Ordering Imprinted Spirit Items

How to Order Custom Imprinted Spirit Items:

1. Choose your style, color and quantity.

2. If you have your own artwork, e-mail your artwork to art@cheerleading.com. We recommend limiting your artwork to one-color for the best look. If you would like us to set up your artwork, please fax a drawing to us at 800-411-0842. Please be sure to include your name, address, telephone number with area code and fax number with area code and e-mail address. **Additional artwork fees may apply if you are providing your own artwork. Please see our artwork guidelines below.** We will contact you before continuing with your order to advise of any additional artwork setup or cleanup fees.
There is an additional $50.00 die charge/setup fee per color, per side for all imprinted items. This covers the cost of setting up the die cast for printing. The setup fee does not apply for reorders. For example: if you have printing on two sides, there would be two die charges.
