CLICK EACH ITEM BELOW FOR MORE INFO
Our pricing is based on the cost of the product ordered and the embellishment(s) required, thus the prices can vary from season to season. We make every effort to buy product in bulk and at a discount but we are also bound by the pricing of our valued suppliers. Any customer quote given by Native Sons will be honored for 30 days.

Custom Order (Native Sons procures garments) : 48 PC MINIMUM required per design and print location
Customer Provided Goods (Customer provides garments) : 72 PC MINIMUM per design and print location
Custom Embroidery Order: 12 PCS of one type garment /cannot mix hats and shirts to meet minimum
Customer Provided Goods: 24 PCS of one type garment/ cannot mix hats and shirts to meet minimum
Additional charges may be added to CPG orders for counting, sorting and verifying the product received by Native Sons. Your sales rep will inspect goods upon placement of order and alert you of any additional fees.
Unless you have approved terms we require a 50% deposit to initiate an order. Please take this into consideration on time sensitive orders, as we cannot start the order process until we receive a deposit. The remaining 50% is due prior to UPS shipment or at time of pick up. You will be called or emailed when order is complete and informed of the balance owed. All payments can be processed by phone, in person, or online.
CANCELLATION OF ORDERS
Cancellation of orders prior to printing can result in a 15% restocking fee to be deducted from the deposit. This fee is charged by our suppliers to return blank garments. If shirts have already been printed and customized, cancellations are not accepted as we cannot resell or remove the embellishment. Native Sons reserves the right to liquidate any customized orders that are cancelled or have not been paid for within 90 days. Customized product that is not picked up by the customer within 90 days of completion of order is also subject to liquidation at our discretion.
A great tee shirt starts with a great idea and then requires a talented artist to put that idea “on paper” or, in our case, ”on cotton”. Native Sons has one of the most creative design teams in the country and can turn your idea into a unique customized tee shirt. Depending on the complexity and scope of design allow 7-14 business days for art development.
Once the concept is agreed upon we then have to make the design “screen printable” by separating all of the colors in the design and creating the screen or “stencil” for each respective color. Thus your art charge is relative to the complexity of the conceptual design and then the number of colors in the design that must be mechanically separated.
CUSTOMER PROVIDED ARTWORK
If you or your company already has artwork for your tee shirt order we must still make it “screen printable”. Having professionally created art is great and expedites the creative process. However, we still need the art provided with the following in mind. If you have any questions about art ask to speak to one of our sales rep or have your artist reach out to our art department (email@example.com).
ILLUSTRATOR & VECTOR ART
All artwork will be sent digitally for approval on a conceptual design sheet that shows the shirt color, number of colors in design, size, approximate design placement and a rendering of the design.
Screen charges are commonplace in the printing industry. These are the “stencils” we require to print the shirt and are very similar to “plate” or “dye” charges. For every color required in your design there is a corresponding screen made to print that color. Screen fees are separate from art fees but are also one-time fees. Screens are non transferable but if a customer has paid for all art and screen charges we will provide the art files and separations (films) upon request.
Native Sons uses plastisol ink for most of our printing needs but we also have a variety of specialty inks and applications that can enhance your design. We can also custom mix specific Pantone colors for your design for an additional fee. If you desire water-based, puff, high density, foils, glitter, or soft hand discharge inks please discuss with your sales rep to see if the inks will work with your design and if any additional charges are required.
RELABELING & TAG PRINTING
On orders over 144 pieces of the same style/same color garment we offer relabeling services. The charged fee includes removal of the existing tag and printing or heat-sealing new information in the neck area. It is important to understand the many variables involved in this custom process and keep in mind that creating your own “brand” of shirt can be a complicated, timely process.
Issues to consider when re-labeling:
UNIQUE PRINT LOCATIONS
We like challenges and printing logos in unique positions on the garment. However, printing areas of the garment that are not smooth or flat create registration and other quality issues. When printing over zippers, shoulder seams, neck and collar seams, and any other raised areas we cannot guarantee perfect and consistent prints.
If your concept includes all over printing or printing over seams your sales rep will discuss these issues, associated fees and what is considered an allowable print.
ACCEPTANCE OF COMPLETED ORDER
Upon receipt please check your order and notify us of any errors or quantity discrepancies within 5 business days of delivery. If there is a discrepancy we want to be able to correct it quickly to ensure your satisfaction. Native Sons is not responsible for any count discrepancies or damage claims after 5 business days.
DAMAGE CLAIMS & RE-PRINTING
Our goal is to ensure that each order leaving our facility is correct and that every customer is 100% satisfied. Please note the different policies below based on the type of order:
