what do you folks charge for names and/or numbers for sports teams and the like? I tend to think $4/name and $4 per number is fair. I priced a guy for 18 shirts front logo and back name and number, all in white on dark and told him $15/shirt. He thought that was too high. That shiot is time consuming to print though. What should I charge then?

I wouldn't print it. I'd use heat pressed vinyl or transferexpress. Give me an average length / width of name and each number and I'll give you my 2 cents.

Generally assuming a 2" name: $4.00.
$2.50-$3.00 / digit for the numbers.

Might be able to cut this down with heat pressed vinyl.

I normally charge $1 for 2" name, $3 for 6" #, and $4 for 8" number. All cut vinyl...if it is large qty then I will just use Transfer Express #'s, but not on jerseys.

I just did 17 black polyester jerseys for a baseball team. A two color print on the front and one color name and number on the back. I did the design myself and the customer provided the jerseys. I got names and numbers from Transfers Express
(Which were awesome by the way)

I charged $22.50 each.

Screen charge for two colors 2x$30=$60
17 Names and 17 number (not digit) $5.50 each= $187
Labor 2 hours = $120
$1 each jersey for ink and chems. ect...= $17
Total= $384
$384/17= $22.58

as for the transfers... I take it that these were not mesh jerseys.

ALright, im getting some good feedback. I guess I cant impress everybody with prices... I also cant just push a button and shirts magically get made. I suppose i needed some moral support to back up my prices. I dont strive to be the cheapest, I strive to be the best. Thanks guys.

just a followup. The guy I quoted I called back to see if he wanted to go ahead with the order. He said no; that he found someone who would do them for $7 a shirt. How in the hell can anyone make a dime off of $7 a shirt for only 17 shirts all with diff. names and numbers on the back? thats beyond me.

I charge $12 for a one color screen print on the chest and a 6 inch number on the back and $15 with 2 inch letters for the player name. The chest is a direct screen print and the name and numer are heat pressed vinyl. When printing on shirts supplied by the customer, eight dollars for a name and number is a fair price.

There will always be someone willing to sell based on price alone. Remember that you you are selling quality and service and those are worth the extra money!

I imagine, unless he changed his mind about the front, the entire shirt required a full front print, and names and numbers on the back. and It was I who would be supplying the shirts. everything included in that $7.

Now if you had to do the print on the front, supply the shirts, and do name and number(s) on the back, I would not be near $7. Something tells me your client did not compare apples to apples or give you a chance to revise when they got a lower price.

1 name, 1 number, 1 1 color chest print $10 + shirt and appropriate markup.

heat transfer plasticol. I would make screens for the names and run them on transfer paper with transfer ink. I get the numbers from a local transfer company. so both of those would ultimately be heat transferred on. not the front though.

So you would just jam as many names on a screen that you could? That is a pretty good idea, but what is your reasoning of that over like a cut vinyl?

Probably the feel of it. Next job I have for numbers I'm going to give that a try myself. I've done heat transfer plastisol here as a test and I like it. I can't see me not using it in the future.
