Q: Why are certain event dates unavailable during checkout?

A: We require a minimum of 12 days to design, approve, print, cut, package, and mail all orders so the earliest available event date is 12 business days from your order date. If you are not able to select your event date please pick the first day available before the correct date.

Depending on our current order volume a rush option may be available to you. Please send an email to sales@boulderbibs.com to inquire about a rush order.


Q: Is there a minimum order requirement?

A: Yes, we require your order to total at least $50.00. Once your cart totals $50.00 or more, you will be able to proceed through the checkout process. Some products may also have minimum quantities, please refer to the description on the product page for specifics.


Q: Can I supply my own artwork?

A: Yes, we are more than happy to use art you already have! You must submit a vector file (pdf, eps, or ai) in CMYK format. Please size your artwork to include a 1/4" bleed all the way around. All text must be converted to outlines and any linked files should be embedded before uploading your files. If you'd like to download any of the bib templates, they be can located here. If you have questions about these requirements please get in contact with us via phone or email.


Q: What are the differences between your material types?

A: Standard: a tyvek-alternative option with superior print quality (used for BolderBOULDER, Bay to Breakers and others)
Tyvek: a traditional tyvek bib (used for Obstacle Runs)
Upgrade: our most heavy duty bib, stronger than tyvek (used for IRONMAN)

For the best print quality we recommend choosing either the standard or tyvek option.
