Eco Print Lab is a full-service screen printing company. We print custom apparel for companies and individuals ranging from garage-based start-ups to those with corporate towers dominating the downtown skyline. What originally started as a screen printing brokerage has morphed into a high-end custom garment decoration facility. If you want something truly unique, we’re the ones to give you what no one else can. Waterbased printing, glitter, foil, special effects, wild print locations, we do all the hard stuff, and we do it every day!
We pride ourselves on making apparel people want to wear, not just toss in the back of the closet. It all starts with great artwork, and Eco Print Lab is home to some of the best artists in the free world. We’ll create an amazing piece of art, choose garments and colors that complement it, and print it with style and feel in mind. We endeavor to print with the softest hand we can get, refusing to sell you a nice shirt with a cardboard ink blob on it. If something won’t work, we’ll let you know before printing and offer great alternatives. If something makes it to press and doesn’t look right, we’ll tweak it to make it right. We do not print indiscriminately.

Our goal is to make improvements every day, week, month and year until we are a completely sustainable contributor.

Our favorite U.S supplier.
Definitely. If you haven’t worked with us in the past, please email email@example.com with as much detail about the order as you can. If you have ordered with us before, simply email the customer service insider you worked with on your last order.
On screen printing orders of 1000 pieces or more, we will provide a free pre-production sample. For all other orders we provide digital mock ups or sew outs for approval. Otherwise samples are $150 plus screen charges and art time. We will print up to 12 garments per design. We’re very good at what we do, and we wouldn’t print anything we think might get returned. Statistically, our customers ask for samples only on orders over 100 dozen.
Nope. Pricing varies depending on the total amount ordered and certain decoration processes are geared for ordering small amounts. Get in touch and we’ll help you figure out the best approach for your custom apparel order. Here’s a guideline:

Yes! Let us know how many you want and send over your art or a description of what you would like. We can help figure out the most inexpensive process for decorating just a few items.
The more details, the better! Below is the list of everything we need, and we can help get some of the specifics for you:
Standard turn around time is 5-7 business days from when you have approved your art mock up and we have your garments in house. We can turn things sooner if needed, sometimes this incurs and additional cost.
We will always try to get your order completed for any time you need it – even in a day. Please get in touch asap with the details of what you would like and the date/time you need it by.
Production begins once any art proofs have been approved and we have your garments in house. Changes made once production begins may result in additional charges. For example, if you have approved a screen print proof and you decide to change the size, we would need to re-make new screens with the new size of art.
We do not deliver, per se, but we do ship via UPS, FedEx, USPS, and can make arrangements with a delivery service. If it’s convenient, you are welcome to come by and pick up your finished decoration order.
Any brand and style you want. We do not stock garments, so we will order anything you need.
We can print on just about any fabric. Here are some points to consider when thinking about what garment you would like to decorate:
Screen printing requires a white layer of ink to be printed as a foundation before printing the actual colors in the logo for dark colored shirts. This adds a little cost. We can print digitally on both light and dark shirts.
Yes, however there will be a re-stocking fee. The re-stocking fee is 20% of the garment cost and the cost of 2 way shipping.
Yep! Design jobs are quoted on a case by case basis at $75 per hour. Typesetting can be done for as little as $35.
We accept all formats, however, low resolution, word files, and other art that needs to be redrawn will incur a $35 redraw charge to be assessed on a case by case basis. Adobe Illustrator files with all fonts converted to outlines are preferred. If submitting an Adobe Photoshop file, please be sure the art was created at a minimum of 300 dpi. Photoshop files may incur cost to separate.
Our ink system matches Pantone Solid color books. We don’t mix using CMYK formulas or Hexachrome colors. We can always select the closest ink match to the art you have submitted or you are welcome to come by and pick colors from our Pantone books.
Although we do all over printing, the process does not allow us to print over a shoulder. We can print the front and back, although there is “misprinting” that occurs around seam areas. The front and back prints will not line up exactly.
You sure can, we do it all the time. We will design a label for you with your logo and fill out all the pertinent information, like country of origin, fabric content, and care instructions. Labels are printed in white, mid-gray, or black depending on the garment color. If you choose a garment that does not have tear-away tags, there is a small up-charge and additional time added to production.
We’re 100% custom, full-service decorators, so there are quite a few moving parts to this equation. It all starts with the cost of the goods and any art fees, followed by screens, print pricing (based on number of colors and locations), any finishing costs that go with it, and shipping costs. When asking for a quote, please supply a preview of the art and a description of what garments you want to print on, we can have you a quote in minutes!
If your order is short, it is because there were misprints. The industry standard is 2% to 4% of your order. If you need an exact number, please let us know so we can supply extras. You will not be charged for 2% underage, but you will be charged on overages up to 2%.
If you have an issue, please call us immediately! We will do our best to fix any issues as quickly as possible.
