Terms and Conditions
You can cancel an order only before it has entered production. Orders go into production VERY quickly so please don't wait. You must CALL to cancel an order. BoatDecals.biz reserves the right to cancel an order for any reason.
We want you to be happy with your product, however please inspect your item immediately upon delivery and report any issues within 3 business days. We will not issue refunds or accept returns for custom items. We produce your order based on the information located on your receipt. Questions or comments about your design need to be left in the comments field at checkout. We will always contact you before production if we do not understand your comment.
Products which have been opened or partially used such as application fluid cannot be returned.
Any returns authorized by BoatDecals.biz must be shipped back at the buyers expense.
Colors represented on the website are visual representations of vinyl colors. The color you receive will likely not match the way your screen shows it online. Computer monitors do not reproduce exact match to colors. If you must see the exact color you are purchasing please request a free sample. We will not replace orders based on improper color selection and variations from what you saw on your screen.
Doming can cause an optical illusion in various colors such as white. When ordering domed lettering, especially white please be aware a pure white will often take on the tint of the color next to it. It may also appear to be an off white or egg shell white. This becomes much more visible against a white boat surface. We cannot replace lettering based on doming effects such as this.
We use the design preview you generated while designing your lettering to use as a reference. This design is your proof. Errors, omissions, or spelling mistakes are not our responsibility. We produce what you designed. If we catch spelling mistakes before production we will verify with you if this was intentional or not and then proceed. Please be sure to review the color policy above how we match colors. We cannot replace lettering that included errors, omissions, or spelling mistakes.
During designing there is a ruler on the bottom and right side illustrating how we measure sizes. The size is the OVERALL size, not the character height. If you need your capital letters to be a specific height please specify this during checkout. Most likely we will have to adjust the price of your graphic as this changes the size significantly.
Delivery and Shipping
You order will be shipped via USPS or UPS. We have no control on the care of your item once it has left our facility. Unfortunately packages do get lost or damaged from time to time. We will do our best to get the situation solved for you to your satisfaction.
Ultimately we cannot be responsible for shipping delays or errors by the
shipping company you select. However, it is our best intention to get you

by case basis. If your package is lost we'll replace it then deal with
the shipping company directly. We cannot be held responsible for incorrect
addresses, delivered packages being failed to be picked up, or improperly forwarded

your choose USPS Express Mail as this is a guaranteed shipping method.
Please alert us of your in hands requirements and we'll try to ship on
time or advise you otherwise. Please consider Priority mail can in some
cases take 5 days to be delivered to some parts of the US.
There is a wide range of delivery times when shipping internationally. We have seen packages travelling to locations like Australia take upwards of 3 weeks to be delivered. This is considered normal. We will not consider an international package lost unless it has not be delivered 30 days after shipping. We reserve the right to cancel any order which may be deemed unshippable by international carriers. Please note specifically we have box size restrictions for various countries. Boxes travelling to Australia cannot exceed 42" tall. Should your order exceed the box size we will attempt to alert you of this and either provide a refund or arrive at a smaller size.

We do not have any control over the fees imposed by your country. It is our policy to declare the full value of the items purchased on our customs declaration forms.
Should a package be returned to us due to an incorrect address or location specific delivery exception (not otherwise the fault of the shipping company) it will be the customers responsibility to pay to have the item reshipped. If the order qualified for free shipping then the standard shipping fee will be charged. We will not be able to resend the item until it arrives back at our facility.

Lettering should never be installed when the outside ambient temperature is below 50°F (10°C). If the surface is too hot to touch, it is too hot to install vinyl lettering also. This generally indicates in excess of 90°F.
Surface Damage Policy
BoatDecals.biz assumes no responsibility for surface damage caused by our graphics during installation, removal, or the duration of time applied.
New Paint Policy
Any graphics including domed and vinyl lettering should not be applied to a freshly painted surface. You must wait at least 30 days regardless of what your body shop advises before applying graphics. It is critical to follow these guidelines. Fresh paint will go through an out gas period which will cause the vinyl adhesive to prematurely release; this is particularly an issue with domed lettering. Fresh paint can also be easily damaged by vinyl adhesive. Should you 'pull' on your surface by accident while applying your graphic it is highly likely you will lift the fresh paint off!
Registration Numbers, Compliant Lettering, and Local Laws
BoatDecals.biz provides guidelines for designing DOT and Boat Registration numbers in accordance with local laws. We frequently see orders which are outside of our guidelines and blatantly violate local laws. Firstly, it is your responsibility to create compliant lettering with your local laws. We are not responsible for any citations or violations as a result of your design using our online tools or personal advisement. BoatDecals.biz will not be liable for any fines or penalties incurred as a result of the vinyl lettering designed. You are creating custom lettering at your own risk.
