They may be used toward the purchase of any item in our vast product selection simply by visiting the site. Digital E-Gift Cards are available in denominations of $25, $50, $75, $100, $150, $250 and $500 can be purchased on the our Gift Card page. They make great gifts all year long.
In October 2014 we discontinued the sale of physical gift cards. If you have a physical gift card you may of course still redeem it in checkout.

There are multiple "pending" charges on my bank statement. What does that mean?

This means that the charge did not go through, those will clear by your bank in 1-3 days. We deny all charges with improper billing information. The only way you know your order went through is if you get an EMAIL CONFIRMATION from us. We recommend you contact your bank to re-verify your billing information and try your order again.**

OTHER FAQ

Do you have a phone number?

Unfortunately we do not have a live phone number to speak to customers.  Since we are a small business with no full time staff, we have a customer service email only that we operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  Please understand that we do not do this to inconvenience you, it is best to do this so we give all of our customers the best possible service as quickly as possible in the order of their inquiry.

Where can I find some of the articles from past seasons or items that aren’t in your store?

Generally speaking, we don’t reprint clothes once we sell out.

Why don't you offer big person sizes?

Many of our items had to be manufactured in large quantities up front, with a limit to the variation in sizes.  We are a small company and try to accommodate all of our customers, however, we cannot avoid this at this current time.  Many of our shirts can be printed in larger sizes.  If you have a particular one in mind, email our customer service email and we will try our best to take care of you.

How can I be informed of new clothing before it drops so I can get it before it sells out?

Make sure you follow us on Twitter @routeoneapparel and like us on Facebook. We also occasionally post promo codes on these outlets. Be sure to join our mailing list below as well.

Can I get free stuff if I promote your company?

Unfortunately we are a growing company and at this time cannot give away free products to people who promise to promote us.  If you bring us a lot of traffic and sales please document this and we might be able to work something out for you.

Can you sponsor my organization or non-profit?

We receive an overwhelming number of requests for free product or donations from charitable causes and non-profit organizations. Due to the fact that we're unable to honor all of these requests, it's our current policy not to honor any of them and reach out to the ones that we have the budget for directly. We understand that this may be frustrating and we appreciate your understanding. We do, however, offer group discounts on large quantity orders and we also recently started a "fundraiser catalog" that raises money for your cause based on a number of sales. If this interests you, please let us know!
