OUT OF STOCKS
It is unfortunate, but sometimes our vendors will run out of particular styles or colors. If this happens we can offer a variety of possible substitute products from other vendors, or you can choose to wait until the items are back in stock. If you choose to wait for the inventory to be replenished we cannot guarantee the turnaround time or that the items will be back in stock when the vendor says they will. If you choose a substitute garment then we should be able to stick to our typical turnaround time unless those garments are out-of-stock as well.
All original artwork created by Queen City Tees, LLC is the sole property of Queen City Tees, LLC, although rights to the artwork may be purchased in addition to the design fees. This includes conceptual artwork and jobs not contracted or completed where Queen City Tees, LLC has spent time on the art process.
Any artwork that is provided by the customer is owned by the customer. We will not reproduce the customer’s artwork, trademarked or not, without the customer’s (or rightful owner’s) consent.
Any artwork or art file that is modified or prepared for print by Queen City Tees, LLC is property of Queen City Tees, LLC.
BEST PRINT METHOD
We will always choose what we think is the best print method for your job unless you specify otherwise. If you (customer) chooses something other than a suggested print method or process Queen City Tees, LLC does not warranty or guarantee and item.
GARMENT SELECTION AND SUBJECTIVITY
We will always choose what we think are the best garment options for your project. If garment selection is sensitive, we strongly encourage ordering samples of the garments before placing an order. When the final order is received, we cannot guarantee that the customer will like the garments they chose. We do guarantee print quality at all times. We also will open our workspace to show customers samples of what we have in stock to aid the decision, but we cannot guarantee that every garment is in stock. Subjectivity, or whether or not the customer likes the garment they chose is the responsibility of the customer and not Queen City Tees, LLC. The customer is responsible for knowing the terms of the company whose garments they chose to purchase.
Queen City Tees, LLC is not responsible for mistakes or defects on behalf of the manufacturer or distributor: mislabeled sizes, inconsistent coloring, dye lots, manufacturer garment defects, etc. All garments will be counted in bulk (dozens, or however they are packaged by the manufacturer). We cannot inspect each garment or count them in individually. Manufacturer and distributor defects or mis-shipments will delay production until all garments are received. It is highly recommended to order more garments than needed for each size. All additional garments will be included in the print run and we will bill for what is printed.
CUSTOMER SUPPLIED GARMENTS
We require contract screen printing customers to provide us with a detailed list of garments including manufacturer, style number, color, size, and quantities of each to be printed prior to order confirmation. We may be unable or refuse to print on certain garments based on garment content. All contract work is subject to a 20% spoilage allowance including up to two single piece items under 200 pieces.
We do not offer in-house press checks.
MISTAKES AND MISPRINTS
In the event that we make a terrible error in printing your shirts, then we will reprint the order for you at no additional cost. We do not offer refunds. This rarely happens and really only applies to serious mistakes like printing the wrong art, printing the wrong location, or ordering the wrong color garments.
In this (and any printing industry), misprints happen. A screen could come out of registration, we may find a defect in the garment, the garment may come from a bad dye lot, etc. There are numerous things that could go wrong but we manage to keep misprints and defects well below 1% of all garments printed over the course of a year. This isn’t to say that your order will be guaranteed to have less than 1% misprints, this just happens to be our average. If we misprint a few of your garments then we will NOT charge you for these, and we’ll likely even throw them in with the order at no charge if they are passable. Since misprints can happen, we’d encourage you to order extra garments if you need exact quantities due to preorders or team member requests. For example, if you are ordering a single Extra Small garment for your kid, there is a chance that this garment becomes a misprint. It would be unreasonable for us to re-set up the screens just to print this single shirt, so it would be best order extra garments.
We try to minimize it, but misprints do happen and we cannot predict when. Please work with us and plan ahead.
Orders can either be picked up from Queen City Tees, LLC or shipped. If picking up, please come between 10am-12pm or 1pm-5pm (unless special plans are made prior).
Shipping is not included in estimates unless specified. Shipping time is not included in turnaround time. Outgoing shipment time/dates are not guaranteed in any way.
Once the shipment is handed over to the carrier, we cannot guarantee timeliness or exact delivery dates.
We do not ship internationally
We can split your order and ship to multiple locations, billable at current rates. Please let us know about the split shipment before we print and box your order, otherwise additional charges may apply.
RECEIVING YOUR ORDER
We encourage you to check the quantities and quality of the garments you receive from us immediately. Queen City Tees, LLC cannot be held accountable for defects or problems with your order unless contacted within 48 hours of delivery.
In the event an order needs to be cancelled, refunds or return of deposits will be based on the status of the order (i.e. Have the items been ordered? Have any of the items been printed? etc.) and may be subject to penalties and/or restocking charges. A minimum 20% restocking fee will apply. Any screens, artwork or preparation work charge will apply.
COLOR FIDELITY ON SPLIT/LINKED PRINTS
Because of the split print process, you may notice some minor color variations between the split locations. Our heat curing system can affect the dischargeability of a fabric, which can affect the appearance of the color of the second print even when we use the exact same ink throughout the process. While we can’t guarantee an exact match for both locations every time, we will absolutely try our best and hold ourselves to the same high quality standards we usually do.
Queen City Tees, LLC stands behind the quality of our screen printing. We will reproduce your graphic onto the garment with maximum accuracy, quality, and consistency. The satisfaction of the end user with the final printed product is subjective. We offer detailed mock-ups (approval by the customer is mandatory for every order), screen setup ($25 for each location/color), or pre production samples ($100 for each color printed or each screen setup) for end user review. We operate under very specific and numerous quality controls, standard operating procedures, and guidelines to ensure a quality finished product, and we will not be held responsible for end user subjectivity.
Terms and prices are subject to change without notice.
