Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a catalogue?
Crested offers thousands of items, from many suppliers, so we don’t have a general catalogue. We’ve put together a few documents with popular clothing styles in both the Students and Staff & Faculty sections. We encourage you to get in touch with us directly about what you’re looking for or any ideas you’ve got, and we can help from there.


How long does it take?
Production time depends on the product and quantity, but generally orders are fulfilled in around two weeks. We may be able to work with a tighter deadline if necessary. The more time we have, the better! Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, some items are taking longer to produce.


How do I order?
The easiest and fastest way to order is to send us an e-mail at crested@mcmaster.ca with the following information:

  • Your name and department/program
  • The item you’re looking for and how many you need
  • Your budget (either overall, or per item)
  • An attached logo (or, if using a McMaster/Marauders logo, let us know which one)
  • The date you need your order in-hand
We’ll guide you from there and provide you with item options, pricing, and order forms.


Ordering Tip: order 10% more than you need. If you place your order and end up needing just a few more items, we may not be able to help without a substantial under-minimum charge. It’s far better to have too many than too few. This applies to apparel orders too, in case of events like new staff, new club members, late registrations, etc.

Students

Crested is here to outfit your club, team, graduating class, event, or even your entire program. We’ll work with one representative from your group and provide you with pricing and order forms. Below are some documents with more information – including our clothing suggestions!
