Additional Terms and Definitions:

 “Clients Risk”

Graphics on Shirts Limited deems any items supplied to be at the Clients Risk, in regards to not only security but also print quality and positioning. Graphics on Shirts Limited prefers to supply garments that are proven and from quality suppliers.

 “Acceptable use”

Graphics on Shirts Limited deems any time worn, washed or used as having enjoyed acceptable use, provided the garment does not fall apart due to manufacturing defects, however it is acknowledged that after a period of 15 – 20 days the garment is accepted and the user has had acceptable use. Outside of this period any branding or minor defects are deemed accepted and acceptable and any damage becomes difficult to investigate as garments are often subject to wear and tear by the wearer.

 “Acceptable variance”

Graphics on Shirts Limited deems any item not reported as being as being incorrect in regards to colour or fit as labelled as Acceptable if not reported within 15 – 20 days. Outside of this external factors such as fade, washing and wear can affect garments. Any branding that accurately portrays a companies colours and logo or message is considered Acceptable and Accepted if not reported, and agreed as being too far from approved visuals within 15-20 days is considered “Acceptable variance”. Any mistakes in spelling or incorrect colours should be reported before being handed out and will be repaired or replaced if reported and returned within 15-20 days, any time after this is deemed “Acceptable use”. 

Some minor colour variance between batches is deemed acceptable, please report any issues immediately and before wearing items so this can be discussed.

Minor colour variance betweens lots of branding is at times unavoidable, however when Pantone or Madeira colours are not supplied garments will be branded “From Screen” as screens do vary this may result in a difference between what you see and what you get, this is the reason we ask for Pantone Colours and without these this is considered “Acceptable variance”.

Artwork size and Positioning. Printing is a mechanical process, and involves heat. This can result in Positional, Size and Rotational Variances within a predetermined tolerance which varies from garment and branding types being deemed “Acceptable variance” Some minor shrinkage in drying is unavoidable, in particular with Polyester garments, in the instance of polyester this can affect size of both the garment and the print. The machines are setup with the neck and shoulders of the garment providing the positioning, any variance in the garment shape and size can cause the print positioning to change +/- 3 degrees in rotation is deemed “Acceptable variance”. A change in position of up to 5-10mm is deemed “Acceptable variance” in same style and size of garment. A larger positional change is to be expected across different garment types, particularly when seams are located close to print, this can result in variances that can exceed normal tolerances by as much as 5-10x being deemed “Acceptable variance”.

Printing onto supplied garments, especially garments not from our standard suppliers is at the “Clients Risk”. Items we do not normally supply will only ever be printed at the clients risk of bleed or print adherence. Shape and print consistency cannot be guaranteed and these are not subject to normal tolerances, all printing on these garments are at the Clients Risk”.

Garments already branded with logos such as Sports Brands or any other branding, are unsuitable for branding. Any additional branding will never line up exactly and any variance in the shirt shape particularly at the neck and shoulder will affect print positioning, as many Sports Brand logos will be branded when the garment is panels this can mean a larger than normal deviation will be considered “Acceptable variance”.

Mixed processes, when multiple branding methods are used such as Embroidery, Digital and Screen Printing these processes are done on different machinery and will never line up exactly, this can result in a “Acceptable variance” of as much as 5-10x standard “Acceptable variance”.

Garment or textile size, a small change of 3-5% in sizing is deemed an “Acceptable variance”. T-Shirts and Apparel can be slightly crooked and stretched. Polyester garments can and will shrink. Tea Towels can contain up to 3-5 imperfections such as colour threads “no longer than 5mm”, ladders, loose or inconsistent stitching, fluffy or rough patches and be deemed “Acceptable”, some variances in size and shape in between tea towels is impossible to control and deemed “Acceptable variance”.
