RETURN POLICY & GUARANTEE
Due to the customized nature of our service, where we print and deliver your content on our diploma and certificate forms, we cannot offer any refunds on orders that have shipped. All sales are final. Please research our products and services and carefully review the text you have input before placing your order with us. The Company lists its Terms and Conditions, its help guide, e-mail, to help you in placing an order with our company and answering any questions that you may have. We sell custom products made-to-order; therefore all sales are final. REFUNDS may be issued in the following circumstances: If the item is currently in production and has not been shipped, you may request a cancellation. Please note that a $100 cancellation fee may be applied to cover any cancellation fees and production time associated with your product and purchase. The difference will be deducted from your order’s total. If you overpaid for your order, we will refund the difference. We are not responsible for the performance of our shipping couriers (FedEx, UPS, DHL, USPS, etc.). We are not responsible – in any way – for late delivery. Once your package is picked up by our shipper, the shipping process is out of our control. If the shipper cannot locate your address or if you are unavailable to sign for your package, or if for any reason your package does not arrive within your requested timeframe, we cannot be held responsible. To get a refund in those instances, it may be possible for you to file a copy with our courier. If we make a mistake in properly applying the content you provide to your document, your remedy is limited to us correcting our mistake and reshipping the corrected document to you using your original shipping information. If you receive your order and recognize mistakes, you must e-mail us a description of the errors on your order within 90 days, in which case we will document your issue, and e-mail you back, confirming any changes that we need to apply. There is only ONE replacement of each document allowed per order. We allow you 30 days, upon delivery of documents, in which to notify us of a misprint or request for a reprint. We will dispose of all orders after 30 days to protect your personal information. After that time, no reprints can be promised, and you will need to place and pay for a new order. CANCELLATIONS ONLY APPLY Before Product is Shipped Unpaid Orders If your order is unpaid, your purchase is not complete, there is no payment to refund, and therefore your order can be cancelled. Orders Paid but Not Shipped If a paid order has not been shipped, your purchase can be refunded, minus our $100 cancellation fee to cover work that we’ve already put forth, together with cancellation fees instituted by our credit card processing account. Paid Orders (but it has shipped) If your order has been paid for and shipped, there are no refunds allowed under any circumstances. REPRINTS If a mistake is made by our staff, please contact us via e-mail or fax to report the error in detail along with your name, email, phone, and order number. All reprint requests submitted and confirmed by our production staff before noon (EST) of the same business day, will ship out that business day. All reprint requests submitted after noon (EST), will be processed the following business day. The Company allows only ONE reprint of each document! If you notice anything wrong, make sure to list EVERYTHING that is wrong the first time you submit your reprint request. If you request additional reprint requests for document(s) that we have previously reprinted, you may be asked to pay our standard reprint fees (look below). A reprint of your original order with all your necessary changes will be sent to you at no cost! Reprints are sent out using the same shipping method you opted for on the original order. Example: If you requested free ground shipping on your order, you will get ground shipping on your reprint order. In some rare circumstances, The Company may work out an upgrade in your shipping method for your reprint, but shipping upgrades are the final decision of The Company. Reprint fees may apply in these instances: * If the mistake is yours and not ours, such as a typo, spelling error, incorrect date of graduation, or other error in the information you supplied on the Site. This is why it is important to check over your order details. * If we sent you an email or fax copy of document(s) that we’ve made for you and you approved our work! Since you gave it the OK and authorized us to ship it, any changes may require a reprint fee. Reprint Fees are as follows: $150.00 to $300.00 plus standard shipping fees.
