Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions of Sale

Samples: There is a charge for all samples supplied, which unless by prior written agreement, are non-returnable. All carriage costs will be borne by the Customer.

Supplied samples are generic and will not include your details or intended artwork unless otherwise agreed in writing with the Company. Pre-production samples are available upon request.

Responsibility: It is the Customer’s responsibility to ensure that the goods ordered are in every way correct for the purpose for which they are intended, not withstanding that such purpose may not be known to us. We are responsible only for supplying goods to the specification agreed with the Customer. If you have any concerns regarding a product, we strongly recommend requesting a sample.

Clothing Sizes: Due to variations in different manufacturers sizes. If you have any concerns, we strongly recommend requesting a sample.

Due to manufacturing processes, there may be variations of up to 20% in sizes within the same batch, from the same supplier. If you have any concerns, please contact us for manufacturer size charts and expected tolerances. This will be supplied where available and on reasonable notice.

Clothing Shrinkage: Garments may be subject to shrinkage upon washing.

ARTWORK

Artwork Requirements:

Supply: Artwork should be supplied via email in Corel Draw, PDF or Adobe Illustrator (V7 for PC use). All fonts should be converted to curves/outline.

Other formats and hard copy can be used, but may incur additional costs.

Poor Quality: Where the artwork supplied is of poor quality, we will request something of a higher standard or suggest to have it redrawn. There will be a cost for the latter service.

Artwork Approval: Prior to print and/or production we will supply an artwork approval document outlining the product details and personalisation details. As this is a virtual representation of the final product and not a physical sample, variations may occur between the artwork signed off and the final product delivered. If you have any concerns, we strongly recommend requesting a pre-production sample.

PERSONALISATION

Pantone Colour Matching: Whilst we endeavor to match Pantone references as closely to those supplied as possible, there may be a variance of +/- 10%. For exact matches, please contact us in relation to the additional cost.

Where no reference is given, a swatch should be supplied and matched at our discretion. We CANNOT match from colours supplied via electronic format, as the appearance of colours vary from one computer screen to another.

Unless otherwise requested, we will assume all Pantone references are for coated inks where applicable.

Embroidery Thread Matching: As there are a limited number of thread colours available, we cannot guarantee an exact Pantone match for embroidered colours.

Artwork & Logo Reproduction:

Embroidery: Due to its nature, an exact replication of a logo or artwork cannot be guaranteed with the embroidery process. The final design will be our interpretation of the artwork supplied. If you have any concerns, we strongly recommend requesting a pre-production sample.

Due to the nature of embroidery, a certain amount of “pulling” of the garment may occur. This is unavoidable

and will vary in severity according to the garment and detail being embroidered. If you have any concerns, we strongly recommend requesting a pre-production sample.

Please also note, that due to the process employed during embroidery a “pressure ring” may appear around the embroidered area. This is unavoidable. However, on washable items and garments, it will usually disappear after the  initial wash.

Process (Full Colour) Printing: Where an item is printed using any four colour (CMYK) or three colour (RGB) process print, we cannot guarantee a match for any colours.

Due to the nature of this type of printing, there may be variations in colours not only between different batches, but also within the same batch.

Spot Colour Printing: Due to it’s nature, spot colour printing by use of screen or pad (Tampo) printing, cannot always guarantee an exact reproduction of the artwork approved.

Engraving: As engraving is achieved by scratching a surface, the contrast achieved between the engraved and non-engraved areas will vary from product to product. There may also be variations within the same batch.

Foil Blocking & Embossing: As foil blocking and embossing require the application of significant pressure to a product, the final product may vary from that shown on the artwork approval. If you have any concerns, we strongly recommend requesting a pre-production sample.

Positioning: It is not possible to guarantee the exact positioning of personalisation on any product. Whilst we endeavour to make all personalisation as accurate as possible, there may be variations of appearance within the same or different batches, where personalisation may appear crooked, off-square or off-centre.
Intellectual Property: If the goods are personalised in accordance with a specification submitted by the Customer, the Customer shall indemnify the Company against all losses, damages, costs and expenses suffered by the Company in connection with any claim for infringement of copyright, design rights, patent, trademark or other intellectual property rights which results from the Company’s use of the Customer’s specification.
