Welcome to https://merchpier.com/(the “Site”). The Site is comprised of various web pages and is owned and operated by Merch Pier and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively referred to herein as “Merch Pier,” “we,” “us” and “our”).

Please note that your use of our Site constitutes your agreement to follow and be bound by those terms and conditions (the “Agreement”).

Shipping, Processing, & Delivery
Our shipping and processing charges are intended to compensate our company for the cost of processing your order, handling and packing the products you purchase and delivering them to you. Orders will not ship until they are paid in full, including any additional charges for customer requests to change the shipping service or provider.
Turnaround Time for Custom Orders
Turnaround time for all custom orders is around 4 weeks from the date the order is “Approved”. Completion of ALL of following tasks and events constitutes an order being Approved:
Orders will be delivered by the due date provided to us by the customer as long as it is 4 weeks from the date the order is Approved.
If the order due date is less than 4 weeks from the date the order is Approved, we will still make every effort to deliver your order by the due date you provide. However, at our discretion, 20% rush fee may be applied to any orders requiring a turnaround time of less than 20 business days. If the rush fee is not paid, Sorority Babe is not liable for orders that arrive after the order due date.
Even if a rush fee is paid, or shipping method is upgraded by the customer, order delivery is still subject to UPS transit time. Please reference the map below. These are estimated shipping times, not exact shipping times.
Shipping for customer orders
For all orders less than $100, standard shipping and processing charges will apply. We offer free shipping on custom orders over $100. Unless the customer requests otherwise, all custom orders will be shipped via UPS Ground or a comparable shipping service from another shipping provider. At our discretion, we may ship any order via the shipping provider and service of our choice. The customer is responsible for any additional fees resulting from their request to change the shipping method or provider.
We advise that the following garment care instructions be followed for any product purchased from Sorority Babe :
Turn garment inside
out before washing. Machine wash cold separately. Some colors may bleed. Never bleach. Tumble dry low. Never iron over decorations, Any items with embroidery or a pattern fabric should be dry cleaned. These fabrics have too thin of a weave to sustain a washing machine, even if turned inside out.
**Any product with specialty inks such as glitter, metallic, foil, and other non-standard inks should be AIR-DRIED.
