SETUP CHARGES
Setup fees and charges include the cost of labour to setup and produce printed goods. Any tools, inks, films, strike offs and proofs are the property of Ironclad Graphics and are in no way covered in setup fees.

DIGITAL PROOFS
-All digital proofs include two revisions to the mockup (placement change, ink colour change, garment change).

-We provide a digital proof for all customers when they order. This is designed to show you what the finished product will look like. The proofs will show location and approximate size of the finished piece. If you want to know exactly what the size of the print is, you need to refer to the included job specs, and use a ruler to decide if the print is of sufficient size.

-We have standard print locations for “Full Front” “Left Chest” “Full Back” and “Shoulder Blade” prints. If your print requires special placements other than standard print locations, it is the customers responsibility to indicate the exact placement.

-Approving digital proofs is the sole responsibility of the client.
-Clients that approve print specs are not entitled to refunds if they later claim they didn’t look at the proof
-All image sizes, print locations and colours during production will be governed by the digital proof/mockup. In the event of any dispute about image placement, size or location, the approved mockup/proof is the only document that will be considered valid.

RUSH JOBS
Rush jobs will have a 20% fee added for any jobs due under our normal turn around time of two weeks.
-Jobs needed in 2-3 days will have 50% added to the cost.
-Rush Jobs must be indicated at the initial time of ordering

CUSTOMER SUPPLIED MERCHANDISE
We do not accept customer supplied garments from standard customers. 

If you are a broker or promotional products company, or a large scale buyer, you are welcome to contact us about opening a print only account. 

INK COLOURS
-All apparel printing inks can be mixed to match the Pantone Matching System (PMS) Solid Coated books.

-Customers that supply Pantone colours must understand the following: Our colours are chosen out of approved and recent Pantone Books. We assume any Pantone colour submitted to us will also be chosen out of these books.
-Pantone colours chosen our of Photoshop or Illustrator will not necessarily be accurate to actual Pantone books, and thus we cannot assure proper colour matching during production.

GARMENTS
As we are not the garment manufacturer, we can only offer so many assurances as to fit and consistency. Because apparel is still sewn by real people, sometimes in various locations, variations in size, colour and finish are possible. We do our absolute best to check the shirts for defects before printing, but due to the volume of production 100% perfection cannot be assured.

-Customers take all responsibility for approving final garment choice. If you are unhappy with your choice, we are unable to replace or offer refunds.

-We are subject to our suppliers availability. If they are out of stock of a certain colour shirt, then we cannot assure delivery and will not be held liable for any losses, real or imagined, by lack of supplier stock.

FINAL COUNT

-All orders are considered complete if the final unit count is +/- 5%.  This is a standard across the manufacturing sector.

You will not be billed for extras, and you won’t be charged for any misprints.
