Everything You Need to Know Before Ordering Tees For your Graduation.

fashion_4_slide_1_bg.jpgAre you part of your school’s grad committee? Figuring out where to order your set of custom T-shirts and sweaters? With the end of the school year fast approaching, the time is now to order for the upcoming festivities associated with your transition out of grade school or high school!

Up until pretty recently, it has been kind of a hassle to track down a printing company that could place your school logo, school crest, grad names, designs, etc. on hundreds of T-shirts and sweaters without waiting months for delivery and paying a fortune. Websites like customink.com have taken advantage of this by offering a standardized way of customizing your clothing however you like and ordering in bulk. The problem is, these kinds of services don’t really save you that much money either!

Allow me to explain. Sites like customink charge based on volume. The less you order, the more you pay. You can choose from a series of materials, but the cost can range from $15-$25 a T-shirt. Plus, adding artwork, designs, and lettering, adds to the price. From a business standpoint, this makes sense, but as a consumer, this is far from impressive. A small graduation or event with artwork involved can end up costing you about the same as one with minimal design for 40+ people. In addition, you are charged extra for one week or three-day shipping and for any size above XL. Finally, there is the currency issue. Almost all sites like customink price their merchandise in USD. That $15-$25 a T-shirt could quickly shoot up when navigating the checkout page, especially in this current economy (Jan. 2016 has a 45% devaluation on the Canadian Dollar). At the end of the day, you are looking at a hefty price tag that overshadows the specialness of any event.

Here is a simple breakdown of customink’s pricing:

Shirt Quantity 1-5 6-10 11-20 21-50 51-100 101+
White Shirt (in USD) $20-$21 $13-$20 $9-$12 $6-$9 $5-$6 $4-$5
Black/Color Shirt (in USD) $24-$25 $14-$22 $10-$14 $8-$10 $7-$8 $5-$6
