Uploading files onto our website constitutes as a Purchase Order and payment commitment for the job you are specifying. Approving any order through email confirmation and by placing any orders thereafter you agree to accept all terms and conditions of this agreement and create a legal binding contract with Rainbow Grafix Inc for all services listed in our website, and will be responsible for payment in full as outlined in this agreement.

Printing & Cutting
All postcards are "gang printed." Rainbow Grafix Inc. will reproduce colour from digital layouts as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match colour and density because of limitations in the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements. The accuracy of each colour reproduction is guaranteed to be within 85-90% to the press match proof we offer. We accept no responsibility for color variations between submitted images and the actual artwork or product they represent.
ALL files must have a 1/8" bleed all around. A $25 fee may be charged to create a bleed if it has not been incorporated in your files.
Critical type or images must be at least 1/4" from the edge of the card. Rainbow Grafix Inc. is not responsible for type, art or images that are cut off if these guidelines are not followed. Furthermore, it is strongly suggested that you do not use a thin border around your order. This may cause an uneven frame around your card. If you desire to have a border, it should be at least 1/4" thick.
Our posted turnaround times begin ONLY after an order has been "received". Orders are considered "received" and are put into production ONLY when the following conditions have been met:
Please note that our cutoff is 12pm EST. Production will begin the following day for orders received after this time. Although we rarely miss production schedules, the printing and pre-press process involves equipment which is subject to malfunctions and/or equipment failure. We will always do everything in our power to make sure that any production problems do not delay your job. However, please note that ALL production and delivery times ARE NOT CONTRACTUAL and no turnaround time can be guaranteed. No verbal or written correspondence by anyone at Rainbow Grafix Inc. can change that. Please try to plan date sensitive materials in a timely manner.
Files are checked on a first come first served basis. If a proof is requested, it can take up to around 24 hours before your files are checked due to the large volume of orders we receive. Proofs are meant to check for layout and content only and not meant to check colours. We also suggest that if your job is colour critical, ask us for match proof. This proof cost depends on the size of the proof, So please call rainbow Grafix to know the cost. Please keep in mind that while we will try our best to match proofs, Rainbow Grafix Inc. DOES NOT GUARANTEE COLOR MATCHING.
Colour Matching and 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 colour between colour 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 cards may differ from what you see on your screen. Please keep in mind that while we will try our best to match proofs, Rainbow Grafix Inc. DOES NOT GUARANTEE COLOR MATCHING.

Claims for defects, damages, shortages must be made by the customer in writing by email or registered mail within a period of fifteen (15) days after delivery of all or any part of the order. Failure to make such claim within the stated period shall constitute irrevocable acceptance and an admission the customer is in full compliance with the terms, conditions and specifications outlined herein. In the event of an error in printing, Rainbow Grafix Inc. will make a determination, whether the defect is of such nature as to qualify for a discount or re-print. Our liability should be limited to reprinting of any defective order and in no case will include special or consequential charges, including expenses, rush shipping, profits lost due to damages. This guarantee applies only to defects in workmanship or materials. It does not cover defects in the files submitted for printing. Over runs and under runs are not to exceed 10% of the order.
