POLICIES and NOTICES
We do not have the exact pricing listed for each of the items we can print or the quantities. This is due to the fact that we may be able to find you a better price than the competition. Also we love to give our customers discounts in order to save them money. We have starting prices for each thing we can print. If you are looking for something specific based on size, color, quantity, and a matte or gloss finish then you will need to contact us for a specific price quote. In addition we also have price matching other print companies. We will give you the best price or you will get a store credit or free business cards. Once we give you a specific price quote then we upload it to our quotes webpage with under your name so you can process the payment through our shopping cart.
We accept the following forms of payment. Credit/Debit Cards, all types. Check/Money Orders, we will process the payment first to make sure it clears before completing the order. We also accept PayPal payments as well, eChecks will be treated just like regular checks, once the payment clears then we will complete the order. You can process your payment through our website in our easy step by step shopping cart. We do not send order to the printer until final payment has been made to complete the order. We do NOT offer credit terms and invoicing for clients.
We do not keep pending orders in our shopping cart for more than 48 hours after work has been completed and the final proof has been approved. Since we do not send work to the printer until full payment has been made, orders usually remain in a pending status until payment has been completed. If you are sending us a check for the order then we will keep the order in a pending status for a full week until we receive the check or money order, but orders that have been completed when it comes to design work and receiving print files will still be in a pending status until final payment has been made and it will only remain in a pending status for 48 hours before being deleted from our system. In addition, discounts that we offered for that order will be null and void. We can still apply the same discounts to your order once you are ready to finally make payment, but you will have to contact us about the discounts we offered before if the order is past 48 hours since work was complete and payment still has not been made for the order. If you have trouble making payments for order on time then you can always keep a credit card on file with us so we can charge your account automatically when you are ready to order and get 5% off your orders. If you have a Premium Account with us or a Wholesale Account then you will receive an extra 2% discount on your orders on top of the discounts you are receiving for being a Premium Customer or a Wholesale Customer.
You can get a proof sent to you in an email for an extra $10.00. While you may not need a proof for everything you get printed we recommend that for big projects you get a proof for you order. Please understand that we do not edit your files. All customers are responsible for editing their own work. If customers find typos on their print work after it’s been printed there will not be any refunds of you do not like the work. We guarantee the quality of the printing and that’s it. This is where it’s helpful to have a proof to verify that your work has the quality you are looking for.
