Discreetly Greek :: FAQ
What type of shirt blanks do you print on?
All of our Discreetly Greek standard shirts are printed on combed ring spun cotton (nerd talk, it means REALLY SOFT!) t-shirts or apparel. The new lines have recently been printed on apparel that is sourced of a variety other brands. Currently the brands we use are: Tultex, Alstyle, Anvil, Bella.
How do I know what size shirt to order?
Each product page has information in regards to what blank we used. We always suggest going a size up if the shirt description lis it as fashion fitted or "girly fit". The easiest way to ensure fit, is to measure one of your favorite tees to know which size you should select.
I ordered two shirts of the same size, why is one of the tees smaller?
Some of the designs are printed on different style shirts. Check the product description for any special sizing notes.
How should I care for my shirts? Will they shrink?
The best way to care for your shirts is to turn them inside out and machine or hand wash them on cold. Since all of the shirts have some percentage of cotton, they will tend to shrink a little after being washed and dried. For the least shrinkage, dry on low or hang dry.
What type of printing process is used on your apparel?
All of our shirts are screenprinted. Most of the shirts are printed with water-based or discharge ink which leaves the ink almost invisible to the hand. A few of the shirts use soft hand plastisol in order to get a bright white print. Check the product pages for the specific type of printing for each individual product.
Will the printing fade?
Because we choose to use soft water-based inks, some of the prints will fade some after being washed. Black prints tend to fade the most, but will still hold up for lots of wear and washes.
Do you print your own shirts?
Not as of yet, we like to focus on the design and marketing process, and leave the printing to the professionals! We are looking into making Discreetly Greek a DIY company, and handle the priting, but as of now ALL prints are out sourced!
