The below listed manufacturers require decoration for all products sold through blankstyle.com. You will be unable to checkout without either removing these items from your order or adding decoration.
This policy is mandated by the manufacturer and is out of blankstyle.com's control. We understand that you may be a decorator. Please consider our low decoration prices as a possibility for outsourcing your decoration services. We can ship blind to your customer upon request. If this does not work for you, there are many manufacturers who do not require decoration and have excellent product line selections. Please don't hesitate to ask if you need comparable suggestions.
- Alternative Apparel
- Eddie Bauer
- New Era
Often orders will ship from multiple warehouses especially when more than one brand is ordered. In this case you will receive your goods on different days in different packages. Do not be alarmed if you receive a package that does not contain your entire order. It is likely you will receive the balance of your order within the next few days.
If you do not receive the entirety of your order within the seven business day time frame allowed for shipping, you may follow the instructions below to open a missing goods claim. If you receive incorrect goods or you only receive a portion of your order it is likely there was a picking error. It is your responsibility to contact us within thirty days of your order arriving to inform us of your missing goods. If we do not hear from you regarding missing goods within thirty days from the date your order arrived, we will be unable to open or investigate a missing goods claim.
If you elect to ship your goods to a third party, such as a printer, rather than receive them yourself, and a dispute arises regarding missing or incorrectly shipped goods within the allotted thirty days, we will do our best to investigate. The resolution will be determined based on our shipping records.
If you believe your blankstyle.com print order is missing goods above and beyond the allowable shortage, you should follow the instructions listed below to create a missing goods claim.
Visit your order history page. View your order history then click on the order for which you are missing goods. Click on report missing items and then fill out the form.
Please be sure to include ALL MISSING GOODS on your missing goods claim. We are only able to investigate one missing goods claim per order.
Domestic Orders containing over $199 of one brand will receive free ground shipping for that brand.
Domestic orders over $399 will receive free ground shipping for the entire order.
Orders shipping outside of the 48 contiguous US states do not fall under the blankstyle.com Domestic shipping policy and therefore are not eligible for free shipping.
Decoration orders do not qualify for free shipping because it is likely we will have to ship blank garments to our decoration shop from more than one location. See Reducing shipping costs for suggestions on reducing the overall cost to ship.
One way to ensure your order ships out of only one location and to ensure your shipping costs are low, is to buy garments within a brand. Products of the same brand are often times warehoused and shipped together. If you would like suggestions on keeping your shipping low please call us at (866) 792-5265.
SHIPPING CHARGES ARE AN ESTIMATE.
In order to provide the widest selection of quality blank apparel we ship out of many different warehouses located all over the United States. For this reason it is difficult to tell exactly what shipping will cost. Our shopping cart automatically ESTIMATES shipping costs. From time to time these estimates are incorrect and the charge will be manually adjusted. If we have to ship from additional locations requiring an adjusted charge we will request your approval via email prior to shipment.
SHIPPING TIME FRAMES
Orders typically ship next business day, or sooner. Because we ship from different warehouses, depending upon what you purchase, your items may arrive separately, and on different days and/or times.
Depending on where you are located and what time your order is placed orders can ship as soon as same day! Orders often arrive within a day two from the day they are placed. To be safe please allow five to seven business days from your order date as it is possible we will have to ship across the country to reach you.
You will be emailed a tracking number as soon as one is available. Keep in mind your order may ship from more than one location and you can log into your account and view tracking for each shipment as they go out.
We strive to get product to you as soon as we can as we know time is of great importance. For this reason we ship out of warehouses located all over the USA. We ship from the closest location available containing stock to fill your order.
Cutoffs for same day shipping are 12pm for all warehouses in their respective time frame. If you are on the east coast and place your order at 9am and we have stock in an east coast warehouse your order will likely ship same day! Same day shipments are not guaranteed.
If you have an important date you need your order by please let us know what it is you will be ordering and where that order will ship to and we will be able to provide you with a delivery time line.
We do not normally require signature for delivery but may elect to do so depending on the shipping address. Please let us know if you will not be available to sign for your package. Shipping times may be increased during the holidays depending on the carrier. If you need your order by a date prior to the 3-7 business day time frame, please proceed with the expedited shipping instructions listed below.
METHOD OF SHIPMENT
Standard orders ship UPS Ground. Expedited shipping is possible for an additional charge.
If you would like expedited shipping please specify the exact method of shipping you would like in the order comments at checkout. The additional charges for the method you’ve selected will be added to your order and you will be sent a revised invoice.
