The Thread Studio UK Ltd Terms & Conditions (December 2022)
A copy of our T&C’s will be linked to your quote/invoice. By agreeing to pay for your order you are agreeing to our terms and conditions as set out here.
Once your order is confirmed and payment is received your order is booked into production. Any additional items or branding will be issued as a new order. Additions to current orders are at the discretion of The Thread Studio staff and can incur costs. You must confirm the visual of the logo in writing before production starts. New logos are sent for confirmation 1-2 working days from order.
We generally work to a 2-week (10 working days, not including weekends & bank holidays) lead time. In the summer, Festive season or if the order is of a certain size this may vary, but this will be confirmed when placing the order. You will be notified if there is a stock shortage of any of the items in your order, these shortages are out of our control. We use 4 of the largest distributors in the country.
If there is an issue with stock, we will offer an alternative item, or you have the option of waiting on restocking. We will, to the best of our knowledge confirm an approx. date for restocking.
If you need your order urgently, please let us know the deadline date when ordering. Where possible we will accommodate this. An express charge of 25% will apply. Please remember that express order will be dependent on stock availability unless your order is a customer supply item only order.
We do offer a ‘customer supplied’ service for both embroidery and print (this excludes screen printing) where we will brand your supplied items. Please be aware that not all items can be branded and will need to be confirmed before your order is placed & signed off. All items supplied by customers are done so at their ‘own risk’. We take great care with customer supplied items but are not liable for any damage or loss arising from customer supplied items orders. Please also understand that we will need to do a test on your items to confirm that the branding method will work. The Thread Studio cannot guarantee the performance of the garment after branding. Our aim is to return your items in perfect condition with the perfect branding.
We reserve the right to refuse garments we deem unsuitable for branding on inspection of customer supplied clothing. Any production costs involved with the order before the supply of goods will be chargeable i.e., file setups/ artworking. For Pricing Click Here
