Swagforce and its affiliates (including the business that referred you to the Swagforce.com website) provide their services to you subject to the following conditions. If you visit or shop at 5design.swagforce.com, you accept these conditions. Please read them carefully. In addition, when you use any current or future Swagforce service or visit or purchase from any business affiliated with Swagforce, whether or not included in the Swagforce website, you also will be subject to these guidelines and conditions applicable to such service or business.
Once you place an order at 5design.swagforce.com, it will be entered into our system, and your credit card will be charged for the cost of printing the product and any design time or rush charges discussed, if applicable. If you have received a shipping quote, you may also be charged for shipping and handling at this time.
If you are sending a check, please send it to Swagforce, 2512 S. IH 35, Suite 100, Austin, TX 78704, Attn: Accounting Dept. We cannot begin working on your job until we have payment or until other plans have been made, in writing, in advance.
After the first payment has been received, your job will go into our Graphic Design Department. If we are creating art for you (fees will be discussed in advance), then you will see a proof in a format that works best for you. If you have supplied us with print-ready art, one of our designers will pre-flight the file(s) to ensure that it is ready to go to print. If there are any problems with your art, your Account Manager will contact you immediately to discuss them. You will receive a proof of your art, at which time we ask that you print, sign, and email it back to us indicating your approval. We will get your first proof to you within 1 business day. If you need it sooner, we do have options for Rush (which is an extra charge).
Once your artwork has been approved, your order will then be sent into production. If you have a deadline for production, please contact your Dedicated Account Manager immediately to discuss your options. If you do not specify a timeline, your order will be processed in standard production time. Again, if you have any questions about standard production, please contact your Account Manager for details. As mentioned above, we do have the option for Rush Production, which is an additional charge, but it is available should you need it.
Once you place an order at Swagforce, it will be entered into our system and your credit card will be charged for the cost of printing the product, set-up fees, and any design time or rush charges discussed at the time of order. You may also be charged for shipping and handling on the first charge.
Shortly after your job ships, we will charge your credit card a second time for (i) additional approved charges that have come up during the process, such as overage of product shipped, extra design time, rush charges, etc., and (ii) any shipping and handling due, which has not been previously paid. In some cases, a refund to your credit card is appropriate and will be handled accordingly. You will receive an email each time your credit card is processed detailing the charges. Shipping and handling charges do not necessarily represent shipping rates charged by our shippers and may include handling charges levied by Swagforce. We review supplier and freight invoices for accuracyand will make appropriate adjustments. Any additional costs for goods and services that appear after a job is completed may be billed separately. Once the charges are complete and your job has been closed and finalized in accounting, a copy of the invoice for your order will be e-mailed to you.
Often, customers need to make changes to printing method, ordered quantities, shipping destination(s), shipping method or other items, which may affect pricing. Any such changes after an order is submitted could result in prices that are higher or lower than the price on the initial quote provided. Any changes must be approved by the customer.
In the event that you need to cancel your order, we will strive to do our best to help.
Orders that are cancelled after proof approval but can still be stopped before production begins will be charged a $25 cancellation fee. All other payment will be refunded.
If your order is already in production, we cannot stop or change it. If production has already begun, you will be charged the original amount quoted for your order. We will, however, make every attempt to cease production in a manner which would save as much expense as possible. We will keep you notified of any charges that will be incurred in these instances.
We try to produce your order in the exact quantity ordered but this is not always possible due to custom manufacturing and quality control efforts. Per industry standards, we reserve the right to ship and subsequently bill or credit your charge card or account for up to 10% over or under the quantity ordered.
If you are ordering an item that requires an exact quantity, we can accommodate this need. For exact quantity orders, there may be a small charge for this service. WE WILL QUOTE FOR EXACT QUANTITY ORDERS ONLY WHEN SPECIFICALLY REQUESTED BEFORE THE ORDER IS PLACED. If you are placing an order on our website, please indicate your preference for an exact quantity in the ‘Delivery Instructions’ step of the online process.
Once your order is complete, we will bill or credit your charge card or account per the actual quantity shipped. If you have further questions or comments about Exact Quantity Orders, please contact your Dedicated Account Manager.
The minimum quantity that can be ordered varies on our wide range of products. The specific minimum order requirements, if any, will be contained in the detail information for each product on our website. In some cases, Less Than Minimum Orders are possible and may require an additional charge. Please contact your Dedicated Account Manager if your required amount is not shown on our website.
Swagforce pledges to deliver on when we promise you will receive your important merchandise. Upon ordering any Swagforce product, you may request an estimated in-hands date. Customer supplied artwork problems, art and/other order modifications, approval delays, acts of God, major shipper/carrier labor strikes, overseas customs or inspection delays or other circumstances over which we have no control notwithstanding, Swagforce guarantees that your order will arrive within five business days of your estimated in-hands date or your shipping is free.
Due to the number of variables affecting delivery time, Swagforce does not offer guaranteed delivery dates for international shipments.
If you would like to apply for a shipping discount due to a delivery delay or to discuss our On-Time Guarantee, please contact your Dedicated Account Manager.
Please bear in mind, under extreme circumstances, we may revise shipping estimates due to the complexity of an order.
Swagforce RESERVES THE RIGHT TO REVISE SHIPPING DELIVERY ESTIMATES FOR ANYONE, AT ANY TIME, FOR ANY REASON.
Swagforce and its manufacturers use 3rd party shipping carriers and will charge the customer shipping and handling charges to fulfill and ship the final product per agreed timeframes. The customer is solely responsible for paying for all shipping and handling charges related to orders placed with Swagforce. Swagforce will not offer discounts or refunds of shipping and handling charges, so long as Swagforce received specific instructions or approval for using a particular shipping method and a shipping destination. The customer must have received a shipping estimate in advance of placing an order to have recourse to dispute the final shipping charges.
Due to daily changes in freight surcharges, Swagforce reserves the right to charge up to 10% above and beyond the estimated amount given by the website or a Dedicated Account Manager.
Swagforce welcomes International orders but special considerations are required. It is recommended that you speak directly with your Dedicated Account Manager before placing an International Order.

