We are authorized distributors of Hook-Fast products. If you are interested in any of their products which are not yet included on our site, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Ordering Law Enforcement Badges
Circle Signia screens all law enforcement badge orders prior to production.

Law enforcement badges, for US law enforcement agencies, require appropriate identification in order to comply with United States federal law, and orders will not be entered into production until we receive one of the following: a copy of your photo identification, a copy of your certification, a letter on departmental letterhead confirming employment status. Submitted materials are subject to verification. Identification may be supplied via e-mail (sales@circlesignia.com), FAX (401-435-5631), or by post. Please include your order number on any provided materials. United States federal law enforcement badges require agency authorization in writing. Please contact us before placing orders for federal law enforcement badges. If we do not receive copies of your credentials, identification, or authorization within five business days, you order will be cancelled.

If you are ordering a badge for collection or for entertainment purposes (movies, television, etc.), please notify us, in writing, prior to placing your order. United States federal law enforcement agency badges are not available for collection or entertainment purposes, nor will they be shipped to any address outside the United States.

We do accept custom badge orders from outside the United States, and we can manufacture badges for most languages that use Roman/Latin based characters. For non-US law enforcement agency orders, a copy of your identification must be provided with the order. This does not apply to custom firefighter, emergency medical, or security badges.

Customers are responsible for the security of packages at their address/location. If a customer has doubts about the security of delivered mail at their address, we strongly suggest providing us with a more secure address. We will provide any information we can to assist a customer with a claim, but replacement of merchandise classified by the USPS as "delivered" is the responsibility of the customer.

Custom Products
All custom items (badges, name bars, and pins for example) are "made-to-order" and require longer production times. The approximate production time is included in each item's listing. These times are approximate and are often longer during the holidays. If you need an item by a specific date, contact us so that we can check the production schedule. Unless an error has been made, custom items are not returnable.

On rare occasions, an item may go out of stock before your order is received; or a manufacturer may decide to discontinue an item. If an item in your order is currently unavailable or has been discontinued, we will notify you of its status, and of the estimated date of availability. If the majority of your order is available, we will ship those items and leave the remaining item(s) on backorder, unless you request that we cancel them.

If you have paid with a cashier's check or money order, your payment will be held and your item(s) sent as soon as available. If you wish to cancel your backordered item(s), your payment will be refunded in the form of a store credit.

In rare circumstances, an item may be discontinued by the manufacturer or vendor before we have a chance to remove it from our website. If so, we will notify you immediately, and cancel those item(s) from your order.

We are not responsible for items that are lost in shipment due to invalid or inaccurate shipping information, or for items received by any other authorized or unauthorized party.

RoundAbout Directions
Because you never quite know where the path is going to take you, RoundAbout Directions was chosen as the name for the parent organization of Circle Signia, Circle Sundries, and Circle Graphics. Ten years ago, we'd never have guessed that this is what we'd be doing today; and today we can't imagine doing anything else. Tomorrow? Well we try to keep remembering that it's not about the destination, it's about the journey.
