Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a minimum quantity required for custom apparel?

You can take advantage of custom t-shirts with no minimum order requirement using our digital printing method. Order a single custom printed t-shirt for yourself or everyone you know!

How long will my order take to arrive?

The average custom embroidered order ships in no more than 5 business days after the order is placed. Digitally printed orders take even less time - shipping within 1-3 business days after the order is placed. Longer times for bulk orders

Transit times vary between 1-5 days depending on where you live, don’t hesitate to contact us if you need your order by a specific date. We can almost always accommodate your deadline.

What happens after I place my order?

Every order begins with a thorough review by our customer service team to make sure that each detail of your order is inspected.

It’s then passed off to our art team where we inspect your designs and make automatic fixes like alignment, spelling mistakes, and even smooth out rough and pixelated uploaded images before setting up your design for the appropriate print method.

Once we’ve prepared your order to print, it then makes multiple stops through our production process where each t-shirt is inspected for accuracy and quality before landing at our final inspection prior to shipment.

Once shipped, you can monitor your package with the tracking number provided either in the shipping email you receive.

Every order comes with a guaranteed delivery time and quality assurance. If you have any questions, be sure to Contact Us for more info.

Can I make changes after my order has been placed?

At Color Explosion Designs, we process orders super fast -- which means, unfortunately, that we can't guarantee that changes can be made after you've submitted your order. To avoid issues, we recommend double-checking your order before you place it. Of course, if you do happen to make an error on your order, feel free to contact us and we'll see what we can do.

What affects my price?

The first component when calculating the price of your custom t-shirts is the product. Our catalog spans budget-friendly options like the Ultra Cotton Tee, to trendy, super soft t-shirts like the Triblend Crew.

Next is the print method. For digitally printed orders, pricing is determined by the number of print locations (front, back, both).

Last is quantity. Ordering more of the same design lets you take advantage of price breaks and pay less per shirt.

Can you help me with my design?
