Ordering from an Emblem & Badge® catalog, website or showroom constitutes acceptance of these terms.

Prices and specifications subject to change without notice. We are not responsible for typographical errors in this catalog.

TO ORDER To place orders, stop by, phone, mail, FAX or Email to us. Click here for our store addresses. In addition to the catalog items, many specials are available in our retail stores.

PRICING Our tremendous buying power yields low costs. Don't be fooled by competitors who claim to have the lowest prices or who offer hard-to-believe discounts from inflated list prices. Always compare your final costs including imprinting & other labor charges, product quality and company reputation. And don't forget to factor in the delivery time.

CUSTOM IMPRINTING Most awards and gifts we sell have an included or optional engraving plate. Characters are usually cut with a computer-controlled engraving needle or imprinted through the use of another, computer-controlled process. Please supply precise and clear instructions, especially as to spelling of names..

FREE IMPRINT applies only to items where FREE IMPRINT is stated. Unless otherwise stated on the page, our policy is to allow up to 50 characters free Diamond Drag Engraving per award, when you buy the product and before we ship it (or you pick it up). Additional characters engraved at the same time have a flat charge, indicated on each relevant page. Engraving done later will be charged at a higher rate. Similar policies apply to each of our different imrprinting processes.

SALES TAX Our prices do not include sales taxes. We collect sales taxes on an entire order, whether picked up in or shipped into RI, except for labor that is specifically itemized as such, which is not taxed in RI. A signed Exemption Certificate is required for all sales for which you claim tax exemption for any reason on orders which are picked up in or shipped into these states. You may download a copy of the special Multi-Jurisdictional Sales Tax Exemption Form (click here).

TELEPHONE ORDERS You may reach our facilities at the hours and numbers shown. After hours, you may record a message.

Follow up all telephone orders in writing to confirm your order. Long or complicated orders and orders with a lot of engraving should not be placed over the telephone. There is no substitute for accuracy! We are not responsible for errors which result from complex or unconfirmed telephone orders or duplicate orders not marked as "Confirmation".
