All disputes arising out of, relating to or connected with these TOS or your use of any part of the awesometik.com Service will be exclusively resolved under confidential binding arbitration held in Travis County, Texas before and in accordance with the Rules of the American Arbitration Association, by a sole arbitrator applying Texas law (without regard for conflicts of law principles). The arbitrator's award will be binding and may be entered as a judgment in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under these TOS will be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to these TOS, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.

This Terms of Sale is not meant to contradict, violate or run contrary to any portion of the Terms of Service which governs your use of AWESOMETIK™ services and your use of the AWESOMETIK™ Web Site. If any portion of the Terms of Sale is found to contradict, violate or run contrary to the Terms of Service, the Terms of Service will govern and will be the binding document with regards to that portion.
The Terms of Sale is meant to provide general information regarding policies surrounding purchases from the AWESOMETIK™ Web Site. The Terms of Service is hereby incorporated by reference into this document and thus by agreeing to comply with the Terms of Sale you again agree to comply with the Terms of Service.
2) Content of Your Purchase
The primary value of the AWESOMETIK™ Website (Web Site) is the ability for users and potential purchasers ("Users") to create signs and graphics that display any content they choose. This is done by means of computer interaction alone between the Users and the Web Site.
As such, you agree that no AWESOMETIK™ employee, employer, officer, owner, agent or authorized representative is responsible for monitoring the content of the signs or graphics created or uploaded by Users, neither while on the website, nor after purchase and during the production process.
You agree that signs that are purchased will not be checked for content, spelling errors, grammatical errors, logical errors, aesthetic quality, color matching or any other factor that is within the User's Realm of Control through the use of the tool on the Web Site. You, as a User, have many opportunities during the purchasing process to check your purchase for layout and content and agree that you have done so.
"Realm of Control" refers to any part of a sign that is editable by the User. Including but not limited to: color, font size, font type, font style, font color, position of text, position of graphics, color of graphics, quantity of text, quantity of graphics, spelling of text, use of text, size of graphics, justification of graphics, justification of images, or color of the background.
While AWESOMETIK™ does not review the content of your sign or product, you still agree to be bound by the restrictions as laid out in the Terms of Service, and should it come to the attention of AWESOMETIK™ that you have violated the Terms of Service or this Terms of Sale, you agree that AWESOMETIK™ will send you notice of cancellation and your order will be canceled. You further agree that the purchase price of your order, less any cost incurred during the processing of your order and its cancellation, will be returned by signed check through the United States Postal Service, postmarked within 30 days of your receipt of notice of cancellation.
You also agree that the content of your sign or product does not contain any content that is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, vulgar, harassing, defamatory, obscene, pornographic, indecent, inflammatory, libelous, tortious, hateful, or racially, ethnically or otherwise objectionable, or invasive of another's rights including but not limited to rights of celebrity, privacy and intellectual property, as provided in Paragraph 7.2 of the Terms of Service.
3) Color Matching
AWESOMETIK™ sells its products through an E-Commerce Web Site viewable by computers connected to the Internet. These computers may view AWESOMETIK™ products solely through their computer screens ("Monitors"). Monitors may be configured to display images and colors in a variety of ways, both through the use of hardware setup and software setup. There are many possible settings for Monitors and there is no true uniform standard to which all Monitors conform. What may look one way on one monitor, will look different on another.
Further, computer monitors display images with light and use a standard known as RGB to do so. AWESOMETIK™ produces products in a variety of ways (CMYK, PMS, and others) that do not use light.
As such, you agree that AWESOMETIK™ does not guarantee that the colors as they appear on the screen will look the same as the colors as they appear on the purchased product. AWESOMETIK™ works hard to make the colors on the screen be as true as possible to the printed colors, however, the differences in Monitors and the differences between light and pigment make it impossible to guarantee matching colors for all Users.
AWESOMETIK™ sells products made of canvas. You agree that you have read our website and/or researched independently and that you know what this material is and what you are buying. AWESOMETIK™ only guarantees that you will receive the material advertised on the Web Site that you purchase. You agree that AWESOMETIK™ is not responsible for products received that are made of materials thought by the purchaser to be something other than advertised on the Web Site.
As an example, you agree AWESOMETIK™ is not responsible if the Canvas received by the purchaser is not what the purchaser envisioned Canvas would be.
You agree that all products produced and sold by AWESOMETIK™ are for novelty purposes only. AWESOMETIK™ does not make any claims about the legal compliance or registration of signs, license plates, or any other products sold by AWESOMETIK™ or by a AWESOMETIK™ affiliate. You agree to check with any applicable legal authority for the standards, rules and regulations governing the types of Canvas or other products permitted for your particular use.
5) Uploaded Images
AWESOMETIK™ permits users to upload images onto their signs and products through the AWESOMETIK™ Web Site. You agree that AWESOMETIK™ is not responsible for the quality of the images you upload.
You agree that you alone are responsible for making sure that the quality of the image you are uploading is of high enough quality to be satisfactory to you at the size you select on the sign or product that you are purchasing.
Images are created and stored in a variety of ways and you agree that AWESOMETIK™ is not responsible for ensuring quality images for any image file format available on the Web Site.
6) Production Time
AWESOMETIK™ works hard to ensure that orders will be produced and exit the AWESOMETIK™ facility within three business days from the date of order. The date of order is the calendar date of order if the order is placed before 6:00pm Central Standard Time and the next business day after the calendar date of order if the order is placed between 6:00pm and 11:59pm Central Standard Time.
This means that a purchase made at 3:00pm Monday, will be shipped out on Thursday of the same week. This production time is not guaranteed and is limited in many ways as discussed in the Shipping Policy.
You agree that AWESOMETIK™ will take at least 3 business days to produce your order and that it may take longer than 3 business days as laid out in the Shipping Policy. The Shipping Policy is hereby incorporated by reference. Moreover, you agree that our shipping time frame may depend on your response time to our inquiries regarding your order. Title to your purchased goods shall pass to you at the time AWESOMETIK™ deposits such purchased goods with its designated shipper.
7) Return and Refund Policy
You agree that AWESOMETIK™ guarantees the products it sells are free from manufacturing defects and as such will be good for 90 days after purchase of the product. If the product fails or breaks due to a manufacturing defect during that time, you agree to take a photograph of the failed or broken product and send the photograph or the original failed or broken product to AWESOMETIK™. Upon receipt of the product or the photograph, AWESOMETIK™ will send a replacement of the product or will issue AWESOMETIK™ credit for the purchase value of the failed or broken product(s). AWESOMETIK™ credit can be used on the AWESOMETIK™ website for any purchase.
AWESOMETIK™ does not guarantee or warrant that its products will work for any intended purpose or in any set of conditions. You agree that the determination of whether a products failure or breakage is due to a manufacturing defect is within the sole discretion of AWESOMETIK™. You further agree to provide full and complete information regarding the circumstances of the failure or breakage, including but not limited to the use of the product, the conditions the product was in, and any other information useful to an informed determination by AWESOMETIK™ as to the cause of the failure or breakage.
8) Changes to Your Order
AWESOMETIK™ provides many opportunities to review, revise and cancel the order process before actually placing your order. AWESOMETIK™ is able to offer its products at the present prices due to the efficiency of allowing the customer to create and modify their own products.
You agree that AWESOMETIK™ is not responsible for reviewing, revising or canceling orders, products or images once an order has been placed. An AWESOMETIK™ employee, employer, officer, owner or authorized agent may revise or cancel an order but is not required or obligated to do so.
You agree that you have reviewed your order and that no further additions, corrections or changes need to be made and that your order is final as is.
