READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE CAREFULLY. BY ORDERING PRODUCTS AND/OR INSTALLATION SERVICES FROM STRETCHSHAPES.NET LLC, YOU ACCEPT AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE.
The terms “we”, “us”, and “Seller” as used herein refer to Stretchshapes.net LLC. The terms “you” and “Purchaser” refer to the persons or entities whose names appear on the applicable invoice or purchase order to which these Terms and Conditions of Sale apply. Seller and Purchaser are sometimes referred to collectively herein as the “Parties”; and each as a “Party”.
Production does not begin until payment is made in full or an invoice or purchase order containing specific payment terms is issued for Net terms clients. For Net terms clients, unless a specific payment due date is specified on the applicable invoice or purchase order, the period for payment begins on the day your order is placed, regardless of the production time. For example, if a purchase order specifying net 30 as the payment terms is submitted on January 1st, the balance will be due on January 30th.
We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express through Stripe. We also accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express, Apple Pay and ACH bank transfer through our Intuit payment processors. We also accept Pay Pal, Amazon Pay checks, money orders, cashier’s checks and wire transfers.
Late payments are subject to a late fee of one-half percent (½%) for every 30 days late. In addition, rush fees may need to be applied if a payment is past due and the product(s) are needed on a specific date that does not allow our production team the required time to complete the project. In addition, if you fail to make any payment as and when due, you agree to pay any costs of collection, including reasonable attorney fees, which may be incurred by us. We may recover those amounts by any means permitted by law.
If an order is cancelled after production has commenced, you agree to pay a percentage of the purchase price that is proportionate to where the order has progressed in the production process, as determined by Seller in the exercise of its good-faith discretion and professional judgment.
- We accept returns within 15 days of delivery for either exchange or store credit.
- We only accept returns of stock products made in black or white. Stock products are defined as non custom products that can be added to cart. Customized orders and stock products made from color fabric are all final sale and nonreturnable.
- We do not pay return shipping unless merchandise is defective.
- Items must be in like new or unused condition to be eligible for return; and a restocking fee of 15% will apply.
- Returns must have an RMA # (Return Merchandise Authorization Number).
- Call or email for your RMA #. Once issued, it is valid for 10 business days.
- Refunds, exchanges, or store credits will be given once our staff has had a chance to inspect returned merchandise.
If your order includes installation services, we will send you a questionnaire prior to the install so you can provide us with all of the relevant details about the install. You must provide complete answers on the questionnaire. If any information is inaccurate or incomplete and results in additional installation time or work, you may be required to pay a change order fee. All inquiries about installation services which are separate and apart from product orders must go through your Stretch Shapes Relationship Manager. Our installation teams are insured and bonded as part of a separate organization.
Shipping; Risk of Loss
Unless otherwise provided in the applicable invoice or purchase order, or agreed in writing by the Parties, delivery is FOB Seller’s place of business (FOB the seller’s location means that as soon as the shipment of goods leaves the seller’s warehouse, the seller records the sale as complete. The buyer owns the product en route to its warehouse and must pay any delivery charges). A tracking number will be sent to the email associated with the applicable invoice or purchase order on the day the goods are due to ship. Seller will not be responsible or liable for any shipping delays or any damage to the product(s) that occurs while being shipped.Â If damage occurs en route, you agree to pursue redress only through the carrier or carriers charged with delivery. Purchaser will pay shipping charges as part of the purchase price to Seller, who will pay the carrier charged with delivery.
FedEx & UPS Ground Shipping; Disclaimer
We recommend clients forgo FedEx Ground for time-critical orders. Ground does not technically have a guarantee. We recommend using either UPS Overnight or 2 Day services when a delivery guarantee is required. Unless otherwise provided in the applicable invoice or purchase order, or agreed in writing by the Parties, delivery is FOB Seller’s place of business (FOB the seller’s location means that as soon as the shipment of goods leaves the seller’s warehouse, the seller records the sale as complete. The buyer owns the product en route to its warehouse and must pay any delivery charges).
Dispatch and Lead Times
If an item is listed as in stock and the order is received by noon PST (3 p.m. EST), it will usually ship the same day (orders may ship the following business day due to processing and packing). If an item is listed with a manufacturing lead time, it will ship according to the lead time. For expedited shipping, please see our Rush Dispatch Page for details, or ask your Relationship Manager.
Production of custom items requiring artwork approval will not commence until you have approved the artwork proof in writing. If payment is made and artwork is approved by 10 a.m. PST (1 p.m. EST), production will commence on the same day.
ORDERS ARE SHIPPED COMPLETE: If an item with a lead time is ordered with an in stock item, the entire order will be delayed to dispatch according to the time table of the item with lead time.
We will not be held liable for any failure or delay in performance to the extent that the failure or delay is proximately caused by forces beyond our reasonable control, including, without limitation, natural disasters, war, imposition of government restrictions, and failure of suppliers, subcontractors, and carriers.
Orders shipped outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches the recipient’s country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be fulfilled by the recipient.
Customs policies vary widely; you should contact your local customs office for more information. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond our original delivery estimates.
Flame Retardant Terms
Most of Stretch Shapes products are made from IFR Stretch Fabric. IFR Stretch Fabric is inherently flame retardant (IFR) and passes NFPA 701 Small Scale, CSFM Title 19 and ASTM E84 standards that cover nearly all states including CA and NY.
Although Most Stretch Shapes Pantone matches are very accurate, due to the nature of stretch fabric, slight variance may occur. Stretch Shapes does our best to provide exceptional matching, however, we cannot be held responsible for such variance.
If you wish to change the delivery schedule, features, scope, or any other material term of sale (including without limitation the terms or schedule for any installation), you must contact us via phone or email to request a change order (“Change Order”) referencing the applicable invoice(s) or purchase order(s) and setting forth the specific changes requested. The Change Order will amend the terms of the applicable invoice(s) or purchase order(s) pursuant to its terms on execution by both Parties. The Parties may informally agree to changes or modifications, but the Parties agree that such changes will not be enforceable unless they are recorded in a written Change Order signed by both Parties. You acknowledge and agree that any changes will be subject to additional cost.
Both standardized products and custom products are warranted against manufacturer defect for up to one (1) year from the date of delivery; provided, however, that only standardized products are returnable in accordance with our return policy. Notwithstanding the foregoing, our products are not covered under any warranty if any of the following occurs:
- Punctures introduced to the material through installation, handling, or other use

Other than as set forth above, our products are not subject to any other warranty whatsoever unless otherwise agreed in writing.
