Additional Information & Charges
How are taxes collected?
 

We collect sales tax on orders shipping to any state where Image Award Ribbons has physical presence or is otherwise required to collect tax by law. We will automatically add the appropriate estimated sales tax if your delivery location is in any of the states listed on our web site. Please visit www.imageawardribbons.com/salestax for an up to date list of states where we are required to charge sales tax.

We are required to collect sales tax on the value of the merchandise and other charges sold to you, based on your order's "ship to" address, wherever Image Award Ribbons has an established business presence. Some states assess sales tax on shipping and handling charges as well.

Image Award Ribbons is not required to and does not collect sales tax in all states. However, for other states imposing sales tax, your purchase may subject to state use tax unless it is specifically exempt from taxation. Your purchase is not exempt merely because it is made over the Internet, by catalog or other remote means. You are still responsible for tax on your purchase. Most states require purchasers to file a use tax return to report any purchase that was not taxed, and pay the sales tax on the purchase directly to the taxing authority. Details of how to report and pay use tax to your state may be found at your state taxing authority's website.

If your organization is exempt from sales tax, you must supply us with a current and valid copy of your sales tax exemption certificate at the time your order is placed. We are unable to refund or credit sales tax once tax is reported to your state’s taxing authorities.

State sales and other tax rates are subject to change at any time.

PMS Match
  If PMS colors are required, please specify them upon ordering or requesting quotes. Although we cannot match PMS colors, we will come as close as possible. We print in CMYK and use the Solid Coated and Uncoated PMS Plus Series Formula Guide as a reference. We cannot match PMS colors for hot stamped products.

If your order calls for more than 6 place changes or line changes:
