Printing Policy

Turnaround

Our typical turnaround time is 7 to 14 business days. Some orders may take longer. Turnaround time begins when your invoice has been paid in full and proof approval has been received. XyayX will not be responsible for missed deadlines due to weather conditions, power interruptions, back-orders or errors from distributors, shipping errors or anything else outside our control. If we expect or foresee any problems, we will inform you of the problem and work with you to reach a solution.

Submitting Artwork

Please read our Artwork Guidelines page before submitting your artwork. Knowing what and how to submit will speed up your turnaround time. Art not supplied in print ready format as specified is subject to art prep fees at our current rate. We will not be responsible for misspellings or errors in artwork after the final proof is approved.

Artwork Creation and Ownership

Any and all artwork designed by XyayX is our sole property. If you ask us to create a design for you, the cost includes the labor and skill to produce the piece, not the ownership and rights to said artwork. Ownership rights can be purchased in addition to the design fees.

Artwork submitted by you, which we are not creating, just printing, is not owned by XyayX but you or it’s rightful owner. We will never reproduce your artwork without your consent. Additionally, we will not reproduce anyone else’s intellectual, copyrighted or trademarked property without the rightful owner’s consent.

By submitting any artwork/logos you agree that you have full permission to use and reproduce the artwork. XyayX will not be held responsible for any illegal wrong doings. We do not support copyright infringement.

Payment

Due to our faster than usual turnaround time, we require full up-front payment on every order. This speeds processing and eases delivery /pick-up without the need to make a second payment to us when your shirts are ready.

Social Media

We love to print and are excited to show off the work we do for you! Pictures are often taken during production and after the prints are complete. We post them on sites like Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. It’s a great way to show our skills and to spread awareness of your brand. If you’re not comfortable with your project being photographed and shared, please let us know while placing your order. No notification will constitute your full permission to post a photo of your shirt(s).

Out of Stock Items

Full Color Prints LLC will not be responsible for items that are out of stock. We do our best to inform you of accurate inventory levels at consultation. Unfortunately, stock levels can fluctuate very quickly and the shirt that was in stock yesterday, may be out of stock today. We will let you know right away if an item is backordered and offer alternates if need be. We do not print incomplete orders, meaning if half of your order comes in but the rest is backordered, we will not print the shirts that arrived early and the rest once they come in. We will either wait for the arrival of your complete order or credit your account for the missing pieces. When you choose to wait for backordered items, turnaround will start once the backordered items arrive to our warehouse.

Print Sizes

Every shirt in your order will have the same image size. Even if there are both men’s and women’s sizes in the order, unless otherwise requested. Each different image size will be treated as a new order and priced as such. An image which is printed within 1.5 inches of any seam is subject to distortion or print deflection. These inconsistencies are likely to happen when a large image is printed on a small garment and is considered acceptable. We will not be responsible for print imperfections due to images that lay too close to the seams.

Printing Over Zippers, Collars or Seams

Due to the uneven nature of seams, collars or zippers, printing inconsistencies and/or distortions are normal. Items printed over seams, collars or zippers with inconsistencies are considered acceptable and are not misprints.

Care Instructions

To ensure longevity of your print and image vibrancy, we always recommend machine washing your shirts in cold water and tumble drying on low heat.

You should expect a small amount of fading with water based or discharge prints. Because they are basically dyed fabrics, the printing will fade along with the fabric after repeat washings. This is not a print defect.

Hand

Prior to washing, it is totally normal to feel discharge inks on the shirt’s surface. After the first wash, this generally goes away leaving the shirt with a smooth no-hand feel. However, some specialty or high opacity inks may leave a texture behind. We cannot guarantee a completely no-hand feel.

Placement

While printing, we do our best to ensure designs are printed in consistent locations on all shirts in the run. However, small variations should be expected. All garments are sewn differently and variations in each individual shirt may result in slightly varied placements. A 1″ allowance in any direction off the proofed location is considered acceptable. If the desired print location is near a seam or a collar, these variances may be more noticeable. XyayX will not be responsible for print location variances within the 1″ allotment.

 

Color Matching and Reorders

We cannot guarantee an exact color match on your reorders. We do our very best to get the color matched as close as possible. If you know you’ll need to reorder beforehand, let us know and we’ll try to keep your ink if possible. If a certain color is needed before the start of a job, please request a Pantone color match. (additional cost) Due to the unreliability of matching fabric colors and ink colors by computer monitors we can not guarantee a color to look exactly how it it looks on screen. If you need a sample, please request it so that there are no misunderstandings. Mockups are only intended to get a general feel for what the end product will look like. We do our best to get it as close to the mock up as possible.

 

Manufacturer Defects

XyayX will not be held responsible for manufacturer defects such as mislabeled sizes, color inconsistencies, re-dyes resulting in discolored discharge prints, loose stitching and other garment defects. We inspect each shirt while printing but cannot guarantee the quality of each garment. If exact numbers are required, we highly recommend ordering 5% extra of each size.

Customer Supplied Goods

We do print on customer supplied goods if customer is aware and ok with the fact that there is a chance that an item/items can be ruined or misprinted and we will not be responsible for replacing any items.

 

Printed Samples

If you want to get a sample you will be charged a premium that will be credited to the final order if accepted. If you do not follow through with an order then the high premium charges will apply.

 

Subjectivity

XyayX will not be responsible if you do not like the look or fit of a garment and/or the artwork printed on it. We will work closely with you to make sure the garment selected fits your needs and meets your expectations. However, we expect each client to do some research of their own. Full garment specs are always available to you. If you are unsure of a product’s look or sizing, we suggest ordering a blank sample prior to production. Please note that samples will delay turnaround times.

 

Print Guarantee

We completely stand behind our work. Please check your order carefully and notify us of any problems within 24 hours of delivery. If, for any reason, we made a mistake printing your order and it is not as agreed upon in your emailed proof approval and falls outside these terms & conditions, we will gladly reprint your order within 10 working days. We will not be responsible for errors found after 24 hours or errors completed by you the customer. We do not offer refunds.

Pricing

XyayX reserves the right to change our pricing at any time and without notice.

 

Shipping

We ship via UPS. Once your order ships, you will receive a tracking number within 24 hours. XyayX will not be responsible for transit time estimates, undeliverable addresses, shipping errors, bad weather or other problems with transit. Transit time is not included in turnaround time. Please account for transit time when placing your order. Shipping expenses are the client’s responsibility and will be added to the invoice prior to payment except in special circumstances. Insurance is always available at an extra cost (depending on the order value) and must be requested prior to invoicing. Insurance may not be included in your quote if it is not previously requested. XyayX assumes no responsibility for goods once they leave our warehouse.

Packaging

Garments will be bulk folded and packaged in boxes.

Cancellation

Orders canceled after proof approval but before production are subject to a 15% restocking fee (based on order value) plus any other fees incurred. Once production has begun and shirts have been printed, cancellations are not accepted.

 

Returned Checks

There is a $30 charge for all returned checks. If a check is returned, all payments thereafter will need to be made with cash or cashier’s check.
