When preparing press-ready digital files, what size should I build my file to?
Please build your press-ready digital files to bleed size by adding 0.1″ dimension for business cards and postcards, and 0.125″ for all other products.

What is the required bleed?
Our standard bleed is 0.1″ or 0.125″ added to each overall dimension, but size varies by product. Files not built correctly may delay the order, or may add costs.

What if my cards don’t bleed?
We require ALL files to be built to the full bleed dimension specified for each trim size. We automatically trim 0.1″ or 0.125″ off of each edge, which will result in the desired trim size.

How do I prepare files for trim?
Simply add 0.1″ or 0.125″ to each overall dimension of your digital layout. Example: a 5″ x 7″ would have a bleed size of 5.1″ x 7.1″. (Size varies by product.)

Do you have any downloadable templates?
Yes, use the Resources tab at the top of the page then click on Download Templates.

Apparel FAQs

Are your T-Shirts screen printed or are they iron-on transfers?
We screen print ALL t-shirts with the exception of digital printed t-shirts. “Photo” or “digitally imaged” T-shirts are printed on directly. We also use CAD-cut vinyl letters which are used for player names on the backs of “team” t-shirts; they are applied with a heat press.

Will the printing fade on my shirts after a few washings?
No. The printed images on screen printed t-shirts are very durable and will hold up for a long time as they are directly printed onto the garment using plastisol ink. “Wash” tests that we’ve conducted in our shop also prove that the printing on “Photo” or “digitally imaged” t-shirts are durable and holds up to many washings before fading begins to occur. Also, however the image is printed on your shirts, the image will not peel off and can’t be otherwise removed.

What is the largest size that can be printed on a T-Shirt?
The maximum image size that we offer is 12″ X 16.”

Do you sell transfers that I can apply on my own shirts?

Do you offer “youth” sizes?
Yes. We offer youth small (6-8), youth medium (10-12), and youth large (14-16).

Do you offer 2X, 3X, 4X, etc. size shirts?
Yes. We offer up to 6X on some of the garments that we offer. However, not all colors are available in these size shirts. Call or e-mail for availability. Other charges apply.

Can I mix the shirt sizes in my order?
Yes. You can mix the sizes any way that you need to complete your order.
