How It Works
Step 1: Request an estimate
You can fill out the Estimate Request Form on this page. If you’re viewing this on a mobile device, click here.
Step 2: Review project details
After we have all the info and files we need, we’ll get back to you with a quote or estimate (usually within 48hrs).
Step 3: Approve Proofs (if applicable) and submit your order
Once your final design files are ready, it’s time to place your order and let our printers get to work.
Step 4: Fall in love with hemp
After you receive your order, you’ll probably start wondering what else you can do with hemp…
Request An Estimate
Fill out the form below to get started.
We accept the following file types:
.pdf, .ai, .psd, .eps, .jpg/.jpeg, .png, & .tiff
Please note: some jobs have specific filetype requirements. If your job has specific requirements, we’ll let you know. Please see our File Setup Guide for more information.
Due to the custom nature of our work, each project takes a different amount of time to complete. That said, most custom orders are turned around in 2-3 weeks.
Standard orders usually take 1-2 weeks and can often be expedited for even faster turnaround and delivery.
If you need your job completed by a certain date, please let us know in your initial request so we can accommodate your timeline.
Estimates are non-binding approximate job costs. Quotes, on the other hand, are guaranteed prices that remain valid for 14 days. Neither quotes nor estimates include shipping costs.
Please note that quotes are not available on all jobs. Quotes are generally reserved for products with standardized production processes and/or projects for which all requirements (materials, labor, etc.) can be determined prior to processing.
If we cannot produce a quote due to the nature of your project, we will provide the most accurate estimate possible.
Neither quotes nor estimates include shipping costs. Shipping is calculated after an order has been processed. We’re always happy to provide a non-binding estimate of shipping costs upon request.
There is no single print provider that offers all of the paper stocks and specialty print techniques we offer our clients. For this reason, we sometimes need to coordinate your job with two or more providers, which can cause delays in generating quotes or estimates.
For most common jobs (i.e. business cards, postcards, flyers, etc.) with standard digital printing, along with any jobs we print in-house, we return quotes or estimates within 24-48hrs.
Regardless of how simple or complex your job is, we’ll always keep you updated at each and every stage of the order process.
No. Certain paper stocks work better for certain jobs, and some printing techniques are only compatible with certain papers. This is true with “regular” paper as well as hemp paper.
We remove the guesswork and make sure that every project incorporates the best materials and techniques for the job. We’ll review all your options with you beforehand and even send samples (charges may apply — samples subject to availability).
Please note: this concept also applies to our apparel products (i.e. not all of our apparel products can be screen printed or embroidered, but some certainly can be).
We offer returns on pre-designed retail products from our online store. Products returned to us within the 30-day return window will be refunded in full. Returned products must be in new and undamaged condition to be eligible for a refund.
We do not accept returns on custom orders of any kind.
In some cases, discounted reprints may be available for custom orders. Please see our Returns & Refunds Policy for more information.
Thanks for choosing hemp! Please review our order policies and FAQs before placing an order or submitting an estimate request.
Following our File Setup Guide helps us avoid preventable mistakes and delays caused by file setup errors.
Preventable file setup errors include low resolution (blurry or pixelated images), insufficient bleed area (content gets cut off), and incorrect color gamut (colors don’t look right).
Print files should always be set up for the specific print job at hand because different printing methods, print products, and printing machines have different requirements for bleed, color gamut, etc.
Please review our File Setup Guide to become familiar with the file setup requirements for your job. If you’re unsure of your needs, you can always contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your specific job requirements.
Important: Custom Hemp is not responsible for proofing your content. We will not alter the design contents or layout. We will make suggestions if we see something out of place, and our pre-press team will flag any problematic designs, but it is the client’s responsibility to make sure the design, layout, and typography are free of errors before approving the final proof. Once your proof is approved, your project will be printed according to the specifications of the approved file(s).
Pricing and Fees
For more information about our pricing and fees, please visit the Pricing and Fees page.
Estimates are non-binding approximate job costs. Estimates are not the same as quotes, and estimates do not reflect the final cost of a project. Please view estimates as a ballpark figure to get an idea of how much a job might cost, not as a binding quote.
Final costs will be determined by materials, labor, and quantity of units purchased, all of which may change after our initial estimate. We always review possible pricing outcomes with the client prior to accepting a deposit and beginning a job.
Quotes are guaranteed prices and remain valid for 14 days. We include shipping costs with quotes whenever the client provides a delivery address before we generate the quote. If your quote does not include shipping or any other fees, we’ll let you know.
Please note that quotes are not available on all jobs. Quotes are generally reserved for products with standardized production processes and/or projects for which all requirements (materials, labor, etc.) can be determined prior to processing (standardized products like business cards and flyers usually fall into this category).
If we cannot produce a quote due to the complex nature of your project, we will provide the most accurate estimate possible.
Do quotes or estimates include shipping?
We will include shipping costs with quotes when the client provides a delivery address before we generate the quote.
If you received an estimate, shipping costs will be determined after the order is printed and packaged for shipment. We will reach out to you to discuss the available options when you make your final payment (we typically ship with UPS or FedEx).
We’re happy to provide a shipping estimate upon request.
Standard Orders v. Specialty Orders v. Custom Orders
“Standard orders” are orders that only include items with standardized production methods and pricing. These orders can be quoted with 100% accuracy prior to processing and include most popular print products like business cards, postcards, flyers, t-shirts, etc.
Please note: not all product options are eligible for standardized pricing.
“Specialty orders” are orders that include any item with non-standardized production methods and pricing. These orders cannot always be quoted with 100% accuracy and, therefore, we only provide estimates prior to processing. Specialty orders include all specialty print products, any products with custom die-cutting, and apparel products with custom branding (branded labels, hangtags, etc.).
