Additional Complaint Information

BBB found this company had an increased number of complaints regarding delivery issues and customer service issues. Specifically, consumers allege that the company has failed to deliver graduation products, i.e. announcements, invitations, in the stated delivery time on company website. Consumers also allege the company is difficult to reach. BBB contacted the business and the business has agreed to meet with BBB to voluntarily cooperate with BBB to eliminate the pattern of complaints. 

Representatives from the company, Herff Jones, met with BBB on June 16, 2016. The company has supplied BBB with information regarding the increase in complaints. The company's response was "Due to a consolidation of two manufacturing plants late last year, production of a small number of graduation announcements and diplomas experienced delays. Herff Jones worked as quickly and diligently as possible to deliver products to the affected customers. To ensure this was an isolated incident, Herff Jones developed and implemented a comprehensive manufacturing, staffing and equipment plan, and monitors this plan daily." 

Herff Jones is happy to address any questions or concerns. Please contact Herff Jones Customer Service Department at 800-837-4235 or visit
