At Dog Pound Apparel, we specialize in creating custom apparel for the Bruhz, by the Bruhz! Our manufacturing process includes using Heat Transfer Vinyl (HTV) material to make most of your custom gear. The vinyl is cut on a large 24" stand alone vinyl cutting machine and then heat applied at temperatures above 300 degrees. This process binds the vinyl directly to the garment allowing us to create a variety of custom apparel including: t-shirts, tank-tops, performance wear, active wear, jackets, hoodies, sweatshirts, hats, bags, and more. 


Heat transfer vinyl stands out from other materials and shirt making processes because of its versatility. This allows us to customize and place various text and images in multiple locations including the front, back, sleeves, hood, and pocket areas of your garment. Unlike other materials, heat transfer vinyl is durable and made to last at least 40-50 washes. HTV is often used when making sportswear including football, basketball, and soccer jerseys. Our HTV is made for enduring the day to day impact of contact sports. Thus, the vinyl will not crack or fade like other ink based products.


Because the vinyl is custom cut, we are able to make singular items as opposed to having high minimum quantity orders, often the requirement of silk screen/screen printing services. 

Frequent Q & As:

Q: Do customers need to provide their own artwork?

A: For customers looking to get custom orders made, finalized artwork is preferred. If you need us to make your final logo/artwork, there will be a $50 artwork fee. This fee may be waved on large enough group orders. We accept artwork in .png file format. Files in PDF, JPEG, HEIC formats, etc need reformatting/converting.


Q: Are there minimum quantities on heat transfer orders?

A: Luckily, due to the nature of the heat transfer process, we typically do not require minimum quantities for items that are already listed on the site. Therefore allowing customers to order one singular shirt. 

For custom orders however, including chapter logos, group names, etc, the minimum is 5-10pcs with price breaks at increased quantities.


Q: What is your turnaround time? 

A: Our turnaround time is usually 10-12 business days plus your shipping selection. However, we are flexible for rush orders or orders needing to make specific deadlines including probates, events, chapter anniversary's, Founders Day, etc. Please let us know prior to making your order if you have a special request so we can plan accordingly. 


Q: Can these shirts be ironed?

A: Yes, all of our HTV products can be ironed. It is recommended to iron the garments inside out rather than directly on the vinyl.
