Out of Stock Items
On occasion, our vendors may run out of particular style or color in a certain brand. If this occurs we have a variety of product substitutes available from alternate vendors. Pricing may vary with vendor. If you choose to wait for the item to come back in stock, day one of production begins the day the blank items are received. If you choose to wait for the inventory to be replenished then 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. We reserve the right to substitute garments of comparable brand and/or color when the customer’s request is unavailable to fulfill orders.
Overruns or Under-Runs
Screen printing is an art form, and we do our very best to deliver, at minimum, the ordered quantity for each and every size on your order. However, printing mistakes happen, screens can breakdown during production or shirts may arrive with stains or holes from the manufacturer. For that reason, we have an under/over run allowance. This is simply an acceptable margin of error. Under-runs are not to exceed the industry standard of 3% and will not be reproduced at a later date free of charge. All orders within the Under/Over Run Allowance of the ordered quantity will be considered acceptable for delivery. For this reason, we highly recommend you order extra garments for each size.
Pork Chop Screen Printing will not be responsible for profit loss on underruns. If requested, in the event of an under run greater than our Under/Over Run Allowance, we will reprint the remaining quantity or an appropriate credit will be made for the under amount.
Check Your Order !!!
We encourage you to check the quantity and quality of your order immediately. Pork Chop Screen Printing will not be held responsible for problems with your order unless we are notified of the issue within 72 hours of delivery or pick up.
In the event of a breach by seller, claims for defects, damages or shortages (not related to transportation), must be made in writing by the buyer within 72 hours after delivery or pick up. Claims must specify in detail the objections of the buyer. Failure to make such a timely claim shall constitute complete and irrevocable acceptance of refund or return for any reason.
After you notify us in writing, you may be offered a refund, reprint or store credit. All corrections are time sensitive from the date offered.
- In the case of a refund: you must approve refund offers in writing within 15 days or the refund will expire. We will NOT issue a refund without your written approval. Once your refund has expired, we will not issue it at a later date.
- In the case of return: items must be in their original condition (unused, unwashed, unaltered) and in full quantities, within 15 days after claim. Once your return is received, counted and inspected, we will send you an email to notify you that we have received your returned items, and notify you what we will replace in full or in part.
- If store credit is offered: it must be accepted within 15 days in writing and is good to up to one year from date offered. Store credit is applied to subsequent orders and is not a refund or reprint.
In no event shall seller be liable for special or consequential damages, including profits lost, whether or not caused by or resulting from seller’s negligence.
Mistakes and Misprints
In the event that Pork Chop Screen Printing is responsible for a mistake in order production or fulfillment, the misprinted items can be reprinted at no additional cost if we are notified within 72 hours in writing and thereafter determined as a misprint by us.
Misprinted items must be returned in their original condition (unused, unwashed, unaltered) in full quantities, within 15 days of claim to be replaced. Failure to make such a timely claim shall constitute complete and irrevocable acceptance of return for any reason.
The Company shall incur no liability for any errors not corrected by the Customer where the Customer has been provided with proofs. Where the Customer specifically waives any requirement to examine proofs, the Company is indemnified by the Customer against any and all errors in the finished Work.
Printing Process Variations
All reasonable efforts will be made by Pork Chop Screen Printing to obtain the best possible color reproduction onto the garments but variation is inherent in the printing process and it is understood and accepted as reasonable that Pork Chop Screen Printing shall not be required to guarantee an exact match in color or texture between the Customers photograph, transparency, proof, Electronic File, Print Ready File, previously printed matter (whether printed by the Company or by a third party) or any other materials supplied by the Customer and the finished Work. Where the art is produced using full color printing (also known as process color or CMYK printing) it is accepted and understood that Pantone colors (also known as spot colors) shall not be accurately reproduced due to the inherent nature of the printing process.
Color Matching Ink Colors
While every effort is made to reproduce an imprint just as the artwork, variations in ink, computer monitors, printers and printing processes make it impossible for us to guarantee exact color representation and consistency. color matching is available upon request. PMS matching is only a guideline. Due to the differences between paper and textiles or other substrates, this is not guaranteed.
If you desire a specific color match, please specify the color by providing either a physical sample or providing us with a Pantone number.
Image Placement and Sizing
We will do everything we can to ensure images are printed in a consistent location on all garments within a run. However, small variations should be expected. A 3/4” standard deviation in either direction will be considered an acceptable variance.
If you do not provide exact measurements in inches, sizing is subject to the printers interpretation based on the mock up, description, and/or image of size provided. We will not replace items miss sized if not specified in advance and interpreted differently than imagined by customer.
Unless requested, we will print one size graphic on all items (from the smallest to the largest garments). Differently sized images, even if the same, are as separate screen set ups and are subject to the minimums for printing and pricing individually.
