How to Order

Five Easy Ordering Steps

1. An approximate 50% deposit is required before we can begin any work on your order, including making your proof. We DO NOT need exact sizes or quantities at this time. If you think you will be ordering 25 jerseys then we need a 50% deposit for a 25-jersey order. We need your final sizes and quantities only when your proof is approved. 

2. Upon receipt of your deposit, you will be emailed a username and password. Log in to the Champion System Control Panel to upload your design files.

3. About two weeks after you have uploaded your design files you'll receive an email from us to let you know your proof is ready. Log back into the Customer Control Panel to review the proofs.  Let us know what you think of the designs and if you want to make any changes. Only when you are completely satisfied will we begin production. Sit back and relax knowing we are making exactly what you ordered.

4. When you have finished approving all your proofs, we are ready to start printing your uniforms. At this time we'll need your final sizes and quantities. Just complete our easy-to-use order form and email it back to us. 

5. Orders are normally shipped 6-8 weeks after proof approval. 

How To Design Your Uniform

Our customers generally fall info two categories: teams that send us amazing graphic design files in Adobe Illustrator and teams that send us hand-sketched designs with crayons, markers, etc. We have no problem working with both teams and we will never charge you a fee for "artwork clean-up." Of course, the better the artwork you send us, the quicker we can make your first proof.

Keep in mind that we are a printing company not a design firm. We make the designs our customers ask us to produce. We do not create original designs from scratch. If you want an eye-popping original design, we suggest you contact a professional graphic designer first and then send us the completed artwork.

How To Design Your Uniform Digitally

  • Using our templates design your uniform in colour.  It is not necessary to supply designs for every item you are ordering.  We use the same artwork for all "tops" (jerseys, jackets, vests, skinsuit-tops) and all "bottoms" (shorts, bib shorts, tights, knickers, skinsuit-shorts). Your short sleeve jersey will look like your vest (just without sleeves) and your bib shorts will look like your bib knickers. We will need artwork for accessories but even some of these items can use the same design. For example, summer and winter gloves and tech and Euro caps can use the same basic artwork.
    • We accept Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and Macromedia files (sorry, no files that end with the .mac extension).
    • Use Pantone colors and supply us with the exact Pantone number for each color.
    • All artwork must be in vector format.
    • Convert all text to outlines or let us know all the font names.
    • Since we use digital sublimation printing, virtually any design is possible. Unlike traditional sublimation where one set of artwork is used for every size and garment, we prepare separate artwork for every garment and every size. That means the artwork will look great on an XS jersey and an XXXL jersey. It also means that your designs can cross seams. For example, sleeves to front panel and side panels to front panels. Our digital sublimation printers are also great for designs with photographs, fades and halftones.

    • For all "bottoms," only the side panels and back panels can be printed. For the main base color, you can choose from one of our 7 pre-dyed Lycra colors - royal blue, navy blue, red, green, orange, gray and black.  The Pantone numbers for each of these colors can be found on our short templates.  We recommend using the same Pantone numbers in the "tops" for an exact match. Still confused?

    • Upon receipt of your deposit you will be emailed a username and password.  Log in to the Champion System Control Panel to upload your design files.
    • You must upload artwork for all the items you wish to order. All "tops" (jerseys, jackets, vests, skinsuits) use the same artwork so if you have a jersey design we can use the same artwork for jackets and vests. It's not necessary to design each top garment - we'll do it for you. Same thing with "bottoms" (shorts, bib shorts, tights and knickers). However, if you are ordering gloves, socks, caps etc. you must provide us with the designs you want from the start. Approving your jersey design and then telling us "hey, I want gloves too" will only delay your order.

How To Design Your Uniform By Hand

  • Print out our templates and design your uniform in color using crayons, markers, colored pencils, etc. It is important that your artwork is as precise as possible. Be sure to show exact colors and logo placements.  Real simple - just let us know what colors and logos go where. Note: It is not necessary to supply designs for every item you are ordering.  We use the same artwork for all "tops" (jerseys, jackets, vests, skinsuit-tops) and all "bottoms" (shorts, bib shorts, tights, knickers, skinsuit-shorts).  Your short sleeve jersey will look like your vest (just without sleeves) and your bib shorts will look like your bib knickers. We will need artwork for accessories, but even some of these items can use the same design.  For example, summer and winter gloves and tech and Euro caps can use the same basic artwork.
  • All the logos that will appear on the uniform need to be very high quality. Ask your sponsors to send you an EPS file of their logo. Most companies have an EPS version of their logo. If they email it to you there's a good chance you won't be able to open it.  Don't worry, we can - just send it over. If you cannot get EPS logos, we can accept high resolution JPG or TIFF files. Logos taken from websites are low resolution and will NOT WORK
    • If you only have a printed logo it needs to be "camera-ready." Camera-ready artwork is clean, crisp, black and white printouts that are outputted at 600+ dpi.  Faxes and business cards will NOT WORK.
    • We need to know the exact colors you want to use. The Pantone Matching System is the inudustry standard with
    hundreds and hundred of colors to choose from. Click herefor the Pantone color chart. We do not charge extra to use Pantone colors. The colors may vary depending on computer monitors so this only offers a rough way to choose colors. If absolute true colors are necessary, a Pantone ® Color Formula Book is recommended. These can be found in most art stores. You can also send us color swatches and we'll do the matching for you.
    • Since we use digital sublimation printing, virtually any design is possible. Unlike traditional sublimation, where one set of artwork is used for every size and garment, we prepare separate artwork for every garment and every size. That means the artwork will look great on an XS jersey and an XXXL jersey. It also means that your designs can cross seams. For example, sleeves to front panel and side panels to front panels. Our digital sublimation printers are also great for designs with photographs, fades and halftones.
    • Still have no idea what you want? We suggest you take a look at our jersey gallery to see samples of designs we have made for other teams. Perhaps you see a design you like, but just want to tweak it a bit or change the colors around. Not a problem - we have the design on file. If you saw a cool pro team jersey you would like to base your design on that's fine too - just send us a picture!
    • Upon receipt of your deposit, you will be emailed a username and password. Log in to the Champion System Control Panel to upload your design files. We suggest you scan your hand-sketch and upload the file along with all your logos.
    • You must upload artwork for all the items you wish to order.  All "tops" (jerseys, jackets, vests, skinsuits) use the same artwork, so if you have a jersey design we can use the same artwork for jackets and vests. It's not necessary to design each top garment - we'll do it for you. Same thing with "bottoms" (shorts, bib shorts, tights and knickers). However, if you are ordering gloves, socks, caps etc. you must provide us with the designs you want from the start. Approving your jersey design and then telling us "hey, I want gloves too" will only delay your order.

    • Lastly, we know you don't do this a living, so if you have any questions regarding design layout or any other part of the order process, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We will gladly give you all the suggestions, ideas and advice you need.
