I have a favorite photograph. Can you make it into a flip flop?

Certainly. Fully custom flip flops can use CMYK process or digital printing methods appropriate for photographs. In order to prevent fuzzy or unclear prints, the photograph or artwork must be a high-resolution JPEG, TIFF, AI or PSD file above 300 DPI. If you are unable to provide a high resolution photograph digital image meeting this specification, we cannot recommend printing a photograph onto your flip flops.

For digital printing of designs that are not photographs but have many colors and/or color gradients – like logos or artwork – we still suggest that you provide a hi-resolution digital image meeting the above requirements. Our design team can provide complimentary assistance in in digitizing/vectorizing these images. Occasionally, this process will increase the turnaround time, such as for complex design projects.

Can you add text or letters onto my flip flops?

Yes. But to ensure optimal readability, letters should be at least ¼ inch tall to ensure for screen printed designs, and ⅛ inch tall for full-color printed designs.

Can I make a pair of flip flops into a custom shape

Yes. Odd-shaped flip flops sure would catch people’s attention, and we completely support your vision! While there exist certain design shape and design limitations, and some added charges may apply, we’re more than happy to take a look at your odd-shaped idea, and see report back to you with a plan of action and personal price quote for your unique project. Let your creative specialist know what you’re thinking, and they’ll confirm whether or not we are able to accommodate your fully custom flip flops shape.

I have a favorite photograph. Can you use it in my design?

Certainly. Markers can use an offset printing method appropriate for photographs. In order to prevent fuzzy or unclear prints, we strongly recommend the photograph or artwork be a high-resolution JPEG, TIFF, AI or PSD file above 300 DPI.

For other colourful designs, our design team can provide complimentary assistance in digitizing/vectorizing these images. Occasionally this process will add to your turnaround time.

Can I get a digital copy of the design?

Yes. After every free design consultation, we will send you a clear digital copy of the design. If it’s not perfect, let us know and we won’t rest until it is. When you’re happy with it, we’ll send your approved design to the factory for production.

Designs will be sent 1 to 2 business days after your payment is confirmed. Designs can also be sent before payment, when requested.

Can I make any shape I want?

You most certainly can.

Can I make any shape I want?

Our collection lines are more versatile than you’d expect — just ask your creative specialist and you might be surprised at what we can do.

Are there limitations to the number of colors I can have?

Not at all. We can do an unlimited amount of colors but for every nine colors of thread your product cost and speed are doubled. For most of our customers’ designs, though, nine colors is more than enough. You might also be interested in a printed patch if you’re really wanting something exceptionally colorful.

What is “offsetting?”

Offsetting is a technique in design where an image appears to have a shadow by duplicating the image and placing it behind the design and off to the side at an angle.

Can I do different colors of the same item and still get the order for the same price?

Most often, yes. It depends on what the colors and styles you’d like to switch out are — but your creative specialist will always configure order in the most economical way possible.

How many colors can my design have?

Screen printed apron designs can receive a maximum 10 colors for traditional spot screen printing (solid colors only, no gradients).

Embroidery can accommodate up to nine colors per location, but we advise no more than five for clarity’s sake.

Both screen printing and embroidery can be applied to a single apron. Simple but brilliant, like chocolate-dipped bacon.

Full-color printing is the only option that allows for unlimited colors and color gradients. Dye sublimation full-color printing is available at low quantities in only one style/SKU, but we offer cut and sew aprons, too — although generally requiring higher quantities before they become an economical choice with the highest level of customization.

Can I get screenprinting or heat transfers on my beanies?

No. The reason we don’t allow this option is that screenprinting or heat-transfers on knit fabric looks terrible the moment you start to wear it, cracking as the fabric underneath it moves and stretches. The designs you here are either patches that can move and stretch along with the fabric or designs actually knit into the fabric. It’s indeed possible, as some of our competitors will say – but you won’t want to wear it more than once.

Can my flip-flops have layers?

Sure, we’re able to make “layered” style flip-flops with different-colored foam levels making up the sole. This requires a minimum order quantity of five hundred (500), but within this number we can have up to five multiple sizes to accommodate more feet.

Can I submit finished artwork?

Absolutely! While we have a team of world-class designers who can create incredible images from scratch, we know we also have incredibly creative customers. If you don’t need design help, you can submit completed artwork files to be prepped for production.

