"I order school calendars every year for opening week. I have never had to send anything back, so I can't rate that. The calendars are always beautiful and sent on time. I have ordered pens a few times in the past and have never had a problem with them. I like the looks of the laser engraved the best. The shipping costs may be a bit high, but due to the weight of over a hundred calendars it may be appropriate."

"I have for a long time ordered my pens through Amsterdam Printing but for the last year maybe their website is SO SLOW and freezes while trying to get into my account. I am the type of person that wants to place my orders online and doesn't want to speak to someone about upgrading, buying more etc. Just let me buy what I want but I can't do that because their website NEVER works anymore. This is very frustrating thus I have taken my business to another website that works great and has the same pens I normally buy. And further more every time I would bring the websites lack of convenience to a customer service person they would say and do nothing about it."

"We have always used Amsterdam printing, and although our last experience was only a minor gripe, the way C.S. and ultimately someone named (Matt) who claimed to be a supervisor handled it, or rather did not handle it - we will take our business elsewhere. I see that many complaints on here get acknowledged and they are very sorry and hope to give them a chance in the future...its all BS. Anyway, i will try to be brief: Attempting to place a large order for PENS, noticed although site showing black ink being available, order summary changed it to blue. Chatting with two diff. C.S. agents both verify ink is in stock. Im told to place order despite what screen is showing and it will be adjusted later. Well, turns out no black. They want to substitute an alternative. More $$ of course w/out any offer to provide them for same price...which was disturbing but oh well not that big of a deal. The Gripe was due to they then wanted a Separate shipping charge and processing/setup costs?? It did not make any sense as i can only assume it would ship with the rest of the order - which had free shipping. But oh no, not amsterdam. They wanted $38 shipping for a box of pens. This is in the CONUS folks. Cant imagine it costs them more than $10. After getting nowhere with the CS Rep, she gave me the email of Matt at taylor corp. He provide basically the same generic reply you see on here, then NEVER HEARD from him again. I provided my phone # and we had already corresponded via email. No excuses. Be warned, there are many many other options people. Shop around for a decent company and avoid the frustration."

"I ordered the Laser Key Rings from Amsterdam and was very pleased with the outstanding personal customer service I received, the high quality of the Engraved Laser Key Rings and the prompt delivery of the Laser Key Rings. My customers love the Laser Key Rings and this promotional product allows me a great way to keep my contact information in front of my customers all year long."

"I recently order 250 Lumen Penlights from Amsterdam. Generally, I was very pleased with the products but on the negative side, fully 10% of the products I ordered had lights that did not work. This happened about 2 years ago when I ordered an equal amount of Brightwell Key Chains. Service was great, delivery was early, etc. I probably won't buy any more items with lights in them though."

"I had ordered from Amsterdam several times in the past, and our customers were satisfied with their product, even though their shipping times and prices were terrible. This time, however, there was an issue with my order. They told me the wrapper style was unavailable for one of their products. After weeks of emailing and phone calls, I received an invoice that was lower than the original quote. Amsterdam had removed the "troublesome" product from my order. I contacted them, and they had no notes regarding any of my previous conversations with them. After remaining on hold for approximately five minutes while a CS operator spoke with her supervisor, she offered to discount the removed item for me by 25% even though I would still need to pay full price shipping. Having worked in the customer service and freight industry for 15 years, I know how shipping prices are quoted. Amsterdam could have afforded to eat the shipping. I am sorry to say I will not be ordering from them in the future."

"I ordered pocket calendars from Amsterdam Printing (AP). I got a catalog in the mail and it had them buy one and get one free. I had purchased them before from another company that had high quality items reasonably priced...but I thought I would give them a chance since the price was so good. Well when I received the shipment I only got half..the half I paid for. When I called them Customer service said that I did not enter the promo code. The catalog directed me to a specific web site when you went to that website to order it showed the buy one get one free (the later in red ink) the regular website did not have that on it. The catalog never said you "buy one get one free with this promo code".
While I find their product 3 out of 5 star their customer service is 1 out of 5. I feel their advertising is deceptive and told them they are loosing a possible repeat customer. I will go back to the other company were I am treated with respect as a consumer.

“We apologize for the confusion with your recent calendar order. Unfortunately, we are unable to combine multiple offers for a single purchase. We were only able to process one offer with your purchase. You did receive the ‘Free Shipping Offer’ so therefore we are unable to extend the ‘Buy One Get One Offer’. We value your business and we truly apologize for the confusion. Thank you for this review and your valuable feedback.”

