ARTWORK & DESIGN

Custom art work provided by Screen Designs Inc. is billed at a standard rate of $35.00 per hour.  Conversion of raster images (where possible) such as .jpegs, .bmp, .png, .gif, .psd will result in the $35.00 per hour art fee.  Photoshop (PSD) files are not vectored and will be assessed a $35 per hour fee to convert/re-create to a usable vectored format (where possible.)

All custom artwork created is the property of Screen Designs Inc. unless the client pays for the production of the artwork as part of their service.

If client is providing artwork, it must be in a vector format in solid spot colors. If 4-color process printing is required, the required artwork format is CMYK at 300 dpi or higher. If artwork is not in the required format, art charges may occur.  All text used must be converted to outlines or paths.

If client art is provided, client must also supply Screen Designs Inc. with all original art files in the programs they were created so changes can be made by Screen Designs Inc. if necessary. Screen Designs Inc. cannot be held responsible for bad artwork that is approved by the client. All projects will be allowed corrections for artwork at the sole discretion of Screen Designs Inc. Art and project corrections cannot include work outside of the scope of the original estimate.

While every effort is made to reproduce an imprint just as the artwork, variations in ink and printing processes make it impossible for us to guarantee exact color representation and consistency. All clients must provide proof of ownership before copyrighted materials will be printed. Screen Designs Inc. will not be responsible for (and reserves the right to collect) legal fees incurred due to copyright infringement.

The remainder of the balance will be due upon receipt of the order. Screen Designs Inc. reserves the right to charge a late payment fee to all invoices that go beyond the limit of their terms. Overdue accounts may also be subject to credit reporting.

CANCELLATION POLICY

If you need to cancel an order prior to us having decorated the product, you may do so in most cases.  Screen Designs Inc. reserves the right to charge a restocking fee up to 25%, as well as any additional cost to cover any time, labor, and out of pocket costs we may have expended prior to production.  If your goods have already been shipped to our facility, you are responsible for paying any shipping charges incurred to return the merchandise to the vendor/s. If your order was carried out as stated on the proof you approved then we cannot accept a return. If you are uncertain about receiving a digital proof, you may request an embroidered sew-out so you can check quality, sizing and colors.

*Embroidery Cancellation* If your embroidery tape has already been produced, you are responsible for covering the cost of the custom embroidery digitizing. Once your goods have been embroidered, your order may not be cancelled, as altered goods are no longer able to be returned to the vendor.

*Screen Printing Cancellation* If your screens have already been produced, and/or artwork has been produced, you are responsible for covering the cost of the screens and/or artwork. Once your goods have been screen printed, your order may not be cancelled, as altered goods are no longer able to be returned to the vendor.

*Promotional Item Cancellation* Promotional item order cancellations are handled on a case by case basis. Call with questions/concerns.
