Do the bowling shirts run true to size?

That's not an easy question to answer since there are many different sizing scales throughout the world. However, the garment chest sizes we show are accurate. All of our bowling shirts are unisex styled.

Classic Bowlers Fifties-style tapered fit Small-3XL (up to 6XL in black/white)
Retrobowlers Box-cut true fit Small-3XL (up to 6XL in white/black and red/black)
Swingmasters Box-cut oversize action fit Small-3XL

For the most up to date sizing, please check our Size Page.

If you are unsure about sizes, feel free to call us during business hours - 1-(800)444-1685 or e-mail support@bowlingshirt.com. Our business hours are 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Central Time.

Do you offer larger sized bowling shirts (3X & up)?

Most of our bowling shirt styles are available in 3X. We are the only online bowling shirt company to offer 4X, 5X, and 6X in some styles. We may be able to special order even larger sizes - call us during business hours at 1-(800)444-1685 or e-mail support@bowlingshirt.com. Our business hours are 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Central Time.

I'm creating my own logo. How should I prepare the art file?

Custom Screen Printing

To handle your custom Screen Print order in a timely manner, please follow the guidelines below:

  • Art must be created & saved as a vector file: PC and MAC users: Adobe Illustrator CS6 or lower.
  • All fonts and typesfaces must be outlined as objects.
  • Use spot colors to color your artwork. We do not process print.
  • We will match your Pantone Solid Coated ink colors. An additional $7.50 per Pantone color will apply per project.
  • Halftones are accepted. Please use tints of Pantone Solid Coated swatch colors and/or gradients including those swatch colors.
  • Line thickness of 2 pts minimum.
  • Negative space (shirt color) of 2 pts minimum.

We cannot accept JPEGs, GIFs, or Tiff format for screen printing purposes. We can only VIEW these file types to quote prices & art charges for your design. If you only have a raster version of your design, we will have to re-create the design/logo in the proper format, and art charges will apply.

Custom Computer Embroidery

Please follow these guidlines below when creating your Custom Computer Embroidered logo.

  • All type needs to be at least .25" tall.
  • Line thickness needs to be at least 2 points thick.
  • Non sewing areas (shirt color) need a thickness of at least 3 points.
  • Set your design on a contrasting or transparent background.
  • All fonts and typesfaces must be outlined as objects.
  • Specify thread colors when placing your order. We can pantone match thread colors at an addtional charge.
  • Save your logo as a Vector file OR as a Raster file. For Computer Embroidery we do accept .jpg .tiff and .png files.
  • Please ensure your file is large enough. We cannot digitize thumbnail images; art charges will apply.

How do you wash & care for the shirts?

For most of our shirts, we recommend cool wash, drip or tumble dry. NEVER dry clean and NEVER iron on a screenprinted design. NEVER use a hot dryer to dry your shirts.


For chainstitched names, what does "$4.95 per word" mean?

Imagine yourself writing in cursive in thread. That is what chainstitching is. The general rule is if your pen comes off the paper, that's the word break. To write "Mike" on a shirt, it is one word. If you want "Big Mike," that would be two. If you go by the name "J. T." we will charge you for just one word (we throw in punctuation marks).

If you have further questions feel free to call us during business hours - 1-(800)444-1685. Our business hours are 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. Central Time.


Where are the chainstitched names put on the shirts?

Traditionally we put names on the left chest of the shirt, above the pocket if there is one. If a print or embroidery already resides on the left chest, the name will be placed on the right chest.
