Acceptance of our quotation or the placing of an order shall constitute acceptance of these terms and conditions in their entirety, unless specifically varied in writing by Printing Connection, Inc..
2. QUOTATIONS AND ESTIMATES
(a) Quotations are based on current costs of materials and services and unless otherwise agreed in writing, are subject to amendment to meet any rise in such costs between the date of quotation and the date of execution, except tat such quotation shall be held firm for 30 days.
(b) When quotations are based on specifications, roughs, layouts, samples, dummies or printed, typewritten or other good copy provided by the client, any extra work or cost caused by any variation by the customer of their original instructions or specifications shall be additionally chargeable.
(c) Upon acceptance by the customer, Printing Connection, Inc.’s written quotation shall be deemed to have interpreted the customer's instructions correctly.
3. YOUR SUBMISSIONS
Order processing will begin when the following items are complete:
• Press-ready files are received
• Payment is processed
If requested by the customer, proofs of work will be submitted for the customer's approval prior to printing. No liability is accepted for any errors not corrected by the customer on proofs.
To ensure proper colour matching customer must purchase a press match proof. Customer supplied proofs are not acceptable as they are not calibrated to our presses. Jobs without proofs will be printed following generally recognized industry standards. Because of differences in equipment, processing, proofing substrates, paper, inks, pigments, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and completed job shall constitute acceptable delivery. Please note that your monitor's calibration affects what you see on your screen. The colors on the printed products may differ from what you see on your screen. Please keep in mind that while we will try our best to match proofs, Printing Connection, Inc. DOES NOT GUARANTEE COLOR MATCHING.
5. PRINT/DELIVERY SCHEDULE
The delivery schedule comes into effect once a proof is approved. If the client chooses "no proof required", then the delivery schedule comes into effect once the payment is received. Turnaround time does not include shipping. Be sure to factor this into your schedule.
6. OUTSIDE WORK
Where the performance of any contract with the customer requires Printing Connection, Inc. to obtain goods or services from a third party, the contract between us and the customer shall incorporate, and shall be subject to, the conditions of supply of such goods and services and the customer shall bear the full cost of such goods or services.
8. SPECIAL PURCHASES
Dies, knives, engravings or other special materials purchased for the execution of the customer's order shall be chargeable, but remain the property of Printing Connection, Inc..
9. OVERS & UNDERS
Printing Connection, Inc. makes every effort to deliver work in the precise quantity ordered, but the customer agrees to make no claim for damages in the event that the quantity delivered is within 10 percent of the quantity specified; credit shall be given for such shortfall and such excess shall not be chargeable.
All claims in respect of work, or the quality or quantity thereof, shall be made in writing within 14 days of receipt by the customer. In the absence of such a claim, the work shall be deemed to have been received, checked and accepted as fully complying with the customer's specifications.
All funds are taken in USD. Payment must be received before an order is processed.
12. REFUSAL OF SERVICE
We reserve the right to refuse any order at our own discretion (e.g., due to inappropriate or distasteful subject matter.)
13. FILE ERRORS
Printing Connection, Inc. will contact the customer when errors are detected in their supplied files. The customer will be alerted to the issue and given the following choices:
• Resubmit a corrected file (this will be treated as a new order). A $15 processing fee will be charged.
• Request an estimate for Printing Connection, Inc. to correct the files. This action will require additional payment before the order will proceed.
14. REFUNDS AND CANCELLATIONS
Partial refunds are available on orders that have begun processing but have not gone to press. A refund will be given for the portion of work that has not yet been completed. A $15 processing fee will be charged in such cases. For orders already on the press, no refunds will be given. To cancel an order, call us at xxx-xxx-xxxx. You will need to provide your order number, which can be found in the subject line of the email that you received after placing your order.
Printing Connection, Inc. shall not be liable for indirect or consequential loss, or for any loss to the customer arising from third party claims or delay of delivery.
16. FORCE MAJEURE
Contracts and deliveries may be suspended or delayed in the event of any strike, lockout, trade dispute, fire, tempest, breakdown, riot, theft, crime, civic disturbance, war, legislation, force majeure, the inability of the printer to procure essential materials due to any of the foregiong causes, or any other occurrence beyond our control preventing or retarding performance of the contract or delivery of work, and no responsibility shall attach to Printing Connection, Inc.. for any delay, default, loss or damage resulting from any of the above causes, and the customer undertakes not to bring any claim for damages against Printing Connection, Inc.. arising from any circumstance described herein.
