Ordering from our website

Confirmation of Order

When you submit an order, you are in effect making an offer to purchase the sign you have designed for the price specified on the site's checkout page. Please ensure that you supply correct name, email address, and credit card information. Once we have accepted your order, we will email you order confirmation and an invoice for your records, along with a final proof for approval (see below, "Design Approval"). We reserve the right not to accept your order for any reason.

Pricing

Prices displayed on the sign-designer tool are accurate in $USD and include shipping. Prices displayed by photos of existing signs are indicative only. They assume a one-sided sign. They include fabrication of the main sign panel - not subsigns, posts or scroll hangers. Prices will change if revisions alter size or number of sides. Customized work based on photos will require custom quotes. Click the 'send me a quote' button. We reserve the right to change our prices at any time, with no prior notification.

Price quotations for specialty orders requiring custom design work are valid for thirty (30) days if during that period no change to specifications occurs. Quotations do not include anything that is not specified in writing.

Deadlines for special discount offers are determined on a case-by-case basis.

Design Approval

When you submit an order, you approve the sign design you have created. If you selected this option, we will email you a drawing of your sign design ("final proof"), displaying the design specifications you submitted. We will begin fabrication of your sign once you have approved in writing the final proof. If you request alterations to the design after we send you the final proof, we may be able to accommodate modifications, but only if sign fabrication has not commenced; and additional charges may apply.

Delivery Time

Our standard delivery time is three weeks from order confirmation, and we will do our best to meet tight deadlines. However, we accept no liability or penalty for any failure to meet delivery times or for in-transit delays of any cause.

Shipping Costs

Shipping to the US is free. There are no additional costs beyond the price displayed on the website. Shipping is also free for UK and Canada, however, customers from countries other than the USA are responsible for local duty and taxes.

Cancellation of Orders

We will not begin fabrication of your sign until we receive from you written approval of the final proof. If after confirming your order you decide to cancel all or part of your order, you agree to pay in full for any part of that order already fabricated or in the process of being fabricated.

Claims or Damage

We are responsible for the safety of your sign until it is delivered to you. Claims for manufacturer's defects, damage in transit, or shortages must be made by you in writing no later than ten calendar days after delivery. If no such claim is made, you acknowledge that our performance has fully satisfied all terms, conditions, and specifications.

Returns Policy

Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction. In the unlikely event that, on receipt of your sign, you are not completely satisfied with it, you may at your expense return it to us and we will reimburse you the amount you paid for the sign.

Color Matching

As computer color calibration settings may vary, you should expect a slight color variation between the design as displayed on your computer screen and the completed sign.

Sign Pictorials

The sign you have designed includes original, hand-painted artwork. The artwork displayed on your computer screen during the design process, and the artwork displayed in the final proof, will not match the final artwork exactly. The final artwork is assumed to be an improvement over the representational artwork you approved.

We reserve the right to be the sole fabricator of any sign we have designed and to display replicas or images of signs our work for promotional purposes.

In cases where as part of the sign design process you supply a logo, artwork, or other material to us, your supply warrants that the material is not copyrighted by a third party or that you have been granted permission to use the copyrighted material on your sign. To support these warranties, you agree to indemnify us in any legal action connected with copyright infringement involving the work produced.
