We found that One-Color, light garments (no white) the break even is 30 shirts, dark colors is 5 shirts.

On white, 2 colors - 150 shirts, 3 colors - 700 shirts.
On dark, 2 colors - 11 shirts, 3 colors - 19 shirts.

Clearly a big difference! By the way, this includes labor cost, since we have employees. The numbers are different if you don't want to calculate labor.

We basically have a big excel sheet that tells us which is faster and which is cheaper, based on our values for production times, ink costs, etc. (Sometimes the deadline is a bigger factor than money!)
