Turnaround Time


Standard Order


Our standard turnaround time is 14 business days from the time that we receive your deposit and approval of artwork. “Standard Turnaround” applies to orders that do not have additional services included in the order. If your order has additional services please check with a representative for the current turnaround times. Uncommon Printing will not be held responsible for missing deadlines due to weather conditions, power interruptions, vendor shortages and errors, and shipping errors. If we experience any delays we will be sure to notify you immediately.


Rush Orders


Orders that require an in-hand date prior to our standard turnaround time are subject to rush fees. Rush fees vary by time frame and order quantity, check with a representative for current pricing. Rush orders are subject to the same over/under allowances as standard orders. Rush time frames are based on current production schedule and do not include shipping. Uncommon Printing will not be responsible for any shipping issues once product has left our facility.


Payment Terms


50% Down / Balance to Ship


Once a customer receives their quote they will have 30 days to submit a deposit. Once a deposit has been received their quote will be considered a submitted order. Turnaround time begins as soon as an order is submitted. The remaining balance is due prior to shipping or pick up.


Over/Under Run Allowance


Custom printing is an art, at Uncommon Printing we do our best to make sure this is done with the highest quality. However, mistakes do happen and for that reason, we have an over/under run allowance. All orders within the over/under run allowance will be considered acceptable for delivery. With this in mind, it is advised that you order a few extra garments for each size. Our over/under run allowance is 3% (rounded up to the nearest whole number).


Invoiced Quantity


Your final invoice will reflect the quantity shipped or picked up. This total quantity will fall within our over/under run allowance. For example, if you order 100 pieces your final invoiced quantity will be between 97 and 103 pieces.




Creation & Ownership


All artwork created is the sole property of Uncommon Printing. All design fees are for the labor and thought process to produce the artwork. If you would like to purchase the rights to artwork it can be done for an additional creation fee.


Art Preparation


Artwork not supplied in print ready format will be subject to and billed at our current rate. We will always provide an estimate before doing this type of work. Any art preparation work is a property of Uncommon Printing. Please note that any artwork submitted that is not created by Uncommon Printing is owned by you and/or it’s rightful owner. We will not reproduce your artwork without consent.



Art Approval


All artwork will be submitted to the customer for approval via an emailed digital mock-up. The customer is allowed one set of revisions to the mock-up free of charge before any additional art preparation fees are incurred. Uncommon Printing will not be responsible for any errors in an approved mock-up.




Out Of Stock


Uncommon Printing will not be responsible for items out of stock. We operate off of a order-by-order inventory model. We will do our best to provide you with accurate inventory prior to placing your order, but cannot “hold” product from the time we quote to the time you place the order. In the event that your product is out of stock we will do our best to find a replacement and get it approved before moving on with your order.


Garment Subjectivity


Uncommon Printing will not be responsible for you not liking the garment or printed artwork. We do our best to advise you on the product, but it is advised you do some research of your own as well. If there is any doubt of the product you can always order a sample (see below).






We require at least 25 garments per design.


Print Size


All shirt sizes in an order will be printed with the same image size. If you require a different image size for each shirt size it will be treated as a new order. Any image printed within 1’’ of a seam is subject to distortion, print imperfections and/or small inconsistencies. We will assume no responsibility for print imperfections due to printing close to seams.


Print Placement


We will do our best to print images consistently in the same location for all garments in the run. However there is a 3/4’’ standard deviation is all directions for print runs that will be considered “acceptable.”


Seam, Collar and Zipper Printing


We will do our best to print images however these placements are subject to distortion, print imperfections and/or small inconsistencies. These will all be considered acceptable and will not be treated as misprints.




Due to the nature of our inks and different fabric lots, we can not guarantee exact ink matches on reorders. We will do our best to match the original ink color as close as possible.


Ink Color & Pantone Matching


Due to the nature of our inks, we cannot guarantee exact Pantone matching. We cannot guarantee ink colors on visual mock-ups alone since monitors can vary slightly from one to the next. If you need to see the ink color on the shirt you can always order a sample (see below).


Ink Color Change Minimum


One ink change is allowed per design. Anything over two ink changes on one order will be considered an entirely new order.


Style Change Minimum


Garment style and/or color changes are allowed as long as minimum order quantity for that particular order is met.




Printed Sample Pricing

Printed samples are available. Pricing is $100 for the first color and $50 for each additional color. Please note that additional locations are considered additional colors. You will receive 3 garments (in your choice of sizing). If print artwork needs to be created or prepared you will be charged at the current rate.


Sample Credit


If an order for a full production run is submitted within 10 days of shipping your sample you will receive a credit in the amount of your sample cost. In order to receive full credit, there can be no changes to artwork and your sample credit value must be less than 10% of the full production runs value. Please note that any art fees incurred for the sample run do not count towards your sample credit.
