Nervous about placing a custom order? Here are a few resources to help with a successful order:

  2. Colors on your computer screen may differ to how they appear in person. Because of this, we advise you to order swatches to ensure you are completely happy with your color and fabric choices!

  4. We know that it’s hard to visualize your colors and design before ordering, so we offer FREE illustration services . We recommend using this service if you are ordering for a group of 5 or more.

  6. Sizing is always hard when you are ordering online, but we have great resources to help you! We recommend taking measurements, then comparing those measurements to our sizing chart. You can view our sizing chart, how-to measure videos, and additional tips on our sizing page. 

  8. If you are for sure wanting to order a garment for your team, order just one garment to see the final product before placing your team order.

  10. If you are unsure about colors, fabrics, sizing, contact us via email, phone, or live chat! We’re here to answer your questions, assist you through the ordering process, and help you find a look you love!
