What is a specialty ink?
A specialty ink is something out of the ordinary. We have really cool and unique things such as glitter, foil, high density and neons just to name a few. Check out some more info on our Specialty Inks Page.

Can you match PMS colors for screen printing?
PMS colors are designed for paper ink to be placed on white stock. You may indicate what PMS color you would like and make one of two choices:

  • Choose a stock t-shirt ink color that is close to the PMS color.

  • Pay extra for a PMS color match, but understand it cannot be guaranteed to be exact on a textile, especially if it is not screen printed on white.

What happens if the color of ink isn't exactly what I viewed online?
Ink colors may vary depending on your computer monitor. The colors will be close, possibly varying by a shade or tint of a color. If you are interested in having a printed color chart sent to you please email us a fee may be involved.

How do I know the correct print dimensions?
Promo Planets largest print dimension is 14.5" tall OR wide, however the standard t-shirt print is 12.5". Print dimensions are really dependent on the location and detail of the design. Promo Planet's art department can help you size your design for the look you are trying to achieve.

Are the prices on the quote system accurate?
Yes prices are 100% accurate according to your specifications!! If you enter in the correct information, you will get the correct price for your project! Although we try our hardest to give you accurate quotes online for embroidery, its not as easy as screenprinting, DTG Direct-To-Garment or DTF Direct-To-Film or Transfers. Embroidery prices are based on the number of stitches in your design, so the prices online are just an estimate based on our standard stitch counts.

UPS/FedEx says it's a [X] day ship to my location, can you guarantee it will get to me by then?
We wish we had control over UPS/Fedex, but unfortunately, we don't. Although we cannot guarantee UPS or Fedex's shipping times, we can guarantee that we will give it to UPS/Fedex in the time agreed upon between you and our sales reps. Occasionally, UPS/Fedex does have delays in their services based on weather or unforeseen issues, so its best to allot yourself a couple of extra days before your deadline.


Is my order insured when it ships?

Yes. All orders shipping with Fed Ex or UPS are insured for $100.00 per package/box/pallet. Additional coverage up to the full value of the order can be obtained by giving written notice to Promo Planet at time of order placement.


Who is responsible if my order arrives late or is lost?

We take great pride in making sure all logistical timelines are met with absolute accuracy, however, there are rare occasions where Carriers may fail. Once an order ships from our facility or our partner facilities it is the responsibility of the carrier to fulfill their obligation for delivery. Promo Planet has no control over shipment carriers. This is where insurance for the order can be used to protect your investment against these possible issues. Shipper policies are subject to change so you should consult and verify their current terms and conditions on their webpage. When an order ships with ample time for delivery according to the carriers terms and is delayed, does not arrive on time, or misses an event date, Promo Planet and it’s partners will be held harmless and are not responsible for financial loss for any reason including but not limited to package damages, partial or full package losses, negligence, routing errors, supply chain issues arising from accidents, strikes, labor shortages, etc.. Carriers typically will not cover losses due to Force Majeure, or other acts of God, nor will Promo Planet or our partners be financially obligated in any manner to replace or reimburse any portion of the invoice or replace the goods and services. Our portion for service completion has been fully rendered prior to time of shipment. Promo Planet will assist you in any way we can by filing a claim when our shipper number is used for the delivery. We will always take your side and do our best to support you and your claim, but it is ultimately up to the carrier to take or deny responsibility and Promo Planet should not be held responsible for their decision nor should we be reviewed, rated, or denied payment for conditions beyond our control. These are the part of the terms for doing business with Promo Planet. Should these terms be violated or breeched in any manner, you will be fully and financially responsible for the order, and any estimated damages to Promo Planet including up to $10,000 per incident or claim,  full compensation of all attorney fees, and loss of business fees at a rate of $500.00 per hour should the matter have to be litigated or disputed through arbitration.  

Do I have to get all the same size?
Of course not! You can order multiple sizes! They can even all be on the same order, which gets you a better price, as long as we can print the same size design on all of them.

Do I have to get all the same color garment?
Nope! You can get multiple colors within the same order as long as the ink colors and design remain the same.

Are white garments cheaper than colors?
Yes, white garments are a little bit less expensive, but not by much! If you want a colored garment but are looking to reduce your cost, reduce the number of ink colors instead!
