Does anyone charge extra for printing on dark shirts for having to flash and print again?

Yes. That's double the printing work. In our pricing, it's charged as 1 screen for setup, 2 colors for actual printing.
Nice guys laugh last.

yep. but we don't mention it. simply type 2 into the box for how many colors in that location to output the price. adds to cost from setup and printing time and screen costs.

we don't account for the cost of flashing, that's simple overhead for us. i think flash charges are only relevant to cost if you're a low cost, large qty contract printer.

Whether on a manual with one screen, or an auto with two, it's always more work, and needs compensation.

We have a price list for printing on darks and a different one for light colors.
Darks price list includes extra screen, printing and flash.
We stopped listing everything, customer gets a quote per shirt that includes everything.
This way we are also getting the screen charges on the re runs.
