Live Printing FAQ

Answers to common questions about Live Event Printing. We know that each event is different from the next. We're happy to work with you to meet your specific needs; feel free to reach out to us anytime.

Can you print on anything other than t-shirts?

We can print on long sleeves, tote bags, hats, hoodies and more. The list of  printable items is vast so if there is something you're interested in for your event that we haven't mentioned, don't hesitate to ask us about it.

What locations does Carver Junk Company service?

We currently only offer printing within the Twin Cities Metro/Suburb area of Minnesota. We may be willing to travel for your event, and can quote pricing separately.

Do event attendees pay for the products?

Fundraising events & corporate events tend to differ for payment. For fundraising events, most organizations have attendee/customers purchase the items they wish to have printed on-site at the event, often mixing & matching designs & merchandise for each order. Corporate events often select set merchandise options and quantities, and pay for their attendees purchases.

What will Carver Junk Company bring to the event?

  • 2 to 4 members of our team for printing, crowd interaction, and fun!
  • Our printing press, capable of producing 35-50 shirts/hour
  • Shirts or other merchandise, on which to print the selected designs
  • All supplies for set up, cleaning and tear down
  • Two to four 6-foot tables for sorting orders
  • Carver Junk Company signage, pricing (if customers pay for their purchases), etc.

What does Carver Junk Company need at the event venue?

  • One dedicated outlet for our printer, an additional outlet if also printing hats
  • A 10' x 20' area to set up tables and our equipment
  • Lighting so we can see what we're doing 
  • A dry area if rain is in the forecast. We have tents & tent walls, but our equipment does best when well-sheltered.

How long will you be at the event?

We can produce approximately 35-50 shirts/hour. The weather, design and type of garment can impact the actual output. During our booking conversation, we will determine the right amount of printing time at the event.

Pre-printing is a great way to avoid delays and long lines. We can print any number of garments prior to the event and print the remainder live. We can also pre-print sponsor logos or other designs prior to the event.

How much lead time do you require?

We ask that you book us at least 4 weeks before your scheduled event.

Can I provide my own artwork?

Yes! We can work with your existing artwork or create original designs for your event!

Recommendations to make your event run smoothly

  • Simpler is better. The best events are ones with just a couple of options. The process is quicker and people get their order without waiting in a long line.
  • Pre-printing a portion of shirts before the event can reduce lines and delays. With pre-printing, we can have a large number of shirts for the event and still give guests an interactive experience with the production process. We will determine how many pre-prints will be necessary based on your event specifications.
  • We ask for a 10' x 20' area for our setup but it's a good idea to allocate more space as live printing can be a popular attraction!
  • It must be at least 60°F outside (for outdoor events) for our printer to maintain heat level necessary for printing.
