Terms

Any approved order received after 12 P.M.

All goods must be in house two business days prior to scheduled production date to avoid delays.

Artwork

We require vector files for print-ready artwork, preferably Adobe Illustrator or a vector .PDF file. Any raster images submitted must be 300 dpi and may be subject to a file handling fee. When submitting print ready vector files please be sure to outline fonts and embed images rather than linking them.  Free Pantone matching available within 90% variance.  Art proofs normally received within two business days of purchase order submission.  Any errors in design are the sole responsibility of the customer and will be printed exactly as approved.

Art Approval | Order Proofing

All artwork is to be approved via a digital mock-up through email. Artwork must be checked for spelling, color, sizes ordered, placement of the art and accuracy of artwork by the customer. It is very important to look over every detail of the mockup, as this is how your garments will print. My Smart Shirt will not accept responsibility for corrections not implemented and/or requested after artwork approval. Any modifications requested after customer approval will result in production delays and could require additional expenses. Any delays in the approval process longer than 24 hours after receipt of the mockup could result in production delays.

Garment Disclaimers

GARMENT REACTION TO HEAT – Garments may shrink slightly when exposed to heat during the ink curing process. In addition, some brands of garments tags will curl and shrink when exposed to heat. This is a risk inherent in the nature of the materials when exposed to heat that My Smart Shirt cannot take responsibility for or control. My Smart Shirt also cannot be held responsible for any resulting imprint shrinkage due to this issue. (Including 3D Puff Prints)

DYE MIGRATION WARNING – Polyester, Nylon, Pigment Dyed, Dye Sublimated fabric, Dye Migration occurs when the dye in the fabric of the garment sublimates and turns into a colored gas. It will then try to escape the garment and can get stuck in the ink that is applied on the garment. It will slowly permeate through and can discolor the ink slightly or completely depending on the garment itself as well as the print process. Darker colored garments are more likely to migrate (red, blue, black, etc.) Dye migration can appear hours or weeks after the ink is cured. My Smart Shirt uses polyester inks and additives as well as barrier base inks to attempt to lower the chance of dye migration. However, My Smart Shirt cannot control dye migration and the customer must accept the risk of dye migration when printing on these types of materials.

We want you to totally love My Smart Shirt so give us a call, email or send a carrier pigeon with any questions you have about your order. Any order printed differently than the mock-up approved will be granted a reprint of the defective product. If you have any issues with your order such as misprinting claims must be made within 72 hours from receipt of merchandise/order.
