Product, Shipping and Return Policy

Product Policies

Product variance:

Foam is made under varied environmental and process conditions. As a result, there will always be slight deviations on the foam’s color and texture from insert to insert. We strive to send the most consistent products, but we reserve the right to not offer refunds/exchanges due to color or texture variations.


Manufacturing tolerances and accuracy:

Our foam thickness tolerance is ±10% of nominal material thickness. So for ½” thick foam, it can be between .450 to .550 inches thick

Product tolerance: Our laser systems are accurate to ±.020” not including the errors associated with digitize the paper traces. Those errors are a direct function of the quality of the customer provided drawings


Manufacturing lead time:

For orders under $300 dollars, 90% of our orders are shipped out within 2 business days of order confirmation. This is by no means a guarantee on manufacturing lead time. If there will be any delays in manufacturing, we always inform our customers in a prompt fashion.


For ultra time sensitive projects, we offer a rush order service. Please view the content below on rush orders.

For orders over $300, leadtimes are calculated on a case-by-base basis. If you have any questions on large order lead times, please reach out to us.
