloured t-shirts. For photographic and full colour designs we recommend process printing, known as CMYK printing.

Sampling & Proofs 

Printing sampling is available, but we require an instant response for any samples or examples sent to you by us.

If you do not respond within 1 hour, your job will be run in full unless otherwise discussed.

Please note: The setup fee must also be paid for one-off samples. Colour swapping fees may also be incurred if the job needs to be taken down from the press.

Minimum Print runs

We have a minimum print run of 24 units. We can print less, but a $40.00 under order fee will apply. 

Printing prices incrementally decrease if more than 50 units are ordered. 

Please note: Minimum runs assist in allowing us to cover set up times, but also assist you in covering your set up costs.

Soft-Feeling print

We use specialty inks, such as a softhand underbase and additive and solvent free water based inks.

We produce prints on both dark and light coloured garments. There is no increase in price for a soft feeling finish.

What is your largest print area 

44cm width x 69cm length.

 Larger prints can be arranged through appointments.

Where do you ship orders to

We can ship anywhere within Australia.

We use Australia Post and Fastways as our delivery partners.

Printable areas on a garment

We print on most areas of a garment.

Our digital mock up guide (Coming Soon) will assist you. As a rule we print 10cm below the front neckline
