·      RETURN OF TAPES - The Standard Terms and Conditions of your contract have instructions on the time allowed for return of tapes. Please make sure that tapes are returned to the correct address. A return address sticker for Bonded Archives should be on all tapes (this sticker should not be confused with the vendor label indicating where the dub was made.) Nearly all CASH series episodes are shipped from Bonded Archives in Burbank.
