What is Setup?

How do I pay and what payment methods do you accept?
Select your preferred payment method on the Checkout page.
We accept payments by all the major credit and debit cards, by BACS (bank transfer), or by cheque, made payable to 'Promo Parrot'.
Can I see an Artwork Visual with my artwork/logo on the product(s) before production?
Absolutely... we will never print any promotional products without your approval.
After you have placed your order, paid and supplied us with the artwork you wish to print, or instructions to that effect, our designers then create an Artwork Visual, displaying your artwork on the product(s) for your approval. Once you're happy with the Artwork Visual, click 'Approve', only then will your products go into production.
I've placed my order, paid and approved the Artwork Visual... When will I receive my promotional products?
A 'Lead-Time' is the number of working days (inc. Monday-Friday only) it takes to produce your products from the date you approve the Artwork Visual. Lead-Times vary from product to product. The Lead-Time is displayed on every product on our site and can also be found on your quote.
If you require your promotional products for a date sooner than the Lead-Time stated on the product or your quote, simply let us know and we will advise whether your date is achievable.
We’ve pulled together a selection of fabulous promotional products that can be produced at 24 or 48 hours’ notice (from receipt of payment). Follow our Quick Turnaround link for details.
I need an Invoice. Where can I get this?
Once your order is complete we will issue the invoice. This will be sent by email.
