Terms, Conditions, Disclaimers and Privacy
Last updated: Feb, 2021
1. Terms and Conditions
Storage of print files
Digital file storage is provided at no cost for all files printed or managed with our company, and are backed-up as well as stored off-site. We do our very best to back up and archive all of our clients’ work, but cannot guarantee against acts of god, unforeseeable circumstances, or events beyond our control. Image files are always available (at no cost) when you complete your order. Alternatively, we can provide a back-up of your entire archived directory for a small fee (please provide a hard drive or Memory stick of sufficient size). Please keep copies of your own work.
Storage of artist proofs
Artist proofs are filed and archived on site to match to future print orders and offer consistency in print runs. However, we cannot take responsibly for unforeseeable circumstances or events beyond our control for long term storage.
Print colour and quality consistency
Our very best efforts are made to offer constant critical colour and technical accuracy, but due to changes in technology, batch numbers and ink systems, some print results may vary slightly; we cannot be responsible for changing technology or systems.
Canvas Print Size Variation
We cannot guarantee exact sizing for canvas prints due to canvas being a natural product which can shrink slightly when printed and varnished. This may vary according to the atmosphere and subtle nuances of difference in the canvas batches. The measurements cannot, and will not be exact each and every time, as it is for paper prints. Typically this only happens in one direction (width or length) according to the direction of the weave of canvas. The variance is not large, about a 1/8’ “(+/-) per foot maximum. We recommend building your stretcher bars after receiving the printed canvas to have them perfectly match each and every time. Print, measure, build and stretch.
Payment and deposits
You may be required to place a deposit on your order to commence the project. Payment for all print orders are due upon completion. Overdue invoices will be subject to 5% interest per month or portion thereof.
Copyright of your files
As an artist in Canada, you own the copyright on all your original works of art and on all your digital files (unless sold). We follow Canada Copyright laws very seriously, and stand for the rights of artists first. For more information and support see: https://www.carfac.ca. Art Ink Print retains ownership of all design and managed digital image files (as per Canada copyright law).
We strive to make sure your order is correct and as per request. If there are any concerns about your order, please let us know within two weeks (14 days) of receiving/picking up your package. We will make every effort to correct any discrepancies or quality control concerns. Defective product will be corrected and replaced. Since each order is unique to each customer, it has no resale value and therefore all sales are final.
Pricing on our web site is subject to change. Price guarantees are only honoured if they’ve been delivered as a recent estimate or quote (web form or emailed copy). If in doubt, please contact us for current pricing in written form. Any prices listed on our site are subject to change at any time.
Prices posted on our web site system are subject to change without notice. Prices quoted online are subject to any additional sales tax required by law, as well as shipping costs or other ancillary charges that may apply.
Written estimates for any print product or service are applicable for 30 days from the date of estimate. An estimate not accepted within the 30 days will be honoured only at the discretion of Art Ink Print.
Quotations / Estimates for all print products or services not listed on our web site order system will be based on the accuracy of the specifications and a print-ready file provided by the customer. Non-print-ready files are subject to additional costs over and above the products and services on which the original estimate was based. The additional cost will be provided to the customer by an Art Ink Print’s customer service representative before proceeding with the print order, to be agreed upon by the customer.
If an order must be cancelled, the user must contact an Art Ink Print sale representative by phone during working hours at 250-888-2621 along with an email to firstname.lastname@example.org explaining the reason for the print order cancellation. If billable work has not started on the order, Art Ink Print may agree to hold the user free of all charges and the order will be cancelled. If any service has been rendered, the user is held responsible for the payment of the applicable charges. If the order has been sent to print, the user is responsible for payment of the full billable amount.
Since each order is unique to each customer, it has no resale value and therefore all sales are final. If we verify that the order is not usable due to a mistake by Art Ink Print, we will reprint the order at no cost. Customers must notify Art Ink Print of any errors within 14 business days of notification of order completion, or the date it was scheduled to arrive at the final location if shipped. In order to receive a replacement, the customer must return 100% of the received product within 15 business days from the time delivery was received. All charges relating to expedite printing (Rush Printing or Shipping) are non refundable, including those orders that are returned.
Guarantee Of Workmanship
We guarantee all orders to be free of defects in workmanship and of the highest quality. If any order does not match the generally accepted trade standards, we will reprint the order, issue credit, or process a refund at our discretion.
Hard Copy Proofing (Colour Approval)
Colour accuracy is critical to the printed material, hard copy proofing is our standard procedure. We cannot print a job unless a hard proof is printed and accepted. The user agrees to accept the final printed product based on the accepted approved hard proof.
Colour fidelity warranted by Art Ink Print is consistently higher than the industry standards for “pleasing colour”. We offer a guarantee of “match-print” or “match-product” colour fidelity (with-in technical abilities). Art Ink Print does not guarantee colour will match any user’s monitor, as we cannot compensate for a colour variance on each user’s display media since there are no industry standards for monitor colours.
Due to differences in equipment, paper, dry inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production runs, a reasonable variation in colour (10% for digital and 5% for giclee) between colour proofs and the completed job will be deemed acceptable unless otherwise agreed in writing. The user is required to sign and accept the hard proof before work can proceed.
We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service
