Alternatives to your Favorite Embroidered Promotional Apparel

Promotional apparel is an ever changing space, and right now, there’s a delay in what can be sourced out to companies searching for the best way to get their messaging out there. We still want to be your partner in promotional apparel and embroidery, so we’ve gathered our stores and created a collection filled with just about everything we have that’s well stocked. We also have some alternatives to fan favorites listed below!

Shipping is delayed - for everyone

Due to the pandemic, many countries are taking precautions to keep their workers safe. This means a lower supply of goods for purchase by American consumers, or a more expensive product. Because our suppliers want to continue providing high quality apparel at affordable prices, the aim is to wait until stock levels are at a better level, causing a delay in products getting to you.
