(Exceptions) Any items purchased to be personalised may be ordered in as a special order, and work may start immediately after receiving your order, therefore these items will not be eligable for cancellation after the confirmation email has been sent. If you require any more information please contact us info@
For all personalised products please make sure the image you are uploading or using for your order is of a good, high resolution in order to get he best results. We recommend at least 300dpi for all images. For online designer orders please take note of the advisory coloured bar at the top of the designs and text tab , which is your guide as to how your product will appear when complete. This will change colour from red (poor quality) to amber (reduced quality) to green (good quality to print) when you upload and make changes to size etc on the designer. If you choose to go to print and place your order, even after this bar shows as amber or red, the quality of your product will not be recommended quality from The Workwear Company. No refunds or alterations will be made after you have placed the order, and no returns will be accepted due to poor print quality.
For printing we do not pantone colour match, and please remember computer screens may show logo's and pictures slightly differently dependant on the screen manufacturer. If you have specific colour needs please call us or email firstname.lastname@example.org before proceeding to checkout.
For embroidery we can pantone colour match when the full set up fee is paid, but you must email the pantone references to us with your order number the same day your confirmation email arrives with you.
If you would like to see a proof of your embroidery before we embroider your garments, please ask via email or phone as this will not be an automatic service. We will however send you a digitial version to check spelling, and layout, but please note this may appear crisper and clearer than the actual stitched off embroidered logo due to the nature of the process. Individual Names / different text on each garments are NOT allowed for embroidery, if you choose a work wear package. We accept one embroidery design per order - meaning one design throughout your entire order on all garments, using the same colours and size of logo. If you require different colour embroidery on garments these must be put through as seperate orders. If you are unsure if you need to order more than once please email us. Picture Logos can be used for embroidery and all set up information can be found in our frequently asked questions When you pay for the original logo set up fee with ourselves we will digitise the design for you to use with your order. We will keep your design on file for your future use with our company, should you wish to take the file for use elsewhere there will be a charge of £50.00 plus vat.Your digitised file remains the property of The Workwear Company at all times until this fee is paid.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to the nature of clothing making slight variations in size, shape and colour to any embroidery applied which can be apparent when comparing garments closely,and this being entirely normal we can not refund or exchange any goods because of this reason. Any pantone references should be specified at the time of ordering, otherwise the closest match we have to the logo sent on our screen, will be used on your garments.

The returns fee will be applicable and is dependant on the item ordered, but will either be a set fee of £10 or 60% of the garments original purchase price whichever is higher.
If the garment is faulty it will be returned to the supplier who will inspect it and let us know whether a refund is applicable. If they agree the garment was faulty at the time of purchase or find fault with the item, and refund The Workwear Company in full, we will refund our customer.
