What is Flash backing for colored shirts?  Flash backing is the process to prevent the dark color of the shirt from altering the color of the imprint. Usually, you would need only one flash backing for the entire imprint. The set-up is $25 for the flash backing.

What are white colored shirts less expensive?  White shirts are more in demand and cost less to produce (no dye). Therefore, you will find the best deals on white colored shirts. However, colored shirts are often used to match the theme of the business or event.

What are the recommended care instructions?  Machine wash warm, inside out, with like colors. Only non-chlorine bleach. Tumble dry medium. Do not iron. Do not dry clean.

What happens if the shirts we receive are not printed correctly? This is rare. If this happens, the error is usually within the artwork and is out of our control. If the misprint is our fault, we will replace the shirts at no cost to you.  All misprinted shirts must be returned to our warehouse.
