New Apparel Order Forms

wizorder-jakprintsCancel that afternoon meeting, because it’s time to talk about everyone’s favorite topic: Online Forms and Order Processing.

Soon, we’ll be rolling out some big changes to both of our Screen Printing and Embroidery order forms. We’re super proud of the massive number of brands, image locations, inks, effects and threads we offer to create truly custom apparel for you… But, all those options can also make ordering feel overwhelming. That’s why we re-built the forms from the ground up.

Product Showcase – Clear Stickers

What’s a Clear Sticker? Glad you asked. Instead of telling you we thought showing you would be best. Clear Stickers are great label alternatives if you’re on a budget but want a custom shape for your design. Fantastic for application on windows, glass, beer bottles or mirrors. The possibilities are endless and did we mention there’s a unicorn?

Jakprints And The Berklee College of Music

The Berklee College of Music recently asked Jakprints, as a progressive authority in the printing and apparel industry, to create an educational video series to use in their curriculum.

In this video, industry experts Jacob Edwards (Founder and President) and Nick DeTomaso (Director of Operations) share insights and advice on how to get started when marketing your music and yourself as a brand and musician. Drawing on years of experience and deep roots in the music industry, Jacob and Nick touch on everything from the still relevant, one-color black t-shirt, to the fact that marketing and branding are necessary to the survival of the independent artist or musician.

A Few Key Take Aways From The Video:

  • Merchandising Is The Future Of The Music Industry
  • Keeping It Simple Will Give You The Highest ROI 
  • A Consistent Brand Is The Key To Success

Confused by how to order the garment that you need? Unsure what print locations are standard versus custom? Wish somebody would just spell it out in plain English? No problem.

In what will be the first in a series of many, this introductory video was produced by Jakprints to equip you with the need-to-know facts of apparel screen printing. Watch as industry expert, and Jakprints Account Manager, Angie Franklin walks you step-by-step through the basics of garments, inks, print location and finishing.

We get a lot of the same questions about the process so we decided to create a video FAQ as a jumping off point. We have many more videos just like this on the way, and we’d love to hear your input. Let us know what you think in the comments!
