ORDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
If a User submits a request on the Site to purchase printing products, mailing services, design services or other services, the User agrees that all charges, taxes and shipping/handling fees will automatically be charged to the credit card or paid by User with an approved payment method. We require each order to be fully paid, including shipping and handling fees, if applicable, before we complete an order. We will not start working on a print job until we receive the full payment.
Once a print job has been approved by customer and is already "In Production", no changes are allowed to the artwork files, job characteristics, or printing turnaround time. After a print job has been sent to production, the customer is responsible for paying the entire amount of that print job along with applicable taxes and shipping/handling fees, unless otherwise noted.
At QRDb, we strive to provide our clients with the best possible printing experience. If you are not 100% satisfied with your order for any reason, please contact our customer service department. Our representative will document your complaint and create a ticket for your reference.
+ 100% Refund or reprint on any defective print orders
+ 100% Free expedited reprint on any orders lost in transit
All policies are subject to change without prior notification. Defective product refunds and reprints are limited to $1000. Determination of defect is at the discretion of management. In most cases, clients will be requested to submit digital photos documenting the product defect and/or ship the defective products back to customer service. Free expedited reprint on any orders lost in transit is limited to orders less than or equal to $250. Turnaround and shipping for reprint orders will vary depending upon available production capacity and manager's discretion. Refunds issued for late turnaround will be limited to no more than $200 and calculated as 20% of print total (excluding tax, shipping, handing, and design services) for every business day (excluding weekends and holidays) that the order was late.
If requested, an online proof will be available for your review after we have received your file upload. Actual time will vary depending on our current workload. No job will be sent to press without your approval unless waived. It is the customer’s responsibility to log in to their account and check on their proof. We are not liable for delays in the order caused by customer's non-approval of the proof.
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.
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.
QRDb offers hard copy proofs which show reasonable likeness to the final printed pieces. Such proofs are recommended for color-critical art and must be requested by the customer when the print order is made. Hard copy proofs are printed on a substrate different from the actual paper stock and while it's main purpose is to show color, variations may occur depending on the finish selected (AQ, matte, UV) for the final print job. We do not offer hard copy proofs for art that would be printed on uncoated paper.
The request for a hard copy proof may involve an additional fee and would extend the amount of time needed to complete the job. For orders where a hard copy proof has been requested, the approval must be received by QRDb on or before our published cut-off times. We will make every effort to match colors in production when a hard copy proof is requested. However, it is the customer's responsibility to determine if they need a hard copy proof with their print order.
QRDb will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density (as viewed in a 5000K light booth). Because of inherent limitations with the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements, the accuracy of color reproduction is not guaranteed. By placing an order with QRDb 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. We are not liable for color matching or ink density on screen proofs that you approve. 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.
No Liability for Errors
QRDb is not liable for errors in a final product caused by any of the following reasons:
Misspelling, Graphics, Bleeds, Grammar, Damage Fonts, Punctuation, Wrong cuts, Incorrect or Missing Folds, Die Lines, Crop Marks, Transparency, Overprint, Cracks on Folds, Finished Product Size. QRDb does not make any changes on customer files.
Overprint and Underprint Policy
Due to the gang run method that QRDb uses, we cannot guarantee that every order will be the exact number of items which was ordered. QRDb can only guarantee that it will come within plus or minus 10% of the number of items ordered.
Our prepress 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 QRDb. QRDb is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted artwork. By submitting the artwork to QRDb, you certify that you have the right to use the image(s) in your artwork files. DO NOT send any "one-of-kind" transparencies, prints or artwork. Although we take every precaution to safeguard your materials, we are NOT responsible for loss or damage of images or artwork.
