2.16 Castelli order details and guidelines that apply to your order. These terms may be as expressed in your published price list or be in addition to the conditions that you were aware of pre ordering.

2.16.1 Branding Castelli products requires digital artwork. Artwork is to be supplied in the forms outlined in our Artwork Guide found on our corporate website www.castellicorporate.co.uk. If amends or corrections are required, Castelli will charge (Including proofing) a min charge of £12.00 per amendment or instruction.

Free product branding templates for branding guides are available from the Castelli Corporate website, www.castellicorporategifts.co.uk.

If no position is stated for the branding, we shall brand where we consider it is to the best advantage at our absolute discretion. If a special position is required exact measurements must be supplied, if not, we cannot be held responsible. If no positional proof is required please state this on your purchase order detailing the position required including the official Castelli logo Identification number. Where there is a change of logo within one order we shall either split and charge in the quantities ordered for each individual logo or charge for each extra logo, whichever is the least expensive. Repeat orders using the branding dies used from prior years eventually wear out after heavy use, we may have to request new artwork for a replacement to be made. Replacement dies will be charged at normal rates. Customer blocking dies, will be held by Castelli for a maximum of 3 diary seasons post manufacture/usage.

Castelli are no longer accepting new customer supplied dies to ensure we maintain service levels and quality. For existing customer supplied dies we have used and have accepted in the past, we will look at the quality of the die and will recommend if this can be used again or requires replacing. If the die requires replacing Castelli will set, proof, catalogue and store the new branding die at our standard branding die rate, making use of our branding machinery that has been invested in providing excellent branding results and speed. Castelli regret that for new orders we will be unable to enter the order onto our production system unless a Castelli die is used. 

2.16.2 Where there is a change to an order previously confirmed, an Admin Order Change charge will be invoiced. An Admin Order Change per order per change will be applied if after an order is confirmed by Castelli, or a specification order change is submitted. All order changes are to be supplied in writing and agreed in writing by Castelli. If Castelli do not reissue an order acknowledgement or state in writing that the changes are accepted the changes have not been authorised and the order specification will remain unchanged.

2.16.3 Orders that are less than our published minimum quantities will incur extra charges. An order for stamped product that is fewer than the minimum indicated on the price list, will be charged at the lowest quantity price plus a minimum branding quantity charge, per logo design.

2.16.4 If you require advertising/brand advertising content there is a significant advantage in the supply of print ready artwork. Art that is supplied to our specification, that does not require alteration, will help your order to be processed in the most efficient manner. If you are unsure what print ready artwork we required a complete artwork specification is available from the Castelli Corporate website along with free page templates. If content is supplied that requires typesetting, we are a Mac based company throughout and although we can accept most forms of software applications, if supplying PC format please be aware there may be a cost incurred for reformatting. Charges are dependent on sight of files. Please contact our Artwork Department for all associated costs. All art/typesetting created by Castelli will be proofed. This service is included within the overall artwork charge unless otherwise specified. If you require a contract cromalin colour proof these are available POA. We do not accept printed content supplied.

2.16.5 Whilst every effort is made to supply the exact quantity of printed merchandise ordered, a 3-5% allowance must be made for over and under-runs, even if a customers order states that there are to be no quantity over or under runs. If an exact quantity of stock products is required a surcharge will be applied to allow for spoilage. It is impossible to produce an exact quantity for custom orders.

2.16.6 All orders will have an individual planned delivery date specified. Production time for all orders varies depending on product availability, production capacity and the size and complexity of the order. Planned production times will be advised to you. If you require your orders to arrive faster than is our normal stock delivery lead time. It may be possible to deliver orders under the normal stock production time on payment of an express charge. This charge can vary depending on the production capacity, size and complexity of the order. Please ensure you have received your order acknowledgment. It is your opportunity to ensure that your order details are correct and to approve its contents enabling the order to be processed. Castelli accept no responsibility, for the information detailed on your order acknowledgement or guarantee the reception of your order acknowledgement. Production, for any order placed with Castelli, begins once the receipt of complete order information and/or the approval of proofs. We shall do everything to meet agreed delivery dates but we will not be held responsible nor accept any liability should the date not be met.
