We will charge the user’s credit card for the remaining balance due once the project has been completed and is shipped.

Our Cancellation Policy and Refund Policy (see below) are still in full effect for Payment Terms purchases.

ORDER APPROVAL

The customer is fully responsible for final proof and layout approval prior to the printing process.

Conquest Graphics is NOT LIABLE for errors in a final product caused by any of the following, including, but not limited to:

Misspelling, Graphics, Bleeds, Grammar, Damaged Fonts, Digital Artifacts that are Not Visible on Screen, Punctuation, Wrong Cuts, Incorrect or Missing Folds, Incorrect back up of supplied file(s), Finished Product Size, or any errors resulting from a failure to read and comply with information provided in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and File Preparation Guide sections of the Conquest Graphics website.

ORDER CANCELLATION

Conquest Graphics accepts cancellation of orders prior to approval of a proof. We will promptly inform you of any cancellation charges that may apply. Upon cancellation, any costs (labor, administrative fees, credit card fees, etc.) already borne by Conquest Graphics will be subtracted from your refund.

COLOR PROOFING AND MATCHING

Conquest Graphics offers two proofing methods:

  • Electronic Proofs: An electronic proof in PFD format is available for any of our printed products. An electronic proof is an industry-accepted method for approving correct size and layout, content, and for making non-critical qualitative decisions about color. Once all of the files needed for your job are uploaded to our website, we will check your files, and email you a link to your PDF proof within 2 business hours.
  • Contract Proofs: A contract proof is a hard-copy proof that is intended to closely match press output, and is available at additional cost for projects where color match is more critical. Because contract proofs are not electronic files, they must be shipped to you for approval, and you must ship them back to us before we can put your project on press. Most contract proofs are printed and shipped the same business day. Contract proofs for Catalogs and Magazines over 16 pages will ship the next business day. Contract proofs may be shipped via UPS Next Day Air, or UPS Ground.

For projects where color match is critical, the only guaranteed proofing method is a contract proof. Your approval of either an electronic proof or contract proof is a binding agreement between you and Conquest Graphics that your project is correct, and ready to print. All contract proofs are property of Conquest Graphics and therefore must be returned before your project can begin production. If you would like a copy of the proof for your records, you will need to purchase it at the time the original proofs are run.

All printed materials are manufactured according to industry standard ink and colorant densities. Exact match to electronic proofing methods are not always possible. Conquest Graphics is not liable for color matching or ink density on electronic proofs approved by customers. Electronic proofs will predict design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color match or density.

Conquest Graphics uses the very latest high-quality reproduction equipment and techniques. We do our very best to match gradient densities of each color to ensure quality results. However, color perception is very subjective, and Conquest Graphics is not liable for the final appearance of printed colors.

We print on coated paper as a standard selection for all of our products except business cards, where we offer a choice of coated and uncoated paper stocks. Please note that when printing on uncoated paper, we cannot guarantee color match due to the tendency of uncoated papers to absorb more ink than our coated papers. Coated papers will generally yield a superior result for projects that require moderate or heavy ink coverage. Some projects can be printed on C1S (Coated 1 Side) paper stocks. The same issues apply to the uncoated side of a C1S that apply to any uncoated paper. Also, C1S stocks tend to be more prone to paper curl than stocks that are coated on both sides. We are not responsible for paper curl that occurs when printing on C1S papers.

Please note that there are a limited number of paper specifications that are published by paper manufacturers. These include brightness, caliper (thickness), and for text weight papers, opacity. Conquest Graphics guarantees that all of our standard papers will have a brightness between 88 and 96, and that our standard text weight papers will have an opacity between 90 and 97. We will also guarantee that the caliper or thickness of our standard papers will measure within +/- 10% of the manufacturer-supplied specification.

Although we guarantee that our standard papers will meet the above specifications, because of pricing and availability issues, we cannot guarantee that the exact same brand paper will be used from one project to another. However, we will always source our papers from the same stable, reliable vendors. Paper manufacturers may also change the specifications of their papers at any time without notice.

Conquest Graphics uses gang-run offset printing methods whenever possible. Under certain conditions, we reserve the right to manufacture some products using digital printing technology. Aqueous coating is not currently available for digitally printed products. Please go to our Digital Printing page for more information on our digital printing capabilities.

Important: Gang-run printing is a process whereby multiple (and different) customer jobs are combined on a large press sheet, and run at the same time. For example, we may put 4 different customers’ 8.5 x 11 flyers, postcards, and business cards on one press sheet, and then run the sheet 1000 times to get 4 sets of 1000 flyers, postcards, and business cards for each customer order. This process allows us to spread the expensive initial setup cost of running a full-color, offset print project across 4 different customers.

The application of a coating or varnish may affect or change the appearance of the printed colors. Conquest Graphics is not liable for the final color appearance of coated or varnished products.

CUSTOMER-SUPPLIED ARTWORK OR GRAPHICS FILES

All customer-supplied files, including artwork, layouts, and images must be in CMYK color mode. Conquest Graphics is not responsible for color shifts that result from RGB to CMYK conversions.

