Terms Of Use


Product Shipping and Delivery Information Important Shipping Policies:

  • Orders shipped via UPS will only be delivered to a physical address and not a P.O. Box. However, we can ship to campus boxes..
  • Our main goal is to get your order made right the first time. For that reason, we will not send your order into production if we do not have all of your information. If we have any questions regarding your order, we will contact you. Your order will not go into production until you respond to us. We would rather send your order out a day or two later, than send you something you will not be happy with.
  • Please keep in mind that the shipping times stated below are based on the date your order goes into production, not the date you place your order. We will attempt to contact you if the item(s) you ordered are on backorder.
  • An order will usually not ship out from our factory until all the items are ready to ship.
  • Please call (714) 828-8008 or 1-800-997-4478 for more information on high volume order pricing.
  • During the holiday season and certain other times, the production times listed below may increase due to the volume of orders we receive. We always recommend that you allow extra time for your order to arrive, especially if you need to have your order in your hands by a certain date.
  • Express Tees will assume no responsibility for delays resulting from the negligence of the carrier (primarily UPS), strikes, weather conditions, power failures or other acts of nature. UPS will attempt to deliver your package(s) for three consecutive business days. If no response is received, your package will be sent back to us and you will be charged to re-ship your order.
  • You should never refuse your shipment. If there is a problem with your order, you must save all packaging and boxes for inspection and/or return shipping; if this is the case, please contact your customer service representative as soon as possible. All claims must be reported to Express Tees and UPS within 48 hours of receipt.

Also we have a wide variety of standard ink colors to choose from at no extra charge, orders that necessitate a PMS(Pantone Matching System) match will be charged accordingly.

Express Tees is not responsible for any delay in order delivery caused by a delay in artwork approval.

We reserve the right to refuse to create/print artwork that is unlawful or inappropriate.
  • All designs are copyright Express Screen Press. We reserve the right to display artwork submitted by a customer for advertising purposes.

If this payment is not received in a timely manner, we reserve the right to charge late fees in addition to the balance due.

  • You can not add-on to your INDIVIDUAL order once it has been approved for production. You can place a second order that will be processed separately from your initial order. You may be able to add-on to a group order depending on the specifics of your order.
  • You may re-order more of an item as long as you meet the minimum order requirements when applicable. Orders under two dozen(24 garments) incur an environmental fee. The price per item may increase when placing a re-order. We highly recommend ordering extra items when placing group orders because add-ons and re-orders are not always possible.
