Holiday Order Deadlines 2013

THE CLOCK IS TICKING!

All orders placed by 11:59pm EST on their respective deadlines are expected to be delivered by December 23rd.

Please help ensure that everyone has a happy and stress-free holiday by getting your orders in as soon as possible rather than waiting until the cut-off.  Deadlines are to ensure that last-minute additions are able to get in.  Our little elves will be working away in the shop to hand-make each and every one of your albums, so please give them as much time as possible to work their magic for you!

SPECIAL NOTE FOR JANUARY BRIDAL SHOW ORDERS:

Our first priority is getting your client orders out for the holidays, and then sample albums for January shows.  Please leave a note at the end of your sample order with the date of your show and we’ll do everything we can to meet that expectation.  Sample orders are not holiday orders.

SELDEX USERS: Orders must be placed by the December 2nd deadline as Seldex closes for holiday break until mid-January and will not be able to start filling late orders until their return.

WE’RE SO THANKFUL WE HAVE SUCH AMAZING FINAONS TO WORK WITH!  WE WISH YOU ALL THE BEST FOR THIS HOLIDAY SEASON AND LOOK FORWARD TO BIG BIG THINGS IN 2014!!!

Now that you’ve got that down, just a few tips for making sure your holiday season is stress free! (at least when it comes to your albums).

1. Get your orders in BEFORE THE DEADLINE. This will ensure that your album gets all the TLC it needs. We’ve pushed the deadlines to the max so that people with emergencies and oversights aren’t left out in the cold.  Please get your orders in as early as possible in order to avoid problems at this busiest time of year.

2. Don’t rush. Take your time on each order and triple check every detail before submitting it. Make sure to carefully VIEW YOUR FILES AT 100% BEFORE UPLOADING to find any small mistakes that can be overlooked when you are zoomed out like misplaced/misaligned strokes, pixelated/grainy areas or misspelled text.

3. If you have a number of items to order for multiple clients, we advise that you PLACE SEPARATE ORDERS for each client. We will NOT separate and ship individual items from orders.

4. DROP SHIP YOUR ALBUMS directly to your clients. I know that some of you want to have control and inspect the album first and maybe hand-deliver it, but we cannot guarantee your order for delivery any sooner than December 24th.  Your clients will be much happier having their album in their hands to share with family and friends over the holiday than they would be if you inspected the album, realized you spelled the groom’s name “Brain” in the order form and didn’t want to deliver the album to them because of the mistake.  Changes can be addressed after the holidays. Besides, you deserve to have a life too!

5. Kick-back and KEEP THE FAITH! During the holiday season we are not able to provide individual order statuses or estimates on shipment dates. “Delivery by December 24th” means delivery by December 24th. We can not take requests for orders to be delivered on December 18th, 21st or any other date.  Please be patient and know that if you’ve followed these steps, you should be in for a very happy new year filled with very happy clients!  BRING ON THE REFERRALS!!!

NOW GET OUT THERE AND GET THAT HALLOWEEN CANDY!!!!

Holiday Ordering Tips

The Holidays are fast approaching, but don’t let stress turn you into a Grinch. Finao’s got you covered with these easy tips that will ensure you’re sipping nogg in front of the Yule Log before you can say “Feliz Christmahanukwanzaakah”.

1. Get your orders in BEFORE THE DEADLINE. This will ensure that your album gets all the TLC it needs. Please see the News Section on Finao’s website for dates.

2. Don’t rush. Take your time on each order and triple check every detail before submitting it. Make sure to carefully VIEW YOUR FILES AT 100% BEFORE UPLOADING to find any small mistakes that can be overlooked when you are zoomed out like misplaced/misaligned strokes and pixelated/grainy areas.

3. If you have a number of items to order for multiple clients, we advise that you PLACE SEPARATE ORDERS for each client. The cost of shipping is mainly calculated by weight, so the total cost shouldn’t be drastically different.

4. DROP SHIP YOUR ALBUMS directly to your clients. I know that some of you want to have control and inspect the album first and maybe hand-deliver it, but we cannot guarantee your order for delivery any sooner than December 24th.  Your clients will be much happier having their album in their hands to share with family and friends over the holiday than they would be if you inspected the album, realized you spelled the groom’s name “Brain” in the order form and didn’t want to deliver the album to them because of the mistake.  Changes can be addressed after the holidays. Besides, you deserve to have a life too!

5. Kick-back and KEEP THE FAITH! During the holiday festivities we are not able to provide individual order statuses or estimates on shipment dates. Please be patient and know that if you’ve followed these steps, you should be in for a very happy new year filled with very happy clients!  BRING ON THE REFERRALS!!!

Here’s to 2011!!
