Our Process

PTS process is built on the stability of owning our own production. Being factory direct
eliminates the confusion, higher pricing, and unreliable nature of working with a middle man.

An order Is fully placed when 3 things occur:

1.Artwork is Approved

2.Sizes and Numbers Are Submitted on PTS production forms

3.Production Deposit is in place.

Below is a detailed breakdown of how we will get there and options you have to save time and money!

1.Team makes a $150 refundable art deposit.

2.Next we introduce you to a PTS Art Coordinator. Their focus is to take you through the art process to get your designs to your approval and ready for production. This typically takes 0-3 revisions and art is approved. Submit your art request detailing the custom look you would like. You can choose from our library of designs or submit your own. The PTS Art Coordinator works with you through the art process to get your designs to your approval and ready. After that, the order is submitted and changes in art will affect delivery and will result in change fees.

3.Then the team will send in sizes / numbers. A PTS provided order spreadsheet will be provided to ensure accurate and efficient production.

Early Bird Orders:
Not required to send in sizes / numbers at this point (unless you want to). Instead the team will pay a small deposit per player (Goes toward your Production Deposit) to hold production space and ensure lowest price even if ordering during busy season. This is the Early Bird Deposit. Many times this is done months before the order is actually going to be placed. This allows partial production to begin upon artwork being approved.

4.At this point PTS will issue a production invoice based on the order submitted. A 60% deposit is made at that time to start production. Balances of $500.00 or less pay 100% to start full production.

To start an order before 60% payment is made, team can do a partial production deposit (Mini and FSS only – See 5A & B below). Please discuss this option with your representative.

Early Bird Orders:
Not required to pay production deposit until the end of step 5 or whenever you submit your sizes and numbers (whichever comes later).

5.After early bird/production deposit is made, and art is approved, PTS will begin the production process.

Early Bird Orders:
Teams that take advantage of Early Bird reservations move into production approvals as soon as art is approved. By accomplishing the production approvals in advance you will save time when you are ready to place your order.

The production process will include 2 rounds of production approvals to ensure design and color accuracy as follows:

A.Mini Photo For Approval: Team will receive photo of scaled down version of the uniform for approval to confirm layout, colors, etc. This is NOT to change artwork. It is to ensure that we execute the already approved design. Any changes in design will result in delays and additional charges!

B.Full Size Sample (FSS) Photo For Approval: After Mini is approved, PTS will send the team photos of 1 uniform at Full Size for approval. Once approved the order is ready to be moved into the Final Production Queue to be finished and ready for shipment.

Early Bird Orders:
Many times Early Bird order start months or weeks in advance of when the order will actually be placed. Once Early Bird production approvals are complete the process is in neutral until we receive sizes / numbers and production deposit. Your Early Bird Deposit is included and applied to the production deposit. Balances of $500 or less pay 100% when ordering.

At this point we’re in the final stages of production. During peak production times, an order can take 3-6 weeks to produce unless specified otherwise. Early Bird will allow you to knock 1-2 weeks off the timeline. Your exact timeline will be quoted by your representative. Many times PTS delivers faster than the quoted timelines and proper planning can cut down your timeline drastically when it’s time to place your order. Rushing is the least favorable route for us both! The key is to communicate and plan!

6.Once we are in final production, all previous deposits are put towards your balance and the final balance needs to be paid.

7.When production is complete, assuming final balance is cleared, items will ship to customer. Please expect 2-3 business days in transit assuming normal delivery operations.

We do have rush services for additional fees. Purchase orders are available to qualified accounts. Additional charges typically apply on purchase orders due to financing cost to PTS.
