The Full Custom Process - Follow these six steps to a perfect order
Request for Full Custom Cycling Apparel
The first step in creating full custom cycling apparel is to complete the Request Form. The Request Form asks for basic information including: team name, contact Information, including email and phone, desired due date, sizes and quantities [Minimum order requirement of at least 5 units per garment style], and any special instructions. This is the best way to get the conversation rolling.
When we receive the Request Form, we will send the information needed to take the next steps in developing a custom design. In the meantime, start to get your logos together and think about your design. Full customized kits are created in various ways.
Option 1: Complete a Custom Template. By having a completed template, it will take less time and money!
Option 2: Provide a past reference for the design. We can take a past jersey redesign it by us.
Option 3: Have us create your kit from scratch. All we need is the logos and a direction and we will create an exclusive kit for you and your team.
Receive a Quote
We will provide a formal price quote after the source artwork and apparel have been chosen. Once we have all the vital information for the kit, we will send a formal quote for approval and a fit kit application. The fit kit is a collection of actual clothing samples in various sizes to ensure proper sizing. Click to download our ATD Size Chart and FAQs
We take pride in our designs and what we present to our customers. We use the latest techniques and technology to make cutting edge designs for you. Sometimes you may want to revise a design or change a color. We allow up to 3 free revisions before additional design time is needed. We will work with you until your design is perfect and you are completely satisfied.
After all revisions are made, we will prepare a final proof for approval. We will provide a .PDF design proof and a fabric color swatch for your final approval. Once approved, it's off to the last step.
Our expert team of printers and seamstresses will produce the kit in our factory in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. By using the most up to date sublimation process, we will add a rich, deep color to the polyester fibers of the garment. The Pantone color matching system will ensure that the colors desired are the colors you get. We will keep you posted on the progress of you order. An optional e-mail can be sent after printing, sublimating, cutting, sewing, and packaging. We will email you the tracking number when we ship. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us at email@example.com

Thread Color Upgrade
You might be asking yourself, "Can different thread make my kit look cooler?" and the truth is, it can. This custom feature is something that might be over looked in the creation of most kits, but it adds great depth and a professionalism that other teams can only dream about. Changing thread color can break-up colors, add visibility, and brings a design element that most companies don't offer. Give it a shot on your next kit and see how one small change can add so much!
