    You could do it yourself by buying plain ties and getting some fabric paint. You can find this in most fabric stores.

    I know my limitations and designing and painting ties are not one of my strengths.

    Look up King menus on the internet. I think they might have what your looking for.

    Another option is to check out your local embroidery place. Some will work with ties. I just ran into someone who had a pearl gray logo embroidered on a black silk? tie. It looked pretty sharp.

    A lot of places it costs about $40 to get your camera ready artwork converted to an embroidery disk--then places cost $5-15 for a single colour logo to be added.

    How much are you looking to spend? There are people out there that will silk screen custom logos/designs. They may have the capability to do ties--or have an alternative option.

    Good luck!

    Thank you Unichef....I've contacted them and they do not have shroom designs...but we'll see aobut possibly coming up with a design.
    Not sure about the volume I don't need 500
    but possibly 100. We'll see; they were gracious when I e-mailed them and said their site was difficult for me to manuver in...they were prompt with info.
