The 'estimated' value is not set and may be adjusted at any time before, during or after the order is completed. If at any time, additional costs are incurred by us for shipping, insurance, administration or any other, such costs and a administration fee are payable by the customer. The Shipping Estimator attempts to value shipping to your region and may require formal quoting for your zip/postcode, property or building etc. The Shipping estimator is via standard courier to nearest point of delivery for your location and does not include any additional instructions, fees or logistic requirements that may suit your final delivery destination(s). All shipping estimates are for one (1) standard location. Parcels may be bulk packed or individual at SignsBannersOnline discretion and charged by either weight or cubic measurement whichever is the greater. At any stage if we are charged or incur extra costs above allowed for shipping these costs plus any administration fees are payable by the customer. The value set by any shipping estimate is not accepted as final. If you have multiple points of delivery (eg. Split orders) please proceed through the cart pages as 'No pay online' and our team members will formally quote multiple shipping destinations. Flat fee and weight based formulas are used for shipping and these may change from time to time.
If at any time you require a formal transport company quotation including handling charges etc; please contact our team using our contact page.
The Shipping Estimator determines the shipping estimate based off product pricing and promoted location. This is an estimate, not conclusion and variations may be applied. The shipping estimate does not allow for line-haul delays, custom or bond store delays or any delay of any kind. It is an estimate of smooth process only and used as a guide only.

REGION OR AREA NOT SERVICED If your region or area is not serviced, continue with order allocating a nearby location for pickup or extended arrangement by you.

PACKAGE SIZES In general, items are 'packed together' to lower shipping costs. When two or more items are ordered, the package size may vary depending on logistics, destination, fragility and/or cubic measurements and other. The Shipping Estimator can not determine when multiple products are or are not packed together and you should not rely upon any order being 'packed together'.
Package sizes are determined by allowing a reasonable protective value around the item. Eg. Cartons may include 5mm extra packaging size around the sign to protect edges etc. Boxes may be standard flute whilst express bags may also be used. For package sizes, please refer to the size guide on each product detail page.
IF you intend to 'bulk pack' different orders together this is not possible. ONLY one order per order is packed. This means clientX is not packed with ClientY.

Products offered are considered temporary and as such should be fitted or dismantled to suit reasonable conditions. Do not allow any product to billow, stretch or suffer any stress. If eyelet(s) are pulled out from the product you should dismantle the product and repair. Normal manufacturing occurs using ink printing systems that may leave residue, roller marks, blemishes or spots that are not reason for warranty and are part of normal manufacturing printing processes and can not be avoided and may be visible within 30 paces.

The U.S. Government generally expects a flag to last approximately 90 days based on daily usage from sunrise to sunset - but not during periods of inclement weather.

Font Replace/Substitution We do not manually 'search for' or 'replace fonts' if they do not exist on our systems. PSD, AI, CDR etc may attempt to replace fonts if fonts in your files are missing, however WE DO NOT ACCEPT responsibility for any font replace/substitution. When font substitution is being used to find a replacement for an unavailable character, it can lead to inconsistent visual appearance as part of a word or sentence is displayed in one font and another part is displayed in the substituted font. A method to work around this problem is to display the entire word or paragraph in the substituted font. Nevertheless, font substitution may be critical to scripts not well supported by a large font inventory having the required Unicode range. You should rasterize all elements of your print files and submitted flattened design files only.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Set-Up is not Artwork. We include an Instant Preview also known as a an 'on-line signature proof' with all signage to set-up (uploaded) your design ready for manufacturing and machines unless otherwise specified. This does not include 'creative' or 'artwork alteration', 'redesign' or 'color changes, fonts' etc. Set-up is used only to load machinery with your signed approval ready for manufacturing.
