EXACT PRINT QUANTITIES / UNDERS OVERS
Due to the nature of custom printing and finishing, spoilage is a normal part of every job. Sheets are wasted when setting up machines or when machines require additional calibration during production. We print extra sheets to account for spoilage. In most cases, we deliver more than the quantity sold. In some cases, more sheets than extras are used during setup or calibration, which results in delivery of fewer than the quantity sold.
Our policy is to commit to delivery within +- 5% of quantity sold. This means that a quantity sold of 1,000 units, for example, may result in delivery of 950 or as many as 1,050 units. This policy does not apply to large format products generally sold as single units, but rather to bulk printed products with qtys of 500 or more. In a case where quantity delivered falls below -5% of quantity sold, we invite our clients to request pro-rated refunds or credits.
The quality of our products is very important to us in maintaining great relationships with you, our valued customers. For this reason, we take quality issues very seriously. If you’re dissatisfied with the quality of your product or experience, we definitely want to know about it. If there’s a quality issue affecting your products, please let us know within 2 weeks of receiving it. We will then request the affected product, or a sample thereof be returned within 30 days in order to process your claim. Once a claim is approved, we will gladly issue either a credit to your account, or reprint to replace the affected quantity. (depending on your preference)

Our policy on design and service related projects $500 or more is that we require a 50% down payment up front, and remainder upon completion of the work or phase of project. In a multi-phase project, we require final approval and completion of the current phase prior to beginning a subsequent phase. Our policy on the sale of printed or other tangible goods is that we require 100% payment prior to beginning production. Many projects contain both products and services. In this case, the down payment comprises 50% of the services to be rendered, then upon approval design and prior to beginning production, remainder of payment is due in full.
