Important Information

Shipping Information

FREE shipping by ground transportation is included to one location anywhere in the 48 contiguous states when you order our “Best Seller” folders from pages 6-16 in our catalog. Customers from other locations will have freight added to their invoices. Next Day Air and Second Day Air are also available from your specified carrier for an additional charge. Air freight charges will be added to your invoice.

Please note on your order if you cannot receive truck shipments or need special considerations. We do not offer a “call when ready” service. If the shipping method changes while the order is in production, the change must be documented in either a fax or hard copy format. If the order has been shipped, no changes to the freight method can be made.

Charges for address changes due to an incorrect “Ship to ” address will be invoiced separately.

Claims against a carrier for cartons damaged in transit or carton shortages are the responsibility of the consignee. Folder Express® will provide documents and/or information to assist. Call for authorization to return any shipments. Claims are not processed past two months of the delivery date.

Proof Information

All proof changes, if applicable, include next-day air afternoon delivery cost. Quoted production time does not begin until the proof has been approved (and returned if color proof). If your proof is out for approval for over a month, your order will be automatically canceled and appropriate production and handling fees will be billed to you.

If you do not provide a high-resolution PDF with your order, we will supply a proof to you at the cost listed below.

Changes made at the proof stage will incur additional charges.

For proofs on custom new dies, please allow up to one week for proof production.
