CUSTOM PRODUCT RETURN POLICY – T-SHIRTS, GARMENTS, EMBROIDERY & PRINTS
How much love do we put into our work? An unheard-of amount. Love times infinity love. We are the only company in the known universe that makes one-at-a-time hand-stitched goods to a big audience. Some customers choose not to stitch their items, and we hand-design those as well. Our return policy applies to both stitched and pressed items – all our Direct To Garment, Vinyl, Screen-print & Embroidered products.
Because so many of us here in Celebration FL work on your order before it goes out, you need to be sure your order is correct before sending it your way. Your order is in no way pre-fabricated- it doesn’t even exist before you think it up! That’s why we don’t do returns. In short, you buy it, you break it. All of our products are custom-made for you, and after hundreds of orders, we still think we’ve never made two identical items. In short, choose carefully, because you really can’t return them or get a refund.
EXCHANGES APPLY IF:
There are no cash or credit card refunds. The only form of refund ever given is a Delpuma credit.
Exchanges apply to orders that do not have the same size, color, font, spelling, or any provable way (e.g. you wrote arch the text and we made it straight) as indicated on your invoice. Naturally, if it’s our fault we’ll correct it and send it back out to you.
The item you are exchanging is a blank product.
We do not accept exchanges or offer credit for sizing issues. If you’re in doubt, buy a blank as a test. These are cheap and wonderful and if you pay for the shipping back we will refund you for a perfect blank.
If you have any questions feel free to contact us at [email protected]
PRINT TERMS & GRAPHIC DESIGN TERMS –
We strongly recommend that content uploaded to Delpuma for print fulfillment is:
At a minimum of 300 DPI at 1:1 ratio (or 100%). Content that does not meet this standard may experience print or images that are fuzzy, pixilated or otherwise distorted for which Delpuma does not accept any responsibility. We reserve the right to reject content that does not meet this standard, but we do not assume any obligation to verify that the content meets this criterion.
Designed in CMYK and uploaded to 4over in CMYK with no embedded color profile. (You may upload in RGB or some other standard if you choose, however, the color will be converted and Delpuma is not responsible for any inaccuracy or color shift that occurs as a result of the conversion).
Delpuma guarantees that its prints will meet CMYK industry standards. We cannot guarantee “match-print” color fidelity and cannot prevent slight color shift throughout an order. Because we cannot control the color reproduction of a customer’s computer monitor, we cannot guarantee that the actual print color will precisely match any preview as it appears your monitor. Delpuma is not responsible for any color shift in converted photographs (RGB images) with black, near black, or gray tones. Color shifts from a perceived black or gray must be addressed prior to file submission. Proofs do not guarantee black, near black or gray final output. Please note that the application of UV coating may have an effect upon or change the appearance of printed colors. 4over is not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product.
PRODUCTION TURNAROUND TIME
Delpuma’s standard turnaround is dependent on the product ordered; if you do not specify otherwise you will be charged for the standard turnaround for the relevant product.
Turnaround times do not include shipping time. The estimated date you will receive your order is a combination of the selected turnaround time and shipping time. Once your order is placed your turnaround time generally cannot be changed and billing charges will not be reversed.
For your convenience, depending on the product ordered, Delpuma offers a variety of different production turnaround times. Not all of the following turnaround times are offered on every product; the available turnaround times will be listed with the product as part of the order process.
Same Day (not available in all locations) — all production ready jobs received and confirmed by no later than 10:00 a.m. will be ready for shipping or pick by the end of the same day. Production ready jobs not placed and confirmed by 10:00 a.m. will be treated as having been timely received on the following business day.
Pick up is available only until 6:00 p.m. (orders completing after 5:00 p.m. may not be available for pick up until the following morning).
Free delivery (if available) will be on the next scheduled delivery day. We do not offer same day turnaround combined with same day free delivery. For example, if your free delivery schedule is on Wednesday and Friday, a same day turnaround order placed on a Monday will not be delivered until Wednesday; if free delivery is available every day, Monday through Friday, the order would be delivered on Tuesday.
Same day turnaround is only available for quantities up to 500.
We reserve the right to print same day turnaround product on our digital presses.
Next Business Day — all production ready jobs received and confirmed by no later than 10:00 a.m. will be ready by the end of the next business day. Production ready jobs not placed and confirmed by 10:00 a.m. will be treated as having been received before 10:00 a.m. the following business day.
