Branding of Products & Clothing is not always permanent and may wear off over time and use.

Due to the variety of substrates, inks and branding processes, BrandGear cannot guarantee exact Pantone matching, nor colour reference matching.

No approvals will be accepted telephonically. Approvals must be received via email.

We create the screens and plates needed for production, once Artwork approval is received.

The client will be liable for these costs plus the Products & Clothing already branded, should he/she elect to change Artwork after production has started.
