Q: Do you embroider or sew?
A: Sorry no, we do not offer embroidery/sewing services. We only show embroidery items on our website to give our customers ideas. Check your local yellow pages or do a Google search for a local embroiderer. I like to recommend EmbroidMe.

Q: What does it mean when I choose "assorted"?

A: You Choose: If you choose assorted, but would like to pick your colors, you may. In the comments section, just list the colors and quantities you want. Make sure your selection equals the amount you actually ordered. Be specific. Do not just say orange. Is it sky blue, royal blue or neon blue?

A: We Choose: If you choose assorted as your color option, it simply means that we will pick the colors for you. If you specify 1, we will give you a color assuming you need a sample and the color doesn't matter. If you choose (6) and there is 3 colors listed, then you will receive 2 of each color. Obviously, you will only get the colors that are available at the time you order. So if a color is out of stock, you will not receive that color as one of your options.

Q: Do the neoprene insulator / coolers come flat?
A: Yes, they come flat and they are un-sewn. You will need to stitch up the sides when you have finished embellishing them.
