Faqs

Before you get started

Here are few things you might need to know

The Basics

Garment Decor was started by a group of printers who simply loved printing and wearing t-shirts. We just printed, and let other companies do the marketing, selling, and pricing.

Eventually, we realized we could provide a better service by cutting out the middlemen, and selling straight to the end user. We created Garment Decor to do just that, provide quality t-shirts at fair prices, straight from the printer to the wearer.

We’ll need to know what products your interested in, what your artwork looks like, and when you need your project complete. We’ll handle the rest.

I know everyone likes to say that they offer the best quality at the lowest prices, but they’re wrong. Garment Decor offers the best quality at the lowest prices. It is the founding principle of our company.

We are built from the ground up to fulfill this principle. We realized that by cutting out the middleman and printing ourselves, we can guarantee satisfaction while maintaining lower prices than the rest of the industry.

Standard orders take on average of 7-10 days. We offer rush services in as little as 5 days and super rush services in as little as 3 days.

The more you buy, the more you save. We offer bulk discounts and our price breaks start at 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, and 1,000. Black or white designs are the most affordable to print while extra colors and print locations increases cost.

Infuse extra branding into your products with our retail ready services. We offer fold, bag, neck tag printing, woven labels, sewing services, chenille patches, leather patches, embroidered patches, poly mailers, and more.

If it’s within our means to do it, we’ll make it happen. We offer super rush services in as little as 3-5 days and we’re known to make it happen!

Payments

Ordering and paying for your custom apparel is convenient. We first begin with a consultation. No payment is required during this stage. Then we will create a mockup based on your design.

The mockup will need your approval. During the design and review process, you will work with a merchandise specialist to get the correct size, color, and placement for your artwork. This process is FREE of charge.

Once you are happy with the mockup, you can place your order at the checkout.

We accept the following payment methods: 

• Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover
• PayPal

There’s also the option to checkout with PayPal Express. It’s a fast and secure way to bypass guest checkout and purchase our products online. PayPal has all of your details saved, so all it takes is an email address and password to safely complete your online purchase.

We accept all major credit cards such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover, or payment by cash, checks, and online payments through our client portal. 

PayPal Express is also another great option. It’s fast, secure, and allows you to bypass guest checkout. Paypal saves all your details, so it only requires an email address and password to complete your online purchase securely.

There is a $30 charge for returned checks. Afterward, you must make the next payment with cash, cashier’s check, credit cards, or PayPal.

Please contact us at info@garmentdecor.com or call us at (855) 942-7636. Our customer support is available Monday to Friday from 8:00 AM — 4:30 PM to assist you.

We require an upfront payment once you place an order. While we accept a 50% downpayment, our finance team requires a signed credit card authorization form. The remaining 50% will be charged upon completion of your order. We can also do partial pick-up or shipment if needed.

Products & Services Questions

For us, screenprinting is undoubtedly an art form (note: the hipster undertone there is unintentional, we swear). The attention to detail that goes into the screenprinting process is crucial – and because we understand the importance of that, we know how to deliver superior quality products. There are a lot of moving parts to the screenprinting process that must fit perfectly together in order to achieve the best end result – take it from us, we know a thing or two!

Why do leading organizations depend on Garment Decor for quality custom embroidery needs?  Because they love the service, prices, quality and love that we put into each product. Our team of embroidery experts goes the extra mile to ensure your embroidered apparel looks amazing!

Digital Printing utilizes the latest technology to provide a solution to printing smaller orders (less than 6 pieces) with an almost unlimited number of colors in the design.

For many customers, this is a great way to get full color prints on just a few shirts. Screenprinting an order that size with a large number of colors had previously been cost-prohibitive before the advent of Digital Printing. Also referred to as Direct-To Garment or Print On Demand, the process works much like a traditional inkjet computer printer, but for apparel!

Have you ever worked with a printer before? Working with most printers can be a pain. You have to find your old invoice, give them the number, assume they double-checked the details, and then voila! To your surprise, it doesn’t match. Or worse, what happens when you lose your invoice?!

