Simply select your mesh count and add the item to your cart. For multiple-color orders, please order one screen per color. Once the checkout process is completed, you will be prompted with a file uploader after payment. If you require specific placement name files accordingly to artwork placement position (i.e. left chest, chest center, back center, centered on the screen, etc.).
Screen orders ship within 3 business days of order. (This can be delayed if the artwork is not submitted correctly). - Expedited shipping will NOT speed up the process of screen production.
Orders for will-call pick up at San Diego may take up to 1 additional week to arrive. If you need the screens faster, please choose to have the order shipped directly to your address.
