Tips & Warnings

Check the size before finalizing your order. Many custom garments are not returnable. The colors on your computer screen may not look the same on the jersey. Check for errors--it is easy to miss something with just one glance. Watch out for inflated shipping costs. Use a company that is reasonable with both its product line and delivery service.
