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.
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.

The screenprinting 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.

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.
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!
