April 6 update: Email confirmations have been sent for ALL orders received by us. So far that is everything postmarked through April 3. IF YOU MAILED YOUR ORDER ANY TIME BEFORE APRIL 4 AND HAVE NOT RECEIVED A CONFIRMATION EMAIL FROM ME, please email me right away here so I can be sure to include your order.

If your order hasn't reached us yet, just drop us a quick line to let us know it's on the way. We'll be compiling orders all of next week. And if you forgot to order, I will squeeze you in if at all possible - just drop me a line at our CPE 2017 Shirts email (please be sure to use that address, not the general Beauty of the Beasts email address. We'll be out of town at a trial through Sunday pm but will try to check email once or twice while we're away. Thanks!

March 31 to April 2 update: Just got back from being out of town vending for over 2 weeks, so if you haven't heard from us, no cause for alarm! Picked up mail and have a pile of Nationals orders, and we'll start sending out confirmations of order receipt Monday April 3 (had to doublecheck with WAG that we have pickup info correct, which will be in the confirmation). I will update here as confirmations are sent.

So please don't stress if you are waiting to hear from us and mailing your order in the last few days - just drop us a line to confirm by email so we're aware it's coming. Thanks!

This page includes additional info and shirt color swatches, measurements, photos of sweatshirts, outerwear etc. available for the CPE Nationals designs. The order deadline for Nationals shirts is April 7 - please see order form on CPE event page for all ordering details.

Can't wait for you all to see the California CPE Nationals design!! We won't be able to vend this year, so there will not be additional shirts for sale at Nationals this year. Because of that, please be sure to get your order to us by April 7 at the latest so you don't miss out on your shirts - the only print run will be before Nationals!

And just fyi... in previous years we've been able to squeeze in some late orders, but this year our schedule is packed SOLID in April, so please be sure to get your order to us by the deadline so you aren't disappointed.

You can download the CPE Nationals shirt order form here Please feel free to email us if you have any questions, and please let us know if we missed anything!

2017 CPE Nationals Italian charms... two versions!




IS THE DESIGN POSTED ONLINE?
We put a lot of work into our CPE nationals shirts and are always excited for you to see them! However as mentioned on the order info sheet, it is a CPE tradition to not release Nationals designs until the first day of Nationals. So as much as we would love to share them with you, we are sworn to secrecy. ;)

What we CAN tell you... the silkscreened design will be 7 colors - black, white, turquoise, green, gold, red, and brown, and about 12 inches across. It will have a lot of detail and will reflect California themes such as state animals, flowers, etc. in a similar way to the Florida and Ohio shirts. If you haven't seen those, here they are so you can get an idea of our design style.




Please read item measurements and descriptions carefully before ordering to ensure you are ordering the correct size.


SHIRT COLORS
We've compiled these shirt color swatches ourselves, since the ones we have available from the manufacturers are often way off. These swatches are a pretty close representation of shirt color, however the exact color you see will depend on your specific monitor and color settings. (A couple of the newer colors aren't on here yet but if you need to see one of those we can email it to you directly.)





CLOTHING MEASUREMENTS
It can be difficult to find measurements for clothing online, but also difficult to shop if you don't have an idea of how the sizes run. For your convenience, we're providing you with an average range of measurements so you can measure a similar item you like the fit of, and compare--after you compare sizing on some of the items listed, you'll see why you don't want to just guess. The range was determined by taking measurements from a variety of brands that we carry--in most cases, the size falls about in the middle of the range. We are using all the same brands of t-shirts as we did for the Florida, Minnesota and Ohio CPE Nationals shirts, if you have one of those to doublecheck.

To see which colors pictured above are available for each style of t-shirt, please check the list of colors on the order info sheet here. Colors available for sweatshirts are listed below, along with description and measurements.
