SPECIAL ORDERS, BULK ORDERS, & BLANKET PURCHASE ORDERS
SPECIAL ORDERS: If you can’t find what you need from our stock, we can get you any item YKK produces in any length and color. These special orders are made specifically at the YKK factory (most likely the Macon, GA factory) and drop shipped right to your door. Lead times for special orders vary from 1-4 weeks depending on the item and factory production schedules at the time. Due to YKK factory requirements, special orders must be ordered in quantity (25-100 per color depending on the item). Please send an email to Scott at firstname.lastname@example.org for special order requests and we will get back to you with price and lead time. In your request for a special order please provide the following:
- TYPE OF ZIPPER…Coil, Vislon (molded plastic), or Metal (if metal what finish of teeth…brass, aluminum, nickel, antique brass, etc.)
- SIZE OF THE ZIPPER…each zipper is sized with a number based on the size of the teeth…that larger the number, the bigger the teeth. Standard size is #5 and the largest size is #10. Usually the slider will have a number on the body that will tell you the size of a YKK zipper.
- FUNCTION OF ZIPPER…Separating Jacket Type, Open Top Closed Bottom, Closed Ends, 2-WAY, Reversible, etc.
- TYPE OF SLIDER ON THE ZIPPER…Locking, Non-Locking, Reversible, etc.
- LENGTH OF THE ZIPPER. Zippers can be ordered in any length down to 1/10th of an inch.
- COLOR OF THE ZIPPER TAPE. Every color under the rainbow is available from YKK.
- QUANTITY. Tell us how many of each zipper you are requesting because the more you order the more we can discount.

- Special orders are billed at the time of the order and cannot be returned so we need to make every effort to assure you are ordering exactly the item you want.
