Wholesale Terms & Contract

Welcome! I am always excited to find retailers and designers who are as passionate about one-of-a-kind artisan made goods as I am! There are many reasons you may want to consider partnering with Cortney Rector DESIGNS. I’m able to offer your customers and clients quality, truly handmade polymer clay jewelry and seasonal art that is fully made in Canada.
 

  • Access to the full Cortney Rector DESIGNS wholesale jewelry line, and seasonal art  including wholesale only designs.

  • Ability to customize existing lines to perfectly complement your store and your brand.


If you are interested in carrying Cortney Rector DESIGNS in your boutique, please email me at cortney@cortneyrector.com with the following information: Store name,  store location, website, buyer contact info and years in business. Please use the words “Wholesale Inquiry” in the subject line. I will process your request as quickly as possible, usually within 1-2 business days, and, once approved, you will receive login information that will allow you to access my online Wholesale Catalog where you may place orders at your convenience. If you would prefer that wholesale line sheets be emailed to you, please specify that when contacting me.

WHOLESALE PRICING:
All prices are listed in Canadian dollars. All retailers will receive wholesale trade pricing, plus the cost of shipping. Due to the nature of the materials we work with, prices and availability are subject to change without notice.

OPENING ORDERS:
A $150 minimum order is required for opening orders. Initial orders must be paid in full with credit card or PayPal before you will be put on the production schedule. Should there be additional shipping charges for any reason, we will send a digital invoice for the additional charges that must be paid before shipment.

Custom designs, whether for jewelry, or other art pieces are available with pricing dependent on the scope of the project. Please contact cortney@cortneyrector.com to inquire.

REORDERS
There is a $100 minimum reorder and 50% is due upon order and the remainder due before the order will be shipped.

TERMS:
Opening order must be paid in full by credit card or PayPal.
Reorders must be paid in full before shipment (50% at time of order and 50% when ready to ship)

FABRICATION & LEAD TIME:
Each item that leaves Cortney Rector DESIGNS is designed and handcrafted  exclusively by artisan Cortney Rector. Once your order is received, it will be reviewed and you will be contacted to confirm the details and be given an estimated ship date. I do everything I can to provide you with an accurate estimate.The usual lead time for wholesale orders is 1-3 weeks, with larger orders sometimes taking longer to fulfill. Orders placed during busy seasons are also likely to have longer lead times. I may also, at times, have items in stock that can ship very quickly or I may be able to rush your order if the production schedule allows. Rush orders may require an additional processing fee.
Contact me at cortney@cortneyrector.com regarding custom orders, availability of quick ship items, rush order requests or any other questions you may have. I really enjoy making pieces specifically for a shop or location.

SHIPPING AND HANDLING:
All orders are shipped via Canada Post shipping from Florenceville, New Brunswick Canada. Expedited shipping methods and other carriers may be used at retailer's expense. International orders are subject to various customs restrictions and may have different shipping requirements. Retailer is responsible for all shipping, duty fees and taxes that may occur.

DAMAGES/DEFECTS:
 Please inspect all shipments immediately upon arrival. Please contact cortney@cortneyrector.com within five days of receipt of damaged or defective shipments. Note that this says, "within five days of receipt" NOT "within five days of opening". This means that if you receive your order, but do not open it for six days and it is damaged, you will not be able to return it. Please keep all packaging, including packaging materials, even if damaged, while I process your return. Returned merchandise will be repaired or replaced with new merchandise if unable to be repaired. Returned merchandise will not be accepted if it is held for more than 15 days after receipt or if returned without contacting meto report damage or defects as outlined above. Retailer is responsible for all return shipping charges.

RETURNS / EXCHANGES:
Your wholesale order is made for your shop or boutique so once it is ordered, merchandise may not be returned or exchanged. I only accept returns in the case of defective merchandise as noted above.

PACKAGING:
All orders come withCortney Rector DESIGNS packaging and hand-stamped muslin bags and/or boxes suitable for gift giving. Information cards for specific designs will also be included as needed.
HANDMADE VARIABILITY:
Due to the handmade nature of our my  process and the materials I use in my designs, no two items will ever be exactly the same. The items shown in my catalog are a close representation of the finished items you will receive.

EXCLUSIVITY:
Approval is required to become a Cortney Rector DESIGNS retailer. This allows me to evaluate many factors that go into determining exclusivity and proximity. While we are sensitive to and try to be aware of each retailer's territory, we can not guarantee exclusivity.
MISREPRESENTATION:
Retailers are not permitted, under any circumstance, to display and/or sell my designs, whether on their premises or elsewhere, without the packaging/labeling provided and/or to represent themselves or any other entity as the creator and/or designer of our products, in whole or in part.
It is illegal to provide misleading, false or fraudulent information to establish a wholesale relationship and receive discounted prices for anything other than resale purposes.
