Rush production charges and/or expedited shipping charges may apply. Some products are not eligible for expedited shipping. These items are identified on the individual product pages.
What if I want an item, but it is on backorder?
We strive to maintain adequate stock levels, however, we may run out of or run low on a particular item. Inventory quantities and expected stock arrival dates for each item are shown on the detailed product page. If you find an item that does not have adequate inventory on hand, you have the following options:
  • Reduce your quantity to the remaining amount available on hand;
  • Check out the other related items in this category;
  • Add your email to the Stock Notice and we'll notify you when more inventory becomes available;
  • Request a custom quote/order here.

Taking advantage of the Stock Notice feature does not commit you to purchase. Should you decide you still have a need for the item when it arrives in stock, you will then have the opportunity to purchase the item.
Will I see a pre-production proof of my order?
We do not provide proofs for online orders. If you place an order via fax or email, you will receive a proof prior to production of your order. Any changes or modifications may cause production delays. If any personalization submitted requires any changes, art charges may apply.

When and how does my order ship?
Our goal is 100% accuracy on quantity and timeliness for all shipments. We process orders Monday-Friday. All orders for in-stock merchandise are shipped within 48 hours. Overnight and expedited orders are shipped the same day provided they are transmitted before 2:00 p.m. CT. We do not offer Saturday or Sunday delivery.

Made-to-Order items will require an estimated 3-5 weeks to allow for production and delivery. Please reference the standard production time noted on the product detail page.

The delivery date of your order is subject to stock availability and production time, where applicable.

The estimated transit time is approximately 5-7 days (Monday-Friday) in the continental US from the time your order is placed and is subject to change based on order volume and carrier status.

We offer a variety of shipping options. All available shipping methods will appear in your shopping cart at the time of checkout. To view the applicable shipping charges, enter the shipping address zip or postal code in the textbox provided. Final shipping charges are shown during checkout.

Note: UPS does not deliver to PO boxes. If a PO box address is entered, the order will ship via USPS which does not supply tracking. Summit Group is not responsible for lost or damaged shipments.

We ship exclusively with UPS. The following shipping services are available on our website:

US Domestic Shipping Options

  • UPS Mail Innovations: Best Value - This is our most economical shipping service for shipments under 1 lb and shipped within the US. UPS provides shipping and tracking on the shipment, but the post office makes the final delivery to your destination address. Transit times are comparable to First Class Mail plus one day.
    Note: This shipping method is not available with made-to-order items shipping directly from the factory.
  • UPS Ground: Standard UPS Ground delivery is the most economical shipping service offered for all packages over 1 lb or if a shipment requires guaranteed delivery. Based on the destination zip code, UPS guarantees delivery of all shipments within the US between 1 and 5 business days from our Chicago distribution center.
  • UPS Blue 2nd Day Air: This service will guarantee delivery of your US domestic shipment within 2 business days from our Chicago warehouse. Orders for this service must be placed before 2 pm Central time to ship the same day.
  • UPS Red Next Day Air: This service will guarantee delivery of your US domestic shipment the next business day from our Chicago warehouse. Orders for this service must be placed before 2 pm Central time to ship the same day.

Additional Notes:
  • Expedited shipping on made-to-order items will require the standard 3 to 5-week lead time for production. If you would like to rush your order or you have a specific event date, please contact the Allstate Business Builders Customer Care Team at (800) 915-4520 or via email atcs.businessbuilders@summitmg.com immediately to discuss your order.
  • If you have placed an order for in-stock merchandise, as well as made to order merchandise, the in-stock items will ship immediately (subject to inventory). However, the personalized items will ship when production is complete. It is not uncommon to receive multiple shipments for one order, as items ship as they become available.
Can my own 3rd party shipper numbers be used in lieu of Summit Group’s UPS shipper number for orders?
Summit Group cannot accept 3rd party shipper numbers for any Agent orders. To provide the best possible service and pricing to all Allstate agents, we worked with Allstate and have negotiated new UPS rates which require that we make all shipments via UPS, using the number they have assigned to us. In addition, most of the industry manufacturers that are shipping orders direct, are now charging a manual shipment processing fee - when shipping on your shipper number. Our new rates are based on our total shipping volume, eliminating manual steps and automating the shipping process. In order to maintain this volume and the preferred shipping rates, we must ship on our UPS number.
What if I need to ship to an APO, FPO, or DPO address?
All orders being shipped to APOs, FPOs, DPOs or Rural Routes cannot be shipped with any service other than 4-5 days or ground delivery via USPS Certified mail, with a signed return receipt. UPS cannot deliver to a post office box.

Please remember that UPS will not accept a Post Office box as a shipping destination. If you have entered a PO box, we will have to contact you about additional shipping charges caused by having to use the United States Post Office before processing your order.
How are shipping charges calculated?
Shipping charges are calculated based on the weights and dimensions of your shipment in association with the zip code of the final destination and selected shipping method. If your order contains dropship/made to order items, shipping charges will be calculated on multiple shipments which may make the charges seem inflated.
How do I track my orders?
Tracking is available for every package that we ship with UPS or FedEx via the individual carrier’s website.

As long as you provide us with a valid email at the time of your order, you will receive an order confirmation by email. You will also receive a shipping confirmation by email at the time of the shipment. The shipping confirmation will contain your tracking number for the associated shipment. You can track the status and delivery of your package with ease using online tracking. If you need help tracking your package, please contact Customer Support.
What is the Custom Quote Request feature?
By clicking "Custom Quote Request" in the footer you will be prompted to complete as much information as you can about your item/project of interest. A Client Success Executive will get back to you promptly with pricing and product information. That same representative will also be able to coordinate the shipment so that it meets your requests.


What is your return policy?
If you wish to return or exchange an item, contact Customer Support within 30 days of receipt of the product to initiate such a return or exchange. No returns or exchanges may be made after 30 days. Please note that returns and exchanges are not permitted for made-to-order (custom decorated) merchandise unless damaged or defective.

Unauthorized returns or exchanges without a return authorization number (RA #) will not be accepted and are not eligible for credit. All returned products must be complete and include all components of the item being returned, such as cables, adapters, etc. We are not responsible for lost returns.

What if the product I ordered is defective or incorrect?
Replacements for defective or incorrect product(s) will be generated if such product(s) are reported to Customer Support within 30 days of receipt.

For products shipped from our warehouse that are being returned within 30 days of receipt, Customer Support will provide a return authorization number (RA#) and have UPS issue a pre-paid call tag for return to our distribution facility. Return the product within 10 business days of receipt of the call tag and include all product components and item(s) in their original packaging. Be sure to include the return authorization number (RA#) on the outside of the return packaging.
