Frequently Asked Questions About

My Interest Is That I Only Want To Print A Couple Of Shirts. What Are My Options?

There is no minimum order! There are two options available.  Choose from Direct to Garment or Direct to Film.  Both of these will take care of printing in full color and white ink.  We suggest Direct to Film if you are bringing in your own shirts, since we haven't found a fabric where it doesn't work well.  More good news . . . no set-up charge.

Can I Really Design My Own University of Arizona Shirt, Sounds Difficult.  How Do I Go About It?

First let me assure you that everything is legal and will be approved by the University before fabrication.  Everything can be done on line.  You find many of the logos right on the web and ready to use.  Then add your name, other graphics and have over 800 fonts available.  You pick the color, and you pick the type style. We take care of having everything approved by the University.  And what a great gift, and what a great way for everyone in the family to support the Wildcats.  Direct to Color or Direct to Film technologies will be used and your shirts will be ready in 1-3 business days.

What If Have My Own Shirts That I Want To Decorate?

We have you covered.  Direct to Film is a technology that utilizes digital imaging technology.  We can print out full color hi-resolution graphics for you that you can apply yourself.  Yes, you should have a skill level to do this and yes we recommend that you let us take care of it for you.  By the way there are resellers and screen printers that purchase 1000's of images from us.  We're known for our quality, inexpensive prices, and fast delivery.

Who Is Graphic Impact And What Can You Tell Me About Your Company?

We are a local, family business founded in 1989.  Almost all of our products are manufactured in house.  We make it a point to do as much business locally has possible and you see our products everywhere.  Most of the larger companies in town are our customers.  Companies  (and friends) are folks like the University of Arizona Athletics Department, Banner Health, TMC,  Raytheon and Pima County.  But don't let that fool you.  We also have over 20,000 smaller customers and they love us. A lot of people think we can do anything, but we're very careful about telling our customers that.

What Are Your Feelings About Taking Care Of The Environment?

We're pretty serious about it!  Most of our equipment runs on solar.  We don't believe that organic solvents should be used in any industrial environment.  And that sustainability is something that we believe in.  It's one of the reasons that we try to keep screen printing to a minimum.

There Are Hundreds Of Shirts We Have To Have Printed.  There Are Only a Couple of Colors And Price Is a Major Factor!

Screen Printing is the answer in this case. There are set-up costs and deliveries are a little longer.  But with larger quantities there probably will be a cost savings.  We can do a thorough analysis and recommend the best way to proceed with the project.

Should I Invest In Large Inventories So I will Always Have Product On-Hand?

Maybe, not such a good idea knowing that you can get as many as needed in 1-3 business days.  Here's another idea, Graphic Impact has designed and manged sites for our customers. We handle deliveries, billing and much more.  If this sound like something that makes sense for you, give us a call.

How Do I Find You?

We are located at 5440 East Speedway on the South side of the street and just west of  Craycroft. There is a Whataburger just to the West of our store.

Do You Have Local Management?

That's for sure!  We are a Tucson, locally founded family business.  Although the founder of our company, Howard W. Volin, has a very broad, executive, marketing background and he believes  that our team must be sure to put employees and our valued customers first.  Our company, also, must employ the latest and best technology.

Where Can I See Examples Of Your Work?

We have a showroom where we would be happy to show you examples.  Even more important, as Southern Arizona's largest in-house manufacturer, you will see examples  all over town from the smallest name tags to the largest building and monument signs.  Just ask!

We have everything necessary to make your apparel design something special

Tucson Printed Shirts has the most productive large format printers in its class, delivering vivid, high-impact prints. 

Raster image processors are critical components of any printing system. These programs generate raster images, or bitmaps, in formats such as TIFF (.tif), BMP (.bmp), PICT (.pct), GIF (.gif), JPEG (.jpg) and PSD (Photoshop’s default). Bitmaps contain pixel resolution information and can render text, vector layers and other elements.

The bitmap is then sent to our large format printers for output. The input may be a page description in a high-level page description language such as PostScript, Portable Document Format.  When the resolution is too low, the RIP applies either smoothing or interpolation algorithms to the input bitmap to generate the output bitmap.

Raster image processing is turning digital vector information such as a PostScript file into a high-resolution raster image.

Every image that exists in a digital electronic format is made of picture elements. At some point, all such digital image data, whether expressed as vector format data or bitmap format data, must be rendered into pixels for display on a monitor or for printing on a printer.

All images, therefore, in custom printed apparel, have pixels as their base. Rendering, or translating the digital data into physical output, is the most critical part of realizing such images. Raster image processing (RIP) refers to translating digital image data into physical visuals and graphics. The software RIP interprets the page description languages and digital image data and translates the representation into a continuous tone bitmap. It then applies frequency and amplitude modulation precisely controlled by sophisticated mathematical algorithms producing the required information for the output device to function correctly.

If needed, we help in setting up your project and selecting the correct Printing technology

When we want to print an advertising poster, as an example, the best results are achieved by incorporating both vector and bitmap graphics. A combination of

  • Photographs – lots of colors, fixed/finite size from a digital camera. These files will be bitmaps, probably.tif or.jpg files, and large size to achieve the required resolution. Photos just can’t be easily represented as a vector graphic.
  • The company logo and some simple illustrations will be small-sized files that will print smoothly at any resolution. The files use simple, non-photorealistic colors, and we may want to edit them to serve our needs. These files should be bitmaps – probably. EPS files for use in other programs.
  • We will also use some fonts, which are vector files.
  • The logos, illustration files, and text files will be small vector files, and they will scale infinitely to allow us to print a billboard size, and the edges will remain razor-sharp.

Direct to garment (DTG) and direct to film (DTF) printing

Screen Printing and most other direct to garment (DTG) printing systems apply ink directly on top of the shirt. Our printing processes first automatically treats the fiber of the shirt (pre-treatment) to be receptive to our water based inks. When applied, the ink then saturates the fiber in full color. These inks are 100% non-hazardous, toxin-free and adhere to the strictest human health and environmental standards. As a water-free printing system with no need for any external processes such as pre-treatment, steaming and washing, our biodegradable ink and energy saving process allows Graphic Impact to use the most eco-friendly printing solution in the market.
