Tax Exempt: If you are shopping for a tax exempt organization, please create an account and email us your exemption paperwork at tcs@thecostumesource.com. We can then set you up as a tax exempt customer.

Magnetic Tapes: On Magnetic Snap Tape, the magnets are aligned in the center of the tape, so when closed, the two sides of the tape are stacked right on top of each other. It should be stitched down on both edges of the tape. In the Magnetic Zipper Tape, the magnets are aligned on the edge of the tapes, so when closed, the tape extends beyond the closure on either side. It can be sewn in in the same way as a zipper, with stitching on only one side. Different magnet intervals and strengths are available by special order.

Special Orders: Many of the products we carry are available in other colors or sizes. Don't see it here? Just ask! We also have contacts at many additional vendors- if you're looking to purchase something but can't meet the manufacturer's minimums, let us help. Special orders are subject to an additional charge of $9.95 or 10% of the merchandise total, whichever is higher.
