About IPI Apparel Services

Iowa Prison Industries' Custom Imprintable Apparel operation is part of the Mitchellville Textiles division.

We offer embroidery, screen printing, and digital garment printing on a wide array of garments. We can personalize everything from dress shirts and polos for your organization to t-shirts and hats for your recreational sports team. We can create custom artwork for you, or you can supply us your own. Then we’ll apply it to any of our huge selection of brand name apparel or you can even supply your own apparel if desired.

IPI proudly offers competitive pricing and excellent customer service. Quotes are provided at no charge. Then you can place your order knowing it will be completed with the same high standards IPI has set for all our products.

Embroidery
IPI offers embroidery on virtually any of our clothing and accessory options. Embroidery charges vary based on several factors such as stitch count, number of colors, and logo complexity and will be quoted on a per project basis. 

Logo set-up: Initial logo set-up charge is $30 per logo. This is a one-time logo charge (you will only be charged the logo fee on the first order you place that uses that logo). The $30 fee will be waived on initial orders of 50 or more pieces. Logos should be provided in a high-resolution JPEG format.

Screen Printing *NEW*
New for 2020, IPI now offers traditional screen printing! Screen printing is available of most of our apparel and accessory options. Screen print projects will be custom quoted; pricing varies based on the number of colors in the logo, the complexity of the logo, and the size of the order.

Logo set-up: Initial logo set-up charges are as follows:
- 1- to 2-color logo: $25 per logo
- 3- to 4-color logo: $50 per logo
- 5+ colors: $75 per logo.
These are one-time logo charges (you will only be charged the logo fee on the first order you place that uses that logo). Setup fees will be waived on initial orders of 50 or more pieces with one to four colors. Logos should be provided in vector format (.EPS or .AI).

Digital Garment Print
Iowa Prison Industries utilizes a digital printing process that prints your design directly on your clothing. Digital apparel printing allows for full-color designs with lower set-up charges; no screens are used like in traditional silk screening. Digital apparel printing is only available on 100% cotton clothing and works best on light colored apparel (white, yellow, light tan, light grey, etc.).

Logo set-up: Initial logo set-up charge is $25 per logo. This is a one-time logo charge (you will only be charged the logo fee on the first order you place that uses that logo). The $25 fee will be waived on initial orders of 50 or more pieces. Logos should be provided in a high-resolution JPEG format.

Patches / Patch Application
While IPI does not produce embroidered patches to apply to clothing, IPI can sew your patches on clothing for a competitive price. Alternatively, we work with a patch supplier on your behalf.

Artwork Submission
IPI prefers to receive your artwork via e-mail in the formats listed above. However, if you are unable to provide in these formats, we will try to work whatever you can provide; extra charges may apply.

Colors
IPI can match thread and ink colors to virtually any color your logo. If exact colors are required due to brand guidelines, Pantone® colors should be provided.
