Fabric Shade Data Tags:
Customer data tags with customer name, description and price can be added to any single fabric shade order over $1500. Customer should inform us of the name and pricing to place on the tags. Offer is valid for a single order of fabric shades and excludes back orders and stock outs.
Due to factors beyond our control, we must apply special charges to certain
shipments and/or items. 1) Because UPS and Fed Ex Ground honor less than 50% of
our claims, we must charge a handling fee for all UPS AND Fed Ex Ground
shipments. The handling fee is $1.00 per carton for UPS and Fed Ex Ground
shipments, $1.50 per carton on C.O.D. shipments. 2) Due to the structural sensitivity of the
14" and larger diameter shades, they must be repacked and heavily padded
prior to shipment. On orders shipped by UPS or Fed Ex Ground we must charge a
$1.00 per carton packing charge on 14", and up to 24" diameter glass
& fabric shades.
An additional charge, per carton, will be included in our shipping charges for packing material which are not included in the cost of our products.
