The digitizing fee is a one time free of $75.00 to create your patch. We will provide you with a digital draft of your patch design within 48 hours (business days, not including weekends or holidays) of your paid order. We will email you the digital draft of your patch design, and we require your approval of the digital draft within 48 hours. Failure to respond to our emails within 48 hours will result in a delay in your patch order. Any modifications to the digital draft image design will result in a delay of your order. It is the customers responsibility to return emails with approval of the patch design so that we can put the patches into production.
All items are shipped via USPS First class mail with a tracking number.
Your order will be completed and shipped from our premises within 7-14 business days (business days are Monday-Friday, not including weekends or holidays, both USA holidays and Canadian holidays count) of receipt of your order. Although actual shipping times may vary, all items will be shipped via USPS first class Mail with a tracking number. According to USPS, your items should be delivered in 1-4 days once received in their shipping facilities, but USPS does not offer a guaranteed time. The Company is not responsable for the transit time once the order leaves our facility - we provide you with a tracking number for each and every order. If the USPS is slow, there is nothing we can do about that, your order will arrive to you by the USPS.
Regular shipping overseas can take 4-6 weeks for your items to arrive via USPS.
Shipping to APO’s, shipping to APO boxes is NOT guaranteed in any way. We cannot guarantee any items that are shipped into a war zone. We normally suggest sending your patches to your billing address and then have them shipped to you. There are no tracking numbers available for shipping to APO’s and any war zone and we can't put insurance on any order going to an APO box or to any war zone. Shipping to an APO can take 4-6 weeks or longer. We will ship the products via USPS mail to get it to the military mail, but after that the USPS does not track any shipments. Shipping is considered "delivered" when it is in the hands of the military mail service. There will be no refunds for orders shipped to APO's or any other military mail.
Returns, Refunds and Exchanges Policy
How To Return An Item
Your item must be in its original unused condition to be returned. You must return the item within 30 days of your purchase.
1. Please fill out the returns form in "your account" to request a return authorization.
2. Once authorized, you can return the items to: OML Patches 152 Baldoon Road, Chatham, Ontario Canada, N7L 1E1.
3. Include in your package a signed letter stating the reason for your return and the original receipt.
Items can not be returned if they are custom designed. Custom patches with a digitizing fee with the order cannot be returned to the Company. Any custom lettering only patches, patches with added custom lettering, custom fonts or different languages will not be returned or refunded. Patches that have custom lettering, custom colors or custom shapes cannot be returned for a refund, unless there is a spelling error on the patches made by the Company. The customer is required to email a picture of the defective patches for our records.
Digitizing Fee will not be refunded, because the creation of the patch has already been completed. If you ordered your custom patches on sale with a minimum order of 10 patches and free digitizing, then we will subtract the digitizing fee of $75.00 from your total order - we have spent hours and hours creating your custom digitized patches and all patch designs require approval before we produce the patches. You will have approved the patch stitch design, and therefore approved the patch design.
All products that require digitizing or the creation of the patch design in stitches is non-refundable including but not limited to all of the Sample Patch products in different sizes - the feel of $50.00, $55.00 and $60.00 is non refundable - we will provide you a digital copy of your design for approval, and any delays in the customer's approval will result in a delay with your order. It is the customer's responsibility to provide approval for the design, as we will not be stitching out any custom order without approval. Once we have begun working on your design, there is no refund for digitizing fees, and the patch that is included in the fee is considered free, therefore there are no refunds or returns on any Sample Patch products. We have worked on the design of the patch, so the standard digitiizing fee of $75.00 will be deducted, therefore leaving no refund.
2D PVC Vinyl patches: each PVC Vinyl patch on the site is created from a design uploaded by the customer. We do not change or alter your design in any way, the design is your creation, other than to add space for the merrowing of the patch, normally a thin black border. For that reason, we do not refund any PVC custom patches. When you are placing your order, you have agreed to the fact that the design you uploaded is the design that we use for the patches. We do not provide any graphic design services and we do not change your design in any way, and therefore your design will not be refunded.
Printed custom patches: there will be no refund of the printed custom patches. We create the patch from your design, we do not offer design services for these patches and you are required to submit a final design for the printed custom patches. We do not alter your design in any way other than adding a stroke for a merrowed border to facilitate merrowing of the patch. If you submit a small or large final design, we will have to resize the design to accommodate the printed custom patch size that you have purchased. If you do not submit the final design for the printed custom patch there may be some loss of detail or clarity with enlarging the design. You are required to agree with the terms and conditions when you purchase the printed custom patch - you are agreeing that you have submitted the final design and no alterations will be made by the Company. Please take the time to finalize your design with the correct shape and size before submitting your design. Again, there are no refunds for any custom printed patches, the design has been created by you.
Merchandise that has been worn, used, or altered in any way will not be accepted for return or exchange.
All items are subject to a 10% restocking fee, this will be deducted from your refund. We also do not refund the original shipping and handling that you paid on the order.
We will not sell, share, or rent your personal information to any third party or use your e-mail address for unsolicited mail. Any emails sent by this Company will only be in connection with the provision of agreed services and products.
