To assure product consistency across an order of many participants, it is always best practice to manufacture them all together and at the same time. To achieve this, the preferable way is to order everything in one order, however, separate orders are also OK but only if the process is followed:
This strategy allows us to both know which orders are tied together and know when all orders have been submitted allowing us to to submit all orders together.
DO YOU HAVE A STORE-FRONT?
Yes! Our store-front is in Central America. Otherwise we are an online only shop.
WHAT IF I HAVE GENERAL QUESTIONS BEFORE MAKING MY CUSTOM ORDER?
We understand that ordering custom apparel can be a complex matter. Please visit our General Help page for assistance with complex ordering questions such as navigating the site, sizing, and color selections. Otherwise, please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have.
MY EVENT IS COMING UP QUICK, CAN I RUSH MY ORDER?
Depending on how soon your need is, we do have an expedited service available. Most of the time we can accommodate quick delivery turnaround when needed.
I NEED A SPECIFIC EMBROIDERY COLOR. DO I HAVE TO PURCHASE AN EMBROIDERY BOOKLET?
If you need an embroidery color to match a specific color you have already chosen for your wedding or event, we strongly recommend purchasing our Marathon embroidery sample booklet. This booklet contains samples of all 300+ colors in the actual thread that will be used to make our custom designs. Click here for additional information.
You can also view the colors online. However, the shades can often vary depending on the monitor you are viewing it from. The online swatch matching system is for a basic reference of color, not for exact accuracy. If used and relied upon for an exact match, it is done so at your own risk. If this method is used WeddingTropics cannot be responsible if the color received does not match properly. If the embroidery color received is not what you expected, our standard “custom order” return/exchange policy will still apply.
WHAT ARE THE WASH AND CARE INSTRUCTIONS?
We always recommend dry-cleaning, particularly on the multi-color embroidered shirts and contrast color shirts, but also on plain shirts. To keep your 100% linen garments looking new, we always recommend dry-cleaning as it will prevent against standard fabric breakdown resulting in loss of luster and shrinkage.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
We accept all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and PayPal payments.
WHY IS MY CREDIT CARD PAYMENT NOT WORKING?
If your credit card is not being accepted by our system, it is generally because either a mistake was made while typing in the info, or the “Billing Address” indicated on your order does not match that on your credit card statement or records. Please verify for correct info and try again.
If several unsuccessful charges are made, your credit card company may place a block on your card. If you experience this, please contact our customer service department first so that we may also look into the issue. Keep in mind that some credit card companies place a block on online purchases over a certain amount. If this is the case, you may need to contact your credit card company.
DO YOU HAVE A CATALOG?
At this time we do not have a catalog that we can send, but all of our items are available online and updated on a regular basis.
CUSTOMER SERVICE & FEEDBACK
We care about what our customers think and what they are saying, therefore customer service is our number one priority. We not only greatly value our customer satisfaction and appreciation, but also understand that a happy customer promotes a return customer and spreads the word about us.
If you are happy with our quality, services, and products, please tell others. If you are dissatisfied, PLEASE tell us. Ultimately it is you that we work for, therefore we highly value your Comments and suggestions on how we can better provide our service to you.

ARE YOUR STANDARD SIZES AMERICAN SIZES?
Our “Standard Size” run fairly true to size for the American market. However, since not all designers and brands run the same, we would suggest measuring each person and matching to the size chart to ensure the proper size is ordered. Our size charts can be viewed by clicking the little blue information button at the size select dropdown from within the product.
SELECTING THE “TAILORED FIT” OPTION
Tailored fit is our made to measure option, meaning that we use the specific measurements provided by you. We suggest carefully measuring each person to ensure the proper fit is achieved. We have provided a video which can be viewed by clicking the little blue information button within the tailored sizing option. Follow the video directions carefully. Optionally, a downloadable/ printable measurement instructions pdf is linked from the video footer. These measurements can be taken easily at home with the assistance of another person or optionally a tailor can be used to obtain the measurements. If a tailor is used, we suggest printing out our measurement instructions, as the tailor may not be accustomed to our measuring style. We often emphasize (probably over emphasize) the importance of obtaining accurate measurements.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MY MEASUREMENTS AND THE ONES OF MY FINISHED PRODUCT? To produce your Custom Made shirt, a specific percentage is added to certain measurements provided to ensure a good fit. The neck, shirt height, and sleeve length measurements will be used as is. The chest, belly, hip, and shoulder measurements will have room added for comfort and correct fit. Our “Relaxed” fit has a slightly larger percentage added as opposed to our “Fitted” style.
