Here at Red Tail Design, we work with all manner of organizations. From sole proprietorships to large institutions, we try to keep our pricing options accessible to any business.

Prices provided are best estimates and can vary project to project.

For some of our services, such as custom signage, it’s hard to give an estimate without talking to you about your needs. So please drop us an email with your specifications, give us a call, or stop by the shop at 94 Columbus Rd, Athens, Ohio, and we can discuss your new project.

Do you have a minimum order amount?

It depends on the product but we want to be as accessible as possible to small businesses and organizations. For t-shirts, it’s 12. For our handmade wooden items, we try to avoid having to enforce a minimum.

Why isn’t there one standard price for t-shirts, or other products?

Pricing depends on a number of variables, including:

  • Order size
  • Base product (tri-blend t shirt, ladies or unisex, sweatshirt, etc)
  • Number of colors used
  • Location and size of design

Sample pricing for an order of 50 unisex tri-blend t shirts with three color design in one print location:

  • $513 + $75 in screen fees ($25 for each color). Screen fees are a one-time cost, and do not apply to a shirt reorder.

Is there an extra design fee on top of fabrication?

If you need design work beyond just handing a logo or design files over to us to put on a product, we can discuss that with you. If you need a design to use on merchandise or a layout created for promotional items we’re happy to work on that.

What materials can you use?

We can utilize a wide range of materials on our laser cutter and engraver, such as acrylic, and combine these with a variety of woods including maple, cherry, and more. Wood availability depends on supply, since we are dedicated to crafting from local as much as possible.

What do you do in-house vs. what do you order?

We do all woodworking (small to large), fabrication, laser cutting, designing, and web design in-house. We work with local companies for t-shirt printing and use vendors to supply the base for certain promo materials such as growlers and water bottles that we then customize for you in-house.

Having the right type of files will make your product development go much smoother. We ask for the highest quality version of logos and design files that you have. Having vector files (files ending in .ai, .eps, .pdf, .svg) are always best.
