Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions

(some fine details of conditions to think about that other shops might not elaborate on)

Turn around times

Current turnaround is 5-8 business days. This starts when we have received everything from you (i.e. final print ready art, deposit for the job, and approval for your mockup). Once this is received, we will begin running your job. This time does not include any add on’s including (but not limited to) shipping, last minute changes to your order, holidays, or any other unforeseen circumstances. We are also not responsible for any delays in shipping with any shipping company.

Changes to an order

Any changes to an order after the order has been approved and has begun its production time will cause further delays and will be subject to a $50 change fee on top of any additional costs the changes will occur. Please be diligent in making sure the final mockup is exactly what you want when giving approval to optimize turnaround time and cost. Cancellations to an order before approval is given is subject to a 20% restocking fee. Cancellations to an order after approval is given is subject to a 50% restocking fee on all unprinted goods. All printed goods cannot be cancelled and/or refunded.

Rush Fees

Any requested turnaround time that is less than our standard times, a rush fee will apply. Our rush fees are as follows:
1 business day = 100% rush fee
2-3 business days = 50% rush fee
4-5 business days = 25% rush fee
6-8 business days (a guaranteed date): 10% rush fee

Artwork requirements

Screen printing can only be as good as the artwork. Although we can work with a variety of files, we recommend 300 DPI (Photoshop) OR Vector (Illustrator) artwork. This will always be the best output possible. We also require for the art to be perfectly sized and scaled to how you want it to look on the final print. (with which we provide templates to assist with this). We can’t be responsible for the final quality of the print due to poor artwork. If we foresee any problems with your artwork, well be sure to inform you. Likewise, if you have questions about your artwork, please ask us before approval of your final mockup so that we can correct these problems before your job is run.

Quotes / Estimates

Finalized quotes expire in 15 days from the day of issue. Quotes are also subject to change upon review of the graphic. You will usually receive an estimate within 24 working hours of your quote request.

Artwork Approval

We will always send out a final mockup of your job before going to print. This mockup will usually detail the quantities, sizes & color of the goods, image size / placement, ink color, and close up of the final artwork. This is your chance to change any details of your job. Once approval is given, anything overlooked is not our responsibility. Please ensure that everything is concretely accurate with all details before giving up final approval.


We wish there was a machine that could manually construct the perfect T-shirt, but unfortunately all garments are handmade. Because of the nature of these conditions, each and every garment has its own unique quality and sometimes, slight damages (including slight inconsistencies in color, size, cut, construction and shade of the garments). Although we try to remove any/all recognizably damaged goods as we print, we aren’t responsible for the occasional oversight of damaged product getting into your batch.


Due to our extremely calculated prices that we have, we are always striving to keep our costs down and give those savings back to our clients. In this, we don’t charge any set up fees for any jobs that we produce. These screens belong to us, and unless you specify in advance that you want to purchase a screen (roughly $10 fee), we will keep the screens to reclaim and use for future jobs, thus lowering the cost for everyone in the long run.


Although we have many years of experience in screen printing, due to the nature of the work, accidents still happen. We aren’t liable for these small under runs that occur during printing. Usually spoilage doesn’t exceed 5% of the total of a job, and although we try our best to get you the exact number, we aren’t responsible for spoilage for up to 10% per design. If you want exact numbers or quantities for your job, please bring or order extra to compensate for these inconsistencies. When we deliver a shortage of your product, you will never be charged for items that you do not receive. We give a 48-hour window from the time of pickup for the client to inspect their garments for correct quantity and quality control. Please know that after this 48-hour window, our replacement policy expires.

Replacement Policy

Although this has never happened to our shop, we foresee messing up an order and it being our fault entirely. (EX: the mock up was approve with the correct image, but then the shirts got printed on the wrong side, or the image got printed upside down). If this happens, and it is 100% our fault, then we will be liable to replace and reprint the exact same shirts for free. No refunds can be made, but a completely new identical set of shirts can be made up and printed as a replacement to the damaged goods. We will require that all old damaged and imperfect goods be returned to us before the replacements goods will be issued.


We are usually great at quoting a job perfect the first time. Sometimes, due to the complexity that quoting can sometimes bring, we overlook small details that might change the price of a job slightly. Please be aware of what we are quoting you for so that you can too help us find these small overlooked details, if they exist. We will always tell you of any price difference before continuing on your job so that we aren’t surprising you by a price jump after the job is finished. Note: Quotes sent for a job are only good for 15 days from the day the quote is sent.

