Terms & Conditions
All goods are sold by XAMAX® Clothing Company Limited ("the Seller") in good faith to any purchaser ("the Buyer") upon the following terms which shall prevail over any terms contained in the Buyer’s order or in correspondence or elsewhere unless specifically agreed to in writing and signed by a Director of the Seller.
1) Refunds & Returns
- Where applicable, plain garments and sample purchases will be refunded in full. Items must be sent back to The Seller through the Buyer's own expense & no carriage will be refunded unless the items are faulty. All items must be returned within 21 days.
- Personalised/Customised items fall outside of the Consumer Contracts Regulations (2014). The Seller will accept a return or refund request only in the case of a faulty base product or faulty customisation under the terms of the Conditions of Logo Application (section 2) and only from The Buyer.
- As Personalised/Customised items fall outside of the Consumer Contracts Regulations (2014), it is imperative that customers check available size guides for clothing products before ordering decorated items. The act of completing an order implies size guides have been checked and all sizes ordered are correct. Should a size guide not be available on the product description page, a XAMAX® account manager will be able to provide one on request.
- Should a part refund be requested by The Buyer for an order that originally qualified for Free Delivery, and that refund takes the total order value below the terms of The Seller's Free Delivery offer, the cost of initial delivery of the order will be deducted from the final refund value.
2) Conditions of Logo Application
- Free logo set up when you spend £100 +VAT on garments embroidered all with the same logo. Fair usage applies.
- Logo set up is £20 +VAT per new design if the minimum £100 +VAT is not met.
- Individual names added to designs will incur extra costs, please speak to our sales department for further information.
- It is the customers responsibility to review the visuals thoroughly, paying special attention to spellings and colours as mistakes cannot be rectified after production.
- Any logos with a stitch count higher than 8000 stitches will be subject to a surcharge of an additional 25p (£0.25) per 1000 extra stitches. Usually most left breast logos fall under the 8000 stitch count - but if your logo is more detailed, your account manager will be in touch to discuss your options.
