Terms & Conditions
Please read this page carefully. By using our services you agree to these terms and conditions. Black Sun Screen Printing reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time and without notice.
Estimates/quotes expire within 14 days and can be subject to change after a complete review of your final artwork by Black Sun Screen Printing.
Artwork Preparation Fee
Before submitting artwork, please ensure you have understood our artwork preparation page guidelines. Artwork that does not meet our requirements will be subject to an artwork preparation fee of $100 per hour. In these instances customer will be notified prior to any work being undertaken.
Artwork Approval Process
Before printing can commence we will send you a job proof for all print designs. We then require written customer approval via email of each jobs proof before a job can enter production. Please check this proof carefully as we cannot accept responsibility for any mistakes that are on the proof that are then reproduced in the print run. We will provide you with 2 free amendments to the proof sheet after which each subsequent amendment will be charged at $25 per proof. Job proofs are not to scale. Colours may be distorted by electronic devices so please refer to the relevant Pantone solid colour swatch book for accurate colour referencing.
Due to the technique-sensitive nature of the work, misprints do happen. A production variance of 5% or less is considered normal. The cost will be refunded to you and the outstanding balance will not be reprinted. For a production variance of more than 5%, we can instead reprint the oustanding garments. For garments supplied by the customer we recommend that they over supply up to 10% of the required number to allow for misprints.
For colour accuracy, we use Pantone solid coated swatch codes to mix our inks. If you do not supply us with pantone codes then we can pick the closest match from your artwork. Please note that we do not accept responsibility for colours not matching 100% as we allow a very small colour variance. Discharge printing especially, can produce colour variance as a normal feature of the process. If requesting the discharge printing method please also be aware that printing can only be carried out on certain fabrics. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure that we have been supplied with reactive dyed fabric. In addition, garments that contain polyester or nylon are not recommended for screen printing and any issues arising from the use of these fabrics are the responsibility of the customer.
Please also note that due the nature of the printing process, there might be a slight variation of up to 1cm of print placement as garments are hand loaded onto the press.
Before we begin production, we require all three aspects below to be satisfied:
Final approved artwork must be on site. It is the responsibility of the customer to ensure artwork meets our specifications and has signed off the job proof. Please read through our artwork preparation page for more information.

Black Sun Screen Printing accept no responsibility for any losses incurred by the customer due to turnaround time being exceeded. Quicker turnaround times will be considered and will be subject to a surcharge based on how quickly you require your order.
