EPROMOS shall only commence production of decorated Products and/or Products created by EPROMOS after written acceptance of the order proof by the CUSTOMER. The CUSTOMER may in writing to EPROMOS waive the formalities of approving and sending the proof and its acceptance. In this case, the production of the decorated Products and/or Products to be created by EPROMOS shall only be commenced when EPROMOS has received a document signed and dated by the CUSTOMER valid for agreement for the launch of production without approval of the proof and cancelling any claims or damages against EPROMOS which may have been made. Where applicable, the proof shall be either a virtual, paper and/or actual sample of the decorated Product and/or the Product to be created, or an example of the decorated Product/Products to be created.

Each order will be sent an automatic order acknowledgement. Fees may be associated with the development and listing of a CUSTOMER branded online store specific to CUSTOMER needs.
3. PRODUCT COLOR AND APPEARANCE
Every effort has been made to ensure that the products displayed on this site appear as accurately as possible. Product colors and images may appear distorted, or colors may not appear as they do due to configurations with your computer system. Please request a sample for best results.
4. SITE IMAGES
We make best efforts to provide clear and color-correct product images on our site that best reflect the true nature of the products. However, web site images are inherently limited in their ability to communicate color, scale, and detail. We want to remind CUSTOMERS to be careful about making assumptions about products from the site image alone. We strongly urge our CUSTOMERS to order actual samples. If you choose not to evaluate a physical sample, we cannot be held responsible for the difference between the image as it appears on your monitor and the final product.
5. AVAILABILITY OF PRODUCTS
Offers of Products are valid subject to stock availability. We try to produce your order in the exact quantity ordered, but this is not always possible due to quality control efforts and fast running machines. We reserve the right to ship and subsequently bill or credit, your charge card or account, for up to 10% over or under the desired quantity. In the case of stock shortages, EPROMOS shall advise the CUSTOMER of this if we are made aware.
In the case of a request for replacement of Products which are out of stock by other Products, a new quotation shall be provided. There shall then be two options:
- either the replacement Products are less expensive than the out-of-stock Products; in which case EPROMOS shall then send a credit memo to the CUSTOMER for the difference if the Product has already invoiced
- or the replacement Products are more expensive than the out-of-stock Products; in which case the CUSTOMER shall validate and approve the price difference in writing prior to EPROMOS commencement of production of the order.
All merchandise is shipped FOB origin and pricing for shipping and handling are not included in the pricing. We are happy to provide shipping quotes. We typically ship UPS, FEDEX or Truck pending the shipment origin, shipment size and desired in-hands date.
Place of delivery
Deliveries shall be made to the address indicated on the purchase order or in the case of the order placement on www.epromos.com, the delivery address will be captured in the shipping field online. If no address is noted or provided or if there is a perceived problem with the shipping details provided by CUSTOMER, the delivery will not be processed, and the CUSTOMER contacted.
Transport: The Products are sold ‘ex-factory’ or ex-warehouse, the costs and risks of transport are at the sole expense of the CUSTOMER.
Delivery dates: Delivery dates are given as a guide only due to the uncertainties of transport. EPROMOS undertakes to use its best endeavors to comply with the desired delivery dates indicated, except in circumstances beyond its control and in situations under force majeure.
Quantities delivered: Given the uncertainties of manufacturing and decorating, the CUSTOMER is advised that the quantities delivered, in the case of blank and decorated Products created by EPROMOS, may vary by plus or minus 5% compared to the quantities ordered by CUSTOMER. Invoicing shall then be based on the quantities actually delivered to CUSTOMER.
We make every effort to accurately estimate shipping charges. From time to time, we may underestimate the shipping charges on your order. In such event we may make reasonable adjustments to your shipping charges. You always have the option to provide us with a shipping account number (a small handling charge may apply). If there are additional carrier charges which occur at any point which are associated to your order such as residential shipping fees and product re-directs, we reserve the right to charge you as those carrier expenses become known.
