Policies


Here is how we operate to keep things going smoothly.

 If you have a question, we are happy to help…

If you have an issue or a question or a suggestion or a concern, please e-mail or message us as soon as you can and we will work with you to address it. Please remember that the admins and owners of this group are Moms. We will respond as soon as we can but family comes first.

 Our Fabric

  • Custom printed fabric is printed on cotton/lycra (95/5). All fabric is printed digitally using high quality dyes and is in compliance with the Canada Consumer Product Safety Act. Fabric width is approximately 59 inches. The fibre content of non-custom printed fabrics can be found on the individual listings.
  • We would love for you to share our photos but please link our group and use watermarked images wherever possible.
  • Our fabric is made using a combination of original artwork, and unique clip art/prints that we have obtained the licensing for.
  • We try our best to be original and run prints based our experiences and what inspires us. Sometimes licenced clipart or purchased artwork could be duplicated in other groups because we don’t buy exclusive rights.

 Pre-Order Timeframes

  • Pre-orders will be announced in our Facebook group: Fabric Goat. We will keep you updated on the status update page.
  • Turn around for each order to be submitted to the printer, printed, and shipped to me is 3-12 weeks. This time frame begins after the closing date and could be affected by statutory holidays, customs processing, size of the round, and other unforeseen circumstances.
  • It can take our team 1-3 weeks to process the fabric depending on the round size. By purchasing from any pre-order, you understand that there is a waiting period and you have agreed to the wait by completing your purchase.
  • Pre-orders are non-refundable.

 Flaws

  • Please remember that all fabrics are prone to slight shrinkage and eventual wearing/fading after lots of washes – especially darker colors. This is not a flaw, this is normal wear and tear on fabrics.
  • If there are any issues with an entire print during a pre-order, you can expect updates on the Fabric Goat page and on the Status Update page of our website. We will always offer a resolution to flawed prints.
  • Some flaws can be expected as result of the custom printing process. Small white/black flecks and spots may be seen on the fabric and are part of the normal printing process.
    • Colors can also occasionally go through to the back of the fabric while printing.
    • Textured striations in solid printed colors can be more common depending on the color being printed, and is not a flaw.
    • We cannot guarantee any specific color will match other fabric, unless previously stated that they are coordinating fabrics.
    • Flaws smaller than a quarter are acceptable and will not be refunded. Anything bigger than a quarter will be sold as seconds.
    • Smudges/printing marks can also be expected on the selvages of the fabric and are normal up to 4 inches into the sides of the fabric. We leave these to optimize your cutting area.
    • Different types of fabric can arrive wrinkled due to transit, this is not a flaw, and will not be refunded. Wash your fabric as usual, the wrinkles will wash out.

 Payment and Shipping

  • We currently accept PayPal and credit cards via the website.

    • All issues must be brought to our attention before washing, cutting, or altering the fabric in any way.
    • No refunds or replacements can given after the fabric has been altered from its original condition.
  • Sometimes fabric may be slightly crooked when cutting. As long as each side is at least 39”, this is not a flaw, and will not be refunded.

 Fabric Care

We recommend washing on cold, drying on warm/hot to set colors. You can also use a color catcher, however we have never had any issues with bleeding colors.
