  1. Terms and Conditions of Sale

This entire Section 3 applies to e-commerce orders only. By placing an order with us on the Site (including a telephone order placed with our e-commerce customer service team), you acknowledge and agree that your purchase is expressly subject to all of the additional terms and conditions set forth below. Please note that we are not bound by any terms or conditions written, printed or otherwise included in any correspondence or documentation provided by you, unless we expressly and affirmatively accept such terms or conditions in writing.

3.1     Order of service or product and Fulfillment Process:

Immediately after you place your order of service or product online, you will receive an automated confirmation email from the Site. If you have artwork that you did not upload to the Site during the ordering process, you may simply reply to the order confirmation email, attach your art, and send. [NOTE: Our email system accepts messages up to 10 MB; if your email is larger, please contact Customer Service (see the Contact Us page) for an alternative delivery method.] Shortly thereafter during non-holiday business hours, one of our Customer Service representatives will review your order, dates and artwork, and contact you with any questions. Simultaneously, we will submit your order for processing, at which time you will receive a second order confirmation via email. It will look different from the one you initially receive from the Site, as it will come from a different system. Please note that our supplier’s stock/inventory availability will directly affect the production and shipping time for your order.

Your service and or product order will then go through the following phases:

(i)     Pre-Production Phase – This includes art preparation, submission of the proof to you for approval, our approval of your credit card/payment option, and our processing of your tax exempt certificate (if applicable). We will not submit your order to production until we have received your approval of the proof (if applicable).

(ii)     Production Phase – Production phase begins when we authorize the website designers to begin production. Again, we will not submit your order to production until we have received your approval of the proof if (applicable) For each product or service listed for publish on the Site, we list the ESTIMATED average production time (in days) for such product, as may be amended by us from time to time. Production days do not include the day your proof approval is received and also do not include shipping time. If we receive your proof approval after 3:00 PM (Central Time), it will be considered as if received the following business day. Actual production time may vary depending on the workload of the supplier we use for a given product and or service. Rush production and expedited shipping options may be available; contact Customer Service (see the Contact Us page) to discuss options.

(iii)     Shipping Phase – This refers to time in transit by the selected carrier.

3.2     Order Change/Cancellation:

3.2.1   Change/Cancellation by You Before the Pre-Production Phase Begins: You can change or cancel your order without incurring a change or cancellation fee in most cases. For a change order, the pricing may change from the original quote depending on your new requirements.

3.2.2   Change/Cancellation by You During the Pre-Production Phase: You can change or cancel your order, PROVIDED that you will be required to pay us all applicable charges (such as an art preparation charge; see our FAQ page for more information) incurred for all preparation work done up to your change or cancellation, plus any change or cancellation fee that may be charged by our supplier (which will be passed through to you). For a change order, the pricing may change from the original quote depending on your new requirements.

3.2.3   Change/Cancellation by You After the Production Phase Begins: IF YOU CANCEL YOUR ORDER, YOU WILL STILL BE OBLIGATED TO PAY THE FULL ORIGINAL AMOUNT QUOTED FOR YOUR ORDER. IF YOU CHANGE YOUR ORDER, YOU WILL BE OBLIGATED TO PAY THE FULL ORIGINAL AMOUNT QUOTED FOR YOUR ORDER, PLUS ANY ADDITIONAL AMOUNT DUE TO YOUR REQUESTED CHANGES.

3.2.4   Cancellation by Us Due to Shipment Delay: If, through no fault of yours, we are unable to ship your order by the shipment date that we have expressly and affirmatively confirmed to you in writing, we will promptly notify you of the situation and propose an alternative shipment date for your consideration. If you affirmatively accept our proposed alternative shipment date, the new date will supersede and replace the previously confirmed shipment date. If you do not accept our proposed alternative shipment date, we will cancel your order and issue a refund to you for the amount you previously paid for the canceled order.

3.2.5   Cancellation by Us for Other Reason: We reserve the right to cancel your order at any time for any reason upon written notice to you. In such case, we will issue a refund to you for the amount you previously paid for the canceled order.
