Apparel FAQ

APPAREL


Q: What brands do you offer?

A: Visit our products section for several of our vendor websites, or stop in our showroom to look at catalogs with a sales rep.  Give us a call if you are looking for something specific, we are here to help!

Q: Where can I see a sizing chart for my garment?

A: At the bottom of our FAQ menu we have added a general fit guide for reference. For specific items, check the manufacturer’s website, or please ask one of our sales representatives to locate one for you.

Q: Do you offer Youth / Infant / Big & Tall sizes?

A: Yes! Many products are available in a wide range of sizes, but usually in a more limited color palette for the specialty sizes. If we can’t find something from our usual vendors, we can special order certain products for you.

Keep in mind that smaller size shirts may require that your art be reduced to fit. You may also choose to have a Youth-sized and an Adult-sized version of your artwork, but this would incur additional setup fees.

Q: Do you have samples of shirts available?

A: Yes! We have a wide variety of t-shirts, polo shirts, and sweatshirts in the shop for customers to view. We have also added a new corporate sample section with many pullovers and button-up options to review.  Ask about our sample policy if you would like to test garments or sizes.

Q: What is the difference between 50/50 and 100% cotton fabrics?

A: Generally 50/50 fabrics are lighter in weight. They also tend to wrinkle less and to be somewhat more dye-fast. The polyester is also a stronger yarn and produces a more durable fabric. The 100% cotton fabrics are normally used in the heavier weights and are softer. Both fabrics will undergo some shrinkage when washed, but the 100% cotton will shrink slightly more.

Q: How much shrinkage can I expect?

A: All of the garments that we use are high quality name brands manufactured to keep shrinkage to a minimum. However, you should plan on some shrinkage during the first few times through the laundry. Typically, garments will shrink approximately 5% across the shoulders and 7% in the length. For a Large or XL garment, this is about 1-1.25 inches in width and 1.5-2 inches in the overall length.

Q: How long will the design stay on the shirt?

A: The printing will last the useful life of the shirt. What we mean by that is the design will show wear and fading at about the same rate as the garment. Normally this means a life span of several years.
