Q: Does all the money raised stay here in SC, supporting our SC Small Businesses?

A: Yes, as much as possible! Our #1 goal is to help as many SC Small Businesses as possible, from the Upstate to the Low Country: bars, restaurants, bands, artists, charities, boutiques, ...

We also know that some of our small businesses also support charities and causes that not only help those in need within the Palmetto State's, but also on a regional and national scale.

Another goal is to work with SC based printers and fulfillment centers wherever and whenever possible. We can't do it for every single product, but where can, we will, and we do.

Are you a printer in SC? If you'd like to discuss a contract/wholesale/fulfillment partnership, we'd love to talk with you! Call us at 9119 - 349 - 2650, email us at HereToStaySC@gmail.com or drop us a note below.  

Q: How much money goes back to each SC Small Business?

A: That varies somewhat, based on the item. We have a fixed printing/embellishment cost, with all proceeds above being paid forward. 

Q: When are funds - the money earned/raised - paid out?

A: Currently, we process all Sales Reports by the 5th of each month, and disperse/pay out money earned/raised by the 15th (for the prior months sales).

We can work with you if you need to make other arrangements, just let us know.

Q: How is the money paid out? 

A: We prefer to use EFT's (Electronic Fund Transfers), such as direct bank-to bank transfers (Zelle, for instance), PayPal or Venmo. Just let us know how you'd like to receive your funds. 

We can also issue a Certified/Cashier's Check and mail it directly. While the reporting time is the same, your check may not arrive until after the 15th of the month since the check will be mailed via the USPS. Please note: there is an additional processing charge, which is subtracted from the amount earned.

Q: How long does it take to get to get my order?

A: Orders are processed daily, and enter production the following business day. Normal production time is 5 - 7 business days, and first class shipping time is added to that. Overall, you should see your order within 10 - 15 days after you receive your order confirmation.

Please note: With the current Covid-19 situation, we sometimes run a few days longer due to supply chain issues and product availability from our suppliers.

Regardless, you'll be notified by email with an order confirmation, as well as when your order is processed and ships. Tracking numbers will be provided by email as too. 

Q: Why are there different price points for tees?

A: We offer apparel in sizes from small up through 4 XL options (and larger on request) depending on the brand. Sizes XXL and up have a size up-charge: more material = slightly higher price. 

And obviously, item prices will vary based on style (long sleeve, tank) and sometimes material.

Q: How are the items printed, traditional screen printing?

A: With all of the new materials, coupled with the advances in printing technology, we use the best process for the garment or item being decorated.

We utulize DTG (Direct-To-Garment), DTF (Direct-To-Film), along with both traditional direct and indirect screen printing, a wide variety of vinyl along with dye sublimation and embroidery (15 needles/colors).

Our goal is to provide the best decorated items with the most vibrant colors that last long time.

Q: How do I care for - wash and dry - my DTG printed items.

You can see our complete washing instructions here, but in a nutshell, it's pretty easy:

  • Wash inside out in cold water
  • No chlorine bleach
  • Tumble dry, inside out, on low heat (hang drying is the best option)
  • If you must iron, iron with a cool iron, inside out.

Q: If I have an issue with my order, am I able to return or exchange my purchase?

A: Depending on the reason, absolutely! Just drop us a note via email (HereToStaySC@gmail.com), and for complete details on returns and refunds, please see our Return Policy.
