Help Center: Custom T-Shirt Printing & Techniques

Broken Arrow offers many types of garment decorations, and printing techniques. We have everything you need from standard to specialty printing, and even all over prints. Here are some frequently asked questions about printing techniques and general information that you may find helpful. Of course, if you have any additional questions our friendly customer service reps are available to answer any questions you might have!

What is a specialty ink?

A specialty ink is something out of the ordinary. We have really cool things such as glitter, foil, high density and neons just to name a few. Check out some more info on our Specialty Inks Page.

Can you match PMS colors for screen printing?

PMS colors are designed for paper ink to be placed on white stock. You may indicate what PMS color you would like and make one of two choices:

  • Choose a stock t-shirt ink color that is close to the PMS color.
  • Pay extra for a PMS color match, but understand it cannot be guaranteed to be exact on a textile, especially if it is not screen printed on white

What happens if the color of ink isn't exactly what I viewed online?

Ink colors may vary depending on your computer monitor. The colors will be close, possibly varying by a shade or tint of a color. If you are interested in having a printed color chart sent to you please email us.

How do I know the correct print dimensions?

Broken Arrows largest print dimension is 14.5" tall OR wide, however the standard t-shirt print is 12.5". Print dimensions are really dependent on the location and detail of the design. Broken Arrow's art department can help you size your design for the look you are trying to achieve.
