ORDERING AND PAYMENT POLICY
All orders are 100 % prepaid. We accept Visa, Master Card, Discover, personal checks, money orders and cashiers checks. Once your order is placed by credit card, personal check, money order or cashiers check it is a confirmed order. You will receive a confirmation of your purchase within 24hrs via e-mail if ordering over the phone. After your order is processed, we forward it to the Graphics Department. No design work will be started if your order is not paid (orders placed by phone or e-mail). The customer is responsible for verifying all aspects of the written estimate, invoice and related paperwork. Poly Bag Planet assumes no responsibility for typographic errors contained in these documents once they have been approved. Please verify quantities, colors, styles, sizes, printing material, billing and shipping address.
SUBMISSION OF ARTWORK OR GRAPHICS
All artwork remains property of Poly Bag Planet unless purchased from Poly Bag Planet. Poly Bag Planet is not responsible for the quality of the images you upload and will not be liable for any files that the Client has not set up properly. Client is responsible for making sure that the quality of the image you are uploading is of high enough quality to be satisfactory to you at the size you select on the sign, banner or other product that you are purchasing.
COLOR PROOFING, MATCHING AND PRINT QUALITY
Colors will appear differently from one computer monitor to another and from one printer to another, therefore the final print might be different from the one you see on your equipment(s). Standard colors are approximate and may vary. If you are looking for a more specific color you need to refer to a PMS chart. We cannot guarantee a perfect match to PMS and Standard colors and we are not liable for the final color appearance and/or ink density. Proofs that we sent and you approve will show design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, not color or density. Poly Bag Planet does not guarantee that the colors as they appear on the screen or printer will look the same as the colors that appear on the purchased product. Standard printing allows approximately a .75 inch no print margin as provision for the bleed. Full bleed products may be smaller than ordered size. Color replacement (if you've chosen to use our stock colors) will be done via an algorithm, not visually, to insure closest match possible.
We require your approval for the layout (proof) before we print your order. In most cases, this proof is provided automatically as a virtual proof in the cart system. Poly Bag Planet is not liable for undetected art, text or color errors after sign proof has been approved and production started. The proof of your artwork will be used to produce your order. Please read for errors. By approving, you assume all responsibility for all grammar, punctuation, spelling, layout and color errors. Check your artwork carefully. Once approved, we will produce your order unless otherwise instructed to make any changes.
All production times are estimates. You agree that Poly Bag Planet will take at least 7-10 (bag signs) or 3-5 (corrugated plastic) business days from the art approval to produce and ship your order. This production time is not guarantee and will fluctuate during peak seasons. Our business days are from Monday through Friday (excluding holidays). If you place your order on Friday after 3PM CT, Saturday or Sunday, we will start working on your order the following Monday. If you want us to use our Rush Service there will be an additional charge (see individual product pages). Production time for orders starts the next business day after artwork approval. Orders sent in after 10am will be counted as the next days business. Transit time for shipping is always additional to production turnaround, so please make sure to take this into consideration before placing the order.
