Our Sales Tax Policy
STG Print Shop, a division of Deluxe Small Business Sales, Inc., is required to collect and remit sales tax in all US jurisdictions that administer such tax.
For nonprofit or government entities, as well as reseller clients located in CO, HI, IL, NM, or WA, please email or fax a copy of your tax-exempts certificate to the attention of the Credit Department at 817-381-6346 or email@example.com.

If you have already placed an order with sales tax, you can request an adjustment by sending in your order number(s) with your documentation.
Color Accuracy and Hardcopy Proofs
STG Print Shop will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible but cannot exactly match color and density because of limitations in the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements.
The accuracy of each color reproduction (of the final printed product) is guaranteed to be within 90% of the final proof you approved, or STG Print Shop will reprint your job at no charge. Please note that STG Print Shop cannot guarantee color reproduction for your print-ready files if you: (a) did not request a hardcopy proof; or (b) purchased a product that does not feature a hardcopy proof option. Please note that we accept no responsibility for color variations between submitted print-ready images and the actual artwork or product they represent. For guidelines, visit our Help Center.
If you order a “Next Day Hardcopy” proof, your order must be placed, all files uploaded, and all files approved by 9 a.m. CT (12:00 p.m. ET) in order for us to promise a next day delivery. If you need to update your file, you may receive up to two additional rounds of your hardcopy proof. If need additional rounds of your hardcopy proof, there will be an extra charge.
You are responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and you must proofread all files carefully before submitting to STG Print Shop. As postal regulations are subject to change, you are also responsible for complying with current mailing restrictions for your layouts. Check with your local Post Office for current guidelines and restrictions. Please use our file preparation guidelines and product templates to assist you in creating print-ready files. We also offer design services for a fee.
You certify that you have the right to use the image(s) in your artwork files. DO NOT send any “one-of-kind” transparencies, prints or artwork. Although we take every precaution to safeguard your materials, we are NOT responsible for loss or damage of images or artwork.
Under these Terms and Conditions, you agree that you will NOT upload any artwork files consisting of the following material: any material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable law; and any material that could infringe rights of privacy, publicity, copyrights or other intellectual property rights without the permission of the owner of these rights and the persons who are shown in the material if applicable. STG Print Shop is unable to print sexually explicit materials, including photographic genitals, violently explicit materials, and speech promoting hate or violence.
Printing Turnaround Time
Printing turnaround time begins once your order has been placed and your print-ready files have been uploaded to your account, attached to your printing job, and approved for printing. If you ordered a next day hardcopy proof or standard hardcopy proof, printing turnaround time begins when we receive approval for your proof. Please note that if we are unable to print your files because they do not conform to our file requirements, your job status will return to “Need Artwork” and your printing turnaround time will be reset.
For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided, printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s) for your print job, not from when the order is first submitted.
If your job or proof is approved by 5:00 p.m. CST (4:00 p.m. EST), printing turnaround time begins that business day. For example, a job for three-day printing turnaround that you approved by 10:00 a.m. CST on Tuesday will be shipped out to you by end of business Friday. Please note that STG Print Shop offices are closed Saturdays, Sundays and major holidays. As a result, these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time. In addition, printing turnaround time does not include shipping transit time, and you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you selected.
Shipping and Arrival Times
Shipping transit times vary, and STG Print Shop assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive a job on time. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc. STG Print Shop is not responsible for delays due to improperly prepared files.
Target arrival dates are calculated by adding the printing turnaround time to the shipping transit time. If you are requesting a hardcopy proof, we already factor in additional time to reach your target date. For a standard hardcopy proof, expect approximately six business days to receive and approve your proof. For a next day hardcopy proof, expect two business days. Both printing and shipping times are based on business days only and do not include weekends or holidays. For example, a product with a printing turnaround time of two business days and a shipping method of 2nd Day Air would have a target arrival date four business days after your files have been received by us. The cut off time for accepting files is 6:00 p.m. PST (9:00 p.m. EST). If your files are in by that time, we will commit to printing and shipping your product within the selected timeframe.
You agree that shipping terms for all STG Print Shop products are shipped “Freight On Board Shipping Point” or “F.O.B. Shipping Point” – title and risk of loss transfers to you at time of shipment or pickup.
Pick-up orders will be held for 30 days at our facility. After 30 days, we will recycle your order.

STG Print Shop will print your order once your list is processed. We may print an amount over and above the number of viable addresses in your mailing list, as well as a small quantity of print overs. Overs are not refunded and will be automatically mailed to your billing address. If you would like them shipped to a different address than your billing address, please post a note or call customer service to inform them of this change. All orders that fit in one box will be shipped to you at no additional charge. If there are additional overs, there will be a $20 handling fee plus the UPS shipping fee per additional box. Additional shipping for the overages will be billed to the credit card on file with your order.
Only postage is refundable upon request for any quantity from your mailing services job that did not mail due to invalid addresses in your mail list, or if the mail list consisted of fewer addresses than the quantity ordered. The minimum mailing quantity must be met before postage is refunded.
