Yes, however there is some clarification required here.
Some customers conflate, or confuse expedited processing with expedited shipping.
Processing and Shipping are two mutually exclusive parts of the fulfillment processes, and understanding what each term means will help to alleviate confusion, especially when a customer purchases upgraded shipping services, and expects their order to also be processed:
- Expedited Processing: This is also known as "Rush" or "Priority" servicing, which simply means you wish to have your order completed, and fulfilled sooner than under normal circumstances.
- Expedited Shipping: While processing through checkout, you can select from a variety of available shipping carriers, and service options, from standard Ground Delivery services to Next Day/Overnight. Expedited shipping simply means that, based on the options selected, your order may be delivered much sooner, once the order has been fulfilled, and transferred to the carrier for shipment/delivery.
Expedited shipping services do not have any effect on the processing, or fulfillment times for any order.
For clarifications on Rush Processing, refer to the appropriate question, under Products & Services.
While these situations are unfortunate, they do happen, and because of this, every product is sent out with insurance.
Please refer to our "Shipping Policies" page for more information on how to resolve these issues.
No. We cannot promise, or guarantee the service of any 3rd party, including and especially package servicing, and mail carrier companies.
That being said, the premium level delivery services (Next Day/Overnight), will generally carry a date-delivery guarantee*, meaning that if the carrier misses the delivery time that they have scheduled for your delivery, even by a single second, then you would be eligible to receive a refund on your shipping charges.
Information on which delivery services have a money-back service guarantee are readily available on each carrier's website.
*Please be aware that shipping and delivery services are not in any way connected to processing, or fulfillment times.
There have been some recent developments on this subject, covered in our 'News' section. Check back here late-Spring 2023, as we should have some updates on this topic!
Please be aware that if you reside in one of the more than 160 countries that participate in the VAT (Value Added Tax) system, VAT (or sometimes referred to as GST, or Goods and Services Tax) will be added by your country's customs agency before your order will be released to the carrier for final shipment.
It is strongly recommended for customers located outside of the U.S. to contact your local customs agency to inquire about the import process, and what taxes your order may be subject to at the time of import.
Please be aware that VAT is not covered in any of the product or shipping charges that are invoiced at the time your order was placed.
We use all major U.S. carriers, and local courier partners.
You’ll be asked to select a delivery method during checkout.
Products & Services
That depends on quantities, inventory on hand, number or volume of orders being processed at any given time, etc.
Orders are processed on a first come, first served basis. Rush processing services are not available.
Most products sold through our website are considered to be "in stock" as long as the product is available through our supplier network.
At the time your order is placed, we will call out for your products from our suppliers, who will then ship the product to our shop. This will typically takes 2-7 days depending on where the product actually originates from. Delays due to inclement weather are not uncommon during winter months.
Once the product arrives at our shop, the order is then scheduled for processing. Typical processing times can be expected to be 2-5 days.
Typical fulfillment times are estimates based on orders for single items. Orders containing multiple (more than 1) items, and/or orders that are placed during busy shopping seasons (like the Christmas shopping season) will take longer to fulfill.
All that being said, if you are ordering product that is being customized, we advise customers to generally expect, and plan for 1-2 weeks from the time their order has been placed, to the time they receive shipping notifications.
Fulfillment times for product that does not require personalization will be fulfilled much sooner than product that is being personalized.
Fulfillment times can also be extended, without prior notice.
Please also be aware that shipping services selected at the time of checkout do not impact, or affect processing times, only the delivery service once the order has been transferred to the carrier.
The short answer is no.
Due to how the entire personalization process works, from start to finish, there is no way that a fulfillment date can be promised, or guaranteed.
Typical fulfillment for personalized orders containing a single product is 4-12 business days.
If you are ordering blank product through our shop (like our popular laserable leatherette sheet stock), then the processing of those orders is much, simpler, involve far fewer steps, and turnaround times are much, much faster.
We advise all customers who are purchasing product that will require laser engraving/cutting, or any other personalization (like sublimation dye) to expect shipping notices to be sent approximately 1-2 weeks after their order has been placed.
Fulfillment times will be extended during busy holiday shopping seasons (such as Christmas), and late-shoppers will most likely receive their orders later than they would like.
You can always reach out by phone, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask for an estimate on our current lead times, we're more than happy to answer any questions you may have!
The short answer is yes, but these services are extremely limited in availability, and have a high barrier cost.
Priority servicing was something that was a standard optional service in the past, however, it proved to be highly disruptive to our workflow.
So, in order to keep things operating smoothly, we have implemented a very narrow carve-out with regard to (optional) Priority Servicing Option*:
- The full retail order value is a minimum of $2,500.00 USD (Full order value before any discounts are applied).
- The order will retroactively forfeit any discounting, or free shipping offers.
- Any discounts that were applied to the order will be invoiced to the customer to collect payment, to include shipping.
- Once those charges have been collected, the order will be placed in the Priority Service Queue.
*Priority Servicing Option is completely optional.
In short, yes, absolutely!
However, please be aware that for Customer Provided Goods (CPG) we do have minimum order requirements, and setup fees, that will vary depending on the process/machine that will be required to perform the job.
