General Information

Most items are shipped within ten (10) business days of artwork or credit approval (if applicable). Production time does not include the day the order or approval is received. Campus Marketing Specialists is closed on the following days: January 1, Memorial Day, July 4, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, the day after Thanksgiving, and December 25-31. Production time will not be counted on these days as well.

Every attempt will be made to accommodate event deadline dates. On occasion, rush service may be necessary to meet your deadline and may incur additional charges.

We make every effort to ship exact quantity ordered. However, due to the nature of the screen printing process, overrun or underrun of 5-10% may occur.

All shipping and handling costs will be added to the final invoice. Items are shipped the most economical way to meet your deadline dates. Since we cannot guarantee an exact date of delivery for items shipped via Ground Service, it may be necessary to ship your items by air service to meet a specific date. Campus Marketing Specialists is not responsible for goods damaged or delayed in transit.

Your final, printed poster colors may appear slightly different that those represented in the catalog due to the nature of the printing process. Please note that photos may appear more pixilated on final posters; to reduce this, we ask that you submit sharp black and white photos with your order since they reproduce best. Photos sent to us will only be returned upon request at the time of order.

To expedite your order, logos and artwork may be emailed to us. We do not charge for basic artwork clean-up or for photo scans. While our font library is quite extensive and every effort is made to match your typeface exactly, on occasion it may be necessary to make a substitution. Additionally, artwork can be emailed to our Internet address, uploaded to our FTP site or .Mac account, or sent on 100 MB Iomega Zip disk or CD. While we currently support and prefer files saved in Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, or Adobe InDesign, we can also handle files exported to Illustrator or EPS format from QuarkXpress or Freehand. We do not accept any artwork done in Microsoft Publisher or Microsoft Word. We also do not accept any images downloaded from the web, as the quality of these images is not suitable for print reproduction. When sending artwork, please include all fonts used (screen and printer) or create font outlines. Any other files or placed images must also be included on the disk. Complete emailing instructions may be obtained by calling customer service at 1-800-795-4267.

Every attempt is made to present accurate product descriptions and colors; however, some actual colors may vary. Please inquire about seeing a product sample prior to placing an order since custom orders cannot be returned. We reserve the right to substitute like or similar products of equal or greater value at our discretion without notice.


  • Damage or errors in orders must be reported within five (5) business days of receipt of item; otherwise, orders are considered complete and correct.