In the instance your order has to come from multiple locations we will require that you approve the expedited shipping charges prior to shipping your order.
Because of the number of locations we ship from often times we will be able to get your order to you within a tight time frame without charging you for expedited shipping. If you are interested in receiving your order faster but do not want pay for expedited shipping please give us a call at 866.792.5265 and we will go over your options based on the contents of your order.
Domestic shipping includes all of the Contiguous United States, and specifically excludes all outlying states or territories including but not limited to Hawaii, Alaska, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
International shipping includes all outlying states and territories of the United States including but not limited to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Guam.
Because we must ship international orders to our hub for consolidation we have an order minimum of $250. At this time we do not ship sample orders internationally.
METHOD OF SHIPMENT
USPS Priority Mail tracking will NOT be automatically available. We can provide you with a certificate of mailing to prove your package was sent at no additional charge. If you would like to add tracking, signature confirmation, or Insurance, please specify in the order comments section at checkout. We will add the additional fees and send you an updated invoice.
If you do not elect the additional services, by placing your order you agree not to hold blankstyle liable for delivery. Further more you agree that a certificate of mailing is sufficient proof of shipment, and that once mailed the order is your responsibility to locate and collect. Contact us for details prior to ordering if you have questions.
You do have the option to ship with a carrier of your choice. In this case handling charges may be applied. Please enter you shipper number along with the carrier you prefer in the order comments section at checkout.
Please allow 10 to 14 business days for international delivery. If you have questions please Contact us
Shipping carriers are up to 99% error free in delivering however there are occasionally packages that are lost prior to or after delivery.
We know that receiving the merchandise you ordered is of the utmost importance. When a package is lost in transit we will take all necessary steps to help locate and deliver the missing package as soon as possible. Please keep in mind that blankstyle.com can not be held responsible for delays caused by acts of god or the shipping carrier. If you have an important date to meet shipping is a risk you take in meeting that date.
Lost packages happen for a couple reasons and as such have unique resolutions.
Types of lost packages
- Lost in transit – Occasionally due to sorting errors, inclement weather or simple mis-placement packages are lost by the carrier. In these cases the tracking number will generally indicate an “exception” with notes as to why the package has not been delivered. Generally these packages are eventually found and delivered.
- Open an investigation with UPS (takes 7-10 days to complete)
- Carrier typically will find and deliver your package
- In the case your package is not found we will either refund you or replace your order.
What we will do
- Stolen – Instances of porch piracy are on the rise. Porch piracy refers to your packages being successfully delivered and then subsequently stolen off of your porch! This is a case of theft and not the fault of blankstyle.com or the shipping carrier and we recommend you contact your local police and report the theft immediately. There are a few things we will attempt on your behalf and a few things you can do on your own. If you are worried your shipping location may be at risk for porch piracy you can request to sign for your package in order comments at checkout.
- Check with your neighbors as sometimes packages are mistakenly delivered next door.
- File a police report.
- Contact your credit card company with the police report as many purchases are covered under a buyer’s protection plan free of charge.
- Contact your homeowners or renters insurance provider and file a claim.
- We will file a claim with the carrier and attempt to retrieve a credit for the stolen package. If successful we will refund you.
- Unfortunately timing on resolution on these types of claims can be lengthy and because typically this package has been delivered by the carrier
- there are no guarantees we will be successful in obtaining this credit.
What you can do
What we will do
We know that you may be working on a tight deadline with no time to wait for the investigative process to complete. Unfortunately because often times lost packages are found and delivered during the investigative process we cannot simply send you out a replacement order at no charge while the investigation progresses.
What we can do to help out is waive ground shipping on a replacement order and return the original order free of charge if it ends up being found and delivered.
Shipping carriers do occasionally require signature for delivery based on the drivers discretion. If this happens most carriers will leave you a notice of attempted delivery and a method for retrieving your package before returning the package undeliverable. A drivers discretion to require a signature from the recipient is out of blankstyle.com's control, packages returned undeliverable fall under the blankstyle.com Undeliverable Orders policy.
Undeliverable orders will not be re-shipped to you. They will be processed as a return, and store credit will be issued so that you can re-order. Store credit may be subject to a 5% restocking fee. Shipping charges are non-refundable. Return shipping charges will be deducted from your refund or store credit. If you received free shipping on the initial order, the cost to ship your order, as well as the return shipment costs will be deducted from your store credit.
At blankstyle.com we offer four main methods of decoration. Embroidery, Screen printing, Direct to Garment printing and Sublimation.
There are three different ways to add a decoration to your blank apparel order.
