Customer Supplied Proofs

We don’t send proof otherwise requested by our clients; once the file was received we are not liable for any misspelled or incorrect information.

Color Proof Accuracy

Please note that although color proofs supplied to the customer are highly calibrated and very accurate, they cannot match the final printed product 100%. This is due to the fact that proofs are created in a different way than the printed piece (ink, paper stock, registration, line screens, etc.) Also note that the customer proof may not closely match our proofs or the printed piece either for the same reasons, and because the customer supplied proofs are not calibrated to our presses.

Right Of Refusal

We reserve the right to refuse service or products to any person or organization.

Turnaround Time

Although we make every possible effort to turn jobs around in the estimated times offered, your job may require more time due to unforeseeable or uncontrollable circumstances or finishing services added onto the job. We will not credit customers if a job runs past the estimated turnaround time.
TURNAROUND TIMES ARE AN ESTIMATE, NOT A GUARANTEE!
