Color Accuracy and Hardcopy Proofs
WestHeir will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density because of limitations in the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements.
The accuracy of each color reproduction (of the final printed product) is guaranteed to be within 90% of the final proof you approved or WestHeir will reprint your job at no charge. Please note that WestHeir cannot guarantee color reproduction for your print-ready files if you: (a) did not request a hardcopy proof; or (b) purchased a product that does not feature a hardcopy proof option. Please note that we accept no responsibility for color variations between submitted print-ready images and the actual artwork or product they represent.
If you order a “Next Day Hardcopy” proof, your order must be placed, all files uploaded, and all files approved by 9 a.m. CST in order for us to promise a next-day delivery. If you need to update your file, you may receive up to two additional rounds of your hardcopy proof. If need additional rounds of your hardcopy proof, there will be an extra charge.
You are responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and you must proofread all files carefully before submitting to WestHeir. As postal regulations are subject to change, you are also responsible for complying with current mailing restrictions for your layouts. Check with your local Post Office for current guidelines and restrictions.
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: 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. WestHeir is unable to print sexually explicit materials, including photographic genitals, and violently explicit materials.
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. If you ordered a next day hardcopy proof or standard hardcopy proof, printing turnaround time begins when we receive approval for your proof. Please note that if we are unable to print your files because they do not conform to our file requirements, your job status will return to “Need Artwork” and your printing turnaround time will be reset.
For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided, printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s) for your print job, not from when the order is first submitted.
If your job or proof is approved by 5 pm CST, printing turnaround time begins that business day. For example, a job for a three-day printing turnaround that you approved by 1:00 p.m. CST on Tuesday will be shipped out to you by end of business Friday. Please note that WestHeir offices are closed Saturdays, Sundays, and major holidays. As a result, these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time. In addition, printing turnaround time does not include shipping transit time, and you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you selected.
Shipping and Arrival Times
Shipping transit times vary, and WestHeir 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. WestHeir is not responsible for delays due to improperly prepared files.
Target arrival dates are calculated by adding the printing turnaround time to the shipping transit time. If you are requesting a hardcopy proof, we already factor in additional time to reach your target date. For a standard hardcopy proof, expect approximately six business days to receive and approve your proof. For a next day hardcopy proof, expect two business days. Both printing and shipping times are based on business days only and do not include weekends or holidays. For example, a product with a printing turnaround time of two business days and a shipping method of 2nd Day Air would have a target arrival date of four business days after your files have been received by us. The cut-off time for accepting files is 5:00 p.m. CST If your files are in by that time, we will commit to printing and shipping your product within the selected timeframe.
You agree that shipping terms for all WestHeir products are shipped “Freight On Board Shipping Point” or “F.O.B. Shipping Point” – title and risk of loss transfers to you at time of shipment or pickup.
Pick-up orders will be held for 30 days. After 30 days, we will recycle your order.
All sales are final, unless otherwise noted. No refunds are given once WestHeir begins working on your order, which means WestHeir has received your necessary materials (i.e., digital files and payment) and started work on your job (i.e., your job is in production).
Orders not sent to our printing presses within 30 days are available for a full refund. After 30 days, orders are not available for a refund.
Please note that your printed product or images used for your printed product will not be used in any marketing collateral without your prior written consent.
IN NO EVENT WILL WESTHEIR BE LIABLE FOR ANY INDIRECT, SPECIAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, OR OTHER DAMAGES WHETHER OR NOT WESTHEIR HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH LOSS OR DAMAGE. WESTHEIR’S ENTIRE LIABILITY UNDER, FOR BREACH OF, OR ARISING OUT OF PROVIDING THE SERVICES HEREUNDER, IS LIMITED TO A REFUND OF THE FEES PAID FOR THE PRODUCT OR SERVICE THAT GAVE RISE TO THE CLAIM. IN NO EVENT SHALL WESTHEIR BE LIABLE FOR YOUR COST OF PROCURING SUBSTITUTE GOODS.
You will defend and hold WestHeir harmless in any claim, suit, or action brought against WestHeir by others for alleged damages, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees), liabilities, or losses resulting from circumstances where WestHeir, acting as your 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 WestHeir’s sole judgment is an infringement on a trademark, or trade name, or service mark, or copyright belonging to others, or in a claim, suit or action brought against WestHeir for actions of your employees which may occur as a result of any mailing.
