SCREENPRINT PRICE INCREASE
Higher raw material, transportation costs are driving the latest round of price increases, and there are likely more to come.
To our loyal customers, phriends, and family, we want to update you on the ongoing price increases throughout the printing industry. Maintaining current screenprint pricing and adhering to our strict beliefs of producing top-quality products Team Phun is known for has been a constant challenge this year.

"The printing ink industry in North America is facing unprecedented challenges in raw material feedstocks, supplies, and freight," wrote John Copeland, executive director of NAPIM.

What this means for you is that our prices will then increase so as not to sacrifice the standards you have come to expect from us at Team Phun.
As always, we appreciate your loyalty to our brand, vision, and quality of products and services. We will maintain transparency when increases happen and appreciate your patience and understanding as we all get through this.
Please feel free to send us any questions you may have.
