We at Big D Custom aren't just one of many custom t-shirt printers in Austin, TC, we're one that takes great pride in making sure that we provide the highest quality for the lowest price possible. Truth be told, all we care about is doing right by our customers and, in doing so, we actually do a pretty good job of keeping the lights on.
However, most competitors see a client such as the one whose shirt appears above as an easy target for inflated pricing. First off, they'd have hit them with a $25 art charge because their artwork wasn't in some format that only the hippest graphic designers know about, then they'd have added a $25 charge PER SCREEN. Three colors means three screens, with comes to $75. That's a grand total of $100 in "extra charges" before the printer even prints one shirt!
How much did we charge the client for these extras? Zero. That's right, nothing. We could have because, according to our own pricing, orders of less than 40 pieces are subject to screen charges. Darn it all, when are we going to learn to start gouging our customers?! We're kidding, of course. Like we said, all we wanna do is make sure our clients have great t-shirts to show off at their event. And, yes, we do like keeping the lights on. Makes printing so much easier! :)
