Terms and Conditions
Artwork Files Our pre-press department checks all submitted artwork files before printing, but you are still 100% responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and we encourage you to proofread all files carefully before submitting to BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM. BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted documents, graphics (misspelling, punctuation, fonts, cuts, folds, marks, etc.), nor for any distortions, pixelations or color shifts. All artwork must be provided as specified in our file preparation guidelines (CMYK color mode, minimum of 300 dpi resolution, bleeds, orientation, etc.). You have full legal liability for the content of your artwork files (also see below, Indemnification). We reserve the right to refuse an order without disclosing a reason. It is your responsibility to maintain a copy of your original files. While we safeguard your files we do not take any responsibility for loss or damage of your files. You understand and agree that we license photos and other artwork (hereinafter referred to as “Images”) from various Licensors and/or Copyright Holders. We are licensed to use the Images as permitted in their respective license(s). These Images are used in our design online templates (hereinafter referred to as “Templates”). You are required to comply with the limitations on how the Images and/or Templates can be used.
YOU MAY NOT:
Use Images and/or Templates together with pornographic, defamatory, or unlawful content or in such a manner that it infringes upon any BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM or third party's trademark or intellectual property rights. Use the Images and/or Templates in a way that places any person depicted in the Images and/or Templates in a bad light or in a way that they may find offensive - this includes, but is not limited to, the use of Images a) in pornography; b) in advertisements or promotional materials for tobacco products; c) in advertisements or promotional materials for adult entertainment clubs or similar venues, or for escort services; d) in advertisements or promotional materials for dating services; e) in connection with political endorsements; f) in advertisements or promotional materials for pharmaceutical or healthcare, herbal or medical products, including, but not limited to dietary supplements, digestive aids, herbal supplements, personal hygiene or birth control products, if the use implies that the depicted person engages in any immoral or illegal activity or suffers from a physical or mental infirmity, ailment or condition. Use any Images and/or Templates (in whole or in part) as a trademark, service mark, logo, or other indication of origin, or as part thereof, or to otherwise endorse or imply the endorsement of any goods and/or services. Falsely represent, expressly or by way of reasonable implication, that you or a person other than the copyright holder(s) of the Images and/or Templates created the Images and/or Templates.
We are required to provide Licensors and/or Copyright Holders with the names of the users who access Images and/or Templates. By using BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM, you are also confirming that you understand this and are granting us permission to provide your name and contact information as may be required. In the event that anything in this section contradicts any of the agreements or licenses we have with Licensors and/or Copyright Holders regarding the Images and/or Templates, the terms of those agreements shall govern.
If you use Images and/or Templates in any way prohibited above or in any agreements between us and Licensors and/or Copyright Holders it will result in liability in accordance with the terms of our agreements with Licensors and/or Copyright Holders.
Unless otherwise noted, all written and/or other materials that are part of BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM, including information, images, illustrations, designs, icons, data, software, photographs, graphs, videos, typefaces, graphics, music, sounds and other material (collectively "Content"), are protected by copyright, trademark, patent or other proprietary rights, and these rights are valid and protected in all forms, media and technologies existing now or developed in the future. Except as expressly authorized or licensed, you may not copy, modify, remove, delete, augment, add to, publish, transmit, participate in the transfer or sale, lease or rental of, create derivative works from or in any way exploit any of the Content, in whole or in part. All Content is copyrighted as a collective work under the U.S. and international copyright laws, and we own, to the fullest extent allowed by such laws, the copyright in the selection, coordination, arrangement, and enhancement of all Content. Our trademarks, logos and other trademarks on BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM are the property of their respective owners and are owned by, licensed to, or, where required, used with our permission, and, as such, may not be reproduced, copied, or manipulated in any manner without the express, written approval of the trademark owner.
Because of inherent limitations with the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements, the accuracy of color reproduction is not guaranteed. The same applies, for technical reasons, to color comparison of different print runs. By placing an order with BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM you agree to this limitation. We will try our best to match the gradient density of each color, but we accept no responsibility for color variations between submitted files and the final printed piece. Under no circumstances will a reprint be honored for color variations that have occurred during the printing process.
If the order includes an online proof, it is the customer's responsibility to log in to their account and check their proof. We are not liable for delays in the order caused by customer's non-approval of the proof. The time we need to put the proof online will vary depending on our workload. An online proof is by no means an accurate color reproduction of your final printed piece but is the final opportunity for you to check the layout, bleeds, crops and final text. Electronic proofs do not show transparency and over print issues. Neither do they show color change from RGB or Pantone to CMYK. Screen proofs will predict design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color or density. Application of UV coating may effect or change the appearance of the printed colors. We are not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product. The proof must be treated as independent from the original submitted file and thoroughly reviewed prior to approval. It should be checked against the original file for possible errors in layout, copy, spacing, punctuation or image placement. Customer is fully responsible for all that is contained in the final approved proof.
Turnaround time begins after receipt of final proof approval. Final approval will only be accepted in written format. No verbal approvals will be accepted. If we are unable to print your files because they do not conform to our file requirements, production will be delayed. Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, as well as shipping are not considered when calculating turnaround times. Although we make every possible effort to turn jobs around in the estimated times offered, we will not credit customers if a job runs past the estimated turnaround time. TURNAROUND TIMES ARE AN ESTIMATE, NOT A GUARANTEE! In case of delay caused by technical difficulty, rush charges will be refunded or waived where applicable. However, technical difficulty will not justify an order cancellation.
When choosing a shipping option, please remember that the estimated shipping transit time is based on the number of business days in transit and does not include weekends, holidays or the day the package is picked up by USPS, UPS or FedEx. For example, a product with a shipping time of 1-3 days which is picked up on Thursday would be delivered Friday, Monday, or Tuesday. Shipping transit times vary, and BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive a job on time. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc. Our responsibility is limited to preparing your printing order and delivering it to USPS, UPS or FedEx for shipping. BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM is not liable for damages which occur in shipping. If there is an issue with your order and we are found to be at fault, we will only accept liability up to the cost of goods and services provided. This does not include any postage cost. By using our services, you release us from liability for any loss of revenue, business or implied damages.
BLACKWARRIORPRINTING.COM will normally deliver the exact quantity of goods. The generally accepted variance is plus or minus 10%. In the event of a significant underrun, we may bill only for the actual quantity delivered. (If no such claim is made in 5 business days after delivery, we will understand that the job has been accepted.)
Each order is unique and has no re-sale value. ALL SALES ARE FINAL.
When you receive a product that you perceive to have a defect or are unsatisfied with the order please contact us immediately. (If no such claim is made in 5 business days after delivery, we will understand that the job has been accepted.) You will then be asked to take photos of 5-10 defective copies and send them to us for review. If we verify that we made an error, we will re-print the order as soon as possible.
