*Orders for prints without additional services and received before 2pm Central Time will be ready for shipping or pick up by 4pm the following business day. Orders received after 2pm move to the following business day’s productions schedule
We charge a minimum of $5.00 for all pick up orders, and $12.00 per order when your order is being shipped. Any order that is received outside of the ROES software will be subject to additional processing charges including shipping and longer turnaround times.
Two separate orders cannot be combined to prevent a minimum order charge.
$5.00 Priority Service
For orders that you would like to be completed and shipped same day, we offer our priority service. Although this is not a 100% Guaranteed Rush, we will do everything possible to prioritize your order in our daily production. To qualify for Priority Service, your order must be received by 1:00pm Central Time and be printed on Lustre paper. No color correction, mounting, coating, texturizing or any other special service may be ordered. This additional service costs $5.00 per order and cannot be combined with any other order and does not apply to promotions or specials. Please remember, there is no guarantee with this service. If we do not finish your order by the end of the day, your priority fee will be refunded and the order will be pushed back into the next day’s production schedule. Priority Service needs to be selected before the order arrives, we do not allow upgardes to an order already in progress. This service is also available on drop shipped orders.
100% Guaranteed Rush
For orders that you need now, we offer a Guaranteed Rush service. This service is billed at 50% additional of the total price of the order, with a $10 fee minimum. Guaranteed Rush orders must be received by 2:00pm Central Time with “Guaranteed Rush Service” selected when submitted. These orders will receive top priority in our production schedule. They move to the top of the line, above Priority Service orders, and we do everything possible to get your order out that same day. These orders cannot be combined with any other order. Guaranteed Rush is not available for promotions, specials or Gemstone Albums. Shipping fees are additional.
Please ensure the order is correct before submission. All rush orders are final and cannot be changed or canceled once received with Priority or Guaranteed Rush applied.
All other rush order requests will be quoted on an as needed basis.
With our automated system, orders are processed upon receipt. Please review your order thoroughly in the cart of the ordering software before you begin the upload process. If you realize an error has occurred during the upload process, please stop the upload and correct your order. If an error occurs after your upload has completed, please call the lab immediately so that we can attempt to cancel the order before any print cost has accrued. If you would like to cancel an order after business hours, please respond to the order confirmation email with your request.
If you find that an order was processed incorrectly, contact us immediately so we may begin the remake procedure. Please have the original order number (e.g. DL-123456) ready when you call. DO NOT SUBMIT A NEW ORDER. We will only reprint from the file(s) submitted with the original order, using the same specifications (including shipping method). If you wish to modify the order, you must submit it as a new job and pay full price.
Upon receiving the finished order, you have ten days to make a claim. After ten days, the order will not be redone and must be resubmitted as a new job. Upon receipt of an order, please thoroughly inspect the package. If there appears to be any critical damage, immediately examine the contents and contact us to begin the replacement process. Do not throw the print(s) or packaging away. In some circumstances, we may ask that the damaged package be returned.
Although it is uncommon, in certain situations we may ask you to return the product for further examination. The damaged order will be put back into production and given top priority in the production schedule. The replacement order will be shipped to you, using the order’s original shipping method.
Do not submit a new order. As with all remakes, we will only print from the file(s) submitted with the original specifications.
You have 3 days after receipt of the package to make a claim of shipping damage. After 3 days we will not accept any claim for any reason.
Normal operating hours are 8:00AM to 5:00PM, Monday through Friday.
