Sweatpants. Green. Yellow writing. Help.

Sweatpants emergency! Help me find an online retailer that will custom-print on a pair of sweatpants, and ship to Canada. Very specific specifics included.

A group of friends want to get someone custom-made sweatpants for her birthday (inside joke/long story/etc).

Things we need:

- forest green sweatpants (like these but green)
- customizable text on the leg (preferably screenprinted, but embroidery is doable as a last resort)
- text must be able to come in yellow
- sweatpants must have elastic waist and elastic ankles
- sweatpants must come in Men's Small, or Youth Large
- the company has to ship to Canada

Things we would be ecstatic about:

- cheaper than $45 for the sweatpants
- free or inexpensive shipping
- shipping in less than 2-4 weeks
- sweatpants with pockets

I've checked our local mall, the 2 Wal-Marts in our area, and even called malls in neighbouring towns. No one sells forest green sweatpants.

I can highly recommend CustomInk for your low-quantity custom-screenprinted clothing needs.

Although you will need to order at least 6. Get a pair for everybody for additional fun.

Try a school uniform shop for the sweat pants. Forest green is a common school color.

Neighborhoodies? The pants aren't the same sort of sweatpants, but more like yoga pants. One of the color options is "Olive", although I can't see it because I don't have the plugins for it.

i think if you could find sweatpants and then have them screen printed locally, you might have better luck. i found some places with sweatpants like you describe, but no canada shipping :(

Wow, you weren't kidding, those are hard to find. Not sure if you are aware of this, but those are the team colors of the Green Bay Packers (American football team). I've seen custom Packers sweatshirts online, but I can't find any sweatpants.

Could you get a bunch of white or pale grey ones, dye them forest green, and then have them printed?

If you can't find anyone local to print them, buy DIY iron-on transfers (like these), print from a color printer, and iron them on yourself!

If you wanted to go the brick-and-mortar route, I bet you could get this done at a local sporting-supply shop. They do this all the time for local sports teams, and inside-joke requests are not unusual at all. They could probably do heat-set letters or embroidered, and I bet they supply the right kind of sweats.

thanks, everyone.

the school uniform supplier in town doesn't have any green sweatpants in stock, and they will likely take 3-4 weeks to get them if i order them.

the sports supply shops don't have forest green - just grey, black, and navy.

i might just get them shipped somewhere in the US, and get a friend to send them to me.
