Terms of Service

 

Artwork

Etching: To ensure the best possible etch for your products, all artwork should be black and white vector art. Ideal formats include .ai, .eps and .pdf created in Adobe Illustrator. Artwork that is placed or linked into these documents do not meet these requirements. Artwork should be created to hold a minimum of a 1 pt. line weight.

Printing: To ensure the best possible print for your products, all artwork should be CMYK and at least 150 dpi. 300 dpi is recommended. Artwork dimensions should be sized for the area where it will be printed. Scaling artwork is not recommended as it can introduce artifacts/pixelation thereby reducing the quality of the printed imagery.

Fonts: Simple, bold sans-serif fonts are recommended. Many serif and script fonts contain marks that will not etch properly. If copy is sent with artwork, remember to send it in outlines or accompanied by the font file. Small marks such as registration ®, copyright © and trademark ™ need to be enlarged, deleted or turned into a dot. Artwork that does not meet these requirements, or needs modification to ensure a quality imprint, will have an art charge at a rate of $60 (C) per hour. If art charges will be incurred, customer service will notify you prior to set-up.

Emailing Art: Send to: art1@craftlinepromo.com – Please compress files prior to sending via email.

 

Blank Merchandise

For blank merchandise, contact customer service for pricing. There is a 15% restocking charge on all returned plain merchandise. Returns are not accepted without prior authorization.

 

Brand Shapes (Laser Cutting)

Pricing is calculated by drawing a rectangular border around the artwork. The total area of the rectangle is used to determine the appropriate pricing tier. Orders with less than 10 pieces per design will incur a $20 (C) less than minimum charge per design.

 

Cancellations

Once we have received your purchase order, approval of the virtual proof, and your payment (unless you are on terms), your order cannot be cancelled. Cancellations must be submitted in writing via email and are subject to approval. No cancellations on orders will be accepted if we have already ordered the stock, or if your order has been produced. Glassware is subject to a 20% restocking fee if the order is canceled prior to printing. If an order is cancelled before any proof/artwork has been started, there will be no charge.

 

Color-Fill

Color-fill is available on most items in our catalog for $8.00 (C), per color, per item, per location. Choose from the color palette shown below. All marble and granite items include color-fill as shown at no extra charge. Complex designs are subject to an additional fee of $20 (C) per item. Determining whether a design is complex or not is at our discretion. Customers will be notified prior to production if a color-fill design is considered complex. PMS colors can be “approximated” for $60 (C) per order, regardless of order size. Note that the $8.00 (C) per piece, per color, per location charges still apply. Please understand that an “exact” match is typically not possible, but we can usually achieve your color(s) within a couple of shades. The color matching fee is a one-time charge and will not occur on reorders. Rush orders are not available when color matches are required. Please allow additional time for a proof and up to 10 business days for your actual order.

Please note, FDA regulations do not permit color-fill on items to be used for consuming food or drink. Color swatches are approximate, and may vary slightly from actual color-fill paint.

 

Confirmation

Orders are promptly acknowledged via email. Please review the acknowledgment carefully for any discrepancy. Our acknowledgment and/or your approval supersede all terms on the customer’s PO unless contested prior to the production of your order.

Printed product production times are normally 15-20 business days. Deep etched production times will be quoted and vary. Unusually large or complex orders may require additional working time and will be estimated on an individual basis. Ship dates cannot be guaranteed for orders that are held up due to credit issues, lack of artwork, art approval, etc. Your order will not be entered into the production schedule without new customer forms, payment and other approvals. We are not responsible for missed ship dates due to acts beyond our control.

 

Proofs

We STRONGLY RECOMMEND getting a pre-production proof for an item you have not ordered from us in the past or for larger orders. Pre-production proofs allow you to inspect the product quality, decoration, imprint size and location, etc. We are not responsible for discrepancies on items if you choose not to order a pre-production proof, You agree that you will accept 100% liability for the order. Production proof cost is determined by the item and total quantity ordered.
