Printing Agreement

Our upmost desire is to please our clients. One way to accomplish this goal is to make clear our basic understandings when doing business with each other.

Outlined below are the terms of the service between Ignition Graphix and every client; for any given project with or without a signed contract:

1. Estimates

An estimate not accepted within 30 days may be changed by Ignition Graphix LLC. Estimates are based on the accuracy of the specifications provided. Ignition Graphix LLC can re-quote a job at time of submission if the files and/ or materials do not conform to the information on which the original quotation was based.

2. Proofs

Ignition Graphix LLC will submit layouts as PDF files for your review and approval. Corrections will be returned to Ignition Graphix LLC on a “master proof ” marked “OK” or a customer email approval. Until the signed approval is received, no additional work will be performed. Ignition Graphix LLC will not be responsible for undetected production errors if: proofs are not required by the customer, the work is printed per the customers O.K. and requests for changes are communicated verbally. Additionally, the customer will be liable for the proofing process and time invested once deciding to use Ignition Graphix LLC and receiving a proof. If Ignition Graphix LLC writes up the job and starts the proofing process, the customer is committed to that proof. If the job is canceled for any reason: the customer will incur a $50.00 proofing fee and will have that deducted from the refund on the initial down payment. A customer is entitled to their full refund, but will be liable for time spent and the proof itself.

Color Proofing

Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job is to be expected. When a variation of this kind occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance. Ignition Graphix LLC will always do our best to reasonably color match re-prints to prior jobs.

3. Digital Files or Images

It is the customer’s responsibility to maintain a copy of the original file. Ignition Graphix LLC is not responsible for accidental damage to media supplied by the customer or for the accuracy of furnished input or promises made about Ignition Graphix LLC’s ability to workwith jobs submitted in digital format, and no liability is assumed for problems that may arise. Any additional translating, editing, or programming needed to utilize customer-supplied files will be charged at prevailing rates.

Alterations/Corrections: Customer alterations include all work performed in addition to the original specifications. All such work will be charged at Ignition Graphix LLC’s current graphic design hourly rates.

4. Paper Prices

Estimates and any schedules submitted are subject to change due to either price or availability of paper. Price of a finished job will be based on the cost of paper at the time of shipment of paper. Most grades of paper are available on the terms of “price prevailing at time of shipment”. Scheduled deliveries of paper are subject to change at the discretion of paper mills.

5. Production Schedules

Production schedules will be established and followed by both the customer and Ignition Graphix LLC. In the event that production schedules are not adhered to by the customer, delivery dates will be subject to renegotiation. In our desire to serve our customers needs we offer the following turnaround schedules for printing and delivery:

24 Hour 1-2 Day 3-5 Day
40% increase from base estimate 25% increase from base estimate Standard base estimate

The above turnaround schedule is intended as a base rate for short run digital production. Th e turnaround schedule may need to be adapted due to size, scope, assembly and/or complexity of a given project. For example: “24 Hour” turnaround may not be physically possible due to the stages of production but that markup may still be warranted to accomodate a rushed timeline. Ignition Graphix reserves the right to adapt the turnaround schedule of fees as dictated by the variables that make up any given project. There will be no liability or penalty for delays due to state of war, riot, civil disorder, fi re, strikes, accidents, action of government or civil authority, weather events, acts of God, or other causes beyond the control of Ignition Graphix LLC. In such cases, schedules will be extended by an amount of time equal to delay incurred.

6. Payment of Fees

Fees to Ignition Graphix LLC are due and payable before production begins (unless otherwise noted in a contract or agreed upon before project initiation). Files may be delivered to the client on disk and / or attached to an e-mail message. Final high-resolution files will be supplied to the client only after payment in full has been received.

 

7. Terms / Claims / Liens

Unless specified in writing to the contrary, payment in full is expected before production will begin on a project. Claims for defects, damages, or shortages must be made by the customer in writing no later than 10 calendar days after delivery. If no such claim is made, Ignition Graphix LLC and the customer will understand that the job has been accepted. By accepting the job, the customer acknowledges that Ignition Graphix LLC’s performance has fully satisfied all terms, conditions, and specifications. Ignition Graphix LLC’s liability will be limited to the quoted cost of defective goods, without additional liability for special or consequential damages. As security for payment of any sum due under the terms of an agreement, Ignition Graphix LLC has the right to hold and place a lien on all customer property in Ignition Graphix LLC’s possession. This right applies even if credit has been extended, notes have been accepted, trade acceptances have been made, or payment has been guaranteed. If payment is not made, the customer is liable for all collection costs incurred.

The client represents to Ignition Graphix, LLC and unconditionally guarantees that any elements of text, graphics, photos, designs, trademarks, or other artwork furnished to Ignition Graphix LLC for inclusion in design are owned by the client, or that the client has permission from the rightful owner to use each of these elements, and will hold harmless, protect, and defend Ignition Graphix LLC and its subcontractors from any claim or suit arising from the use of such elements furnished by the client.
