  • ORDER CHANGES: Once your order is placed we begin working on it right away. Every person in our shop will be involved in your order at some point. Most of the time involved in your order is in the Pre-Production phase. Therefore, you may be subject to a $50 change fee in addition to the added cost involved such as (restocking fees, shipping expenses, screen fees, etc.) if you make any change to your order once it has been placed. If you have approved your proof(s) and screens have been burned for your order you will also be subject to a $35 screen fee per screen.

  •  PRINT/DECORATION PLACEMENT: There is no way to efficiently measure a distance from the collar on each tshirt as each garment is loaded. If you request a shirt that has the design 2″ down from the collar, we will use that as a guide and do our best to make sure all shirts hit that target. However, all shirts will not hit exactly 2″. They may be off as much as an inch in any direction. This will not be considered a misprint and we will not reprint or refund these shirts. Anything over an inch and a half from your desired placement will be considered for reprint. If no placement is requested we will use our opinion and standard specs to place design.
  • CLAIMS & REPRINTS: We go to great lengths to try and ensure every order that leaves our shop is accurate. All of our customers are valued customers regardless of size of order, and we want you to know that. Any order printed differently than approved proof will be granted a reprint of the defective product. All claims must be submitted within 72 hours of delivery date. Please call, stop in, or email to submit your claim. If any errors are the fault of Art Republic of Texas, Inc.  we will gladly accept responsibility and redo the items produced with errors. We do not offer refunds unless otherwise approved, but will redo any production errors that exceed the 3% spoilage rate. We do require you return the items with error. We will only replace the amount of items that are returned.
  • OUT OF STOCK ITEMS: Art Republic of Texas, will not be responsible for items that are out of stock. While we check items we know have potential stock issues, all garments are ordered after your order is placed and we cannot guarantee their availability. If items are out of stock we will provide you with replacements options and get your approval before choosing such replacement items.
