You shall pay or reimburse SanMar for any and all such charges. Late payment of any amount will be grounds for SanMar to discontinue performance under these terms and conditions of sale. Any amounts not paid by the due date will be subject to a finance charge at a rate equal to the lesser of 1.5% per month or the maximum rate allowed by law. However, payment of such finance charge will not excuse or cure a breach or default for late payment. Returned checks will be subject to a $40.00 per check charge. All freight is F.O.B. point of origin. You remain responsible for all shipping and handling charges including, without limitation, failure by the consignee to pay shipping charges, failure by any third party to pay shipping charges, or an incorrect or invalid shipping account number. SanMar accepts American Express, Visa and MasterCard (please ask your sales representative for details). SanMar does not accept third party credit cards.
3. Pricing. All prices are subject to change without notice. SanMar assumes no responsibility and shall incur no liability whatsoever if price change notices are not received. In the event of new federal or state taxes or legislation affecting the costs of products or items, SanMar reserves the right to increase prices as it deems appropriate or necessary. Merchandise is subject to change or withdrawal, or may be temporarily or permanently out of stock. We assume no liability for delays or failure to deliver due to our inability to obtain supplies. SanMar has no minimum order amount; however, orders under $50.00 are subject to a $5.00 service charge.
4. Discounted. Pricing and Product Description. Orders placed for one to five pieces in a specific style, color and size group receive piece pricing. Six or more pieces (up to case quantity) in a specific style, color and size group receive dozen pricing. And case pricing is available for orders of a particular pack of a specific style, color and size group, with quantity determined by mill. Many product descriptions include the weight of the fabric indicated in ounces. All weights included in product descriptions are averages based on the color offering for that specific item. Weights are provided to SanMar by the manufacturer.
5. Backorders. Backorders can only be placed for Goods that are out of stock at all of our warehouse locations at the time that the order is placed. Warehouses cannot be specified for backorder fulfillment and all backorders will be filled as inventory is available. You will not be charged until your backorder ships. All items are priced at the time of fulfillment. Only sale pricing and promotional discounts that are active at the time that the backorder is filled will be applied. Promotional “Promo” codes cannot be applied to backorders. There is no service charge for backorders and all backorders ship free freight when shipped within the contiguous United States. Shipping method is at SanMar’s discretion and may vary by location. You will receive fulfillment notification from us as Goods are available. No backorders will be accepted for discontinued or closeout merchandise, catalogs or custom hemmed pants. Fulfillment of backorders is subject to the availability of Goods. Estimated Times of Arrival (“ETA”s) provided at the time of backorder placement are courtesy estimates only for when Goods are expected to be received by SanMar. We assume no liability for delays or failure to deliver due to our inability to obtain supplies.
6. Returns and Cancelled Orders. It is your responsibility to check for discrepancies or defects in an order before any alterations or embellishments are made. Returns must be authorized by SanMar in advance. Claims for returns for defective Goods must be made in accordance with the warranties in SanMar’s General Terms & Conditions of Sale. Altered or embellished garments, excluding irregulars, are not returnable. Authorized returns must be accompanied by a return authorization form or number from SanMar. Returns without original corresponding invoice number(s) will be credited at the lowest published price. Cancelled orders or returns of unwanted merchandise must be approved in advance and may be subject to a 20% restocking fee plus applicable shipping charges. Merchandise that is not SanMar’s will be returned to you at your expense or disposed of by SanMar. Discontinued or close-out items are not returnable. All returns must be prepaid. Please contact SanMar Customer Service for a return authorization and shipping address.
7. Export Shipments. Many Goods that have been imported into the U.S. cannot be exported to other countries. It is your responsibility to check with their freight forwarder to confirm foreign documentation requirements and verify that items to be exported will be released by customs at the final destination. SanMar is not responsible for providing this information or any documentation required to export goods purchased from SanMar or for re-importation to the U.S. The exportation of The North Face, Alternative Apparel and New Era outside of the U.S. is prohibited. The exportation of Nike product outside of the U.S. is prohibited (including to Puerto Rico, Guam and the Virgin Islands).

Orders for SanMar Corporation goods (the “Goods”) are subject to the following terms and conditions of sale. These terms and conditions of sale shall govern the sale of Goods from SanMar Corporation (“SanMar”) to you and/or the company you are authorized to represent (“you”). SanMar’s performance is expressly made conditional upon your agreement to these terms and conditions of sale. Any provisions or conditions of any purchase order or other document, which are inconsistent with or in addition to these terms and conditions, are hereby rejected and shall be inapplicable and not binding upon SanMar.
1. Warranties, Disclaimer, Limitations on Liability. SanMar warrants only that the Goods shall be free from material defects on the delivery date, provided, you store and handle the delivered Goods in such a manner that meets or exceeds the storage and handling procedures utilized by SanMar.
