Due to the uncertainty caused by the USTR import tariffs imposed on items manufactured from certain materials, prices on several of our products are subject to increase with little or no advanced notice. Customer acknowledges that additional tariffs may be imposed on items manufactured in countries outside the USA and may be levied upon arrival in the USA. Since duties are sometimes charged and sometimes not, even from the same country at different times, these duties, if any, cannot be estimated or charged prior to the items arrival in the USA and may not be included in the initial price quoted to customer or charged on the initial invoice. All Duties and taxes must be paid before shipment is made to purchaser. Only the exact duties levied will be charged to the customer.
Q: How Long Does It Take Before My Sculpture Order Is Shipped? Shipping Time Depends On Several Factors. If Your Retail Order Is Less Than Ten Pieces Your Items Will Ship Generally Within 3-5 Days After Your Order Is Placed. All Sculptures Are Considered Custom Manufactured Items And Are "Made To Order". This Period Of Time Allows Your Order To Be Manufactured, Painted And Allowed To Properly Cure Before It Can Be Packaged And Shipped. If Your Order Is Larger Than Ten Pieces, Typically For An Event, We Guarantee That Your Order Will Be Received In Time For That Event. We Cannot Give A Standard Shipping Time For Large Orders As We May Have Other Orders In Front Of Yours That Are To Be Manufactured And Shipped First And There Is No Way To Tell How Many Orders Will Be In Front Of Yours Until Your Order Is Actually Placed. If We Are Shipping Your Order To Your Requested Destination Our Liability For Damages Only Covers The Shipment From Our Warehouse To That Original Destination. If You Are Forwarding Your Shipment To Second Location Via A Second Shipper Then That Shipper Is Responsible For Damages From That Point Forward. IF YOU ARE FORWARDING YOUR SHIPMENT TO A SECOND LOCATION WE DO ENCOURAGE YOU TO CHECK YOUR SHIPMENT WHEN IT ARRIVES FROM OUR WAREHOUSE BEFORE IT IS SENT TO ITS SECOND LOCATION AND CONTACT US FOR REPLACEMENTS. If Damages Are Found At Its Final Destination And No Damage Was Noted As It Arrived From Our Warehouse To The First Destination We Cannot Be Responsible For Free Replacement. Replacement Costs Will Then Be The Responsibility Of The Second Shipper.
Q: If I'm Ordering Sculptures For An Event, How Far Out From My Event Date Do I Need To Place My Order? Since All Of Our Sculptures Are "Made To Order" We Ask, At Minimum, Eight Weeks Advance Notice To Place You On Our Production Schedule. This Includes Time For Your Sculptures To be Manufactured, Painted And Allowed To Fully Cure Before Being Packaged. In Some Rare Instances A Rush Charge May Also Be Applicable On Orders Placed Less Than Eight Weeks From Your Event Since We Must Incur Overtime Labor And Manufacturing Expenses To Complete Your Order Since Your Order Was Placed Late. This Usually Applies Only In Extreme Instances But Is Possible.
Q: Do you Offer Payment Plans Or Credit Terms. Basically Can I Pay For My Order After My Event? Unfortunately We Do Not Offer Credit Terms. We Cannot Release Your Order To You Without Receiving Payment In Full.
Q: How Do I Order Inserts So That I Can Mount My Sculptures On Bases? If You Wish To Include Inserts For Your Sculptures Then We Ask That You Specify The Need For Inserts At The Same Time That You Place Your Initial Order. We Do Not Place Inserts By Default In Sculptures. We Also Cannot Add Inserts To Sculptures That Are Already Cast.
Q: Do You Offer Refunds Or Buy Backs? As Stated On Your Invoice For Review Before Payment Is Made, All Sales Are Final. This Includes All Trophies, Rings, Medals, Custom Trophy Plates, Etc. If You Have Left Over Sculptures Most Promoters Will Choose To Save Them For The Following Year Or Sell Them To Other Promoters. We Do Not "Buy Back" Unused Trophies Or Offer Refunds For Any Of Our Products. If You Are Unsure About The Quantity Of Trophies You May Need For Your Event We Do Offer A Delivery/Setup Service (Typically Available In Florida Only).
Q: What Does Your "Delivery/Setup Service" Include? This Service Includes Delivery, Plating And Setup At Your Event. You Will Only Be Required To Purchase The Amount Of Awards That You Need For That Event. This Service Provides For A Fee Based Upon The Distance Traveled However This Fee Is Waived If Your Event Purchases 75 Trophies Or More At Any Event Within 250 Miles Of Sarasota Florida Or 150 Trophies Or More At Any Event Greater Than 250 Miles From Sarasota Florida. If Any Portion Of Your Order Has Been Discounted Then This Set Up/Service Fee Remains In Effect Regardless Of The Number Of Trophies Purchased. If You Would Like To Request Our Set Up Service, And If Your Date Is Available Then You Must Request It AT THE TIME THE ORDER IS INITIALLY PLACED And Should Be Noted On The Original Invoice. Special Orders, Bases, Custom Medals And Other Custom Products Are Non Refundable And Require Payment In Full Prior To Production. Our Setup Service Does Not Apply To Medals Unless Your Event Features Trophies/Sculptures For A 51% Majority Of Your Placings. For More Details Please Feel Free To Contact Us.
Q: What If A Competitor Or Event Staff Damages A Trophy At Or After An Event? Upon Delivery We Guarantee That Each Trophy Is Damage Free, Devoid Of Chips, Cracks Or Other Defects. When Delivery Is Made To You Or To Your Event You Have The Opportunity To Inspect Each Sculpture And Note Any Damage, Which We Will Then Replace At Our Cost. Once You Or Your Staff Takes Delivery Of Your Order Then Responsibility For Damage For The Entire Order Transfers To The Promoter. If Your Order Was Shipped To You Via A Third Party Shipper (UPS, FedEx, Etc.) We Allow 48 Hours From The Time Of Confirmed Delivery To Inspect Your Order And Contact Us With Any Claims For Damages. If An Athlete Damages Their Sculpture Either During Or After An Event It Is The Responsibility Of The Promoter (Or Competitor Themselves) To Replace The Damaged Item At Promoter Cost. We Cannot, At Our Cost, Replace Sculptures Damaged By Competitors After They Have Been Delivered Undamaged.
