Creation Station Business Storefront and Warehousing Sign UP
By Signing up for our business storefront and warehousing solution services, you are agreeing to our terms of service for warehousing listed below.
General Costs and Services Summary
Included at no cost is a fully completed website filled with your products that keep track of all your stock levels and allow you to pull from your inventory as your products are created through our intake process.
There are no setup fees or account service fees. The only fees you will incur are storage fees based on the amount of space you use in the warehouse.
Your website storefront can include warehoused items, print on demand items, kitted items, fulfillment items, and much, much more!
Our storage fees are based on warehouse commercial competitive rates. We've done market research to see what other companies are charging, and have come in at the lowest competitive rate we could find online (not just locally)
Pallet areas are 48" x 40" x 28" cubes and cost $55 per month of storage usage.
Racks have 5 shelves. Full racks are $55 per month of storage usage.
The storage fees are monthly charges and will change based on the amount of storage you are using at any given time.
Shipping charges are based on choice UPS rates (much better than retail rates), and you have the option to choose ground, 2day air, or overnight depending on your needs.
We strive with items stored with CSP to ship next business day (up to 2 business days) once you place your orders through our web portal (your online store). Same day and next day service is not guaranteed, but if you have rush needs, simply reach out and we'll move your items to the front of the line.
There is a $1.25 pick fee for all items that are not produced by Creation Station Printing. Larger items, heavier items, or more complex items may have a different pick rate.
There is a $.65 pick fee for all items produced by Creation Station Printing.
When items arrive from you, they are sorted, counted, repacked and bagged if needed, photographs are taken and an online product item is put up in your storefront with the corresponding stock value.
There is an intake rate for all items that need repacking or bagging and counted for all items not produced by CSP.
If for example, you give us a box of buttons that need to be counted, sorted, bagged, images taken, and a product put in your online store, there is an hourly fee for that which is timed during the sorting process.
Generally (unless items arrive in a crazy mess), we get most items done within a half hour of billed time.
There is no cost for items produced by CSP, bagged, sorted, and put into your warehouse inventory and online storefront.

Creation Station Printing shall under no circumstances be held liable for any special losses due to specific circumstances of the User and/or Customer, indirect or consequential losses or wasted expenditure or if the Product is returned to Creation Station Printing damaged due to the Customer's or shipping carrier's fault. The User will be informed about such returned and damaged Products and they won't be available for stocking or reselling, however, they can still be used for charitable purposes.
Violation of any part of this Agreement or other rules may result in the termination of the User's Creation Station Printing account. Without limiting other remedies, we may limit, suspend or terminate the Warehousing Services and User accounts, prohibit access to our Site, destroy Products, and take technical and legal steps to keep Users off the Site if we think that they are creating problems, possible legal liabilities, or acting inconsistently with the letter and spirit of our policies. We also reserve the right to cancel unconfirmed accounts or accounts that have been inactive for extended periods of time. It is your responsibility to comply with the terms of the Warehousing Agreement, provide us with true and accurate information about you and your Products and follow your use of the Warehousing Services and any changes or notifications made or published by and/or on behalf of Creation Station Printing on the Site or elsewhere from time to time.
- Payments and fees
Payment for the Warehousing Services is based on the fixed fee for warehousing, while the fee for storage is based on specifications (quantity, size of items stored, warehouse location, etc.) of each User and his/her Products individually and can change if the specifications are modified. There is a minimum monthly storage fee set by Creation Station Printing that will be applied to any User using the Warehousing Service, regardless of the amount of Product you store with us. Depending on the location the User has selected for the Warehousing Services, all payments to Creation Station Printing shall be in either U.S. Dollars. Creation Station Printing at its own discretion reserves the right to change the monthly minimum fees and the User will be informed about such changes.
Unless Creation Station Printing and the User agree otherwise, Creation Station Printing should carry out the Warehousing Services when the User has accepted the payment request in his/her Creation Station Printing account, and the charge for the Warehousing Service has been successful. The User shall be responsible for paying all sales taxes, VAT, GST, and other taxes and duties associated with the Warehousing Services (if and as applicable).
In case of non-payment Creation Station Printing at its own discretion can terminate the Warehousing Services according to the procedure set forth in the Warehousing Agreement and destroy and/or donate all User's Products, including damaged items and items with full or partial designs to charity and you hereby waive your right to collect royalties or other fees regarding Products that are destroyed or donated.
Normally this happens after 90 days of non-payment after contact attempts have been made.
- Fulfillment, shipping, and delivery
You are responsible and shall cover all expenses (including but not limited to taxes, duties, and shipping costs) and clear customs if and as applicable to your Products and their delivery to their locations.
Creation Station Printing delivers Products to most places in the world. There might be some countries we cannot deliver to because of international legal restrictions or shipping carrier limitations. Currently, only domestic shipments from our UK facility are available.
By using the Warehousing Services the User agrees that some Products can be packaged and shipped separately and the User will cover all shipping costs associated with the Products.
You are solely responsible and shall cover all expenses (including but not limited to taxes and shipping costs) for manufacturing (if and as applicable) and delivery.
As pack-ins are a part of the Warehousing Services, the User will be charged the same fee for storage based on the Product specifications, and in addition, the User must also pay a picking fee specified on each product in the user's online storefront.
8.1 Success rate
While we strive to do our best, we, unfortunately, cannot guarantee accuracy with every order. Accordingly, you understand and agree that Creation Station Printing shall under no circumstances be held liable in cases of missing or incorrectly added pack-ins or other promo items.
- Custom packaging
As part of the Warehousing Services, the User may also choose to opt-in for Custom Packaging, which enables the User to provide their own custom packaging for Creation Station Printing to ship User’s orders in, and improve the overall shopping experience of their customers.
Creation Station Printing can provide this packaging by purchase from the user.
9.1 Custom Packaging limitations
The User’s Custom Packaging stock doesn’t influence where the order will be fulfilled, hence Custom Packaging will only be available for those orders fulfilled in the fulfillment center that has the specific Custom Packaging in stock. If Custom Packaging isn’t available at the respective fulfillment center where the order’s fulfilled, the User then understands and agrees that the orders will be sent without the Custom Packaging.
The User is solely responsible and shall cover all expenses (including but not limited to taxes and shipping costs) for manufacturing (if and as applicable) and delivery of Custom Packaging to our warehouses and fulfillment centers.
9.4 Success rate

In the event of a User’s Default, Creation Station Printing shall have the discretion to require payment of any outstanding charges owed to Creation Station Printing and issue the User a new Warehouse Receipt as a condition of continued warehousing of the User’s Products. Creation Station Printing may demand that the User removes the Products from Creation Station Printing’s facility within a stated period not less than 30 days after the providing of such notice to the User.