Pantone + ink color

Mixing inks is sometimes a tricky thing, but due to our extensive experience, we can guarantee to mix your ink colors to a few shades of what you give us in your final print ready artwork. Giving a Pantone color is also a very good reference to have. If you require an exact pantone color match, please let us know ahead of time (as extra fees will apply). NOTE: due to differences in colors of computer monitors and variances in dry to wet color choices, the final product might slightly vary from the original artwork. Also, there might be slight variances of color even when reordering items with the same exact ink color (as colors change slightly with every mixed batch).

Care Instructions

Remember that screen printing is a very delicate process. Although the process of screen printing is permanent, and our methods are finely tuned to set our ink on a shirt for its lifetime (unless otherwise stated), the care of a garment is key to obtaining a lifetime of a beautiful and flawless image. Some keys are: washing inside out in cold water, drying on low heat (or just air drying all together), and if ironing, iron around the stencil to preserve the artwork. We are not responsible for garments that aren’t cared for properly.

Tag Printing

When printing inside care labels inside a garment, sometimes the image that is being printed can show thru the garment to the back of the garment (more with lighter colored garments). We take all precautions necessary to not make this happen, but sometimes its inevitable. A dense image that uses more ink used to be printed has a higher chance of showing through. If printing on light garments, its best to keep artwork light and non-detailed to avoid this completely. Also, when trying to print an image on the top center back of a shirt, which is the same place the tag print is located (opposite sides of the shirt), those graphics can conflict and show thru on each other, making it difficult to read each of them. Keep this in mind when organizing the placements of artwork.

Intellectual Property

Although we do our best to make sure we are only printing imagery that is owned by person ordering the goods, this is impossible to do in all cases. We will never print something that is blatantly infringing on the rights of a copyright holder, but Print Renegades will not be responsible for anything related to the infringement of others. Pursuant to Title 17 of the United States Code, Section 512, we have implemented procedures for receiving written notification of claimed copyright infringement and for processing such claims in accordance with such law.

Additional Terms

All orders must be paid in full before your job is picked up or shipped out. When necessary, we love to be given creative control on elements of your job to put our touch on things, but when giving us creative control on some or all elements of a print job, we aren’t responsible for anything we do that you find unsatisfactory. As always, we will be open and communicative with you as to exactly what we will be doing and what direction you want to go, but once we start moving forward, its in our court and we will use our style and creativity to make a unique piece for you.


You agree to defend, indemnify and hold Print Renegades and its affiliates harmless from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys’ fees, arising from or relating to your use of the service provided by Print Renegades, your violation of this Agreement, or your violation of any rights of another. This agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of California and, where applicable, by federal law.

Prices and Policies

Print Renegades has the right to change and alter pricing at any time without notice.

Print Hints

(all useful info and knowledge about pre printing and production before going to press with your job)

Tag Printing

When printing inside care labels inside a garment, sometimes the image that is being printed can show thru the garment to the back of the garment (more with lighter colored garments). We take all precautions necessary to not make this happen, but depending on the weight of the garment, sometimes it’s inevitable. A dense image that uses more ink when printed has a higher chance of showing through. If printing on light garments, its best to keep artwork light and non-detailed to avoid this completely. Also, when trying to print a separate image on the outside top center back of a shirt, which is the same place the tag print is located (opposite sides of the shirt), those graphics can conflict and show thru on each other, making it difficult to read each of them. Keep this in mind when organizing the placements of artwork.

All Over Prints

Printing all over prints is a short cut of large format printing, then cutting/sewing the printed fabric together. All over printing is possible, and sometimes cheaper than cut & sew when doing smaller runs of a design, but is a very difficult and inconsistent form of printing. In screen printing, anything that is printed over seams has potential to produce inconsistencies in the print. Although we will always be up front about this before taking on a job, we are not responsible for any inconsistencies that happen due to this nature of screen printing.

