Terms & Conditions
Imprinting / Ink Colors:
- The printing areas given are approximate and may vary according to type of artwork.
- Due to the density of some items, a slight wrinkle may occur when the printing pad hits the item, which may cause a slight breakup in the imprint.
- Some imprint colors will print differently, depending on the color of the product. For example: blue on yellow backgrounds may appear with a green tint, white on red backgrounds may appear with a pink tint and so forth.
- Exact color replication for reorders may vary.
- Two, three and four color imprints are available on some items, please inquire.
- PMS matching may be available depending on item. Exact PMS matching cannot be guaranteed.
- We can advise you of the best ink color for your product.
Please note, no two stress balls or shapes are exactly the same because they are made by hand. The density of the polyurethane varies from item to item. Therefore, it is impossible to guarantee a consistent uniform imprint. Although we feel our imprint quality is the best in the industry, a certain amount of distortion is unavoidable. We will make every effort to recommend the best layout of your ad copy for maximum quality.
The products shown are for demonstration purposes only. Actual product and color may vary slightly from what is displayed on your computer monitor.
Cancellations & Returns:
- Once you approve the Artwork Proof, production begins. If you require additional information or clarification, please contact us.
- Cancellations are charged a $50 fee plus any production charges accrued at the time will apply.
- The best way to avoid cancellation fees is to be 100% confident that you want to move forward with your order. Please make your selections carefully and thoughtfully.
- We cannot accept returns for imprinted merchandise.
