I have a customer who inquired about a 3 color logo on 1,000 black polypropylene drawstring bags. She wants to order them herself and have me print on them.

I have never done a poly cinch bag before but 3 color sounds intimidating. I only have a 6 color press, no heat press. The website she got a quote from online said $1.17 per bag printed. Blank is 66 cents.

Can 3 colors be done well on these packs just by screen printing? Is 50 cents profit per bag even worth it? Im torn on this one and a little afraid to try it... any thought appreciated thanks everyone

Just make sure they're easy enough to replace. You should talk her into letting you order them to "guarantee" the work and so you can have a test print or two and a few extras just in case!

For 3 color I wouldn't touch this. It's not 50 cent profit per bag. You have ink, screen making, setup, cleanup. $500 profit for that many item is just not worth it especially on a manual. If I was running on auto it would take 2-2 1/2 hr plus the 1-2 hr for everything else. By the time you take out all your cost you would be around $50 an hr on a auto and about half or less then that on a manual. You have to decide is it worth messing with, what jobs you may have to pass if your press is tied up.
