hilites are also considered colours and are almost always necessary on
dark coloured t-shirts.

If you want to see a test print prior to the run starting, we can either arrange a digital image to be emailed/messaged to you, or you can come to the factory to view a sample. Please note, the test print does not allow for alterations to be made to the print. We send a digital e-proof where we expect you will make any changes you think are necessary.

artwork specifically.

Minimum runs assist in allowing us to cover set up times but also assist you in covering your set up costs.
