Every order will receive an online proof for customer approval.When viewing online proofs, please keep in mind these are computer generated versions of the overall layout and the finished product may look slightly different. The proof is to reference logo placement and to view colors selected for print. Everyone’s monitor /screen will display the colors in the proof slightly different. It is the customer’s responsibility to veiw the proof in it’s entiriey and check for any errors. Once approved, changes can not be made to the design or layout.
Also, the type of garment, blend and color all affect the final print color. This is normal and we try our best to counter act this whenever possible.

We use premium, high quality threads which come in a variety of colors to match your logo or design. Be sure to check out available colors below.
