Get an Accuate Printing Quote

How do you get an accurate screen printing quote? Know:

1. Type of item printed (nylon jacket, athletic shirts, pocket print, sleeve print?)

2. Quantity of items to be printed

3. Item a light or dark color?

4. Number of prints (designs) per item

5. Number of colors per design

6. Artwork printable? (at least 300 dpi - not clipart off the internet or a docx file!)

Remember that screenprinting pricing is usually based on the number of items printed, it costs more to print dark items, the number of colors in a design increases the cost and printing just one letter/word in a different location counts as another print.
