1.1 The Tshirt Mill Return Policy
We are proud of the level of quality we produce across all of our printing avenues. Having said that, we are only human and every once in a while we might have a printing hiccup or miss a manufacturing error in a garment. On the very odd occasion that this happens we are happy to reprint your item. Before we can do that though there are a few steps you need to take. Firstly, read the all important ‘What can be Returned’ list to determine whether or not your item is indeed returnable:
What can be returned?
Returns are only accepted if within 14 days of receipt of purchase
Only damaged/faulty garments, or faulty prints can be returned/exchanged
Please note all returns must be in original packaging and have no noticeable signs of wear or makeup stains
Note: Shipping fee's are non refundable.
Sadly, we can not accept returns for:
Change of mind
Spelling, punctuation or grammatical errors made by the customer
Shipping or stock delays
Unsatisfaction with different colours profiles between different garments
Incorrect product selection by user - it is the responsibility of the customer to check size charts, style, garment thickness and colours before confirming and paying for their order either online or via our quoting system
Design errors introduced by the customer in the design process
Variances in the garment size of +/- 2cm (supplier allowance)
Unsatisfaction with print size - remember that the mockup garment you are designing on represents a full size range, so be sure to measure out your print size on one of your own tees before uploading it to the design tool to ensure you are happy with how big it is going to print
Inferior quality or low resolution of uploaded images
The difference between printing on white garments and coloured garments:
In order to be able to print on a coloured garment, we first have to spray the garment with a pre treatment solution that allows the white ink something to stick to. We then lay down a nice thick layer of white ink, followed by the colour layer. Becuase of this, colours do tend to look much brighter than when printing on a white garment. When we print on a white garment, the material absorbs the ink which means it loses a little bit of the vibrancy. Please ensure you call our sales team to discuss these differences and request samples before placing a larger order.
The difference between our screen and your screen:
Now is a good time to point out that everyone’s monitors are different, which means that there are going to be small differences in the colours that you see on your screen and what our team is looking at. In the same way there is going to be a variation in what you see on screen to the actual garment or print colour. For this reason please allow a 10% variation on both prints and garments, as well as a 10% difference in the print size.
We would also like to note that we have 3 different DTG machines here at The Tshirt Mill. Each machine has strengths and weaknesses in different areas such as ability to print on specific garments, produce more vibrant prints on white garments etc. We do this so that we can provide our customers with a wider range of products. Each printer utitlises it's own rip software and therefor interprets the colours in your artwork differently. So depending on the garments you order, there may be a slight colour difference in the prints between machines. Please ensure you contact our sales team prior to placing your order if a consistance colour across all your garments is important and they can assist with allocating your order to the correct machine and/or make a recommendations for your order.
It is also important to note all orders placed via the online store are digitally printed, and that there is a difference in the finished product of a screen printed garment, and a digitally printed garment. Digital printing utilises water based inks that are cured directly into the material of the garment, rather than sitting on top. Due to this, digital printing is not as vibrant as screen printing and does not last as long. Digitally printed garments will begin to fade within the first few washes and continue to fade over time. Digital printing is an excellent way to print a sample of a larger screen print order, as it will help to determine the position and size of your artwork. It is important to remember that it is not possible to replicate the vibrancy, and density of a screen print using our direct to garment inks.
Please examine your designs carefully and correct any mistakes prior to placing your order. In an effort to keep costs down and pass substantial savings along to our customers, The Tshirt Mill does not proof documents created by its customers prior to processing. When in doubt, call us ...we're super freindly and helpful.

**Important notes and tips on garment selection:
Our mission when we started this business was to enable everyone to express their individuality through their own custom tshirt. For this reason, we offer a huge range of products to cater to everyones budget and needs. We understand that shopping online can be difficult so we've popped some important facts about each brand below to enable you to make the best decision for you order. We're constantly updating our range and products so if you can't see the brand you are looking for below call our friendly sales team and they'll assist with advice.
AS Colour: These guys are the beez neez in terms of print quality, garment variety and garment quality. AS Colour garments are manufactured using a soft bushed cotton which creates a super smooth print surface. The smoother the print surface, the smoother the print. They are the most forward thinking brand with new 'on trend' colours and style being added to their range almost weekly.
Gildan/Keya (used for the $14.95 'Special Tee'): Print quality is not the best with these two suppliers, so don't expect too much. The on upside, they are nice and cheap and are a great entry level product for those on a budget. Keep in mind the material is thin so if you ladies don't want your bra to show then upgrade to a more premium or thicker tee. You might notice that this shirt is cheaper than our 'print' price on supplied stock, well that's becuase you get the shirt for FREE! Yep, we pay for the shirt, you just pay for the print. You are welcome.
Ramo: Ramo sits in between AS Colour and Gildan/Keya. It's a happy medium between price and quality and they have a sweet range of styles available. Ramo has a huge colour range in their modern fit tees which is great for those wanting to colour match a garment.
Sportage: Sportage is up there with AS Colour. Soft brushed cotton and smooth prints with a nice medium thick cotton that is priced well. An awesome alternaitve for those wanting something premium but are short on the funds (aren't we all!?).
RTP: RTP has been engineered for DTG printing - this means that during the manufacturing process the garments are washed with the pre treatment solution that allows us to print on them. Because this step is done during the manufacturing, it means we can not only print all over the RTP shirt but we can also achieve more vibrant and long lasting print results. Where the bloody hell have these guys been all our lives! Anywho - these bad boys are awesome for print quality but they're still fine tuning the cut and material. So keep in mind that they are generally oversized compared to Aussie sizes and super lightweight AKA thin people - think Victoria Beckham thin.
