Order Submission

Orders may be submitted by fax or email to: order@hylinepromo.com

Order Cancellations/Returns/Refunds/Exchanges
Since all our products are custom manufactured and decorated to each order's exacting requirements, they cannot be returned for refund or exchanged under any circumstances whatsoever. An order is considered firm when placed. All order cancellations must be submitted in writing and confirmed by Hyline. If an order is cancelled in the midst of production, customers are liable for work in progress charges. In such an instance, you should consult with our customer care representatives for cancellation costs. A completed order cannot be cancelled after it's shipped.

Order acknowledgement & pre-invoice

An order acknowledgement is issued and emailed upon processing every order. Details of all orders should be confirmed by the distributor for accuracy. A pro-forma invoice may also be issued upon request; however freight, overs, and applable taxes can only be applied after the order has shipped.

Credit terms for new distributors

Our customer care department will create a new corporate account in our system upon receipt of an order placed by a new distributor to Hyline. All new accounts are subject to credit card terms until a sufficient credit history is established. Although credit card information is gathered before entering an order, credit card payments are processed only upon shipment of the order. We may require a deposit depending on the value of the order. In the event that a deposit is required, our credit department will advise the distributor of the amount to be paid prior to issuing an art proof. All orders are subject to credit clearance in advance of production.

Artwork

Art proofs are issued within 24 hours of receipt of credit approval. Depending on the requirements, our art department can create or modify artwork for an additional fee. This charge is based on the amount of time required for our art department to re-create, convert, or modify the artwork. The fee is billed at a rate of $12.50 (G) for every 10 minutes spent. Please email artwork to artwork@hylinepromo.com and reference your purchase order # on the subject line. Artwork must be saved as camera-ready vector based PDF, AI, or EPS files wth all the text converted into lines and curves. JPEGS, TIFFS, PMDS GIFS, or BMPS file formats are not useable.

Production

Our production lead times vary throughout the year usually averaging 3-4 weeks but can extend to as long as 5 weeks from credit and artwork approval. Due to disruptions caused by the unprecendented COVID-19 pandemic, our production lead times have been extended accordingly.Our customer care team will confirm the projected lead time when an order is received.

If an order must be shipped earlier than the assigned production timeline, a rush charge will apply: $85.00 (x) or 15% of the subtotal (whichever is greater.) Completion of time-sensitive, event-based orders are subject to Hyline’s confirmation.  Since all our products are manufactured to order, we reserve the right to overrun or underrun by 10% and bill accordigly. If exact quantities are requested, a 12% surcharge will apply.

All custom sealing & cutting dies, stamping dies, and silk-screening films are the property of HYLINE Dateminder Inc.

Calendar Refill Orders
We are pleased to sell calendar refills for most of our Calendar Products. This allows a lower cost alternative for customers that have purchased an equal number of complete calendars in the previous year. Only customers that have purchsaed complete calendars are eligible to purchase calendar refills only.

Invoices & shipment notices

Invoices are issued within 24 hours of shipment of an order. Invoices are emailed for all orders and courier tracking numbers provided on request. 

Freight

Hyline uses an array of courier and cartage companies at competitive freight rates. UPS is our preferred courier company. If the distributorship requests the use of its own courier account number, it must provide a valid courier account at the time of shipping and a shipment handling fee would apply. Any additional charges resulting from invalid or suspended courier accounts or inaccurate or incomplete shipping addresses are the sole responsibility of the distributor.

Kindly note that during cold winter months heated truck transport may be required to ensure the safe transport of vinyl products to your required destination. Cold-cracking of vinyl is a likelihood with standard courier delivery. Freight quotes can be provided for your order upon request.
