Visit the School Signature and Typed Name Designs on our website. Our design team loves to help your special vision come to life! We can change and customize each design to match your school or class needs. If you have a school-specific mascot, please send a digital version to email@example.com or choose a stock mascot from our website. Choose a shirt color and 2 ink colors. Want an additional design printed on the front, back, or sleeve? Choose a matching Badge and Sleeve Design to really make your garment amazing! Please allow 1-3 business days for our designers to incorporate your design details into your proof.
Choose the style best fits your needs and budget. Refer to the School Apparel Page on our website for brand descriptions, sizing, and measurements. Please check the specs/measurements for the style you are interested in. Special Tees is not responsible for the fit or cut of any garments you choose.
Don’t forget to apply your discounts. Get your order in early (before Dec. 31, of the current school year) and get the Early Bird Discount! Pay prior to us printing your order and get the Full Payment Discount! If you are a local school, stop by to pick up your completed order at our Gaithersburg, Maryland office, meet the team, and get the Pick Up Discount.
For Signature designs, download Signature Pages from our website, print them out, and have everyone sign! Each Signature Page has specific directions to help you get best results. If your design is incorporating Typed Names rather than Signatures, please email proofread names as an attachment in Word or Excel format (DOC/DOCX or XLS/XLSX) to firstname.lastname@example.org. The list should contain the names exactly as you want them to appear. Consider “First Name Last Name” or “First Name” only. If names are submitted in a format that requires us to manually retype, there is a +10 cent charge per name.
We recommend Youth Medium up to Adult 4X. If you need smaller or larger, we do have options available. Just let us know. Need to know the measurements of your style of choice? Refer to the School Apparel Page on our website for brand details, size ranges, color options, and measurements. Please check the specs/measurements for the style you are interested in. Special Tees is not responsible for the fit or cut of any garments you choose.
NEW: Approval on your order and Payment is required for all orders before we start the proof process. We decided to streamline things and no longer offer a "Full Payment Discount," but instead all pricing shown is with consideration as if this former discount was already applied! Basically, we factored in better pricing for everyone paying up front, without needing to apply an additional discount.
All schools who would like special consideration for Net Terms and payment via Purchase Order, must apply for special consideration. Purchase orders or requests to bill the school should be included with the order form or shortly after we have supplied you with an invoice. If you need an invoice to generate either of these, please request one when you submit your order. Requests to bill the school should be on official school letterhead and signed by the principal. Need updated vendor information? Let us know if you need a W-9. If someone other than you is responsible for issuing payment, please include their contact phone and email information when you submit your order. Production will not start on your order until we have received payment (for Full Payment Discount), a purchase order, or an official request to bill the school and approval of your proof. Please provide a copy of your Tax Exempt Certificate or Letter of Exemption from the issuing authority.
We have updated our Online Order Form to make submitting your order a breeze. It does not require you to do the math for the discounts. We will build your order, calculate your discounts, and send your confirmation via email within 1-business day. For those of you who prefer completing the physical form with pen or pencil, we have it available in the School Order Packet. Send your scanned signature sheets when you submit your order online or send via email rather than snail mail. Refer to directions on the signature pages for best signature results. Typed Names lists should be emailed to email@example.com.
Need mock up to show off to your students and staff before you order? A Pre-Proof can help inspire excitement and school pride! Choose between a free "Simple" Pre proof or a "Custom" mock up (requires a small deposit*) This service is intended for orders that will be placed in the near future (within 30 days of the request). Use your Pre-Proof to help inspire excitement and collect more orders. Get to the next price break! Your Pre-Proof will arrive within a few business days of your request, via email. In order to avoid art fees, revisions, changes, or modifications needed, will be applied to your Official Proof, after your order has been submitted with your names or signatures. If you would like to request a free custom Pre-Proof we would love to help you out!
Some limitations may apply for custom artwork. Request your one free Pre-Proof before Peak Season. We do not offer our Pre-Proof service during our peak season due to volume (April-June). During this season all Official Proofs will be created after orders are submitted, on a first-come first-serve basis. Please allow for 1-3 business days for simple or custom Pre-Proofs.
Free customization of our School Catalog designs is intended for modifying the designs provided to fit your vision when you place your order. If you would like to request original custom artwork, please reach out for a consultation. We try to wave art fees whenever possible, but in certain situations, original artwork requests may require an art fee. We are happy to review each original artwork request. Give us a call or email firstname.lastname@example.org! Our design team is ready to help and review your ideas.
We will give you a call and email as soon as your shirts ship!
