We want you to be completely satisfied with your purchase. If you find that you need to return an item, please review the complete details of our Return Policy below to determine if any special return conditions apply.
Items may be returned within 30 days after the ship date for store credit or a refund. If you would like to replace the item you have returned, please request store credit and place a new order once store credit is issued.
Exchange and return policy does not apply to custom flag orders; once production has started custom flag orders are no longer refundable or exchangeable.
With such variation in degrees of usage, constantly changing weather patterns, and different climate conditions where displayed, it is not easily measured how long a flag will last. The US Government generally expects a polyester, nylon or cotton flag to last approximately 90 days based on daily usage from sunrise to sunset. Experience has shown that for some, a flag flown 24 hours a day will last considerably shorter than one flown only during daylight.
It's unfortunate that flags can't last forever. Exposure is harsh, but a little TLC can increase the life of your flag. Flags Importer is a wholesaler, and we offer quantity discounts. This allows customers to replace their flags 2-3 times a year without reordering.
While most items are returnable, they are subject to the following guidelines:
Proper Conditions for Return & Credit
Returned merchandise must be in new condition with its original packing and accessories intact.
Returned merchandise must be received within 30 days of ship date.
Returns must be pre-authorized by representative of Flags Importer.
Please note: We regret that Flags Importer cannot cover the cost of shipping for product returns, nor reimburse original shipping paid for product returns.
30-Day Return Policy does not apply to pick-up orders, custom orders, international orders or repeat wholesale customers.
Return shipping cost for refused shipments will be deducted from the order refund unless prior authorization is granted.
Flags Importer will not refund shipping for orders that are cancelled after confirmation. All returns, that are not damaged, will be subjected to a 20% restocking fee. International shipments that are refused will be treated as abandoned and will not be refunded.
Please open and inspect your parcels within a timely manner.
Items eligible for return must be returned within 30 days from date of shipping.
If you would like make an exchange or return for store credit, please initiate the Return Request for your order. Once your return has been received and inspected, a store credit will be issued. At this time, our staff can ship the requested exchanged item, or the store credit can be used to place a new order at your convenience.
Because of security concerns, we cannot combine store credit across multiple accounts.
