It all depends on the shirts you buy. It is a one color job, so some screen printers charge a $20 - $50 one-time screen charge. Artwork setup is another fee. Then you want to calculate ink/chemical costs in as well.

From what I've seen working with screen printers an average costs per shirt is around $6-$8 printed plus screen charges.

Hope this helps.

Not sure I understand your post seeing as this is your first post you need to add a little detail..... Like have you set up for screen printing, and or heat transfer and this is your first order? or were you planning to outsource the work..... a little more detail might get you some better answers .... from a screen printers perspective I can only add that there are many variables in pricing methods but as was already said in a previous reply the bottom line is it ususally falls in the 6 to 8 dollars a shirt catagory when all is said an done..... I give my customers a simple out the door price per shirt.... the more i keep it simple the more likely they are to make the order... I once compared my pricing with another printer in the area that provides his customers a detailed list of a whole list of different charges.... we were within 1 dollar of each other on a 36 shirt order....

Sorry about all the holes in my inquiry. I am set up for silkscreen printing , This would be my first "job" and liturally my second time printing. The first print was a photo of a friends child and to be completely honest I look at that shirt (made one for my self) and I can not believe I printed the shirt. Now that was three shirt print for a friend whom paid for my start up equipment. So I'm a little nervous about this order for 20 shirts I dont want to over charge nor do I want to sell my self short out of fear. Thank you for responding I literally was stuffed under my desk wondering if I should give up before I even got started
