Ordering Custom Apparel
Ordering is easy and paperless.
You call-in or email your order.
Now, it really helps if you know what you want, or at least have an idea of what you’re looking for. We can help you if you like.
Expect the process to take about two weeks, taking into account that we must submit all designs for trademark approval.
We're an approved vendor for FSU and Leon County Schools, and require a PO (purchase order) number before we begin any work. Take this into account when ordering.
We accept most types of payment and PO's from FSU. P-Cards/ credit, or debit cards incur a 3.5% convenience fee. If you're ordering online, the credit card fees are already added.
Tax exemption documents are required at time of order. We prefer to get paid in full within 30 days. Remaining balances due after 30 days incur a 2% administrative fee.
We provide free on-campus delivery, depending on the size of your order. Huge orders might incur a nominal fee.
What do shirts cost?
Well, that all depends:
TYPE OF SHIRT
Regular short sleeved t-shirts are by far the most inexpensive way to go. Baby-doll, long sleeve, pocket-T’s, and women's cut shirts will cost more. Sizes above XL also cost more.
Polos can range in prices based on material, brand, and features. Color is rarely a cost determining factor for polos.
DO YOU HAVE A DESIGN?
Is your design “camera ready art?” If not, expect a graphic design charge of $50. And in all honesty, we can save you time and money by designing the graphics for your apparel. This is our thing. Let us do it. ;-)
Embroidery digitization normally costs $75. This is a standard fee charged by most embroiders to digitize your artwork in preparation for stitching.
COLOR OF SHIRT
White T-shirts and “heathers” typically cost about 30% less than colored shirts.
QUANTITY OF PIECES IN YOUR ORDER
A “short run” (less than 35 shirts) will cost more per shirt as opposed to a larger run.
PLACEMENT OF DESIGN(S)
Each print or embroidery location will add increased costs to your order.
NUMBER OF INKS USED
Each color we print on your shirt requires a separate screen, costing more in supplies and labor. Keep in mind certain colors of ink require a white “base coat” to go underneath the ink. This counts as a separate screen. FSU-mandated garnet and gold inks also cost slightly more since they're custom-ordered.
DETAIL AND SIZE OF EMBROIDERY
Embroidery costs are typically based on the number of stitches. This means large or heavily detailed embroidery costs more to produce. The number and colors of thread rarely increases the price.
