We do not print on customer supplied apparel for many reasons. Garments available directly to apparel decorators are specifically produced and manufactured to be printed on – being free from chemicals and hard detergents used for retail sold items. We can not guarantee quality of the print on retail purchased items so we don’t offer this as an option. Plus, you generally don’t save anything in trying to do so.

Your design is created and/or edited from information provided by the customer. When viewing online proofs, please keep in mind these are computer generated proof renderings and the finished product may look slightly different.
Also, the type of garment, blend and color all affect print color. This is normal. We try our best to counter act this whenever possible.
Up to three (3) revisions and/or edits are provided to the design as a service charge may apply.
Our standard production time is 7-10 business days (does not include weekends or holidays). Production time begins after customer proof approval and payment has been received.

Quotes are valid for a period of 5 days. They are based on the current pricing set by the suppliers and manufactures of blank apparel.
Screen printers can not stock every type of apparel and color as we are not in the clothing/warehouse business. We are apparel decorators who order blank apparel from suppliers as orders come in to us. After 7 days, your quote may need to be adjusted so we encourage you to lock in your quote with payment as soon as possible.
If you do not know the breakdown of sizes you will need, we will provide you with a quote based on sizes S-XL. Sizes 2XL and above will have an additional charge.
After you receive your online quote and payment has been made, your order is moved into the design phase. Here is where our design team works on your logo/design. If you submitted hi-resolution artwork, we will ensure it meets our quality standards to achieve the best print possible. If we are creating a logo/design, you will work with our designers to bring your creative ideas to life.
From there, you will receive an online proof of your design. We allow up to three (3) revisions without any additional charge. Once you approve the design, it’s off to production. Our production time is generally 7-10 business days (after proof approval) – however, we strive to complete orders well within that time frame.
Please view our standard print colors on the screen printing page of our website. For specialty inks or custom colors (PMS Color Matching), there is an additional charge. Please keep in mind – the colors on the chart are for reference only, as everyone’s screen and/or home printer will display these colors a bit differently.
Also, there are several factors that could affect the final print such as apparel color and the type of fabric printing on. This is normal and we try to counter act this as much as possible. In general, colors are more vibrant on lighter colored garments.
During the quote and/or ordering process, it is the customer’s responsibility to make UrbanFly Apparel aware of the need for PMS color matching. Otherwise, our standard print colors will be utilized.see screen print info
We offer many thread color options to choose. There are no PMS color matching for thread colors as we are not “making the thread”. With screen printing, we can offer PMS Color Matching as we mix colors together in a specific formula to achieve your custom color. This is not possible with thread colors. With the vast array of colors we have available, we are able to closely match your desired colors.
Please refer to the Thread Color Chart on the Embroidery Page for available thread colors.see embroidery page
Direct to Garment (DTG) Printing is a method of apparel decoration where your logo or design is printed directly onto the garment using a special printer equipped with high quality inks formulated for textiles. There is no need to worry about how many colors are in your design, like screen printing.
All DTG print garments should be washed prior to wearing as they are pre-treated with a special chemical prior to printing. For more information regarding DTG Printing options, please reference the DTG Printing page on our website.see DTG page
For team apparel or garment personalization, we utilize professional heat applied vinyl or heat applied materials unless otherwise specified. All our heat applied materials are child safe and meet CPSIA guidelines.
If you would like to set up an online store on our site for group ordering, there is an additional 3.5% charge added to each order. This is the service fee charged by credit card processing services. We add this charge to each online group order as this extra cost is not factored into your price/quote.
This only applies to pages we step up for group ordering and not other items on our site.
We do not offer production samples as this is extremely costly. We offer online renderings and proofs of your items which closely represent what the final product will look like.
We offer special pricing to non-profit and charitable organizations. Please contact us for a quote and see what we have to offer.
Wait at least 24 hours before the first wash. This allows the ink/decoration methods used to settle into the garment. We recommend washing your decorated garments in cold/warm water with like colors and hang to dry or dry at low temperature. Do not iron over imprint area (does not apply to embroidery). Taking extra care of your garments will help prolong their appearance.
For safety reasons, we do not apply rhinestones or rhinestuds to infant, toddler or youth clothing (under age 5) under any circumstance.
Our Limited Editions (UrbanFly Apparel Co.) are printed using two methods since they are printed as ordered. We imprint the design using professional heat applied material which gives an amazing look and feel. We also screen print the designs onto the garment. With either method, we are CPSIA compliant which means all decoration methods are safe for children’s clothing. Please note, we do not print rhinestone designs on children’s clothing for safety reasons.
Please note, all limited edition garments are printed upon ordering and we can not honor returns or exchanges.
