Orders must be paid in full prior to any work beginning unless other terms have been arranged. If you pay with a check, the turnaround time on your order begins once your check clears.
Turnaround time on your order with Stranger Print begins when payment terms are fulfilled and we have all of the art & specifications required to complete your order (all mock ups, high resolution artwork, working /correct tags, all fonts required for editable tags, all shipping info, pantone colors, ink types, and any other requested info etc.). Customer is solely responsible for delays in production if any of this info is not received by Stranger Prints. Our current turnaround time is 7-15 Business Days Average + Shipping (where applicable.) Complex orders, add-ons or changes in order specifications may increase turnaround times. Delay in approval of mock ups could also result in production delays. Any finishing service will add extra time to the turn around on orders, adding roughly 2 days per finishing to the turnaround time. The most up-to-date turnaround time will be listed on your quote and invoice.
If there is a deadline for your order, you must notify Stranger Prints when placing your order. A rush fee may apply and you will be notified before production begins. If Stranger Prints is not notified about a due date until after your order has been paid for and production initiated, we may not be able to accommodate your request. Any circumstances out of Stranger Prints’ control (ie: weather delays, shipping errors by the supplier, etc.) may also require more time and are not factored into the initial turnaround time estimate.
Files must be submitted in 300 DPI or vector format, as requested by Stranger Prints. Any designs with more than 1 color must be in vector format or a $75 per hour fee will be charged for preparation. Artwork must be sized prior to submitting the design to Stranger Prints or exact sizing must be submitted with your artwork. Text and fonts must be converted to outlines (or curves, depending on which software you use.) Our print service can only be as good as the artwork submitted. Stranger Prints will not be responsible for poor quality printing due to poor artwork. Stranger Prints is not responsible for any misspellings, errors, or issues in your art file. We do our best to catch these errors and point them out to you, but we may not catch them all. If it is in your art file and on your approval, that is how we will print it. If Stranger Prints is hired to complete artwork/designs, customer is responsible for specifying exact dimensions of the print and the exact placement on the garment.
Stranger Prints will do our best to submit a proof that most closely matches your specifications. Visual mockups are for preview purposes only. Actual scale on visual mockup may be disproportionate to the actual sizes listed. It is the customer’s responsibility to verify the actual size. Stranger Print always recommends ordering a sample of the work to be done if you are concerned about the layout or sizing at all.
Art Approval / Order Proofs :
It is the buyers responsibility to request and approve order proof or sample prior to proceeding with order. If customer chooses not to receive a printed sample or a photo of the job (via email or text message) Stranger Prints cannot be liable for errors missed by customer. We highly recommend ordering a sample if you are not sure how your garment will look in regards to placement, colors, artwork sizes, etc..
Out of stock items :
Stranger Prints is not responsible for items that are out of stock by suppliers and or distributors. We check and recommend items we know to not have potential stock issues (all garments are ordered after your order is placed) but we cannot guarantee their availability at time of order. If items are out of stock, we will provide you with a list of possible replacements and you must approve before we will order the replacement garments.
Hooded Sweatshirts/ Specialty Garment Printing :Although Stranger Prints has proper equipment available, inconsistencies may occur in registration and ink coverage when printing over the zipper, pockets or any other uneven surfaces. Stranger Prints will not be responsible for these inconsistencies.
Collar & Screen Printing :
Although Stranger Prints has the proper equipment available, inconsistencies may occur in registration and ink coverage when printing near or over the collar, seams, or any other edges. Any large prints may run the risk of going over the sleeve seam. These are all considered acceptable goods and will not be considered for reprints and or damages. Buyer accepts responsibility when submitting order.
Cancelled Orders Due To Buyer Mistake :
There is a $250 cancelled set up fee for any changes made to an order after work has been done. IE: Once a machine is set up and buyer requests to stop production there is a $250 cancellation fee to cover for the time spent mixing inks, preparing machines and garments as well as setting up machines.
Cancellations & Restocking Fees :
Cancellations made after order has been placed will be subject to a 15% restocking fee plus any additional fees required to cover services already rendered. No cancellations will be accepted once production or any manipulation of the garments (tag removal, printed tags, printing, hem tagging, etc.) has begun on the order.
Hard Deadlines & Rush Orders :
Stranger Prints will do everything we can to meet any hard deadlines, but we cannot guarantee it. Rush fees may apply. Customer is responsible for any expedited shipping charges associated with the order.
Holidays & Weekends :
Stranger Prints is closed on all national holidays and weekends and these days are not considered business days when counted in turnaround times.
Under Runs, Damages & Spoilage :
Due to the nature of this business, Stranger Prints will not be responsible for under-runs or spoilage up to 10% per design (spoilage must be more than 100 shirts per design for a reprint). Please keep this in mind when ordering (it is never a bad idea to order extras). We always do our best to get you what you ordered. We will refund you the cost of any items shorted from your order but will not process a reprint for less than 10% of your order (or 10 shirts minimum). As everything is done by hand, there is a 5% industry tolerance on placement, color, artwork size, etc.. There is also a 5% order tolerance due to damages and misprints.
Cancelled Checks :
There is a $50 returned / NSf check fee. Customer is responsible for the amount of the check plus the $50 fee. In the event of collections or non-payment, customer will agree to pay all legal fees associated with collecting owed funds.
Stranger Prints reserves the right to change pricing without notice.
Garment Disclaimer :
Stranger Prints is not responsible for manufacturer defects such as color inconsistencies, stitching errors, mislabeled garments, loose/inconsistent stitching, and/or garment defects (holes in garments, ripped seams, etc.). We try our hardest to inspect the garments as we print them, but we cannot guarantee each garment. We are not the manufacturers of these garments, so we cannot ensure their construction. We highly recommend ordering 5%-10% extra of each size if an exact count is important.
Some manufacturers over-dye their garments. Over-dying is the process of re-dying a garment after its initial manufacturing period. This is done for any number of reasons, including color correction, clearing out of colors that didn’t sell (purple shirts aren’t selling so the manufacturer dyes them black to sell them as black shirts), etc. Because of this factor, Stranger Prints cannot 100% guarantee exact color consistency on coloring with discharge printing or discharge based services, or with other specialty print services. This is most noticeable on white ink prints (showing a slight off white tinge), but can sometimes be seen with other colors. If you are concerned about the possibility of over-dying on a garment you are interested in or would like more information or alternate print methods, please contact us prior to submitting an order. We will be glad to provide you with any information that may help you avoid this issue.
If a garment is provided or ordered Stranger Prints cannot be held responsible for how the garment is effected by the print. Many light weight fabrics should be tested prior to running full production and a sample should be ordered to see how these garments will print. We cannot be held responsible for prints showing through the back on label prints due to light weight fabrics.
