Pins Fast Terms & Conditions

We at Pins Fast believe that customer satisfaction is the foundation of a successful business. We back each and every custom lapel pin with the guarantee that it will be made without defects. If you ever feel that your pins are defective, we want to hear from you. We are dedicated to customer satisfaction and we will replace any defective pins at no cost to you.

Each order is created through a team effort. You are a very important part of our team. We rely on you for vital information in order to produce the pins you want. While we are working together, we each have responsibilities. For your convenience, we have included these responsibilities below. Please take a moment to read them. These are the terms and conditions that govern all of our sales. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

Pins Fast is responsible for:

Standing Behind Our Products 100%

Pins Fast backs each and every product we manufacture with our Quality Guarantee. We will replace (at no additional charge to you) any defective custom product. We only require that you email us an image of the defective product(s) within 30 days of receipt. For purposes of this Agreement, the term “defect” or “defective” means a manufacturing error.

Giving You Accurate Information

Prior to starting production, you will receive via e-mail a digital proof of your final custom-made product. This high-quality digital proof will allow you to spell check, verify Pantone colors, size and make any additional changes or corrections prior to starting production. The “size” of your lapel pin is determined by measuring the widest or tallest point of your design.

We use the Pantone (PMS) color matching system, and it is important that you indicate your color choices using Pantone PMS numbers. For additional information regarding the Pantone (PMS) color matching system, visit the Pantone site at www.pantone.com. In addition, because all computer monitors/ printers do not display colors in the same way, you should confirm your color choice by consulting a Pantone (PMS) color book/chart, which are available at most art supply stores and some libraries. All Pantone (PMS) numbers will be listed on the proof so that you can verify them easily.

Confirming Your Order

Prior to production, you will receive an order confirmation letter via email. This order confirmation will contain (1) written specifications of your order (including pricing, type, size(widest point), quantity, colors, and the estimated production time), (2) a finalized digital proof (incorporating any additional changes or corrections), and (3) a link to our terms and conditions page. If the written specifications/finalized digital proof meet your satisfaction, just send us your approval via reply e-mail, and we will commence the production process immediately. Orders placed directly through our online ordering system allow a complete review of your ordering details, along with our Terms and Conditions. Therefore, online orders do not require a Confirmation Letter email.

Producing Your Order Correctly & On Time

Once we have obtained your approval on the order confirmation described above, we will manufacture your order within the following time frames:

  • Rush Pins 24 Hours

In addition, there will be a shipping charge if the product is to be shipped to a location outside of the United States. For some customers in remote locations, there may be additional brokerage fees which are due upon receipt.
