What is the turnaround time for transfers?
If your order is placed by 12 PM EST, then it will take 1 business day plus 1 day for each color in the artwork. This assumes that the artwork is print-ready (a vector or high resolution bitmap image). If your artwork was prepared from our templates, then it is print-ready. If your artwork needs to be modified or converted, then it takes an extra 1-2 business days to ship. Additionally, we charge an artwork fee ($25.00 for simple, or $50.00 for more complex). We do provide you with a free proof of your artwork, and you will own the finished artwork files.

Can you guarantee that the products I ordered will be available?
No, unfortunately we cannot. In the event that you order a product that is unavailable, we provide you with alternatives to choose from or refund the order. However, we work with all major suppliers, and therefore do our best to get you the product that you want.
Do I have to order my blank products from you?
No, you do not. However, we do reccomend it. The products we provide are what our transfers are designed to be printed onto, and we doubt you find a much better price. However, we are more than willing to just print your transfers if you already have blank products.

Yes! We offer wholesale pricing on a wide range of other decorated products that we print ourselves. These include full-color printing (shirts and other garments), embroidery (hats, polos, and bags), wide format printing (graduation banners, posters, and wall clings), and sublimation printing (mugs, plaques, and photo panels).
