Merchandising Campaigns - Campaign Minimum Reserve
Merchandising Campaigns are usually subject to a "Campaign Minimum Reserve" - the point at which a minimum number of (for example, 12 shirts in the case of most T shirt based campaigns) branded merchandise has been sold, such that the minimum reserve is met and the campaign will proceed. In the event a Branded Merchandising Campaign does not meet its minimum reserve and merchandise is not produced, all moneys collected from a purchaser for customized merchandise will be refunded.
No Tax Advice
Deeds not Words works hard to ensure that all our Branded Merchandise is printed to high-quality materials and shipped on time and accurately. Deeds not Words accepts returns and will issue refunds based on the following refund policy:
BRANDED MERCHANDISE SALES CAMPAIGNS NOT MEETING MINIMUM RESERVE.
Purchases of branded merchandise, made in connection with a Merchandising Campaign, will be refunded in the event the Merchandising Campaign does not meet its minimum reserve and the branded merchandise is not produced.
DAMAGED ITEM / LOW QUALITY PRINT
We take our commitment to providing you with the best quality product very seriously. In case you receive a damaged item or if you believe the print quality is not satisfactory, please contact us at email@example.com, please include a photograph showing the poor quality of the print or the damaged area of the item. The best images are on a flat surface, with the error clearly displayed.
We will use this information to help you with your order, and eliminate errors in future printing.
RETURN FOR ANY CAUSE
Refunds for any other reason besides poor quality product or printing are not offered on merchandise sales.
Contributions to Donation Campaigns, along with our fees and charges, are not refundable.
