When logging in (either during checkout - or by clicking the Login/My Account link at the top of the page), you will see a "Forgot Password?" link below the Log In button. You can select this, provide the email address used for your account, and we will e-mail a link to reset your password. If you cannot find the e-mail address associated with your account, you may need to create a new account.
Any previous accounts you've created with Day-Timer, AT-A-GLANCE, Mead, and Day Runner are still there - and you should be able to login or reset your password. If you need further help in resetting your password, please feel free to contact us using the phone number or chat links from the Customer Service section at the bottom of the page.
You can create a new account while placing your order. After you complete checkout, you'll be invited to create a password for your new account - and all of the information entered during checkout will be saved and ready when you come back for your next order.
A Customer Number is a unique number we use to identify customers. This number allows us to easily pull up your account and information. The number is usually printed on the address label of your renewal mailings.
To save your payment information for recurring use, simply register online and maintain your account online. Our secured shopping allows you to store not only your credit card payment information, but also frequently billed or shipping addresses, shipping preferences and quick lookup of previous orders.
Periodically promotions and special offers are sent to our customers through emails and special mailings. Registered customers can also sign up on the Manage My Account page of their account or you can sign up to receive our email exclusives by entering your email address in the form below.
Registered shoppers can enable the Quick Checkout feature providing faster checkouts using frequently-used, stored information. Convenient for frequent shoppers, it allows for auto-population of essential information like billing and shipping addresses, shipping method, telephone numbers and email address. Additionally, credit card payment information can also be securely stored.
No area of our site is directed at children under 13 years of age, but our site asks for age-identifying information from our visitors to tailor/customize the visitor's experience at our site. We do not collect personally identifiable information for children under 13 years. Additionally, we do not have any agreements with outside organizations to collect personal information at our site for children under 13 years.
If a child under the age of 13 registers with the AT-A-GLANCE website without parental or guardian permission, then the parent or guardian can review the information that we have collected from their children online, prevent the further use or maintenance of such information, or direct the deletion of their children's personal information by contacting us.

From time to time we offer special promotions or incentives to our valued customers. These promotions may be communicated via email or through special mailings like catalogs and may include a promotion that is required to receive the special incentive. These special offers are not usually advertised and are only offered through the use of a promotion code. To sign up for our email exclusives enter your email address in the form at the bottom of this website. Registered customers can also sign up on the Manage My Account page of their account.
The Security Code is required for all transactions with American Express, Discover, Visa and MasterCard. The Security Code is an added security feature used by your credit card company to protect you against online fraud. Because the Security Code number is not printed on your receipts, it helps to ensure that someone is not using your credit card information fraudulently. The digits are printed on your card, rather then engraved on the plastic like the digits of your credit card number. The Security Code is used to verify you have possession of the credit card you are attempting to use. For your safety, we only accept credit cards with a Security Code number.
Visa, MasterCard, Discover: The Security Code is a 3-digit security code printed on the back of your Visa, MasterCard or Discover Card. The number appears on the signature strip after the last four digits of your account number. The signature strip may contain your entire account number or just the last four digits of your account number. Either way, the Security Code will appear after the last four digits of your account number.
American Express: On American Express cards, the CCID is 4-digits and appears on the front of the card above your account number to the far right.
Please leave any special comments for our warehouse team here. If an item is available in assorted colors, you can note your preference and we will ship that color if available. If you have already selected the color you want on the item page, you have nothing to worry about - that is the color you will receive.
Please note - this field can't be shared with the delivery driver, so please do not leave shipping instructions. Item customization notes are taken on the product page - if you've already customized the product there, there is no need to leave further instructions.
Lastly, we aren't able to offer gift-wrapping at this time. We'll be sure to let you know in the future when that becomes available.

• Your company’s complete name and address
• The seller name (ACCO Brands USA LLC)
• Signature, date and title
• Also include your customer account number at the top of your certificate. If you are unsure of your customer account number, contact Customer Service to obtain your number.
