Subject to the specific terms of any special delivery service, delivery can take place at any time of the day and must be accepted at any time between 8am to 8pm, unless agreed otherwise.
If you do not take delivery of the Goods or collect the Goods we may, at our discretion and without prejudice to any other rights:
Store or arrange for the storage of the Goods and will charge you for all associated cost and expenses including, but not limited to, transportation, storage and insurance; and/or
- Make arrangements for the delivery of the Goods and will charge you for the cost of such redelivery.
If redelivery is not possible as set out above, you must collect the Goods from our premises and will be notified of this. We can charge you for all associated costs including, but not limited to, storage and insurance.
Unless otherwise agreed in writing, completion and delivery times are a guide only and, whilst we will make every effort to adhere to proposed timescales, time is not of the essence in any contract with you. We will not be liable for any delay in delivery of the Goods that is caused by a circumstance beyond our control or your failure to provide us with adequate delivery instructions or any other instructions that are relevant to the supply of the Goods.
It shall be the duty of the Customer immediately on delivery of the goods to make an inspection of them in every respect and to satisfy themselves of their adherence to specification.
We are entitled to withhold delivery of Goods if you are not in good payment standing with us or are subject to a pre-payment agreement.
Claims arising from damage or partial loss of goods in transit must be made in writing to us within ten working days of delivery. If no claim is made within the above stipulated time limits the goods delivered shall be deemed to be in all respects in accordance with the Order.
We will invoice you for the Goods either:
On or at any time after the order of the Goods has been placed; or
Where the Goods are to be collected by you, at any time after we have notified you that the Goods are ready for collection.
We will not attempt to deliver Goods until we have received payment unless agreed otherwise or according to any credit terms agreed by us.
Payments can be made via card payments over the telephone, by bank transfer or through the payment page on our website.
Both parties must pay all amounts due under these Terms and Conditions in full without any deduction or withholding except as required by law and neither party is entitled to assert any credit, set-off or counterclaim against the other in order to justify withholding payment of any such amount in whole or in part.
If you have been extended credit terms, payments are due within thirty days from the date of invoice unless otherwise agreed with us in writing.
Credit facilities may be granted to applicants who satisfy our criteria. Where facilities are granted, we reserve the right to withdraw them at any time, without having to give our reasons and, in such a case, all outstanding invoices become due and payable immediately.
No responsibility will be accepted by us for any errors in the final goods where proofs submitted for approval are not corrected or for any errors in the final Goods where a proof has not been requested in advance.
Customer’s corrections, including alterations to files and the cost of additional samples necessitated by such corrections, will be subject to an additional charge advised at the time the work is submitted by the Customer.
In the case of colour work on the inside pages and on the cover, we will endeavour to match the proof and previously printed copies, however, you accept that there may be variation resulting from the nature of the digital print process and factors outside our control.
In some cases, it may be necessary to provide proof copies that were ordered in PUR to be supplied as EVA perfect bound books.
Acceptance of Goods and Manufacturing Tolerances
During the manufacturing process, we use various printing machines, as such colour accuracy may not be possible to 100% and some variations may occur between the proof copy and from previous printing runs. We will always do our best to match the colours but you accept that it is not always possible. Colour variations will be seen as acceptable and we cannot be held liable for any colours that do not match the proof copy (within reason) or your previous print run. We will do our best to colour match your PDF file to our colour calibrated screen if there is no proof or previous print run to work with.
All artwork must be supplied to our artwork guidelines which can be read here. If your artwork does not match the guidelines then we may charge an additional fee to cover the time spent in making your artwork correct for print. The cost for any alterations will be given to you before we amend any files and to give you a chance to amend them to re-send.
While we do everything we can to ensure accurate reproduction of artwork, due to the nature of digital printing, we cannot be held liable for any movement in printing and binding. We work within a tolerance of 3mm and cannot be held liable if the reproduction of your files does not match the PDF artwork by 3mm or under this includes the spine of your book.
Where possible we make sure any problems that may arise in the manufacturing process will be highlighted to you, however, this is not always possible and a proof copy should always be ordered if you are unsure of your artwork.
If the work is defective so that you reject it, you must advise us within twenty working days of delivery, failing which you will be deemed to have accepted the work.
All goods must be fully inspected on delivery and if goods are deemed to be damaged or in boxes that are damaged they should be signed for as such.
If you identify any damages, you must inform us in writing within 7 days of delivery, providing details and where possible images.
You may cancel the order prior to us sending your work to print without being charged unless we have had to order in specific stock to fulfil the order.
If you cancel an order after we have commenced work on it, you shall be charged the full order value or a lower amount as we may (in our sole discretion) determine.
If an order has been cancelled after a proof copy has been produced, we will charge you for the cost of the proof copy.
We reserve the right to charge the amount of any value-added tax payable whether or not included in the estimate/quote. This will be included in your invoice.
Variations in Quantity
Every endeavour will be made to deliver the correct quantity ordered. However, some variation is inherent in the print process and it is understood and accepted as reasonable that minor variations are immaterial and that we shall have no liability in respect to such variations.
Estimates are conditional upon margins of 5% for work being allowed for overs or unders the same to be charged or deducted unless otherwise agreed in writing.
We shall not be required to print any matter which in our opinion is or may be of an illegal or libellous nature or an infringement of the proprietary or other rights of any third party.
You shall indemnify and hold us harmless against all claims, demands, costs, expenses (including but not limited to legal costs and disbursements), losses and damages arising from or suffered or incurred by reason of the work it is required to produce pursuant to a customer order being or alleged to be defamatory.
Nothing in these Terms shall affect your consumer rights.
Quotes are based on the current costs of production and materials and are subject to amendment by us on or at any time after acceptance to meet any rise or fall in such costs.
All quotes are valid for 30 days - after 30 days the quote will be generated from our online price calculator.
We may use any artwork or printing produced by ourselves for the purpose of promoting ImprintDigital.com. If you do not want us to use your artwork please let us know.
Material supplied or specified by the buyer
Quantities of materials supplied shall be adequate to cover normal spoilage. Any costs incurred as a result of shortages, including re-starting jobs, duplicating masters etc will be charged in addition to the estimated price.
We may reject any paper or other materials supplied or specified by you which we consider unsuitable for production.
We shall maintain a copy of all Electronic Files provided by you to us.
We shall not be responsible for checking the accuracy of supplied input from any Electronic File unless otherwise agreed in writing.
Without prejudice to the clause above, if an Electronic File is not suitable for outputting on equipment normally adequate for such purposes without adjustment or other corrective action we may either reject the file or charge for any additional costs incurred in taking such corrective action in each case with prejudice to its rights to payment for work done and materials purchased.
Material & equipment supplied or specified by the seller
Any material owned or supplied by or on behalf of us in the production of any part of the Goods shall remain our exclusive property.
We reserve the right to retain Electronic Files of printed materials.
We will try our utmost to obtain the best possible colour reproduction on your work but variations are inherent in the print process and it is understood and accepted as reasonable that we can not guarantee an exact match in colour.
Circumstances beyond the control of either party
Neither party shall be liable for any failure or delay in performing their obligations where such failure or delay results from any cause that is beyond the reasonable control of that party. Such causes include, but are not limited to; power failure, internet service provider failure, industrial action, civil unrest, fire, flood, storms, earthquakes, acts of terrorism, acts of war, governmental action or any other event that is beyond the control of the party in question.
