    Standard File Review

    Before you approve file for printing, make sure that your design does not have errors prior to print that will result in a bad print product. Our file specialists will review files for the following common errors (but ultimate responsibility to check such errors is yours):

    • Full bleed
    • Text and content out of zone
    • Spot UV alignment

    Other errors our file specialists will not check for include but are not limited to the following:

    • Spelling Errors and typos
    • Color out of gamut

    Limited Warranty for Products Ordered. Postersigns.com guarantees prints you order and pay for will be in accordance with CMYK industry standards for pleasing color. We offer no guarantee of “match-print” color fidelity and cannot prevent slight color shift throughout an order. Postersigns.com does not guarantee color will match the preview as it appears on a customer’s monitor, because monitor colors vary. Postersigns.com is not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes. We recommend all custom designs be designed in CMYK and uploaded in CMYK. You may also upload in RGB if you choose, but the color will be converted to CMYK and may not be accurate. If you do upload in CMYK, we ask you to design using our preferred color profile for better color accuracy. Postersigns.com uses the GRACoL2006 Coated V2 color profile.

    Orders will not be defective due to printing errors, coating errors, cutting errors, or bindery errors if they were designed within Postersigns.com design specifications.

    You may not be able to print or write on the product after purchase. Postersigns.com’ products are often coated and can be difficult to print on. UV coated products cannot be printed on while matte covered products may require commercial printers. Satin matte finish allows for easier writability compared to our gloss finish. It is your responsibility to test using a sample and verify that your printer or pen will work before placing an order. Our Media Kit Samples can be ordered online for free.

    Postersigns.com cannot be held responsible for un-usable QR codes and /or Microsoft Tags after print. Please test the code with the application before file submission. Immediately upon receipt you should inspect all Products to ensure there are no defects and that the order is complete. If a print is found to be defective, Postersigns.com require fanned out photos to show a sampling of the defective product from the front, middle, and end of the package(s) prior to taking any action.

    The foregoing warranty does not include defects due to customer errors, such as incorrect file submission in accordance with our specifications, duplicate orders, customer misunderstandings of turnaround time, slight color variances within four color (CMYK) industry standards for pleasing color, disregard for cutting and folding tolerances within stated limits on the website, incorrect paper, cover stocks and coating options chosen for print, undeliverable packages/3rd delivery attempts or refusal or delivery and orders returned without an RMA. No compensation is offered for any of the above or below items.
