Sample prices for supplies:

We've compiled a list of prices for supplies at leading wholesale suppliers.  The prices do vary. When you order, we will include a list of all the suppliers below (and more).


Plastisol Inks

Inks will be a very small operating expense.  The cost per shirt on inks is about one to five cents.  There are many different types of inks in the marketplace.  Here are sample prices for multi-purpose textile inks.

Quart Gallon
Black $10.20 $28.80
White $11.00 $32.00
Orange $14.20 $44.80
Royal Blue $12.20 $36.80


Screens

Screens can be purchased with either a wooden or aluminum frame.  Wooden frames are cheaper but some wooden screens warp and make it nearly impossible to restretch them and obtain good registration.  Aluminum screens are more expensive.  But aluminum screens won't warp and can be restretched and reclaimed hundreds of times.

Screens also come in different mesh counts.  Different mesh counts are used depending on what type of ink you are using, what type of image you are printing, or what type of garment you are printing on.  It sounds complicated, but we will provide with information on what type of mesh to use for different jobs.  A mesh count of 110-195 will be fine for most orders.

Squeegees

The squeegee is the device that pushes the ink through the screen onto your garment.  Squeegees come in different lengths and blade types.  Most handles are made of wooden  handles.  Blades are usually plastic or rubber.  Squeegees can be purchased from most screen printing wholesalers.  Squeegees are usually priced by the inch. 

Pricing:

Squeegee with wooden handle:
$.80 - $1.00 per inch

12" Squeegee - $9.60 - $12.00


T-shirts

Shirts come in many different colors and  different compositions.  Most screen printers use 100% Cotton or 50/50 t-shirts.  There are many different brands of t-shirts.  Opinions differ on which brand is best.  The type of t-shirt you purchase will depend on who is ordering.  Some orders will call for heavy shirts.  Other orders will call for the cheapest shirt you can find.  It is important that you know what your customer wants and needs.
