Policies

 

Payment Terms

Generally, artwork fees are due before any preparation of the order will begin. The remainder is due before the products are printed and/or shipped.

Returned Checks

A $35 fee will be assessed for all checks returned unpaid.

Refunds

Refunds will be issued if an order is changed or cancelled before printing is started. However, the artwork fee is non-refundable. Refunds generally will not be issued for customized products that have already been printed. Refunds may be given for non-customized products (for example, wire stands) if the customer returns those products that were shipped.
Full or partial allowances may given as appropriate in the rare case that products do not meet quality specifications.

Shipping Terms

All shipments will be made F.O.B. shipping point unless otherwise specified. Since shipments are generally through UPS or other common carriers other than the U.S. Postal Service, please provide us with a street address rather than a P.O. Box.

Sales Tax

We collect sales tax in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. In Alabama, we collect 4% state sales tax statewide; we also collect local sales taxes for sales to Madison County and Owens Cross Roads. In Florida and Georgia, we collect all state and local sales taxes. Customers in jurisdictions where tax is not charged may be liable for consumer’s use tax; please consult your tax professional.

The jurisdiction in which the sale is taxed is always the jurisdiction in which the customer receives the products. If you arrange for the products to be picked up from our supplier, our supplier’s location’s tax rules apply. If we ship you the products, the shipping address location’s tax rules apply.

Shipping (separately charged on the invoice) is taxable in Georgia but not in Alabama or Florida. All other charges, such as artwork fees, rush charges, and color match charges, are subject to sales tax in Alabama, Florida, and Georgia.

Sales to certain organizations (but generally not including churches or other non-profit organizations) are tax-exempt. See below.

Sales to Exempt Organizations

Sales to certain organizations are exempt from sales tax. However, do not confuse exemption from sales tax with exemption from income tax. Most “tax exempt” organizations are not exempt from sales tax. If you have a so-called “tax exempt” number formatted 00-0000000, that is an employer identification number (EIN); just because you have an EIN doesn’t mean you are exempt from anything. An EIN is issued by the Internal Revenue Service and has nothing to do with sales tax, which is strictly a state and local issue.

For sales where the customer receives the products outside of Alabama, Florida, or Georgia, we do not charge sales tax. If you order products to be shipped outside of Alabama, Florida, or Georgia, you may be liable for consumer’s use tax; please consult your tax professional.
