Q: What is Digital Printing?
A:Digital printing is the process of using specially engineered toners to print full color images on almost any fabric. Digital printing provides excellent image durability and wash fastness, and provide a soft, breathable image feel. These images are NOT iron-on transfers that would leave transfer film around your image. This process is perfect for orders that require vibrant full color or photographic images.

Q: Does Contract Shirt Factory print more than just T-shirts?
A: Contract T-Shirt Factory can print on any type of apparel you want. Just send us an email if you don’t see the item you’re interested in listed on the site.
Q: How big should my image file be?
A: The larger the file the better. Enlarging an image can degrade the image quality. We review all images before we print an order to ensure the highest quality results.
Example: Little images from a Web site will not reproduce well. However, the original full size image that the smaller Web site image was created from would probably reproduce quite well.

A: We guarantee it. Obviously, our ability to reproduce a high quality image depends on the quality of the source image you provide when you order. We review all images submitted before printing and will notify you if image reproduction is questionable.
