Upfront Payment for Pre-order is available only if the customer wants to secure and pre-book the order and manufacturing fulfillment.

In the case of a pre-order, the manufacturer requests a deposit to initiate project plans, design, and manufacturing, with the remaining balance due after the order is completed (once the product is ready for delivery). The seller (manufacturer) guarantees the timely completion of the product, as agreed upon by both parties.

After reaching a technical and financial agreement, we kindly request email confirmation from your end regarding setup options, configuration, and design plans approval.
Once we receive the upfront payment, we will promptly send you an email confirmation of the payment received. Simultaneously, we will commence work on your desired equipment front and rear design plans and send them to you via email for your approval in PDF format. The laser engraving process will initiate once we’ve received your final confirmation reply via email concerning the front and rear design plans.

Please note that it is the customer’s responsibility to thoroughly review the final proof and layout for accuracy in terms of spelling, grammar, and content before commencing the engraving process. The customer, are free to make changes to the order specifications before the laser engraving process begins. However, if there are changes to the setup configuration after we’ve completed the laser engraving process, there may be additional charges for re-designing, front or rear plate pricing, engraving fees, and man-hours. Upon the physical completion of the device, we will inform you and request confirmation of your shipping address and phone number once more. During this period, we will initiate an 8-hour test run with audio test result documentation.
