CREDIT TERMS

PRE-PAID ACCOUNTS
Full payment is required prior to the commencement of production. All new showrooms are classified as prepaid accounts automatically until a positive credit history is established with New Ravenna unless otherwise agreed to in writing.

50% DEPOSIT ACCOUNTS
All orders will require a 50% deposit at the time an order is placed. The remainder must be paid prior to shipment.

NET 30 ACCOUNTS
Upon review of credit rating and account history, terms may be extended to net-30 days, commencing on the date of the invoice. Invoices will be mailed as soon as the invoice has been created. Accounts with balances over 30 days or those which have exceeded their credit line will be placed on “hold/no ship” status automatically. All decisions with respect to the extension, continuation, or reinstatement of credit shall be at the sole discretion of New Ravenna.

For all orders of $5,000 or greater, a 50% deposit is required prior to the commencement of production with the remaining balance due net 30.

LATE PAYMENT FEES
Interest is calculated by multiplying the total outstanding invoice balance exceeding 30 days, including any unpaid interest charges, aging by 2% each month, 24% APR, or partial month unpaid. Customers further agree to pay any and all collection and legal costs incurred by New Ravenna to collect debts owed.

SAMPLES

GENERAL
Due to the inherent range in both stone and glass, customers typically order samples for all projects. New Ravenna cannot guarantee a match to website images, advertisements, concept boards, or samples dated older than 60 days. Placing an order based solely on catalogue or website images is discouraged. One mosaic, field, and cut tile sample per colorway per design is offered at no cost. Samples are intended to reflect the pattern and color placement as requested and chosen by the client, not the range of the material in the final product. New Ravenna does not guarantee to match the material range as shown in product samples. Samples are valid for 30 days; if your project has not been confirmed in this time range, please resample to view the most recent lot of materials.

SAMPLING PREMIUM MATERIALS
Additional charges vary and will be applied to samples using premium materials. Please consult a New Ravenna account representative for current market pricing.

WATERJET SAMPLES
Waterjet samples are available for the cost of one full template at its listed price. In lieu of a physical waterjet sample, computer-aided color renderings may be ordered alongside physical samples of current range materials at no cost.

MATERIAL VARIATION
Samples are meant to be a representation of the pattern and material chosen for each individual project. Exact color cannot be guaranteed to match a sample, concept board, or marketing or advertising image. New Ravenna will make every attempt to provide a close range with the current inventory when a sample is noted and returned with each purchase order.

ORDER POLICIES

QUOTES
Quotes are valid for 30 days after date of original quote. A new quote must be provided after this period has been exceeded.

PLACING AN ORDER
All orders must clearly specify the following information:

  1. Product description unit quantity, dimensions/CAD and designer center drawings (if available)
  2. New Ravenna item number with current unit price
  3. Colorway and finish
  4. Complete and correct shipping address
  5. Shipping carrier instructions

 

ESTIMATED TIME OF SHIPPING (ETS) & LEAD TIME GUIDELINES
ETS dates are estimates only and are subject to change: specific deadlines cannot be guaranteed. Please refrain from booking an installer until after receipt of all the tiles and setting materials have been delivered to the project site/warehouse and reviewed completely. Actions taken based on estimated lead times are not New Ravenna’s responsibility.

Lead time is assigned as an estimated date after receipt of:

  1. final signed confirmation to New Ravenna,
  2. deposit, and
  3. any collateral material (e.g., templates, customer owned material (COM), drawings, measurements)

Order production will not begin until all above assets are delivered to New Ravenna. Production times vary and are not guaranteed. Every effort is made to adhere to posted lead times. Please be advised that the provided date is an estimate, does not including shipping time, and is not an ETA (estimated time of arrival).

Purchaser must place a written order via email, mail, or fax (757-442-3580). No other ordering methods are accepted.

MATERIAL HAND-SELECTION
If hand selection of material is requested, a charge of at least 50% will apply to the order.

MATERIAL HOLD REQUESTS
If requested, New Ravenna will hold raw material for customers for up to 4 business days for East and Central customers, and up to 7 business days for Pacific and Mountain customers, subject to the following conditions:

  1. New Ravenna must have received a purchase order requiring the material.
  2. The order must be for at least 200 square feet.
  3. Material will be released if New Ravenna does not have a confirmed purchase order by the end of the timeline.