Next Day Plus 1 – – all production ready jobs received and confirmed by no later than 1:00 p.m. will be ready the by the end of the second business day after receipt. Production ready jobs not placed and confirmed by 1:00 p.m. will be treated as having been received before 1:00 p.m. the following business day.
2-4 Day — all production ready jobs received and confirmed by no later than 1:00 p.m. will be ready between 1:00 p.m. the second business day after receipt and 1:00 p.m. on the fourth business day after receipt.
5-7 Day — all production ready jobs received and confirmed by no later than 1:00 p.m. will be ready between 1:00 p.m. the fifth day after receipt and 1:00 p.m. on the seventh day after receipt.
Please note: – Turnaround times for jobs that Delpuma does not deem production ready (e.g., those with problems or that require a proof) will not begin until the job is approved and ready for production.
If you choose group shipping this may add at least one additional day to your chosen turnaround time.
Although we endeavor to ship the quantity ordered, Delpuma reserves the right to ship within 5% over or under the requested quantity. If a minimum quantity is a necessity we recommend that you adjust the total quantity ordered to account for the possibility of an underrun.
ORDER APPROVAL/ PROOFING
Delpuma has and assumes no obligation to proof or otherwise review the content or layout of your order. Even if a Delpuma customer service representative has inquired as to the attributes of one of your prior orders, you are not entitled nor should you assume that Delpuma will review any other order you place. Orders are printed in their “as submitted” form and the customer are fully responsible for final proof and layout verification and approval prior to submission to the print process. Delpuma DOES NOT make any changes to customer files. Once you submit an order to the print process you are agreeing that you are fully satisfied with the document layout and content and you accept responsibility for any errors therein. 4over will assume that you have verified the spelling, grammar, content, and layout, etc. are all correct and it will not accept any liability for errors such as misspelling, graphics, grammar, damaged fonts, punctuation, transparency, overprint, improper layout, bleeding, erroneous cut or fold lines, die lines or crop marks, size, etc.
Delpuma does not provide proof of any order unless the customer requests it as part of the order process and it is an option available for the product. If you request a proof then it is your responsibility to verify the proof against the original (and to correct any spelling or grammatical errors, etc).
If a proof is requested, then your job will not be processed or deemed production ready until you have approved the proof in writing. Please be aware that this may impact the job turnaround time.
Delpuma offers two options for EDDM services: Print Only and Full Service.
The EDDM products are printed for delivery to you or for pickup. You may choose the have your products bundled in packs of 50 or 100, pieces or you may choose to have the entire order delivered “loose,” i.e., not bundled. If you select Print Only, we do not fulfill any of the USPS requirements for EDDM (whether Retail or Business Mail Entry Unit) products other than the bundling service; you are solely responsible for the setup and delivery of the products to the appropriate United States Postal Service (“USPS”) location. We do not select or assist in selecting the postal routes for your EDDM mailing, and we are not responsible for (and do not verify) the layout or setup of your EDDM mailing piece, including, without limitation, the sufficiency and placement of the address and mailing indicia location. Please consult the USPS website for applicable rules and guidelines for proper EDDM processing.
Full-Service EDDM provides an interactive map that allows you to select USPS postal routes for your order. This information is provided on an “as is, where is” basis and Delpuma make no representation that the information is current or accurate at the time your order is placed. Once you have selected the appropriate routes, you must use the Delpuma provided template (with pre-set mailing indicia) to create your EDDM mailing piece and to upload the file to Delpuma. If you moved the location of the mailing indicia or address section, please verify that you have complied with USPS rules and guidelines.
Once uploaded, your EDDM order will be printed as received with the number of products needed for delivery. It will be bundled, prepared for mailing and dropped off to the USPS location closest to the Delpuma production facility that is fulfilling your order. Upon delivery to this USPS location, USPS assumes all responsibility for delivery to your selected postal route(s), and your order is subject to all USPS rules, guidelines and timelines. Any delay, damage or loss occurring after delivery of your order to USPS is the responsibility of the USPS.
When you place your Full Service Order, you can select a “Target in Mailbox Date,” which is typically a minimum of twelve (12) business days from the date you place the order. The Target in Mailbox Date is an estimate based on information provided to us by the USPS. Delpuma does not guarantee that your order will be delivered to your selected postal route(s) by or on a chosen Target in Mailbox Date.
