Frequently Asked Questions
Who is Epolos.com and why should I order from them?
Hello, my name is Brian and I am the owner of Epolos.com. We are an 20 year old, family owned and operated business located outside of Austin, TX.
We specialize in logo embroidery and work with some of the largest and some of the smallest companies and organizations around the world. When working directly with the owner of a smaller company, every customer is treated as if they are our only customer and every customer, no matter the size, is important to us.
Our team leaders have been with us for a minimum of 10 years and take great pride to ensure our final products are of the highest quality.
We are always happy to assist with whatever questions you have, so if you have questions that are not answered below, please feel free to email or call and I will personally work with you to ensure you have the answers to all your questions.
Thank you for visiting our website and the opportunity to earn your business.
How does the ordering process work?
Once you have added all the items in your shopping cart, click the “shopping cart/checkout” button and review your shopping cart. Below the total quote amount you will see a button titled (Upload artwork here).
Upload your logo/artwork here. Click “continue” and go through the checkout process. Once we have your order, we will send a digitized proof to you for approval and feedback regarding the proper size and colors you’d like.
Once we have your final approval after any changes are made we will release your order into the production schedule.
What kind of artwork do you accept?
We can work with almost any type of file format you have, although we try to work with files that have 150dpi resolution or better.
Some of the most popular formats are jpeg, bitmap, png, eps, PDF and word.
Where do I send my artwork?
You can either attach the artwork to your order by clicking on the button “Upload File” button in the shopping cart, or you can send it to me directly with instructions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What if I have special instructions or comments?
You can either call us directly (512-990-5646), email me personally at email@example.com, or type whatever comments you’d like in the comments box during checkout.
Do you keep our logo on file?
Yes, once we have digitized your logo, we will keep a copy of it here. If you order again in the future and you want the logo to be identical to previous orders, we won’t need to redo the logo, we can simply use the logo we have here, and that you approved on the previous orders. If any changes need to be made to the logo simply upload the new logo and we will work with you to get the new artwork approved.
Can I specify a specific PMS color?
Yes, we do work with PMS colors and can usually match any PMS color to an almost identical match with the thread colors we have here in stock. If there is a discrepancy, we will always notify you first to see if there is a substitute color that would work.
How fast will I get my order?
Your order usually ships within one week. Depending on where we ship and the shipping method used, delivery will occur a few days later. In total, most customers get their orders in about 7 business days.
How much is does shipping and handling cost?
Shipping is FREE for any order that meets the 12-piece minimum.
The only cost to consider is the price of the shirt. The first logo location (usually left chest) is included already. We keep it simple!
Can I use my own shipping account?
Yes we can certainly use your shipping account should you decide to go that direction.
What type of payments do you accept?
We accept Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
What are your set-up fees?
We do not charge set up fees, they are free. The only cost you need to consider is the cost of the shirt or other item. Everything else is already included so you don’t need to worry about any other additional costs. We keep it simple.
Can I see a sample?
Yes, prior to releasing your order into production we will send you a digitized proof of your logo on the shirt color you want.
This way you can see a true version of your logo and how it will look on whatever shirt color you choose. We will ask for your feedback and/or guidance on any changes you’d like to make. Once you approve the design we will start processing your order.
What is the cost to change thread color?
We do not charge for thread color changes. We keep it simple, just pay for the shirt and that’s it. If you have a black logo and you want black shirts, we can change the thread color to another color for those black shirts. No problem. If you have light color shirts and dark color shirts we can change thread colors so the logo will be highly visible on both light and dark colors. Again, there is no charge to do this for you.
What is the cost of artwork/digitizing?
Free. We only charge for the shirt or other item and everything else is included already. We can’t begin to do our jobs of embroidering your logo on shirts without first digitizing it. Yes it does take some time to do this, but we don’t believe that is a cost you should incur.
How many colors can I use in my logo?
All of our state of the art embroidery machines utilize the full 15 color heads and as such we can use up to 15 colors.
Do you have access to additional shirts other than what is on your site?
Yes, we have access to the largest apparel companies in the United States and we have contracts to purchase anything and everything they sell.
We list the most popular 200-300 items on our website, however, if you need something you don’t see, send us a note or give us a call and we can almost always get the shirt you need.
Two of the largest and most popular apparel suppliers in the US can be found on the listed links below.

What is your minimum shirt order?
Our minimum order is 12 pieces. These can ALL be completely different mix and match styles, colors, sizes, etc, just 12 in total. Without charging any setup fees, digitizing fees, artwork fees, thread color change fees, shipping, etc, we ask that our customers buy 12 “things.” (Hats, being round and requiring a completely unique setup different from shirts that lay flat, the minimum order for hats is also 12 pieces.)
A few other companies may embroider 4 shirts for you. However, you will find after you pay for the $50 set up fee, the $30 artwork fee and $20 in shipping, you are already up to $100 before you buy a single shirt.
We don’t think you should get stuck with that bill. So, we ask that you buy 12 and if you don’t need 12, maybe you can get some items for your spouse, your children, or as giveaways for your best customers. It never hurts to get your brand recognized with additional pieces.
What is your 100% satisfaction guarantee?
