All orders approved and accepted under the minimum quantities posted on our websites will incur $60(G) minimum surcharge, no exceptions. The policy for below minimum orders is 50% of the first column listed (i.e. if the first column shows 100 you can order a minimum of 50 with the above surcharge).

We highly encourage requesting a sample before your order is placed to ensure you and your customer are happy with the quality and look of the product.

The service you are ordering must be clearly stated on your purchase order. Please note on 10+ Day service, some of these services are provided factory direct and can be impacted by national holidays in other countries. To ensure your order is delivered in time please call customer service to confirm prior to placement. As 3 Day is our standard service, it will automatically be applied to purchase orders which do not specify a production service regardless of requested shipping dates and/or pricing listed on the order.

Order Acknowledgement Confirmations:

After your order is processed you will receive an Order Acknowledgement from our team. The Order Acknowledgement acts as a binding agreement between you and Promoco Promotional Logistic Group. Please note that any changes to pricing, instructions, and details must be made at this time to avoid delays. When you approve an art layout the agreement clearly states that you have received your Order Acknowledgement, have read our Terms and Conditions and are approving the Art Layout. From that point you have confirmed everything is correct for production and claims or adjustments made after that will not be accepted.

Special Requests:

Any special requests, delivery labels or documents, special contact information etc. must be clearly stated on your Purchase Order. Please do not include important order instructions in the body of emails and/or in other correspondence as this information may be missed. Information and instructions not clearly stated on a Purchase Order will be considered non-essential and we will not be responsible for special requests or instructions that are not part of the official Purchase Order received.

Changes to Orders:

Changes to the PO must be made in writing and must be approved by the factory prior to the changes becoming effective. Submitting a request without any confirmation by the factory will not be considered a valid change and customer will be billed for the original order. Customer is responsible for any and all incurred costs prior to change approval. If customer does not receive a confirmation of the change it may not have been received or approved. Changes made to orders after proof approval will have their production timelines reset, as any change made at this stage requires the order to be pulled from production. The only exception to this is changes in a delivery address. We highly recommend checking all details connected to your Purchase Order prior to placing it.

Order Cancellations:

Cancellation requests must be in writing. Some orders may not be cancellable, dependent on whether production or shipping has commenced. The customer is responsible for any incurred costs such as set ups, printing, proofs, artwork, packaging and any other expenses incurred by the factory. There will be a charge of 20% of the item cost with a $60(G) minimum restocking charge for blank items plus all applicable return freight costs.

Rush Orders:

Refer to our production times for our range of rush services. From time to time, the factory may need to switch carriers in order to ship on time. Production time starts after all approvals have been received by factory, including credit, print ready art, paper proofs and pre-production proofs. Rush orders have firm requirements and guidelines that are as follows. Please note that, failing to follow these requirements may result in delays with your order. Please make sure before ordering that the product has the 24 HOUR RUSH Logo showing on the website because all the products are not available on this service. Do check stock to ensure the inventory is available for your order or not. Min/Max quantities for rush ordering are shown on the item’s page under Rush Pricing, and these are the only quantities that can be delivered under this service. Rush production is limited to 1 colour and position imprinting (unless otherwise noted). Order and artwork must arrive by 10 am the day prior (all order details must be complete and artwork must be in a useable vector format). Art layout must be approved by 1 pm the day prior to the anticipated dispatch date. Completed orders will ship the next business day, by end of day, and can’t be shipped via third party freight. Please contact us for requests outside of the guidelines for preapproval before submitting an order. Prepaid accounts must also include payment at time of order.

Repeat Orders:

Repeat set up charges are $45(G)/colour/location (unless otherwise listed) for all in stock orders with identical art to the previous order. Overseas orders may have higher repeat set up charges, please check with your customer service representative prior to placing an order. Repeat set up charges are free from any other supplier. Simply show that an order has been produced previously with another supplier and we will renounce the set-up charges for that order. Please note that for exact matching of a previous order customers are encouraged to send in a sample for matching (as printing/material shades can alter from order to order). Artwork will be kept on file for 24 months. Orders after 24 months will be treated as a new order. All repeat orders require proof approval, and are re-setup electronically when placed. It is important to proof these orders carefully to ensure the layout is correct.

Unbranded Orders:

Unbranded orders require approval of an Order Acknowledgement before dispatch. You will receive this after your order is placed and must electronically sign it before you order can be picked from inventory. While most unbranded orders are dispatched within 24 hours, failure to approve the Order Acknowledgement and/or issue prepayment (as applicable) will result in delays.

