Uploaded Content Requirements
We strongly recommend that content uploaded to [AB] Designs Ltd for print fulfillment is:
At a minimum of 300 DPI at 1:1 ratio (or 100%). Content that does not meet this standard may experience print or images that are fuzzy, pixilated or otherwise distorted for which [AB] Designs Ltd does not accept any responsibility. We reserve the right to reject content that does not meet this standard, but we do not assume any obligation to verify that the content meets this criterion.
Designed in CMYK and uploaded to [AB] Designs Ltd in CMYK with no embedded color profile. (You may upload in RGB or some other standard if you choose, however, the color will be converted, and [AB] Designs Ltd is not responsible for any inaccuracy or color shift that occurs as a result of the conversion).
[AB] Designs Ltd guarantees that its prints will meet CMYK industry standards. We cannot guarantee "match-print" color fidelity and cannot prevent slight color shift throughout an order. Because we cannot control the color reproduction of a customer's computer monitor, we cannot guarantee that the actual print color will precisely match any preview as it appears your monitor. [AB] Designs Ltd is not responsible for any color shift in converted photographs (RGB images) with black, near black, or gray tones. Color shifts from a perceived black or gray must be addressed prior to file submission. Proofs do not guarantee black, near black or gray final output. Please note that the application of UV coating may have an effect upon or change the appearance of printed colors. [AB] Designs Ltd is not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product.
Production Turnaround Time
Although we endeavor to ship the quantity ordered, [AB] Designs Ltd reserves the right to ship within 5% over or under the requested quantity. If a minimum quantity is a necessity, we recommend that you adjust the total quantity ordered to account for the possibility of an under run.
Order Approval/ Proofing
[AB] Designs Ltd has and assumes no obligation to proof or otherwise review the content or layout of your order. Even if a [AB] Designs Ltd customer service representative has inquired as to the attributes of one of your prior orders, you are not entitled nor should you assume that [AB] Designs Ltd will review any other order you place. Orders are printed in their "as submitted" form and the customer is fully responsible for final proof and layout verification and approval prior to submission to the print process. [AB] Designs Ltd DOES NOT make any changes on customer files without notification via email of changes that may be made to ensure that files are properly formatted for print. All such changes will result in new proofs being provided for your approval. Once you submit an order to the print process, you are agreeing that you are fully satisfied with the document layout and content and you accept responsibility for any errors therein. [AB] Designs Ltd will assume that you have verified the spelling, grammar, content, and layout, etc. are all correct and it will not accept any liability for errors such as misspelling, grammar, damaged fonts, punctuation, transparency, overprint, improper layout, bleeding, erroneous cut or fold lines, die lines or crop marks, sizing, etc.
[AB] Designs Ltd does not provide physical proofs of any order. Electronic proofs are provided to our customers as part of the order process. Once your files are uploaded to our site, you will automatically be presented with the preflighted proof. It is your responsibility to verify the proof against the original (and to correct any spelling or grammatical errors, etc.), accept, reject or make any changes suggested to your artwork.
Your job will not be processed or deemed production ready until you have approved the proof. To review electronic proofs, you must log in to your account and click on "Pending Proofs". Please review the proofs carefully (including content, phone, email, spelling, etc.). If approved, we will assume your files are print ready, and no further changes will be made. If proof is rejected, you will notified to upload new files.
