CUSTOMER SUBMITTED ARTWORK:
All artwork or designs and images must be provided in CMYK format and with a minimum resolution of 300 DPI. Viveprinting is not responsible for any color changes that occur in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes. Viveprinting is also not responsible for images printed as fuzzy, distorted, or pixilated due to customer-provided artwork.
HARD COPY PROOFING
We offer Free hard copy proofing on all orders amounting over £5000(in case customer require). We required 100% upfront payment before the start of the process. In this case, we will ship the hard copy samples first for approval. Once the approval is made, we will ship the bulk order. Please note it is not possible to make any changes in the design and size once the process is started. In case of any changes, additional charges may apply based on the nature of the job. In case customer wants to add hard copy sampling in the order, the amount paid will be only for one time setup. In case of second sample, additional amount will be applicable. Hardcopy proofs/samples only cover the one-time production fee and non-refundable.
All print jobs require customer approval of the final artwork and job specification sheet. Once an order has been placed, final artwork proofs and a job specification sheet will be sent to customers via email. Customers are responsible for reviewing all details mentioned in the specification sheet, including but not limited to, delivery dates and production speed, and confirming that all customer requirements have been accurately noted. Viveprinting is not liable for any specifications or requirements beyond what is noted in the approved job specification sheet.
In addition, it is the responsibility of the customer to review the final artwork proof as proofreading is the responsibility of the customer. Due to the multiple ways that files are prepared, unplanned changes can occur. What is shown on the final proof represents what will be printed. Viveprinting strongly recommends that the proof be printed out at 100% to check actual position, spelling, and other design elements. Viveprinting will not be responsible for any design or spelling issues that are not identified by the customer and communicated to Viveprinting immediately. Upon approval, the design file and job specifications will be forwarded to the production department and printed as is.
Viveprinting is NOT LIABLE for errors in a printed product caused by errors in the approved artwork including but not limited to:
- Graphics orientation or placement and incorrect font usage
- Spelling, grammatical, and punctuation errors
- Wrong die cuts, slits or Incorrect or missing folds
- Incorrect finished product dimensions
Viveprinting is not responsible for any design issues that are not identified by the customer and communicated to Viveprinting before the commencement of the production process.
CUTTING & FINISHED SIZE LIMITATIONS:
Because of limitations inherent in all printing processes, the accuracy of cutting is not guaranteed, and by placing an order with us you agree to this limitation. All finished product sizes, including packaging, can have size variations of up to 1/8″ in any of the dimensions (height, width, and length) in either direction. Any cuts can also slide up, down, left, or right up to 1/8″ in either direction. Since any cuts may be off slightly by as much as 1/8″, folds, perforations, and score lines may also be off by as much as 1/8″. Under no circumstances will a refund or reprint be honored for cutting or size variations that have occurred during the printing process within these specifications.
Please note that the paper/card stock used for printing our products is not food grade. Any such requirement should be communicated in writing immediately. If you’ve any specific food grade requirements with regards to paper stock, please let us know before placing this order.
COLOR ACCURACY AND HARDCOPY PROOFS:
Viveprinting will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible. However, Viveprinting cannot guarantee color match and color density because of limitations in the printing processes, different properties of various printing surfaces, as well as neighbouring image ink requirements. The accuracy of colour reproductions is guaranteed to be within 90% of the final proof you approved. Please note that Viveprinting can only guarantee color reproduction for your print-ready files if you order a hardcopy proof for an additional charge. Please note that Viveprinting is not responsible for color variations between submitted print-ready images and the actual artwork or product they represent. Hardcopy proofs only cover the one-time production fee and non-refundable.
As per industry standards, viveprinting cannot guarantee colours using the CMYK printing process. If there is any specific colour requirement, the client should provide specific Pantone colours. This is the responsibility of the customer to inform upfront in case of any specific colour match is required.
Viveprinting is not liable for color matching or ink density on screen proofs approved by the customers. Screen proofs predict design layout, text accuracy, image proportion, and placement, but not color or density. Viveprinting will try to match the gradient density of each color in a duo-tone. Viveprinting is not liable for the final appearance of a duo-tone unless the customer orders a color match proof. In addition, the application of lamination or other coatings may affect or change the appearance of printed colors. Viveprinting is not liable for the final color appearance of laminated products.