Inventory Availability:

Inventory stock is on a first come first serve basis. Prior to submitting a PO, always call to check available inventory or visit our website for Inventory numbers. Inventory cannot be placed on hold for more than 48 hours without a confirmed purchase order and artwork.

Holds:

You may request a hold be placed on inventory for 24-48 hours. All hold requests must be submitted in writing to our customer service team. Please note after 48 hours the hold will be canceled without notice.

Promotions:

From time to time Promoco Promotional Logistic Group will run sales promotions on certain items. Every promotion has a corresponding promotional code that must be reference on your Purchase Order. Promotional discounts cannot be retroactively applied to orders in production and orders that have been invoiced. Please make sure to include the promotional code when ordering and if you are unsure of our current promotions please contact customer service before placing your order.

Prices:

Due to currency and material fluctuations, prices are subject to change without notice. We are not responsible for incorrect pricing, production times and, or descriptions found on 3rd party databases, websites, flyers or catalogues. Prices on our website supersede all pricing, published or otherwise posted. The factory’s current catalogue supersedes all other publications.

Sales Tax:

In accordance with Australian Goods & Services Tax laws goods shipped in Australia will be charged GST. Please contact our Accounts department prior to ordering for instructions on how you may qualify for an exemption from the tax.

Artwork Charges:

An additional fee of $80(G) per hour will be applied for artwork changes such as recreation, clean up and redraw. The first 2 art layouts (proofs) are free of charge and then $25.00(G) per revision thereafter. The only exception is when our art department has missed an instruction provided on your Purchase Order.

Artwork Sign Off/Proof Approval:

We make every possible attempt to draft artwork as instructed, but human error and technical errors can occur. So it is the customer’s sole responsibility to review the final artwork layout and approve it for production. The factory will not be held responsible for errors in artwork layouts that have been reviewed and approved by the customer.

Docu-Sign and Our Three Points of Approval:

Prior to production, a final approval request is sent through our Docu-Sign Signature system. By signing through Docu-Sign you are acknowledging the following three points of approval. First, that you have received your Acknowledged Order confirmation and agree with the pricing, details, delivery and anticipated dispatch date. Second, you have read our Terms and Conditions and agree to accept them. Third, that you are approving the final art layout attached to the Docu-Sign, and confirm your understanding that all production times begin after approval. You will receive a production notification after final approvals are received with a revised anticipated dispatch date (as applicable).

Production Notifications:

Once your Order Acknowledgement and Art Layout have been approved you will receive a Production Notification with an anticipated dispatch date shown. While we strive to ship every order on the anticipated dispatch date, the date is only an approximate shipping date based on the service level you are ordering with. If you have a critical delivery date (In Hands) it must be clearly stated on the purchase order so that this information can be correctly conveyed to our production team.

Dispatch Notifications:

Dispatch notifications are sent every evening after hours. Notifications go out for all orders dispatched on the same day and include an image of the decorated item, address confirmation, and tracking details. On occasion, an image will be missed or a dispatch notification may fail to send, and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience caused due to this error. If you do not receive a dispatch notification, please contact customer service for tracking details.

Shipping:

The customer is responsible for all shipping charges FOB Sydney, Australia, as applicable. Shipping instructions, shipping method, delivery address and requested dispatch date must be included on the PO. Please note our processing team schedules orders off the service level requested and/or a requested dispatch date. It is the customers’ responsibility to check the anticipated transit times with couriers before placing an order. All delivery times provided by couriers are estimates unless an express service is requested and paid for. Changes to shipping instructions must be in writing, approved by the factory and submitted at least 24 hours prior to ship date as factory may ship early. We will not be responsible for delays or additional charges for any unapproved changes. The factory may ship orders out prior to customer’s requested ship date without notification to the customer. Orders are not insured unless requested on the PO or in writing (please note this request will incur any applicable courier insurance costs associated). All orders become the customer’s property upon factory’s delivery to the carrier as shipments are FOB Sydney. Customers should file claims with the carrier for any delayed, lost or damaged shipments. The factory will be happy to assist with this process, but the customer must initiate this process within 14 days of shipment. If requested our customer service team will open an investigation ticket with the shipping carrier, and provide your contact details for notifications and follow up. It is the customer’s responsibility after the initial investigation has been opened to follow up with the carrier for additional updates and information. Delays caused by a carrier are not the responsibility of the factory and no refunds, credits or returns will be given to customer due to carrier issues.
