Drop Shipping is only available for bulk orders and not for individual mailorder
(ex: Printing 100 shirts, sending 25 to 4 different locations)

Does my order come with a mockup?

All orders will come with a mockup for you to approve before we proceed into production. We have two mockup processes depending on the scope of your needs: 

  1. Customers that know what they want and supply print ready artwork and size/ink specs, will receive a production mockup once their invoice payment is finalized.
  2. Customers who need mockups produced before placing an order, shirt and ink colour combos, or similar; can purchase pre production mockups from our Graphics Services page. 
Can I order different sizes and colours as part of my bulk apparel order?

You can mix and match shirt sizes as much as you want with a few ground rules. These rules are designed to make production easy, and your costs low. 

  1. Different apparel colours can be ordered in a minimum of 24 colours per style. Within that 24, you can mix and match sizes as much as you want.
  2. XXL and larger sizes will cost more. Some sizes may not be available. 
  3. There are no backorders for colours or sizes that aren’t available. 

Keep in mind that changing shirt colours may require a design change to our printing screens and thus an entire new press setup. In these situations, each design will have to be run as a separate order. 

What are you standard print sizes?

All our screen printing presses will print 14″x17″

Most full-sized prints are no wider than 12″

Left Chest prints are often 3.5″-4″ wide

How do you choose ink colours?

HOW DO YOU CHOOSE INK COLOURS?

All our apparel inks are chosen using the Pantone Matching System, chosen out of the Solid Coated book. Our ink mixing system has the ability to match every colour in the book.

If you are expecting a certain colour, then you are required to send us a Pantone colour that you have chosen out of an actual Pantone Book. Any Pantone colour is chosen via an online webpage may be influenced by your computer monitor and we can’t assume colour accuracy.

Always remember that colours will look different if you’re not printing on a white underbase, or using one of our vintage or tone-on-tone printing options.

VINYL STICKERS

All your sticker questions are answered here.

What is the production time for vinyl stickers?

Production time for Sticker orders that are placed online, are approximately 7 business days after final artwork approval.

Can I order X amount of stickers, but split the order into different designs?

All sticker prices are “per order” and include the setup time for each submitted design.

If you need to order several different designs, then you would have to place a corresponding order for each design.

How long will my sticker graphics remain bright? Will the graphic wear off?

All our sticker products are printed ontl 3.5 mil vinyl, with Roland TR2 industrial sign inks. The outdoor rating for the vinyl and ink is 3-5 years.

To double the lifespan of your stickers, we laminate each sticker with a UV resistant laminate. This laminate not only filters UV light to prevent fading, but it also adds a thick layer of transparent material that protects the ink from rough abraison.

Can you make stickers at different sizes that listed on your webpage?

We can make stickers up to 4 feet x  feet wide.

If you are looking for a specific sticker size that we don’t have pre-loaded, then please feel free to email us and we will add the size to our inventory.
