Ordering Information and Terms

Please use one of the following options for placing an order:

1. Use the online order form (click here) --- Please fill in all fields, including item numbers and quantities.  You may still want to call or email us, just to be sure we received the order - especially if it's a RUSH order.
2. Fax us your order... (847)470-0857 -- List the items you would like and the appropriate imprint information.  Here's an order form you can print out (pdf - 72 kb), which will ensure you include all the necessary information.
3. e-mail us... order@classicdesignawards(dot)com   -- Just be sure to let us know all item numbers and appropriate imprint instructions. You can include Word documents or artwork files as explained under the Imprint Information page.
4. CALL US... at (847)470-0855 -- This is not automated... you will speak to an actual person unless it is after hours or we are in a peak season.  Sorry, we can't accept engraving instructions over the phone, so you'll still have to e-mail or fax those over to us.


Orders go into production very quickly.  If you have any changes, please call immediately so we can put the order on hold.  Changes must then be submitted in writing via email or fax.  We will do what we can to avoid additional charges, however, once an item is imprinted, customer is responsible for additional charges of material, imprinting and/or labor.  CANCELLATIONS, whether emailed, faxed or phoned in, must be confirmed or acknowledged by Customer Service.  There is a $15.00 cancellation fee, plus all costs incurred prior to that point.  This may include any of the following: Shipping charges on merchandise brought in for the job; re-stocking fees charged by our suppliers; engraving or other imprinting charges already completed; paper proofs, drawings or other design work; material(s) that has been marked, drilled, cut, or otherwise modified in such a way as it can not be reused; or any other labor put forth on the job.

Production Time, Proofs & Shipping Information

  • Production time, depending on merchandise, is 5-10 days after receipt of your order AND approval of all artwork & pricing.  Every attempt is made to have your order completed "when you need it", but production times may vary throughout the year.

  • Rush orders are welcome, however, up-charges may apply.  Click here for rush rates. (pdf - 111 kb).   A ship date will be provided on your order acknowledgment, so please advise us right away if there is a problem with that date. Rush orders may incur expedited shipping charges, as well.

  • Proof preparation begins after an order is officially placed.  We understand our customers want to know what their award(s) will look like, but we ask them to use any of the many samples shown on our website and trust in us to provide professional, attractive designs.  If a paper proof (faxed or emailed) is required, there is a $10.00 charge per award.  For quantities of an awards with simple line changes (name or other personalization) we do not provide a proof for every name.  Every award is proofed at least twice by our experienced staff.  If we make a mistake, we will replace the engraved material in a timely manner at no additional charge.

  • SHIPPING:  Merchandise is shipped via United Parcel Service (UPS). "Ground" delivery service will be used, unless otherwise specified. Double-check your shipping address, as any corrections made by UPS will incur a $15.00 fee charged to you credit card or added to invoice.  This includes fees for return shipping to us if UPS can not determine the correct address.  No credit will be given if your order is time-sensitive  and an incorrect address was furnished.  Please specify if you need Air Service ("2nd Day Air" or "Next Day Air"). We can also use Federal Express, U.S. Mail, or Messenger Service (Chicagoland deliveries). Generally, we will not ship to P.O. Boxes.  We can ship outside the United States, depending on merchandise, but request the use of customer's shipping account for all charges, including any Duty or Tax.  There is a $20.00 service charge on these shipments.  Please provide Tax Identification number.  When shipping freight collect or 3rd party shipping account, there is a $2.50 handling fee, per carton.
