This includes checking for any spelling, grammar, or design errors in the design. If an error is found after your order has been approved, DIY APPARELS will not be held liable for the cost associated with reprinting the order.

Restricted Print Area

For printing on certain area (E.g Seams and Zippers), our team will advice you not to print on or near them. If you insist on printing on those areas, DIY APPARELS will not be liable for any reprints.

The best way to gauge your print size is to lay a shirt (in the sizes you wish to have printed) flat and use a ruler to measure out the print area. Please keep in mind the scale of the print will vary on different sized garments and all items of an order will be printed with the same set of screens, unless a re-size is ordered.Do note that due to bulk production, exact distance given may not be 100% accurate. DIY APPARELS should not be held liable for in such events.
