From the time of delivery the goods are at the buyer’s risk. It is for the buyer to arrange adequate insurance cover for this risk until the full title passes to the buyer.
Where camera ready artwork is not supplied, then it is wholly the customers’ responsibility to ensure that the artwork is satisfactory before any goods are printed. Supreme Creations Ltd will give professional help in advising the customer as to the suitability of the artwork, but accept no responsibility whatsoever in the appearance of the design once it has been printed onto fabric.
Digital reproduction/artwork provided is for presentation purposes only and to check for placement, layout, design, type, spelling and approximate colour. Printed pieces will vary from this digital reproduction as far as colour, texture and achievement of detail, which are dependent upon the fabric/substrate to be printed.
In the case of printed goods the Company will not accept liability or responsibility for any errors in proofs which have been passed by the Buyer.
No responsibility is accepted for designs submitted as JPEG/PDF computer files. No responsibility is accepted for design colour descriptions other than by pantone colour reference, or sample referred to in the order form or otherwise agreed in writing.
The recommended graphic applications are Adobe Photoshop CS3 and Adobe Illustrator CS3. Files accepted for a good quality print are: tiff, eps, ai, psd.
We prefer not to print JPEG (.jpg) files because they are often of very poor quality. Please be aware that if you wish us to proceed with artwork given in JPEG/PDF format, the artwork may have to be altered or amended to try and improve print quality. The artwork will have to be manually manipulated and is prone to human errors such as misspelling, wrong artwork alignment, layout changes and font changes. It is the customer’s responsibility to examine the final artwork approval given in great detail to see what has been altered from the customer’s original artwork.
Colour matching is more an art than it is an exact science. We recommend customers to confirm the pantone colour references on the order form or at least send a hard copy sample.
Remember your hazel might not be ours, and what you think of as azure, we might be describing as turquoise. Please be aware that if you wish us to proceed without specifying a pantone colour reference for us to match, we retain the right to use our own discretion.
All notices and any court proceedings may be validly served on the relevant party by delivering a copy in a sealed envelope addressed to the party at that parties address given on the order form and/or at any other business premises at which the party is trading at the date of service. Such service is deemed effective on the next business day after service save that service by Royal Mail is deemed effective on the second business day after posting by First Class post.
