Specifications and Requirements for

Contract Decorator

Updated August 25, 2022

What is contract decorator pricing?  We can provide large discounts to customers looking to wholesale our products.  These customer have been vetted and qualified by us directly as noncompeting, wholesale garment embellishment providers, and are using our services for that purpose.  This pricing is only available to those customers, exclusively.

Who can use our contract decorator pricing?  In some case, we may require a minimum commitment contract from your company, but typically, either party may terminate the contract at any time. All customers, however, are required to sign a purchase and usage statement specifying that any decorated items are meant for direct resale.

What are the project requirements to be considered contract?  Each project must meet the following guideline in order to receive contract pricing. Typically, decorators provide their own garments for decoration. These garments must meet our project guidelines and limitations as follows:
