HOW OUR DROP SHIP SERVICE WORKS
What is drop shipping?
Drop Shipping is a service that allows you to print your designs on shirts and other apparel with limited up front risk, through preorders. We can host your design for sale online, print your garments, and ship to your customers for you.
We're happy to be able to offer this option to make our high quality water-based screen printing accessible to everyone while saving you space, time, and money. All you need is a great idea, and we'll do the heavy lifting!
Is Drop Shipping the same as print-on-demand?
Our Drop Ship service is different than print-on-demand because the garments are screen printed in bulk after orders are collected.
Print-on-demand typically uses a process called DTG (Direct to Garment) where the shirts are printed individually using a special printer that sprays the ink onto the garment. This usually leaves a thicker feel to the print and (in our opinion) is not quite as high quality as what we can offer you with screen printing. If you REALLY want to do print-on-demand, however, we do have an option for it. You can find more info here.
Our award winning screen printers use exclusively 100% water based inks, so you get the highest quality print possible with the softest results.
How long are the preorders?
The length of time that we run your preorders is up to you! We recommend anywhere from 1-3 weeks.
How long is the turnaround time after preorders close?
Standard turnaround time is 10-12 business days after the preorder closes and your print order is approved. This may be slightly extended during peak holiday season. We can confirm with you during the set-up process.
Do I have to host my design on your site?
If you already have an ecommerce store where you'd rather host your preorder, we can likely integrate our shipping platform with your existing site, or you can provide a CSV sheet for us to import.
Do I have to meet a minimum number of sales?
There will be a minimum order quantity for us to screen print your design, which we will go over during the set up process.
It is ultimately up to you to promote your preorder and meet or exceed that minimum. If less than 10 shirts are preordered, you'll have the option to refund customers. If for any reason you don't meet the printing minimum, we will ship your existing orders and any remaining units will go to you.
