    Pick the items that you want.
    Choose the quantity and colors for each item
    Place your order through the website (your credit card will not be charged the full amount. We will only charge a 35% deposit). The balance will be charged after you approve your sample.
    Immediately after you place your order, you will be sent a questionnaire via email that will ask all the details (logo, thread colors, etc.) that we require to start your order.
  • How do I send you my logo?
    You can send your logo via email to; logos@CustomizedWear.com
  • How are the prices determined?
    What's included; when you order at least 12 pieces per color, style and size, the price listed includes setup charges and the screen-printing. The quantity discount prices are based on the order having the "same" logo/lettering" on all items. The price that is shown, in the grid, next to each product is based on listed amount of colors for one location. The only additional cost is shipping.

    Quantity Pricing; The more you buy the less you pay! Please follow the pricing that applies to the quantity that you are ordering. The price breaks are 12, 24, 36, 48, 72, 96, 144, 288, 576, 1008, and 1500. Please call for a quote for larger quantities.

    Shirts & Tees; Using the same logo design for all the items that you choose, you may combine items, sizes and colors for pricing. WE CAN ONLY USE A MAXIMUM OF (3) COLORS FOR YOUR LOGO ON POLOS & CAPS.We have a minimum of 6 pieces per style, per color, and per size. For example, if you order 24 tee shirts, 24 sport shirts, and the same design is used for all the items, you would follow the 48-piece price break for each item.

    Caps; because screen-printing requires a special setup and special equipment, headwear must stand-alone for quantity pricing and for minimum quantities. All caps should be ordered in dozens. That is 12 pieces per style, per color, and per size.
  • Can I combine my order with shirts and caps?
    Yes, you may as long as you order the minimum required for either shirts or caps. For example you may order 6 shirts and 12 caps.
  • What if I do not want to order 12-pieces minimum?
    Minimum Quantity; Because of the extensive set-up time and expense required to custom screen-print your logo, we have a 12 piece minimum for screen-printing.
  • Will my logo fit on a shirt?
    Logo position for shirts; we will place your logo on the left chest side of a shirt. You may request that your logo be placed on the opposite right side. Logo size for shirts; For a typical left chest screen-print, the ideal design has a maximum dimension of 3.5" - 4.0". There are exceptions when a design has one dimension that is several times larger than the other. The size of many designs is dictated by the smallest text in the design. We will size your design appropriately based on our experience. Logo position for tees; we will place your logo on the left chest side of the tee shirt. You may request that your logo be placed on the opposite right side. You may also request that your logo be placed front center or back center.

We will determine the logos actual size based on the artwork used. Small text; The smallest text we can print to remain legible is about 0.25" (6mm) high.