Foil Transfers

Foil printing is the least permanent decoration that we use. Although we take every possible precaution to permanently bind foil printing to the garment, it largely requires to be maintained and cared for in order to keep its permanency and brilliance. If not cared for properly, foil has tendency to tarnish after washing and possibly flake off after a few washes. We recommend including washing instructions with all foil-decorated garments. All foil garments should be washed inside out and never heat dried. Large solid areas of foil may exhibit slight speckling. We do everything to minimize this effect but sometimes is inevitable and for this, we feel foil is generally better suited for distressed looks, accents and designs with primarily negative space.

Discharge Printing

Through the advancements of modern science, discharge printing has come to be an amazing way to print on dark garments but to keep the super soft feel. Although this is an amazing advancement, there are still some downfalls of this style of printing. Mainly, not all shirts discharge equally, given that each shirt color has slightly different dyes that are used to attain that color on the final product. Because of this, discharge reacts differently to certain colors, leaving it not able to discharge evenly all the way through like other colors. These colors (generally in the green / blue / purple color spectrum) do not discharge well. Also, sometimes there is also a slight crusty feel on top of the ink after these shirts are printed, due to the bleaching effect. This will come right off after the first wash, leaving the shirts very soft with absolutely no ink feel.

Printing Over Seams

The art of perfect of screen printing requires a seamlessly smooth surface. (ex: sometimes when printing large quantities, and a small thread from one of the shirts gets onto the pallet where we are printing, and a shirt gets put on over it and printed, you can see that small thread thru the ink on the shirt). So, printing over uneven surfaces is much more difficult and requires some tricks in order to make it look good. It’s possible to do, and sometimes people love the way that an inconsistent print looks (being worn and tattered). Depending on the thickness and type of ink used when printing over seams, there will be inconsistencies in the print. We will always be up front with all potential inconsistencies before going to press, but we are not responsible for these inconsistencies when printing over any uneven areas.

Jumbo Prints

This size of printing is something that has become very popular. People sometimes want the largest print possible. This is easy for us to do, but keep in mind the print area must be smooth and free of any seams, neck lines or bottom hems. Printing over any unsmooth surfaces will lead to inconsistent prints. Keep this in mind when printing on tank tops, V-necks or scoop necks, since these shirts tend to have things in the print area that would inhibit a perfect print. Also, jumbo prints require larger than normal pallets to put the shirts on. When using these pallets, printing on Ladies / Youth tees will usually require us to stretch these shirts in order to fit over the pallet, distorting the image. Keep this in mind when preparing your art and size breakdowns.

Printing Fine Detail

Modern day screen printing has given us the ability to print very fine detail on a variety of mediums. Although we specialize in using a variety of screen mesh to achieve the fine detail that is required for each job, there are still certain mediums that prohibit us from being able to replicate this fine detail. These items are usually things that have rough surfaces (canvas tote bags and certain aprons) and any garments made with ribbed, burnout or pique material. (Just remember, the rougher the material, the more difficult fine detail is to achieve). Also, all metallic inks require lower mesh counts to print the thick metallic pieces thru the screen, making it impossible for fine detail to be achieved. As always, we will always be forthcoming if we feel this will be a problem before going to press with your job.

Ribbed Garments

Although ribbed garments (like boy beaters) are great form fitting garments to wear, they are very difficult to print. Imagine, the ribbed material essentially has 2 layers of ribs (one on top, and the other on bottom when the garment is stretched out). If we print the ribbed material without stretching the garment out, the ink sits on top of the ribs, allowing it to crack when stretched. If we print it with the garment stretched out, the ink will go on both layers of ribs, then when shrunk back down, only half the image will be visible (since the other half is on the bottom part of the ribs). Bottom line, printing on ribbed garments is difficult, inconsistent and highly not recommended.

Poly Blend Garments

The polyester / cotton blend T-shirts have become very popular items, given that they are lighter weight, breathe a little better than cotton shirts, and have a very unique vintage heather look to them. Because these garments are made with a completely different material than standard 100% cotton tees, they require slightly different printing methods to achieve a perfect print. Polyester material is much more susceptible to heat, and burns much easier than cotton garments. Because of this, these shirts should not be underbased when using plastisol ink. When printing with tri-blend garments, we recommend either all waterbased inks or a single print softened plastisol. Both of these options will bring a slightly lighter looking print, but most people get these shirts for a more faded worn vintage look anyways, and we feel that not having a heavy print is what this style of shirt is intended for.
