TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Thank you for choosing Custom Plastic Printers, Inc. d/b/a PlasticPrinters.com
(“PlasticPrinters” and also referred to us as “we”, “us” or “our”). To ensure
excellent service, our terms and conditions are set forth below. Using our
website, obtaining a quote or placing an order constitutes acceptance of these
terms. Therefore, if you have any questions, please contact us.
QUOTATIONS/ACCURACY OF SPECIFICATIONS
PlasticPrinters is pleased to provide you with a free quote. You must provide
accurate specifications because our quotes are based on the information
provided. If the order deviates from the original specifications (copy, artwork,
electronic files or other specifications), PlasticPrinters may need to review
and modify the quote. Art submittal specifications guidelines are located on our
web site. Project quotes are valid for up to 30 days unless PlasticPrinters
notifies you otherwise.
PROOF APPROVAL/COLOR PROOFING
PlasticPrinters provides a proof to give you the opportunity to ensure that your
project will meet your specifications. Please check all card specifications on
this proof form carefully because once a proof is approved, PlasticPrinters will
not accept any liability for errors found after the cards have been printed.
This proof indicates the spelling of the text matter, location of all type, and
colors. PlasticPrinters recommends that you double check the proof to make
certain the proof is accurate. If you wish to correct the proof, you may do so
and resubmit the files. If your changes require creative work by
PlasticPrinters, such as art creation, modification or proof revision or result
in PlasticPrinters issuing more than 2 proofs, additional charges apply.
PlasticPrinters will try to match colors as closely as possible to ensure
correctness and accuracy. However, because of standard variation in the printing
process, you agree that PlasticPrinters’ cannot guarantee a color match. In
addition, the proof does not represent actual colors because colors appear
different based on the equipment and viewing method. For example, colors may
appear different based on the type of computer, monitor or printer, and printing
on plastic is at 300 dots per inch (dpi) whereas printing on paper is at 1200
dpi which may also make the colors appear somewhat different. If you have
questions about color, please contact us or you can check the color further in a
PMS color chart or pantone book. In addition, if color accuracy is imperative,
you can request a press proof which shows how the color will actually print.
Although there is an additional fee for a press proof, this is the best way to
ensure the color matches your needs.
For your convenience, PlasticPrinters offers creative design services at the
highly competitive rate of $75 per hour. PlasticPrinters staff can create your
logo or other artwork. Creative design services are billed in 15 minute
increments. PlasticPrinters retains ownership rights of sketches, copies and all
other creative work we develop or provide until the work is paid for.
Upon receipt of project proof approval, PlasticPrinters will charge 100% of the
quoted project price. Unless PlasticPrinters’ accounting department has approved
credit terms, you must make full payment of the quoted project price before
PlasticPrinters will begin production. PlasticPrinters accepts Visa, MasterCard,
American Express, Discover or payment by PayPal, check, or wire transfer.
Upon completion of the project and, prior to shipping, you must pay for any
charges beyond those already paid for, such as charges for shipping, additional
taxes, creative services, rush fees and/or any sales tax payable for the

finance charge. If the account becomes past due, you also agree to pay
PlasticPrinters’ collection costs and fees associated with account collection,
whether litigation is initiated or not.

your property in PlasticPrinters’ possession. PlasticPrinters’ lien rights apply

followed with a confirming written communication by letter, fax or e-mail.
ELECTRONIC MANUSCRIPT OR IMAGE
You should always maintain a copy of all original files whether you submit your
file via email, CD or other format. PlasticPrinters is not responsible for
accidental damage to files or media that you supply or for the accuracy of
finished input or final output. We cannot evaluate our ability to work with your
digitally submitted files until we receive them and we cannot assume liability
for problems that may arise from your digitally submitted files.
PlasticPrinters begins production promptly upon receiving proof approval and
payment, unless the printing also requires personalization or other value added
steps that require you to provide files. For that work, PlasticPrinters will
begin production turnaround time when we receive complete and correct files.
PlasticPrinters production is typically 10 business days. Upon completion,
PlasticPrinters will promptly ship your order. PlasticPrinters is not liable for
delays due to state of war, riot, civil disorder, fire, strikes, accidents,
actions of government or civil authority, acts of God, or other causes outside

subject to our management and production approval. Contact us with your deadline
so we can help you determine whether to expedite production, shipping, or both.
PlasticPrinters will charge additional rush fees based on the production and
delivery time requested.
You may cancel an order prior to production or during production. However,
PlasticPrinters will be entitled to payment as determined by PlasticPrinters for
all work already performed.

PlasticPrinters can often print on materials you provide if the materials meet
our specifications, such as correct weight and thickness. All materials that you
provide must be usable without alteration or repair by PlasticPrinters. In
addition, PlasticPrinters is not responsible for discrepancies between delivery
tickets and actual counts or spoilage by PlasticPrinters.
OVER-RUNS AND UNDER-RUNS

given the printing process, some deviation in quantity can occur. Any over-runs

other personal or economic rights. However, PlasticPrinters may, in its sole
discretion, refuse to print content it views as illegal, libelous, scandalous,

directors, officers and employees against any and all losses, claims, damages,
legal fees, expenses or liabilities which PlasticPrinters may incur as a result

actual work. PlasticPrinters’ maximum liability for all damages, whether by
