***If you are purchasing more than one item, they may be shipping separately! You will receive multiple tracking numbers if this is the case.*

Please note:

  • Fulfillment time doesn't include shipping. To get an idea of how long an order will take to reach its destination, combine the estimated fulfillment time with the estimated shipping time.
  • Our fulfillment averages don't account for the time an order might be put on hold.

What is DTG?

Direct-to-garment, or DTG, is a printing method that sprays the ink onto the garment. The ink then soaks into the fibers of the garment. It’s like printing on paper, but on clothing.

DTG printers offer a lot of color options which means you can print detailed designs and photorealistic images with almost no color limitations. This is important for those businesses like us that want to try out various colors and designs.

Examples of products that are commonly printed using DTG:

  • T-Shirts
  • Hoodies
  • Stickers

What is Embroidery?

We use machine embroidery, which is an embroidery process whereby a sewing machine or embroidery machine is used to create patterns on textiles. It is used commercially in product branding, corporate advertising, uniforma adornment, and in the fashion industry to decorate garments and apparel.

Examples of products that are commonly embroidered:

  • Backpacks
  • Hats
  • Jackets

Our embroidered items have an average production time of about 3-8 business days

What is Sublimation?

In simple terms, it's a method of printing that transfers a design into a material or fabric using ink and heat.

Our average production time for sublimated items is about 7-14 business days.

Check out this video for a quick look: - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IafpXrr1BBI

Examples of products that are sublimated

  • Jerseys
  • Pro Hoodies
  • Flags
  • Mousepads
  • Masks

So how does sublimation work? First, a design is printed onto special paper. The inks that are used turn into gas when brought under heat, then combine with the fabric and permanently print onto the fabric. The effects are permanent and less prone to fading, as the ink is embedded in the fabric or substrate rather than simply laying on top like a normal print.

The process is almost like a tattoo, but instead of for your skin, it’s for your chosen product. The heat opens up the pores of the fabric, then with the applied pressure the ink cools and returns to a solid form.

The result is a permanent, full color image that won’t crack, peel or wash away from the substrate. The process allows the ink to go from a solid to a gas without turning to liquid, a bit like dry ice. The conversion is initiated by heat and controlled by pressure.

This quick and effective digital print method is growing in popularity for smaller batch orders and those designs that rely on the details. Sublimation printing is also known as ‘all over printing’ as it allows you to choose a design that can literally go from seam to seam.

General

Printed apparel (direct-to-garment)

We use the latest direct-to-garment (DTG) printing technology to offer a wide variety of printable garments and design color options. We use high-quality inks that won't fade for a long time if taken care of properly.

Printed apparel can be machine-washed cold, inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and like colors. Use non-chlorine bleach only when necessary. You shouldn't use any fabric softeners or dry-clean the items.

DTG-printed apparel can be tumble-dried on a low cycle, but hang-dry works best. When it comes to ironing, use cool iron inside-out. Don't iron the print.

Follow these instructions carefully to avoid fading and cracking of the print, and shrinking the garment that can occur if you wash or dry it on a high setting.

Embroidered apparel

Embroidered apparel can be machine-washed cold, inside-out on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent and like colors. You can use a small amount of chlorine bleach, but non-chlorine is the safer option.

If you notice any color residue in water, rinse the garment in lukewarm water and then in cold several times, but try not to rub any stained embroidery. Embroidered clothing can also be dry-cleaned.

After washing, don't leave the clothing to soak or lie in a pile while wet. Don't wring out the embroidered items, but if you want to tumble-dry them, use a cool air setting.

If the garment needs ironing, do it inside-out, preferably between two pieces of cloth. You shouldn't wet embroidery before ironing or use a steam iron.

Embroidered hats and backpacks

Embroidered hats and backpacks can be wiped clean with a damp cloth in the spots where it's needed. If necessary, hats can be hand-washed cold. Don't use brushes.

Both hats and backpacks shoudn't be machine-washed, bleached, tumble-dried, ironed, or dry-cleaned. Read the manufacturer label carefully for any other instructions.

Sublimation

  • Cleaning: Machine-washed cold with like colors, without bleach. Flip inside out for more protection for the garment.
  • Drying: You can tumble-dry the apparel on low heat. Don't iron and don't dry clean.

Mask FAQs

Congratulations on ordering your NEU Gaming face mask powered by BioSmart antimicrobial technology!

Below are instructions on how to properly use and care for your new mask.

BioSmart™ is a patented Milliken technology that binds chlorine bleach from the wash cycle to the surface of the fabric. Products with BioSmart technology must be washed with an EPA-registered chlorine bleach* to charge the fabric prior to each use. BioSmart technology is durable up to 75 launderings.

For home laundering, the initial charge procedure and the recharge (maintenance) procedure for BioSmart™ are the same, except that detergent is not required in the initial charge wash. In each case, EPA-registered chlorine bleach must be used.

  • All EPA-registered bleach products have instructions for laundry sanitization on the label. Most of them indicate that the proper concentration is 1/2 cup per standard home washing machine load. Some of the bleach products may vary in concentration and recommend a different level, so please check the label of the bleach that you are using. Do not use color-safe bleach.
  • Use a regular laundry cycle and be sure to include the rinse step. Failure to rinse the fabric can result in local concentrations of chlorine bleach that may cause irritation to sensitive individuals. After the rinse, you may not be able to smell a bleach odor, but the chlorine bleach is still bound to the fabric.
  • Detergent is not required for the initial charge but should be used for all maintenance washes along with the EPA-registered chlorine bleach.
  • The fabric can be dried in any manner (tumble drier, line dry, etc.) without affecting the performance. • BioSmart is engineered to recharge when laundered with an EPA-registered chlorine bleach.* The technology is durable up to 75 launderings.
