Order Approval and Change Orders
You are responsible for final proof and layout approval of your artwork prior to sending your job to press. Any jobs that have been approved and sent to press cannot be altered or changed due to the automated process which results from the “send to press” action.
Turnaround times begin only when the following criteria have been met:
1. Your order has been entered, processed and the transaction approved;
2. You have uploaded your artwork for your job;
3. You have viewed and approved your proof; and
4. You have clicked the “send to press” button, thus sending your job to press.
All turnaround times are based on business days: Monday through Friday excluding PrintPlace.com’s Official Non Productions Dates (see below). All jobs with standard turnaround times (2-10 days) submitted to production before 12:00 AM (CT) will begin production the following business day. Visit http://www.printplace.com/static/Online-Printing-Turnaround-Times.aspx for an illustrated turnaround time chart.
EXAMPLE: If a job with a three (3) day turn-around is submitted, approved, and sent to press on Monday before 12:00 AM (CT), Day 1 of the turnaround time is the following business day and the job will ship out on Thursday of that same week.
PrintPlace.com strives to ship every job on time and provides its customers with an unparalleled on-time shipping guarantee. If we ship your job late, PrintPlace.com will upgrade your shipping method at no additional cost to you in order to meet the arrival date you would have had if your order were to have shipped on time. If this is not possible (for instance, if you have 1 day turn with overnight shipping), PrintPlace.com will refund you the difference between the cost of the turnaround time you ordered and the cost of the actual turnaround time. This guarantee does not apply to jobs where the original shipping date has been recalculated due to a job being placed on hold for Suspect Art or other delays caused by you. In such case, you may upgrade the shipping method prior to the job actually shipping at your own expense.
Cancellation of a job or entire order based on turnaround time is permitted only if a PrintPlace.com Customer Service Supervisor agrees to such terms in writing during the order entry process. If you have a time-sensitive job, please be sure to notify Customer Service at or prior to the time your order is placed.
Official PrintPlace.com Non-Production Dates:
New Years Day - Jan 1
Memorial Day - Last Monday in May
Independence Day - July 4th
Labor Day - First Monday in September
Thanksgiving - 4th Thursday & Friday in November
Christmas - December 25th
After you have approved your proof and sent your job to press, PrintPlace.com’s quality control personnel may, but are not required to, stop your job if they believe your job contains “Suspect Art” i.e. artwork that has defects such as low resolution. In the event your job is suspended for Suspect Art, you will receive an email message notifying you of this fact, and your job will be put on hold until you: (1) re-submit and re-approve new art; or (2) send the job to press as-is. While a job is on hold in this manner, the production clock is on hold. PrintPlace.com is not responsible for expediting your order if time is lost as a result of your failure to meet production design requirements. Note: Quality control personnel will not review your submitted art if you choose “No Art Check” in the checkout process. In such event, your job will be printed as is and PrintPlace.com will not be responsible for the quality of the printed job.
Gang Run Printing
To help lower your cost of printing, PrintPlace.com may print several jobs together, known in the industry as “gang run printing.” All gang run printing is subject to a 10% color variance. If your job is color critical, we recommend that you order a hard copy proof to ensure color matching. It is your responsibility to determine if your job is color critical prior to placing your order.
Hard Copy Proofs
If you choose to order a hard copy proof, it will be mailed the day after you approve your artwork. The time it takes for a Member to receive and approve a color proof does not in the production calendar. After you have received and reviewed your hard copy proof, you must log-in to your account and click the “send to press” button to indicate your approval of your proof and begin the production process. Production of a job does not begin until you complete these steps.
The hard copy proof is printed on a substrate (i.e. special proofing paper) which is different than the final paper stock used in the final printing process. The hard copy proof is color-matched to a four color process on coated papers and does not simulate other stocks such as uncoated paper. Accordingly, while a hard copy proof will visually show color and guarantees a reasonable likeness to the final printed pieces, variation between the hard copy proof and the final printed piece should be expected. If a variation occurs due to these circumstances, the resulting printed job is considered acceptable.
If you submit a job and do not request a hard copy proof, your job(s) will be printed as is. PrintPlace.com will not be liable for color variation between a soft-proof and the final printed product.
