TERMS & CONDITIONS
Master Stitch, Inc.
Master Stitch is not responsible if the customer has a change of mind or size.
Master Stitch will proceed with your order once we have received approval of the proof either via email or in writing. You agree that all agreements, notices, disclosures and other communications we provide to you electronically satisfy any legal requirement that such communications be in writing.
Master Stitch is not responsible for any typographical mistakes or errors that are overlooked and later approved by the customer. In addition, Master Stitch cannot be held responsible for any damages that may be incurred as a result of the error or mistake after the order has been embellished and accepted by the customer.
For example, if an order is supposed to read “Happy Holidays”, but the customer approves the artwork with a typographical error so the artwork reads “Hapy Holidays” (missing a “p” in “Happy”), Master Stitch cannot be held responsible for the misprint as a result of the error. Once the customer approves the proof and order acknowledgment, we are not at liberty to make ANY changes to the order. Whether correct or with errors, the order is printed exactly as approved by the customer. For this reason, it is VERY IMPORTANT to carefully look over ALL the paperwork before replying with your approval.
Please submit clean vector or camera ready artwork. Faxes, copies, business cards, letterheads or photos are not camera ready.
All orders are considered “firm” when placed. No cancellations on finished merchandise are accepted.
