Frequently Asked QuestionsThese are answers to some frequently asked questions about our ties, scarves, and Hawaiian shirts. We can design anything your imagination can envision!
How long is the entire process from start to finish?
From the date of final artwork approval, ties and scarves take about 4-5 weeks to be received, and Hawaiian shirts take 5-6 weeks. Artwork approval can take one week to a few weeks, depending on your needs and the amount of revisions. Requesting a sample of your order also adds another 2-3 weeks onto the total turnaround time.
Please contact us if you need a faster turnaround time, and we will discuss your options.
Who designs my custom neckwear?
Artwork is included with your ties, scarves, and Hawaiian shirt purchases at no extra charge. Just send us your logo, preferred colors, and design ideas, and our artists will create some fresh designs just for you. We can also provide templates for your art department as well.
Can you match colors?
We utilize the Pantone color matching system (PMS) to track colors as accurately as possible. However, exact color is not guaranteed: the PMS colors are for printing ink on paper, but we are using dye on fabric.
What are your billing terms?
With approved credit, we will bill your company after delivery of the ties and scarves. Our terms are term 10 days.
Do you guarantee delivery by a specific date?
If we accept your order subject to delivery by a specific date, then you have the option to reject the order if the delivery terms are not met.
I am a new customer. How many ties or scarves can I order?
For ties and scarves, our minimum order is generally 50 pieces. Please note that you can’t combine this number and make 25 ties and 25 scarves; these products require two very different processes to make. The absolute minimum we can do is 30 ties or 30 scarves, with a $3.00 surcharge per tie and a $5.00 surcharge per scarf. Learn more about SCARVES and TIES.
Hawaiian shirts have a 50 piece minimum. As we make these custom shirts from the fabric up, we cannot accomodate smaller orders.
What is “Corporate Textiles”?
Our incorporated name is “Corporate Textiles” and so invoices and such will be noted from that name. However, as our website is www.shop4ties.com, we use that name more frequently. You can call us whichever you prefer!
I want to make an order. What do you need?
We will ask you to send your logo in a high resolution (preferably .ai or .eps) file format. These are both vector art files which allows the artist to resize and make any necessary changes with out recreating the logo. If you don’t have either of these, you can send us a high resolution jpeg and we’ll go from there. Tell us if you have any particular colors you’d like (Pantone colors preferred) and your design ideas, and our artists will give you a few options to start with. We’ll revise from there until we have your perfect tie or scarf design.
4 Easy Steps: Order Custom Ties, Bow ties, or Scarves
After your initial call or email showing interest, we’ll send you samples of our custom ties and scarves so that you can both see and touch the quality of our products. Samples are the best way to be able to see the fine workmanship first hand.

Before we manufacture your neckwear, we want to be sure you’re completely happy with the design, so we submit final artwork for your approval. Our artist’s rendering is an accurate digital representation of what your neckwear will look like. Your satisfaction is key to our success!
Four to five weeks after you approve the production proof, your order will be delivered. Our normal lead time from artist’s concept to finished neckwear is eight to ten weeks. However, we can usually accommodate your special time limits, just contact us!
