Preorders FAQ

Limited Time & Availability

Products offered in these campaigns are available for preorder only.  Once a preorders campaign is closed, that’s it: we only produce what your group purchases to reduce waste. It’s better for the environment!  

Preorders Point Person

Each organization that wants to create a preorder campaign will need one point person to reach out to us to start custom artwork, develop order details, and approve the group’s swatch.

Minimum order requirements

Most of our products have a 30 piece minimum: shirts, ties, scarves, shorts, and more. Masks have a 100 piece minimum and socks have a 200 piece minimum.

Your group must meet the Minimum Order Quantity for the preorders campaign to move into production.

In case you do not meet your minimum order requirement of 30 pieces, your order will be cancelled and your card will not be charged.

Turnaround time

We recommend having your preorder period open for around two weeks, and our production and shipping times are between 6-10 weeks for most items. This means the time from purchase to receiving may be between 8-12 weeks, but we think 100% custom made apparel is worth the wait!

Purchase / Billing

As long as the preorders campaign’s minimum is met, your card will be charged for your order when the pre-sales period is closed.

In case the campaign does not meet your minimum order quantity, your purchase will be cancelled and your card will not be charged.


Our shipping options include USPS first class (tracking included), USPS priority (tracking included), or Fedex ground. APO/FPO addresses, please choose USPS. Local orders can also choose pickup at our office in Chicago.