Not with Garment Decor! We have an online portal that makes ordering and reordering merchandise super easy. Simply create an account and get your own project page.

Our online portal saves everything from past invoices to artwork approval and so much more. Want to reorder? Let us know your invoice number, and we’ll start a new quote! Or, login to your account and select “reorder.” It’s as simple as that!

Our production team makes sure that your design is perfect and ready before we begin production. Feel free to ask for an upgrade to a real sample before production!

Our Design Review and Repair covers placement, pixelation, alignment, and size. To learn more about this thorough process, please click here. We’ll take care of all the details and send you an email for final artwork approval.

Please Note: Once you receive an artwork approval request, please review it for all details, such as artwork size, colors, placement, garment style, brand, etc. It’s crucial to keep in mind that graphics seen on the computer will not look 100% the same on garments. Please allow leniency. To prevent this issue, kindly give us the Pantone equivalent for specific brand colors.

Once you select “Accept,” our team begins to work their magic! Our magic is irreversible, and once we start, we can’t go back. Therefore, please thoroughly review the artwork approval email before clicking “Accept”. Our machines take a ton of time and people to set up, so please only select accept if you are 100% on board. Fees will apply if changes are made.

Step 1: Artwork Submission

Please send us your high-resolution art files via email (info@garmentdecor.com). Our team will check every aspect of your design to ensure accuracy and quality.  

If you are working with a graphic designer or a marketing team, please ask for a print-ready design in high-quality format (preferably AI, EPS, PNG, or JPEG). 

Once submitted, all artworks and designs pass through careful Design Review and Repair before production. Keep in mind that we are humans — and humans make mistakes. Therefore, upon receiving your artwork approval email, assume that we have made a mistake. In other words, kindly review it for errors. From artwork size to colors and placement, don’t hesitate to let us know if a correction is needed. 

Step 2: Design Approval

Our project specialists will ensure that your entire experience is as smooth as possible from start to finish. All artwork approval is done online. To assure that we deliver high-quality results on time, we have different processes for new orders and reorders: 

  • New Orders: Our design team reviews your order, checks the size of your art, and inspects the design’s alignment to your garment of choice. We will enhance the design as we see fit, so your art will look its best! You are encouraged to make spot errors and make changes during this approval stage.
  • Reorders: Even if it’s a reorder, we will send samples before production. Please treat it as you would a New Order. Kindly confirm if the details match perfectly with your previous order. It’s best to assume that the person who may have approved the artwork is sick, did not categorize it correctly, and may have missed specific details. Therefore, we rely on your other set of eyes to spot any errors. If you have any doubt in your mind, don’t hesitate to triple-ask questions to ensure we are on the same page.

Step 3: Production

Production is the last piece of the puzzle. This process involves lots of teams, materials, and time to bring your design to life. We try our best to confirm all details beforehand because there’s no going back once we set up for production. Once we send the sample, it’s pretty much time to create your merchandise.

Our garment printing specialists will make sure that orders come out the way you envisioned them after sending us an email or texting us, “yes, good to go.” We always do our best to deliver on time, but any changes after the sample may push back the time a little.

It’s best to prioritize quality over not, right? At Garment Decor, we make sure to deliver the best version of your design on merchandise. Once you give it the “go” signal, we will do our best to meet the deadline — even if that means burning the midnight oil.

Our team works with any file format. While not required, we prefer certain file types in vector format or a high-resolution design at 300 DPI.

Our preferred formats:

  • .EPS (Vector File)
  • .AI (Adobe Illustrator)
  • .PDF (Portable Document Format)
  • .PSD (Photoshop Document)
Photoshop Settings
 
It’s best to work in these settings when creating artwork for apparel. 
 
Go to image then image size:
 

Then these should be the settings:
Then, when you have some artwork created, zoom in at 100% Or, you can go to view then 
 
 
Or, like this which one method is by seeing it on the tab. 
 
