PRODUCT

  • Dimensions are approximate and sizes or colors may vary slightly due to the characteristics of our natural and handmade products.
  • Due to the handmade nature of our fabrication process and the natural materials we use in our designs, no two items will ever be exactly the same. The items shown in our catalog and website are a close representation of the finished items you will receive.
  • The most current price list supersedes any previous pricing or price lists. Quotes provided under written or digital catalogsare estimates. Pricing of materials are subject to change according to the current market rates. Prices listed on our website, https://greatcom or https://btjliving.com, will be the most current prices and those charged at the time of order.

FIRST TIME RETAILER BUYER:

A minimum order value is required for opening orders, plus shipping paid by Retailer. Each wholesaler will have minimum order values and shipping set on a case-by-case basis. Initial orders must be paid in full with credit card or PayPal before you will be put on the production schedule, unless prior arrangement have been made. 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 for jewelry are available with pricing dependent on the scope of the project. Please contact bernie@btjliving.com to inquire.  

RETURNING RETAILER BUYER:

Wholesale reorder minimums and shipping will also be set on a case-by-case basis.

ORDER FULFILLMENT & LEAD TIME:

  • Each item that leaves Great Land Bracelets is designed and handcrafted exclusively by skilled craftsmen. 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. We do everything we can to provide you with an accurate estimate. The usual lead time for wholesale orders is approximately 4weeks, with larger orders sometimes taking longer to fulfill. Orders placed during busy seasons are also likely to have longer lead times. Due to the nature of our proprietary and artisan-made production process, lead times may also change unexpectedly. While unlikely to happen, we would communicate any changes to you promptly.
  • Production begins upon Retailer's payment in full of invoice and agreement to terms unless prior written arrangements have been made, which may happen on a case-by-case basis.
  • 4week lead time typically is required for standard orders and reorders. Should you require a faster delivery time than the promised ship date, a rush charge of 15% to the total amount due will apply.
  • Certain raw materials may be back-orderedand completed products will be shipped upon availability. Retailer will be notified of any issues for your approval.
  • Any items that appear on the invoice and are missing from a shipment, or any other issues with a shipment, must be reported within 5 days of receipt of order via email or phone. At that time, we will correct concerns. If notification of missing items is not provided, the customer is liable for amount due stated on invoice.
