At Apple Awards Inc. we understand how important it is that your items arrive on time. We are extremely committed to your awards being delivered by the requested delivery date. Delays caused by shipping companies and failure to respond to a proof are exceptions.
Our online ordering system requires you to indicate your “need by date” during the check out procedure. Our products are unique and many factors contribute to the formula that calculates the time and cost of getting the order to you on or before your required due date: size of order, personalization needs, shipping distance from our location to yours. If you need your awards faster than our standard production time, we offer a rush production service which is calculated based on the due date indicated.
Typically, orders allowing 10 working days, plus shipping, will not incur extra charges. Please adjust the due date as needed to fit the additional charges that may be applied into your budget.
A staff member will contact you by phone or email on the first business day after receiving your order if there are questions concerning your due date or fulfilling your order by the required due date.
If you have questions or concerns please contact a Customer Service agent waiting to receive your call Monday-Thursday 8:00a.m.-5:00p.m. & Friday 8:00a.m.-4:00p.m. CST at 1-800-248-6243 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Apple Awards does not accept phone orders. The reason for this is accuracy; our customers depend too much on us to be accurate with the options and personalization of their products to risk a mistake in translation. The preferred method of ordering is through our online ordering system on our website at www.appleawards.com. We will also accept e-mail orders sent to email@example.com or faxed orders to 715-634-3334. We do accept purchase orders and most major credit cards.
If any item on your order is out of stock you will be notified within 1 business day; this will void any guarantees on that item’s delivery date in this document.
Orders may be cancelled before engraving or production has begun without penalty. Please note that it is not uncommon for Apple Awards Inc. to start production of orders the same day they are received. If engraving and/or production has already started, there will be a cancellation fee proportional to the amount of the order completed.
We pride ourselves that every order placed with Apple Awards includes expert layout and proofing prior to engraving your awards. We will make every effort to catch errors in your information but will only guarantee replacement of products that display engraving errors that differ from the copy you have submitted. If requested, a .pdf proof will arrive via email within 2 business days from the date of your order placement and must be approved prior to engraving. Up to two different proof layouts are provided for free. Additional proofs are available for $5.00 each. Customers requiring proofs must allow 5 days for production following the approved layout reaching our facility. Apple Awards will e-mail you an acknowledgement once we have received your approved layout. If you do not receive a acknowledgement e-mail please call customer service at 1-800-248-6243 to assure that you order will be promptly processed. If you need your awards faster than our standard production time please review our on-time delivery policy above.
Apple Awards prefers that all artwork be uploaded to your online order at the time it is submitted. If ordering by fax or email you may attach the artwork and send it by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. If that is not possible or your artwork is larger than 8 meg.
