Orders will not be processed until payment has cleared.  If credit terms have been agreed, payment is due within the agreed credit period.  Interest may be charged on any outstanding amounts at a rate of 4% above the Barclays base rate at that time, accruing daily.  The Company reserves the right to refuse dispatch of goods to any credit account that is overdue.  A charge of £20 will be made for each instance of a returned or represented cheque.

CANCELLATIONS

The Company reserves the right to refuse cancellations of confirmed orders.  Depending on the circumstances the Company will try to accommodate cancellations, however, depending on what stage the order is in the process this may not be possible and the Customer may be liable for the full order price.  If stock has been ordered in but no decoration has taken place, the Customer will be liable for a minimum 30% restocking charge.  When paying for any order, the Customer accepts these terms and charges.

DELIVERY

The Company will endeavor to deliver the goods by the estimated date of delivery, however, will not under any circumstances be liable to the Customer for any loss, damage or expenses due to any delay in the delivery of the goods.  Where delivery is to be made by an independent carrier, delivery to or pickup by the carrier will be deemed as being delivery to the Customer.  If delivery is attempted by the carrier and there is nobody available to receive the delivery, a re-delivery card will be left. The Customer should respond to the card left to re-schedule the delivery, otherwise re-delivery will be automatically attempted by the carrier. If delivery is still not taken on the second delivery attempt the goods will be returned to us and the Customer will be liable to pay for a second delivery charge.  It is important that the Customer provides a delivery address where there will be someone available to receive delivery of the goods.  Claims for shortages or non-delivery must be supported by the carrier’s consignment or delivery note on which the goods have been signed and checked at the time of delivery. All claims for shortages or non-delivery must be made by telephone or email within 2 working days and in writing by post within 4 working days. Any loss or damage by the Customer after delivery is the sole responsibility of the Customer.

RETURNS POLICY

It is the Customers responsibility to check the visual proof of any artwork thoroughly making sure the design and layout are correct and ensure there are no spelling or grammatical errors.  If colour and size have been stipulated please make sure these are accurate also.  The Company will embroider/print as close to the visual layout as possible, so please ensure it is checked properly.  Please note that computer screen visual colours may vary slightly to colours of finished garments, inks, and embroidery threads.

If the embroidered/printed products are not as per the visual layout, or if there are any faults with the printing material or the garments, the Company will offer a full reprint without question.

You must inform us of what the problem is and submit photographs to evidence the problem or complaint within 2 working days of delivery by email or 4 working days in writing.  The Company refuses acceptance of goods returned without permission.  The Company does not trade on a ‘sale or return’ basis.

If prior to making payment to the Company, the Customer contracts to sell the goods to a third party in substantially the same form in which they were delivered to the Customer, then the title to such goods and payment liability shall pass from the Company to such third party upon full payment to the Company.

PRINT ARTWORK

If the artwork files supplied do not match our guidelines, we will do our best to recreate the artwork so that it is ready for print free of charge, if this is going to be a lengthy process there may be a small charge for re-working, this will be advised prior to commencing the order.

If possible, for speed and accuracy it is much better if the Customer can send us a visual template to work from.  If this is not possible the Company will create one for you (charges may apply).  The Company will also offer two revisions/changes to this template free of charge, further changes may be charged up to £10 per revision. Once you have signed off the visual template your decision is final.  Extra charges may be applied should you wish to make further changes to approved visuals.

The quality of our printing is of the utmost importance to us.  If the artwork supplied is not to our guideline standards it may still be printed but the quality of the print may be lower than we would like. If you have not supplied print ready files the Customer accepts full responsibility and also confirms that the Company will not be held responsible for sub quality print finishes that are caused as a result of sub quality non print ready artwork files being supplied.

Screen printing also involves artwork setup charges, these will be advised via quotation.

Pantone references must be stated if required otherwise we will print as closely as possible to screen or artwork copies.  Please note that colours on a computer screen visual may vary slightly to printed garments.
If specific artwork sizes are required these must be stated otherwise will use our expertise or print to size limitations.

EMBROIDERY ARTWORK

All embroidery artwork has to be converted in to a digitized format prior to being embroidered.  This will involve a one off set-up charge which will be advised via quotation. If the artwork files supplied do not match the Companies guidelines, we will do our best to recreate the artwork ready for embroidery.  If edits are required to digitised files these may be chargeable.  Pantone references must be stated if required otherwise we will embroider as closely as possible to screen or artwork copies.  Please note that colours on a computer screen visual may vary slightly to embroidery thread colours.
