Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any questions not answered in this FAQ, email us at info@gamefaces.com

 

What is the process for ordering items with a school purchase order?

You can actually order online, by email (sales@gamefaces.com), or by phone (1-800-627-4003) with your school PO. Whichever way is easier for you.

When you order online, at checkout you can choose PO for your payment option and enter the PO number. If your school or organization requires a purchase order number, then we would require it, also. If your school does not usually use purchase orders, then we do not require it. You can type “none” in for the number.

 

 

How do I know your tattoos are safe?

Our temporary tattoos have been tested by the United States Testing Company, Inc. for flammability, toxicology (eye and skin irritation), and chemical analysis. These tests resulted in zero irritation. Our temporary tattoos are in compliance with all applicable government standards for consumer products; they are considered cosmetics for testing purposes.

Although our temporary tattoos have tested safe for eye and skin irritability, we recommend that the tattoos should not be used near the eyes or on sensitive skin. They should be removed only with rubbing alcohol or cellophane tape, and should NEVER be rubbed or scratched off, as this will irritate the skin underneath the transfer. 

It may reassure you to know that we have applied our tattoos to children in hospitals in Akron, Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, to help cheer them up.  We have also had hospitals place custom orders for our temporary tattoos.

 

 

How do you remove the traditional (non-press-on version) tattoos?

DO NOT rub, scrub, or scratch the tattoo off, as this may damage your skin! To remove, press tape over the tattoo, then peel away the design, and repeat as necessary.  Tattoos also dissolve with baby oil or rubbing alcohol. Some make-up removers (e.g., Mary Kay) and baby wipes (e.g. Huggies) can remove any adhesive residue, as well.

If you are selling them as a fundraiser or applying them to customers, YOU MUST make sure your customers understand how to remove them. When we ship your order, we include a sheet of instructions that you can copy and hand out to your customers.  Or, simply give the customer the paper backing from the tattoo application; the removal instructions are printed there as well.

 

 

How is your quality better than other temporary tattoos?

We use a unique process to make our temporary tattoos: silk screening. This gives the tattoo bright, vibrant colors that last for days. They also apply easier, without ripping or shredding.Once you apply them, they are waterproof. They will not run in the rain or wash off in the shower.

 

 

How are the traditional (non-press-on version) temporary tattoos applied?

The tattoos come on a small sheet of paper with a thin cover sheet on top.
Cut out one tattoo and peel off the cover sheet. Place the tattoo face down on clean, dry skin (make-up may prevent the tattoo from adhering to the skin properly).
Take a wet cloth or paper towel and press it against the paper backing of the tattoo for 20 seconds, or until the paper is thoroughly soaked. Carefully peel the paper away, and use the wet cloth to smooth down the edges of the tattoo against the skin.

 

 

How long will the traditional (non-press-on version) tattoos last?

Our tattoos will last from 1 to 5 days before they show excessive wear. They can be removed by pressing tape on top of them and peeling the tattoo away, or use rubbing alcohol to dissolve the tattoo.
DO NOT RUB, SCRUB OR SCRATCH OFF the tattoos, as you may damage the skin in the process.

 

 

Do the tattoos wash off with soap and water?

NO!! They are waterproof!  Please do not try to wash the tattoos off with soap and water.
If you are selling them as a fundraiser or applying them to customers, YOU MUST make sure your customers understand how to remove them.
They can be removed by pressing tape on top of the tattoo and then peeling it away, or use rubbing alcohol to dissolve the tattoo.
DO NOT RUB, SCRUB OR SCRATCH OFF the tattoos, as you may damage the skin in the process. When we ship your order, we include a sheet of instructions that you can copy and hand out to your customers, or simply give the customer the paper backing from the tattoo application; the removal instructions are printed there as well.

 

 

What are the Press-On Waterless Game Faces Temporary Tattoos?

The Press-On Waterless Game Faces® Tattoos are the latest technology in temporary tattoos, and the high quality you expect from Game Faces® temporary tattoos. Printed on clear, hypoallergenic medical tape, Press-On Game Faces are safe, simple to use and comfortable to wear.
Just peel the waterless tattoo from the sheet and press it where you want it.

The letter “W” will appear before the code(SKU/item number) for our press-on version. Not all of our designs are produced this way, but we continue to add additional ones.

 

 

How large are the tattoos?

It depends on what category of tattoos you are looking at.
Click on the picture you are interested in on the View Details page, you will see a title over the picture of the tattoo.
If it says:

Temporary Tattoos: They are each about 1-¼ inches in diameter.
Spirit Strips:  They are each about 2 inches wide.

Spirit Accents:  there are 16 mini tattoos on a sheet, and they are each about ¼ inch in diameter. Two are slightly larger to accommodate the thumb.
Game Bands: They are each about ¾ inch high and 4-¾ inches wide. (Our GameBand designs are limited stock and will not be printed once our current inventory is gone.)

 

 

Can I get the tattoos in a different color?

Many of our designs come in different colors. Usually, if a color is typed at the bottom of the tattoo picture (e.g. H-07-2 Blue) then there is more than one color available. Try entering the design description as a word search, and you should get all the different colors and styles available.  Some designs come in ten different color alternatives, some have just a couple alternatives, and some come only in one color scheme.
 
If you do a search and you are still not sure, please feel free to call us at (800) 627-4003 or e-mail us with the code number of the design and color you are looking for.

 

 

Can I mix and match the tattoos I want?

Yes, you can mix designs to get to a quantity discount.
We ask that you order in multiples of 10 per design, but we will give you whatever quantities you need.

 

 

Can you mix designs on the same sheet?

No, we do not sell our tattoo designs per sheet anymore. Now, all of our tattoos come printed on a “card” that contains two individual tattoos.

 

 

Do I have to order 25 sheets per design of tattoos?

No, you can buy whatever quantities you need of any item.
We do pre-package our tattoos in bags of 100(50 cards), so orders in multiples of 100, will be processed more quickly. If you need less than 100, we will be happy to open up a bag and count out whatever is needed to fill your order.
