DAMAGE OR SHORTAGE:
When orders are shipped via package carrier such as FedEx or UPS, goods are shipped at Buyer’s risk. We prefer to ship such orders with individual overpack cartons to reduce damage. This service is available at a nominal charge. If damage occurs when overpack cartons are used, ClearWater Gear will be responsible for damage incurred in transit.
Please follow the carrier’s procedures for claims processing. If help is needed, please contact our office within 7 days of arrival. Damages or shortages must be noted and signed by the delivery carrier. Deductions from our invoice must be authorized in advance by our accounting department.
Industry standards allow 1/16” to be an acceptable amount of variance in registration, though we will always strive for the best print possible.
INVENTORY / SOURCING:
We source products from multiple vendors in order to keep our warehouse fully stocked. We only select sources that meet our high quality standards. Your reorder may contain products from a different manufacturer than the previous order due to supply constraints. The size and shape of the items are nearly identical, but if you require a specific brand, please contact us before the order to check if that request can be filled.
Multi-color digital printing available on select items with a minimum order as low as 12pcs. Contact Sales for more details.

Each imprint color will require it's own screen (just on the initial order).
Due to the inherent properties of ceramic and glassware, there will be small imperfections and irregularities which should not be perceived as defective. Variations in materials and firing temperatures may result in variations in glaze or glass finish. By accepting an order, the buyer therefore agrees to these conditions. ClearWater Gear strives for a high standard of quality of our product, and inspects each piece before printing. Unacceptable pieces are discarded. The acceptable level for tolerance level is 3%, the industry standard.
Our legendary quick production time starts after written proof approval and receipt of payment. This lead time should be used as a general guideline as sometimes items take longer or sometimes they're shipped ahead of schedule.
If you have an in-hands date, please just let us know when you order so we can determine if we're able to rush your order.
Our customers are pleasantly surprised with how fast they can receive their printed glassware items when using ClearWater Gear!

If a printed sample is required, screen charges will apply, as well as a spec sample charge for each imprint color. Blank samples are available at no charge on most items. More than 4 revisions to a virtual proof may incur an additional charge.
The industry standard for overage/underage is 5% of the quantity ordered. Your order will ship within 5% over or under the quantity you requested. You will only be billed for what is shipped. If you require an exact quantity, please contact us and let us know. Exact quantity shipments may incur an additional fee.

On the advice of countless breweries, wineries and bars in the region, we've been working with Clearwater Gear since opening day at Mountain Lakes... and we wouldn't work with anyone else.

Clearwater Gear was fantastic to work with! This was our first order and we could not be more pleased with both the service from Josh and Jackie, and the quality of the product. I ordered 288 pint glasses for our golf course and they look awesome. Thank you Clearwater Gear, you have a customer for life.
