Q: How much does it cost for ordering custom t-shirt?
A: Pan N’ Panda pricing is based on four components.
Type - which garments are ordered. We offer a wide choice of Cotton T-shirts, Dry-Fit T-shirts, Polos, Sweaters, Hoodies, Baseball Jackets, Wind-Breaker. For t-shirts, we have more than 10 styles for selection.
Quantity - the number of garments you order with the same design.
Colors - the number of colors in your design.
Locations - the amount and locations of printing on the garment.
Q: Is there a minimum t-shirt order quantity?
A: There is no minimum quantity for all regular items offer by Pan N’ Panda. Yet, price will be cheaper for larger quantity.
Q: What factors affect my t-shirt pricing?
A: Major factors as below:
Type: The brands Pan N’ Panda carries vary in price, but we use our purchasing power to get you the best possible deal on blank apparel. We buy all over the country and do so in large quantities.
Quantity: Our printing process dictates that if you order a greater quantity of shirts, you’ll save money. It’s simply less expensive for Pan N’ Panda to set up and print a large number of the same design than it is to set up and print a small number of a single design.
Colors: The process of screen printing requires us to make a separate screen for every color in your design. The fewer colors in your design, the less expensive producing the design becomes for us and for customers. Digital printings are not limited to quantity and less color limitations but with higher price.
Locations: Each printing location on a piece of apparel (i.e. front, back, sleeve, etc.) demands a specific set-up in order to execute. Therefore, multiple printing locations on your apparel will raise the price.
Other factors that can affect your overall pricing include:
Special printing color such as gold and silver paint, reflective, florescent and glitter materials. Adding individual player names and numbers will increase the cost of your shirts as well.
Q: Any tips for making my t-shirts less expensive?
A: Check out the following tips
Use a cheaper t-shirt: We have a wide choice of t-shirts and there are different price level to suit your budget.
Use fewer design colors: The screen printing process requires us to make a separate screen for each color in your design. The less screens we have to make, the less expensive it is to print your apparel.
Choose a cheaper full color printing technology: Select heat transfer instead of inkjet for full color prints
Increase order size: The more shirts of the same design that you order, the less expensive it is for Pan N’ Panda to produce them. Since each printing location means a new set up; dividing this cost among many shirts rather than just one or a few means savings per unit for you.prints.
Decrease printing locations: The fewer prints Pan N’ Panda has to set up for one apparel order, the less expensive that apparel will be for the customer. Each printing location on a garment requires separate set up, so printing just on the front of a shirt versus printing on the front and back will reduce your overall cost.
