Adding Screen Printing to transactions

Ready to quote some screen printed tees? Here's how to add that to a transaction.

  1. On the quote, sales order, or invoice, click Add New Item
  2. Search for Screen Printing - Apparel or just select it from the Product dropdown
  3. Change the Name and add a Description (optional) for your customer. Your customer will see both of these fields so don't use any industry jargon.

Add your apparel

  1. Choose a Catalog to search for apparel.
    If you need a garment that's not available from our integrated vendors, choose the Custom option.
  2. Search for the Product by style number or name. Style number is usually quicker.
  3. Select the Color your customer wants.
  4. Fill in the quantities for all the Sizes that your customer wants.

Add your locations

  1. Select the Location that you are printing.
  2. Choose the Colors.
  3. Enter any additional notes in Location Details. (optional)
    This should be the specific ink colors if you have them, any special details about the design, and anything else you think is relevant. Oversharing is totally ok here and can prevent production issues later.
  4. Add any additional locations by click Add Location (optional).
    1. Repeat steps 8,9, and 10 above for each additional location.

Add any options

Options are typically value added services like folding & bagging or special inks. They are charged per garment.

  1. Click Add Option
  2. Choose an Option from the dropdown.
  3. In the Option Details field, type any important notes about that option.
    For example: customer is supplying hang tags or size stickers or leave 6 larges un-bagged for them to use as samples
  4. Click Save This Line Item

Adjusting pricing for Screen Printing

Changing the print type

  1. Click the Settings (⚙) icon on the right side of the Shirt Color field.

    The options listed here become the columns in your price matrix.

Changing the price matrix

    1. The number of garments your customer orders determines which row is used for price calculation. In this example, if your customer orders 1 to 5 shirts, then pricing from the first row would be used. If your customer orders 6 to 23 shirts then pricing from the second row would be used.

Changing the options

This is obviously optional 😉. But adding extra services can boost your revenue and can be added as part of the line item instead of listing them as a separate line item on the invoice.

Options are always charged per garment. If you have add-ons that are charged once per order, like Color Matches or Color Changes, you'll want to add those as separate line items.
  1. Click Add Option
  2. Click the Settings (⚙) icon on the right side of the Option field.
  3. Adjust the labor rates for the Option field. Once you're done, make sure you click Save Selected Labor Rates to save your changes.

    2. You can edit the name and price for any existing labor rate by clicking the Edit button.
    3. Add a new option by clicking Add New Labor Rate
