Quality of our products and service is a primary focus. The finest dyes are used, but exact color matches between dye lots and complete color fastness in all dark colors cannot be guaranteed. Some shrinkage in garments is unavoidable. Garment variation depends on the process and the fabric.
It is our number one goal to ship orders to you on time. We occasionally ship an order with a few items missing. All orders within 10% of the original amount ordered, per size and per garment are considered complete, and will ship unless instructed otherwise. Backorders will be placed for shortages over 10% or more pieces of a multi-color screen-printed design. There are two reasons why an order might not ship complete with all items ordered: 1. Upon inspection by the quality control department, some garments may be pulled if they do not meet our expectations. 2. Garments may not be available that meet the expected ship date. All back orders will be held for 60days.
Customer satisfaction is our primary focus, and we stand behind the quality of our products and services. On occasion, a substandard garment may get past our Quality Control process.
