How long will it take for my order to arrive?

Please allow 1-2 business days to process your order. All of our in-stock items ship within 1-2 business days after your order has been processed. Orders received before 12pm PST are eligible for overnight delivery.

All stock items that are customizable require 10-12 working business days. This timeline is valid only after you have approved the artwork.

While we stock the materials needed to produce all of our products, certain products like our A-boards or custom copy plaques are built on an order- to-order basis. Please allow up to 10 business days for our production team to produce and ship your product.

Why is the lead-time for your display furniture 4-6 weeks?

All of our display furniture is made-to-order. Generally, our display furniture goes through 4 weeks in the production room, about 1 week in the finish room, and another week in transit to you.

Why do I need to get a freight quote?

We have worked to standardize crating prices and negotiate freight discounts to pass these benefits to you. Because sending freight via trucking companies directly relates to the shipment's weight and distance, an accurate freight quote is necessary to ensure you won't be charged more for shipping a product to you than is necessary.

How does my display furniture arrive at my sub-division?

All of our display furniture ship in fully enclosed wooden crates to ensure maximum protection during transit. We contract all of our trucking companies to deliver with a lift gate, meaning your site does not need to have a forklift on-hand to offload your display pieces.

The crate is kept sealed using thick industrial screws and reinforced with metal clamps. Once removed, individual crate panels can be removed to allow your salespeople to safely remove your furniture.

We deliver to all 48 continental states, and take steps to ensure your product reaches you free of harm. Shock-watch indicators and fragile markings will help you to determine if your product has been mishandled during transit. We also fax out a set of guidelines that includes a checklist of items that your salespeople can go through to ensure a quick and smooth delivery.

Can I return my product?

Yes. MarketLine offers a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee. If, for whatever reason, the product isn't what you'd thought it would be, is defective, or wasn't what you were looking for, we will issue return tags and have your product shipped back to our warehouse for a refund of the product's cost. There are no lengthy RMA's to fill out or set of questions you have to answer. Simply place the unused product in a sealed box and have it ready for pickup. There is no restocking fee, and your money is refunded within 5 business days after we've received the defective or unwanted product. Shipping costs are non-refundable.

I received my order, but it was damaged in transit or is defective. Can I have a replacement piece sent and how long will it take?

Please be sure to examine the condition of your package prior to signing. If there is still damage to your product, simply contact us at 888-744- 6243, or email at Please have your order number ready to reference your shipment. We will ship a replacement immediately from our warehouse and simultaneously issue call tags for the defective/damaged product.

If your order was a custom-produced product like an a-board or custom plaque, please allow at the most 1-2 business days to reproduce.

What is a vectored art file?
