- Artwork: Good art files are necessary to reproduce your logos and imprints. Outline (vector) art files are preferred but high quality .pdf files are usually acceptable. Reflective (hard copy) art will be converted to digital files and may result in extra charges. Art files may be sent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Ask for our instruction sheet to ensure an accurate and successful upload. If art is to be created by the K&B Art Department, normal charges are $10 to $30 per one color art or $20 to $40 per two color art net. Complex art will be quoted.
- Tooling (cuts, screens, dies) and Set-up Charges: Depending upon the production method, item selected and the price structure, set-up and/or tooling charges may apply. Consult the specific Best Buys advertised item for these charges. Reorders placed beyond 24 months from the most recent identical order may require new charges for tooling and/or set-up. Reorder set-up may apply to all reorders.
- Product Colors: Color samples shown are to be used as a guide only. Due to variances in the photographic and the printing processes involved in the production of our catalog, slight differences in the product color may occur. If a product is to be used for a particular “color” coordinated promotion and product color is a significant part of the promotion, we ask that you order a random sample or a product proof prior to production.
- Imprint Colors: Standard imprint colors vary from item to item and manufacturer to manufacturer. If a specific PMS color match is required, contact a K&B Dealer Service Representative for pricing for the specific product as each manufacturer will have their own pricing policy.
- Future Deliveries: Generally, manufacturers and K&B can accommodate orders calling for delivery at some future date. However, at these deeply discounted prices all orders must be completed no later than December 31, 2021 for immediate shipment. Shipments cannot be scheduled after December 31, 2021 at these prices unless approved by the factory.
- Multi-colors or Multi-location printing: Unless specifically quoted on the product page in our catalog, all pricing includes single color only printing in a single location. For items not listing multi-color or multi-location printing as an option, contact a K&B Dealer Service Representative for pricing or availability.
- Pricing Expiration: All prices in this catalog expire at midnight December 31, 2021. Orders signed and dated prior to 12/31 and received by K&B by January 10, 2022 will be accepted.
- Production Time: All production times listed are “approximate” and cannot be guaranteed due to variations depending on seasonal changes. Time quoted are actual “working days” (Monday through Friday, excluding holidays). Please allow additional time for orders to reach K&B, plus 1-2 days for K&B processing, time for orders to reach the factory and 3-5 for delivery by ground shipping. For “Special Event Dated” orders, refer to item # 11.
- Proofs: Paper Proofs of the proposed imprint copy can be provided upon request. Many proof charges are listed in this catalog. A factory may have a proof charge even if it is not listed in this catalog, check with your K&B Dealer Service Rep. Product proofs (pre-production samples) may also be available on certain items, consult your K&B Dealer Service Rep. for costs.
- Samples: Random imprinted samples are available on any product shown in the Best Buys Catalog at 50% of the smallest quantity list price shown. Sample purchases must be prepaid, Major Credit Cards accepted. All samples shipped prepaid by ground. If expedited service is needed, appropriate charges will apply.
- Special “Event” Dated Orders: Do not “assume” that a specific date can be met if the item ordered is for a special event and would be worthless if delivered after the date. Each case must be specially authorized by a K&B Dealer Service Representative. Once authorization has been pre-approved, be certain to expedite your order by online order, email or overnight delivery to K&B and put the required “in hands delivery by or notify date” in the appropriate box on the K&B order form. Also be sure to list the name of the K&B Dealer Service Representative that received the pre-approval from the factory.
- Substitutions: At times, K&B and our manufacturers find it necessary to make substitutions. We reserve the right to provide like product of equal or greater value without notice. Note: It is especially prevalent on caps – we do not advertise or guarantee a specific brand. This may vary from order to order depending upon availability. On wearables it is not uncommon to find variations between “dyed lots” and colors may also vary from order to order.
- Under-runs or Over-runs: Due to the very nature of automated high-speed production equipment and methods, it is not possible to guarantee exact quantities. It is industry standard practice to allow for an under or over run of 5% on certain items. Some items even run much more in higher quantities. Invoices will reflect the actual quantity shipped.
Prices and shipping subject to change due to world market prices of raw material and energy. Current prices are listed on our website www.kbbestbuys.com. Price changes that go into effect after a factory ready order is received by K&B will not apply to your order. Orders (except calendars) requiring future shipping dates that are 60 days or longer are subject to price adjustments unless paid in full at the time order is placed. Shipping weights and carton dimensions are approximate. For large quantities, heavy items or bulky items, we suggest obtaining a shipping quote from the factory.