“Custom orders” are any orders with custom printing, branding, or personalization of any kind.
Since hemp fiber is a re-emerging market, not all hemp products are available at all times. If a quoted product is unavailable for more than 14 days, we will need to produce a new quote for your project once the required product becomes available again.
Standard orders must be paid in full before we begin processing the order. Some standard orders may be eligible for deposits.
A minimum 75% deposit is required on all specialty orders to begin processing. We will not begin processing a specialty order until we have received a deposit.
Deposits are non-refundable, and deposits only guarantee that an order will be processed. Deposits do not guarantee delivery of your order. Delivery will only be guaranteed after the order has been processed and the remaining balance has been paid in full.
Deposits are calculated based on the quote or estimate provided to the client. Shipping is not included in the deposit calculation. For projects based on estimates (instead of quotes), any difference in the final balance from the original estimate will be due, in addition to shipping charges, when the order is ready to ship.
Orders will not ship until the balance has been paid in full.
Turnaround time refers to the time it takes to process and produce your order. It begins as soon as you make your deposit payment and ends when your entire project is ready to ship. It does not include shipping time.
Turnaround time varies based on the job. We can only provide a turnaround date after proofs have been approved. Turnaround times are always estimated and never guaranteed.
After proofs have been approved, some orders can be expedited for a faster turnaround time. If you need a job completed by a certain date, please let us know before we begin working on your quote so we can include options and estimates for expedited processing if needed.
Please note, expedited processing is not the same as expedited shipping. Expedited shipping may be selected after the order is printed and before you pay your final balance.
We currently only accept orders from customers in the United States and Canada. We hope to expand our footprint soon.

Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ)
The minimum order quantity (MOQ) varies with each project. We do not have a universal MOQ and, as a friendly reminder, our mission is to help everyone use hemp. With that in mind, please remember the following information is subject to change.
The minimum order quantity for most standard projects ordered through the web store is 100 units per unique product or variation. This includes products like business cards and flyers.
The minimum order quantity for most custom projects is 1000 units per unique product or variation.
Some products may have larger MOQs, and some product quantities may be combined to meet MOQ requirements. Please contact us for more details regarding your specific project.
Maximum order quantity
The maximum order quantity varies with each job. Please contact us for details regarding your specific project.
Why are there order maximums?
Our mission is to help convert every tree-based paper product to hemp, but many hemp products are not yet produced at the scale required to fulfill the largest orders. As a result, some projects face periodic supply limitations. We hope our business, with your support, will help reduce and eventually eliminate these limitations over time by growing and supporting the demand for hemp products.
Please submit an estimate request for more details.
Variable Data Printing (VDP)
We offer variable data printing (VDP) with minimum order requirements that vary by product.
Please note that VDP may be limited to certain products, design layouts, or paper stocks, and additional charges may apply.
Please submit an estimate request for more details.
We provide a range of complementary file setup services with every order. File setup services may include document resizing, color adjustments, layout adjustments, and other small fixes to ensure your design looks great on hemp.
We do not create content or produce design elements for our clients. We focus on producing excellent printed products, and our limited complimentary design services are tailored to this goal.
If your documents need more than just a few of the minor adjustments listed above, we offer additional design services billed at an hourly rate of $100.
Please contact us for more information about our design services.
Shipping charges are calculated after an order has been processed and packaged for shipping. Non-binding shipping estimates may be provided alongside estimates or quotes, but we won’t know the final shipping cost until your order is packaged and ready to ship.
Shipping charges for most standard products, such as business cards, postcards, and flyers, can be estimated with a high degree of accuracy, but shipping costs for custom projects can be notoriously difficult to determine beforehand.
Refunds, Returns, and Store Credit
We accept returns and offer full refunds on stocked and pre-printed retail items such as t-shirts, posters, and non-custom items purchased through our web store.
Returned items must show no evidence of being damaged or worn and must be returned in their original, undamaged, packaging. We reserve the right to refuse returns of items that have been damaged or that show evidence of being worn, washed, or used.
We do not accept returns on custom orders, and we do not provide cash refunds.
Eligible custom orders processed with errors caused by Custom Hemp will be refunded with store credit.
Custom orders processed with errors caused by improper design layout, low file resolution, typography errors, etc., will not be refunded but may be eligible for a reprint (see below).
Specialty orders will be eligible for refunds or reprints as determined on a case-by-case basis.
Please contact email@example.com for help with a return.
Please be sure to triple-check your files and proofs for any errors before you approve your job for processing!
If you receive an order that’s damaged, please document the damage (with video or photo evidence) immediately and contact firstname.lastname@example.org. We will investigate to determine if the damage was caused in production, shipping, or after delivery.
Orders damaged after the order has been delivered will be considered the client’s responsibility and we cannot refund such orders.
Misprints and Reprints
If you’d like to make a change to an order (or an item in an order) after we’ve begun processing the order, or if errors are discovered after a project has been processed but before it’s been shipped, we may be able to reprint the order or specific item for an additional reprinting fee. The reprinting fee (usually 50%-75% of the original print cost) is due in full before the reprint order is processed.
Not all orders are eligible for reprints. Reprints may be accepted or denied at our sole discretion.
We do not currently have a reseller or affiliate program, but we do offer commissions for first-time referrals. Please contact email@example.com for more information.
Wholesale and Bulk Orders
Most custom orders are delivered at wholesale prices (for example, custom retail-ready tee shirts, custom posters, greeting cards, etc).
If you’re looking for bulk hemp materials, or if you need more than 5,000 units of a particular item, please contact us so we can assist you further.
