Prices in this Catalogue

Prices: All pricing in this catalogue is in US dollars ($USD). All prices subject to change without notice. Gas tax and surcharge may affect quoted shipping costs. We will advise on total costs for your acceptance.

We do not start an order until we have received full payment usually credit card debit is fastest. That means that when we are ready to cut material we will advise you before we start, and on your approval, then debit your card. We will provide you with the authorization #.

It is advised to  contact your credit card company and confirm that you are expecting a purchase from Caught-In-The-Act and the amount. With security breaches, many visa and mastercard companies will not process a debit unless the cardholder has contacted them in person to arrange a foreign or out of state transaction. If the card is declined it will delay the start of your purchase.

We normally provide daily updates on progress. We believe you should not pay for something and then wait wondering when it will shipped. We do provide approximate shipping date on order confirmation subject to unforeseen delays.

Canadian HST or GST is applicable depending on Canadian delivery address. Overseas may have Value Added Tax (VAT) and duty, or customs and duty fees, VAT, broker fees: these fees are not included in the sale of our products and are the purchasers responsibility upon delivery.
