1. ABOUT print24
print24.us is a website operated by print24.com USA LP
print24.com USA LP
2. SERVICE AVAILABILITY
print24.us is intended for use only by people resident in the U.S. We do not accept orders from outside the U.S.
3. YOUR STATUS
By placing an order through our website you warrant that:
(a) you are legally capable of entering into binding contracts.
(b) you are at least 18 years old.
(c) you are resident in the United States.
4. THE CONTRACT BETWEEN US
4.1 After placing an order, you will receive an email from us acknowledging that we have received your order request. All order requests are subject to acceptance by us and we will confirm acceptance by sending you a second email confirming your order (an "Order Confirmation"). A contract between us will be formed only when we send you this Order Confirmation (a "Contract" or "Order") indicating our acceptance of your offer to purchase Products.
4.2 The Contract will relate only to those products we have confirmed in the Order Confirmation (the "Products"). We will not be obliged to supply any other products you may have requested until we have issued a separate Order Confirmation for additional Products.
4.3 If you request a change to your Order, this will be seen as a request to cancel the Order and place a new order. All Order cancellations are subject to Section 18.
4.4 We reserve the right to decline an order request and to terminate a Contract without notice if the transmitted print data contains contents that are pornographic or illegal, or contents the use and printing of which we have reason to believe would constitute copyright or trademark infringement, misappropriation of trade secrets, violation of moral rights or rights of publicity or personality, slander or libel, or other violation of intellectual property or other rights.
5. CONSUMER RIGHTS
Because the Products are custom-made articles or goods made to consumer specifications, once a Contract is made, that Contract may not be cancelled by you other than as provided specifically in these Terms and Conditions.
6. AVAILABILITY AND DELIVERY
6.1 Specified delivery schedules are estimates of delivery times only. Actual delivery times may vary. Such specified delivery schedules generally denote planned shipment times and are not binding on print24. The estimated delivery period is specified in business days: Mondays to Fridays, excluding public holidays.
6.2 You acknowledge that an estimated delivery date is dependant upon receipt and confirmation by print24 of all data, payments, and email notices, before 12:00 noon on the date of the Order's submission. Prompt and proper fulfillment by you of your obligations is required.
7. RISK AND TITLE
7.1 Risk of loss for the Products is passed to you at the time of shipment. If Products are ready for dispatch and shipment, or acceptance of Products is delayed for reasons which are not the fault of print24, risk of loss for the Products passes to you upon your receipt of notice from print24 that the Products are ready for shipment.
7.2 Ownership of the Products will pass to you only when print24 receives full payment of all sums due, including delivery charges.
8. PRICE AND PAYMENT
8.1 The prices of any Products will be as quoted on print24's website from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
8.2 These prices quoted on the print24 website are exclusive of tax and shipping costs.
8.3 These prices apply only where the order data on which the prices are based does not change after print24 sends you an Order Confirmation. Costs attributable to changes specified by you after print24 has sent an Order Confirmation will be charged separately.
8.4 print24 reserves the right to change its prices at any time, provided that any price change will not affect Products for which we have already sent you an Order Confirmation.
8.5 print24's website contains a large number of Products and it is always possible that, despite our best efforts, some items may on occasion be incorrectly priced. We will verify prices as part of our dispatch procedures so that, where a Product's correct price is less than the stated price, we will charge the lower, correct amount. If a Product's correct price is higher than the price stated on our website, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or cancel your Order and notify you of such cancellation.
8.6 Payment for all Products must be by credit card (MasterCard, Amex or Visa only) or Paypal, or by payment in advance.
8.7 print24 will send invoices solely by email with a qualified electronic signature. By submitting an order, you agree to this form of invoicing. Payments for an Order will be due regardless of whether and when an invoice is issued.
8.8 Unless specified otherwise on the Order Confirmation, the gross total price will be due for payment immediately upon receipt of the Order Confirmation.
9. PRINTING SERVICES, TRANSMISSION AND CONVERSION OF PRINT DATA, AND PRINT DATA ERRORS
9.1 The printing services performed by print24 will be carried out in accordance with the standards, policies, and procedures developed by the International Digital Enterprise Alliance, Inc. (IDEAlliance), General Requirements and Applications for Commercial Offset Lithography (GRAcOL).
9.2 print24 reserves the right to determine the appropriate method of printing (whether digital or otherwise).
9.3 We will carry out all print orders solely on the basis of the print data sent by you. You acknowledge that differing data formats or other specifications may contribute to errors in the Products. Error-free printing is not warranted or guaranteed.
9.4 You must carefully check print data to determine whether it is suitable for an Order before sending it to us. We will not check print data and you alone bear the risk of any errors in the printed Products due to incorrect data supplied by you. Products printed in accordance with specifications in print data supplied to print24 will not be considered defective.
9.5 You are responsible for the successful transmission to print24 of print files needed for print24 to fulfill your Order; print24 is not liable for such transmission or any order until it is actually received by print24 and an Order Confirmation is issued.
9.6 At your express request, where technically feasible, print24 will endeavor to process formats other than those specified in fact sheet. If errors occur as a result of using these non-specified formats, responsibility will be borne by you and not by print24, and such Products will not be considered defective or incorrect.
9.7 print24 can convert print data not sent in CMYK mode, but such conversion will be at your risk. You acknowledge that conversion of RGB data or ICC color profiles will naturally result in the printed Products deviating in color from the original supplied to print24, and you will be solely liable for these deviations. Any deviations in color of printed Products caused by such conversion will not be considered defective.
9.8 If you send files created using the online design application FREEDESIGN® that do not correspond to the agreed RGB color mode, you will be solely responsible for deviations in color. You acknowledge that the use of files in CMYK color mode or attached ICC color profiles will naturally result in the printed Products deviating in color from the original supplied to print24, and you will be solely liable for these deviations.
10. COMPLAINTS AND DEFECTS
10.1 Defects or inaccuracies in delivered goods must be reported to us within two (2) weeks of receipt; otherwise, all sales are final.
10.2 Complaints made solely because you have failed to heed the information on requirements for print data or failed to provide print data that satisfies such requirements will not be considered. This shall apply in particular to printed matter that is based on RGB colors, and in which the resolution is too low or in which non-embedded fonts are used.
10.3 Slight deviations in color will not be regarded as defects, including, without limitation, deviations in color between different Orders carried out by print24.
10.4 Deviations of 0.04 inches or fewer for mis-trimmed, folded, and stapled products will not be regarded as defects.
10.5 Short or excess shipments of up to 10 % of the ordered print run that are customary in the trade must be accepted by you, provided they are reasonable. You will be charged for the actual supplied quantity.
10.6 If print24 is able to complete only a portion of your Order, we will, at our discretion, either contact you for instructions before dispatching the Product, or cancel your Order and notify you of such cancellation.

16. EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL

17.1 If print24 fails, at any time, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations, or any of these Terms and Conditions, or if print24 fails to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which it is entitled, such failure will not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and will not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.

(c) $ 35.50 for a gross Order value of over $ 740.00
by way of liquidated damages or, if greater, such sums incurred by print24 as at the date of cancellation.

If you cancel an order for which you have already paid, print24 has the right to retain an amount equal to the liquidated damages owed by you to print24 under this Section 18.
If any of these Terms and Conditions, or any provisions of a Contract, are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful, or unenforceable to any extent, they will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions, which will continue to be valid and enforceable to the fullest extent permitted by law.
