- Merchandise Consistency
We encourage you to request a sample of the actual product before you order in bulk quantity. It is important that you understand that these samples are representative of nature. While we are very careful about the suppliers and manufacturers we use, manufacturing variations are unavoidable and a natural result of the manufacturing process. By choosing to place an order with Apparel Branders, you are agreeing to accept merchandise with reasonable manufacturing variances in product material, color, and packaging. The most common example of this is apparel dye-lots.

- Website Images/Artwork Proofs
We make every effort to provide clear and color-correct images and color swatches that reflect the true nature of the products. However, website images, color swatches, and emailed proofs are inherently limited in their ability to communicate color, scale, and detail. Customers should be careful about making assumptions about products from the website image alone. We strongly urge our customers to order actual samples. If you choose not to evaluate a physical sample, we cannot be held responsible for the difference between the image as it appears on your monitor and the final product.
- Pre-production Proofs
Apparel Branders can produce actual proof of any product with your imprint prior to running the complete order. We strongly recommend this on all orders where time permits. Pre-production proofs typically incur an additional charge (the price of the item plus screen/setup charge) and can add 3-10 days to the order process. Please let a Customer Service Representative know if you would like a Pre-production proof.
- PMS, TPX Matching
Customers who require specific color matching can provide us with a PMS (Pantone Matching System?) color for most products. Where PMS matching is available, there is typically a $40.00 charge per color. The factory will make every effort to closely match any PMS color but an exact match cannot be guaranteed.
