Design+
I have a favorite photograph. Can you use it in my design?

Certainly. Markers can use an offset printing method appropriate for photographs. In order to prevent fuzzy or unclear prints, we strongly recommend the photograph or artwork be a high-resolution JPEG, TIFF, AI or PSD file above 300 DPI.

For other colourful designs, our design team can provide complimentary assistance in digitizing/vectorizing these images. Occasionally this process will add to your turnaround time.

Can I get a digital copy of the design?

Yes. After every free design consultation, we will send you a clear digital copy of the design. If it’s not perfect, let us know and we won’t rest until it is. When you’re happy with it, we’ll send your approved design to the factory for production.

Designs will be sent 1 to 2 business days after your payment is confirmed. Designs can also be sent before payment, when requested.

Can I make any shape I want?

You most certainly can.

Can I make any shape I want?

Our collection lines are more versatile than you’d expect — just ask your creative specialist and you might be surprised at what we can do.

Are there limitations to the number of colors I can have?

Not at all. We can do an unlimited amount of colors but for every nine colors of thread your product cost and speed are doubled. For most of our customers’ designs, though, nine colors is more than enough. You might also be interested in a printed patch if you’re really wanting something exceptionally colorful.

What is “offsetting?”

Offsetting is a technique in design where an image appears to have a shadow by duplicating the image and placing it behind the design and off to the side at an angle.

Can I do different colors of the same item and still get the order for the same price?

Most often, yes. It depends on what the colors and styles you’d like to switch out are — but your creative specialist will always configure order in the most economical way possible.

I have a photograph. Can you make it into a sticker?

Not a problem. For photos, we recommend printing only on white sticker materials, like our durable vinyl stickers. Clear stickers can also print photographs well, but the eventual surface will of course determine how well your photo turns out. The properties and colors of other specialty materials make it difficult to maintain photographic-quality colors, so we advise only black or dark/bold colors for metallic, hologram, and craft stickers.

In order to prevent fuzzy or unclear prints, the photograph or artwork must be a high-resolution JPEG, TIFF, AI or PSD file above 300 DPI. If you are unable to provide a high resolution photograph digital image meeting this specification, we cannot recommend printing a photograph onto your stickers.

For full-color digital printing of designs that are not photographs but have many colors and/or color gradients – like logos or artwork – we still suggest that you provide a hi-resolution digital image meeting the above requirements. Our design team can provide complimentary assistance in in digitizing/vectorizing these images. Occasionally this process will add to your turnaround time.

Can you add text or letters onto my stickers?

Of course! For best legibility, please make sure your letters are at least 1/8th of an inch tall.

Can you make stickers bigger than 12×12 inches?

Yes. our popular vinyl stickers can be printed up to a gigantic 52 x 52 inches, and other specialty materials can be printed up to 10 x 10 inches — still rather sizable.

Can I make a stickers with in a custom shape?

Yes. We offer custom, complementary contour cutting (say that four times fast) for all our stickers in addition to individually die cut, kiss cut, sticker sheets and rolls.

Acute corners, however, can not be cut perfectly sharp, like the points of an 8-point starburst shape. In these cases we will adapt your contoured border to be slightly rounded, and compatible with our laser cutting machinery.

Can you ship my stickers on the roll?

Certainly. This option will require a large enough order quantity and sticker size to accommodate a roll and may increase turnaround time and shipping cost.

Do you have specific artwork requirements that I need to submit?

If you want to have a photo you want to be made into a sticker, please provide the photo at 300 dpi (dots per square inch) and at a size as large of the actual print area.

What is the difference between die cut stickers, kiss cut stickers, and sticker sheets?

Let’s take it one by one:

Die cut – individually contour-cut around your design for a sticker that resembles your logo’s or your image’s outline.
Kiss cut – a special cut around your design leaving a small gap in the paper around the sticker, making it easier to peel off with short fingernails. You have the choice to keep the sticker layer on the excess border, or we can remove it for you, and only leave the backing layer.
Sticker sheets – feature multiple contour-cut stickers on a blank or designed sheet, allowing you to group stickers or place explanatory writing or graphics around them.

How many colors can my design have?

Screen printed apron designs can receive a maximum 10 colors for traditional spot screen printing (solid colors only, no gradients).

Embroidery can accommodate up to nine colors per location, but we advise no more than five for clarity’s sake.

Both screen printing and embroidery can be applied to a single apron. Simple but brilliant, like chocolate-dipped bacon.

Full-color printing is the only option that allows for unlimited colors and color gradients. Dye sublimation full-color printing is available at low quantities in only one style/SKU, but we offer cut and sew aprons, too — although generally requiring higher quantities before they become an economical choice with the highest level of customization.

Can I get screenprinting or heat transfers on my beanies?

No. The reason we don’t allow this option is that screenprinting or heat-transfers on knit fabric looks terrible the moment you start to wear it, cracking as the fabric underneath it moves and stretches. The designs you here are either patches that can move and stretch along with the fabric or designs actually knit into the fabric. It’s indeed possible, as some of our competitors will say – but you won’t want to wear it more than once.

