BCI Corporation uses US Priority Mail, DHL, FEDEX or UPS Ground shipping for all product shipments. All shipments require signature authorization unless expressly waived by customer in written email format. All shipping charges are the customer's responsibility for payment; these charges are added to the customer's invoice at time of shipping ex-works our factory. If customers elect to use their own accounts with respective shipping couriers they become by default the "shipping agent" and any claims due to lost or damaged goods become the account holders responsibility. If client wishes BCI to ship "freight collect" on the client's courier account, it is the client's responsibility to state if the do or do not want the goods to be insured. BCI will not insure goods unless specifically asked by said customer/client to insure goods being shipped. BCI takes no responsibility for lost or damaged goods upon pick up/shipment scan by shipping agent or carrier. International orders which require customs clearance and/or duty fees are also the sole responsibility of customer in receiving country. Tracking numbers are available with BCI shipping department.
All sales are final on personalized goods. BCI charges a non-refundable $50.00 set up fee which covers the first initial production proof of the label or hangtag; $280.00 for injection molded labels; and $150.00 for etching or laser template engraving labels. Molds and laser templates are not released to said customers and remain property of BCI Corporation. The client upon entering into agreement with BCI to create label proofs, molds or laser templates hereby agrees to this policy upon providing payment for said proofs, molds or templates. Samples of customized labels are emailed as digital scan or as a physical sample by mail depending upon client request. Once the proof is accepted and approved by the client via email, fax or voice by phone call, the production is begun in ernest and all sales at that point are final. Set up charges on any labels are fixed and 1 time only unless the artwork is changed upon reordering. The set up charges are non-refundable and are based upon matching the given artwork as closely as possible given limitations of the weaving looms, injection molding tooling and or laser limitations. Limitations include size industry standard tolerances of between 1/16" to 1/4" in size variation, true cutting of ribbon based upon machinery cutting of ribbon (true 90 degree can vary by 10%) and colorfastness of yarns within tolerances of 15%. These industry standard tolerances are approved by the customer upon placing the order. The method of weaving labels involves moving parts and moving loom machinery and therefore variances in size, cutting and color fastness can have variability. While we try our best to avoid any tolerance, these tolerances above are industry standard for all woven or printed, injected label production at BCI.
All sample kit orders made on line are non refundable once the kits have been opened by the customer. The kits will contain a minimum one label of each label listed on the description page of the respective label sample kit. If you order more than one style/type of kit, some duplication of labels sampling may occur. It is the customer’s responsibility to read the description of what is included in the kits to avoid unnecessary duplication of samples. Other labels may or may not be added to give a further assortment of label options depending on current production. If a specific label is missing that you wish to see and review we will make every attempt to send it to you however if it is currently in production, we have to wait until production is completed and then send it to you as an addition to the kit free of charge upon completion; this may take up to 2 weeks.
