There is likely an issue with permissions on the account.
Contact Customer Support by using the Live Chat feature on Orbus.com or by emailing customersupport@orbus.com.
We will verify a few pieces of information and guide the next steps.

If you share a user account with others, you’ll need to have a personal account created with your unique email address. The administrator of your account can do this under MY ACCOUNT> COMPANY USERS. All order confirmations are sent to the email address associated with the account logged into when the order is placed.

Once the account administrator adds new users to their account, the website automatically sends the user an invitation to establish their password.  After the user sets a password, he/she will have access to the site. 

When you select a product, the lead times appear under each selection.

The production time of your entire order is based on the product with the longest lead time in your cart. Production timeline is shown on the checkout page on the menu on the right.

By default, Orbus delivers online proofs with the areas that need your attention highlighted. Please review all proofs in Adobe Acrobat, not your browser. Adobe Acrobat allows you to see additional data not seen in your browser. You can switch highlighting off by clicking the button shown below.

By default, Orbus ships all orders “blind”. Your company’s name and address will be at the top of your shipping labels automatically. Orbus does not brand anything on your order that is shipped out. It’s like you shipped it yourself!

You have up to 30 minutes to change or cancel your order. If you find that your order has been locked, that means your order is in production and changes are no longer possible. Orbus has the fastest lead times in the industry, and we offer same day ship on many items. Once the order is locked, your order is likely printed. You will need to enter a new order to make any changes.

Please reach out to customersupport@orbus.com or call (630) 226-1155 for assistance.

For most products, the user will receive e-proofs during the checkout process after artwork is uploaded. Users are encouraged to download these proofs for review in Adobe Acrobat, review thoroughly and approve the proofs in the shopping cart.

E-proofs are usually found in your “downloads folder” or wherever the default location is for file saves on your computer. Each proof starts with the words, “report”.

Please review each e-proof for accuracy as they will print exactly as we show on the e-proof.

For some complex products, we do not present e-proofs after artwork is uploaded. This product requires manual artwork review by our art team for accuracy. In these situations, you will be emailed the e-proofs from one our team members. The website will provide this information during checkout.

If you receive a proof that is missing copy or colors, please check to make sure you did not design your artwork with our template colors sampled. Our technology used to preflight your artwork is designed to automatically remove our templates prior to print. This will strip anything designed with the colors “template_gray” or “template_black”.

Reassign those colors as CMYK or a Pantone color from your artwork and reupload your file.

If you’re having issues with uploading artwork or understanding your proofs, please reach out to our Art Support Hotline at (331) 201-2380.

Please note: Orbus only accepts artwork exported as a high-res PDF, which has been set up on our graphic templates. You can find each art template on the product page, located on the “downloads” tab under the product images.

Orbus also offers design services at $75/hour.  You start the conversation about this service here: https://www.orbus.com/services/graphic-services/art-design-services 

We accept artwork up to 500 MB.  If larger than this, the system will give an error message.  If you encounter this, please upload your artwork to www.handbookart.com using the “anonymous login button.”

No, you cannot share your cart with someone. Orbus keeps your security as our number one priority. If you would like to share a list of products with someone you can add a collection of products to your Wish List.

This is an excellent resource with many features available to our users.

My Wish List: Wish Lists are able to be shared, which makes them different than other lists AND what makes them a great sales tool! Easily share ideas with your customers by sharing your Wish List. The recipient will be sent an email with a link to the product page where they can browse and review; they are not presented price or the ability to checkout.

You can share it with as many people as you would like. We also offer the ability to add comments to each product you’re sharing (like pricing, features, etc.).

My Saved Lists: Saved lists are for any of the in-progress orders that you needed to save and come back to. For example, if you needed to obtain new artwork or wait for your customer’s approval on an e-proof, you will want to Save to a List so you can come back and continue when ready.

My Requisition Lists: The Requisition List allows you to create multiple lists of frequently-purchased items and use those lists for quick and speedy order placement. Even if you add the products in your requisition list to the cart, your list is not cleared and can be used again and again.

When a user in the shopping cart with multiple quantities of a single product, but wishes to order unique artwork for each, they need to enter the total amount of hardware on one line. Then, each art file will need its own line with the total amount of prints needs each. See below:
Adding Artwork

When a large quantity order is placed with enough product to justify a freight delivery, the website will automatically tag the order as such. Please place the order and a Orbus team member will reach out to set up delivery and provide a freight estimate to you.

During the checkout process, you will need to enter an address that will default to the warehouse you wish to schedule the Will Call pickup.

The best way to do this is to use the warehouse address you need.
