Here is a quick breakdown of the process involved in taking your custom t-shirts and from vision to reality. The process is easy, and best of all, we take care of all the hard stuff.
There are 5 steps involved in getting your Unit T-shirt project from a simple idea, to finished products in your units hands. They are:
1) HAVE A REPRESENTATIVE SEND DESIGN IDEAS
First, a representative from your unit will contact us with your design ideas, and we'll discuss the general idea of what you are looking for. This person will become the "Point-of-Contact" (POC) for the remainder of the order, tasked with carrying out the order process on the unit side.
Once you are ready to get started, we'll collect a small Design Deposit of $100. With this, our Design Team will get started creating your custom design. This deposit will be refunded in full once your unit places their order!
In exchange for all their hard work to carry out this process, POC's will receive a $50 credit toward their own order!
2) SEND OUT A "STORE-IN-A-BOX" TO YOUR UNIT
Our innovative "Store-In-A-Box" is a kit that we send to your unit, with everything you will need to complete your order from beginning to end in a single 12" cube.
- Physical samples of each product we sell (so you can see and feel the quality)
- A Product Catalog with pricing and product information
- Order Forms for each person in your unit
- A Return Shipping Label
Unit members will be able check out the samples to figure out what they want, and place their own order using an Order Form.
Various payment methods are offered for each person, that way there is no collecting of cash or managing spreadsheets for you. Instead, we bill each person individually and will prepare their order, just for them.
3) REVIEW DESIGN CONCEPT & ORDER
While the Store-In-A-Box is en-route to your location, our Design Team will be working on your design.
Sometimes we simply do a Redraw - taking your original logo and redrawing it in high-res with more detail. In most cases, however, we will use your ideas to create a completely custom-made design that embodies your unit, using a combination of unit-supplied references and our own ideas.
Once a design is approved, we will then create realistic Digital Mockups of the finished products for the unit to view. Between the Digital Mockups of the design and the physical samples in the SIB, everyone knows exactly what they will be getting and can order with confidence!
4) MAIL BACK SAMPLE KIT WITH ORDERS & PAYMENT
Once all unit members have placed their orders, the POC will collect the samples and all Order Forms, and ship back the entire Store-In-A-Box using the prepaid return label.
As soon as we have the SIB in hand, we'll immediately get started processing your unit's orders, sending everyone an email confirmation for their records, and putting your products into production!
5) PRODUCTION AND DELIVERY/SHIPMENT
Production takes about 3 weeks from the time a design is finalized. Once complete, your order will be inspected, packaged, and prepared for delivery.
If your unit is in anywhere in Southern California, we will be happy to deliver personally! Otherwise, your entire order will be shipped together via USPS Priority, or USPS Priority International (for units deployed overseas) and they usually only take about a week to get to you!