When zoomed into the artwork you should see crisp lines like this which means it will print crisp.
 
If you see blurry lines like this then it will print blurry.
 
 
Then save the file as a PNG like this:

Before we start printing your merchandise, we ensure that your design will look as good as you imagined it. Each art passes through our eagle-eyed graphics team for review and repair. 

We check for pixelation, placement, color, contrast and if it’s suitable for the designated print technique.

 

Keep in mind, artwork that you see on the computer does not always translate as precise when it comes to printing on apparel. The factors range from the fabric’s quality to the thickness of the fabric to the placement on the garment. Even each print technique will replicate a design differently. 

 

For example, it’s not possible to embroider a gradient that is perfectly smooth. Why? Well, the threads don’t “blend” like screen printing ink. So, gradients look better with screen printing then embroidery. But, it gets better than that! DTG and sublimation printing both replicate gradients magically, but they lack the opacity that you can achieve with screen printing. Stay tuned though! DTG printing is getting better and better and you can be sure we are using the latest technology.

Boxy or pixelated images may work for retro video games but not for custom merchandise. When it comes to printing on apparel, pixels matter. The higher the pixels, the more detailed and apparent the image will look. 

Pixelation happens when pixels are stretched to the point of fuzziness. It usually occurs when you try to enlarge a small image with lower pixels. You know when photos get blurry because you’ve stretched it too much? That’s pixelation.

Our editors clean up pixelation by increasing image size and drawing your outlines. The result is crisp and sharp prints you can see from a distance. It’s like getting a brand new pair of glasses for your design.

To avoid pixelation, we recommend that you prepare your artwork in vector as much as possible. Vector designs are more detailed and make separation easier for your garment printers. Ideally, we request customers to submit photos at 300 PPI. If that’s not possible, no worries! Our design team is always happy to help.

Screen printed pixelation fixed by Garment Decor

Afraid of getting designs off-center? We triple-check everything to ensure that your design is perfectly nestled in the sweet spot between the neckline and the hem.

(Photo of good placement vs. bad placement)

Placement can make or break the look of the garment. For example, imagine a left chest print right next to the armpit? Um, awkward? Yup! Or, imagine an upper back print placed right up on your neck? Totally off. 

There are certain print placements for popular locations such as left and center chest, upper back, sleeve prints, etc. Furthermore, each has it’s own popular size such as 4” left chest, 12” center chest, and 3.5” sleeve.

What is great about us though is that you can TOTALLY go custom! For example, want a chest print larger than normal, such as, 5”? Or, interested in a massive 14” wide chest print? We can do it! Please don’t hesitate to get creative with your sales rep from print size to specialty prints to incorporating two or more techniques. Let’s get creative! 

Afraid of getting designs off-center? We triple-check everything to ensure that your design is perfectly nestled in the sweet spot between the neckline and the hem.

We cannot guarantee ink colors based on visual mockups alone due to monitors varying significantly from one computer to the next. Therefore, Garment Decor will assign a color code or Pantone number from our ink selection list. As a result, your finished product may look slightly different in color than your original artwork.

Pantone numbers are the definitive way to ensure that we understand what color ink you would like to use. How, you may ask? Well, the key is to understand that every color is assigned a number and numbers can not be confused from person to person like colors can. In other words, take 2 people and ask them what shade of blue the sky is and you’ll likely get two different answers. But, if you assign a color a number, then there is no mistaking a digit from another digit. This is the concept behind “Pantone matching” and if you’re serious too then you should purchase a Pantone book which can be found at this link below:

https://www.pantone.com/formula-guide-coated-uncoated

We’ll include the color code or Pantone number in your artwork approval for you to confirm before we proceed with production. Should your design require a specific color, please give us your brand’s Pantone number ahead of time.

Please note and apologies to add a layer of complexity, but, even if we are given a Pantone number we can not promise exact color matching. This is due to various factors that affect inks and thread colors during production as well as other factors such as monitors, lighting, and apparel fabrics. Therefore, if color matching is crucial, we’ll start with asking what the Pantone number is and then creating a sample before production. This way you’ll confirm the actual print before we move forward!