CHANGES TO WORK IN PROGRESS
Changes requested to a product after manufacturing has started will incur at least a 25% charge (of the product’s price). Clients must sign a change order identifying the requirement for the rework and acknowledging the upcharge. The order will then be resubmitted to production and will most likely be assigned a new estimated ship date.

RUSH ORDERS
When the production schedule allows, rush orders may be accepted. Please check with your account representative to see if the rush can be accommodated. An additional rush charge of 25% will apply.

OVERAGE
In order to guarantee a perfect installation, please add surplus materials to the order as follows:

+ 15% surplus on most products;

+ 30%+ for diagonal installations or patterns with large repeats.

To help estimate overage, please call an account representative for a quote or to request a CAD estimation.

ADD-ON ORDERS
Adding to a previous order requires an original material sample. Every effort will be made to complement the range of the original material but cannot guarantee exact range match. Because of the natural color, markings and range of stone, it may be difficult or impossible to procure the color or markings found in the original job. Standard lead times and minimum order rules apply for add-on projects. Rushes are not guaranteed for add-on orders. All add-on orders (excluding products from the Studio Line) will incur a $500 set-up fee.

COMPLETED PROJECT STORAGE
Occasionally, some projects must be stored due to varying timelines and delivery coordination. For that reason, bill and hold agreements are available upon request. Completed orders will be stored in New Ravenna’s facilities for ten (10) days with no charge. After ten days, New Ravenna will charge the customer 5% of the order value per month.

CANCELLATION
Orders may only be canceled by either party for any reason, at any time, prior to customer’s return of signed New Ravenna order confirmation. Once order confirmation is signed and received at New Ravenna, no order may be cancelled by either party.

ACCEPTANCE & INSPECTION
New Ravenna dealers are responsible for both inspection and acceptance of all materials prior to installation. Material must be inspected immediately upon receipt. Most New Ravenna mosaics are face-taped, and should not be stored for more than 30 days. All material must be kept in a climate-controlled, dry area prior to installation. New Ravenna will not honor any claim made after 30 days of receipt or post-installation.

INSTALLATION
The tile installer must follow the installation guide included in each shipment. To achieve best results, it is strongly recommended that all materials are dry-laid prior to installation.

A New Ravenna installation guide is included with every order. If the guide is missing from the order, guidelines can be retrieved on NewRavenna.com and through any New Ravenna representative.

Installation or use of any kind constitutes material acceptance. No refunds or credits will be given after installation.

LIPPAGE
Variation in the height of adjoining tiles is called lippage. This is defined in the ANSI (American National Standards Institute) standard A108.02, Section 4.3.7: “Lippage refers to differences in elevation between edges of adjacent tile modules.” Variations in the plane of the substrate may affect lippage. In many cases, when tile is installed by the thinset method over an uneven substrate, the installed surface will not meet lippage standards. Lippage, in many New Ravenna mosaics, is natural, to be expected, and must be resolved at installation, per TCNA guidelines.

RETURN MATERIALS AUTHORIZATION (RMA)
Because of the custom nature of New Ravenna products, all sales are final. Material may be returned only with approval and signed RMA paperwork, and all returns must be for fifty (50) square feet or more. Material shipped back to New Ravenna without RMA will be returned to the sender. When a project is resized or reworked for reasons other than workmanship (in New Ravenna’s sole discretion) or material defect, shipping will be charged at the customer’s expense.

Please contact support@newravenna.com to begin the RMA process.

RESTOCKING FEES
Returned material is subject to a 25% restocking fee. New Ravenna will waive the restocking fee if the client orders more material (at the same total price) from New Ravenna at the same time.

TAXES
Product prices do not include any taxes. The purchaser is responsible for any locality taxes. Showrooms located in, or shipping into Virginia must provide resale exemption certificates to avoid being charged sales tax on resell orders (orders to consumers). Orders placed by showrooms located in Virginia, or for installations and any marketing material or sales tools (concept boards, chip charts, and any items not intended for resale) will be charged applicable sales taxes on their orders.

OVERSTOCK
Occasionally, materials may be sold as “overstock” due to an issue in material range or a discontinuation. These orders are sold “as is” and are not supported under New Ravenna’s warranty.

