Alterations by Mail
For over 25 years, John Pontello has been hailed as one of the most unique providers of tailoring and alteration services, founding the pick-up and delivery of alterations in the metro Atlanta (GA) area. He has yet again come up with a simple, unique way to serve anyone needing basic alterations (not requiring a fitting, obviously): via mail!
How Does Alterations by Mail Work?
If you have basic alteration requests like pants that need to be hemmed, and you know that you need it hemmed one inch exactly, you can just pop it in the mail and send it to me. The idea came to me as some of my favorite clients moved out of the metro Atlanta area and simply refused to let another tailor touch their clothing! So why not let anyone mail me alterations?
I do request that you give me a call or email a head of time to make sure that I will be able to perform each of the alteration requests that you have, as not to waste anyone's time or postage!

My typical turnaround time with alterations by mail is 5 business days from the receipt of your order, and/or the day your payment is processed. At this time, you can pay with a credit or debit card over the phone or you can include a check with your order.
You pay to ship the order to me. For all alteration orders totaling $50 or more, I will pay the return shipping, else the cost of return shipping will be calculated into your order total.
