11. Color Quality

ABC PrintRoom guarantees that its prints will meet CMYK industry standards. We cannot guarantee “match-print” color fidelity and cannot prevent slight color shift throughout an order. Because we cannot control the color reproduction of a Customer’s computer monitor, we cannot guarantee that the actual print color will precisely match any preview as it appears on your monitor. ABC PrintRoom is not responsible for any color shift in converted photographs (RGB images) with black, near black, or gray tones. Color shifts from a perceived black or gray must be addressed prior to file submission. Proofs do not guarantee black, near black or gray final output. 

 

12. Payment

All prices and dollar amounts on the Website are in United States dollars. ABC PrintRoom presently accepts the following credit cards: VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We reserve the right to stop accepting credit cards from one or more issuers.

 

In order for you to order products and services from ABC PrintRoom it is necessary for you to provide a valid, authentic and current credit card, which you are authorized to use. By submitting a credit card number to ABC PrintRoom you are representing and warranting that the credit card information you provide is valid, authentic, current, and one that you are authorized to use. You agree that in the event the credit card information you have provided becomes invalid, out of date or that you are no longer authorized to use the card, you will immediately provide another credit card number that is valid, authentic and current, and which you are authorized to use. Some electronic transactions may require extended processing in addition to credit card authorization. You will be notified by an ABC PrintRoom Customer Service Representative if extended processing is required to complete your transaction request through our Website. This may affect your estimated delivery date.

 

Unless ABC PrintRoom agrees otherwise, all product and service orders must be paid for at the time of the order and accompanied by an authorization to charge a credit card on file with ABC PrintRoom or to charge a valid, authentic and current credit card, which you are authorized to use, that you provide at the time of the order. (If new credit card information is provided at the time of the order it will be added to the credit card information kept on file; ABC PrintRoom will not assume that previously provided credit card information is not valid). If a charge against a credit card you provide is not authorized or accepted, or is subsequently refused or rejected, we reserve the right to cancel your order without notice or liability.

 

In the event you make one or more charges to an existing order that incur additional charges, those charges will be applied to the credit card that was used for the original order, or to an alternative credit card that is provided to us. 

 

13. Promotions, Special Offers and Discount Coupons

From time to time ABC PrintRoom may offer promotions and special offers identified by a Coupon Code. Each Coupon Code will have different requirements and rewards. Typically, you will receive a Coupon or an email that contains the Coupon Code. If you receive a Coupon or email that contains a Coupon Code, please read it carefully – all requirements state in the Coupon or email must be met in order to receive or take advantage of the promotion or special offer. Unless otherwise stated, all Coupon Codes are limited to one-time use and are limited to current ABC PrintRoom account holder in good standing.

 

To take advantage of a promotion or special offer, enter the Coupon Code in the applicable field during checkout when placing an order. Not all products are eligible for promotions and special offers. If a Coupon Code does not function when entered, it means the product at issue does not qualify for the promotion or special offer, or the offer is expired; this determination is final.

 

A Coupon Code may not be combined with any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward offered by ABC PrintRoom. If you enter a Coupon Code or take advantage of a promotion, special offer, discount or reward, you will not be able to enter another Coupon Code or take advantage of any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward.

 

Coupon Codes cannot be used to pay for taxes. 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.

 

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. If no date or timeframe is specified, a promotion or special offer is valid until the end of the month in which the Coupon Code is first eligible.

 

Coupon Codes (and the Coupon 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.

 

Coupon Codes will not be retroactively applied against orders already placed with ABC PrintRoom. If a Coupon Code is used and the entire order is cancelled or rejected you will be refunded only the amount paid and the Coupon Code will no longer be valid. If only part of your order is canceled or rejected the relevant discount or promotion will be applied to the item(s) that are kept. 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 or rejected 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).

 

ABC PrintRoom reserves the right to discontinue a promotion or special offer or coupon at any time and with immediate effect.

 

14. Order Cancellation

A print order or job can be canceled at any time prior to it being assigned a Job Status. If you cancel an order prior to it being assigned a Job Status an ABC PrintRoom Customer Service Representative will inform you of any cancellation charges incurred. (Please allow at least 10 business days for any refunded monies to be credited to your account). A print order cannot be canceled and no refund will be given once it has a Job Status or any process thereafter. 

 

15. Returns

Due to the nature of the product, no returns can be made once the order is assigned a job status and/or shipped. Any claims for defects, damages or shortages must be made in writing within two (2) business days after receipt of the merchandise. We will replace only those orders that were processed incorrectly. The replacement of the order will take place only after the receipt of returned merchandise, paid for at the Customer’s expense.
