Are you in charge of ordering custom t-shirts or custom apparel for a group or team? CreateMyTee Group Ordering makes your job incredibly easy by allowing group members to enter their own selections and, optionally, pay for their own portion of the order.
All you have to do is work one-on-one with a CreateMyTee professional artist to create your t-shirt or apparel design. Visit the CreateMyTee Design Gallery to find design inspiration for your group!
Finally, invite friends, teammates or co-workers to join your order via a simple link to CreateMyTee.com. When everybody has entered their information, send your order to print!
Simply place a normal order as described in How Group Ordering Works (to your left). Once you approve your order's artwork, you'll have the option to turn the order into a Group Order and invite others to participate.
The Order Organizer is the person who submits the initial CreateMyTee.com order, approves the artwork, sets the Group Ordering deadline and invites others to participate. After the ordering deadline passes, the Order Organizer is responsible for finalizing the order and sending it to print.
Once you've finished the Group Order setup process, you'll be provided a link that people can visit to join your Group Order. Or you can send people to https://www.CreateMyTee.com/JoinOrder/ and provide them your Order # and Password (if you set one). From there, they can locate the order, then join by creating an account or signing into an existing account. As soon as they join, they'll have a link to enter their selections.
Anyone! Just provide them the Join Order Link and they may create a CreateMyTee.com account or sign into their existing account to join your order and enter their selections.
Yes! During Group Order setup, you may enter a password that participants must enter to join.
Yes! At anytime, visit My Account and click "Group Ordering" for your order. You can see the total, balance and a link to view the order for each participant. In addition there is a link to view the entire order breakdown by participant, which can be used during distribution of items.
Yes! At anytime, visit My Account and click "Group Ordering" for your order. There is a form allowing you to easily send a message to all participants. This is great for letting them know when the order has arrived and how to pick up their selections.
During Group Order setup, you'll select one of two pricing methods for each item in the order:
Yes! During Group Order setup, just select Custom Pricing for each item (as described "How are Group Order items priced?") and set the custom price higher than the expected per item price. After the order closes, we'll send you a check for the profit!
Yes! During Group Order setup, just select Custom Pricing for each item (as described "How are Group Order items priced?") and set the custom price lower than the expected per item price. Your participants will pay the price you set. When you check out, you'll pay the difference between the participant price and the actual price. This is great for schools or teams that can afford part of the cost of an order, but not the entire cost of the order.
During Group Order setup, you may select one of two payment methods:
CreateMyTee.com accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover and eCheck (Bank Account payment) on all orders, for both the Order Organizer and participants. Additionally, the Order Organizer has the option to request CreateMyTee Credit (see next question).
Yes! CreateMyTee understands some organizations prefer to pay via terms. During checkout or order finalization, the Order Organizer may request to pay via CreateMyTee Credit. Once requested, we will review your information as quickly as possible and make a decision. If you are not approved, you will be required to pay for the order in full before we proceed any further. CreateMyTee Credit is NOT available to order participants, just the Order Organizer.
Free ground shipping is included with each order. All shipments are shipped via UPS. You do, however, have the option to choose expedited shipping for an additional price. As the Order Organizer, you'll be responsible for paying any expedited shipping costs.
The turnaround time for each order varies. This is because orders consist of two phases: 1) Shirt Design, and 2) Printing.
The SHIRT DESIGN phase occurs first and the duration depends on how many times you go back and forth with your artist to ensure that the final design is PERFECT. On average, however, the design phase takes between 24 and 48 hours (and our fastest recorded order only took 17 minutes from order process to design approval for printing!!).
The PRINTING phase does allow for us to provide exact turnarounds. After your Group Order deadline passes and you check out, the turnaround time will be set based on the quantity of pieces ordered. The chart below indicates the number of days for printing. Transit time is additional and varies based on the Ship To address.
|6-100||3 Business Days|
|101-250||4 Business Days|
|251-750||5 Business Days|
|750 +||Call for more info|
National Holidays: CreateMyTee does not ship on the following national holidays:
Standard shipping typically takes between 3-5 days. Sometimes it is only a day or two depending on the distance from our shop to your door. See the UPS time-in-transit calculator for an exact answer, using 48108 as the "shipping from" zip code.
We treat every order as a rush order. Thus, we do not offer rush orders. We can however expedite shipping for an additional cost.
Yes, but via ground only. It is our experience that due to Customs clearance ground shipments are just as fast as Overnight shipments.
No, someday though. We do ship to Canada, however. See above answer.