Conquest Graphics is not liable for errors in a final product caused by any of the following, including, but not limited to:

Misspelling, Graphics, Bleeds, Grammar, Damaged Fonts, Digital Artifacts that are Not Visible on Screen, Punctuation, Wrong Cuts, Incorrect or Missing Folds, Incorrect back up of supplied file(s), Finished Product Size, or any errors resulting from a failure to read and comply with information provided in our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and File Preparation Guide sections of the Conquest Graphics website.

All customer-supplied files, including artwork, layouts, and images must be at least 200 dpi minimum resolution. Conquest Graphics is not responsible for poor reproduction quality of customer-supplied images that do not meet the stated resolution standards.

PROVIDER-SUPPLIED MATERIALS

All digital and analog artwork files, printing plates, films, proofs, tapes, disks, electronic media, and any other items supplied by or designed by Conquest Graphics remain the exclusive property of Conquest Graphics.

Original customer-supplied artwork files and any associated customer-supplied transport or storage media will remain the property of the customer.

REFUNDS AND CREDITS (TOTAL SATISFACTION GUARANTEE)

Conquest Graphics stands behind its work, and we guarantee that you will be completely satisfied with the quality of your printed piece, or we will reprint your order at no additional charge or refund the printed product purchase price, subject to the following:

  • Our Total Satisfaction Guarantee does not apply to shipping claims (see RETURN and SHIPPING policies below).
  • Our Total Satisfaction Guarantee is limited to reprinting of the original order quantity or a refund of the purchase price of printed product.
  • You must return 100% of the original order, at your cost, before a reprint or a refund will be issued.
  • Maximum monetary refund per order or customer is $1000. The only alternative for product value greater than $1000 is reprinting your order.
  • Our Total Satisfaction Guarantee does not cover the cost of mailing services or postage.
  • Our Total Satisfaction Guarantee does not apply to any issues that directly result from the quality or arrangement of files/art you provide as evident on the proof you approve.
  • No refunds or credits will be issued for logo design, photography, and/or graphic design services.

Conquest Graphics allows for ± 1/32” tolerance for each bindery function.

Conquest Graphics makes every effort to package final products so that they are not damaged in shipment. Sometimes, however, these precautions do not protect the shipped product because of the way the boxes are handled by the shipper. Therefore, Conquest Graphics does not guarantee against damage that is caused by the shipper, though we will assist you in claiming those damages.

OVERS AND UNDERS

In most cases, we will ship you a slightly higher quantity than you ordered, at no additional charge. Sometimes, we may ship a slightly smaller quantity than you ordered. Printing industry trade standards allow for overages and underages of up to 5%. If you will be sending your print order to a mailing processor or need a guaranteed quantity, we suggest that you order at least 5% over the minimum quantity you need.

We digitally weigh all orders that leave our facilities to ensure that the correct number of pieces are delivered to our customers, or to outside mail processors. We are not responsible for errors, waste, or spoilage that occurs at outside operations like mail processors.

RETURN POLICY

You must notify Conquest Graphics of any defects discovered in the ordered product within 6 business days of order acceptance or receipt of the product. In order to receive replacement, you must return (at your own expense) 100% of the received product within 30 calendar days from the time when the ordered product delivery was taken.

All charges related to expedited delivery (Rush Printing or Shipping) are not refundable, including those charges related to orders that are returned for any reason.

TURNAROUND DEFINITION AND GUARANTEE

Definition of Turnaround: Turnaround is the actual time it takes from when you approve your proof to when the job is ready for delivery. Shipping time and USPS delivery time are not included in the overall turnaround time. Actual delivery date depends on the shipping method chosen or on the USPS for jobs that are mailed. Please note that selecting the “Mail” option will add two days to the overall turnaround time.

Weekends and observed holidays are not counted towards turnaround. Time required for photography, design services, and mailing also does not count towards turnaround.

Conquest Graphics is not responsible for production delays caused by errors in customer-supplied files.

Cut-off Time: Proofs that are approved after 5 PM Eastern Time will begin processing on the next business day.

Turnaround Guarantee: Once you have approved your proof(s), we guarantee our turnaround. If we exceed the specified turnaround, we will provide a prorated refund of any rush charges, or we will provide a complimentary rush service on your next order.

SHIPPING, DELIVERY, AND TRANSFER OF TITLE

Conquest Graphics will always act to make sure that any production difficulties do not delay delivery schedules. In no case shall Conquest Graphics be liable for any consequential or damages resulting from any delay in shipment or delivery.

Conquest Graphics will always act to make sure that delivery schedules are met. However, unexpected equipment failure, malfunction, and/or technical problems may delay the manufacturing process. In case of delay caused by technical difficulty, rush charges/fees may be refunded, waived, or otherwise credited on a prorated basis where applicable, at our sole discretion. However, technical difficulty will not be grounds for order cancellation.

You agree not to hold Conquest Graphics liable for delays in shipments caused by weather conditions, shipping company delays, international customs issues, or any other circumstances beyond Conquest Graphics' direct control. Conquest Graphics shipment and delivery dates are calculated based upon estimates provided by our suppliers.

You agree that the shipping terms for all products are FOB shipping point and ownership transfers from Conquest Graphics to the customer upon shipment. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the Shipper. Conquest Graphics is not responsible for delays, errors, damage, or losses that occur as a result of the shipping process.

Loss or damage claims can only be filed for orders over $50.00 US in value and can only be filed after 30 days from package shipment.
