How long does it take from the time I place my order?
The original order takes 5-7 days, depending on the complexity of the design or logo. Re-orders take only 5-7 days.
Why do dark t-shirts cost more?
Dark t-shirts cost more because of the cost of the dyes and the more involved printing processes.
How large an image area can you print?
We can print up to 24″wide by 24″ tall. Our recent project with Which Wich and The Nowitski Foundation has great visual impact due in part to the oversized 19.5″ X 22″ imprint of 7-foot tall Mavericks center Dirk Nowitski (see attached image).
Can you convert an RGB image to a mechanical image without completely redoing the art?
Yes, through spot process, a folder in Adobe Photoshop, an RGB image can be converted into a mechanical image in up to 10 flat colors.
Why use water base inks?
Water base inks are used on white grounds where an extremely soft “hand” is desireable (i.e. towels), or, on garments where breathability and coolness is needed (kitchen whites that need laundering).
