1.1 ARTOPRINT Return Policy
We are proud of the level of quality we produce across all of our printing avenues. Having said that, we are only human and every once in a while we might have a printing hiccup or miss a manufacturing error in a garment. On the very odd occasion that this happens we are happy to reprint your item. Before we can do that though there are a few steps you need to take. Firstly, read the all important ‘What can be Returned’ list to determine whether or not your item is indeed returnable:

What can be returned?
Returns are only accepted if within 14 days of receipt of purchase
Only damaged/faulty garments, or faulty prints can be returned/exchanged
Please note all returns must be in original packaging and have no noticeable signs of wear or makeup stains
Note: Shipping fee's are non refundable.

Sadly, we can not accept returns or refunds for:
Change of mind
Spelling, punctuation or grammatical errors made by the customer
Shipping or stock delays
Unsatisfaction with different colours profiles between different garments 
Incorrect product selection by user - it is the responsibility of the customer to check size charts, style, garment thickness and colours before confirming and paying for their order online.
Design errors introduced by the customer in the design process
Variances in the garment size of +/- 2.5 cm (supplier allowance)
Choosing wrong size (if you have any doubt regarding sizes please call us or email us immediately before we start to process the order)
Unsatisfaction with print size - remember that the mockup garment you are designing on represents a full size range, so be sure to measure out your print size on one of your own tees before uploading it to the design tool to ensure you are happy with how big it is going to print 
Inferior quality or low resolution of uploaded images

Order Cancellation
All orders are customised, once we start the processes to get your order ready we will not be able to cancel. If you feel you have made a mistake or want to cancel your order please call us asap after you have placed your order. If we have not started our processes we will make a full refund.

The difference between printing on white garments and coloured garments: 
In order to be able to print on a coloured garment, we first have to spray the garment with a pre treatment solution that allows the white ink something to stick to.  We then lay down a nice thick layer of white ink, followed by the colour layer.  Because of this, colours do tend to look much brighter than when printing on a white garment.  When we print on a white garment, the material absorbs the ink which means it loses a little bit of the vibrancy.  Please ensure you call our sales team to discuss these differences and request samples before placing a larger order.  

The difference between our screen and your screen:
Now is a good time to point out that everyone’s monitors are different, which means that there are going to be small differences in the colours that you see on your screen and what our team is looking at.  In the same way there is going to be a variation in what you see on screen to the actual garment or print colour.  For this reason please allow a 10% variation on both prints and garments, as well as a 10% difference in the print size.

It is also important to note all orders placed via the online store are digitally printed, and that there is a difference in the finished product of a screen printed garment, and a digitally printed garment.  Digital printing utilises water based inks that are cured directly into the material of the garment, rather than sitting on top.  Due to this, digital printing is not as vibrant as screen printing and does not last as long. Digitally printed garments will begin to fade within the first few washes and continue to fade over time.  Digital printing is an excellent way to print a sample of a larger screen print order, as it will help to determine the position and size of your artwork.  It is important to remember that it is not possible to replicate the vibrancy, and density of a screen print using our direct to garment inks.  

Please examine your designs carefully and correct any mistakes prior to placing your order. In an effort to keep costs down and pass substantial savings along to our customers, ARTOPRINT does not proof documents created by its customers prior to processing.  When in doubt, call us ...we're super friendly and helpful.  

*Please note all returns must comply with ARTOPRINT’S user agreement.

**Important notes and tips on garment selection:
To keep things simple we have chosen AScolour our Major clothing brand and Ramo.   

 

AS Colour: These guys are the best in terms of print quality, garment variety and garment quality.  AS Colour garments are manufactured using a soft bushed cotton which creates a super smooth print surface.  The smoother the print surface, the smoother the print.  They are the most forward thinking brand with new 'on trend' colours and style.

Ramo: It's a happy medium between price and quality and they have a sweet range of styles available.  Ramo has a huge colour range in their modern fit tees which is great for those wanting to colour match a garment.    

We do sell most local brands and products from JB’sWear, Winning spirit etc. and can get in any product listed with them. Please call us to discuss.
