PayPal Users

Please ensure your shipping address is correct and up-to-date before you initiate a payment. This will ensure packages do not get returned to us due to old addresses. Returned items that are re-shipped will incurr a return and re-ship charge to the customer, before the package is re-sent to you. (for example, if original shipping cost was $10, an additional $20 would be required to re-ship the product that was returned). The correct shipping address is the responsibility of the customer as are other charges BDesigns has to pay to re-ship due to an incorrect address.

Custom Orders

Custom orders require a minimum deposit of 40% before order is processed (you can make a complete payment as well).

Canadian Taxation

In HST participating Provinces of British Columbia, New Brunswick, Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia and Ontario, the appropriate HST will be added to your order. Residents of Alberta, Nunavut, Northwest Territories or the Yukon will have 5% GST added to their orders. For residents of Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Saskatchewan, the buyers are expected to remit the tax on their out-of-province purchases.

Note To All Customers Outside Canada

Customers outside Canada may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance are your responsibilty and are borne by you. We have no control over these charges and can't predict what they might be. Customs can be different from country to country so you should contact your local customs office for further information.

Customs authorities require us to state the value of the item in the paperwork. Generally, customs forms for international packages will list the value of your order's contents by the price that you paid, excluding shipping costs.

PayPal "Add To Shopping Cart" Buttons

With some products you will see multiple "Shopping Cart" buttons with different Country symbols beside them. This is due to variable shipping costs between Domestic and International destinations. At BDesigns, we don't feel it is fair to charge one averaged higher shipping rate to cover all countries, just to make it easy for ourselves. You pay fair shipping and handling charges for Canadian, USA and International destinations. If you hold your mouse pointer over the Country symbols (try it below), they will tell you the shipping method. Just click on the "Shopping Cart" button beside your Country symbol to purchase the product. If there are no symbols, that means the product ships Lettermail. The symbols you will see are;

Return Policy

Decals

Please ensure you are ordering the correct decals for your machine! Due to the low volume demand for model specific decals and adhesive shelf life, BDesigns does not generally stock decals. Decals are produced on a one-by-one basis. Due to these conditions, we will accept returns on decals ordered in error, but a 20% re-stocking fee will apply. Items must be returned within 30 days in undamaged condition, and your money (less shipping and re-stocking charges) will be refunded.

If you are not happy with the quality or accuracy of your purchase, simply return the purchased items, in undamaged condition, and your money (including shipping charges) will be fully refunded.

All Other Product

Please ensure you are ordering the correct product for your machine! Any items ordered in error must be returned within 30 days in undamaged condition, and your money (less shipping charges) will be refunded. If you are not happy with the quality of your purchase, simply return the purchased items, in undamaged condition, and your money (including shipping charges) will be fully refunded.

Shipping

We ship worldwide. Costs can vary depending on where you live, what level of service and how much value your order is. Some shipping services and insurance coverages are not available to all International destinations. I cases like this, an alternate method will be chosen to ensure your package arrives as cost effectively as possible. Generally we ship using Canada Post. We also will ship FedEx at your request.

Due to complaints of outrageous handling and brokerage fees charged by UPS when crossing the border into the United States (or from United States into Canada for that matter) we only use the Canada Post/USPS delivery system as our default cross-border shipping carrier. We WILL NOT ship any product using UPS.

In most cases we do NOT ship decals rolled in a tube as some other companies do. Although slightly more cost for shipping, we prefer to ship our product flat and protected from bending. Have you ever tried to install a curled decal? It is not very easy. Decal material can also ripple and buckle when flattening the decals out, after being rolled for even a moderate amount of time. If we do have to ship decals in a box, it is usually International shipments and due to decal length. This is done to keep some shipping costs down where possible. If we do ship decals in a box, they are not rolled tight, but set into a large curved position to prevent permanent curling.

Due to the low volume demand for model specific decals and adhesive shelf life, BDesigns does not generally stock low volume decals or low volume vinyl material. This ensures you get decals that are "fresh" and us not having to stock materials that don't sell. Because of this, orders generally take from two days to one week to process after payment has cleared, before they ship.
