Each BARK OUT LOUD custom graphic is carefully drawn to capture the unique personality and beauty of your dog. After purchase, you'll receive an email from me asking for reference photos of your dog. The whole design process may take 1-3 weeks as each design is hand illustrated just for you. You'll get a visual proofs prior to production of the tote bag and the opportunity to revise the design. Then, your graphic will be cut from high-quality glitter or heat transfer film and pressed onto a 100% cotton tote bag.
You do not need to pick colors for graphic upfront, the exact colors will be determined during the proofing process. Let me know your color preferences and I'll design around that. The maximin graphic size will be 10 inches wide or tall (whichever is greater) and may have multiple colors. Tote bags will be black unless you request another color (please allow extra time for ordering in alternate bag colors). Bags measure 14" x 14" with to top handles.
You can REORDER your graphic anytime.
Bark Out Loud uses only the highest quality HTV to make our shirts; ensuring that your graphic won't crack with overtime. Our HTV Film colors are vibrant, opaque and won't fade. Glitter colors are amazingly sparkly and wont shed all over you

These decals (a.k.a vinyl stickers) are cut from a solid piece of high quality waterproof pressure sensitive vinyl with portions of vinyl that are not part of the design are removed. Then, the remaining pieces that make up the design are then covered in transfer tape, which is used to transfer the decal from the paper backing onto a surface, such as a car window. Decals will permanently adhere to any smooth surface such as glass, metal or plastic. Decals will last up to 6 years outdoors and almost forever indoors. Application instructions included.
Air temperature need to be above 70°F (21°C) with no humidity.
1. Clean surface well, allow to dry.
2. Lay transfer tape side down of a flat surface. Peel the paper backing off. Check that ALL the sections of the decal are attached to the transfer tape.
3. Holding the transfer tape taunt, apply decal to surface.
4. Starting from center of the decal and working toward the edges, with your hands, rub the decal onto the surface. Then, using a plastic card, or decal squeegee, to firmly rub and smooth out the decal to ensure full contact with the surface and to remove air bubbles.
5. Starting at a corner, roll back the transfer tape. After the tape is removed, give the decal a good run with your fingertips.
Vinyl decals will permanently adhere to any smooth surface such as glass, plastic or metal. You can stick them onto car windows, water bottles, binders, smooth metal, mirrors, smooth walls, phone cases, laptops, tablet cases, etc.
Some surfaces may be damaged by removal of vinyl decals if done incorrectly. For glass, use a flat blade razor to scape decal off. The same technique can be used on metal, taking care not to scratch the surface. For plastics, vinyl decals can be peeled off with a fingernail. Use adhesive solvent to remove any glue residue.
