CUSTOMER SUPPLIED HARDCOPY PROOFS
For each job, the customer may be required to supply a color hardcopy proof of their job when placing their order. If the job is two-sided, folds or binds (like brochures and catalogs), then a working model (mockup) of the job is required to indicate backup, page orientation, folding, binding and page order/assignment. We are not responsible for any such errors if a working model is not provided prior to proofing. We are also not responsible for any and all errors in the customer’s printing job if they select the “Run as Is. No Proof” option.
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 art/proof may not closely match our proofs or the printed piece either for the same reasons, and because the customer supplied art/proofs are not calibrated to our presses.
RIGHT OF REFUSAL
We reserve the right to refuse service or products to any person or organization
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.
