UMD Print Shop (Heavy Paper in Large Format)

114 W. Superior Street
You can bring in your blank t-shirt or bag and they will print for around $22.

Sheldon Printing (Up to 4 x 8 foot sheet)
124 E. Superior Street
Best to have several people printing together and bring in your own materials. It will be around $100 for a full sheet and $50 for half. If you bring your designs together and have around 4-6 people per sheet then you each pay $15-25 per person.
