Q: Are there any up front charges to print on a bag?
Are there any up front charges to print on a bag?

Yes. There is almost always a one-time-only charge to produce your custom printing plates. All printing plates are priced, made, and billed by the square inch. The larger the plate size is the more expensive the one-time-charge will be for your custom printing plates. One time printing plate charges normally range between $150.00 – $800.00 depending on the size of the print and the number of ink colors.

How many ink colors can we print?

The quick answer is: as many as you can possibly need. We can print up to 10 colors of ink depending on the quantity you’d like to order. The more bags you need, the easier it is to print more ink colors.
