Please bear in mind, we cannot accept any responsibility for any orders for any products or services you place which do not fit your needs. Since the vast majority of the signs and banners we ship are custom made to order for a specific purpose unique to the needs of that individual, business or organization, we obviously cannot place that custom sign or service back in our inventory to re-sell to another customer.

Therefore, we have no choice but to declare that all sales are final. There are absolutely no refunds for any orders. Customer hereby waives all rights to reverse charges or charge back credit card for any and all orders.

CANCELLATION POLICY
If any order is canceled before the sign production has started, there will be a cancellation charge up to $50 for handling applied as a store credit. Time allocated for proofs and artwork generated by our graphic designer will be charged at our standard hourly rate and is non-refundable. An order cannot be canceled if sign production has started. However, at your written request, we can prevent shipment. You will be charged for the full amount of the order minus shipping.

SHIPPING POLICY
If your order is time sensitive ask your service representative for assistance. All items purchased from TheSignChef.com are delivered pursuant to a shipment contract with the carrier of our choosing. The risk of loss and title for such items will pass to you upon our delivery of your order to the carrier. All packages are automatically insured up to $100.00.

Any shipping damage should be reported at the time of delivery to us and the shipping company. If special packaging is ever required for proper shipping, you will be charged accordingly.

RETURN POLICY
Due to the custom nature of the signs offered and the fact that we cannot put custom signs produced in our shop back into inventory to resell to another customer, it is understood that we are unable to offer any refunds or credits for any products. You agree that all sales are final. It is entirely your responsibility as the client, to determine the applicability and/or fitness of any purchases made. SignMagic ONLINE SIGN DESIGN SOFTWARE The user of our “SignMagic” Software agrees in using our software, that the design & final product designed serves as the final proof and layout for the user, unless indicated otherwise in the checkout process under “Special Instructions”. What you see is what you will get!

COLORS
The user of SignMagic agrees that the colors specified in our software used for designing the signs are for illustration purposes only and will vary in the appearance and shades of the colors and are clearly not the actual final colors for the sign products. If the shade of a particular color is critically important, we can ship you a color chart so you can see the actual final color that will be used in the sign. For special orders, we can come very close to matching hundreds of Pantone Matching System (PMS) colors. Please call Customer Service toll free at 1-800-899-6272 for assistance. The user also agrees and accepts that designing and purchasing any product using any of our online color charts related with our services on TheSignChef.com, will look somewhat different than the actual final product since the colors specified in our software will vary in the appearance and shades of the color due to the differences in both how colors are displayed on different monitors and the differences in materials (Vinyl, Paint, Wood, Aluminum, etc.) used. In a case where the customer orders and receives a sign and the color is totally different from what they ordered (example: red instead of blue, not just a shade of blue that is different from what was expected), the customer may, of course, request a corrected sign. Upon your written request, TheSignChef.com will use reasonable efforts to change or cancel your order prior to production. If any order is changed prior to production, change charges including, but not limited to, artwork change charges, quantity change charges and shipping change charges may apply. If any order is canceled before the artwork and/or sign production has started, there will be a $50 cancellation charge plus any related artwork and proofing charges at the rate of $60 per hour. An order cannot be canceled if sign production has started. However, at your written request, we can prevent shipment. You will be charged for the full amount of the order minus shipping.
