9. COLOR REPRODUCTION:
The color output of your print job is not guaranteed to match any other print order or previous printed copy because of differences in manufacturers’ equipment, including paper, inks, lighting, calibrations, and other conditions. Each computer monitor is calibrated differently; therefore, colors will slightly vary. We are not responsible for color variations between submitted files and the final printed piece. Under no circumstances will a reprint be honored for color variations that have occurred during the printing process. The closest color match is to choose PMS/Pantone specific printing colors for an additional cost.
10. PROOFING PROCESS:
If you request a digital proof, we will send an email notice shortly after receiving it into our production department. Please take note that an online proof is not an accurate color reproduction of the final printed piece but is a final opportunity for you to check the layout, bleeds, crops, and final text. The proofing process is very important to avoid any unintended issues. Approval of the correct and final print version is your sole responsibility. We are not responsible for any copy or design errors committed on edits once approved by you
