Returns and exchange details
REFUND/RETURN POLICY: Due to the custom nature of your products, we are not able to provide any refunds, returns or exchanges. If you have placed the order it is a binding contract. Please understand this policy before purchase.

If your order has not gone to print, but artwork has been sent and artwork check has been done, you can cancel the order to receive 90% of its value back. We will charge a 10% processing fee to cover our time. If you have ordered woven labels, and sample has been developed and you want another sample, we will do one more for free. If you choose to cancel the order after sampling process, only 50% price will be refunded as sampling is as good as running a production cycle. Please make sure you provide correct artwork as per our specifications and know what you are buying before you place the order with us.

If your print is found to be defective due to the fault of Print For Brands, then you may contact Print For Brands to submit a claim within 5 business days of receiving your order, via email. Please submit 2 high resolution images: Image 1- Close up shot of one business card clearly showing the defected areas, Image 2- displaying 20 business cards in one shot with the same defect. Please include an explanation of Print For Brands technical error to: printforbrands [!at] gmail.com. The claim must be made via email or etsy, for our documentation purposes. We will review it in 1-2 business day and get back to you. We stand by our printed products, so after inspecting your claim, if it is established that there has been a printing error, we may issue a REPRINT for your job. Please note that for a REPRINT, we will use *exactly* the same artwork as your original job, so no changes on original order artwork are allowed, and no quantity change is allowed, either. Job specifications will remain exactly the same as before.

PROOFING: We do not send proofs as part of your order. They are available for an additional cost of $15-$20 and will be a high resolution pdf file with bleeds/crops marked out. Note this will add time to your turnaround as we do not go into production without approval if proofs are ordered. We do not do physical proofs at all. We wait for proof approvals for two weeks only, if we do not hear from you in that timeframe, we will send this as-is in production. We assume all our clients want their order in print and feel that 2 weeks time is sufficient to review and get back with us. If you need more time, you may let us know and we can extend the order deadline.

PRE-PRESS: Please understand that we are printers only, and not designers. We will print what is given to us as-is. We will submit your files directly for printing after some basic pre-press. We only check if your files are as per specs, which means if they are high resolution, and if all files have been supplied like additional mask files needed for foiling or raised ink. We will drop whatever you provide on our design templates and proceed to printing, we do recommend ordering proofs if you are particular about how the art will be printed. We do not check any aesthetics of your design like font sizes, typography, alignment, spelling errors, and colors. If you need such advice, we recommend hiring a professional graphic designer like colorfiestagraphics.etsy.com. Colors in your files must be CMYK encoded which is a standard for printing, if you send us RGB files, there will be a significant color change, and we will not be responsible for that. If you are concerned about how your artwork will print, we recommend ordering a proof beforehand, it is a high resolution digital pdf, and available for most of our products for an additional charge of $15-$20 depending on the product. We also have blank design templates and file specs, for our products so make sure you ask for them before submitting artwork.

CUTTING TOLERANCE: The batch cutting machine has a tolerance of 1mm-2mm. Please ALWAYS allow for a 1/16"(1.5mm) tolerance. This can also affect the registration of finishing options like ink press embossing and raised ink. Raised ink has a smaller rate of alignment issues however blind press embossing is the most recommended as no alignment with printing is needed. We do not guarantee alignment of finishing options, if you are very particular please contact us first, before ordering so we may make some stock and best option suggestions. Please keep this in mind before ordering.

BORDERS: We recommend against borders of any kind on your design. If they are too close to the trim line they may appear unequal.

GANG PRINTING: As all our products are gang printed and we do batch cutting, we are not able to guarantee 100% print color ink alignment with special finishing options like metallic foil, raised ink and ink press embossing. Please keep this in mind, and create designs where finishing options don't need to be specifically aligned with the printed areas.

FINISHING OPTIONS: Please be advised that business cards are sent for finishing after trimming. Hence, they get affected by the cutting tolerance on our machines. Always allow for offsetting by 1mm-2mm. Keep all relevant design elements within safe zone. Please ALWAYS allow for machine tolerance, we have no control over it as we do batch printing.

RE-PRINTING: We may grant a re-print if it is established that their is a technical error on our part. Please send us high resolution pictures or mail them back to us for review. Order artwork and specifications on a reprint, will remain exactly the same as before. We strive to provide perfect products for our clients and want you to be happy with your prints! Email us at printforbrands [!at] gmail.com with any dissatisfaction you may have so we can assist you.

COLORS : We do not guarantee 100% color match but match as closely as possible within CMYK industry standards for cards. Card color may shift from design displayed on computer monitors (we cannot compensate for RGB values you may be viewing through your screen). Heavy stocks may absorb colors more than other stocks, which can affect color results. Color results may differ on stocks that are colored, or stocks that are transparent. We do not guarantee color results, as can shift using the same design when the design is printed at different times as weather, humidity and other external factors can affect the outcome which are not in our control.

METALLIC FOIL : Please note that for best metallic foil results, avoid large areas of foil. We recommend line artwork and font sizes over 9PT for easy legibility with metallic foil. For plastic cards with foil, kindly keep 0.275" margin from document edge, free of any foil for our foiling machines to hold the card.

OVERRUNS/UNDERRUNS: We always take care of our customers, and you will be happy to note that we may supply MORE than ordered. However, from time to time, we may have an underrun, by 2-5%, so please bear with us.

NON-COMMUNICATION: We will wait 6 weeks for your artwork after order is made. We will try to contact you via email and etsy, if we don't get a response, your order is considered abandoned and will be canceled, and all payments are forfeit. If you need more time to arrange for your artwork, please let us know, and we can extend your wait period.

We do want you to be happy with what you have received, so do not hesitate to contact us at printforbrands [!at] gmail.com, and we will work with you to make everything right! We pride ourselves on our communication and speedy response, so email us anytime, and we will get back to you within 24 hours.
