Delivery Time
BWC strives for consistent on time delivery of orders. There are product service times listed for most all services. BWC is always working to meet or beat the in-house service times. Due to the seasonal nature of the business and special issues that can occur with some orders these time can vary. When promising your customer their orders, please allow for a small window of additional time unless you have placed a rush or a special request with a representative for special handling.

Lab Delivery Time
Orders placed via the United States Postal Service, File Transfer Protocol (FTP), electronically or shipped overnight, must be in the system by 12:00 noon or they will be processed the following *business day. *Our business hours are Mon-Fri (CST), 8:30 AM – 5:30 PM.

Guaranteed Shipping
BWC has always provided fast on time services. When you need to have a specific guaranteed shipping and arrival date of an order, contact your CSR to discuss your service needs. We will verify the scheduling and cost of your rush needs.

Rush Services
Same Day services add 200% for over the counter or expedited shipping. 24 hour service times shipped same day add 100%.
48 hour service times shipped in 24 hours add 50%.
Rush services are based on print service and can be combined but will incur a higher rush charge. Example: 24 hour print service, mounting and finishing coating represents three separate 24 hour services making this a three-day normal service. If this were ordered for a two-day rush each service would be 100% rush. A one-day service would require a 200% rush.
For special projects such as film processing and printing for events, or after hour lab openings contact a representative for a quote and availability.

Shipping Damage
On occasion you might receive an order that has been damaged in the shipping process. Please call immediately so a Customer Service Representative (CSR) can give you instructions that enable a claim to be filed with the carrier. Most carriers require you to return all packaging materials for their inspection. Do not dispose of the damaged packaging prior to calling BWC. We will file the claim with the carrier. BWC will work quickly to correct the damaged content of the order.

When there is an error or damage to your order, please call a CSR so the order can be corrected or replaced. All digital orders are held in the system for 30 days. Please provide the order number and only the file numbers of the items that are to be remade when contacting a CSR.
Orders not placed entirely thru FTP must have all materials returned. Return all items. CD’s guide prints job bags and paperwork.

BWC will treat each remake order as a RUSH and a BWC representative will report to management the issues that caused the remakes to assist in reducing further incidents.

BWC uses the finest materials and equipment available in the production of your work. We work with individuals and studios to match a look or style that has best represented your prints or services. We always print for the most pleasing skin tone unless you ask us to do otherwise. Photographic materials are greatly improved for longevity and digital printing gives us greater capabilities to match image color. But due to the characteristics of photographic materials it is some times impossible to match prints.
Improperly exposed or balanced negatives or digital images can never meet the standards necessary for professional printing. We will make the best print, however if you want a remake you will be charged. If you have a problem or a difficult situation contacts a CSR at 800-445-0264. They can assist in having your images tested to see what service could provide the best image reproduction and maybe save a re-shoot.

BWC makes every effort to remake any product if our client is unsatisfied. If a credit is necessary the original paperwork and a written request should be submitted by writing, email or fax.
