An Acknowledgement & Art Layout is sent to you via fax or e-mail for your review & approval. Once it has been accepted, we will place the order and have shipped to your desired location or made available for pick up. Companies that are set up with credit terms will get invoiced. If you have not been pre-approved for credit terms, you will be asked for a deposit prior to the order being placed. At PromoCentre we really try to make it easy for you.

Q: If we need large quantities how can you reduce our costs?
A: If you have the lead time we can have orders produced overseas which would cut your costs and allow for more customization if needed.
