Shipping Questions

How do you ship your products?
We normally ship UPS ground within the USA but can ship other ways, (including overnight!) once your display is completed.

What will it cost to have my item(s) shipped?

Shipping price depends on several factors: where you are located; what is being shipped; how much the item(s) weighs; how many items are being shipped; the physical dimensions of the item(s); and how quickly you need the item(s) delivered.

We can ship anywhere in the world. However, most of our business is done in North America. UPS Ground shipment is usually around $40-$80 on most items.

What should I do if my items are lost by a shipping company while in transit to/from a show?

We recommend;

  1. Track the package as quickly as possible, using your Federal Express or UPS tracking number. (You can do this online or by calling the shipping company directly.)
  2. Notify us immediately, so that we can assist you by being aware of the situation. Often times, shipping companies such as UPS and FedEx will contact us, regarding a lost package - as we prominently place decals identifying TradeShowJoe.com on all our products. (Many times, a lost item is something simple, like a shipping label that has fallen off, etc. If we know your display has been lost, simply being "armed with the information" may help us to get your display back to you if/when the shipping company comes calling.)
  3. Display systems are an important part of a company's marketing reach. As such, you should always insure the display for the full replacement value. If the display is lost, file an insurance claim with the shipping company, then contact TradeShowJoe.com so we can produce a duplicate display system for you (including graphics). We archive all of our creative products just for this very situation.

Graphics Questions

What file formats do you accept for artwork/graphics reproduction?
We currently accept only Adobe Illustrator (7.0 to 10.0) -or- Adobe Photoshop 5.0 or later files. Files can be mailed/delivered to us on CD, DVD, or Zip 100 disk -- or uploaded via FTP (please call us at 866-821-1520 for FTP instructions) directly to our server. Small files can be sent via e-mail. Your TradeShowJoe.com representative can provide file specifications and more detailed information regarding file types at the time of order.

 

Trade Show Planning Questions

When should I order my display?
We suggest that you order well in advance of your next trade show (minimum of two to three weeks), so that the display can be available for effective use at the appropriate time. On average, most displays are completed and delievered within about one week! Items requiring customization such as graphic design, custom full-color graphics, or screen printing will take longer. Please plan on approximately two weeks, minimum for custom graphics related projects. A representative from TradeShowJoe.com will happily provide you with an accurate turnaround estimate when placing your order. And, we will keep you apprised of the production cycle while your display is being produced.
