What file format should I submit my design in?
For quality sake, we ask for files to be sent through to us in vector format. These file types include .EPS, .AI or .PDF. If you don’t have a vector file, we recommend 300dpi or larger in one of the following file formats .PSD, .TIF, .PNG, or .JPG. Font files, custom Pantones / brand colours, and a brand guide are also helpful to our design team and help to expedite the pre-production process.
If all of that sounds like another language to you, click the button below to talk to someone from our team about how to get started with your files.

Can I order different colour shirts or different style shirts with my order?
As long as you meet the minimum order quantity of 12 units per each design. For example, in order to receive a split of both black and white shirts for your design, you would need to order 6 black shirts and 6 white shirts. The same goes for styles. Assuming the artwork provided will work for different styles.
Can I get my order sooner?
Yes, we offer rush options of 10% per day. For example, if your order is $1000 and you need it 3 days sooner (than the standard 10 business day turnaround time), then a 3 Day Rush fee would be applied to your order, making it $1300.
How long will it take to get my shirts?
For a basic order with no add-on services, the standard turnaround time is 10 business days (from the time of approval and payment), plus transit time. Additional add-on services like hem tags or custom inside tags will extend your turnaround time.

How is my price determined?
There are many factors that contribute to the final price provided. Below is a brief breakdown for how this works when considering basic decoration techniques.
Your price is determined by the shirt style you select, and how many locations and colours your design requires.
Your price is determined by the shirt style you select, and how many total stitches are needed to embroidered your artwork. Meaning, the time it takes to complete the stitch. The bigger the design, the more stitches are needed to complete.
Can I order a sample of the garment before placing a full production run?
Just let us know what garment samples you're looking for and we'll get a sample order started for you.
Please note that garment samples are provided without decoration.
If I place a reorder, do I have to submit all of my art again?
We keep everything on file in order to make things easier for you the next time around.
Can you print over zippers or pockets?
Yes we can!
We use a few special print techniques to achieve great over the zipper prints.
What's the maximum print size?
We can print up to 14x21 for all your oversized printing needs!
Can you print with water based or discharge inks?
Plastisol inks are our preferred method of printing, as we find the inks are more vibrant and hold up longer over time.
If plastisol isn't your preference, let us know what your product goals are, and we'll work with you to achieve a solution that works best for your goals.
Can you match a custom Pantone colour?
Yup! We can match to any Solid Coated Pantone colour.
It can be tough to match the tone exactly as printing on fabric is very different to paper, but we'll get it as close as possible.
If you aren't able to provide a Pantone code with your artwork, we will find the closest match for you.
What is the difference between CMYK and Simulated Process?
Four Colour Process printing (also known as CMYK), essentially performs the same way that your ink jet printer does, blending four colours, (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black) to produce full colour images as opposed to spot colour images. Four Colour Process works best when printed on white or very light coloured shirts and does not work well on dark shirts. For full colour images on dark shirts, we recommend Simulated Process printing.
Simulated Process printing is an amped-up version of Four Colour Process. It is capable of producing very photo-realistic images with a high amount of detail. It uses traditional spot colours, and blends them in the same manner four-colour process, simulating full colour images. This process works well on both light and dark coloured garments. The ink colour count for simulated process jobs are often in the five to ten colour range, therefore making it the best process for higher quantity runs.
Can you print over seams?
We can, but we don't suggest it, as seams can interfere with the quality of the print.
Essentially, the smoother the surface, the better.
Do you offer any specialty inks such as Glow or Neons?
We do! Click the button below to see out speciality print services.
Can you match embroidery to a specific pantone?
Sometimes yes, sometimes no. Thread colour is somewhat limited compared against what we can achieve with custom mixed inks. But we always get as close as we possibly can to the original pantone of your design!
What will give me the best results printing CMYK?
Your CMYK design will be best translated if printed on a lighter coloured garment. We can still achieve a great print on a dark garment, but due to the nature of the process, a white or heather garment tend to perform better.
Can I order shirts that are not offered on your site?
Yes! We can source shirts from every major supplier. Our product catalog is a collection of our most popular styles, so if you have a garment in mind that you don't see within our catalog, simply let us know and we'll find it for you. It's likely that we can find it for you!
Can I supply my own shirts?
You can, but it's not preferred.
We're able to provide a much smoother experience when we are able to manage the all of the ordering and supplying of the garments. Plus, we have discounted rates with all major suppliers, so we can bring you the best price.

Are there limitations to what garments I can print DTG on?

What is the 3% under allowance policy and how does it affect the final invoice quantity?
Our 3% under policy is to insure the right amount of shirts will be printed. As screen printing is an art and not an exact science, often times there are small errors on press, from the shirt vendor or random acts of God, However, we will always refund your card if we do not meet the required amount up to 3% under the quantity Order. If the damaged amount is greater than 3% we will reprint the goods.
