For Visa, Mastercard, and Discover owners, flip your card over and look at the signature box. You should see either the entire 16-digit credit card number or just the last four digits followed by a special 3-digit code. This 3-digit code is your Card Security Code. View example here.
It is an important new Internet security feature that now appears on the back of most Visa, MasterCard, and Discover cards. This new code is a three or four-digit number which provides a cryptographic check of the information embossed on the card. The security code helps validate that the customer placing the online order actually has the credit card in his/her possession, and that the credit/debit card account is legitimate.
The security code is only printed the card and it is not contained in the magnetic stripe information nor does it appear on sales receipts or billing statements - you must have the card in your possession in order to use this code. Card Security Codes are not raised, so they are not scanned into standard credit card readers. In theory, these numbers are only visible to you. When you give your Card Security Code to a merchant, you assist the merchant in verifying that the order is being placed by you, the card holder.
If this code is printed on your card, then YES, you must enter the code. Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are now starting to require Internet stores to obtain the security code for all cards that have a code printed on them. In order for this transaction to be accepted and processed, you must enter this code if it's printed on your card. This is done for your protection.
There are many factors as to why prices show up different than the "As Low As" price advertized on our website. The "As Low As" price is the best price you can get on items. The best prices on items are for sizes Small-Xl, in the color white, in quantities of 36 pieces or more. Colored shirts may be more expensive and pricing for 2xl and larger may also be more expensive depending on the style. These prices will be shown after selecting a color from our color drop down.
Content Caching is another reason the price shown may be different from one page to another. We make every effort to ensure the information on this website is up to date however, some internet technology providers outside of our control may use technologies known as "content caching". Examples of "content caching is where your web browser (user agent) is set to: "store temporary internet files" or "make a page available off line". Additionally, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and networks may use "caching servers" which serve up copies of web pages they have stored rather than requesting the actual and most up to date content from our servers. Search Engines/Directories and Archive Technologies such as "web.archive.org" may also offer up cached copies of old web pages which are many years out of date. Google and other search engines also offer cached copies of pages which, again, may not reflect the current data and pricing information on our websites. We cannot be held responsible and cannot honor cached pricing information from third party caching servers, over which, we have no control.
We no longer offer our Printing Service at this time.
If you see a $1.00 authorization request on your online statement, keep in mind that this request isn't an actual charge; It is a test to confirm that your payment card account is active and has available funds to accommodate the transaction. Authorization holds are removed by your financial institution shortly after your purchase clears. The time it takes to remove authorization requests varies by financial institution.
