We have compiled a list of answers to some Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s), concerning our policies on ordering and shipping. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at Info@LaughingLizards com
“I CANT TELL HOW BIG AN ITEM IS”
Clicking on the title or picture of an item listing will open the item details page which will have the dimensions listed in the items description area. All are listed in inches of width x height, measured from the outer most points, so if a letter has a loop at the top, the measurement will begin at the top point of the loop sticking up, not the body of the letter itself.
If the item description does not show the measurements, please email or call us for dimensions rather than assuming. Item size in pictures may be misleading as they are all scanned individually and cropped to show the items details, so you cannot assume how large an item is in perspective to the image or other images around it.
“WHAT IF MY ITEM IS OUT OF STOCK?”
Most orders are shipped within 2 business days (M-F) of the order being placed. All orders are processed in the order they are received, with the exception of UPS, Priority and Express mail orders, which receive priority. Please account for this time when selecting your shipping method. IF YOU HAVE ORDERED T-SHIRTS, BEANIES OR TOTES, please select PRIORITY MAIL!

Due to the fast turnover of trends and patch designs, it is impossible for us to keep up on a print catalog, so unfortunately, we do not have any pamphlets or catalogs we can mail out. All our stock is listed online for your review. If you need some assistance in figuring out how to work our site, please give us a call an we can assist you!
1) Image – Send us a jpg or bmp image (resolution is not important for quote but at least 400 dpi for digitization will be necessary. We cannot open zip files due to computer security reasons.)
2) Size – Let us know what the dimensions should be (at least one maximum dimension and we can increase it proportionately.)
3) Quantity – Let us know how many of the design you need (Minimum for production is 50 pieces per design. We can do less, but they may be VERY costly.
The largest price breaks are usually from 50 to 100 and from 300-500. If you are not sure, please request a few ie…. “Please quote Qty 50, 100, 300”)
…FOR EMBROIDERED PATCHES:
4) Iron on – Let us know if you require a heat seal backing for iron on or no backing if you will be sewing on. (Iron on usually is only another .03 -.05 a patch and you can sew through the backing if you select iron on but don’t use it.
5) Shape – What shape would you like your logo on? A circle/rectangle/oval backing shape or would you like it cut out around the design?
6) Embroidery percentage – 100% embroidered or can we use a majority color of your design as backing color and embroider accent colors onto it? Every stitch adds cost, so using mixed media saves cost! See examples below
-For example of a logo stitched onto black twill as the backing color, click here: Star Wars Oval Logo . This is more cost effective (stitching the grey on twill) than embroidering the entire patch. This design, because the letters dont touch, has to be on some sort of backing shape. If they did touch, you could do a lettering cutout patch in a format like this: “Star” Patch
-For an example of a cutout patch that is 100% embroidered, click here: Toucan Cutout Patch . This is more costly than using a red or blue backing and embroidering all the other colors onto it, yet it does look richer, thicker and more full.
…OR FOR RHINESTONE OR RHINESTUD APPLIQUES:
4) What media would you like the design in? Rhinestone, Rhinestud, Nailhead, or mixed? Stones are more expensive than studs and mixing the 2 can really give your design a pop!
– For example, this necklace design uses multiple stone/stud types for its unique look! Heart Necklace
Rhinestones are clear stones that can have color variations as well, Rhinestuds are a metal faceted stud, Nail heads are a metal type stud with a round dome instead of faceting.
