Terms & Policies
Horry County Democratic Party has teamed up with GINGALLEY Web Design & Promotions to offer its Supporters quality merchandise with fast delivery right to your door. All of the apparel products herein are produced in the USA and are printed using the direct to garment printing process.
Direct to garment printing, also known as DTG printing, digital direct to garment printing, digital apparel printing, and inkjet to garment printing, is a process of printing on textiles and garments using specialized or modified inkjet technology.
Much like screen printing, which has been the staple of t-shirt printing for decades, direct to garment printing offers a clean and high-quality print. Although DTG is a fairly new printing process, the technology has advanced tremendously in the past few years alone, enabling us to stand behind these products with the utmost confidence in its sustainability in the merchandising market. When printed on quality garments with high-resolution graphics, the results are truly fantastic.
Turn Times and Shipping
It requires about 2-7 business days to complete the printing orders for apparel products such as t-shirts and bags. Non-apparel items such as mugs and posters take 2-5 business days to create. Shipping times are then added. Turn times and prices depend on the product type and the delivery destination.
97.66% of our orders are shipped within 5 business days. Over half of our orders are able to be shipped within 3 business days or less. We do not ship on weekends or on the following US holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving, and Christmas Day.
All delivery times are measured in business days. Standard delivery is not available on weekends. We work to ensure that your order is accurate and timely. We’ll follow up with an email after your package is shipped with tracking info as applicable.
Packages considered heavy or oversize by the applicable carrier, may require additional shipping charges. Orders shipping to P.O. Boxes may require additional shipping charges. FedEx does not ship to PO Boxes.

Shipments outside of the USA may incur customs fees, depending on destination country. The fee may vary depending on your order value, country limits, and other factors.
Although a delay is a rare occurrence, all orders are subject to a 24 hour period for billing verification. This hold can also protect you from credit card fraud and identity theft if someone was attempting to order on your account.
International orders may take a bit longer. Orders shipping to Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico can only be shipped via air services and shall arrive via USPS Standard Post.
Orders shipping to U.S. Military APO/FPO addresses, PO Boxes, and U.S. territories such as Guam, and the Virgin Islands are shipped by USPS and range from 6-10 business days.
FLAT RATES VS. LIVE RATES: Flat rates are the default pricing for shipping. The type of shipping method used depends on the availability and price offered by the carrier. Live rates are calculated based on the exact weight and destination of the order. They are the only shipping methods that offer express options, such as FedEx Standard Overnight or FedEx International rates. Live rates may be less in cost than the flat rates, especially for international orders.
Some products might be shipped separately. Each item we ship may have different printing completion times and delivery times – and some products need to be packaged and shipped separately – such as posters in durable tubes, shirts in poly shipping bags, and mugs in sturdy boxes.
Shipping prices are cumulative. When calculating your shipping prices, make sure to add up the different shipping costs for all of the products ordered. An example of this: you may order a t-shirt with a flat-rate shipping price of $5.00+/-, and each additional t-shirt would add $0.75+/- for shipping. If a printed tote bag is added to the same order, it would also cost an additional $0.75+/-. However, if you choose a different type pf product – such as a mug or poster that requires different packaging – the full shipping price would vary.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER ABOUT DIRECT TO GARMENT (DTG PRINTING ON APPAREL)
You may notice some discoloration or off white residue on your apparel. This is only a special pre-treatment solution used for printing which can sometimes leave marks during the drying process. These are not permanent stains and will wash off after the first wash cycle. Our apparel is created with the latest in garment printing technology and our inks are water-based and eco-friendly. This allows the printed fabric to have a softer touch than traditional screen printed shirts – and they are just as durable.
IMPORTANT NOTE ABOUT EMBROIDERED HATS (CAPS AND BEANIES)
We convert each print file into a format that the embroidery process supports. This process is called digitization and it costs $20+/- per one print file. We digitize only print files that are part of an order. Embroidery for side graphics is additional $6+/- per each side. Partial and full 3D puff is extra $3+/-. The maximum number of colors for 3D puff is 2, and for for flat embroidery it is a maximum of 4 colors. If you mix 3D puff and flat embroidery the total amount of colors per file should not exceed 4 colors. We do not offer 3D puff on the side of hats. Both 3D Puff & Flat – the stroke shall be no less than 4pt. All objects with 3D puff must have at least one diameter that is less than 0.5″. The minimum thickness for objects that are 3-D puff is 0.25″. Due to the highly elastic nature of beanies and slouch beanies, the designs may not be perfectly uniform or justified.
Any claims for misprinted/damaged/defective items must be submitted within 14 days after the product has been received. For packages lost in transit, all claims must be submitted no later than 14 days after the estimated delivery date. Claims deemed an error on our part are covered at our expense.
Once you have clicked on the “confirm” button, it is not possible edit or cancel your order. If you want to change some information, addresses, etc., please Contact Us as soon as possible. We are not bound to make such modifications in your order, but we will do our best on a case-by-case basis. Replacement of products and credits for products claimed as damaged or not received are subject to our investigation and discretion.
The risk of loss and title for such items pass to the Buyer/User upon our delivery to the Carrier. It is the customer’s responsibility to file any claim with a Carrier for a lost shipment if Carrier tracking indicates that the product was delivered. In such case we will not make any refunds and will not resend the product.
We will review replacement/return requests only (a) if there will be missing or broken product, or a print error if it is our fault and (b) if we receive a complaint within 14 days from the day the product was delivered (or within 14 days after the estimated delivery date, if the product is missing).
