With today’s uncertainty surrounding the execution of events, Gold Bond aims to partner with our clients by offering a layaway program. If your client has a postponed event, Gold Bond will produce all goods requested and invoice for the products produced as normal. Gold Bond will then give you the option to store up to 3 months from standard production time frame at no additional cost to you. A separate invoice for the shipping will be sent after you release the order. If your client has decided to drop ship to various individuals and/or locations within this 3-month time frame please call to confirm the costs and time associated with repackaging the order in question. We aim to execute on this as quickly as possible but will need to work through each scenario on a case by case basis to ensure quality execution.

Orders less than catalog minimum quantity will incur a $50.00 (G) charge where applicable per product specifications.
Orders requiring a multi-color imprint of three colors or more that include a running charge will require a minimum quantity of 500 pieces. Additional lead-time may be required.