It is your responsibility to review your order prior to sending it to press. PrintPlace.com will not be responsible or liable for:
Art Resolution Requirements
You must provide at minimum 300 dpi high resolution images suited for offset printing. Artwork submitted lower than 300 dpi will likely result in a poor or low quality printed image. PrintPlace.com is not liable for fuzzy or pixilated printed images resulting from low resolution artwork.
Bleed and Caution Margin Requirements
The edge of final printed piece is called the trim line. If you want your image to extend to the trim line, you must include a 1/8” symmetrical bleed (margin) for such designs. You must exclude important content from the caution zone, defined by the inner 1/8” margin to the trim line. PrintPlace.com allows for a 1/16 tolerance for error with each bindery process, therefore adherence to bleed and caution margins are important to image fidelity. PrintPlace.com recommends that your download the template for the product you are ordering and refer to the “setting up your file” pdf provided on the Website. If at any point you are unsure of the design requirements for your artwork, please contact Customer Service for assistance; they’re there to help!
Backing Up Artwork On Two Sided Works
You must upload artwork so that the finished piece backs up correctly. For flat, folded and die-cut work, excluding bound products, all pages are backed up head to head. The head of a page is defined by the top of the rendered proof and the bottom is called the foot (helpful hint: on a PrintPlace.com pdf proof, the head will always be indicated by the PrintPlace.com logo on top). The head of one side backs up to the head of the other page on two sided work. Printplace.com recommends that you always print laser proofs and back them up head to head to make a folding dummy, which will ensure your artwork is set up properly. You may need to rotate a page after proof review and resubmit art to ensure your pages will back up properly. If you need assistance backing up your artwork or verifying orientation of your artwork, please call Customer Service for assistance before sending your job to press.
All art submitted for bound product must be uploaded as a single, multi-page pdf file. The pages within your submitted pdf should be arranged and sorted in the same order as you want your finished printed product to appear. For example, a 28-page booklet or calendar pdf: page 1 = outside front cover; page 2 = inside front cover; page 3-26 = subsequent pages; page 27 = inside back cover; page 28 = outside back cover. PrintPlace.com will not be able to proceed with your bound product order unless these minimum requirements are met.
Color Space Conversion
For predictable and accurate color results PrintPlace.com recommends that you always use CMYK color space when designing your artwork. PrintPlace.com is not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes. For assistance in creating your artwork in CMYK color mode, please contact Customer Service.
Full color jobs that contain large solid areas of black ink should have the black set up as CMYK Rich Black (formula: 60, 40, 40, 100). PrintPlace.com will not be liable for printing a consistent, solid and rich black if artwork is not set up to this specification. Please note: Rich Black should not be used for text.
You must notify PrintPlace.com within 3 business days of order delivery to report any defects discovered in your delivered product. In the event a defect in your printed product, 100% of the product should be returned to PrintPlace.com at your expense within 10 business days from the date of delivery. Should the claim be approved by PrintPlace.com, a reprint at no cost will be shipped to you using the original shipping method.
Refunds and Cancellations
All sales are final. Cancellations and full refunds are available only if you have not: (1) uploaded any artwork to the Website; (2) submitted any artwork to Customer Service; and (3) sent your order to press. In the event you cancel your order prior to clicking “send to press”, PrintPlace.com will refund your purchase price less a $15 administrative and processing fee and any fees applicable to hard copy proofs, file repairs, and mailing list processing. For all order cancellations, you must contact PrintPlace.com Customer Service within 30 days of placing your order to request your refund. Refund requests made after 30 days, if approved by PrintPlace.com in its sole discretion, will be issued as a credit toward your next order.
Overuns and Underruns
Over-runs or under-runs will not exceed 5%. If a job is short, PrintPlace.com will prorate the missing quantity in the form of a credit toward future orders. If a job is short 250 pieces or more, PrintPlace.com may, in its discretion, reprint the missing amount.
Art File Retention and Access
PrintPlace.com will use reasonable efforts to maintain art files and PDF proofs uploaded to the Website for a reasonable period of time, not to exceed a year.
