Lightning Bolt Ink offers quality embroidery, silk screening, sticker printing, and graphic design services.
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions that can help many of the queries you might have:
- What is your turnaround time?
Our average turnaround time is two weeks from the day the order is placed (once artwork, sizes, and deposit are all finalized ).
- What is your minimum order?
We don’t technically have a minimum order, however there are a few magic numbers when we begin to offer quantity discounts for larger runs. For a basic one or two color print the “minimum” is 12 pieces. For an order that has multiple colors and/or multiple locations on the shirt, the “minimum” is 36 pieces. We do offer smaller runs and even one-offs, but these can be pricey.
- Can I mix and match different styles and garment colors within my order?
Without a doubt! Garment styles & colors can be mixed as long as the design being printed and the ink colors are the same for all the garments within your order. Multiple changes of ink color in an order may result in a color way fee. Also, if the design is intended for light color apparel, but you’d like to add dark color t-shirts, there may be a $25 charge for editing the artwork. If the design needs to be altered to accommodate the smaller size of ladies tees, onesies, dog shirts, etc., additional screen charges will be applied to the order.
- Can we see some samples of your work?
- Will I see a sample before you run my order?
Before running an order, an electronic proof will be sent to you for your final approval. This proof will show you ink colors, image sizes, and general placement. We will not begin production on your order until we have final approval from you, so please check all details in the proof carefully.
- Can you ship my order?
Yes, we ship to anywhere in the United States! Please take note that rates depend on the location of the shipment.
