ORDERING INFO

Ordering custom screen printed items from us is straight forward.  Email us or call us and we’ll get you a quote asap. Orders@milestshirts.com or call 217 528 2816.

We do not publish a price sheet – There is always something slightly different about each job and we like to give an accurate quote. This means there are no disappointing surprise costs for you and we make sure we don’t go broke.

Win win.

  • How many pieces you want printed?
  • If you have more than one design keep in mind that your price break will be determined by the quantity of each design not your entire order.
  • What item you want printed (shirt, hoodie, polo, etc)
  • What  Ink color you would like the item to be (ink color guide)
  • How many colors to be printed in each print location (print placement guideprint sizing guide)
  • A file of the design if you have it, or a description of the design you want (we can also help with artwork)
