The turn around time on your order starts when we have all information required to complete your order (all artwork, garments, all fonts , all shipping info, and in applicable cases after the online store has closed.) In addition to any requested mock-ups that have been approved by you. Delay in receipt of *any* of this info could result in production delays. Our current turnaround time is 2-3 weeks on complex orders, we do offer RUSH service for those who absolutely need it ASAP.

 

We are an authorized dealer with high volume sales in many brands. This allows us to offer top quality brands at lower prices than our competitors.

Yes. Mixing dark colored garments with light or white garments is fine, however in some cases there is a price difference between all three types of colored garments. Depending on the brand some Adult sizes ranging between Small to X-Large are quoted as the same price, with 2XL and larger sizes priced higher. Youth sizes are also priced differently than adults depending on brand and garment color choice.

Note: Some designs will not work on both dark and light colored garments, some may require one of the image’s ink colors to be changed
to produce the correct results. Ink color changes are the same as the screen fee $20.00.

Yes. There is an up charge per piece for customer supplied garments. Why? Obviously we don’t make any profit off the garments, we are assuming all the risk if a garment is damaged or misprinted which would require us to replace it. Usually when we receive shirts for an order, we purchase extra to insure against such situations. Since most customers don’t allow for spoilage, factors such as finding out where to get a replacement, ordering, shipping, etc. require us to cover these costs. Items should contain material makeup information(IE. 50/50 or 100% polyester, etc. ). In some cases the printer may require a sample of the material, to conduct tests for proper ink adhesion, if the content cannot be provided or if the item has never been printed on before.

We carry a wide variety of stock colors to choose from, but if a custom color is necessary, we utilize a mixing system specifically designed for mixing Pantone colors (PMS). We recommend choosing uncoated colors from the Pantone color guide since uncoated paper better mimics a white 100% cotton t-shirt. Printing the same color on a darker shirt may cause the color value to shift and may require an under base of white ink to maintain the original color. Custom mixing of colors does carry an extra charge.
