Production Specs

Standard Production Time: Lead times and rush charges are based upon the receipt of final art approval and complete order instructions – not when an order is submitted. Art that is not output-ready usually requires additional lead time. Always allow time to acquire art and proof approval. Production begins the business day following receipt of PO and approved, output-ready art. Art that is not output-ready requires additional lead time. Production lead times are based on orders up to 5,000 pieces. For larger quantities, call for production times.

Cancelled Orders: If an order is cancelled, you are responsible for charges incurred up to the point of cancellation.

Returns: Authorization is required prior to return of product. Unauthorized returns will not be accepted. No credit will be issued for product that cannot be returned.

Multiple Destination Charge: CounterPoint® will ship to separate locations for $12.50/v per location. If specific instructions are received within three days of shipping, a $18.75/v charge per destination will be applied. Not-standard case-packs will incur additional charges.

Custom Dies: Die/handling charge is usually $250/v, but may be more depending on the size and complexity of the pattern. All dies created by us remain factory property.

To include a supplied insert or label, please add $.125/v. CounterPoint® will quote most types of standard packaging including shrink wrap and custom retail packaging. Packaging will increase required lead time. Projects requiring non-standard case packs will incur additional charges.

Shipping: F.O.B. Nevada. In accordance with the shipping terms of F.O.B., the responsibility of an order transfers to the customer when the order is shipped. Claims for shipping damage MUST be made by the customer when the shipment arrives. CounterPoint® accepts no responsibility or liability for carrier-caused delivery delays, problems, or product damages.

Box Weights: Box weights may vary depending on the actual raw materials used. Some variation is normal and expected.

Important Note: Lead times and rush charges are based upon the receipt of final art approval and complete order instructions – not when an order is submitted. Art that is not output-ready usually requires additional lead time. Always allow time to acquire art and proof approval. Packaging or custom die requirements may also increase lead time.