- Instant Quote - Works for all methods of decoration. Add garments to your shopping cart upload your artwork and receive a quote
- At Checkout – Works for all methods of decoration. Add garments to your cart and you will be given the option to add a decoration at checkout.
- Designer – Works for screen printing only. Add custom fonts, create a design, or upload your own and get a quote prior to checking out.
As a standard procedure, we will send you a proof for approval 24-48 hours from the time payment is made, and prior to print. The proof we send you will reflect the actual artwork that will be printed. Artwork is proofed to scale on virtual garments which are proportionate to your actual garments ordered. We will come as close as we can to matching the printed garments to the approved virtual mock up. Due to print tolerances, and garment variance, both in size, color, and construction, artwork size and location may vary on your finished product.
You will need to closely inspect the proof we provide, as it is representative of the artwork being printed. If you want to make changes to artwork sizing, please note the dimensions shown on the proof, and request dimensional changes. If you want to specify artwork color please do so in solid coated pantone colors. If you do not specify pantones we will do our best to match the colors in your design to a pantone color. Keep in mind most monitors are not color corrected and therefore will not accurately or uniformly display colors.If you need your print to reflect a specific shade of color please reference a pantone book prior to specifying a pantone color.
We allow you to print the same logo on multiple garments or color versions of the same garment within the same print run! If you elect to take advantage of this unique opportunity, you also must be aware that any one pantone may print in a slightly different shade depending on the color of the garment that pantone is printed on.
We will not print until we receive your written proof approval. Your written proof approval is your agreement to print the artwork shown in the colors specified within tolerance as sized and shown on the proofed garment.
If you feel a virtual mock up is not satisfactory, and prefer to be exact with regards to your design on specific garments, we can provide you with a top of production sample,
Screen Printing: $129.00 per design up to eight colors plus the price of the garment
Direct to Garment: $20 per print plus the price of the garment.
Embroidery: Custom Quote
Sublimation: Custom Quote
A rough estimate of a reasonable in hand date for a print order is anywhere from 6-12 business days from the time you approve your proof.
Print orders typically take from 5-7 business days in process. We ship UPS ground as a standard method which can take an additional 1-5 days depending on your location.
If you have a specific in hand date you need the goods by, please be sure to select your date at checkout or enter your need date under the order comments section at checkout.
By standard practice we will do everything we can to accommodate your in hand date without charging you anything additionally. However, if our processing time has to be less than five days, there may be a rush fee associated, and if shipping needs to expedited in order to reach you in time there may be expedited shipping charges.
Processing time starts from the point you approve your proof.
If we agree to rush your order, we will do our best to ensure the order reaches you by your need date. We guarantee you will receive your goods by your in hand need date or we will refund your rush processing.
Because of the shortened production time it is critical that we are able to contact you at any time between the hours of 7am and 4pm pacific standard time. Please let us know if you have a preferred email address or phone number we should be using. Each time we attempt to reach you without success, and every day we wait for approval after providing a proof your order may be delayed up to one business day.
If for any reason the order does not deliver by your need date you will be refunded the rush fees but not the shipping fees. Decoration orders are non-cancelable non-returnable regardless of the date they deliver.
All art must be in Vector format. If art is not in vector format, we offer a graphics service for $60/hr. A standard logo takes roughly a half hours work to fully vector for print. Under standard policy color separation for print is provided free of charge.
There are many different screen print processes that require the use of different inks to create a specific look or feel. Unless otherwise specified we print using a plastisol based ink. If you would like to create a certain look or feel, or have question about what your finished products will look or feel like using different ink mediums, please ask a representative for suggestions. When you receive your proof if you have elected to use any ink other than plastisol, that proof should specify the ink you are using prior to your approval. If you approve a proof that does not specify an ink medium, you are approving a plastisol print. Keep in mind inks other than plastisol may be an additional charge.
We will attempt to match coloring according to solid coated pantones or thread color. We will size and place according to approved mock up. Custom garment decoration is not an exact science, placement and image size may vary by up to one half inch garment to garment and coloring may vary by one half shade run to run. In addition due to differences in equipment, ink, threads and fabrics designs can vary slightly in appearance run to run. This is especially true when re-printing on different garment types or colors.
We cannot guarantee a perfect match to a previous run under any circumstance. We will however attempt to match a previous garment by adjusting during the decoration process if we are made aware in advance and if the garment we are matching is provided for reference. Decorations within tolerance will not be considered for re-print or return.
