Special Orders (Class 2) are items promoted by us that may carry set conditions requiring fulfilment before the product can be produced and supplied. These conditions may include approval by a governing body; requirement of a minimum number of units ordered for the item to be printed; or other conditions as described in the promotional material used to communicate the offer. These orders may take longer than normal to produce and are considered a 'one-off' order. Such items can not be returned or exchanged if the incorrect item or size is ordered.
Collection Only items are items that are can not generally be posted and are instead exclusively made available for collection at the nominated event venue. These items include, but are not limited to, personalised uniforms, personalised teamwear and/or related accessories, and limited print run garments such as 'Athletes T-Shirts'.
