Can I supply my own garments?

 

Yes, however we cannot assume responsibility for any product not purchased from us. We do everything in our power to protect the garment from damage. We are responsible for the garment if we damage the garment while embroidering (e.g., needle breaks and makes a hole in the garment). We will check the garment upon arrival in the shop and again prior to its leaving.
