Bulk Order Shipments:
All shipments will be sent via UPS unless otherwise specified or other arrangements have been made. Freight estimates given by the factory are not guaranteed and are subject to change without notice as rates published by the shipper can and will fluctuate. Master cartons to protect against breakage are used and billed at $6.00(g) per carton for all UPS, FEDEX, or any other air freight carrier shipments. Please state if you wish to use a specific carrier when ordering or factory will select the most economical house carrier.
Title for goods passes to the buyer at F.O.B. point. All goods are shipped at the buyer´s risk and all claims must be made with the freight carrier, normally within 14 days of receipt of merchandise.
We do not ensure on-time delivery or safe carriage of goods. Recourse rests exclusively with the transportation company.

Payment & Production:
Great Online Promotions, LLC requires prepayment for all custom orders via credit card or check. Once your order is created either by us or via the online checkout process, you will be required to update to your payment on file for your custom order.
At the time of your order, we do not charge your credit card. Instead, we will place an ‘Authorization’ hold on your card for the funds needed to complete the order and only ‘Charge’ the card on file after your approval is given to us in writing of the proof. Once proof approval is received, we will assign a shipment date and send your order to our production teams.
No refunds or artwork alterations can be made after your order is approved and in production. Refunds can be given on any order still in the pre-production and artwork proofing stage. Please see your account representative for details and clarification if needed.

Upon acceptance of a proof of your design, customized promotional products may not be returned due to a graphic or design discrepancy. The proof of your custom design is a visual representation of the product you will receive in hand and all change requests must be handled before acceptance of the proof.
Please note that due to the nature of screenprinting and sublimation on fabrics, there is a standard margin variance of +-1/2 inch on all artwork designs. Your acceptance of the official proof is also acknowledgement of this policy.
Patent Holder Rights:
Please note that many of our products are patented in the USA by their respective patent holders. Your acceptance of the official production proof is also an acknowledgement of the rights of the patent holder. The patent holders may, at their discretion, modify, alter, or change their design in accordance with all applicable patent laws at their discretion.

Please note that we can’t guarantee PMS (Pantone) color matching for full color prints due to the nature of CMYK (full color) sublimation transfer printing. The sublimation process produces a high quality ‘representation’ onto a fabric, however exact PMS color matching should not be expected. Every effort will be made to ‘swatch’ out the colors with a close tonal value. Colors can and may vary on repeats and during the same run. Written acceptance of your ‘official proof’ indicates your acceptance of this policy.

Nature of Ceramics and Glassware:
Due to the inherent nature of ceramics and the properties of glassware produced by foreign and domestic manufacturers, there may be slight imperfections and irregularities which should not be perceived as defective. Variations in materials, firing temperatures and color pigments may result in variations in glaze and imprint colors. Ounces, sizes, and measurements are approximate and may vary from batch to batch, and within each batch. These variations are within industry standard and therefore must be considered acceptable.
Damaged merchandise includes items that have been damaged in shipping. If a shipment arrives at your door with obvious shipping damage, please refuse the delivery or talk to the driver who normally drives your route. You can call your local UPS field office or post office and tell them the shipment was damaged. You can find UPS contact information here or call 1-800-PICK-UPS.
If you have already accepted delivery and then find shipping damage, please call the merchant shipper immediately. You’ll find contact information for the merchant shipper in the product box. If you receive damaged merchandise, please save all packaging material and paperwork — do not throw anything away! If you attempt to return the merchandise yourself, you jeopardize our chances of making a claim, and you may not receive credit for the return.
Risk of Loss:
All items purchased from GO-Promo.com are made pursuant to a shipment contract. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the shipper or carrier.
Returning Defective Items:
Our factories run at full capacity most busy seasons with a standard overall defect rate of less than 2%. We will attempt to remedy any defective product claims within the scope of 2% of the quantity of your order. Returned items must be in their original packaging and in new condition, or they will be rejected and sent back to you. Contact email@example.com if you have questions.
Our account representatives work hard to avoid all shipping delays and encourage you to let us know of any deadlines you may have. We will be able to provide confirmations of delivery date only after an order is accepted. Our account representatives will confirm with you once you place the order a shipping deadline can be met before order processing. Please see product pages for estimated shipping time maps to your destination.
Great Online Promotions and it’s owners, affiliates and members will not be held responsible for 3rd party shipping delays due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, such as natural disasters or acts of God.