Under these Terms and Conditions, you agree that you will NOT upload any artwork files consisting of the following material: offensive, indecent or improper material, any material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable law; and any material that could infringe rights of privacy, publicity, copyrights or other intellectual property rights without the permission of the owner of these rights and the persons who are shown in the material if applicable. We will refuse an order, which in our opinion may be illegal in nature or an infringement on the rights of any third party. You accept full legal liability for the content of material processed and printed on your behalf and under your instructions. We reserve the right to refuse an order without disclosing a reason.
Printing Turnaround Time
Printing turnaround time begins once your order has been placed and your print-ready files have been uploaded to your account, attached to your printing job, and approved for printing. Printing turnaround time begins when we receive approval for your proof and full payment has been made. For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided or have submitted files that are not print-ready, printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s), not from when the order was first submitted.
Orders and files must be submitted by 1:00 P.M. GMT and proofs must be approved by 5:00 P.M. GMT, printing turnaround time begins the next business day. For example, a job for two-day printing turnaround that you submitted at 3 P.M. GMT and approved by 5:00 P.M. GMT on Tuesday will be shipped out of our facility by end of business Thursday.
Please note that there is no production or shipping on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. As a result, these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time. In addition, while Production Turnaround includes printing, cutting, and binding, it does not include design, mailing, or shipping transit times, and you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you selected. The estimated production turnaround advertised on this site is based on the typical number of hours or days that a print job is completed under normal circumstances, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
Printing turnaround time for jobs with approved proofs and payment is guaranteed. The remedy for failing to meet a deadline is limited to a 20% refund for every business day of delay. Cancellation of an order based on printing turnaround time is only allowed if the customer indicates in writing (e.g., note posted to order) when placing the original order that a job in the order is time sensitive and must be shipped by target date based on printing turnaround option selected. QRDb will not be responsible for shipping-related costs on orders that do not go out by the due date.
Unless you choose Pick Up or Mailing Services, you need to select one of the shipping options presented to you on the Site. All shipping is currently done via carriers such as FedEx or UPS. 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 the carrier.
Shipping transit times vary, and QRDb 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.
QRDb’s responsibility is limited to preparing your printing order and turning it over to the carrier for shipping. QRDb is not liable for damages which occur during shipping.
Pick up orders will be kept for 30 days from the delivery of the pick-up notification email. If the order has not been picked up from QRDb's facility within 30 days, it will be recycled. We cannot ship to P.O. Boxes or APO/FPO.
Customer's mailing list(s), while in the possession of QRDb is the exclusive property of the customer and shall be used only with customer's instructions. Customer's mailing list(s) will not be sold or offered for use to any other party, and QRDb will not utilize the list for any other purpose.
All mailing delivery dates are estimates, not guarantees. QRDb's responsibility is limited to preparing your mailing and completing delivery to the shipping. QRDb's responsibility ends when the job is delivered to the shipping. In no event shall QRDb be liable for shipping performance failures or delivery delays.
QRDb shall be liable to rectify printing and mailing errors only to the extent of re-mailing a correction or corrected job as soon as possible, and allowable damages shall be limited to the value of the printing work performed. In no case is QRDb liable for loss of business; incidental or consequential damages; or costs in excess of billing for services related to the specific job.
The customer will defend and hold QRDb harmless in any suit or court action brought against by others for alleged damages, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees), liabilities or losses resulting from circumstances where, acting as the customer's agent, uses copy, photographs, or illustrations that are believed by others to be degrading, libelous or harmful to their reputations, images, or standing in the community or which in QRDb sole judgment is an infringement on a trademark, or trade name, or service mark, or copyright belonging to others, or in a suit or court action brought against for actions of the customer's employees which may occur as a result of any mailing.
All complaints must be registered within 24 hours of receipt of your final printing job. If we determine that your job contains manufacturing errors and/or defects, we will rerun your job at no charge.
All materials we create in producing your printed product are the property of QRDb. Although these materials will NOT be sold or given to any other party, we reserve the right to distribute free samples of your printed product. Please note that your printed product or images used for your printed product will not be used in any national advertising without your prior written consent.
