Unique Locations: Printing over seams, zippers, collars or other unique locations will lead to ink build ups, coverage and consistency issues.
Production Time: Time begins once a complete purchase order is created, acceptable art file and garments are received and order is paid for.
Discharge Limitations: Discharge inks will only work on 100% cotton material. An exact PMS match is not possible and the imprint color will vary based on the color shirt and dye lot.
Dye Migration Warning on Polyester: Dye migration is a problem caused by dyes in polyester fibers transferring to and changing the color of plastisol inks. The colors most likely to migrate are red, maroon, kelly green, and some of the darker blues. Dye migration may appear immediately after the ink is cured, or hours, days, or up to two weeks later. Target cannot control dye migration and is a risk the customer must accept when printing on polyester or partial polyester garments.
All orders are custom-designed based on the customer's instructions at the time of ordering.
