3. YOUR SUBMISSIONS
Order processing will begin when the following items are complete: Press-ready files are received / Artwork is Approved. Payment is processed
If requested by the customer, proofs of work will be submitted for the customer's approval prior to printing. No liability is accepted for any errors not corrected by the customer on 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 and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color 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 products may differ from what you see on your screen. Please keep in mind that while we will try our best to match proofs, Mahi Printing & Signage Ltd DOES NOT GUARANTEE COLOR MATCHING.
