How To Order

Choose a Design

Choose embroidery or screenprinting then you can select artwork from our gallery of designs. There is no art charge when you choose one of our design templates. Blue Chip will customize the text, ink colors, image size and placement for you. In most cases you can also add a mascot from our Mascot Library. When we have completed your artwork, we will email or fax a proof for you to review. Rest assured, we will not do anything until we have your approval. As soon as you approve the artwork, we will process the order. The order is guaranteed to ship within 7 business days after final artwork is approved.

Have your own artwork? No problem. If you have an idea for art but need some help in the creation department, Blue Chip can create something just for you! Just email or fax a drawing, sketch, picture, description or digital file of your idea. We will contact you in 24 hours with a custom art quote. Custom artwork requires a credit card before beginning and is billed at $40 per hour. For more information regarding new designs and digital file requirements, please see our Art Guidelines.


Choose a Garment

Choose from our wide selection of apparel and bags. Some items are only available for screenprinting and some are only available for embroidery. If you choose screenprinting as your application, only items which can be screenprinted will appear and vice versa. If you know what type of garment you want, you can always start from our Garments page and then choose your design.



This is where the fun starts. Change your garment. Change the color of your garment. Change the ink or thread colors in the design. The possibilities are endless. Should your design be yellow and blue, or blue and yellow? You can see how the design looks with your colors in real time. No more guessing. You can also customize any of the text that appears on the design. Since automatic text changes would not give you an accurate reflection, we only list your text changes in the boxes. Not to worry though. We will send you a proof so you can see how it looks before we get started.

If you don't want a design on the front, just choose the text option and and you can write whatever you want. Then choose a color and font from the dropdown menus. For the back you can do the same thing and you can also decorate the sleeves with text. If you're not decorating clothing, other options will appear.

Dont forget to check out the distress options! Some screenprinting designs allow you to add distress to your design. If a design already has distress, you cannot distress it any more.

Make sure to look at the placement options before you continue.


Choose Sizes

Next, you'll choose the size(s) and quantities for your items. Make sure you meet the minimum order requirements. Actually, you cannot go any further until you do. This is also where you can see your total cost and cost per item. We also let you know when the next price break will be. Sometimes you can save money by ordering more! If you make a mistake, you can always change your order. When you're finished, add the items to your cart and you're almost done.