Can I submit finished artwork?

Absolutely! While we have a team of world-class designers who can create incredible images from scratch, we know we also have incredibly creative customers. If you don’t need design help, you can submit completed artwork files to be prepped for production.

What if I’m not happy with the design?

We are happy to make as many edits as necessary to make your design perfect.. You’ll be able to communicate with our team throughout the process via a dedicated customer dashboard that lets you make note directly on your design. Please note that a prolonged editing process will add time to your overall production timeline, so clear descriptions are a must for minimizing the number of edits required. You can even upload images or sketches to help show us your idea.

What do I need to submit to get my order started?

You’ll need to fill out the quote form above so we get the general details of your order. You can also submit artwork, sketches, reference images, et cetera, so we get a better idea of your vision. If there’s any additional information we need, your representative will reach out to you.

What kind of mockups can I expect?

You’ll receive a digital mockup once your design has been created by our team. After you approve your mockup, we’ll produce a physical sample of the ITEM and send you images from the factory. Additionally, you can request to receive a physical sample in the mail – note that this will add time to your overall production timeline as well as a shipping fee.

General+
How long does the ordering process take?

Each order’s turnaround time depends on your design and its complexity. During the design and manufacturing processes, your representative will be able to provide you with delivery and shipment estimates — you’ll also receive email updates as your order makes it way through our system.

We’re often capable of meeting tight deadlines if we know about them as soon as possible. If you have a specific deadline, please tell your representative right away so we can work with you to beat it.

Do you have more customization options that aren’t listed here?

Yes, we do. Through our vast network of factories, we have access to literally hundreds of special options. Tell your representative what you’re envisioning and they’ll be happy to suggest options that suit your design.

Mockups+
Will I get a physical or photographic sample before my entire order is manufactured and shipped?

We don’t offer samples for our stickers orders because our printing methods mirror exactly what you see in your digital proof. If you like the mockup, you’ll love your stickers. In the slight chance you find something wrong with your finished product, we will offer a redo or refund as deemed suitable.

What’s this strange magenta/pink color doing on my design mockup? I don’t want that on the actual sticker!

No need to worry — this is only a representation where your stickers will be cut to shape. This serves as a guide for our laser cutting machines’ calibration, and goes to show how what you see in your mockup is exactly what gets sent to the factory floor!

Pricing+
How do you price your stickers?

We put a lot of thought into our prices. Some of the more important variables are quantity, stylistic add-ons, size and “surface area” of the modifications  — i.e.,  how much printing or other graphically-related work does the project require? The person most equipped to give you a price for your product is your sale representative or our useful Create Your Product tool — both can give you a detailed analysis of your quote and what things featured into our per-item price.

Product usage+
Are your stickers waterproof? Weatherproof? Outdoor-use ready?

Our vinyl stickers are the most water and weather proof and best-suited for outdoor usage. In addition, all vinyl stickers are laminated to resist fading from exposure to the sun. Our standard adhesive is suitable for outdoor use, and can be removed with a common solution if need be. We also offer a “permanent adhesive” option, which is truly permanent. Truly. You’ve been warned. We’re still trying to get this one off our arm (just kidding).

Our metallic, hologram, and clear stickers are also suitable for outdoor use, with their own protective laminates and strong adhesives. The most rugged, however, is still our vinyl option.

Our craft paper stickers (and other paper stickers) are for indoor use in dry settings only.

Production+
What is the difference between die cut stickers, kiss cut stickers, and sticker sheets?

Let’s take it one by one:

Die cut – individually contour-cut around your design for a sticker that resembles your logo’s or your image’s outline.
Kiss cut – a special cut around your design leaving a small gap in the paper around the sticker, making it easier to peel off with short fingernails. You have the choice to keep the sticker layer on the excess border, or we can remove it for you, and only leave the backing layer.
Sticker sheets – feature multiple contour-cut stickers on a blank or designed sheet, allowing you to group stickers or place explanatory writing or graphics around them.

Do you have a minimum order quantity for stickers?

No, we don’t. If you’re looking for a no-minimum sticker producer, we’re one of the few folks who do that. Still, we recommend that if you’re going the through trouble to order one, you might as well have a dozen or more made — your sales representative would be happy to show how the per-price unit goes down tremendously after even ten items. That’s because we spread the cost of your unique custom sticker’s set-up across however many that you order.

That said, if you want something that’s truly one of a kind, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll be happy to make a limited edition run of just one.

Sales and Customer Service+
What happens when I request a quote?

We get back to you within twenty-four hours and usually much faster with a quote for your order and the email address of your personal assistant for any questions you might have. Your project could be under way within a day.

What should I know before placing an order with your company?

Sometimes we work with customers who have an exact idea of what they want; others have only begun the creative process. You don’t need to know “anything” before you work with us; we help you through the creative process and production process to whatever extent you need. That’s our job.

We’d also love you to know that, working with us, you’re working with a company that handles products for global fashion brands — and in fact, there’s a good chance you might have run into one of our goods and not known it. Check us out and send us an email or a quote request — you’ll find that we’re upfront, informative and excited about any creative projects.