CUSTOM DESIGN

GENERAL
A New Ravenna account representative will guide each client through a hands-on design experience. S/he will furnish a quote for the project, advise about details such as material variations, lead times, shipping and handling costs, and provide installation tips to ensure each customer has a thorough understanding of the project requirements and is eventually thrilled with the finished materials.

In order to help visualize the unlimited possibilities of custom mosaics, the artistry and design team at New Ravenna creates hand-drawn sketches on artist vellum paper, a digital representation of the image, computer-aided design and digital renderings of the space. Once drawings and physical samples are approved, the creation phase begins.

CUSTOM DRAWING FEES
The ancient craft of mosaic-making allows almost any creative vision to be transformed into mosaic art. Collect any and all inspiration (drawings, photographs, fabric samples, magazine clippings, etc.), and send to your assigned sales representative. Our art and design teams will create a one-of-a-kind drawing based on the inspiration, wishes, and requirements collected. Once all details (color, sizing, character, etc.) have been approved, the artwork will be scaled to your project’s size and our master mosaicists will create the mosaic on top of the artwork.

Each custom drawing will incur a fee of $500 for color drawing, per request. The drawing fee includes three iterations base on client feedback. Every iteration afterwards will incur a new drawing fee. Several patterns in our portfolio require a custom drawing, which will always be noted alongside the pattern in the price list. An account representative will provide a quote for custom physical samples.

CUSTOM SCALE AND MATERIAL
The custom mosaic process allows the option to modify the scale of a pattern to fit a smaller or larger space or architectural plan. Many patterns can be adjusted to incorporate a variety of mosaic styles, such as integrating traditional mosaic into a waterjet pattern or waterjet elements into a traditional mosaic design. An account representative will assist the customization process with samples and drawings.

A set-up fee of $250 is applied to all custom waterjet projects and existing designs that are resized or redesigned.

CUSTOMER OWNED MATERIAL (COM)
Customer owned material may be incorporated into New Ravenna mosaic projects if the following approval criteria are met:

  1. Before confirming the order, the desired material must first be tested under New Ravenna’s standard production processes. To perform adequate testing, the customer must send a sample of five (5) pieces of 12in x 12in x 10mm material to New Ravenna.
  2. If the material is deemed suitable for manufacturing:
    1. New Ravenna will report the estimated quantity required to the customer.
    2. The customer will purchase the material in the required quantities at a size of 12in x 12in with 10mm thickness.
    3. The customer will ensure that the materials are shipped to New Ravenna. Once materials have shipped, the customer will provide, in writing, the:
      1. quantity shipped to New Ravenna
      2. related purchase order number
      3. shipping carrier
      4. tracking number

Additionally, the customer agrees that:

  1. New Ravenna will not accept material in any other format than what has been approved for production. Any unapproved materials that are shipped to New Ravenna will be returned to the customer at the customer’s expense.
  2. The quantity required by New Ravenna is an estimate. Any additional material required to complete the project will be purchased by the customer. Additional material will be accepted following the guidelines listed above.
  3. If requested, unused material can be returned to the customer at the customer’s expense.
  4. The use of customer owned material invalidates New Ravenna’s warranty.

SPECIAL ORDER MATERIAL
New Ravenna can source almost any specialty material outside of our listed material pallet. However, we cannot guarantee an exact match of a client’s specified color or range. The cost of this material will be decided on a case by case basis, and we must receive a deposit paid in full before ordering the material.

MADE TO MEASURE FITTING SERVICES
This add-on service allows any project to be pre-cut and assembled to fit the exact project dimensions. This serves as insurance that the finished product is elegantly placed with consideration for both the material and pattern repeat. Additionally, a made to measure project requires less for the installer to cut and alter on site, leaving less clean-up and no waste.

Made to measure services incur an additional 25% charge per project.

STONE FINISHES
The following finishes can be applied to most stones:

  • Polished: a polished finish has a glossy surface that reflects light and emphasizes the color and veins of the stone. When a stone is polished, the details, colors, hues, and vein structure show more prominently, putting more of an emphasis on the natural characteristics of the stone. A high polish finish will bring the stone’s natural color to its fullest because it will ultimately reflect the light and appear more saturated.

Add $5.00 per square foot to polish a stone that is stocked with a honed finish.