If your order includes time-sensitive or dated materials, we recommend that you use the Print Only option, place your order well in advance of the date needed for delivery to the USPS and select a shipping service level that ensures delivery to you by a certain date. If you decide to use the Full-Service option for time-sensitive or dated material, you are assuming the risk that the materials may not be delivered on time and we recommend selecting a Target in Mailbox Date that is at least 25 days from the date you place your order. A better alternative for time-sensitive or dated material may be to use Delpuma mailing service. Please contact our customer service department for more information.
The Full-Service option requires the use of Delpuma’s mailing indicia. We provide USPS approved templates, with the mailing indicia and address location pre-loaded, for your download and use. If you move or alter the position of the mailing indicia or address section, however, you are solely responsible for ensuring the new positioning complies with USPS requirements. We will not verify your compliance with USPS requirements when you upload the file to us for processing.
Please Note: No refunds will be given, whether you choose the Print Only or Full Service option, if the mailing indicia and/or address area do not meet USPS requirements.
PROMOTIONS, SPECIAL OFFERS, AND DISCOUNT COUPONS
From time to time Delpuma may offer promotions and special offers identified by a Coupon Code. Each Coupon Code will have different requirements and rewards. Typically, you will receive a Coupon or an email that contains the Coupon Code. If you receive a Coupon or email that contains a Coupon Code, please read it carefully — all requirements stated in the Coupon or email must be met in order to receive or take advantage of the promotion or special offer. Unless otherwise stated all Coupon Codes are limited to one-time use and are limited to current Delpuma account holders in good standing.
Promotions and special offers may be limited to certain account holders (e.g., they may be limited to loyalty levels or the terms may vary by loyalty level).
To take advantage of a promotion or special offer, enter the Coupon Code in the applicable field when placing an order. Not all products are eligible for promotions and special offers. If a Coupon Code does not function when entered, it means the product at issue does not qualify for the promotion or special offer; this determination is final.
A Coupon Code may not be combined with any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward offered by Delpuma (including Rewards Points redemption). If you enter a Coupon Code or take advantage of a promotion, special offer, discount or reward (including Coupon Codes issued for Rewards Points redemption), you will not be able to enter another Coupon Code or take advantage of any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward.
Coupon Codes only apply to products ordered through Delpuma’s website; they may not be used in conjunction with the purchase of products sold by or under the brands of third parties (including, Delpuma affiliates and/or websites linked to any existing Delpuma website). Coupon codes can not be applied to custom orders.
Coupon Codes cannot be used to pay for taxes, shipping, and handling or other charges. If the promotion or special offer has a minimum purchase requirement, taxes, shipping and handling and other charges do not apply towards the minimum purchase amount.
If a promotion or special offer is for a defined amount (e.g. $10.00 off) and applies to a multiple- item order (e.g., multiple sets of business cards), it will be allocated to each eligible item based on the proportion of the item’s value to the total value of all eligible items, excluding shipping and handling, taxes and other charges. Certain items may not be eligible for the promotion and will not be included in the calculation.
Promotions and special offers are only valid for a limited time. They will expire on the date or within the timeframe specified in the offer. If no date or timeframe is specified, a promotion or special offer is valid until the end of the month in which the Coupon Code is first eligible for use.
Coupon Codes (and the Coupons or emails that contain them) are not for resale, have no independent cash value, are not redeemable for cash, and will not be replaced if lost, stolen or deleted.
Coupon Codes will not be retroactively applied to orders already placed with Delpuma.
If a Coupon Code is used and the entire order is canceled or rejected, or if you return all items in the order then, subject to the terms of our Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy, you will be refunded only the actual amount paid. The coupon code will no longer be valid.
If only part of your order is canceled or rejected, or if you return only some of the items in your order, then subject to the terms of our Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy, the relevant discount or promotion will be applied to the item(s) that are kept. The foregoing notwithstanding, under no circumstances will a promotion or special offer of any kind be applied to create a credit balance. If the balance of a partially canceled, rejected or returned order is less than the value of the promotion or special offer, the promotion or special offer will be applied to the outstanding balance (not including shipping and handling, taxes and other charges). The balance of the promotion or special offer is void, and the Coupon Code will no longer be valid.
Delpuma reserves the right to discontinue a promotion or special offer or coupon at any time and with immediate effect.
All prices and dollar amounts on this Website are in United States dollars. Delpuma presently accepts the following credit cards: VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We reserve the right to stop accepting credit cards from one or more issuers.
