General Ordering Information
What if I receive more or less than I ordered?
It is standard practice in the promotional product industry that some suppliers may send up to +/- 5% of the quantity ordered. This is not under our control. Your final invoice will be adjusted to reflect the actual quantity received.
Can I cancel or change my order?
You can cancel at any time prior to the order going into production. Once items have been imprinted with your artwork, we can no longer accept a cancellation. If you need to change your order for any reason, please contact your Promotional Product Specialist and they’ll be happy to assist you.
What are set-up charges?
Most of the promotional products that we offer have ‘set-up’ charges (screen charges, die charges, etc.). These charges are for the supplier to create the screen, die or other necessary items to imprint your specific artwork. These are not charges for “artwork”. Keep in mind that if you ever place an exact reorder for the same item, you’ll usually pay a much lower set-up charge.
Will I see a proof before my order goes into production?
Yes, just ask! An ‘e-proof’ of your item will be emailed you and must be approved by you before we proceed unless you’re on a tight deadline that doesn’t allow for this.
What if my business is exempt from sales tax?
If your organization is exempt from sales tax, please supply your Promotional Product Specialist with your tax exemption documentation or resale certificate.
Can I order in quantities smaller or larger than those shown?
In most cases, the minimum quantity shown is the requirement, however we encourage you to contact us if you need fewer items than shown as the required minimum order. We can oftentimes find a comparable product with a lower minimum order quantity.
Use of Trademarks
If we use artwork you have supplied to imprint your product, you are warranting that you have unrestricted right and authority to use and distribute that artwork.
