Terms & Conditions
|ACCEPTANCE OF ORDER: All custom-printed/custom-embroidered orders are subject to approval of styles, quantities, availability and Active Imprints ability to meet scheduled deadlines.
ART PREPARATION CHARGES: Where you choose Active Imprints to render art services, a per-hour charge or itemized charge is made (see price schedule). Most new orders for one-color printing average $25.00 -$50.00, including typesetting, art reproduction, and camera services. Color separations are charged separately. We will estimate total charges prior to producing your order. Or, if you prefer, establish an art budget and we will work within your guidelines.
Assignments requiring extensive detailing, line work, or the creation of original graphics (logos, corporate identifications, conceptual renderings, or photographs converted to line art) are subject to quotation prior to our acceptance of your order.
Unless otherwise arranged, in writing, prior to production, all artwork rendered for your order remains the property of our art department and will be maintained at our plant for our exclusive usage in executing your orders.
Where an order is accompanied by professionally prepared black-and-white, camera-ready artwork or production-quality transparencies, only a preflight fee will be incurred (except where excessive enlargements, reduction or retouching are necessary). Materials furnished remain the property of the provider. Any requests for the return of originals, including discs, must be made within 10 days of completion of order.
