4. Copyright designs
4.1 Supplied designs – It is the client’s responsibility to gain authorization to use any copyrighted, trademarked or otherwise licensed material/ logos in their order. We will not be held liable for use of copyrighted, trademarked or otherwise licensed logos, designs or artwork in products supplied to your specifications.
4.2 Designs produced by ATHOS PALLAS P.C. – Any designs produced by us for you will remain our intellectual property and may not be used in any other form without our prior written consent.
4.3 Designs – We may occasionally use examples of custom printed and embroidered clothing we’ve previously produced in our brochures, websites, exhibitions and pitches. If you would prefer to opt-out or keep your relationship to us discreet, please let us know by clearly stating on your order or artwork approval.
The main order will be manufactured in the same way as the sample as closely as the production process allows, therefore approval of the sample for the main production run is equivalent to approval of the finished product. Any variations will be due to the varying nature of garments and will not be due grounds or reason to reject the finished product. Samples will only ever be guidelines for logo placements, colours and ink/thread coverages.
4.4 Returns – This is a bespoke manufacturing service whereby we manufacture one-of-a-kind goods to your specifications and therefore refunds and returns of goods are not possible. We will accept no returns of garments – blank or customised – for any reason, therefore we encourage customers to take care with the specifications and take care to understand the terms and conditions of their order. By signing off the job sheet and invoice you agree to pay for the goods listed and understand that no refund, replacement or compensation can be claimed for the goods once the order has been placed.
4.5 Availability – At times, stock-outs and shortages may occur between the times when availability was last checked (invoice) and the point where the stock is drawn down (payment) particularly if there is a delay in payment. In this instance, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and will look to offer replacements (this may affect the price, which will rise or fall accordingly, and may result in an issue of a further invoice to you or remittance advice from us) or we may offer to send the goods on shortly after. The rest of an order will proceed despite the stock-out and cannot be cancelled as a result of stock-outs. We will not be liable for any loss of earnings arising from stock-outs or from any delays in the production process. Any changes to an order will result in a new job sheet. Each new job sheet will supersede all earlier job sheets. Any changes to an order and job sheet that result in a rise in cost, will be re-invoiced to the customer and must be paid pro-forma before the order proceeds.
4.6 Order quantity – Upon placing an order you agree that the total quantity of goods delivered may be +/-5% to the order by size, color, style on receipt.
4.7 Turnaround Time – This is heavily dependent upon quantity of product required. You will be given a provisional completion date upon order confirmation, and an expected completion date once your signed-off enters the production process.
4.8 We are not liable for any loss or reimbursement as a result of the resolution, coloring or ink coverage not exactly matching the images provided.
4.9 Sizing –Due to the mix of mechanized and human manufacturing, there is some variance in garment sizing between identical products, occasionally up to an inch in each measurement. Size charts should be used as a guideline only. We are not responsible for any loss of earnings as a result of mis-ordered sizing or sizing variance.
4.10 Title – Full title in the Goods shall remain vested in us until we receive payment in full. We reserve the right to sell any reject goods unless specifically instructed by you not to at the order stage.
The Client shall inspect the Goods on delivery and shall within thirty (30) days notify the Manufacturer of any alleged defect, shortage in quantity, damage or failure to comply with the description or quote. The Client shall afford the Manufacturer an opportunity to inspect the Goods within a reasonable time following delivery if the Client believes the Goods are defective in any way. If the Client shall fail to comply with these provisions the Goods shall be presumed to be free from any defect or damage. For defective Goods, which the Manufacturer has agreed in writing that the Client is entitled to reject, the Manufacturer’s liability is limited to either (at the Manufacturer’s discretion) replacing the Goods or repairing the Goods.
Returns will only be accepted provided that:
(a) the Client has complied with the provisions of clause 8.1; and
(b) the Manufacturer has agreed in writing to accept the return of the Goods; and
(c) the Manufacturer will not be liable for Goods which have not been stored or used in a proper manner; and
