Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT IS SILK SCREENING OR SCREEN PRINTING?
This refers to the process of "burning" a screen with a desired layout, adding plastisol ink and pushing it through the screen onto a t-shirt, etc. and finally sending it through a dryer to "cure".

WHAT ABOUT SHIPPING?
We ship to anywhere in the US and many countries Internationally. Shipping takes 8-15 days for all orders in the US and an additional 7-10 days to International destinations.

HOW LONG DOES SOMETHING TAKE TO GET DONE?
Turnaround time varies with the nature of the order and the time of year. In most cases, almost any job from 72 pieces on up can be completed from five to 12 working days.

WHO HAS COPYRIGHTS TO THE ARTWORK?
SS Shirts retains copyright to all artworks produced in house unless a written release is provided by SS Shirts. All artworks provided by clients are copyright their respective owners.

ARTWORK?!
You can provide your own artwork, logo, photo, layout, drawing, etc., or let our graphic arts department do some, or all the work.

IS THERE A CHARGE?
Yes @ $75.00 per hour.

DO YOU "KEEP" THE SCREENS OR ARTWORK ON FILE?
Yes on the artwork, generally not on the screens.
We keep a hard copy and a computer back up of all artwork. Re-orders next week or next year are no problem. New screens will be "burned" when your re-order is placed - usually at no charge.

WHO OWNS THE SCREENS?
SS Shirts owns the screens. When screens are "burned" the customer is paying a screen usage charge. The customer is not paying to purchase the screens, but instead, a rental and labor charge for the preparation and usage of the screens.
