Order Acceptance Policy

Receiving an order confirmation (electronically or otherwise) does not indicate that we have accepted your order. We reserve the right after receiving your order to accept or decline your order or to supply less than the quantity you ordered for any item, for any reason. If we are not able to fulfill the amount for the items that you have ordered, than we will  ship the products without the full quantity, you have the option to be refunded the full  price you paid for those missing items or get them shipped to you at a later date.

Order Revisions / Cancellations / Errors

To provide customers with the best online retail experience possible, our store makes it our motto to process all orders in record time in order to get it out the door and into customer hands sooner than they expected. And due to the difficulty in locating a single order amongst mountains of orders, in most cases, we are unfortunately unable to make changes and cancellations once an order has been processed and is being prepared for shipping. Therefore, before placing your order, please review your cart before clicking submit. 

Concerning dye lots of our products

Due to tremendous demands for our products, it requires that we use multiple manufacturers to produce enough to fulfill all our customers needs. Although we do our best to control the consistency of the colors/shades of our products across the manufacturers, because of this, it's possible that there may be slight shade variations if you re-order the same item/color/style if some time has past between the different orders. We can guarantee that within a single order, the color/shade of every piece of a certain item will match up exactly. (I.E. if you place an order for 500 Red Satin Napkins, we guarantee that ALL 500 napkins from that order will match up exactly). However, if you re-order the same item several months later, there may slight shade variations, and may not match 100% with your previous order. Although any color/shade variations will only be slight.

These factors are beyond the control of our stuff as they go through an incredible number of orders daily and expecting them to match colors/shades from previous orders is impossible. Dye lots issues does not qualify for replacements. If you would like us to attempt to match products from your new order with a color/shade from a previous order, you understand you will be responsible for all shipping costs that will be incurred. There will be no compensation given for different dye lot, or color/shade issues.

Weather caused delays

We will not be held responsible for delays caused by severe weather conditions. Unfortunately UPS, USPS, nor us has any control over forces of nature and the effects it may have over transit and/or delivery of your order. Although we do process and ship out orders very promptly, we can not be held responsible for delays due to these types of factors that are simply out of our control. There will be no compensation for any delays caused by weather, unforeseen circumstances out of our control, or forces of nature.

Concerning order errors

Order errors are defined as: damaged, incorrect, or missing merchandise. Please review your order immediately after it's received, so that if any order errors are found, can be brought to our attention quickly and resolved for you. Order errors must be brought to our attention within 3 business days after order delivery has been completed. Failure to do so will be interpreted as negligence and you will therefore hold us harmless on any orders/issues that you do not make us aware of. All reshipments for order errors that we determine will require replacements can only be sent via ground shipping, regardless of the situation/cause.


We reserve the right to refuse or accept any orders as per our own discretion.
