Payment Options & Policies
We offer the following choices of payment:
To ensure proper credit of your payment, write your H&H account number on each check. In most cases, your check will post within 24 business hours of our receipt.
We accept Visa, Master Card, American Express, and Discover for payments on your account. Credit cards may be updated on the website once you are logged in to your account.
Prepayments are applied to your account balance, not to specific orders.
A statement detailing monthly activity is produced on the first business day of each month. This statement can be viewed via your H&H website account page on the 1st day of the month. A printed copy of that monthly statement will also be mailed to any account with an outstanding balance.
Accounts with an extended credit account should treat this statement as a monthly billing and pay the requested balance in full.
The total amount of this statement becomes past due after the 25th day of the month, and a 1.5 % finance charge is applied to any remaining unpaid balance.
EXTENDED CREDIT ACCOUNT
We offer a monthly extended credit account status upon satisfactory completion of a credit application and routine credit investigation. We request you supply three extended account credit references and allow three to four weeks for this approval process. You will then be notified by email with the results of your account status.
Extended Credit Accounts will receive a monthly statement showing all activity for the month if a payment amount is due. When a credit limit is set up on an account and that credit limit has been reached, orders will not be released into our production system until sufficient payment is received and posted.
TIMELY-PAY DISCOUNT FOR EXTENDED CREDIT ACCOUNT
A timely-pay discount will be shown on the statement and applied to the account when the required payment is received by the 10th of the month. If not paid by the 10th, then the full statement amount will be due and the timely-pay discount will not be given. The account is considered delinquent when payment is not received by the 25th, and finance charges will be added. Delinquent accounts may have orders placed on hold until we receive a payment.
PAST DUE ACCOUNTS
Delinquent accounts automatically lose monthly extended credit account status. The full account balance becomes due immediately and the account may be placed on hold. Past due accounts may be set up for payment by credit card per order, plus an extra 30% of that order applied to the past due account balance until paid in full.
There is a $25.00 service charge for each check returned due to insufficient funds, and the account may be placed on a “credit card only” basis.
H&H is required by law to collect sales tax on orders delivered in the State of Missouri unless provided with a valid state sales tax exemption certificate.

Limit of Liability
Submitting any digital file, film, print, slide or negative to this firm for processing, printing or other handling constitutes an AGREEMENT by you that any damage or loss by our company, subsidiary, or agents, even though due to the negligence or other fault of our company, subsidiary, or agents, will only entitle you to replacement with a like amount of unexposed film and processing. Except for such replacement, the acceptance by our company, subsidiary and/or agents of the film, print, slide or negative is without other warranty or liability, and recovery for any incidental or consequential damage is excluded.
Service Times & Rush Orders
Product Service Times
Always total all service times plus transportation to arrive at an accurate delivery date for your order. Service times for each product category reflect estimated in-plant service times under normal working conditions. You may find service times listed on our web site on each individual product or service page. These service times do not include Saturdays, Sundays, holidays, or shipping time to and from the lab. FTP/FTS orders received after 9:00 am CST (12:00 pm CST for rushes) will be considered as the following day’s work. While seasonal demands or special problems with an order can affect service time, every effort is made to maintain service schedules on all orders.
When your order requires special rush handling to guarantee a shipping date, there will be an additional 100% charge added to the entire order. Standard service times can be found on our website on each individual product and service page.
Please note the following guidelines for Rushes:
School and Sports RUSH Orders
Remakes & Credits
We guarantee the quality of our work and make every effort to follow your instructions to avoid mistakes which require remakes or credits. We ask that upon receiving your order, please check it immediately.
Orders returned after 30 days will be considered reorders (not remakes) and will be invoiced at our regular catalog prices. Whenever new services are added to a remake order, additional service time and additional charges will be added. When either is necessary, please follow these instructions:
For remakes simply create a new order and follow these three steps:
We will always print for the most pleasing flesh tones unless you ask us to do otherwise. However, characteristics of the photographic materials used often make it impossible to match color and density to the original subject or even to a previous order from the same negative or digital image. Improperly exposed digital images will be printed on a “print regardless” basis and may be subject to extra charges. We will make the best print which is practical to produce, with the understanding that the results will fall short of our normally acceptable professional standards. Remakes will not be accepted at a no-charge on severely over or underexposed digital images.
Surface Treatments and Mounts
The materials and techniques H&H uses to print, texture, mount, and coat the photographs we manufacture from your files will change over time. Our vendors change their materials and processes occasionally and this can affect the subtle look and feel of the surface of your prints. H&H does not guarantee that current prints will exactly match the color, texture, lustre, or mount of prints made in the past.

The following policies and procedures apply to all photos or print images sent to us as “finishing only” orders (mounting, artwork, coat, etc.):
