Our standard turnaround time is currently 14 business days from the time that we have an approved quote and artwork files submitted by the client. The term “standard turnaround” refers to orders which are our standard prints and don’t include additional services on the order. Some of our services and printing methods will add to the standard turnaround time. Please contct us for the latest turnaround time for each service. If you have a specific deadline (see In-Hands Date below) that you need to have met, please notify us when placing your order. Taking more than 24 hours for approvals can add to your turnaround time. Rush Fees may apply to orders needing a quicker turnaround time than what our standard turnaround time offers. Stemp will not be held responsible for missing deadlines due to weather conditions, power supply interruptions, vendor shortages and errors, shipping errors, or any acts of God. If we expect or foresee any problems in advanced, we will be sure to notify you and work with you to rectify them.
Half Down in Advance: Half of the balance due is required to get your order into production. The remainder is then due at the time of pickup.
Net Terms: Orders with Net Terms (generally either Net 15) can simply approve the order without payment up front. The invoice date and Net Term's start date is generally the day your order is shipped or read for pickup. A final invoice will be emailed to you. Orders with Net Terms must be paid with cash, check or money order; credit cards and PayPal are not accepted for Net Terms orders.
Orders that require an in-hands date sooner than our standard turnaround time are subject to additional charges. Below is the rush fee percentage schedule which indicates the percentage amount to be added to the order total, based on how many days are being cut out of our specified turnaround time. If you need it in a rush, and your in-hands date is 3 days earlier than our standard turnaround time for your order, 30% of the total order will be added as a rush fee.
13 Day: 10%
12 Days: 20%
11 Days: 30%
10 Days: 40%
9 Days: 50%
8 Days: 60%

Rush time frames are based on our current production schedule and do not include shipping time. The Print Wearhouse will not be held responsible for shipping issues once your order has left our facility.
Artwork Creation & Ownership
All artwork created by The Print Wearhouse is the sole property of The Print Wearhouse. If you hire us to create artwork for you, you are strictly paying for the labor and thought process to produce the artwork. You are not paying for the ownership and rights of the artwork. Rights to the artwork can be purchased in addition to the creation fees.
Any artwork you submit to us for printing, that is not being created by The Print Wearhouse, is owned by you or its rightful owner, not The Print Wearhouse. We will not reproduce your artwork, trademarked or not, without you or the rightful owner’s consent.
Art not supplied in print ready format, as specified in our File Prep section, is subject to be charged at our current rate. We will always give you an estimate before doing this work. Any art preparation done is the property of Stemp. For example, if you supply artwork for your order which incurs a $150 charge for separations on your 6 color simulated process print, you do not own the separated art file. That separated file is the property of Stemp, although the artwork itself, is still your property.
All artwork must be approved via an emailed digital mockup. Upon receiving your initial mockup, you will be allowed one additional set of revisions free of charge. Any additional revisions past that point will incur an additional Art Preparation fee to be billed at our current rate. Changes to the artwork after approving the mockup could increase turnaround times for your orders. We will not be responsible for errors, misspelling, or otherwise in approved digital mockups and artwork.
GARMENTS, BLANKS SHIRTS & PIECES
Out of Stock Items
The Print Wearhouse will not be responsible for items that are out of stock. All purchasing of product is done on an orderbyorder basis. Very few goods are stocked at our facilities. We do our best to provide you with an accurate inventory prior to your order being placed, but we cannot “hold” goods from the time you receive a quote to the time you actually place the order. Should items become out of stock, we will do our best to find a replacement and get it approved by you prior to using it for your order.
The Print Wearhouse will not be responsible for you not liking the garment printed on or the printed artwork. We do our very best to make sure you have selected a garment that you will expect and matches your needs, but we also expect you to do some research on your own. We do our best to provide garment size specs for each product listed on our website. If size specs are not listed on our site, we recommend you confirm and verify them on the manufacturers' site to ensure the garment is going to fit as you intend. If there's any doubt about whether you'll like the selected garment, we recommend ordering a blank sample first. Please keep in mind that ordering blank samples will push back the turnaround time. Blank samples are available for purchase.
Our Standard Min. Qty is below:
Screenprinting: 50 items
Embroidery: 50 items
Some decoration types and products may have additional min. quantities. Please contact us for the most accurate minimums.
All shirt sizes in an order will be printed with the same image size unless otherwise requested. Different image sizes being printed on different shirt sizes will be treated as a new order and priced as such. An image size printed within 1 inch of any seam is subject to distortion, print imperfections, and/or other small inconsistencies. These are all considered acceptable goods. We will not assume responsibility for print imperfections due to printing too closely to seams.
Seam, Collar and Zipper Printing
We do our very best to produce the best looking prints anytime we pull a squeegee. However, printing on or over any seams, collars, pockets, zippers or otherwise is subject to distortion, print imperfections, and/or other small inconsistencies. These are all considered acceptable goods and will not be considered misprints.
Since water based and discharge inks actually dye fabric and are not plastic inks sitting on top of the shirt, we will not be responsible for fading or weathering of goods. Once a print leaves our facility, we are not in control of the elements a print will endure, such as wash temperature, abrasiveness, soaps and chemicals, etc. and therefore can not guarantee the wash down and weathering of the product.
We print with the highest quality products and equipment available for water based and discharge ink and have scores of ecstatic clients because of such. We take great pride in the quality of our work. That being said, very small amounts of washdown on ink colors should be expected with each additional wash since fabric will fade with additional washing.
In order to ensure image longevity and vibrancy, we recommend “machine wash cold, tumble dry low” for all water based and discharge ink prints. Foil prints should be washing inside out and line dried. All goods should be washed before wearing, especially allover prints.
Prior to a first wash, it is completely normal to feel a slight “hand” with discharge ink on the shirt. Once the shirt has been washed, this feeling generally goes away and the hand is very soft and smooth. If specialty or high opacity inks are requested, the hand can vary and be more apparent.
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. For example, if a request is made for an image to be printed 2” below the bottom of a collar, a 3/4” standard deviation in either direction will be considered acceptable. If a request is made for images to be printed near the tag area on the back of the shirt and directly over the tag, it could have small ink coverage inconsistencies and will be considered acceptable.
Reorder Ink Color
Due to the nature of water based and discharge ink and different fabric lots, we cannot guarantee exact ink color matches on reorders. We will make every effort to match the original color as best as possible. If you know a reorder will be likely, please let us know and we’ll try to keep ink on hand if at all possible.
Ink Color & Pantone Matching
We always do our very vest to match the ink color or pantone number you select as close os posible. Due to the nature of water based and discharge inks, we cannot guarantee requested Pantone colors on these types of prints.Becuase of variations in computer monitors, we cannot guarantee ink colors based on visual mockups alone. We recommend checking the colors given against a Pantone book. Monitors can vary significantly from one computer to the next. Please check a Pantone book for color accuracy. Pantone books can be purchased from Amazon.com.
Ink Color Change Minimums
Ink Colors changes are allowed for additional fees.
Style Change Minimums
Garment style or garment color changes are allowed as long as the minimum order quantity for that particular order is reached

Custom vs Contract Orders
