ACKNOWLEGDGEMENT
All orders and changes are promptly acknowledged by email and fax. Please examine carefully and notify us promptly of any discrepancies or changes.

ARTWORK ORDERS
Emailed electronic art in vector format (Adobe Illustrator (.ai & .eps) is preferred. Please convert all text to outlines before sending. If at 300 dpi, .jpg, .bmp, .tif, .gif and .pdf files may be acceptable, however some processes may incur additional cost if vector artwork is not provided. Please e-mail artwork to artwork@bizpins.com and info@bizpins.com and fax a printed copy of artwork with purchase order. Please indicate actual PMS colors. Artwork can be created from your sketch or components at 50.00 (G) per hour.

ARTWORK - VIRTUAL SAMPLES - Win more orders!
Available at no charge for any semi-custom item (e.g. lanyards, wristbands, stock ornaments, caps and travel). A virtual rendering of any fully custom item (including pins, coins, medallions, charms, key tags, bookmarks and soft rubber), will be billed at 24.00 (G) per image. This fee will be waived if request for a fully-custom virtual sample is accompanied by a purchase order for the actual product in catalog minimum quantity or greater.

ARTWORK - COLORS
Enamel colors are slightly glossy after curing. Thus when choosing PMS colors, use the Solid Pantone Colors for "coated stock" or "C" colors. These achieve the best match. We cannot guarantee an accurate match when "uncoated stock" ("U") colors are used.

CANCELLATION CHARGES
Cancellation or change to an order in process will be charged according to costs incurred at the time of cancellation or change. For rush service, once the order has been acknowledged and artwork has been sent to the factory, we cannot accept any changes or cancellations.

CONDITIONS
All prices, terms of sale, and specifications are subject to change without prior notice. All orders are subject to approval by BizPins and are not binding until accepted. BizPins retains the right to refuse any order at any time.

CONSULTATION
Please call for a no-charge consultation regarding which process would be most appropriate for your pin, lanyard or other project. To ensure that we provide you with an accurate quote, please provide a copy of your artwork via e-mail to artwork@bizpins.com and info@bizpins.com.
