Terms of Service
Please read this page in its entirety. You will be required to acknowledge and accept these terms before we proceed with your order. Review this page for updates as changes may occur without notice.
01 / Standard Turnaround Time
Our standard turnaround time is 10-15 business days.
“Standard” refers to orders with standard heat press and sublimation work and/or small sized, embroidery designs such as logos. “Standard” does not include add-on services such as tag printing, foil or rhinestone work, or additional fulfillment. Please review our Add-On Services page for more details.
Note that approvals taking more than 24 hours will add to your turnaround time.
The March Creative is not responsible for missing deadlines due to shipping errors, vendor shortages and/or errors, power interruptions, weather, or any other acts of God. If we expect or foresee any problems, we will notify you to determine best course of action to proceed.
02 / Rush Orders
We can offer rush services under certain conditions. A “Rush Order Fee” will occur. Please contact us for further information. Be sure to know your “in hand” date when requesting rush services.
03 / Shipping
We ship via USPS, UPS, and FedEx. A tracking number will be provided once your order has left our facility.
Shipping expenses are the sole responsibility of the client and will be added to your final invoice unless otherwise agreed upon. Shipping costs are not usually included in quotes as we are unaware of final weight of items until we are ready to ship them.
The March Creative is not responsible for any shipping issues including those caused by carrier errors, weather, strikes, or otherwise.
We assume no responsibility for items once they have left our facility.
We will not be responsible for incorrect shipping addresses if the shipping address provided by the client was incorrect at time of quote approval and shipping.
Please note that shipping time is not included in our turnaround time. Please estimate a minimum of 5 days in for shipping.
If you need to ship orders to multiple address, we got you covered! Please provide us an itemized list detailing the names, addresses, items/sizes, and quantities to be shipped to each address. Orders will be shipped based on current shipping rates. Shipping rates will be added to your final invoice.
04 / Packaging
All items will be bulk packaged unless upgraded fulfillment service is requested.
05 / Payment & Terms

We accept ACH and credit card payments. A payment link will be included to your invoice. Please note that a credit card processing fee of 3% will be incurred on orders over $1,000.
Due In Full: Payment is due in full prior to start of work. No payment is required until you approve your order.
Net Terms: We offer Net 15 and Net 30 terms upon approval. Production will commence on approval of order. A final invoice will be emailed to you. The invoice date starts your Net Terms.

06 / Returns & Refunds Policy
At The March Creative, we work hard to give every client the highest quality service, products, and finishes. We make it our goal to fulfill our clients needs with 100% customer satisfaction.
Because items are customized, we can only accept returns if items are printed or embroidered incorrectly with a design that was not approved by you or your representative. We are not responsible for any changes in scope of design work, such as color changes, name changes, or design changes. Such changes should be in writing and approved by The March Creative.
In addition, the items must be unused and in the same condition that you received them. They must also be in the original packaging.
If a refund is approved, it will be returned to your original form of payment. Items will need to be shipped back to us to receive the approved refund.
Our Returns & Refunds Policy lasts 3 days. If 3 days have passed since your purchase was delivered, we cannot offer you a refund or exchange.
07 / Approvals
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO CHECK YOUR ARTWORK AND ORDER FOR ACCURACY. Please confirm that the following is correct:
- Item (apparel, mug, tumbler, etc)
- Artwork location
Before we begin production, we create a mockup of your design on the requested items. Mockups will include your artwork, size, and placement. Any changes, comments, or questions should be discussed before approval as changes will result in an additional fee. You will need to approve the design for us to begin production. Once the mockup is approved, the order is considered accurate and complete.
ANY MISTAKES APPROVED BY THE CLIENT ARE THE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE CLIENT. THE MARCH CREATIVE ASSUMES ZERO RESPONSIBILITY IN REGARDS TO CLIENT MISTAKES.
Additions & Changes.
Additions may be accepted with an additional fee. Once the order is placed and items are ordered, cancellations will not be accepted. All Sales are final.
