HOW ARE YOUR T-SHIRTS PRINTED?
All SHADEOGREY t-shirts are printed using state-of-the-art screen-printing processes and other apparel embellishment techniques, including soft-hand inks, water-based inks, specialty inks, foils, and flocks.
HOW SHOULD I CARE FOR MY SHADEOGREY T-SHIRTS? WILL THEY SHRINK?
The best way to care for your t-shirts is to turn them inside out and machine or hand wash them with cold water. Generally, cotton shrinks when it is washed and/or dried. Since all t-shirts have some percentage of cotton, they will tend to shrink a little after being washed and dried. The greatest amount of shrinkage occurs when the t-shirt is washed in hot water and dried on the hottest dryer setting. For the least shrinkage, dry on low or hang dry.
THE INK ON MY SHIRT IS INCONSISTENT. IS THIS A DEFECT?
If the ink is inconsistently printed on the seams or collar of the t-shirt, this is due to the nature of the design and print technique. THIS IS NOT A DEFECT. However, please do not hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with pictures of your product’s areas in question for further assistance.
DO YOU OFFER WHOLESALE OR BULK PRICING?
Yes, but we screen the companies who are interested in carrying SHADEOGREY products. We want to make sure that SHADEOGREY is a good fit for the companies with which we work. If you would like more information, please contact us and include some background information about your shop/company. Retailers are required to have a physical, brick-and-mortar location to be considered for approval. Retailers that are exclusively internet-based will not be considered.
DO YOU PRINT YOUR OWN SHIRTS?
No, at the moment we focusing on design and leave the printing to the professionals.
WHAT TYPE OF PRINTING PROCESS IS USED ON YOUR APPAREL?
All our t-shirts and hoodies are screen printed. Most of the shirts are printed with water-based or discharge ink which leaves an extremely soft print. A few may use t-shirt vinyls and some plastisol to get desired bright white print. Check the product pages for the specific type of printing for each individual product.
WILL THE PRINTING FADE?
Because we use soft water-based ink on most designs, some of the prints will fade some after being washed. Black prints tend to fade the most, but will hold up for lots of wear and washes.

Paynow operates an escrow-type service called Buysafe to protect and reassure buyers. Buysafe protects the buyer by ensuring that the payers funds are only disbursed to the Merchant once the buyer is satisfied that the goods have been delivered or service has been rendered. The Merchant must make a delivery declaration to after which the buyer is afforded a 24-hour window to dispute delivery via a simple process on the Paynow website.
Where a dispute is registered by a buyer, the Merchant may elect to return the buyers funds by reversing the transaction or may challenge the buyer by providing acceptable Proof Of Delivery. If the Merchant and buyer are unable to resolve the matter directly, they may request mediation through Paynow. In complex cases, Paynow may refer the matter to an external body for independent arbitration.
Buysafe is enabled by default on all paynow sellers and may only be disabled by Verified Merchants. Verified Merchant status is reserved for sellers who have been through a stringent process to verify their identity
IS MY MONEY SAFE? WHAT HAPPENS IF I DO NOT GET MY GOODS?
Depending on the merchant Paynow uses a delivery escrow service. The escrow service holds your payment in a Paynow holding account until the merchant has confirmed the goods are delivered at which point you will be notified by email and SMS (if you are a registered user). You have 24 hours to dispute the transaction if the goods are not received in good order. If a transaction has been disputed Paynow will initiate third party mediation to resolve the dispute. Please note mediation may incur costs to the customer or merchant.
If the merchant does not make use of the escrow service, or you elect to bypass it and acknowledge delivery has already happened, or the 24 hour dispute window has expired, Paynow cannot mediate any disputes and you will need to resolve the issue directly with the merchant. Please check the transaction details at the confirm payment stage as to whether the merchant is using the escrow service or not.
The buyer gets the opportunity to rate and review the seller’s service for all transactions over $20. Check previous ratings and whether the seller has Buysafe enabled. SHADEOGREY is a Verified Paynow Merchant.
