Answer:
We make every effort to ensure that all prices in the Colorful Images Online store have been proofed for accuracy. Although we strive for perfection, we may inadvertently enter an incorrect price. Should this occur, when your order is processed in our National Distribution Center, the error is identified and handled as follows:

If the price of the item you purchased is actually lower than the online listed price, we automatically make the adjustment and charge the lesser amount to your credit card. If the price of the item you purchased is higher than the online listed price, your order will be processed, including the item in question, at the higher price. Once your order arrives, should you not wish to keep this item, please contact Customer Service and we will arrange for the return shipment as well as a refund to your credit card. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by a pricing error. If you need further assistance, please contact a Customer Service Representative at [email protected] or our toll free number 1-800-272-9209.