  • Honed: a honed finish is a satin, smooth surface with relatively little reflection of light. A honed finish is flat and will usually appear lighter in color than it would in a polished state. When a polished stone is honed, the depth, hues, and veins that were once very prevalent may be reduced. The degree of honing depends on the stone, but may vary from light to heavy. Stones stocked with honed finish are marked with (H) on the stone group chart. Stones without (H) are stocked as polished.
    Add $5.00 per square foot to hone a stone that is stocked with a polished finish.
  • Venetian Honed: a finishing method that features softly rounded edges, thus giving each piece of stone a pillowed look. Stones with this finish will have a similar color, hue, and vein profile to honed stones.

Add $15.00 per square foot for Venetian Honing.

  • Venetian Polish: similar to our Venetian Honed finish, this method features softly rounded edges, but the stone has a polished, reflective surface. Stones with this finish will be have a similar color, hue, and vein profile to polished stones.

Add $10.00 per square foot for Venetian Polish.

  • Hand-Chopped: mosaics made of tesserae which have been hand-chopped into irregular sizes.

Add $3.00 per square foot for hand-chopping.

  • Tumbled: tumbling a stone removes the polish from all surfaces and smooths all edges. Any stone under 3” can be tumbled.

Add $3.00 per square foot for tumbling.

JEWEL GLASS FINISHES

  • Sea Glass™: Jewel glass inherently has a polished, glossy surface. However, any glass tesserae up to 3” x 3” can be tumbled to achieve the familiar velvet touch reminiscent of aged beach glass.

Add $5.00 per square foot for Sea Glass™ finish.

READY TO SHIP / STUDIO LINE

Ready to ship products are sold from warehoused inventory. Product samples of all materials in this line are provided as a representation of an average range of the material, however, lot samples of this product line cannot be provided as there is no guarantee that lot samples will match the materials used in any other orders, sample cards, images, installations, or concept boards. All Ready to Ship products can be made to order except mouldings and pencil rounds. If color-matching is essential to the project, please request the order to be custom made. Price and lead time variations will occur between Ready to Ship products and their custom versions.

New Ravenna cannot accept responsibility for replacing stone or glass based on color variation as consistent “lots” are not maintained over extended periods of time. Every effort will be made to fill the final order with material in coordination with the approved and returned sample, however, samples older than 30 days may require resampling prior to production. A hand selection charge of 100% may apply to replacement samples.

Please check with an account representative for current stock quantity. Every effort is made to keep appropriate stock of products in this category, but items may stock out periodically. Additionally, product offerings may be discontinued without advanced warning.

Because Ready to Ship products are made for inventory, “add-ons” are not offered. Please consult with one of our account representatives to order the appropriate quantities. Should extra material be required after the order has been closed, a new order will be placed and filled from inventory. There is no guarantee that the material will match the original lot.

New Ravenna will not replace material at no cost due to a shipping damage claim. All claims must be made in writing to the carrier within five days of receipt. Failure to give such notice within the time specified herein shall be deemed a waiver of the purchaser’s rights to claim such discrepancy. Resolving damages or issues caused by a third party carrier is the customer’s responsibility.

RETURNING/REPACKAGING MATERIALS
Should you need to return materials to New Ravenna for any reason, please follow the guidelines in this section.

Please do not dispose of any crates, pallets, or packaging materials until the product has been fully inspected. All original materials can and should be repurposed for repackaging. If the original product was shipped in foam, the foam will always be in multiple sections which can be saved and reused for a return shipment. If using a new box, the foam can easily be cut and/or broken down into smaller sections. This is the best way to repackage our materials.

In case you need to use materials not included in your original shipment, please do not use loose packing peanuts. Bubble wrap is an appropriate packaging material for lightweight shipments.

When returning materials that were packaged on cards, please restack the product in a similar fashion to which it was shipped to you, i.e., foam, cardboard, product, cardboard, product, and so on. If possible, please secure the cards together to ensure the product remains secure in shipping.

If your return shipment requires palletizing, please ensure all materials are in boxes stacked neatly, as close to the center of the pallet as possible, with a material like scrap cardboard filling any empty space. If several small boxes are being using, please consolidate into one large box if possible. Boxes on the edge of the pallet risk damage when being loaded and unloaded. At a minimum, palletized products need to be wrapped thoroughly with thick plastic wrap. For maximum security, the boxes should be secured into the pallet with straps or ties.

If you are not 100% confident with your repackaged shipment, please consult our shipping specialists who will be happy to provide advice on how to pack the shipment properly.
