Full payment is required when an order is placed. No work will proceed until payment is received and cleared. As a stuff4GREEKS customer you are purchasing our custom graphic design services. We provide this product to you via email in the form of a proof. Once the proof has been approved, your item(s) will be created based on that layout that you approved and shipped to the address that you designated. You will have an opportunity to request changes as necessary before any embroidery work has started.
Sending in Garments
stuff4GREEKS allows customers to send in their own personal garments for embroidery to be added. In this situation, all stuff4GREEKS Terms and Conditions as well as the following special conditions apply:
- 1. The customer is responsible for shipping the garment to stuff4GREEKS and paying for the completed item to be shipped back with insurance,
- 2. stuff4GREEKS maintains the right to refuse any garment if the condition of the garment is deemed unsuitable for the desired embroidery,
- 3. If the customer's garment is damaged during the production process, we will replicate the original garment to the best of our ability. We make no guarantee that the replacement will be identical to the original garment, only that it will be as similar to the original as possible,
- 4. Under no circumstances will stuff4GREEKS pay monetary damages if the customer's garment is lost in transit to stuff4GREEKS or damaged during the production process.
Proofs for Custom Orders
stuff4GREEKS provides a full color proof for each order as well as for any change(s) made to an order. As the customer, you are 100% responsible for the accuracy of your layout. Please review all proofs carefully before approving. Double check garment size, spelling, and color because your order will be created based on the final proof that you approve. All previous requests are null and void once we have sent you a proof.
Change requests are handled in the order that they are received. We will make the changes and email you back a revised proof for your approval. Once we receive your final approval, we will begin the production process and no further changes can be made. Your order will be created based solely on the proof that you APPROVED.
Changing Files Once the Production Process Has Begun
Once we have received final approval of the proof, no changes are allowed to the artwork, design, clothing size, job characteristics, or turnaround time. Change requests after an order has been APPROVED will incur a minimum charge of $50. No exceptions. It does not matter how minor the change may seem or how soon after the order has been APPROVED. In some circumstances, a change request may be subject to the full price of a new garment.
If you want to change a non-custom order once we have started making it, there will be a 30% restocking fee because we have to restock the item that we started making for you and start the process all over again making your new item.
We start counting the turnaround time when we receive proof approval. Upon receiving an order, a proof is usually submitted to the customer via email within 2 business days (if your design is very complicated, developing the proof may take longer). This proof will be a nearly exact replica of your garment, and you will be given the opportunity to request changes before you approve. No changes are permitted after proof APPROVAL.
Normal estimated 15, 30, or 45 business day production time: Once the proof has been approved, our estimated production time is approximately 15, 30, or 45 business days depending on what item you ordered. Estimated production times are listed here. Production time is an estimate, not a guarantee. Your order could be completed a few days sooner or a few days later than the estimated date. Shipping time is not included in the estimated production time. Upon request, we can work to meet a specific timeline for certain projects; however, again these times are not guaranteed unless you upgrade to Rush Production. Business days are Monday through Friday. Holidays, Saturdays and Sundays do not count when calculating turnaround time. Group orders may take longer than the estimated turnaround time. Items ordered during peak season (between Sept-May) may take longer than the estimated turnaround time. stuff4GREEKS assumes no responsibility for delays caused by delivery carriers or any damages resulting from the failure to receive an order on time. Our estimated delivery date is not guaranteed. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, inclement weather, etc. stuff4GREEKS also assumes no responsibility for proof delays due to email server problems.
2-Week Rush Production: Your order will be shipped within two weeks, not counting holidays, from the date of proof approval. If your order arrives later than promised, we will refund the Rush Production fees.
1-Week Rush Production: The product will be shipped within one week, not counting holidays, from the date of proof approval. If the product arrives later than promised, we will refund the Rush Production fees.
All turnaround time guarantees exclude delays as a result of natural disasters and/or material shortages.
We will refund Rush Production fees if:
- the order did not arrive on time, or
- the garment is physically unwearable due to a manufacturing defect.
Aside from that, we do not refund Rush Production fees.
Artwork and Icons
Any requested design that is not already in our design library may be subject to a separate one-time digitizing fee. The amount of this digitizing fee varies depending on the complexity. The customer will be notified in advance if additional fees are required to create a certain design. The digitizing fee is a one-time fee, and the digitized image may be reused on future orders at no additional charge. We reserve the right to refuse any design for any reason.
Any design submitted to stuff4GREEKS or used on any article of clothing created by stuff4GREEKS may be reused, modified, and/or resold by stuff4GREEKS and all other APGG companies. stuff4GREEKS does not furnish a digitized embroidery file to the customer for any purpose.

The stuff4GREEKS Brand
We reserve the right to brand garments with the S4G logo. We intentionally make the S4G logo small and inconspicuous so that it does not interfere with or draw attention away from the garment's design. The S4G brand signifies your jacket's authenticity and quality. Our customers are proud to have the brand on their jacket to assure them that they are not wearing a cheap "knock-off" or imitation jacket. The brand is usually semi-hidden at the bottom of the garment.