In order for you to register with and order products and services from Delpuma it is necessary for you to provide and keep on file a valid, authentic and current credit card, which you are authorized to use. By submitting a credit card number to Delpuma you are representing and warranting that the credit card information you provide is valid, authentic, current, and one that you are authorized to use it. You agree that in the event the credit card information you have provided becomes invalid, out of date or that you are no longer authorized to use the card, you will immediately provide another credit card number that is valid, authentic and current, and which you are authorized to use. Some electronic transactions may require extended processing in addition to credit card authorization. You will be notified by a Delpuma customer service representative if extended processing is required to complete your transaction request through our Website. This may affect to your estimated delivery date.
Unless Delpuma agrees otherwise, all product and service orders must be paid for at the time of the order and accompanied by an authorization to charge a credit card on file with Delpuma or to charge a valid, authentic and current credit card, which you are authorized to use, that you provide at the time of the order. (If new credit card information is provided at the time of the order it will be added to the credit card information kept on file; Delpuma will not assume that previously provided credit card information is not valid). If a charge against a credit card you provide is not authorized or accepted, or is subsequently refused or rejected, we reserve the right to cancel your order without notice or liability.
In the event you make one or more changes to an existing order that incur additional charges, those charges will be applied to the credit card that was used for the original order, or to an alternative credit card that you provide to us.
In the event that Delpuma and you have agreed upon an alternative method of payment and the payment is not received within 5 business days of the date on which payment was due you hereby irrevocably agree that Delpuma may charge one or more of the credit card(s) you have on file for the full amount of your outstanding account balance.
Delpuma remains the owner of the goods until such time as these and all other sums owed by the buyer to Delpuma are paid in their entirety. If not paid when agreed upon Delpuma can reclaim the product by entering the premises and recovering said items.
A print order can be canceled at any time prior to it entering into production. If you cancel an order prior to it entering into production a Delpuma Customer Service representative will inform you of any cancellation charges incurred. (Please allow at least 10 business days for any refunded monies to be credited to your account). A print order cannot be canceled and no refund will be given once it has entered into production or any process thereafter. No refunds are issued for Logo and Graphic design services. All cancellations must be completed through this website by accessing your Pending Orders. If you do not see a button for cancellation, the job has gone into production and cannot be canceled.
If within forty five (45) days or later of you placing an order and Delpuma has not received any files or incomplete files from which to complete your job, Delpuma may at its option cancel the order and refund any payment charged to your credit card.
REPRINT AND REFUND
We reserve the right to update and revise this Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy without prior notice to reflect changes in our policies, services and/or in response to our customers’ feedback. When we do make changes to this Policy we will revise the “last updated” date at the top of this Policy. Please make sure that you review it frequently as any time you place an order with Delpuma Marketing the current Returns/Refund/Reprint Policy will apply.
We guarantee that our printed products will not be defective in accordance with industry standards. You may contact our Customer Service Department and a Delpuma representative will be pleased to help address any general issues you may have with your print job.
If you believe your print job is defective or has not otherwise met your requirements please contact Delpuma, IN WRITING via the online support system, within six (6) business days of receiving your order. If you do not contact us within this time frame we will assume that your job was satisfactory upon receipt and will be under no obligation to provide a refund or reprint. Once you have contacted us, we will then have five (5) business days to determine if a reprint or refund is appropriate, or to advise you that more information is needed to process your inquiry. If we request additional information to verify an inquiry and it is not provided within a reasonable time, we will be under no obligation to provide a refund or reprint. If we determined that a product is in fact defective or has not otherwise met our obligations, one of the following two resolutions will be offered:
1. We will reprint the print job with rush production.
2. We will refund the original order price.
We reserve the right to request samples of any allegedly defective merchandise prior to either of the above resolutions being agreed to.
A Customer Service representative will generally contact you within 24-48 hours of us making the determination that a reprint or refund is appropriate in order to confirm the approved solution. If you do not make contact with our representative within five (5) business days of their first attempt to contact you with the approved solution we will assume that the issue has been otherwise resolved and no reprint or refund will be given. Once the approved solution is agreed then, unless we agree otherwise, you must return the entire original print order to us, at the address provided by our Customer Service representative, within 15 calendar days after the date the solution is approved. If you do not return it within this time frame you agree that the original order will be charged to your credit card on file with Delpuma.
A refund or reprint will only be possible after an approved solution has been authorized and, unless we agree otherwise, provided that the entire original print order has been returned to and received by us.
When applicable, a refund will be issued within 10 business days of our receipt of the original product order.
A reprint will begin rush production within one (1) business day of our confirmed receipt of the product or such earlier time as we may agree to.