17. GENERAL LIEN
In respect of all unpaid debts due from the customer, Printing Connection, Inc.. shall have a general lien on all goods and property in our possession and shall be entitled on the expiration of 14 days (or such other period as we may stipulate) notice to the customer, to dispose of such goods or property as we think fit and to apply the proceeds towards satisfaction of such debts. Such lien shall further extend to all goods produced or supplied by us wheresoever located, for which payment has not been received, and we shall be entitled to enter the customer's premises and repossess such work and dispose of it, applying the proceeds towards satisfaction of the debt, without that such repossession and or disposition shall annul or diminish in any degree the obligation of the customer with respect to remaining unpaid amounts, nor mitigate the rights and recourse of the printer under law for full recovery of said debts and costs of collection thereof.
Notwithstanding that Printing Connection, Inc.. may agree with respect to any specific transaction, either expressly or by implication, to waive one or more of these terms and conditions, such agreement shall in no way release the customer from the other terms, conditions, obligations or requirements set out herein.

We reserve the right to update and revise these Shipping Policy and Guidelines without prior notice to reflect changes in our policies, services and/or in response to our customers' feedback. When we do make changes to this Policy we will revise the "last updated" date at the top of this Policy. Please make sure that you review it frequently as anytime you place an order with Printing Connection, Inc. the current Shipping Policy and Guidelines will apply.
If your order is produced at Printing Connection, Inc., you may be able to either pick up your order or take advantage of our local delivery service option.
Printing Connection, Inc. ("Printing Connection, Inc.") ships all packages for delivery ordered online via UPS. Our standard U.S. shipping level (“Standard Shipping/Shipments”) is UPS Ground, but you may elect to use an alternative method of UPS shipping during the ordering process. Our shipping charges are based on the rates charged by the carrier as they may vary from time to time. Saturday delivery is available at an additional charge. Please contact our shipping department for more information regarding Saturday shipping. All orders are shipped FOB shipping point, which means ownership and risk of loss transfers to you once we deliver the print products to our shipping carrier. If you elect to pick up your order, ownership and risk of loss will transfer to you when you (or your agent) take possession of the order. If you take advantage of our local delivery option, ownership and risk of loss will transfer to you when you (or your agent) accept delivery, or when we leave the order if delivery without a signature has been authorized.
Unfortunately, we cannot use a customer's personal account with UPS, Purolator or any other carrier.
The estimated delivery time for any given shipment will vary according to the method of shipping you choose and/or by your location. Please note that although we make an effort to meet the estimated delivery times, because we use a third party shipping service we are not able to guaranty a specific delivery date or time. If you have time sensitive materials, please make sure you allow sufficient time to receive your order.
If you select a shipping service level other than Standard Shipping the delivery date will correspond to the service level chosen. Again, the delivery date does not include the day of pickup. If you select 3 Day Select, 2nd Air Day, Next Day Air, or some other UPS special delivery level (or their equivalent) this means that UPS is guaranteeing its shipping service within the time period selected. Note that only these special accelerated shipping services are guaranteed by UPS within the UPS time frames given. Standard Shipping is NOT guaranteed to deliver within the estimated arrival time.
Your estimated shipping time is in addition to the production time you selected during the order process. Add the production time and estimated shipping time together to estimate the actual delivery date. If you need your package sooner, contact us at 951-351-9437 during the ordering process. If you have dated or time sensitive material please plan accordingly; leave plenty of time to receive your order. We strongly suggest that in such circumstances you do not rely on Standard Shipping delivery. Printing Connection, Inc. will not ship to a destination outside of the United States.
We reserve the right to change the site initially allocated to the production of your order. (For example, equipment failure, natural disaster or order volumes may impact our production capacity requirements necessitating a change in site). Should this happen, you may be informed by email and it may impact your estimated shipping time, etc.
Our shipping process cannot generally accommodate the aggregation of multiple print orders for shipping purposes; each discrete product ordered will be shipped separately, will require a separate shipping charge, will have its own estimated shipping time, and may arrive on a different date to other products you have ordered. If you are ordering multiple products, it is possible that these may also require different production times and the estimated shipping time may vary for each separate product. If you are ordering a specially priced package of products, there will be only one shipping charge incurred, however, the individual products may be shipped separately and arrive at different times. If the receipt of multiple products is time sensitive, please plan accordingly as we cannot guaranty that multiple product orders will be received on the same delivery date.