We are considered a Commercial Engraving Shop, and are not set up to facilitate small engraving jobs/requests in a cost-effective manner, compared with a Retail Engraving Shop (like a trophy shop).
Minimum CPG Engraving Charges (Setup/Programming/Tooling fees not included):
-CO2 Engraving: $120.00
-Fiber Laser Engraving: $165.00
Our pricing is based on run time, not the "number of characters" or "lines" involved in your project, so assuming you are looking to have multiple items engraved, you will find our pricing is VERY competitive.
Depending on what you are proposing to bring in for engraving, you may be asked to provide an SDS (MSDS) sheet for your product, or even sign a Waiver of Liability/Hold Harmless Agreement before any laser engraving work can be performed on and CPG.
If you are also able to provide us with a sacrificial sample, or a piece of scrap of the same type of material used in the item that you want to have engraved, that will go a long way in developing a set of parameters that we can use to engrave, or mark on the actual piece, without running the risk of damaging, or destroying the item.
We offer quantity-based discounting on all of our retail products, but if you are interested in case-based wholesale pricing, please visit our Wholesale/Marketplace website, at:
Orders that have been personalized in any way are ineligible for refund.
If your order did not include personalization, then it may be eligible for a full refund.
Simply email us directly and we will take you through the process.
As long as the cancellation request has been made before we have actually personalized the order, then the order can be cancelled for a full refund.
Products that are deemed to be "Special Order" products have additional terms and exclusions.
Please refer to our "Refund Policy" page for additional details.
Each product has a base charge for the product, whether you want to have the product customized, or not.
If you opt to have the product customized, you will be charged for the overall size of the design, for each surface that is available to be customized.
Basically, we give you full access to the customizable surfaces for each product, without putting up any barriers, or restrictions to customizing each product, the way you see fit!
Through the use of our integrated product customizer, we are able to offer customers the ability to set up their personalization prior to processing through checkout!
Customers have the option to use a large (and growing) library of designs to customize their order, or upload their own image files, without having to worry about setup fees!
There are no restrictions, or limitations with regard to image type, or image format, however, some formats are absolutely easier to use than others.
Image files in a vector format are the simplest format to use for customization.
If you are uploading a graphic file with an .ai file extension, be sure that the file has been saved as a ".pdf compatible image file", or it will not upload.
If a bitmap image is all you have, and graphic development services are not what you are looking for, then high resolution .png bitmap images with a transparent background are simpler than .pngs with a background, or .jpgs.
That is not to say that bitmaps with a background can't be used, there will just be a few additional steps through the customizer to set the graphic up to be compatible in a laser engraving application.
We do retain all production files, so generally speaking, placing a reorder (in most cases) will be as simple as logging into your account, and placing a reorder from your account.
If you want to receive a copy of your proof sheet from your previous order, simply request it via the Order Notes, or email after your order has been placed.
Due to recent website feature integrations, and upgrades, legacy customers who have not set up a customized order through the current product customizer will be required to set up an order through the customizer app.
This will create the necessary line items for customization charges that will be used as the basis for reordering.
We reserve the right to brand any and all items that are ordered through our retail website.
That doesn't mean that every item will receive a brand.
For example, if the product being ordered:
- does not contain any customization
- our shop is extremely busy, or
- we determine that applying a brand will be a detriment to the design
then a personalized item might not receive branding (solely at our discretion).
We do not accept, or honor any requests to withold branding on any retail products that are ordered from this website.
If having the product you order also having our branding is an issue, or conflict with the intended purpose of the item(s) you are considering purchasing (like if you are a reseller, or using the items to promote your own business, etc), then we recommend ordering wholesale products through our Marketplace website instead:
Products that are personalized through our Marketplace website can be customized, but they will not be branded.
No, absolutely not!
If you are ordering multiple items, and want a different name, or date on each piece, you can simply customize one item for the entire order to create the base template, and then inform us via the Order Notes, or via email after your purchase (don't forget to include your order number!) with the names/dates (and quantities if applicable).
Unfortunately, white colors and shades do not print in the sublimation dye print process.
This is why the majority (but not all) of the sublimatable products that we sell will have a white coating, which serves as the white background.
The products that do not have a white base color (stainless steel, glassware, burlap, etc), are not able to be printed with white-base color.
Any user-provided artwork files will not be able to be printed with any whites in the final product.
Because of this, the live preview/design proofs that you see and/or save from within the customizer may not be representative of the finished product, depending on which product is customized.
White colors are retained in our off-the-shelf sub dye artwork, so that customers can properly build up designs, using the provided design elements.
We encourage customers ordering sub dye products to reach out with any questions they may have about their artwork, and how it will appear in the finished product.
We do have a 'Chat with Us' module active on the website, but it is not staffed, or monitored.
It simply serves as a front end interface for customers to quickly get an answer to some of the more common, basic questions that we encounter.
If you need to get a hold of a live person, the best place to do so is via the Contact Us page, or by email at:
You may also be able to reach us by phone at:
+1 (360) 952-8196
That being said, if you are trying to get a hold of us by phone, we may not hear the phone ring, as it can be loud in the shop, so email/Contact Us pages work best!