What if I’m not happy with the design?

We are happy to make as many edits as necessary to make your design perfect.. You’ll be able to communicate with our team throughout the process via a dedicated customer dashboard that lets you make note directly on your design. Please note that a prolonged editing process will add time to your overall production timeline, so clear descriptions are a must for minimizing the number of edits required. You can even upload images or sketches to help show us your idea.

What do I need to submit to get my order started?

You’ll need to fill out the quote form above so we get the general details of your order. You can also submit artwork, sketches, reference images, et cetera, so we get a better idea of your vision. If there’s any additional information we need, your representative will reach out to you.

What kind of mockups can I expect?

You’ll receive a digital mockup once your design has been created by our team. After you approve your mockup, we’ll produce a physical sample of the ITEM and send you images from the factory. Additionally, you can request to receive a physical sample in the mail – note that this will add time to your overall production timeline as well as a shipping fee.

General+
How long does the ordering process take?

Each order’s turnaround time depends on your design and its complexity. During the design and manufacturing processes, your representative will be able to provide you with delivery and shipment estimates — you’ll also receive email updates as your order makes it way through our system.

We’re often capable of meeting tight deadlines if we know about them as soon as possible. If you have a specific deadline, please tell your representative right away so we can work with you to beat it.

Do you have more customization options that aren’t listed here?

Yes, we do. Through our vast network of factories, we have access to literally hundreds of special options. Tell your representative what you’re envisioning and they’ll be happy to suggest options that suit your design.

Pricing+
How do you price your flip-flops?

We put a lot of thought into our prices. Some of the more important variables are quantity, stylistic add-ons, size and “surface area” of the modifications  — i.e.,  how much printing, or other graphically-related work does the project require? The person most equipped to give you a price for your product is your sale representative or our useful DIY — both can give you a detailed analysis of your quote and what things featured into our per-item price. Happy hunting!

Product usage+
Will my design rub-off or crack from normal use?

This is certainly a valid concern. In general, on-strap designs are the least worrisome because they avoid the heavy skin-to-material friction from normal use due to their location on the outside, not in direct contact with your skin.

Longevity of your on-sole design is another matter. “Quick-print” basic flip flops with screen printed soles use quick-dry ink in order to optimize the production time, so they are most susceptible to the forces of friction. If long-lasting design is important to you, then we can not recommend you purchase “quick-print” basic flip flops that incorporate screen printing on the sole.

For long-lasting printed designs on the soles of your flip flops, we strongly recommend you purchase a fully custom style. We choose much higher-quality inks for both screen printing and CMYK printing, which under normal use conditions usually last for 1 or 2 years before the design is noticeably run-down. Our digital printing method is the most resilient, friction-resistant printing method, because a protective layer of clear PVC coating is applied atop your entire designs surface, for the greatest level of friction-protection available in the flip flops industry.

Sales and Customer Service+
What happens when I request a quote?

We get back to you within twenty-four hours and usually much faster with a quote for your order and the email address of your personal assistant for any questions you might have. Your project could be under way within a day.

What should I know before placing an order with your company?

Sometimes we work with customers who have an exact idea of what they want; others have only begun the creative process. You don’t need to know “anything” before you work with us; we help you through the creative process and production process to whatever extent you need. That’s our job.

We’d also love you to know that, working with us, you’re working with a company that handles products for global fashion brands — and in fact, there’s a good chance you might have run into one of our goods and not known it. Check us out and send us an email or a quote request — you’ll find that we’re upfront, informative and excited about any creative projects.

Sourcing+
What are your flip flops made of?

Let’s break this answer up into 2 parts (just like our competitor’s flip-flops tend to do): the sole and the strap.

Depending on your preference, we can make your flip flop soles out of one of 3 quality materials. Standard EVA is most common flip flops material — the lightest and the most budget-friendly, too. For added softness and flexibility, Ultra-Flex EVA is a great choice. Or for the most durable flip-flops with the best traction and a heavier feel, we also offer Rubber flip flops.

Similarly, you have your choice of flip flop strap. Standard PVC rubber is a budget-friendly standard option, but we also offer strap variations, like woven polyester fabric band and fabric-lined EVA material.