"I ordered ink pens on 8/19/2013. Total amount was $482.51.
I was sent an email on 08/20/2013 asking me to review order.
I had found same pens cheaper and called Amsertdam and cancelled order. She approved the cancellation. Someone called and told our secretary that I could not cancel because they already shipped. I called again and talked to Penny and also told me that the order has been cancelled. We received part of the order anyway. They had withdrew $243.25 from bank account without my approval. The date was 08/29/2013. I called again on 09/04/2013 to let them know that I had cancelled order on 08/21/2013. I was told that I could not cancel order because that they had shipped on 08/21/2013 and would refund money if I sent pens back. It was all lies. The ship date was 08/26/2013.The email that i received on 08/20/2013 verified that the ship date would be 08/28/2013. I looked up ship date on UPS site and shipping date was 08/26/2013. They are ripoffs and would warn anyone to not do business with this company

"Placed an order online on 06/11 for 1500 pens, received a confirmation email showing my total at $873. This was the only email that I ever received with $$ specified. Received pens in the mail on 06/21, immediately started giving them away/using them. On 06/24, checked our bank account and discovered Amsterdam charged us $170 more than specified online and in confirmation email. I called customer service, and the first woman I spoke to was very apologetic and transferred me to someone she said would get me a credit issued. After speaking to two more people, I was told, quite bluntly, that they were sorry but that was what it cost. Period. The only solution customer service offered me was that I could send back the pens for a refund (which I couldn't do because they had already been opened and used).

I was quoted, and I accepted, an amount on the internet, I was forwarded a confirmation amount with that total, and then after the product was received, I was charged $170 MORE. I was never, at any point, notified that the total would be different, or offered an opportunity to cancel because there would be additional charges.

While I am satisfied with the speed of service and quality of the pens, I am extremely unhappy with being overcharged and the unwillingness of the (3rd) customer service person that I spoke with to resolve the situation.

"Horrible experience from trying to purchase online for 2 weeks unsuccessfully to misinformation from different customer service people. They are very polite and apologetic but the fact of the matter is I was told that I would receive my product which was time sensitive on May 17. The product had not even been processed on that date. They told me they would rush it to me, but then sent it ground UPS. I will get the product one day AFTER I needed to give it to students. after being told I'd have it 5 days before I needed it. Buyer beware. They are very sweet, apologize, but the follow through doesn't match the sweetness. I won't purchase from them again."

"I just got to look at my Volanti I ordered. They look wonderful. I ordered 300 and received a few more than that. Some of my order is on backorder until June but I do not need them until the end of the year so I was perfectly fine with that. I randomly chose various pens and all wrote in black as I requested that color. The engraving looks absolutely wonderful. I am so pleased with the looks and the condition and the price. I would recommend these pens."

"I placed orders with Amsterdam every few years, and was always happy with their pens. However, many months after we ordered a batch in 2008 all the comments we received from clients were negative. They said the pens either wrote sporadically, or wouldn’t write at all. We tested many that we had left and confirmed they were bad. So (my mistake), on the storage shelf they went.

When a client recently asked whatever happened with the bad pens, I made the effort to find the invoice and call Amsterdam. I suppose I should have realized there would be a caveat attached to their “100% Satisfaction Guarantee”, but one year expirations for pens that are handed out aren’t much better than no guarantee at all.

In any case, I asked for 350 replacement refills, not 421 new pens, and we’d be the ones removing and replacing the defective originals. Amsterdam’s first response was, “we’ll send you the refills for $0.29 each.” When I tried their online customer service they tried to tell me they didn’t even have refills for that pen. That was dishonest, and when I let them know that, then their response was essentially: You’re too late, take your business somewhere else. Contrary to what they have said in response to other complaints, Amsterdam will NOT do whatever it takes to satisfy customers. I just wanted what I paid for but never received. Too bad - $682 down the drain!

“Thank you for taking the time to fill out this review regarding your experience with Amsterdam. We do appreciate hearing from our customers, as their comments are vital for us to continue improving our services.

The lack of satisfaction you experienced is unusual and not the standard
for Amsterdam. After researching this issue, the pen you are referring to has been discontinued. There are no refills available for which that information was incorrectly supplied. We are sorry for the inconvenience and annoyance this incident has caused.

Thank you again for your comments. We hope that you will
give us another chance to serve you.”

“We see that this order was placed and fulfilled back in 2007. Sometimes pen ink does dry up when the pen hasn't been used in several years. We are sorry this occurred with your order. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help in the future.”
