Please Read Carefully Before Using This Website:
A. TERMS APPLICABLE TO ALL USERS
2. Changes To Terms
3. Payment Policy
All users of this site who order printing from The Print Authority online must pay for their order in full in advance by an approved method of payment. At this time, The Print Authority accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. No work will proceed on a job without advance payment. For projects in which the user desires to obtain either a hard copy proof or design assistance from The Print Authority, The Print Authority will place a hold on the user’s credit card in the amount of the design or proof order and will not process payment for the rest of the printing order until either the hard copy proof or the design proof has been approved by the user.
4. Refunds Policy.
All sales made through the Website are final. Full refunds are not provided once an order has been placed and work has been commenced on an order. If The Print Authority does issue a refund for an order for which work has not been commenced, there will be a non-refundable $15 cancellation charge.
The Print Authority cannot be responsible for any defects in artwork provided by the user, so please check artwork carefully before it is submitted. In the event that there is a problem with an order, The Print Authority will decide in it’s complete and total discretion whether the problem is a result of the user’s artwork or if it is the result of an error on the part of The Print Authority. If it is the result of an error on the part of The Print Authority, The Print Authority will redo the job at no charge to the user.
Each order is a contractual obligation between the user and The Print Authority. The user’s proof is the final proof of the artwork . In addition, the user is responsible for full and complete payment to The Print Authority. The Print Authority does not have any contractual obligations with any third parties who may be repurchasing the final product from the user.
5. Sales Tax Policy
The Print Authority charges sales tax on the Website for users who reside in the State of Tennessee. The Print Authority will collect sales tax from users in the State of Tennessee unless such users are otherwise tax exempt. Tax exempt users in the State of Tennessee must provide documentation satisfactory to The Print Authority prior to placing an order of tax exempt status. If a users in a state other than Tennessee places an order, The Print Authority will contact said user and will correct the charges so that the user pays sales tax in the state in which the order is to be delivered.
6. Proofing Policy
All customers of The Print Authority are required to review a proof prior to completion of the ordering process. Proofs will either be electronic via email or a similar means or hard copy. These proofs are a good representation (or a reasonable likeness) of the final printed product. However, the colors seen on electronic proofs will never match the final color of the piece exactly. Most clients are happy with the “pleasing color” offered by The Print Authority. If you need a more exact color proof than the on screen proof, please ask for a hard copy proof, which is available in most cases for no or a modest additional charge. If you request a hard copy proof, you will receive either an actual printed piece (in the case of digitally produced pieces) or a digital representation of the final job (in the case of offset printed pieces). These proofs are typically good representations of the final product. However, there can be some color variation between the proof and the final printed piece as there are some slight color variations from week to week on this equipment. Use of the Website indicates acceptance of the inherent limitations of on line color proofing and also indicates user understanding that there is some color variation between proof and final printed product.
Please be sure to check all parts of your proof carefully whether it is an on line proof or a hard copy proof. Please check for the accuracy of wording, placement, punctuation, fonts, font sizes, bleeds, and all other details of the job. The Print Authority is not responsible for proofs which are not reviewed properly.
7. Turnaround Policy
The Print Authority will make all reasonable efforts to meet a customer’s requested turnaround time listed when you place the order. However, turnaround times are different for products on which hard copy proofs are requested. In addition, The Print Authority is not responsible for acts of God, wars, strikes or other external events which cause paper shortages, power interruptions or material shortages or for situations in which our paper suppliers run out of a particular stock. Further, turnaround times cannot be set until customers proof the job, and turnaround times given are typically from the time of the final proof sign off until shipment is sent out. The user specifies the shipping method, and the shipping time must be added to the listed turnaround time.
If a product ships after the stated turnaround time, The Print Authority’s liability will be limited to a maximum of the shipping cost only, at it’s sole and complete discretion.
