While it is now easier than ever to order custom tshirt printing thanks to the internet, there are some common mistakes made by people in the process of designing and ordering. Here is a look at them and how to avoid them so you are not disappointed with your order when it is delivered to you.
Check the quality of the shirts and printing
The first thing you need to look into is making sure the quality of the printing and the garments themselves are where you expect them to be. Think about the thickness of the material as well as the type of material, whether you want it lined, its durability, the print type used, whether you are using embroidery on it, and so on. For example, a lot of people choose to have a favourite photo printed into a t-shirt of their choice but then are disappointed with the quality and the lack of detail in the image. This is because there are different printing methods, and if you want a photo to look great you need to look into DTG rather than choosing something like screen printing.
Some printing companies will send samples for you to check out. It might be a sample t-shirt or garment, or they might just send strips of material for you to check the quality that way. This is a good way to evaluate if you want to use them or not, especially if you intend to give them repeat business and are ordering in larger numbers. When it comes to quality and durability that depends on why you are exploring the option of shirt or jacket printing. If you have a printer you like the look of but they do not send samples you should take a look online at reviews and see what the general consensus is with past customers.
Make sure you know how long the process and shipping will be
The next thing to think about with custom tshirt printing is how long it takes to fill your order and how long they take to ship it to you. It tends to be the case that giving plenty of time for them to complete the process works best, but sometimes there are urgent demands so you need to make sure they can meet them. Customer reviews and social media could be a good way to check that out as well as on their website.
Be clear on the exchange and returns policy
Always make sure you know and accept their exchange and returns policy before you order your jacket printing or other garments. Sometimes mistakes happen where the wrong sizes are sent, or there is something wrong with the design, and you need to find a business that has a simple and fair process to follow should that happen to you. Again as well as reading their website to see what their policy is in writing, also check customer reviews and social media platforms to see if they follow through on what they promise.
