Please report any violations of the TOS to our staff.
XVIII. Proofing and Color Matching
Digital proofs are provided upon request via email or the web. Color matching is done to the best of our ability. Due to the infinite configuration possibilities of end-user hardware and software, it is impossible to perfectly match the proof that is provided. All proofs are understood to be close representations of the printed product, and will inevitably have a certain degree of deviance from a monitor's image.
When a customer approves a proof, if there are mistakes in that proof, even if there are mistakes that the printer made, those mistakes are NOT the responsibility of the printer. We provide a proof in order to check all work, yours and ours. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO REVIEW THE PROOF CAREFULLY AND CATCH ANY AND ALL ERRORS PRIOR TO PRODUCTION, AS THIS IS PRECISELY THE FUNCTION OF A PROOF. We will not under any circumstances reprint any orders if mistakes in the finished product also appeared in the approved proof. This policy is not unique to our services; it is universally accepted by printers everywhere. We want you to be happy with the finished product so please take time to review all proofs thoroughly before approving, and do NOT approve if you have any questions or concerns.
By approving a proof you agree that you have verified that the design is correct as-is and would like it to be produced immediately. No further changes will be permitted to an approved order.
XIV. Replacements and Refunds
Under no circumstances will a refund be issued for any custom printed graphics. All graphics produced are completely custom, and are therefore only of value to the original purchaser. We may replace defective graphics if the original defective portion of the graphic is returned to us in its entirety. Defects are limited to faulty materials or workmanship. Products damaged in shipment or by third-party carriers are beyond the control of both us and our customers. Unless the carrier honors the claim for reimbursement in the event of damages, we cannot replace or refund any order or shipping and handling. Under no circumstances will installation error be considered a defect.
XV. Shipping and Deadlines
You agree that under no circumstances will the estimates or rough turnaround times provided via our website or automated services be considered a guarantee, a promise, or a contractually binding representation. Production times vary due to current demand and availability of raw materials. IF YOU REQUIRE DELIVERY BY A SPECIFIC DEADLINE, YOU MUST ARRANGE TO PAY RUSH FEES AND EXPEDITED SHIPPING COSTS. IF YOU HAVE NOT MADE SUCH ARRANGEMENTS WHEN YOUR ORDER IS PLACED, YOU DO NOT HAVE A GUARANTEED SHIP DATE. If you do arrange to obtain a guaranteed ship date, this merely guarantees that the order will ship out on or before a certain date via a specific shipping method, BUT WE MAKE NO GUARANTEE THAT THE SELECTED CARRIER WILL NOT DESTROY OR DELAY A SHIPMENT ONCE IT IS IN THEIR POSSESION. Carrier delays and damage are clearly beyond our control. If we fail to meet an agreed ship date, you understand that no refund will be issued for the product itself or the expedited shipping costs; only RUSH FEES may be refunded at our sole discretion. Under no circumstances will we be held liable, responsible, or otherwise culpable in any way for any delay or damage to shipments once they are in possession of the freight carrier.
