Embroidery Q&A

  • We highly recommend ordering a blank hat/apparel sample before starting a custom order. Once the caps are chosen, they cannot be changed after they are decorated. We suggest ordering a few blank caps or shirts that you may be interested in having us embroider or print for you. We cannot be responsible if product colors are not exactly as shown on the website because dye lots change and material is purchased from various factories. This way you are sure that you like that particular item. You can place your order through our other website; www.capwholesalers.com

  • We have a 36 piece minimum to do 3D. If you have a logo that you want done in 3D, please email us before to see if we can do the logo,"not all logos can be done 3D".  We will quote you the extra cost. Please send your email to; logos@customizedwear.com. Please mention the logo name with 3D on the subject line.
