We specialize in stationary printing. Click here for more info on printing.
Matson Graphics offers 4 color t-shirt print jobs. We typically print on Hanes, Anvil, American Apparel and Gilden. Minimum orders of 2 doz please. Note: If you just want 1-2 tees printed, your best bet is calling Kinkos and doing a heat transfer. Call today for your free t-shirt print quote!
Free Consultation and Estimate
Matson Graphics does not bill potential clients for initial consultation meetings, emails or phone calls in which we discuss your needs for a project. We will always provide a free estimate.
Matson Graphics will bill on either an hourly or on a project-fee basis, depending on the project requirements and the client's preferences. Hourly fees typically work out better for the client. Our speedy and proficient service will save you both time and money. We're a smaller design studio, so less expensive than big graphic design companies!
Matson Graphics' pricing is only $75.00 per hour. If you would like a pricing guide emailed or faxed to you, please email us here:
Payment by cash or check is preferred. Credit cards are accepted through paypal. Additional payment requirements: Clients are responsible for paying sales tax, and shipping if necessary.
We require a 1/2 down payment to start all jobs and the final payment upon completion of the job at hand. Any jobs over $500 require a project proposal to be signed and dated by the client before any work is started.
Contact Matson Graphics: Seth Matson
Matson Graphics is Located in Huntington Beach, Orange County, California - USA
Initially we will typically communicate with the client through email or the phone (we can meet in person if needed).
After you have communicated all your graphic design needs, a Project Proposal will be written up. The Proposal will need to be signed and dated by the client and Matson Graphics, and either mailed, faxed or emailed back to the Matson Graphics offices.
1/2 Down Payment
At this stage we request that a 50% deposit is paid to Matson Graphics to start all jobs. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit cards (via paypal).
Once the 1/2 down payment is recieved, your Design Concepts will be started. Typically Matson Graphics creates 1-3 design sample roughs for the client to choose from, depending on the job. These sample designs are typically emailed to the client for review.
Changes to the Rough Drafts (if needed)
At the revisions stage the client typically has the choice of making up to three seperate revisions (changes) to the “one” favorite sample rough draft concept out of the three that were emailed to the client.
After the final revisions are made, and the client gives the “ok”, Matson Graphics will then prep the art files so they are ready for print, web, etc., and burn the final art to disc.
Release of the balance/artwork
Once the final payment is received, Matson Graphics will release all final approved artwork on disc or via email to the client
(Websites will go live at this stage).
What to consider when choosing a graphic designer:
Find out the hourly charge ($75 at Matson Graphics).
Find out the turn around time for the project.
Ask what type of art files you are entitled to when the project is completed.
Always request an invoice or a receipt.
Make sure to fill out a signed written agreement before the job starts.
Be sure to ask the designer's opinion. Graphic Designers work with hundreds of clients each year and can sometimes have great insight for you and your final projects outcome. This is also a good way to get the most out of your graphic artist.
