Orders, Cancellation & Returns



All prices reflect Elite Sportswear's commitment to offering consistently high standards in quality at the lowest possible prices. However, continued increases in raw materials, utilities, labor, etc. subject us to price changes beyond our control. Therefore, prices are subject to change without notice.


All prices are in U.S. Dollars. Payment types are limited to those presented on the Check Out page. Credit cards accepted include VISA, MasterCard, Novus Cards (includes: Discover, Bravo and Private Issue). For school districts, colleges and universities, and YMCAs purchase orders are accepted. Retail accounts (not consumers) may also pay by check or money order only, please. A service fee of $35.00 will be charged for any check payment that must be reprocessed. If an account warrants placement with a collection agency, all charges resulting from the collection are the responsibility of the customer.

Payment in full or a purchase order (P.O.'s apply to colleges, high schools, and YMCAs only) must be received before an order goes into production. Special order charged to VISA, MasterCard, Novus Cards will be billed at the time the order is placed. Orders for stock items will be charged at the time of order.

However, these methods of shipping are considerably more expensive and are the responsibility of the customer.

Stock and special orders that are placed at the same time do not get processed or shipped together, due to the additional lead time required for special order items. Therefore, it is necessary to include separate shipping and handling charges.
