Color Confusion

We recently printed some t-shirts that looked phenomenal; however, there was a bit of color confusion when the customers picked up the shirts. The shirt order was a upper level pink shirt with pink and black writing on the front and back. Easy enough on our part; we sent the mock-up and the customer approved. However, when the customer came to pick up the shirts, the pink ink that was used on the shirt was not the pink that he had envisioned in his mind. How do we rectify this color confusion and alleviate the problem with color matching? Here are a few ways that we can help you out with color matching:

We suggests that our customers come in and look through our standard color guide that we use. This is a sheet that allows you to see, first hand, what the ink color will look like. For example, you might think you want magenta on a pink shirt; however, upon reviewing our standard color guide you may notice that magenta is actually too red and not enough pink. Then what should you do? We suggest that our clients pick another ink color that we have. We can also mix colors together to create the perfect shade that you need.

Another option that we suggest for our customers is providing us with a pantone color number. We also recommend that customers use our pantone matching color system (PMS) and then give us the number so that the ink is perfect and meets your expectations. We want our customers to be 100% satisfied so it is important that keep an honest dialog with our clients and our clients tell us exactly what they have in mind. We ask our customers to communicate every need and detail that they might have!

Our desire is to alleviate any color confusion that might incur during the printing process, because we want to make sure that the customer is ultimately satisfied with the ink color. If you have any questions regarding ink color or our pantone matching color system (PMS), please do not hesitate to contact us at 615.943.1402 or email us at

Design Your Custom T-Shirt Now!

TakeHold Printing wants to help you design your custom t-shirt now! We are a local screen printer located right outside of Nashville who specializes in custom t-shirt designs and design ideas. We recently just launched our design lab and want you to know some key features that will help with your future purchase.

One new feature the design lab offers is the ability to upload artwork directly to the shirt. From here you can pick color options, such as taking out or adding color, zooming to view direct placement of image, and front and back images of shirt. This will help minimize error and allow you to see the image before it is printed.

The second feature that we want you to know about is the creative aspect of our lab. Are you fresh out of ideas and need that spark? We have built in ideas to help you narrow down what you want to print on the shirts. Maybe you need something campus or college related but don’t have time to sit down and create an image. Perfect! Let our designs lab do all the work for you by implementing our generated clip art onto the shirt. It is easy, efficient, and stress free!

Lastly, the third feature that we want you to be aware of is actually not a feature at all but we are available for artwork help when you need us. We try to work alongside our customers telling them exactly what they need for artwork and helping them with any technical that may arise. For printing purposes we ask that we receive an .ai file or at least 300-350 dpi high resolution image. This will ensure that the when the artwork is printed there is minimal issues with the image becoming distorted or pixelated.

We hope that you will take advantage of our new design studio. We also hope that by adding this element to our website that it will help our customers with their custom t-shirts and printing needs. If you need more information regarding artwork or need pricing information, please do not hesitate to contact us at 615.943.1402 or email us directly at
