Naka Apparel offers several custom apparel printing applications, including screen printing (silk screening), embroidery, dye sublimation, glitter, rhinestones, patches and more.
We utilize several different inks and techniques to offer our clients a wide variety of printing, including printing on 100% cotton, cotton/polyester blends, dri-fit and moisture wicking shirts and more

Common designs printed with DTG include printing pictures on shirts.

Having good, clean artwork is very important when it comes to printing on apparel. It’s almost as important as the printing technique itself.
We will need to get your artwork in vector format. We prefer .ai or .eps files to work with submitted artwork, however, we can also take .pdf or .svg.
If you don’t have any artwork or your logo is not in vector format, our art department will be able to convert your image/file for a small fee.
Furthermore, it’s also important to realize in screen printing that each color is printed separately, which means if you have multiple colors in your design, then you will also need to have your artwork color separated (ie. Put each color on its own screen).
Yes, our art department will be able to assist you in helping create artwork.
One thing to keep in mind is many people make the mistake assuming their graphic designer knows the intricacies of printing on shirts. Designing something so it looks good on your website or on paper is very different than designing something that will pop on a t-shirt.
We will be happy to take a look at your artwork and tell you if there are any changes or alterations that will make the final product look better.
Yes, we offer wholesale printing to qualified companies. Visit our wholesale t-shirts printing page for more information.
Yes, we offer contract printing.
Contract printing is something that often confuses people on what exactly that is. Basically, contract printing is similar to wholesale printing but instead of us providing the garments, our client has a relationship with manufacturers and distributors so they purchase the blank garments themselves and ship them to us and we print it for them. You can learn more about it by visiting our contract custom t-shirts printing page.
Yes, we can print your logo on the inside of the shirts.
If you have your label already designed, we can simply imprint it onto the inside of the shirt. We can also help you design your inside label if you need help.
Please contact us for more details.
Yes, we can fold and bag your items for a small fee. Our bags come with choking warnings printed on them for the safety of your clients.
Our standard turn around times for orders is 7-10 business days. These times may extend during peak seasons. We will be able to give you a better idea of our production schedule when you place your order.
Yes, we actually allot times in our production schedule to allot for rush orders. There is a rush order fee but we can rush your orders in as little as 1 business day if necessary.
Yes, you can print just one shirt but your “per shirt” cost will be much higher than if you ordered a larger quantity.
Yes, you can bring in your own garments if you wish and we will print on them.
Keep in mind we do reserve the right for an industry standard of 3% for damages, misprint and spoilage. It’s important that if you absolutely must have a certain quantity of an item, you should order extra shirts to avoid not having enough in the event of misprints.
Yes, we ship nationwide via UPS, FedEx and USPS. We also offer OnTrac shipping where available.
With shipping, we offer 2 options:
1) We can ship directly to you using our account and we bill you for the cost of the shipping, or
2) If you have an account with one of the above carriers, we can provide you with the box dimensions and weight and you can create a shipping label under your account. Simply email us the shipping label and we’ll attach that to your order and drop it off at the respective carrier.
Because we’ve been printing for a long time, we’ve seen and come across a wide variety of situations. While many are simply straight orders (example: a business or organization prints hundreds of t-shirts), we have seen an uptick in individuals and organizations (especially non-profits) that are interested in raising money by selling shirts.
The issue with buying a bunch of shirts and re-selling them (whether online or offline), you have to get a bunch of shirts printed, hold the inventory and hope that the sizes and quantities you ordered are sold. Most times, people are stuck with a bunch of leftover, various inventory.
To help eliminate this, we created a platform where sellers can design shirts online and sell them without having to worry about the hassle of printing the shirts, handling inventory, collecting money, shipping and customer service. We do all the work for you and simply send you a check.

A lot of stories you hear will advertise you can make 6-figure incomes through selling shirts. While this is definitely possible, most of these people or companies promoting this are marketing or “consulting” companies that make money off of YOU. They’ll sell you an e-book, educational series or mastermind group membership. Again, there’s nothing wrong with this and we’re not saying these organizations are not successful, but the main objective of these companies are to sell you products or services. You can read this article about the hidden pitfalls of internet marketing.
Saying that, there are many factors to discuss about how much money you will make. You may sell 100 shirts (and people will advertise this) but you need to ask yourself:
1) How much money did I spend to sell those 100 shirts (graphic designs, advertising, etc)?
2) How much time did I spend doing this? Remember, time is money and you should be calculating your time invested into each project.
