FAQs

Most of the questions that we often get asked should be answered here, but if you still have any questions feel free to get in touch!

What is your turnaround time?

Our average turnaround time is 10-12 working days from the date of confirmed payment, order and proof approval. We’ll give you an ETA when sending over confirmation of the order once everything’s approved.
In some cases orders may need extra production time depending on size or there being multiple types of print placement. We’ll always try and advise you of this when placing the order.

I can’t find a particular product on your website, can you source it?

The items we display online are just a taster of our varied stock. If you have a particular garment in mind just drop us an email and we’ll endeavour to source it for you!

Does Sea Dog provide garments?

Yes, we usually recommend printing on garments that we can source and supply for you.

Can I supply my own garments?

You usually can, however it’s important to communicate what the garments are and the material they’re made of when we initially quote as this can effect how we’ll need to handle the printing of them.

Can you draw me up a design?

At Sea Dog Print Studio, this is our bread and butter! Our in-house, qualified graphic design team are just itching to create your company’s stand-out, professional logo or even draw up an original illustration for a badass t-shirt. Don’t hesitate to send over your ideas and one of the team will keep you posted along the design process, making sure we create the finished product you’re looking for. Price will be discussed with you prior to starting the project and is dependent on the size/scale of the work.

Rush Orders?

A rush order service is available if our print schedule allows it. Depending on the work involved and the deadline this does sometime involve an extra charge. If you have a specific deadline please make sure to let us know when first placing the order.

How should I send you my artwork?

It is always best to send it in the program you created it in. Be that Adobe illustrator, Photoshop or even Coral Draw. This way, if you require any changes to be made, our designers can adapt the work before printing. If you don’t have access to the original file, or if you are still unsure, please send us what you have and our design team will be more than happy to assist.

Are you able to provide my company with samples before we order?

We most likely have something on our sample rail already. Why don’t you come and visit us at our studio and we can show you what we have to offer. If you are not free to pop in then please contact us for further details around what we can offer.

What is the sizing of your clothing and garments like?

Full size information is available for each garment or product via our online Catalogue.

Can you print me a one-off?

Due to the set up involved, our minimum order size is usually 10 items. We are more than happy to consider printing under this amount on a job-by-job basis, however after paying for the set up costs and scheduling it in around larger jobs this may not work out as cost or time effective for you. Drop us an email and our friendly team will be more than happy to assist you with your inquiry.

How are screen printing and embroidery costs determined?

For embroidery orders, we charge according to the “stitch count” or the number of stitches involved in printing the desired design or artwork.
With screen-printing, price is determined by the amount of screens that must be produced per colour in your design or artwork.
With Vinyl or Full colour Heat transfers we account for how long it takes to weed out your image and its size. Single colour vinyl pressing is charged by the colour.
The most important variable with all available techniques is the amount of items that you order. We have price breaks, so the more you order the cheaper for you.

How much do you charge for screen set up?

We charge a one-off fee of £20+VAT per screen/spot colour. 
The screen is stored in our system for 6 months after your latest print run. Once this time is up if you’ve not used it since we’ll get in contact to let you know we’re planning on recycling it to be used again.

Why are lighter inks on darker garments priced differently?

To make sure the colour of the ink is at its strongest it’s sometimes necessary to put down another layer of ink or an under-base of a lighter colour.

‘All over’ prints? (Sublimation)

We don’t offer an all over printing / sublimation service unfortunately. We currently only offer screen printing. Our maximum print size is 360mm x 470mm for single colour print. 350mm x 360mm for any more that one colour.

What is your minimum/maximum order?

We tend to have a minimum order of 10 items per design. As for our maximum… the sky is the limit! Please of course allow us a reasonable time to prep before ordering. Whether you’re ordering 10 shirts or 1000, you will not see a slip in our high standard of customer service and we’ll endeavor to meet any deadline.
