Typically our lead time is 1 to 3 business days from the day you order to the day we ship your order, but lead time can be extended during busy season.

8. What transit time?

Transit time will be estimated at the time your order is shipped by the carrier. But many variables can affect transit time and cause delays such as weekends, inclement weather, carrier processing speed, whether or not the order was shipped before cutoff time (typically 3:00pm central U.S. time), or any other unforeseen circumstance out of our control.

9. Do you offer Next Day or 2 Day shipping?

No. We do not have the ability to keep every SKU in stock, therefore your order is on a print-on-demand basis, so lead time will typically be 1-3 days from the day your order is placed.  We can ship next day or 2 day once your items is ready to ship (after the lead time). If you desire this, please contact us and we will invoice you for the additional (rush) shipping fee. 

10. Can I pick up in person?

We are no longer offering in-person pick up as an option on our website. ALL orders placed on our website/App will be shipped!

11. Why am I being charged tax?

Ask Apparel is based in Arkansas. Per Nexus laws, we have to charge all Arkansas residents sales tax. Since we do not meet Nexus thresholds in any other state, residents of those states will not be charged tax on our website at this time. 

If you order from our store through platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok Seller Center you will be charged tax no matter what state you live in per "Marketplace Facilitator" Laws that TikTok and Facebook/Instagram (Meta) must abide by. They legally have to charge you sales tax, not Ask Apparel. Another marketplace facilitator that must charge you tax that ask apparel use is Etsy. Marketplace facilitators we do not currently use, but may use in the future are Amazon and Ebay.

12. Will your shirts shrink?

Yes they can. Most of our garments contain cotton. Cotton is an organic material that is prone to shrinkage (particularly if washed in hot water and/or heat dried). You can minimize shrinkage and protect the graphic by washing inside out in cold water and hanging to dry. We don’t actually manufacture the garments, we just print on them. Any excessive shrinkage issues is out of our control and not guaranteed by us.

Yes! Currently we sell hats and accessories as well.  Every now and then we may run a special product for a limited time, so be sure you subscribe to our newsletter so you don’t miss out!

17. How do the shirts fit?

Most of our shirts are unisex sizing and fit true to size, but can vary slightly depending on brand. Please see or request the size chart if you want exact specifications.

18. Some of your items say “DTF Printed”. What is that?

“DTF” stands for "Direct To Film". It’s basically the same a screen printing except a special printer prints a water base ink onto a special film. The image printed onto the film is then heat pressed onto the garment. This makes it possible to do multicolored prints (even portraits) onto any garment of any color at a reasonable price! THIS IS NOT THE SAME AS VINYL OR SUBLIMATION!!!

We work with  dye sublimation, embroidery, direct to film (DTF), and screen printing. We try to use only the highest quality shirts.
