Our Quality Control

Continual Process Improvement

People and processes working together.

Literal definition of quality
Our #1 goal is to make you a happy customer!
Getting your order delivered on time accurately is the best way we can earn your loyalty.
There are many touchpoints when creating custom merchandise, opening the door to errors. We double-check and triple-check ourselves and each other to reduce the possibility of something going wrong. We continually fine-tune our internal processes and work collaboratively for the singular purpose of becoming your go-to company for custom-printed and embroidered apparel and accessories.
CSR reviews design


Each order is carefully reviewed by our customer service team. Before moving forward, we double-check pricing, inventory availability, trademark issues, and review any special requests made during checkout.  If we have questions or concerns, we'll contact you via email and/or phone calls to resolve any issues.

Expert production artist examines file
New orders are assigned to our expert production artists, who use their special skill sets to create the unique production files necessary for embellishment. Each embellishment method requires a specialized output of the artwork files.  Our proof process is extremely important and your help is needed to ensure we're all on the same page.  If you see anything highlighted in yellow, please pay special attention.  Remember: We won't begin production until your proof is approved.  We'll remind you with phone calls and emails to keep your order on schedule.
Production counting t-shirts

With an endless selection of styles, colors, and sizes, making sure your order has the correct quantity and sizes requires a triple check before embellishment. We get an early start each day sorting and organizing orders. Each order is counted twice before being released to "ready to go" status.


Film positive reviewed as part of screen printing process
Screen Management and Imaging is the foundation for quality printing. Careful review of film positives before screens are burned is another opportunity to check our work.
Master embroiderer doing master embroidery stuff
Before embroidering your logo, we double-check that thread colors in your design are programmed and properly coordinated to each element.
Registration and centering done prior to screen printing

Making sure the print is centered and colors are accurately registered requires attention to detail and adherence to standards in equipment operation. 


Custom beanies being inspected after embroidery
Once the garment is embroidered, it's off to finishing.  This is another checkpoint for quality and inventory count, as well as where trimming, folding, and steaming take place.
Folding shirts after they come off the conveyor 
After the garment is printed, another quality check takes place where we double-check the image color, print location, and quality.  Our third inventory count is made here.
Orders being readied for shipping
With everything boxed and ready to go, we perform a final check to make sure the weights are adding up correctly and double-check whether the addresses need special attention.

Last but not least. Delivery On Time.

    Midweight Hooded Pullover Sweatshirt
    These were very nice hooded sweatshirts. As always Bolt did a great job on the shop emblem. Ordered in several sizes as some were for gifts. Order was done and sent in a few days. Love their service and will continue to order from them.

    Knit-Cuff Beanie
    I started working with Lana over at Bolt last year to help with T shirts for my event. This year we decided to do beanies and once again, I am so impressed with the way bolt handles everything. I love working with Lana... she makes the whole process super easy. She answers all questions and makes great suggestions... I just feel like she really wants the best for us. What a rock star1 We love Lana and we love Bolt!!!

    Most Affordable Custom T Shirt
    When our PTO parent found Bolt Printing to do a t-shirt printing job, I was skeptical that my expectations of quality and timeline would be met for the cost...and the whole process was so easy and seamless I was waiting for the snag...then when we had a small need for a fix I thought here is where they will be difficult...NOPE! Every step of our experience with Bolt was fantastic! Will order from them again and again!

    Snapback Trucker Cap - White Mesh
    I was looking at multiple places to custom embroider Richardson 112 hats and cane across Bolt Printing. I kept passing them because I thought their prices and delivery times were too good to be true. That was not the case. What you see and what they offer is exactly what you get. I couldn't be more happy with the design and placement. It is crazy to believe they did it all with a picture and me picking a couple colors.
