Question: Why is there color variations from the last shipment of silk flowers? -back to top

Answer: Silk flowers are extremely labor intensive, each flower is made and put together by hand by an skilled crafter.  In order to fill the demand, these are manufactured in 4 different factories to keep up with the demand.  We have a large selection of styles and colors, and also keep these in stock in large quantities, unfortunately with 4 different manufacturers, there will be variations from shipment to shipment.  In order to get the exact same shade - please make sure to order everything you need in 1 single order.  Separate orders may end up having different shade / slight style variation.  If such case happens, we will gladly exchange it for you.  However, you will be responsible for shipping the item back, we will pay for the shipping to send the exchange to you. 


Question: Are back order/sold out dates accurate? -back to top

Answer: Our listed arrival dates for back ordered or sold out products are an estimated date.  Products come via sea from our factories outside of USA.  This means that although we have an typical transit time from the factory, actual arrival time is unknown.  Many factors may affect the actual arrival date of merchandise to our warehouse, such as transit time, time getting through customs, etc. Thus, merchandise arrival date listed is an estimate only.

 


Question: I have not received my package, even though tracking number shows delivered. -back to top

Answer: We’re sorry that you have not received your package even though tracking number confirms delivery.  The first step you should take is to check all around your house. The package may have been placed where it’s difficult to see (to avoid being stolen if just laying around) such as behind plants, etc.  Second step you should take is to check with your neighbors.  Sometimes it’s possible that the package has been misdelivered to a neighboring address close to you. 

If you are still unable to locate the package, you can give the courier a call using the following contact information, depending on the shipping courier that made the delivery. 
UPS (United Parcel Service)
http://www.ups.com/content/us/en/contact/index.html?WT.svl=SecNav
USPS (United States Postal Service)
https://www.usps.com/customer-service/customer-service.htm       
For UPS shipments, UPS typically is able to provide detailed information on your delivery/package, which may help to locate the missing package.  For USPS shipments, although may not be as detailed as UPS, USPS is still often able to provide additional information to help to locate your missing package as well. 

If after trying the above steps, you are still unable to locate your package, you are welcome to contact our reps using our contact page below,
http://www.efavormart.com/contact-us.aspx
For UPS packages, we can help you file a missing package tracer with UPS.  They will conduct an investigation to help locate your package.  Lost package should be reported to us within 72 hours of delivery for greatest results from filed tracers.  Results from lost tracers typically become available after 1-2 weeks after filed.  For USPS packages, unfortunately, no tracer can be filed. 

Sometimes, even after ALL the above steps have been taken, the UPS tracer has confirmed delivery, and your package still can not be found.  We apologize.  In most cases, we can still offer to send a replacement shipment by splitting the cost 50/50 of the order, with a signature required request as a final option.

NOTE:
*In a few extremely rare cases, packages have been delivered, however, may have been unfortunately stolen after successful delivery.  We apologize, we are unable to be responsible for packages that may have been stolen after successful delivery.  If you believe this may be the case, please contact the local authorities directly to file a report.  

*If after reviewing your order, you realize that the shipping address you’ve provide is incorrect (wrong zip, city, street number, etc) or missing info (such as apt#, suite#, etc), and the delivery issue was caused  by this incorrect or missing info, you can let us know as well.  In most cases, as a courtesy to our customer, we may be able to offer to send a replacement to your corrected address by splitting the cost 50/50 of the order.

 


Question: Care instructions. -back to top

Answer:   Care of our tablecloths are very easy. If well cared for, our products can last for many many years to come.

Satin/Organza/Flock/Animal print styles - Due to the delicate material, dry clean should be used only. 
Lamour/Crinkle/Pintuck styles - Can use machine, gentle cycle, warm water, low temperature dry. However, we highly recommended hand wash, hang dry to prolong life of product.
Polyester styles - Safe to be used in regular home washers/dryers.  

• Bleach can be used for our WHITE tablecloths/overlays/runners/sashes, but not recommended for COLORED tablecloths. Mixing dark/bright colors with whites is not recommended.
• As long as bleach is not used, our COLORED tablecloths will not fade, even after dozens of uses/washings.
• Stains should be washed as soon as possible to avoid them locking in and becoming permanent. 
• WARM water with a regular detergent should be when put into washing machine to avoid fading colors
• Similar to regular clothing, remember to always wash with similar colors.
• When put into dryer, do not use HIGH temperature settings as it may lead to possible shrinkage, use tumble dry LOW
• Iron with LOW heat if still have any wrinkles
• It is recommend that they be removed from dryer while still warm. This is to minimize excessive wrinkles.
• Products can then be ironed with low heat to get out any wrinkles that are left. They should then be folded and put away for storage.

 


Question: Do you collect sales tax? -back to top

For orders shipped outside of California, we do not collect sales tax. For orders within California, efavormart collects sales tax  for the State Board of Equalization. If you have a valid California resale card, please submit a completed and signed efavormart Resale Form prior to placing your order. You can download a PDF Resale Form here (Adobe pdf format, download Adobe Acrobat Reader here) and email us the completed form along with your reseller license, or fax it to 626-667-2259. Once submitted, we will verify the completed form with the California State Board of Equalization. Until we have a signed, verified form, sales tax will be collected. If you've already placed an order, receipt of the efavormart Resale Form is not an agreement that the tax will be refunded.  Sales tax will not be refunded retroactively, meaning any order placed before submitting the proper documentation will not qualify.
