NOTE: Pricing may change from the time Customer reviews products to time Customer places order. Customer is responsible for final review of the pricing at the time Customer places order.
PRODUCTION TURNAROUND TIME
Typical production turnaround time is listed on each product, and production schedule starts following Company’s receipt of (a) order, (b) prepayment and (c) approval of art proof. Note: Because standard turnaround may vary due to product being ordered, quantity ordered, current production schedule, and other factors, Customer is to refer to the turnaround time shown at the time Customer places order. Optional rush turn times may be available for an extra charge and are shown on the website at the time of placing the order. Turnaround times do not include shipping time. Any estimated date Customer will receive the order is a combination of the turnaround time and desired shipping time, and is only estimated and not guaranteed.

PROMOTIONS AND SPECIAL OFFERS
Promotions and special offers may occasionally be offered to Customers. To take advantage of a promotion or special offer, enter the promotion code in the applicable field when placing an order. Not all products are eligible for promotions and special offers. If a promotion code does not function when entered, it means the product at issue does not qualify for the promotion or special offer; this determination is final. A promotion code may not be combined with any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward offered by Company. If Customer enters a promotion code or takes advantage of a promotion, special offer, discount or reward, Customer will not be able to enter another promotion code or take advantage of any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward. Promotion codes only apply to products ordered through Company’s website. Promotion codes cannot be used to pay for taxes, shipping and handling or other charges. If the promotion or special offer has a minimum purchase requirement, taxes, shipping and handling and other charges do not apply towards the minimum purchase amount. If a promotion or special offer is for a defined amount and applies to a multiple-item order, the promotion amount will be allocated to each eligible item based on the proportion of the item’s value to the total value of all eligible items, excluding shipping and handling, taxes and other charges. Certain items may not be eligible for the promotion and will not be included in the calculation. Promotions and special offers are only valid for a limited time. They will expire on the date or within the timeframe specified in the offer and can be cancelled at any time. Promotion codes (and the coupons or emails that contain them) are not for resale, have no independent cash value, are not redeemable for cash, and will not be replaced if lost, stolen or deleted. Promotion codes cannot be retroactively applied against orders already placed with Company. If a promotion code is used and the entire order is canceled or rejected, subject to the terms of Company’s cancellation policy, Customer will be refunded only the actual amount paid. The promotion code will no longer be valid. The foregoing notwithstanding, under no circumstances will a promotion or special offer of any kind be applied to create a credit balance. If the balance of a partially canceled, rejected or returned order is less than the value of the promotion or special offer, the promotion or special offer will be applied to the outstanding balance (not including shipping and handling, taxes and other charges). The balance of the promotion or special offer is void, and the promotion code will no longer be valid. Company reserves the right to discontinue a promotion or special offer or coupon at any time and with immediate effect.
Customer is liable for any and/or bounced check fees incurred to Company.

Company stores Customer’s print files only as a convenience to Customer for reprinting orders with Company and does not assume any liability in case of Company losing said files.
SUBMISSION OF ARTWORK OR GRAPHICS
All files must be submitted in either RGB or CMYK color spaces with 100% vector artwork. CMYK will render more reliable and accurate color. However Company cannot guarantee any kind of color accuracy with RGB.
The resolution of the artwork file submitted depends upon the printed size of Customer’s project, however 300dpi+ is always recommended. Silkscreen items will be printed at highest possible resolution we can achieve within the limitations of silkscreen printing.
Company requires Customer submit print-ready artwork files in a .pdf, .eps, or .ai file format.
The Customer order is subject to applicable state and local taxes in Colorado unless Customer has provided to Company a Government Sales Tax Use and Exemption Certificate form completely filled out denoting that said corporation is exempt from sales tax. Appropriate taxes will be applied to outstanding invoices unless the Exemption form is filled out and submitted to our site. See My Account page for submission of form.
