Monies owed to Printing Direct for services or work produced under credit account agreements are due 30 days from date of invoice. A credit account can be applied for by requesting a Business Credit Application form to complete, sign and return to Printing Direct where the application will be considered and a decision will be reached and the outcome informed. Until this procedure has been successfully completed we will request payment with order for any work required.

 

16) Quotations supplied by Printing Direct are valid for 30 days from the date the quotation has been supplied unless stated otherwise. If the job in question is likely to be required after 30 days from quotation, please inform the staff member at the time of requesting a quotation so that we may be able to offer a longer period of time for the quotation to be valid for. After that time it may be necessary to supply an up to date quotation to ensure prices are correct. Historic quotations supplied by Printing Direct should not be assumed accurate or current and an updated quotation should be requested. Quotations supplied by Printing Direct will state if artwork costs have been included based on initial enquiry details received from the Purchaser. Upon receipt of order and final artwork, additional costs may be incurred if the supplied artwork is not as expected or advised in order to enable printing and production or if any of the specifications do not match that which has been requested.

 

17) Ownership of artwork created by Printing Direct and copyrights belong to Printing Direct. Whilst Printing Direct maintain artwork archives, it is not

the responsibility of Printing Direct to hold the only copies of artworks and cannot be held responsible for unavailable files used for previous jobs.

 

18) Artwork supplied to Printing Direct in relation to an order placed will be deemed and assumed to be suitable to print directly from the supplied files. Printing Direct will not be accountable for errors and omissions within supplied files. Any amendments required will incur additional costs which will be advised in advance of making those changes. Printing Direct have a minimum charge for artwork changes/amendments/creation for which details can be requested by contacting a staff member.

 

19) Printing Direct will make every effort to ensure design work is accurate and a true representation of the brief taken but are not responsible for errors or omissions once proofs have been signed or approved by the Customer/Purchaser. The Customer/Purchaser is ultimately responsible for any reprint or costs associated to needing to reprint or reproduce a job after approval has been received.

 

20) Turnaround times are subject to capacity at time of order, best possible dates will be advised and accommodated where ever possible. Any additional works or amendments requested will prolong the design process and therefore the start of production of your job. If changes to the original brief are made Printing Direct cannot be held accountable for any deadlines missed or delays and any works completed so far must be paid for in full.
