At T-Shirt Foundry, the general principle is:
"If we have the item in the building, we'll dispatch it the same day".
Below is a further explanation as to how our dispatch estimates (which form the basis of our On Time Guarantee) are calculated. These are shown in your basket before you order and are confirmed on your order confirmation email.
We operate an automated stock tracking system to keep track of the the 1000s of permutations of garment that we supply. The computer system uses the rules below to set the estimated dispatch date. Where we speak about out of stock, this means that the item is either not stocked in the colour/size chosen or it is stocked but all the ones we have been allocated to other customers.
When you add items into your basket, your order falls into one of 4 groups, each with a corresponding dispatch estimate.
- All of the order is IN STOCK, time is BEFORE 2pm
- Dispatch estimate is set as TODAY
- Dispatch estimate is set as TOMORROW (If after 2pm on a Friday then dispatch will be Monday)
- Dispatch estimate is set as TOMORROW (If before 6pm on a Friday then dispatch will be Monday)
- Dispatch estimate is set as THE DAY AFTER TOMORROW. (If after 6pm on Thursday then dispatch will be Monday)
