Pins Fast believes that customer satisfaction is the foundation of a successful business. We back each and every custom lapel pin with our manufacturer’s guarantee. 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:
Pins Fast backs each and every product we manufacture with our manufacturer’s 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.
Manufacturing Pins Fast:
Pins Fast sells an imitation jewelry product capable of rapid production in the United States. In order to meet your deadline, we make pins from acrylic plastic. We do not make traditional enamel pins, cloisonné or die-struck pins but we offer imitations of those styles. You understand and agree that Pins Fast pins are made from acrylic plastic.
You understand and agree that Pins Fast custom pins may give off a chemical odor which dissipates shortly after un-packaging.
Due to the expedited nature of our manufacturing process, some non-toxic acrylic residue may be present on the edges of our pins. The non-toxic residue from the manufacturing process may be removed with a melamine foam, also known as a “Magical Eraser”. You understand and agree to cooperate with us in this expedited manufacturing by removing any unsightly residue from the manufacturing process. We must all work together.
We print your approved image onto your custom pins at high resolution, but small text with a height of less than 2 millimeters may be difficult to read. YOU UNDERSTAND AND AGREE THAT MINIATURE TEXT MAY BE DIFFICULT TO READ.
For rush orders, we include poly bags separately at no additional cost, but we cannot bag each individual pin.
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.
If you are concerned about the exact color of your CMYK printed pins, please specify your intended Pantone (PMS) colors before production begins. CMYK colors cannot exactly match Pantone (PMS) colors and so we must use a CMYK equivalent of Pantone colors. If asked, we can simulate Pantone (PMS) colors with a CMYK equivalent color. In order to specify the use of CMYK equivalent of Pantone colors, we will notate the CMYK equivalent of Pantone (PMS) colors on your proof. Because this color reproduction process can take additional time, please allow an additional 24 hours for CMYK equivalent Pantone (PMS) color simulation.
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.
