Do the colors of the customization match the colors of the products
We attempt to provide the very best possible color match between our customized options and our products. Due to the way different fabrics accept dyes, we cannot guarantee exact color matches between our products and the customization.
Will all tackle twill letters be the same size on every uniform?
There are two groups of letter sizes for tackle twill, youth and adult. Tackle twill is sized depending on whether the product is a youth or adult size garment.
If there are both youth and adult sizes on an order, both tackle twill size groups will be used on their respective garments (youth size tackle twill on youth size garments, adult size tackle twill on adult size garments) so that all uniforms look consistent.
What sizes and locations of embroidery designs are available?
There are four different sizes of embroidery available. They are leg, small designs, large designs, and back logo.
Leg designs can be added to shorts, skirts, or pants, and are smaller than small designs. Unless otherwise noted, leg designs default to the left leg.
Small designs are most often placed on the top front left chest area of a warmup jacket. Unless otherwise noted, small designs default to the left side of the jacket.
Large designs are larger than small designs and are most often placed on the front of tees and tanks, as well as on duffle bags and backpacks.
Any of our large designs can be further enlarged to be placed on the back of a jacket or tee. These are larger than large designs so they stand out across the back of the garment.
Is it possible to add customization to item locations that are not listed?
Some items may be customized in locations other than those listed on our site. Please contact our Sales Department at 800-299-7822 for other possible location options.
Is there a character limit for names/lines of embroidery?
There is a 12 character limit for names and lines of embroidery, including punctuation and spaces.
Is it possible to buy the embroidery design or tackle twill letters only, without it being on a product?
Unfortunately, we do not offer the ability to purchase only the embroidery designs or tackle twill letters separately at this time.
Do embroidery designs have to say cheer/cheerleader/cheerleading?
Embroidery designs that say cheer, cheerleader, or cheerleading can be modified for an additional fee; please contact our Sales Department at 800-299-7822 for more information and to get a price quote.
