Process & Fees
Swale is a small-batch single-color print shop. We print in only monochromatic designs (one color ink per print). Some inks are slightly opaque, meaning the color of the garment will show through the ink and affect its final color. A variety of ink colors are available, and we are available to discuss your project in further detail in order to plan a design and color combo that you will love!
What does it cost?
  • Screen Setup Fee* (up to 13” x 17” space): $50 (The screen remains the property of Swale but can be stored on behalf of client for future printings)
  • Design Fee (variable depending on design needs and/or format): $85/hour
  • Printing Fee: $12 per print (on items supplied by client) - variable (on items sourced by Swale)
What can we print on?
  • All kinds of knitwear: tees, tanks, hoodies, sweatshirts, sweatpants, shorts, masks, etc. (Client can provide items or can purchase via Swale.)
  • Cotton and cotton blends
  • Fabric panels (for quilting, framing, etc.)
  • Archival paper (for framing/display)
File Format
If you are providing a ready-made design for screen-printing, we accept the following file formats, at your desired print size: tif, pdf, bmp, ai, indd, or psd. If you just have a sketch, a photo, or an idea, we are happy to assist you in making your screen-printing dream a reality (see fees above).
