12. My local has designed a logo that they’d like to include in the shirt embroidery options. How can we make the logo available to the members?
Keep in mind that any NATCA local that wishes to use the NATCA logo or the name in another font or format must receive prior approval from the National Office. All items bearing the NATCA name or logo shall be union made or, at a minimum, American made.
Submit your designs to your RVP first for approval. Once approved, simply e-mail a jpeg file to email@example.com or call 800-266-0895 for assistance. The file is then digitized or punched in for embroidery. Note there is a $45 setup charge, which includes one stitch out. Assuming the National Office approves the design, there are no trademark infringements, and there are no copyright problems, we will upload it with the current list of available logos at store.natca.org. Please note that once a stitch out is completed and you decide not to move forward with the process, a vendor inconvenience fee of $25 will be applied.
13. My local currently does not have a logo. How can we get one designed and added to the store site?
Simply send in your concept or thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org. Our embroiderer will create the logo from scratch. You then submit the final logo to your RVP or NATCA Store will submit the design to the National Office for approval on your behalf. Depending on the complexity of the design, there is an artwork fee of $75 and this includes two revisions. Additional revisions will be billed at $50 per hour. Once the logo is approved, the next step is the embroidery (note the $45 embroidery set up charge). Assuming there are no trademark infringements and that there are no copyright problems, we will include it in the current list of available logos at store.natca.org. All items bearing the NATCA name or logo shall be union made or, at a minimum, American made.
14. What is the process of setting up a design on t-shirts?
T-shirt designs is silk-screened, and the charge is $20 per color, depending on the design. If you plan to have the design on a variety of t-shirt background colors or if your logo has more than one color, the charge is per screen/layer per color. If you need assistance adding text or graphic to the existing design, note there is a $50 artwork fee for the revision.
Advanced National Office approval is required for the use of the NATCA name or logo in another font or format. You may submit your design to your RVP for approval or NATCA Store can submit the final design to the National Office on your behalf.
You can also order t-shirts at NATCA store but at a 24-piece minimum. Once we have an idea on the t-shirt colors, size and quantity, we will provide full pricing later. All items bearing the NATCA name or logo shall be union made or, at a minimum, American made.
15. What type of file can we send for our custom logo?
Our union embroiderer prefers vector graphics like .eps or .svg but jpeg file format will do. Be advised vector graphics designs won’t be exactly the way it is received. It would be very pixelated, and our embroiderer won’t be able to use the file for reference. It’s like attempting to duplicate an excel spreadsheet on to a word doc. What can be done is to duplicate it to the best way possible. If you have a preference on the color of the design, please provide the PMS color #’s before they can print, otherwise they will match the colors as best as they can. The more detail the description, we can keep the revisions to a minimum. We also take images from drawings, and we will redraw the best way in what is envisioned. There might be a redrawn fee, but it is negotiable.
16. I have an idea for a product that I think would sell. What should I do?
