POLICY ON OVERRUNS
Electronic Imaging Materials, Inc. works to manufacture the highest quality bar code label products. At the same time, we strive to control resource usage and maintain the lowest possible prices.
The manufacturing processes used to manufacture labels and ribbons sometimes result in larger or smaller quantities than the amount ordered. To ensure consistent product, a certain amount of time and material is required to setup a job. Not until the job is definitely running smoothly does an official count begin. Our goal is to produce an amount equal to or slightly greater than the amount ordered, allowing for final judgment of quality during inspection. This practice has been incorporated into our pricing policies so that we are able to maintain lower prices than would otherwise be practical.
The end result is that the amount of material produced may exceed the exact order quantity. While the standard industry policy is to ship overages (or shortages) amounting to +/- 10% of the quantity ordered, we attempt to avoid any amount smaller than the amount ordered since that may create more difficulties than an extra amount. It is our experience that this extra amount may be up to 10%.
It is the policy at Electronic Imaging Materials, Inc. to do everything we can to ship you the right product the first time and each and every time. However, we recognize that humans are not perfect. Errors are rare and we seek to resolve them fairly and promptly.
When an error occurs, we ask that you contact our Sales Department immediately. Please indicate what the problem is -- for example: "wrong quantity" or "wrong product received." In order to assure that a similar error does not occur on your orders, or any other orders, we will investigate the cause of the error. When we discover the source of the error, we will take action to resolve any underlying procedure or other factors that might have contributed to your problem.
Software and hardware products may be returned for replacement credit only. Opened software products will not be accepted for return or replacement. We provide replacement hardware or software only if the product you receive is (a) defective or (b) not the item you ordered. To qualify for any replacement credit, you must return the product to us with all components and packaging in original condition within 7 days from the day you received it. After 7 days, we will not accept the product for return. Please contact the original manufacturer for warranty coverage and product service.
When returning any product to us, please follow these steps:
- Call for a Return Merchandise Authorization (RMA#). When a problem occurs, we ask that you contact our Sales Department immediately. If the problem appears to be a result of our error, one of our labeling professionals will issue a Return Merchandise Authorization number (RMA#) which must appear on the outside of the packaging when you return product to us. We will not accept shipments without a clearly-marked RMA number.
- Properly Prepare Goods for Return.
- Use the original packaging. We recommend double boxing all returns to help eliminate restocking fees and to keep the product in "like new" condition.
- Return all materials in original condition. Make sure your returns are complete with all materials, manuals, cables, warranty cards and static bags (just as you received it).
- Do not write on inner product boxes. We charge a restocking fee of at least 15% for products and/or packaging not returned in resalable condition.
- Prepay Freight Charges or Request a Prepaid Call Tag. We will not accept COD shipments.
- Credit will be issued. The Accounting Department of Electronic Imaging Materials, Inc. will issue an appropriate credit within thirty (30) days of the date of your return.