In some cases, emailed photos of the packing materials and the damaged goods may be requested by your Dedicated Account Manager.
In cases of damage, Swagforce is responsible for replacing the damaged items only, not the entire order.

Any and all disputes, claims or controversies arising out of or relating to this Agreement, the breach thereof, or any use of the Website (including all commercial transactions conducted through the Website) (“Claims”), except for claims filed in a small claims court that proceed on an individual (non-class, non-representative) basis, shall be settled by binding arbitration before a single arbitrator appointed by the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) in accordance with its then governing rules and procedures, including where applicable the AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules. In agreeing to arbitrate all Claims, you and Swagforce waive all rights to a trial by jury in any action or proceeding involving any Claim. The arbitration shall be held in Travis County, Texas, and judgment on the award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof.

Section 1, et seq. This arbitration provision shall survive termination of this Agreement. Subject to the limitations set forth below, the arbitrator shall have authority to award legal and equitable relief available in the courts of the State of Texas, provided that:
The arbitrator shall not have authority to award punitive damages; and
Any and all claims shall be arbitrated on an individual basis only, and shall not be consolidated or joined with or in any arbitration or other proceeding involving a Claim of any other party. You and Swagforce agree that the arbitrator shall have no authority to arbitrate any Claim as a class action or in any other form other than on an individual basis.
For any Claims that are not subject to arbitration: (a) the exclusive jurisdiction and venue for proceedings involving Claims shall be the courts of competent jurisdiction sitting within Travis County, Texas (the “Forum”), and the parties hereby waive any argument that any such court does not have personal jurisdiction or that the Forum is not appropriate or convenient; (b) you and Swagforce waive any and all rights to trial by jury with respect to any Claims.
