  1. COLOR PROOFING AND MATCHING

Where appropriate, the customer will be provided with a hard-copy proof of their job which must be approved by signature prior to printing. Some variations in the final colour, paper stock and finish may occur due to the differences of digital and press printing processes. A reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job is expected, unavoidable and shall constitute an acceptable delivery.

The Technology Centre is not liable for color matching or ink density on screen proofs approved by the customers. Screen proofs will predict design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color or density. While The Technology Centre will try it’s best to match the gradient density of each color , The Technology Centre is not liable for the final appearance of a color. Application of UV Coating may effect or change the appearance of the printed colors.

The Technology Centre will make every effort to produce a reasonable representation based on materials supplied by the customer; however, The Technology Centre does not guarantee color matching. Unfortunately time to time there is a misrepresentation of color due to soft proofing because of calibration of one monitor to another.

  1. ENVELOPES AND LETTERHEAD PAPER EFFECT IN COLOR.

Please note that because our letterhead and envelope paper stock is “uncoated”, we recommend you not use colors with high color density. By this we mean dark colors (black, purple, blue, brown, etc.). Dark colors tend to get soaked into the paper if their color values are too high. For best results, use light colors.

  1. ORDER CANCELLATION

Orders are eligible for cancellation upon request via email until the earlier of 8 hours order or commencement of production, subject to applicable cancellation charges. A credit voucher is issued with a value equal to the cancelled job(s). The voucher will expire six months after initial activation. If job is cancelled charges for any labor hours (proof, graphics design, etc.) or administrative fees (credit cards fees, etc.) will be subtracted from your voucher. Minimum cancellation charge is $50 plus any credit card charges. Once the order has been placed successfully, No Refunds are issued for logo and graphic design services.