We offer Direct to garment printing as an effective solution for our customers who would like to produce a small number of shirts. This process is especially effective when printing lots of color. In traditional screen printing a screen must be burned per color printed and at $22 per sceen set up prices add up fast making most high color small run jobs un-affordable. Although Direct to garment is a great alternative to screen printing there are a couple drawbacks.
- The machines color profile dictates the colors printed much like your desktop inkjet printer it is impossible for us to match colors exactly unfortunately we cannot guarantee color tone or shade. We can print a one off sample for your inspection at twenty dollars per print. This price does not include shipping or garment costs
- Unlike screen printing higher quantities do not make the Direct to garment process more efficient. For this reason as quantities raise over forty eight pieces screen printing becomes the more cost effective option.
- Because the printer uses highly sensitive water based inks digital printing has different results on different fabric types and colors. White garments have the best results with dark garments having the worst. Garment colors other than white must be one hundred percent cotton. Varied garment colors or fabric make ups will lead to varied print results.
For orders over 100 pieces, there is a shortage allowance of 2% for mis-prints and/or manufacturer's defects. You will be credited to your original payment method for garments that are not delivered.
It is our goal to ensure you are completely satisfied in a timely manner! It is your responsibility to check your goods against your order upon receipt. If you believe you are missing goods in excess of the allowable shortage, please open a Missing Goods Claim. If you believe your goods were misprinted or are otherwise defective in excess of the allowable tolerance, please open a Defective Goods Claim.
Claims must be open within seven days of receiving your order. Unfortunately because we have limited time to re print, if you do not open the claim within the seven day time frame allowed we may be unable to investigate your claim. If you decide to charge back your order rather than complete a claim we will pursue the order balance along with all fees incurred through collections and you will forfeit your right to an investigation.
We do not offer refunds on printed merchandise. If we find that your goods are not within Print Tolerance, and were misprinted, we will reprint your garments to spec at no additional charge to you. In order to qualify for a reprint you must provide us with the misprinted garments.
You sold out of all your shirts? Awesome! You can easily create a Print Re-Order from any past order by going to your account and clicking the re-order link.
You will have the option to make changes to quantities and you can also let us know of any other changes or specifics in the notes section. Once we receive your re-order we will create a custom quote and send it to you for review. If everything looks as it should simply check out from your quote. If not please respond to the quote, or give us a call and we will adjust as necessary.
Due to variances in the embellishment process, If it is important that colors match exactly on your Re-Order you must provide us with a garment from your initial run to match. This is relevant and important whether or not you are re-creating a garment printed with blankstyle.com or one that you initially printed elsewhere. If you do not provide us a garment to match we will match pantones on the approved mock up.
Tiered pricing is based on brand You will receive automatically calculated quantity discounts based on the number of items of the same brand you have ordered. You CAN mix and match color, size, and SKU to receive your quantity discount. Pricing is subject to change!
In order to provide the largest possible selection we list over thirty five hundred products for sale! We list our products based on pricing provided to us by our manufacturers. Because there are so many products available and because pricing fluctuates weekly, occasionally the listed price is not accurate. If pricing is not accurate for product you have on order we will notify you of the price change prior to processing your credit card and we will give you the option to cancel your order.
Coupon discounts are only valid on regularly priced merchandise, and cannot be combined with additional offers or sales. Coupon usage is specifically excluded for sample orders.
We will provide you blank samples at our sixty plus piece pricing tier. At checkout specify in your order comments "sample order please price accordingly". We will charge you the full amount of your order, and then issue you store credit for the difference to be used towards your larger purchase. If you have ordered samples from us in the past and have not placed a subsequent order for one or more of the sampled products, we will not grant you sample pricing again. You will not be granted sample pricing on the same good twice.

Your card may be declined for one of two reasons
1. Straight Decline – Funds are not available at the time the card is attempted
What to expect
We will reach out to you and make you aware of the issue and continue to attempt the card. If we are successful we will ship your order.
2. AVS Mismatch – The billing address you submitted does not match the billing address on file with your bank. This could be as simple as a formatting error.
What to expect
Each time your card is attempted and the address match system fails, your bank will remove the money from your account as a pending authorization and set it aside for our system to capture. It may look like your card was charged more than once. These pending authorizations will be released by your bank usually within twenty four hours.
We will send you an email and attempt to call you regarding the address mismatch you should contact your bank and ensure the address they have on file is accurate.
If for any reason we are unable to match the addresses a three way call to the bank is an option to resolve.
As soon as we are able to successfully match your address and accept one of the pending authorizations we will ship your merchandise.