All color separations are done by Pork Chop Screen Printing for printing purposes. High resolution art files (300 DPI or higher) that can be opened in Photoshop or Illustrator are ideal. Artwork should be sized to your intended print size. Provide pantone numbers (except white or black) or Pork Chop Screen Printing will extract them from your provided file.
We accept email, drop box, google drive file links, ftp, and flash drives. For hand drawn art please contact us.
Art not supplied in print ready format, as specified in our artwork requirements section, is subject to be billed at our current rate. We will always give you an estimate before doing this work. Any art preparation done is the property of Pork Chop Screen Printing, you do not own the separated art file. That separated art file is the property of Pork Chop Screen Printing, although the artwork itself, is still your property.
All artwork must be approved via an emailed digital mockup or signed physical copies of proofs. Proofs are used to ensure the accuracy of a print job and the order details. Pork Chop Screen Printing requires receipt of a signed copy, or an emailed digital approval of each job’s proof. We will not be responsible for errors, misspelling, or otherwise in approved digital mockups and artwork.
Customer Supplied Garments
Goods on which printing is to be done and furnished by buyer shall be properly prepared, (free from plastic packaging, dirt or torn fabric) and of proper quality for printing requirements. Additional costs due to delays or impaired production because of improper packing or quality of goods furnished by buyer shall be charged to buyer at prevailing shop rates. Any goods supplied by buyer are at his risk based on differences in wash fastness and absorption qualities of fibers. Any garments supplied by buyer shall be imprinted at buyer’s risk.
Please note that not all garments have a surface texture and size suitable for screen printing, we may reject items not suitable for printing. Send your customer supplied garments at your own risk! Pork Chop Screen Printing will not be responsible for misprints on customer supplied garments or replacement of items thereof. Pork Chop Screen Printing will only replace misprinted garments that we decide are truly “misprinted” and purchased as blanks through Pork Chop Screen Printing.
Pork Chop Screen Printing is not responsible for manufacturer defects such as garment color inconsistencies, mislabeled sizes, bad stitching, or other garment defects. We do our best to try to inspect the garments as they are printed, but we cannot guarantee each garment. We do not refund or discount items based on the quality of garments we have printed. We highly recommend ordering 5% extra of each size to avoid the possibility of manufacturer defects causing issues with your needed quantities.
Due to market conditions and manufacturer garment mill variances beyond the seller’s control, seller cannot guarantee consistency of dye colors throughout an individual order or from one order to the next. Variations in computer monitors make it impossible for us to guarantee exact color representation of garments from ordered online vendors.
We are not responsible for dye migration that may happen with some tee shirt lots, it will appear as discolored or mismatched ink. Dye migration is the movement of dye from a dyed material (the threads in a t-shirt) to another material in contact with that shirt (ink used in screen printing).
Seam, Collar and Zipper Printing
We do our very best to produce the best looking prints anytime we print. However, printing on or over any seams, collars, pockets, zippers or otherwise is subject to distortion, print imperfections, and/or other small inconsistencies.
An image printed within 1 inch of any seam is subject to distortion, print imperfections, and/or other small inconsistencies. These are all considered acceptable goods and will not be considered misprints. We will not assume responsibility for print imperfections due to printing too closely to seams.
We will not be responsible for fading or weathering of goods. Once a print leaves the shop, we are not in control of the elements a print will endure, such as wash temperature, abrasiveness, soaps and chemicals, etc. In order to ensure image longevity and vibrancy, we recommend “machine wash cold, inside out, and line dry (preferable) or tumble dry low” for all imprints.
Screen Setup Fees
Payment of setup fees does not include the purchase of a screen. Screens are property of Pork Chop and are reclaimed and reused after printing your job.
Reorders and Art on File
We reclaim screens immediately after of printing but keep digital separation files and physical films in our records for future use. We may request new art files if orders are older than 1 year old.
Reorders are subject to standard print minimums and screen set up fees. Please visit the FAQ page for order minimums.
We require approval of art work for all orders, including reorders, and not be responsible for errors, misspelling, or otherwise in approved digital mockups and artwork.
Unless other arrangements have been made, all jobs will be shipped in bulk packaging. Individual bagging, tagging, sorting, labeling, and folding are available upon request. Additional fees apply.
Shipping is not included, if you require shipping please let us know when putting your order in and we will add the cost to your quote.
You will be provided with a tracking number when the items are placed in the mail. Pork Chop Screen Printing will not be responsible for any damaged, lost, or stolen packages.
Any remake due to damaged, lost or stolen packages, will be the responsibility of the customer, unless shipment is fully insured and the replacement items are purchased again by the shipping company. To insure your order shipment, please inquire prior to placing your order for a “Insured Shipping Rate”.
You agree to defend, indemnify and hold harmless Pork Chop Screen Printing from and against any and all claims, damages, costs and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising from or related to your use of artwork. You also certify that you own the rights to or have a license to use the image(s) being imprinted as part of your order.
