I can't complete my order, I receive an error while checking-out.
Make sure your billing address matches exactly with your credit cards/bank info. Check the street number and zip code, as well! If you still are having trouble, we suggest calling your credit card company/bank to ask them what address they have for you on file. When entering in your credit card number, do not add any spaces. If you are still having problems please contact our customer service department Monday~Friday 10:00am to 5:00pm EST.
I didn't get any purchase confirmation after clicking "Complete Order."
Only click the "Purchase" button once. There is a chance that multiple "clicks" will charge your credit card several times. Sometimes, the purchase-process might take longer than usual due to computer/server issues and latency.
Can I send my credit card information through email?
For your safety, we do not recommend sending your credit/debit card information or any information regarding a payment gateway through email.

Do you carry this item?
The best way to determine if we carry an item is to enter a search term into the search box on our website. This will show you all the items we carry with that description
If you cannot find an item you are looking for on our site, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide as much information as possible including pictures and be descriptive. A customer service agent will get back to you as soon as possible.
Do you have or sell any catalogs/ecatalogs?
Unfortunately, we do not. Because of our constantly changing inventory, it would not be cost effective for us to issue a printed catalog. The website is constantly being updated to reflect our stock.
Will my item be shipped in one continuous length/piece?
YES, we ship chain and trim in 1 continuous piece whenever possible (which is most of the time). However, there are some occasions in which we are unable to do so for some reason or another. If this situation arises, our support staff will contact you for instructions. All orders will be put on hold during this time, including priority and express shipping. We ask to please keep an eye on any attemps at the number and email you provide if your order is time sensitive.
Can I get more information about a particular item?
Depending on the type of information you need, we can give you a little more detail about most items we carry. If you would like our opinions as far as looks, uses, or feel of an item, we would be more than happy to help. However, if you need specific information that is not listed on our site about a particular item, we may not be able to help. In general, if contents are not listed for a fabric, it is because the contents were not labeled when we received the fabric and we do not have that information.
What is your return policy?
Can I order samples?
Unfortunately, we do not plan to set up a sample system yet. We do not, however, have a minimum requirement (though we do sell cut items by the yard only). You are free to order singles of anything on our website.
How long will it take to get my order?
All orders are shipped in the order they are received; please understand that your order can and will be after other customer’s orders. The shipping cut-off time is 4:00pm EST. It is important to note that orders placed after this time will be processed the next business day.
