What's the status of my order? What does “Awaiting Fulfillment” even mean?
- You can check the status of your order at this link.
- “Awaiting Fulfillment” means that we are still in the process of making your stuff (we print almost everything on demand) and packing it up for you. It’s normal for your order to spend a while in this status.
- “Shipped” means we’ve sent your order to the post office, and it’s now on it’s way to you. If your order has shipped, you’ll see a tracking number you can use to monitor its progress through the mail. Please note it may take a few days before your tracking number shows any updates.
- “Partially Shipped” means some of your stuff is on its way, and we’re still working on the rest. We often split up orders into multiple shipments, so we can get each item to you as quickly as possible.
My order still hasn't shipped! Why is it taking so long to get my gear?
- Most of our orders ship out within 7 business days. This means it may be a week and a half of calendar days before your order ships, and then it will take a few more days to travel to your location and be delivered.
- Based on our experience, we recommend waiting two weeks from the date you placed your order before contacting us. In almost all cases, everything is fine and your order will ship soon.
- Sometimes we experience huge order spikes, for instance when the organization is in the headlines. During these spikes, it may take us up to 10-14 business days to ship.
I made a mistake with my order. Can I change the items or the shipping info?
- If you need to make changes to your order, please contact us as soon as possible and include your order number. If your order hasn’t shipped yet, we may be able to make certain changes.
- If your order has already shipped, unfortunately there is no longer anything we can do to change it.
- We can generally make changes to the shipping address and the purchaser contact information associated with the order.
- In most cases we cannot change, add or remove the retail items purchased in your order. There are customer protection processes in place that prevent us from adding new charges to your order, or changing the existing charges.
- If you absolutely need to change the items in your order, please contact us with the form below. We will cancel your original order and issue a refund. You will then be able to place a new order with the correct item information that you need.
The webstore is broken! I can't complete my order! Help!
- We're sorry that you're having trouble. Almost always, if the webstore isn’t working correctly, if you try again on a different browser and/or computer, you will be able to purchase items successfully.
- If you’re unable to complete your purchase, be sure you’ve entered your information in all fields, and clicked the “I Certify” dropdown. These fields are required before you can checkout, in order to comply with U.S. campaign finance laws.
I received my order, but my stuff is missing/damaged/wrong!
- We try our absolute hardest to ensure that all orders are fulfilled accurately, however mistakes do (rarely) happen.
- If you received an order that is missing items, contains the wrong items, or contains damaged items please contact us with your order number and details about the product you would like to return. We will respond as quickly as possible with information on how to process your return.
- Your request must arrive within 14 days from the time your order was delivered.
- If your damaged item is discontinued, we can provide you a with a different item or refund your purchase.
Can I order gear that's no longer available in the webstore?
- Unfortunately, no. The organization moves fast, and so do we! We'd love to be able to offer discontinued items, but it's not currently possible.
How do I contact the organization?
- Here at Bright Blue Ink, we run the organization's webstore, make the stuff, and ship out the orders -- but we're not actually part of the organization.
- If you have something to say to them, we recommend you contact Texas AFL-CIO directly.
If the above didn’t answer your question, please contact us.
