Delay in receiving any of this information could result in production delays. The quicker you are communicating with us the less chance for delays. Please be aware that if your order is more complex this may increase the turnaround time.
If you have a deadline for your order, it's hugely important that you let us know when placing your order, a rush fee may be applied if we do not have enough time to complete your order under normal circumstances.
If you do not advise us about a due date until after you have accepted your quote, we may not be able to accommodate your request. Any circumstances out of Mean Screens Auckland control (ie: weather delays, shipping errors by the suppliers etc.) may also require more time and are not factored into your work order listed due date.
What happens if your supplier is out of stock?
Mean Screens Auckland is not responsible for items that are out of stock. We do our best to check items we know are quite popular and have potential stock issues, all garments are ordered after your order is placed and and full payment has been made. We cannot guarantee their availability, if items are out of stock we will contact you to advise you when these are expected to be in stock or suggest an alternative style or colour.
