Delivery Terms & Conditions
Correction of Addresses
Definition of Delivery
When choosing an address to have your order shipped to may be important to have it going to an address that has someone available to receive and secure the order. If you do not have an address that can be safe to have UPS just leave a package at the address without a signature, please phone in your order. By phoning in the order we can designate to UPS that a “Signature is Required” for an additional UPS Fee of $5.00 per package. This will protect you in that it will not be left unsigned and possibly stolen. BABCOR & UPS are not responsible for orders that are missing, stolen or damaged after delivery by the driver. The UPS driver has the discretion to leave a package unsigned, but they will not assume any liability unless you specify “Signature Required for Delivery”.
We ship all orders via UPS, and shipping time depends on the method you've selected and your location relative to our shipping points. In addition to UPS Ground, we offer a variety of faster air options.
UPS Ground Orders: If your order is placed by 2:00pm EST (Monday - Friday), your order will ship the same day for in-stock products. Some products may be shipped directly from the manufacturer. In these cases your order will ship within 48 hours. Most of our orders ship from our main Midwest warehouse in Pennsylvania, but some orders may ship from our distribution facilities around the USA, such as Minnesota, Oregon, California, Oklahoma, Atlanta, New York, Ohio, Kentucky, Wisconsin or Alabama.
UPS Next Day / 2nd Day / 3-Day Select Orders: If your order is placed by 1:00pm EST (Monday - Friday), your order will ship the same day for in-stock products.
NOTE: For time sensitive orders please call us toll-free at 800-321-2247 for exact shipping lead times and delivery options.
Most orders (over 95%) will ship complete the same day the order is placed provided we have it before 2PM EST. When we are out of stock on something we usually can drop ship that item which may increase the lead time by a couple days. If we anticipate a longer delay than a couple days we will contact you to see if an alternate item will work or if you will allow us more time to fulfill your order. We try our hardest to maintain our inventory of all things at all times but erratic or unexpected order flow or factory delays sometimes come into play. We promise to always do whatever we can to get your needs met in the time frame you require.

Lead times vary greatly depending on a number of factors. If you need items to arrive by a certain date we will do our best to accommodate that date. Lead times to get the finished product are estimates and not a guarantees since as actual production and shipping times can vary depending on circumstances or conditions that were not present when the order was placed or things that are out of our control such as weather or delays in transit.

Most of our printing is roll to roll Flexography or Post-Printed Hotstamping. We do many lower minimum Hot Stamping print orders in house and run larger orders at our manufacturing facilities either in the USA or in other countries, depending on the quantities and print requirements to that specific job. Print tolerances and abilities vary greatly and should be discussed prior to placing an order.
Over and Under Runs are Industry Standard and usual with custom projects which means most any order will be subject to over-runs or under-runs resulting in more or less of a finished product. The customer is responsible for the cost of what is produced up to the actual amount produced as long as it doesn't exceed the over-under standards of that size order. Each manufacturing plant has different over and under-run policies and this information is available upon request and should be considered prior to ordering.
Samples may be requested by contacting us by phone or email. While most samples will be free of charge, some may have a cost to cover the item. Those requesting samples will be charged actual shipping and handling.
