      *We are unable to accept returns for items which are advertised to be closeout.
      *We are unable to accept returns for any garment which is advertised to require decoration.  These brands are Carhartt, Eddie Bauer, New Era, Nike, Ogio, The North Face & Under Armour.

      Items returned without the RA# listed on the package or without prior approval/return authorization will not be eligible for return and will be refused.
    • Is there a restock fee if I return my purchase?
    • A 20% restock fee is charged on returned orders which shipped with complimentary shipping and bulk/volume purchases. Additionally, this restock fee applies to orders placed for products which require decoration and are subsequently cancelled because no decoration is wanted.  This fee primarily covers the cost UPS charged us to ship your initial purchase but is also used to offset credit card fees, packaging costs, labor costs, return processing, and additional costs associated with your unwanted order.

      As a corporate apparel retailer, the majority of our customers purchase in bulk. For that reason our products are priced accordingly (heavily discounted). This differs from a traditional retailer who further marks up their products to allow for "free" returns.
    • Are shipping charges refundable?
    • Shipping charges are non-refundable. We take the money you pay us for shipping and provide that to the carrier for the delivery of your order.
    • My item arrived damaged/defective, what do I do?
    • Please contact us immediately upon delivery to report damaged/defective/short shipment. Damaged/defective items will be replaced (we will proceed with a refund ONLY when a replacement is not available). We may require a photo of the damage/defect before replacement. UPS requires original packaging be kept in cases of damage or will be ineligible for replacement. Colors can display differently depending on monitor settings and dye lots. Color variations is not considered a defect.
    • My package was returned to Big Top Shirt Shop by UPS, what do I do?
    • Items refused OR returned undeliverable due to an incorrect/incomplete address provided will be refunded less shipping charges and will be subject to a 20% restock fee upon return to Big Top Shirt Shop. We recommend checking your order for accuracy prior to purchase.

Embroidery FAQ’s
    • Are there minimums for embroidery?
    • We have a 12 piece minimum for embroidery.
    • What is the cost for embroidery?
    • Standard embroidery (left chest/hat front) is $4 per garment.  There are no set-up charges or any additional costs.  Logos with more than normal stitch counts (Greater than 5k) will incur additional costs.
    • How do I add embroidery to my order?
    • From the shopping cart, simply click the “Add Embroidery” button and select your quantity. 
    • How long does it take to have items embroidered?
    • Production time for embroidery is approximately 10 business days from the date of purchase AND receipt of useable artwork.  This can vary slightly depending on the number of revisions required to your artwork to achieve acceptable results. Additional time may be necessary during peak seasons.  We make no guarantees to production time, which can vary based on job specific factors.  Production time does not include transit time, which varies based on final delivery location.
    • What artwork files are accepted?
    • We prefer vector artwork for decoration. Suggested file types are .ai/.eps/etc. The higher quality artwork provided will result in higher quality embroidery. We are generally unable to accept low resolution files types such as .jpg/.gif/.bmp/etc. We do not offer graphic design services.

      Vector art is created using a software program that uses mathematic equations and geometric primitives (points, lines, and shapes) to create art that is clean, camera ready, and can be scaled infinitely, without any loss of quality or fidelity. Click here for the wikipedia article on vector art.

    • Can I change/cancel my order for embroidery?
    • All Sales Involving Embroidery Are Final. Upon receipt of your order we immediately ship your items to our embroidery facility and begin the labor intensive process of digitizing your logo (converting artwork to stitches). For those reasons we are unable to cancel/change a decoration order once a purchase is complete. If you have questions about your artwork or the decoration process please contact us in advance of placing an order.
