SCREEN PRINTING

Print your event merchandise on-the-spot at your festival, corporate event or grand opening. You bring the people and we bring our Matte Black mini studio.

PICK A PRODUCT, PICK A DESIGN, GO HOME HAPPY

Don’t get stuck with extra, outdated product. Your guests pick the product they want, pick their design, and go home with a unique, hand-printed souvenir. In some cases, excess inventory can be returned for a small restocking fee. 

CUSTOMIZED EVENT PLANNING TO FIT YOUR NEEDS

Each event is unique. When planning for your event, it's important to us that we meet your specific needs. In order to do this, we will collaborate with your team and to determine the best setup and experience to offer your attendees.

WHY LIVE PRINTING OVER CUSTOM PRINTING?

When you're able to see how the product you're buying is made, it adds value. If you're wanting to create an experience for your audience and engage them in a way that they don't typically have the opportunity to engage in - live printing is a great option.

  • Festivals

  • Live Music

  • Sporting Events

LIVE PRINTING FAQ

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

Since each event is unique, we don't have cookie cutter pricing. We do, however, have various packages available to help us cater to your needs based on quantity needed, style of product or print, how products are purchased, and the length of your event.

 

CAN YOU PRINT MORE THAN ONE DESIGN OR COLOUR?

Our standard live setup allows for up to 4 screens at a time. We’ll work with your team to decide how you’d like them set up. We highly recommend sticking to 1 colour designs to avoid long wait times for your guests.

 

DO CUSTOMERS PAY YOU OR US FOR THE PRODUCTS?

That's up to you. We’d suggest working with one of the two following options:

Option 1: We act as your merch table and your customers pay us directly for their products.

Option 2: You pre-pay for a certain amount of shirts and we give them to your guests for free as promotional material.

 

CAN YOU PRINT ON ANYTHING BESIDES T-SHIRTS?

Yes! We have the ability to print sweatshirts and tote bags. If an item you're interested in getting printed isn't listed here, just shoot us a line and we'll let you know if we're up for the challenge.

CAN I SUBMIT MY OWN ARTWORK?

Absolutely. If you have pre-made artwork that you want to use, we ask that you send that over to us with your inquiry so we can make sure it is something we are capable of producing. Printable files must be at least 300 dpi in .pdf or vector file formats.

If you don't have your own artwork, don't let that stop the party. Just let us know and we can include design services in your quote.

DO YOU NEED ANY ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT OR SUPPLIES?

A power source is required but if you don’t have one we can arrange to bring our own.

HOW MUCH OF A HEADS UP DO YOU NEED FOR BOOKING?

The sooner the better. For live events we prefer to book several months in advance to ensure we have your dates available. We typically require at least 2 weeks notice in order to prep your supplies and artwork.
