It is important to note that custom PMS colours apply to ink printed onto white paper and may vary in appearance up to 1 to 2 shades depending on the type/colour/texture of the material they are printed on.

Minimum Order Value Requirements and Below Minimum Orders:
All orders approved and accepted under the minimum quantities posted on our websites will incur $48 net, minimum surcharge, no exceptions. The policy for below minimum orders is 50% of the first column listed. (ie: First column shows 100 you can order as few as 50 with the above surcharge, etc). Some items cannot be ordered below our posted minimums so please make sure to confirm your order with our customer service team prior to submission.

Sample requests valued up to $15.00 net, are provided free of charge and free of freight. Sample requests are sent out with random logos (unless branded stock is unavailable) and are limited to reasonable quantities as determined by CS. 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.

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 Promo Brands. 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 an approval may not be accepted.
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 the factory 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.
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 net, minimum restocking charge for blank items plus all applicable return freight costs.
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 failing to adhere to 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, as not all products are available on this service. Check stock to ensure the inventory is available for your order. 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 rushed. Rush production is limited to 1 colour/position imprinting (unless otherwise noted). Order and artwork must arrive by 8am the day prior (all order details must be complete and artwork must be in a usable vector format). Art layout must be approved by 11am the day prior to the anticipated despatch date. Completed orders will ship the next business day, by end of day, and cannot 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 set up charges are $30 per colour, per 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, 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 waive 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 require approval of an Order Acknowledgement prior to despatch. 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 despatch within 24 hours failure to approve the Order Acknowledgement and/or issue prepayment (as applicable) will result in delays.
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.
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 released without notice.
From time to time Promo Brands 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/or 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.
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 (i.e. APPA, PromoDirect, Xebra, ect) Prices on the website supersede all pricing, published or otherwise posted. The factory’s current catalogue supersedes all previous publications.
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.
An additional fee of $80(G) per hour will be applied for artwork changes, such as recreations, clean ups and redraws. 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.
PMS Matching with Digital Transfers:
To ensure precise replication of Pantone Matching System (PMS) colours through digital transfers, we have a set-up fee of $40 per colour. This fee covers the meticulous calibration and configuration required to accurately match your desired PMS colours in the digital realm.
While CMYK colours provided will come close, if you require an exact match of the PMS colour there will be a fee which covers the necessary resources, expertise, and time invested in ensuring accurate colour reproduction through digital transfers.
By proceeding with the colour-matching service, you acknowledge and agree to the terms and conditions outlined herein.
Artwork Sign Off/Proof Approval:
Factory makes every attempt possible to layout artwork as instructed, but human error and technical errors are inevitable. 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 (signed off) 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. One, that you have received your Acknowledged Order confirmation and agree with the pricing, details, delivery and anticipated despatch date. Two, that you have read our Terms and Conditions and agree to abide by 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 despatch date (as applicable).
Once your Order Acknowledgement and Art Layout have been approved you will receive a Production Notification with an anticipated despatch date shown. While we strive to ship every order on it’s anticipated despatch date the date is only an approximate ship 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.
Despatch notifications are sent every evening after hours. Notifications go out for all orders despatched 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 despatch notification may fail to send, and we apologise in advance for any inconvenience this may cause. If you do not receive a despatch notification please contact customer service for tracking details.
The customer is responsible for all shipping charges FOB Melbourne, Australia, as applicable. Shipping instructions, shipping method, delivery address and requested despatch date must be included on the PO. Please note our processing team schedules orders off the service level requested and/or a requested despatch date. It is the customers’ responsibility to check 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 factory and submitted at least 24 hours prior to ship date as factory may ship early. Factory will not be responsible for delays or additional charges for any unapproved changes. Factory may ship orders out prior to customer’s requested ship date without notification to 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).

The factory will be happy to assist with this process, but the customer must initiate this process within 14 days of shipment.

It is the customer’s responsibility after the initial investigation has been opened to follow up with the carrier for additional updates and information.