Pantone Ink Options:

Want your art printed on different apparel for women, men, and youth? We print the same image size on all garment sizes, but we can also adjust print sizes for you. Please contact us to learn more about this process and our print sizes.

Due to the time involved with setting up the machines, the designs are sized per order. In other words, we print the same image size on all garment styles and sizes (from women XS to men 2XL  to youth YL. This is done because we can get pricing most affordable and turn around orders the quickest. 

A common question we get asked is, “how big should my design be to look good on all styles?” These are popular options:

  • If you’d like the design to appear large, then go at least 12” wide
  • We can print up to 15” wide at no additional charge for you
  • If you’d like the design to appear medium, then go between 8” to 11” wide
  • If you’d like the design to appear smaller, or minimal, then go no more then 8” wide
  • 3” x 3” is a popular left chest print (aka pocket print)

The design will appear a bit bigger on smaller shirts and a bit smaller on larger shirts, but this is very normal.

Full-color shirts look cool, but they can also be expensive. The solution: Convert colors to black and white and then print them on your choice shirt color. This method is quick and economical. If you are on a tight budget, please let us know, and we can recommend a cost-effective alternative. Get in touch with our project specialist at (855) 942-7636.

Please don’t hesitate to get creative with your sales rep from print size to specialty prints to incorporating two or more techniques. Let’s get creative! 

Detail is king, but keep shirt designs simple. The most classic designs get the message across in as little detail as possible.  

For example, did you know that the iconic “I Love NY” shirt was drawn on a napkin? It appeared on a tee and became popular worldwide. Draw inspiration from these simple designs.

Cut down on the number of colors and shine the spotlight on your design. Simpler colors draw attention to details such as your tagline and business name. It also means lower printing costs!

To get the best and most accurate results for colors, please specify each color used in the artwork. Getting the Pantone number of each color eliminates guesswork and makes it easier for your garment printers. We provide Ink Color and Pantone Matching before production to ensure color accuracy. However, please understand that colors may slightly differ from the monitor to your shirt.

Contrasts make designs pop. For best printing results, choose contrasting garment and ink colors. For example, you can go for red shirts with white prints (i.e., Coca-Cola shirts) or light grey shirts with black prints. We also offer a free design review and repair with each order, so shirts come out with great contrasts.

This is where mock-ups, such as the ones we offer in Garment Decor, come in handy. There is a difference between designs on paper, screen, and on a printed shirt. Seeing a shirt mock-up of your artwork helps you make better decisions about your design. 

Having said this, it’s best to scale your design to full size. To get the best dimensions for your artwork, you can use your own clothes for measurements. Simply strap a ruler to your shirt and use it to find the ideal proportions of your design. We can then scale and set-up a digital mockup of the design using your preferred measurements.

Simplify images – and get bigger savings – by choosing to print in grayscale. This is a popular choice for portraits and looks rad in black or white shirts. It also works great in company shirts and streetwear.  

Want to convert colored images to black and white? We can do that for free! Ask us about our grayscale screen printing services.

You can never go wrong with clever typography. Go for hand-drawn letters or eye-catching fonts. Statement shirts are a hit for Gen Z and millennials who like witty and funny tees. It could also get you lots of shares on social media. Imagine wearing one of these shirts. Smart, right?

(Sample of an awesome statement shirt made by Garment Décor)

Take your art from canvas to shirt! Custom apparel is a great idea for digital artists with an already established social media presence. Choose a popular work from your Instagram page and have it printed on different merchandise. 

We recommend DTG for printing small orders on demand, while screen printing is a cost-effective option for bulk. Screen printing is also perfect for artwork with lots of gradients.

The secret to starting a new clothing line is simply… to start. If you don’t know where to begin, why not experiment with different designs first?

Start ordering in small quantities. If your design becomes a hit, you can easily re-order using our online portal again!

