General Information

Standard production time varies depending upon item and imprinting method. Normal production time is 8 to 10 working days. Production time does not include day order is received; production time will begin after receipt of usable art. Production time starts after final proof approval.

MORCO offers a 3 and 5 day Rush Service on many of our items (as indicated at each item). RUSH SERVICE must be clearly marked (as well as the Event Date) on the Purchase Order and be pre-approved by MORCO. Rush Service availability is based upon product inventory, imprint method, and imprint complexity.

A Rush Charge of 15% could be assessed depending on workload, delivery time, order requirements, if non-premium ship method is used, etc. If a Rush Charge is required, MORCO will quote upon receipt of inquiry/order.

Cancellations or Changes to Orders

A minimum of $40.00(G) charge will be assessed on all orders cancelled 24 hours after receipt by MORCO. Actual cost will be based on the value of the work completed at the notice of cancellation. All cancellations and any changes to an order must be submitted in writing.

Order Setups

See individual product listings. Setups are per imprint color per location. 

Reorder Setups

Reorder Set-up is for the printer putting the plate/screen on the press, positioning the copy, mixing the ink, running a test piece and to get the printing approved/inspected before the production run.

Reorders must specify previous invoice number, date, PO number, item number, item color, and imprint color. Reorder set-up must be for EXACTLY the same copy – no changes. Any copy or product change does not qualify for a Reorder Set Up. Orders more than 2 years old will require a Regular Set-up.

Less Than Minimum

Absolute minimum for each item is ½ the minimum quantity list in catalog under each item (except 820, 821, 823). Absolute minimum for these is 200 pieces.

LTM charge is the same as an item’s regular Set Up charge based on the printing method. Note: Clipboards with copy on clip and board will incur a LTM charge for the clip and board imprint per color per side.

Change of Copy

Is the same as an item’s regular Set Up charge based on the printing method. Absolute minimum quantity still applies (see above).


Overruns and Underruns

Morco reserves the right to overship or undership up to 5% and bill accordingly. Orders requesting “No Overruns” are subject to undershipment of up to 5%. Orders requesting “Exact Quantity”, will incur a $35.00(G) per order handling charge.

3.  Imprint Method. Factory reserves the right to choose the method of imprinting best suited to the item and the art.

4.  Light imprint on dark surfaces or large reverse areas. When a light color imprint is requested on a dark surface or when a large reverse area is needed, it is difficult to get the coverage on an item that is normally printed via letterpress. The screen printing process is best for these instances. When silk screen printing an item normally printed via letterpress printing, add the following per color:
a.    Additional Setup: $15.00(G)
b.    Additional per piece: $.30(G)
