You certainly can! Click Contact Us at NATCAstore.com or call and we will assign a discount code on apparel or non-apparel items for your facility. Before online checkout, members must provide the assigned code under “PROMOTION CODE” to receive the arranged discount off of their merchandise total. If the promotion code is not entered or is entered incorrectly, the order will default to a normal price.

13. My local has designed a logo for polo shirts. How can we go about adding it to the list of available logos offered to members?
Keep in mind that any NATCA local or member who wishes to use the NATCA logo or the name in another font or format must receive prior National Office Approval. This can be done through your RVP or a request for the NATCA Store to submit the approval request on your behalf. All items bearing the NATCA name or logo shall be union made or, at a minimum, American made.

If your design is ready simply e-mail a jpeg file to natcastore@natcadc.org or call 800-266-0895 for assistance. The file is then digitized or punched in for embroidery. There is an embroidery setup fee of $45, which includes one stitch out. Assuming National Office Approval is received, there are no trademark infringements, and there are no copyright problems, we will go ahead and upload it into the current list of available logos at the natcastore.com.

14. 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 natcastore@natcadc.org. Our embroiderer will create the logo from scratch. The NATCA Store will submit the final logo for National Office Approval on your behalf. There is an art charge of $25 – $45, which includes two revisions. Additional revisions will be billed at $25 per hour. Once the logo is approved, the next step is the embroidery (note the $45 embroidery set up fee). 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 natcastore.com. All items bearing the NATCA name or logo shall be union made or, at a minimum, American made.

15. Our facility would like to design a t-shirt for our members. How can we get these made available to the store site?
Unlike polo shirts, t-shirt design is silk-screened and the charge is $20 per color. If you have a variety of t-shirt colors or if your logo has more than one color, the charge is per screen per color. Advanced National Office Approval is required for the use of the NATCA name or logo in another font or format. The NATCA Store will submit the final design for National Office approval on your behalf.

You can also order t-shirts from NATCA store but there is a 24-piece minimum. Once we have an idea on the t-shirt colors, size and quantity, we will be able to provide full pricing later. All items bearing the NATCA name or logo shall be union made or, at a minimum, American made.

16. What type of file can we send for the 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.

17. I have an idea for a product that I think would sell. What should I do?
Contact Customer Service at natcastore@natcadc.org or call 800-266-0895. If your idea makes sense and it is feasible, we will add it to our current selection for the members. It is as simple as that!!