Are you designing shirts for sports fans or for teen girls? Knowing your market helps you design shirts that people want to wear.   

Be ahead of the game and get inspiration from trends. Some of the trendy but simple designs include rainbows, pet portraits, typography, inspirational words, florals, and abstract line drawings.

Garments are part of society’s subculture and play a great role in our lives. Take a look at streetwear, pop culture, and sports. Take time to study how custom and promotional merchandise have evolved over the years to understand their value to your market. 

It’s also important to learn about the different types of garments and printing styles suitable for your project. For this reason, we created The Garment Decor Academy to be your one-stop source for learning. Feel free to check out our resources and blog on how to start your own clothing or promo product line.

Great designs come to life under the skilled hands of a professional printer. Garment printing is an art in itself. It helps to find printers in your local area who know the right techniques produce the best results. After all, your custom shirt design will only be as good as your printer.

You can try speaking to different companies to find the best method for your shirt design. But if you want to save time, why not contact us today?  

We do everything in-house. This means that we have the manpower and the machines for all kinds of garment printing jobs. We provide:

  • Screen Printing
  • Direct to Garment Printing
  • Digital Transfers
  • Embroidery

We also offer free design consultation, repair, and review to ensure that you get the best art for your clothing label. 

If you are ready to get started, you can send us a copy of your design at info@garmentdecor.com or schedule a 1 on 1 meeting with a merch specialist today. We’re looking forward to bringing your artwork to life!

Put your brand and message in unexpected places. We print on almost any location, including inside the garment (think: custom printed tags). We also print on sleeves, sweatshirt hoods, sweatpants legs, pockets, and anywhere you can think of! Give your customers a delightful surprise by printing in a non-traditional location.

Please note that shipping time is NOT included in our turnaround times. Shipping expenses are also the sole responsibility of the client. These expenses will be added to your invoice unless otherwise agreed upon before your order. Shipping costs are also quoted for your approval before we begin production.

Garment Decor assumes no responsibility for goods once they have left our facility. We would not be responsible for shipping to the wrong address if it were listed on your quote. Therefore, it’s important to check and correct your address before quote approval carefully.

Orders will be billed based on UPS, FedEx, USPS, OnTrac, and all other shipping service’s zone rates.

All orders will be bulk packaged, generally folded by:

  • 72 Shirts
  • 24 Hoodies
  • 50 Long Sleeves

Reordering

At Garment Decor, we make it easy to reorder your favorite merchandise. Our online portal saves all details from previous orders, so you can place reorders in a snap! Best of all, you can do it anywhere. 

Simply use your order link to go to your profile and select “re-order”. Click here to view a sample quote.

The order link will look like this:

https://garmentdecor.secure-decoration.com/user/quote/845a5be290218b327085070e0e81ef5623d1e30a?token=7a00688da67ad0931100ba3132bc74dac256f150

Our system is cloud-based, which means you can access it using your computer and mobile devices.

It’s important you thoroughly review your re-order to ensure the details are the same. Sometimes changes are made during production that don’t get translated back into the order. Therefore, we ask for you to accurately review details such as the garment type, color, and size as well as the artwork’s color, size, and placement. 

Note: Even though it’s a re-order we will still send you an artwork approval email. We rely on you to double check  the artwork thoroughly as if it’s a brand new order. Revisions may also push back the delivery date a little.

Don’t fret! Our design and production team have back-ups for your projects. Call our dedicated customer service specialists at (855) 942-7636 or email info@garmentdecor.com. Our friendly representatives are available Monday through Friday from 8 AM to 4:30 PM (PDT) to assist you. 

We will try to respond to your concerns within 24 – 48 hours.

Due to the nature of printing and different fabric lots, we cannot guarantee exact ink color matches on reorders. We will make every effort to match the original color as best as possible. If you know a reorder will be likely, please let us know, and we’ll try to keep it on hand if at all possible. Or, hang onto a garment and give it to us for the re-order. This will help us ensure an identical match.
