Customer responsibility: Throughout the process of an order, various issues can pop up regarding the artwork or garments that you will need to address. (For example: if a certain garment color is out of stock, we would contact you and ask for an alternative option.) If we do not hear from you and do not resolve these issues in a timely manner, the turnaround time can be subject to delays. In cases where our distributors have back ordered or discontinued certain garments, we can offer substitute garments for the out of stock items, or we can wait until the stock is replenished. Please keep in mind that turnaround time may be affected, resulting in delays.

Artwork

With every order, we will provide a digital mock up and 1 revision. If additional mock ups are needed, the hourly artwork fee will be applied. It is the customer's responsibility to check the mock up for any misspellings or other errors. This especially applies to designs that have a list of names. If everything looks right, please confirm with us that the artwork is ready for print. If we do no hear from you in a timely manner, the turnaround time can be subject to delays.

Digital mock ups give a general idea of what the product will look like, but do not exactly translate to the final product. If you have specific dimensions, Pantone colors, and print placement details in mind, please let us know. With these parameters, we will do our best to get as close as possible. If these details are not given to us, we may use our best judgment and will not be held responsible.

Screen Setup

When customers pays for a screen setup, they are paying for the labor of applying the image to a screen, as well as setting up the job. The customer owns the artwork given, not the screen(s) itself. After a job is completed, we will reclaim the screen to be recycled for new jobs.

Garments

After every job, we breakdown the screens, thus the minimums would apply to reorders are well. So please order a few extra garments if you feel that you may need them.

Choosing the garment is the customer’s responsibility. We cannot guarantee that the customer will like the garment they have chosen, but will guarantee the print. Customers are expected to do their own research (we can provide you with the resources) on garments in regards to size, color, and style. We encourage our customers to come in to our shop and examine available samples. If we do not stock a particular item, you may purchase a sample and have it shipped to our shop.

Customer Supplied Garments

We have a standard misprint allowance of 2-3% per order and will not be held responsible for the misprints. You will not be billed for misprints, but please order a few extra shirts to compensate for this if exact quantities are required. We require our contract screen printing clients to provide a detailed list of items such as: style number, size breakdown, and color with each order.

Misprints

The art of screenprinting is a manual process. Sure, we have the latest technology in automated printing, however there are countless variables that can make this process an imperfect one. Loading a t-shirt into our machine is a manual process, thus print locations will vary slightly from one to another and may not be perfectly straight. We do our best to print consistently, but the fact is that the garments themselves are imperfect.

This is the reality of screenprinting. In some cases, if we misprint on a garment we will not charge you for that item. We recommend ordering a few extra pieces if you need exact numbers to stay on the safe side. In some rare cases that we have made a big error (like printing on the wrong garments, printing the wrong design, or printing on the wrong location), we will reprint the job for you.

Return Policy

Returns accepted for damaged products only ie bad prints, damaged shirts. Returns will not be accepted for size exchanges. Please notify us via email to authorize return. A restocking fee of $6 for returns will be charged for returns without authorization.

Terms and conditions are subject to change without notice.




Frequently Asked Questions




Do you have minimums?

We don’t require minimums but anything under a dozen is technically considered a sample run, which we’re more than happy to do if the customer is willing to pay a sample fee in addition to the standard printing / setup charges.

What type of shirts can you get?

Almost any kind you can think of, ranging anywhere from $1.50 and up depending on the quality and quantity of shirts. Typical jobs run on Hanes, Next Level, AAA, Gildan... Independent Trading Co. has really good fleece for hoodies or crewneck sweatshirts.

What type of inks do you use?

We mostly low-impact plastisol inks on manual presses, but we can do water-based or discharge printing on depending on the job.

Do you guys do heat transfer, sublimation, or DTG (direct to garment) printing?

No, we currently do not offer any of those services.

How long does it take?

Standard turnaround is within 10 business days, but turnaround times may vary. If you need guaranteed faster service that’s considered “rush service” and extra fees apply.

Do you guys do embroidery?

We do not currently offer embroidery services.

Do you charge setup fees?

Standard setup is $40 per screen / color / area, but we’ll often reduce or even waive setup if the quantities are significant.

Do I own my screen(s)?

No. When you pay screen setup fees, said fees only cover the labor involved with putting your artwork onto the screen(s). See above.

Can you create a logo if we don’t have one, or can you recreate our logo?

Yes. Standard pricing for design work is $25/hr with a one-hour minimum. Most logos can be press-ready in one to three hours.

What exactly is a “basic website”?

A “basic website” usually consists of 1-4 pages including at least a homepage and contact page. It could also have a “services” or “portfolio” page, or maybe a “news” page for example. Basic websites work across all devices and start at $500?

Do you guys do SEO?

Yes, but a lot of people have a misconception of Search Engine Optimization... it’s like anything else, you don’t get to the top overnight. It can take months or even years depending on how you choose to maintain your site, but we strive to build our sites following as many best practices as possible, for example we try to ensure W3C compliance and keep page requests and overall weight as low as possible.

Will we be able to edit our site?

Basic Websites can include a limited amount of client editability, for example a “blog” or “news” page, or maybe a list of services your company offers.
