Once your order is placed, immediately send any necessary artwork to [email protected] Your email must include all instructions relating to your logo/artwork.
We inspect all submitted art to work to make certain it meets specific requirements in order to apply your design(s). We require all submitted artwork/logos in certain formats (i.e., vector format).
If you are in need of custom graphic images for your product(s), there is a $50.00 design fee per image.
We assume you have lawful rights and/or permissions to use any artwork, logos and/or graphic designs you provide to us and we are not liable for misuse of any such graphics.
We atrive to provide clear and color-correct images that reflect the true nature of our products; however, website images are innately limited in their ability to communicate, scale and detail so the color in your proof may not be the exact color you receive on your wristbands.
The colors offered for our products are displayed in pantone colors on the colors page listed under the Design tab.
When ordering Swirl wristbands please note that certain colors may bleed into other colors, essentially creating a new color on the bands (i.e., yellow + blue = green, red + yellow = orange, etc.). WristbandBuddy is not liable to issue refunds on customized silicone products due to "bleeding" as we cannot control this process which naturally occurs during the mixing of the silicone.
We do not provide digital proofs unless custom artwork is added to the product and/or the customer specifically asks for one in the Special Instructions box (on the Design Page) when placing an order or in an email sent PRIOR to placing an order, or if we are working with a customer to design a product that our Custom Builder (via the Design Page) cannot "build" automatically through the website. If these specific circumstances do not apply to your order you will not receive a digital proof when you place your order and your order will be sent directly to Production.
It is the customer's responsibility to follow up on the digital proof as soon as the order has been placed or PRIOR to the order being placed of the order is placed via email.
If a digital proof is not responded to within one (1) business day WristbandBuddy will assume that the customer does not require any changes or further approval for their order and will start production on the order as is. Furthermore, it is the customer's responsibility to call our customer care department in the event the digital proof has not been received by the customer to ensure proper communication regarding any changes and/or approval and placement of the order.
Although we cannot duplicate orders 100% we will try to replicate a re-order as close to the original as possible.
We cannot guarantee same color bands on re-orders.
