In a continuing effort to educate our value customers – promotional item wholesalers, marketing, advertising and PR professionals – this blog will cover many aspects of shipping in detail. Our next blog will complete the shipping process.
Very Important: The shipping request form is a detailed sheet that gives Atlas Embroidery & Screen Printing all the information we will need to ship your order of embellished items. Your shipping request form enumerates your shipping address, and the form of shipping that will employed – UPS or Federal Express and the exact shipping services that you request. Remember, the faster the shipping you request, the more costly it will be. This is a very good reason to place your contract embellishment order early. We take 7-10 business days to complete both screen printing and embroidery orders.
We prefer that you use the shipping request form that is on our Web site. It is a PDF document, which means you can fill it out and email it directly to us. You won’t be able to save the form on your computer, so you’ll need to print it before you shut off your computer. Otherwise, you will lose it. Here are more details about shipping:
- You Must Supply an Email Address – When your order ships via UPS or FedEx you will be notified by UPS or FedEx via the email address that you provide us. Note that it’s crucial that you supply us with an email address that will be used throughout the entire process for ordering, art proofs, shipping, tracking, and so on.
- Residential Delivery is Extra – If you require a residential delivery, UPS and FedEx charge about $2 extra.
Shipping Costs – Unfortunately, we cannot estimate shipping costs for your order, but you can use UPS’s “Calculate Time and Cost” option at Click Here or FedEx at Click Here. Your original supplier of garments or items for embellishment can give you weights and box counts. Once we actually process the shipment, we will send both exact costs of the shipment and the tracking information to the email address you provide.
