Restocking Fee

If you elect to cancel your order after we have already purchased the wholesale blank goods, but before they have been embellished, then a 15% restocking fee will apply. The restocking fee represents our real costs to return the blank items back to the wholesaler.  

Customer Supplied Garments

DOT-TONE wants to ensure that the quality of the end product we supply meets your expectations.   Because of the delicate nature of apparel and adding ink application, we have chosen not to accept customer supplied garments.