You must provide SanMar with written notice of any warranty claims no later than thirty (30) days after receipt of the applicable order of Goods. Failure to provide written notice within such 30-day period shall void SanMar’s warranties in their entirety. As SanMar’s sole responsibility and liability, and YOUR ONLY AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY for any breach or breaches of such warranties, SanMar shall, upon written notice from you, either (at SanMar’s option) replace the defective portion of the Goods, or accept return thereof and refund the price paid by you for the defective portion. Any misuse, improper handling, storage, use, modification or alteration of the Goods by any third party shall void the forgoing warranty. You shall remain entirely responsible for any shipments by you or your company for purposes of returning defective products or packages hereunder to SanMar, and all risk of loss or damage during shipment shall be born by you. SanMar will pay (or reimburse you) for reasonable shipping and handling charges limited to valid warranty claims.
You agree and acknowledge that any benefits derived from use or resale of the Goods will depend on factors which vary from business to business and which are not within SanMar’s control. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SELECTION OF THE GOODS TO MEET YOUR, YOUR COMPANY’S OR ITS CUSTOMERS’ NEEDS, AND SANMAR MAKES NO WARRANTY AS TO THE RESULTS TO BE OBTAINED FROM THE USE OR SALE OF THE GOODS IN YOUR BUSINESS. THE WARRANTIES SET FORTH IN THIS SECTION ARE THE ONLY WARRANTIES MADE BY SANMAR. SANMAR EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS AND EXCLUDES ALL OTHER WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ORAL OR WRITTEN, ARISING BY LAW OR OTHERWISE AND ANY IMPLIED INDEMNITIES.
IN NO EVENT WILL SANMAR BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF OR RESULTING FROM THE PERFORMANCE OR BREACH OF THIS AGREEMENT, OR THE USE OR SALE OF GOODS BY YOU, OR ANY OTHER PARTY, OR FROM THE MANUFACTURE, SALE OR USE OF ANYTHING MADE BASED ON THE GOODS, EVEN IF SANMAR IS AWARE OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES, EXCEPT FOR INJURIES TO CONSUMERS DUE TO THE GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR WILLFUL MISCONDUCT OF SANMAR. You agree that, regardless of the form of action, whether in contract or tort, including negligence, SanMar’s liability for damages claimed by you with respect to the Goods shall not exceed fees received by SanMar from you for the applicable Goods hereunder. Regardless of the form of action, whether in contract or tort, including negligence, SanMar’s liability for damages claimed by third parties with respect to the Goods, as between SanMar and you shall not exceed fees paid to SanMar hereunder. No action, regardless of form, arising under this Agreement (other than an action for non-payment of any purchase prices or other amounts owed by you to SanMar), may be brought by either party more than one (1) year after the date of the alleged breach. SanMar shall not be liable for any failure to perform under this Agreement where such failure is due to any cause beyond SanMar’s control.
You hereby release and shall defend and hold SanMar and its owners and agents harmless from and against any actual or threatened claims, losses, liabilities (including without limitation any punitive damages and fines), costs and expenses (including without limitation reasonable costs of litigation and attorneys’ fees) related to third party actions (a) in which it is determined that SanMar is not at fault; and/or (b) arising from or relating to any acts or omissions by you, your company or your customers.
2. General. Our relationship is one of independent contractors. No agency, employment, partnership or joint venture shall be created by or founded upon this Agreement. You shall not make or assign, or represent to any party, by implication or otherwise, that it may make or assign, any warranty or representation by or for SanMar, nor shall you attempt, or represent that it is entitled, to make any commitment, waiver or settlement on behalf of SanMar or to pledge the credit of SanMar. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed under the laws of the State of Washington, without regard to any conflicts of law principles to the contrary. The parties consent to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the federal courts sitting in King County, Washington, unless no federal subject matter jurisdiction exists, in which case the parties consent to the exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the Superior Courts of King County, Washington. You agree not to object to this jurisdiction and venue, and hereby waive all defenses of lack of personal jurisdiction and forum non-conveniens. Any notice or request hereunder shall be made in writing delivered in person to an authorized officer of the respective party or mailed or transmitted by cable or telecopier, for SanMar, to the current contact information on our website at www.sanmar.com, and, for you, to the address SanMar has on file for you in your most recent approved credit application (unless changed by written notice of a different address). Your rights hereunder are personal to you and the company you represent, and may not be assigned or transferred in whole or in part by you, nor may any benefit hereunder inure to any trustee in bankruptcy, receiver, or successor, whether by operation of law or otherwise, without the prior written consent of SanMar, and any attempted assignment or transfer without such consent shall constitute a breach hereunder and shall be void. No omission or delay on the part of either party hereto in requiring due and punctual fulfillment of the obligations of the other party shall be deemed to constitute a waiver of any of the rights of the omitting or delaying party unless such rights are waived in the particular instance in a writing delivered to the other party, and no such waiver shall apply to any other instance or obligation. If any provision of this Agreement is held to be invalid or unenforceable to any extent in any context, it shall nevertheless be enforced to the maximum extent allowed by law and the parties’ fundamental intentions in that and other contexts, and the remainder of this Agreement shall not be affected thereby.
