A HAND CRAFTED PRODUCT IS NOT ALWAYS PERFECT
Gillies labels are printed 6-Up (3 front / 3 Back) on a tabletop flat-bed HP printer, on pressure sensitive white semi-gloss label stock. There is a little wiggle as the paper feeds into the printer. We allow for this by having the art overprint the label edge in a “Bleed” of 1/8th “on all four sides. The labels are peeled from their home-sheet and applied by hand to the front and back of each individual bag prior to filling with product. Application of the labels is pretty good but not perfect as it is a hand operation. The same goes for the hand filling, sealing, and the application of the tin-tie closure at the bag top. You should expect a variation from one bag to another. This is a hand-craft operation, not a mass-produced product (where each bag is as the one that came off the line before and the one after).
Custom made goods as private label goods are not returnable except in the case of manufacturer’s error or product defect.
Goods are invoiced and charged prior to order acceptance by Gillies as the goods you are ordering are made-to-order, and customer specific with no sale value to another once they are prepared. Orders are accepted upon payment-in-full in good funds. Gillies accepts Direct Wire Transfer, MC, Visa. Amex, PayPal.
In no case will Gillies Coffee Company Liability exceed the invoiced amount of the product directly related to any claim.
