These colors include Black, Maroon, Teal, Light Pink, Violet, Brown, Carolina Blue, Grey, Black, White, Navy, Hot Pink, Green, Kelly Green, Scarlet Red, Royal Blue, Red, Lemon, Golden, Orange Copper Shimmer, Silver Shimmer and Gold Shimmer. Specialty ink colors are available for an additional fee. All specialty inks must be specifically requested and provided as a Pantone Code (PMS Coated). All Pantone colors will be mixed by weight with a specialty ink mixing system. It is very important to note that all design proofs and mockups will appear slightly different on a computer screen than in real life. All monitors are calibrated differently, which means no two colors will look exactly alike. If color accuracy is very important, a Pantone color must be provided prior to invoice approval. Emulsion LLC will not be responsible for any reprints or returns based on ink color inconsistencies up to 10% of the actual colors approved.
All orders must be paid in full before the order process begins unless otherwise approved by Emulsion LLC. If check paying for an order via check, turn around time begins after the check clears.
Under-Runs & Spoilage:
Due to the wholesale ordering process, extensive setups, and overall nature of this business, Emulsion LLC will not be responsible for under-runs or spoilage up to 3% on jobs of 100 shirts per design, and up to 10% on jobs of less than 100 pieces. This means that spoilage must be more than 10 units per design to qualify for a reprint. Please keep this in mind when ordering. For this reason, we do recommend ordering extra pieces if possible. We do double check all of our orders before shipping and receiving, but occasionally orders may ship without every item ordered. For any items shorted or left out of your order, we will refund you the cost on a per item basis, but will not process a reprint for less than 10% of your order (or 10 shirts minimum). Please make sure to adjust your orders accordingly.
The turn around time for all orders begins after the order has been paid in full and all required customer information has been submitted, including all artwork files. From this time, our typical turnaround time is 10-14 business days on average plus shipping time. All hard deadlines must be submitted to your Emulsion representative in order to let us know. A rush fee may be added to your order if there is not enough time to complete under normal circumstances. More complex orders such as interior tags, or finishing services may add to total turn around time. Any circumstances out of Emulsion LLC’s control such as extreme weather or shipping errors may more time to an average order.
If your order does not arrive by the in-hands date requested due to an incorrectly submitted shipping address. Emulsion LLC cannot be held responsible for any shipping delays caused by the shipping company.In this circumstance, Emulsion LLC maintains no responsibly for accepting a return or issuing any compensation due to a late delivery.

There is a minimum of 24 units with the exact same print to get started on any order of screen printing or embroidery. This means ink, thread color, graphic size, and location must all be the same in order to quality as the same unit print.
Customer are allowed to supply their own garments for printing.

Your print can only be as good as your artwork. Emulsion LLC is not responsible for typographical or design errors on customer approved designs. All artwork must be double checked for spelling, color, line work, placement, and any other accuracy by the customer before it is submitted for production. Once artwork is approved, no refunds will be issued for errors on the fault of the customer. All files must be provided at 300 DPI or vector format. All design files should be sized correctly to the exact size you would like printed (in inches). All artwork is to be approved via a digital mock-up through email. Emulsion LLC will not accept responsibility for corrections not implemented and/or requested after artwork approval. Any modifications requested after customer approval will result in production delays and could require additional expenses. Any delays in the approval process longer than 24 hours after receipt of the mockup could result in production delays.
For any screen printing order there is a setup fee for each color and each color location printed. For any embroidery order, each setup fee is based on the total number of print locations for digitizing. Setup fees are not charged on any reprints placed within 1 year of invoice date on orders of the exact same imagery. This means the image being reprinted must be the exact same size, location, and design to qualify for free setup charges on reprints. Any changes required to the graphic, including size, placement, or design alterations, would result in a new set of setup fees.
Out of Stock Items:
Emulsion LLC is not responsible for items that are out of stock via our wholesale accounts. While we check items we know to have potential stock issues, all garments are ordered after your order is placed, and we cannot guarantee their availability. If items are out of stock, we will provide you with a list of possible replacements and get it approved by you before using your chosen item. If an item has an expected date of availability, there will be an option to wait for stock to begin the print process.

Back prints will be printed close to 3″ to 4″ down from the bottom of the collar.

Specified Print Locations:

Although we use the highest quality machinery in the business, each garment is still loaded on by hand. Therefore,
placement inconsistencies may be off by as much as an inch in any direction. This would not be considered a misprint requiring a reprint or refund by Emulsion LLC.
