I have a general question about price calculation. I'm considering getting one of your kits and I wondered what the average price break down is for screening a shirt. Cost to make one screen and the ink for a full chest graphic? Basically with a $3 shirt, I'm trying to figure out the average cost per screened shirt with a single color.
Single color shirts are not much, which is great for the screen printing Lets say you have 100 shirts to print. A nice screen is roughly $25, It will cost you about $5 to make the screen, you'll use roughly 1/2 QT of ink printing 100 shirts and a quart costs around $30 and you'll use about $2 of cleaning supplies and other chemicals such as spray mist to print and to clean up after you print. You will spend MAYBE $3 at MOST on electricity to print them, 25+5+15+2+3=$50. So those 100 shirts costed you $.50 each to print in supplies. As you grow you can buy more screens for less money, gallons of ink for less money, and you will learn how to use your supplies better, the numbers above are based on beginner usage. Hope this helps, welcome to screen printing
