Our whole team is dedicated to making sure your store is built, launched, produced, and shipped as quickly and efficiently as possible.

You will be working directly with your Store Curator to develop your store as well as strategize how to make it as successful as possible.

Our expert graphic design and web departments work fast to get you the design proofs and detailed webstore summary you need to approve and launch the store.

Once approved, your store can be built and launched within a matter of hours if need be. While the store is live your only duty is to promote the store as much as possible. As soon as the store closes all orders go into production. 

After contacting us about your interest in starting a store, an assigned store curator will reach out to you. Together you will work on developing the store.

Your store curator can contact you either via email or by phone, whatever you prefer. If you are located nearby in Iowa, feel free in scheduling an in person meeting.

We have a large product catalog to suit the needs of any type of store. Your store curator is knowledgeable in the most popular styles and hottest clothing trends. They will pitch you ideas and help narrow down what products to offer on the store. You are always encouraged to view our catalog selection and discover products yourself. A typical store offers around 12-15 products and 2-3 designs.

After coming up with designs, and discussing potential products for the store, the store curator will send a summary document containing store dates, product mock-up images, and prices for you to look over and approve.

Note: Once a store is fully approved we are unable to make any product additions or changes.

Once the store is approved, you will be provided with a social media kit to help advertise the store. The social media kit includes a Facebook image, Twitter image, Instagram image, and a physical flyer image that can be printed and distributed.

Once your store is launched our staff is always on stand by to answer any questions you or your customers may have. 

We handle everything from order additions, subtractions, cancellations, refunds, and more. 

We can be reached via any of our contact pages, or directly through email or phone. We typically respond to emails within an hour.

Returns, Exchanges, and Late Orders Policy

  • Unfortunately, we are not able to accept returns or exchanges for screen printed or embroidered items purchased from the Adcraft WebStores Fundraising Program.

  • In order to efficiently raise money for the sport or club, we run on a made-to-order basis. We do not keep any of the products in stock and the entire collection of individual orders are printed/embroidered, folded, and packed at the same time.

  • Hard goods and unembellished apparel are allowed refunds so long as they are unused/unworn and fall within 30-days from date of purchase
  • Unfortunately, once a web store is closed, we cannot re-open the store for late orders. The orders are sent into production immediately when the store closes. All of the orders are run at the same time to allow more room for fundraising for the group putting on the web store and the customers who ordered while the store was still active need to have their orders filled immediately.

    If there is enough demand for the web store to re-open, the group/organization running the web store may consider doing a second campaign and contact us to do so.

  • Setting up a stand-alone order is possible should you accept to pay an additional setup-fee (stock pending)
  • Note: “Late” Stand-alone orders may not arrive until after a store’s advertised estimated ship date  
  • Should an item arrive damaged or defective, please contact us and provide a detailed description of the issue, order number, and an image of the item. We will then determine the best course of action, whether it be a refund, repair, or replacement.
