*IMPORTANT- WHEN ORDERING MULTIPLE ITEMS, THE ITEM WITH THE LONGEST DELIVERY TIME FRAME WILL APPLY TO THE ENTIRE ORDER. INTERNATIONAL ORDERS ADD AN ADDITIONAL WEEK DUE TO THE SHIPPING PROCESS.
WHY IS YOUR SHIPPING RATE SO HIGH FOR SMALL ITEMS?
Our shipping rate for both US and international orders is based on a one pound package with insurance up to $100. While many packages do not weigh one pound, Fed Ex automatically rounds up to the nearest pound so even small orders like 20 clothing labels would still be considered as a one pound package.
WHAT ARE YOUR SHIPPING / HANDLING FEES & WHAT SHIPPING SERVICES DO YOU USE?
Our Web Site is set up to pull the rates directly off of the web sites of whichever shipping service that you select. Both Fed Ex and The United States Postal Service charge by the weight of your package, your delivery zip code, The state you live in as well as other factors which include rural area zip codes & home or business delivery. We offer both Fed Ex as well as United States Postal Service(USPS). You can visit either of these sites to see how their holiday schedules are running. We do charge a nominal handling fee which varies based on amount of items ordered.Please Keep in mind-Fed Ex Overnight & 2 Day air delivers on business days ONLY- NOT on Saturdays or Sundays.
The days listed are transit times and do not include the time it takes to make & process your order. We do offer Rush services which MUST be phoned in. Call us at 800-241-2890 to inquire.
DO YOU SHIP INTERNATIONALLY?
We do ship internationally. Once you have added items to your cart and check-out, you will be able to view the shipping fees for the country you have selected. PLEASE NOTE: We DO NOT accept orders from Nigeria, Ghana, Indonesia, Romania, Malaysia, Singapore (along with a few other countries) due to a high volume of prior fraudulent occurrences. We reserve the right to refuse any order we deem suspicious, fraudulent or unacceptable for any reason. We reserve the right to perform additional credit card security checks when deemed necessary.
WHAT IS YOUR SHIPPING POLICY?
We make every effort to get your items to you quickly and efficiently. We asked that you please double check your shipping address as additional shipping charges will apply if your package is returned to us for an invalid or incomplete address.
Once an order is placed and in the warehouse for processing, we can not change the shipping information. Signatures are required on some packages, failure to sign can result in the package being returned to us.
We will not be held responsible for incurring the fee on returned packages or for shipping the item back to you, so additional fees will apply. Since we have no control over the shipping carrier, if your item is damaged in the mail, please keep your damaged package so that we can file a claim. We also do not refund Rush or delivery fees for late deliveries due to acts of nature which include tornado, hurricane, snow, ice storms etc...) If this happens, call us immediately for further instructions. We are not responsible for refunding shipping and handling charges. If you return any non personalized items (this includes undamaged non personalized boxes ONLY) You must have an authorized return number provided by Namemaker and We charge a 15% restocking fee and we will NOT refund your shipping/handling charges- no exceptions. If you choose to wave the signature and have the packaged delivered when you are not home, it will be your responsibility to pay for the cost of remaking and reshipping the item.
There are some occasions if you order more than one item they might be shipped separately and arrive to you at different times.
DO YOUR IRON ON LABELS REALLY STAY ON?
This is one of the most common questions we receive and the answer is a great big YES! Sorry to brag, but our iron on material actually gives us the right to do so. It has worked for us for over 70 years! When you iron on one of our labels to clothing or fabric, it creates a bond that permanently adheres the two pieces together. This process is far superior to the stick on clothing labels (that other companies sell) which sit on top of the fabric and fall off once washed. Our labels will not fade & will undoubtedly withstand high heat washing, drying, dry cleaning, etc... We sell to thousands of nursing care facilities who will back up this claim. What is so ironic, is that we often receive calls from customers requesting instruction on how to remove the labels from their clothing that they are donating.
ARE RUSH ORDERS AVAILABLE?
ALL RUSH orders must be phoned in to our customer service department at

The cost of press proofs vary due to equipment and set up times. Please be aware, press proofs may add additional time to your turnaround.
