TshirtSpot Customer...Keep in mind:

TshirtSpot.com will take challenging print jobs and will come close to the graphic files submitted. Printing on textiles will not be the same as paper copy printed at 600-1200 dpi; nor will the inks used be the same as laser or ink jet inks. Textiles will absorb inks more than paper and will tend to be darker looking. Washing shirts will lighten the image a little. The types of shirts used will also have an affect on the finished results.

If a "perfect duplication" as printed on paper is expected, the customer is responsible and required to submit a hard copy before the scheduled print time. This is a requirement for printing to take place. TshirtSpot.com reserves the right to refuse the print job if we feel that the expectations are unrealistic and/or that the customer may not understand the difference between printed paper and textile material. If no submitted hard copy is  provided, TshirtSpot.com can not be held responsible for the outcome of the print because we can only match the graphic file submitted to us; what we see may be different from what you see. Our computers are configured and calibrated for Rutland Process Inks. Standard Y X Y calibration for Photoshop

NOTE: Computers and graphic cards differ from computer to computer resulting in different appearances. What we see will be different from what you see.
