***We understand that deployment homecomings can be challenging for planning. If you are needing a rush order because of a short notice for homecoming, please convo me for availability on rush orders BEFORE placing your order! ***

ATTENTION FRG LEADERS: Are you interested in doing a group order for your unit's homecoming? Message me details on discounted FRG group orders!

The Details:

Since it is not possible to list every customization option in our listing photos, photos shown are examples of the finished design ONLY. Your actual item will be created with the information provided at check-out for names, birthday, or initials (when applicable).

Please be sure you include all information requested for completing your order. Orders without personalization requests will be completed without personalization; as stated in the item details. As items are made for you, returns/exchanges are not accepted and refunds are not issued.

Shirt blanks are a boutique brand and so vary from traditional store brands. Please refer to the sizing chart for measurements and order accordingly. I use KAVIO! brand blanks for my infant, toddler, and youth sizes and GILDAN BRAND for adult sizes. Please refer to the sizing charts in the listing photos for sizing details. Refunds and/or Exchanges will not be made for ordering an incorrect size.

Although the shirt in a listing sample photograph may be shown in another color, the listing price included shirt colors are WHITE, GREY, or BLACK.
If you are interested in upgrading to a colored shirt, please convo me for upgrade options and fees.

If a shirt size and/or style is sold out, Pretty Penguin Stitches reserves the option to substitute with a similar style shirt and/or another brand with comparable size measurements.

Fabric placement may vary from that shown in the listing photo, these variations add to the uniqueness of each custom garment. In the event that a fabric shown in the photo is out of stock and/or no longer available, Pretty Penguin Stitches reserves the options to substitute with another fabric of similar color, texture and/or design.

Colors may vary between the actual fabric colors and those displayed on your screen of a garment. This is due to photograph lighting and differences in computer monitor resolutions.

Fabric Designs/Colors

Fabric patterns in your final product may vary from those used in the original listing should this happen. (Ex. chevron fabric is out of stock; polka dot of similar colors may be substituted.) I do try to keep them similar, but it is not always possible.

If you want a certain pattern used or do not want a certain pattern used, please specify that in the "Notes to Seller" box during checkout.

Custom color requests are also available; however, I can not guarantee the same pattern in every color. (i.e. sample shows Pink Chevron, but blue is requested. Blue may be done in polka dot or other pattern.)
