How long does a pre order take?

  • After the round closes, orders are collated and sent to the printer. This takes 1 - 2 days.
  • The SFQ printer checks image quality, confirmation of quantities. This could take 2-4 days depending on time zone differences.
  • Turnaround time (TAT) from printing to delivery at SFQ is 6-8 weeks
  • Fabric shipment is quality checked, separated and prepared for orders.
  • Orders are cut, packed and shipping notifications sent to customers.
  • Please join our Facebook group or look here for updates on each rounds as they process.
  • There could be significant delays with printing and shipping due to a variety of circumstances. I will try my best to keep everyone updated with as much information as I know.
  • We print with more than one printer so some bases, colours, processing and shipping times can vary.


  • If you would like to cancel an order after it is placed, please send me an email with your order number.
  • If it is a retail order, it will be cancelled if your label has not been created.
  • If a label has been created, you will be refunded your order amount less shipping fee.
  • If you would like to cancel and your order has already shipped, you are responsible for return shipping. Your refund will be processed once fabric is received and inspected.
  • Shipping will not be refunded.

Flaws/Colour Disclosure

  • Due to the nature of custom printed fabric, there may be minor flaws present. Flaws within 10cm of the selvage edge, on the back side of the fabric, or those smaller than 3cm x 3cm, are considered acceptable and will not be disclosed prior to shipment.
  • We are not responsible for insignificant flaws, dye transfer or bleeding during washing, or fabric shipped to an incorrect address. Fabric will only be shipped to the address that is selected during checkout.

Missing/Flawed Items

  • Please contact us within 7 business days of your package being received with any issues.
  • If you are missing any items from your order, or you find a significant flaw in an item received, please contact me at or private message me via Facebook.
  • All fabric must be measured BEFORE washing/cutting or altering in any way.
  • Any shortages will be refunded on a cm-by-cm base divided by the cost of fabric. Eg, if you paid $22 per meter and you were 1 cm short. 22/100 = .22. The cost per cm would be .22 cents. Therefore, you would receive a refund of .22 cents/cm based on flaw (if it is not covered in the flaw policy) or shortage.
  • If you are measuring your fabric, please measure it in cms as per New Zealand Measurement and Weight Legislation.

Pre-Order Policy

  • Pre-Order pricing includes all fees including shipping to me. 
  • Retail orders aren't guaranteed.
  • We will keep you updated as to any delays that may happen on the Facebook VIP group
  • You can often find info about a round by typing the round name into the search box, with a hashtag, or the word, #update.
  • It can take 3-4 business days to process the fabric, cut, ship, etc. depending on the round size.
  • If you choose the incorrect shipping at checkout - you will be invoiced for the remainder once the pre-order arrives. 
  • Please note that all fabric bases absorbs colours differently due to their fiber content. Natural fibers will absorb colours and inks very differently than synthetic man made fibers. THIS IS NOT A FLAW.
  • Orders can not be edited once they are placed with our printer(s).
