Promotional Product Pricing Philosophy
We understand that you want the best advertising product value for your money. That is one of the reasons why we publish our best and most competitive promotional merchandise prices in our catalog/web site. What our customers find when considering their history with MARCO is responsive service, accurate orders, on time delivery, quality products and competitive pricing. We guarantee that MARCO is able to provide a better price for equal quality products than its competitors, while continuously providing excellent customer service. From time to time, we may run promotional offers. Please note that offers may not be combined and do not apply to on sale merchandise; however, we will make sure you receive the lowest offered price based on the promotions you received. We reserve the right to correct any pricing errors or detail omissions that may occur.
Promotional Products Discount Policy
Website, catalog, and email offers may not be combined with other sales, current offers, free shipping, custom quotations or product requests beyond catalog quantities. You may use the better offer when applicable.
Promotional Product Ordering Options
Our customers have the choice of ordering
For your convenience MARCO accepts VISA, MasterCard, Discover and American Express.

If your organization is exempt from CT, PA or WI state sales tax, we require a copy of your tax exemption certificate for our file.

For your convenience you can download a copy of a blank exemption certificate for CT here, PA here, and for WI here. Please call our Customer Care Center at 877.545.9322 for more information.
Custom Imprint Set-Up/Screen/Die Charges
The Set-Up Charge applies to many orders for custom imprinted items and is charged for the labor necessary to calibrate the equipment or machinery to your specific requirements, such as color and size of the imprint.
The Screen Charge applies to the process of creating a silk screen or plate in order to apply your personalized imprint and colors onto the product. This is a one time only charge, unless the imprint changes.
The Ribbon Die Charge applies to ribbon titles not in our stock inventory that will be created to your specifications. We retain the badge ribbon die for four years after each use.
Shipping and Handling Charges
Prices do not include shipping & handling charges. All advertising merchandise is shipped FOB origin - we prepay shipping cost and add to sales acknowledgement & invoice unless an alternate shipper account number is provided. Promotional materials are shipped either via Fed Ex, UPS or truck depending on weight, date needed and delivery location. Freight savings based on negotiated rates are another way MARCO saves you money.
Quick Ship & 24 Hour Production Options For Promotional Products
Most of our promotional products can ship in 10 days or less. Quick Ship items can be shipped even faster. Please contact us first so we can confirm product availability for larger orders. Production times for individual products are noted in the item detail sections throughout this web site.
Hundreds of best selling custom imprinted items are available with a 24 Hour priority production process option. Most '24-Hour' items can ship the next business day, for no additional charge, with final order and art approval received by 3 PM EST (times vary per product). Actual delivery times depend upon final destination location and preferred shipping methods. Contact a Promotional Products Expert today to find out how we can help ensure that your personalized items are ready to ship within 24 hours.
Return & Cancellation Policy
Returns on unimprinted merchandise can be accepted if the request is made within 30 days from receipt of purchase. Returned items will be inspected for quality issues before credit is given. A 20% or $25.00 restocking fee may apply (which ever is greater). Returns on custom-imprinted products cannot be returned for credit without prior approval. Please contact your account representative concerning quality issues on your order. Unauthorized returns will not be accepted. Please contact us for a return authorization number. Please understand that all printed products are customized based on your specifications and once manufactured are not subject to cancellation or reduction.
Promotional Product Sample Guidelines
Our sample policy means you can "try it before you buy it." By sampling our products, such as promotional pens, advertising gifts and convention bags, you eliminate any concerns about quality, color and size.
About 98% of our products are available to ship to you without charge to locations within the Continental United States. The "other 2%" are products that, quite frankly, are too expensive for us to give away free but you can examine these items before you buy. If you provide us with a credit card we will ship the item(s) to you immediately and charge your card. Your card will be credited the amount of your sample(s) if you place an order or return the items within 30 days.
As a business to business company, we provide complimentary samples to our customers and prospective customers to assist in evaluating the quality of our custom promotional products. We are happy to work with our international friends. If requesting a sample for shipment outside the United States, please provide us with your UPS or FedEx International Shipping Account number to ensure that all applicable duties and freight are paid. A $10 foreign document charge may also apply. Due to the cost of doing business and our desire to keep prices low for our customers, we reserve the right to decline questionable/non-business sample requests and to limit the number of samples to 5.
Product purchase minimum quantities as well as discounts for larger quantities are listed in the product pricing tables throughout this web site.
PMS Numbers - Pantone Matching System®
The Pantone® company has evolved into being the standard for color communication in the printing industry. When a system such as The Pantone Matching System® is used, the imprint artist indicates the specific PMS number on the artwork so the printer uses the proper color of ink. Our printing facilities have the common Pantone Matching System® colors pre-mixed and ready to use. The Pantone Matching System® has numbers assigned to identify specific color swatches which appear in the color matching guide book.

A Word About Color Swatches
Please note that the color swatches shown on our site are general representations only. To see actual color, you are encouraged to request a sample prior to ordering.
Overrun/Underrun for Printed Promotional Products
MARCO makes every attempt to ship exact quantities. Due to our post-production quality control efforts and the high speed of the custom production process, there is the potential for up to 10% over/under runs. Over/under runs for plastic bags may vary from 10% - 25%. We will only invoice for the exact quantity shipped.
Production time refers to the time it will take us to custom produce the items for you. Weekends and legal holidays are not included in the calculation of the production time. Please note, that the production time starts when we receive your signed proof of the artwork. Days of production listed on the site are for 1 color and 1 location. We will contact you for multi-color/location orders. Time required for shipping is not included in the production time.
Artwork Guidelines For Printed Promotional Products
In most cases, art prep work is done at no charge. Production time will begin after approval of the art. Please contact us first if rush service is required.
