How are the garments printed?
All of our garments are screen printed using plastisol inks.
We make every effort to ensure the print is of the highest quality and durability. To prolong the life of our garments follow the washing instructions. The washing instructions can be found on each of our garments or on the sizing guide page.
If an item is out of stock, how long will it be until there are more available?
We print our garments in batches according to demand. We try to make sure that we don’t run our stock too low. On the rare occasions that we do sell out of a particular design or size we will try to make sure that they are replaced within the week.
If an item is out of stock for a prolonged period of time, this could be down to supply problems that are out of our control. If you would like to check on the future availability of a particular item, feel free to email us so we can give you a timeframe in which we hope to be able make the product available.
Who designs your tees?
All of our designs are designed and printed in-house, which means you can only buy the Piston Apparel range directly from us, or our autorised stockists.
