The following policies must be met in order to carry and/or continue carrying our products. These policies are here to protect ours and our customers' brands. Please read in its entirety.
The required opening order is $500 and MUST be met in order for your order to be processed. If an opening order is placed without meeting the required minimum amount, you will be contacted to add products to meet the minimum. If the order is not brought to the minimum amount or no response is received and the order is canceled, a 20% restocking fee will be charged and your account will be suspended.
There is no monetary minimum for reorders. However, all orders must meet our required per product MOQ, which can be found in the product description. ALL MOQs must be met on EVERY product. We keep the MOQs low so we will not allow these to be broken. MOQ requirements are listed with each product. Graphic tees are open pack sizing with an MOQ of 6 per design. If we see that an MOQ is not met we will reach out, this will put a hold on your order until all MOQ are met, if we do not receive a response we will cancel your order, less a 20% Restocking Fee. After two times of placing orders without meeting the required product MOQ we will suspend your account.
Our standard processing time varies depending on Made-To-Order, Read To Ship, Custom Orders, etc. Retailers have the option to use code “HALFUPFRONT” at checkout to only have to pay for half of your order when placed and the rest when the order is ready to ship. There MUST be a credit card on file if using HALFUPFRONT. Once your order is ready we will process the credit card we have on file for the remaining balance due.
For custom orders, our processing time is roughly 4-6 weeks depending on the order. If you order regular products with custom please be prepared for the FULL custom processing time for all orders. We are working hard to get everything out as quickly as possible but everything is HAND MADE IN TEXAS.
Please understand due to the post pandemic world we live in, supply chain issues may cause delays that are beyond our control. We are doing everything we can to get orders out as timely as possible.
