We make every effort to fill your order to your specifications. The ordering process for imprinted goods allows you the opportunity to obtain a sample of the goods (often at no charge) before ordering and to approve your print proof before the imprinting process begins.

Unauthorised returns are not accepted.
Any imprinted products returned in violation of this policy will be discarded at Opus Print Limited discretion.
If a customer chooses to purchase blank items without any imprint from Opus Print Limited and then has a third party company apply a custom imprint to those items, please be advised that, after imprinting, Opus Promotions cannot open any claims or fix any problems that may occur with the items. Any issues regarding blank items must be addressed before the items are sent to another company for imprinting.
In the case that you believe you received a product or order in error, please contact your Account Manager within 5 working days of receipt of the merchandise. Claims made after this time will not be reviewed. Before Opus Print Limited l can begin to process a claim, a sampling of the goods (quantity will be determined at Opus Print Limited discretion) must be provided for us to review. Opus Print Limited reserves the right to take up to ten working days to process/review a claim from the date of receipt of the goods in question. Any credits, returns, or refunds will be processed within 30 working days after review, unless otherwise noted. Please see our payment policy for further information.
