What are Set-up, Run Charges, and Additional Charges?
Set-up: Set-up charges are different for every item and can be different for each imprint method. Set-ups are required by the factory to set-up the machinery and materials needed to personalize products with your logo, artwork and/or message. For example the set-up charge is used to create silk screens, tapes, dies and molds. Each product and/or imprinting method requires a different set-up process. The set-up charge is not based on the quantity ordered. A setup is the same whether the order is 20 pieces or 20000 pieces. The fee is applied per imprint color and imprint location. Some products may require you to order a specific amount for a particular imprint method.
Run Charge: Run charges are also different for every item and can be different for each imprint method. They are additional charges necessary to complete the imprinting of your items. Run charges, for example are added for secondary locations and/or colors. They can also be packaging charges or other options that are not included in the base price of the product.
Additional Charges: Additional Charges are things such as packaging fees, additional product accessories and options.
