We allow for 0.75″ of variance on all screen printing impression placements and 0.2″ of variance on all sewing impression placements. Garments are hand-sewn during the manufacturing process which naturally creates inconsistencies from shirt to shirt. On top of that, garments are manually loaded by hand onto the printing press which creates more minor inconsistencies from garment to garment. This is all part of the organic nature of screen printing and cannot be modified.
Understanding Garment Loss:
Custom screen printing services are almost impossible to perform without some form of small error. Because of this, some garments might be damaged in the printing process. When garments are lost, you will be notified and immediately refunded for the missing garment(s). We strive to keep these issues to an absolute minimum to ensure your orders are fulfilled to the exact quantities requested.
Garment Condition Responsibility:
Bison will not be responsible for other vendor errors. If we receive goods from your vendors we will match them against your purchase order for quantity and size accuracy. By checking these garments, Bison is not accepting liability from your other vendors.
Bison will not be responsible for holes, dirt, or other damage already on the garments when they arrive at the Bison facility. If we discover issues with the garments, we will notify you, but we do not inspect garments for such damage.
Bison is not responsible for garments once they leave our facility. Shipping delays and package damage is the responsibility of the courier.
Once payment is received on your invoice we will order your garments right away. Any changes you want to make to the garments after payment are subject to a 20% restocking fee plus the cost of shipping them back to the supplier.
