ORDER TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Certain products available on this Site are fulfilled by one of our related websites. In such cases, we will specify that your order of such products are subject to the order terms and conditions for that website. If you purchase custom apparel products made available within the sub-domain (“Apparel Products”), then you acknowledge and agree that your order of those Apparel Products is subject to the Order Terms and Conditions set forth at that sub-domain, and not the Site’s Order Terms and Conditions set forth below.
All prices and amounts shown on this Site are in U.S. Dollars (USD), unless otherwise noted. All prices set forth on the Site and stated herein are based on current costs and subject to change without notice and payment amounts and other terms may be subject to additional agreements between User and Wilkinson Printing.
If a User submits an order on the Site to purchase printing products, mailing services, design services or other services, the User agrees that all charges, taxes and shipping/handling fees will automatically be charged to the credit card or paid by User with an approved payment method.
Production of all items ordered hereunder is subject to the terms outlined below in the “Printing Turnaround Time” section, and will not begin until an order is fully paid, including shipping and handling fees, if applicable except where Wilkinson Printing has explicitly agreed to specific delayed payment terms (e.g. Net 30) with the User prior to placing an order. Users who have delayed payment agreements with Wilkinson Printing are required to provide payment in accordance with the terms of their applicable payment agreement(s).
Once the print file(s) associated with an order have been approved by the User as described below in the “Printing Turnaround Time” section, and will not begin until an order is fully paid, the order will be “In Production” and no changes will be allowed to the print files, job characteristics, or printing turnaround time. After an order is In Production, the entire amount of the order along with applicable taxes and shipping/handling fees shall be deemed fully paid and non-refundable, except as provided for in the Return & Refund Policy below. Additional Service Fees, List Purchase and USPS Postal Costs are non-refundable. Except as provided for in the Return & Refund Policy below, any payment received from the User shall be deemed fully paid to Wilkinson Printing and non-refundable at a rate of twenty percent (20%) for each calendar month that passed after the date of the User’s initial submission even where the print job never reaches the “In Production” or shipment phase due to no fault of Wilkinson Printing (e.g. User fails to respond to approval of proof/print job, User fails to provide information to complete the print job or shipment, User otherwise fails to cancel his or her order prior to reaching the “In Production” phase, etc.).
Return & Refund Policy
At Wilkinson Printing, we strive to provide our Users with the best possible experience. If you are not 100% satisfied with your order for any reason, please contact our customer service department.
All policies are subject to change without prior notification. Defective product refunds and reprints shall not exceed the amount paid by the User or $1,000.00 (whichever is less). Determination of defect is at the sole discretion of Wilkinson Printing. In most cases, Users will be requested to submit digital photos documenting the product defect and/or ship the defective products back to customer service. Free expedited reprint on any orders lost in transit is limited to orders less than or equal to $250. Turnaround and shipping for reprint orders will vary depending upon available production capacity and manager’s discretion.
Direct mail services including printing, mailing services, list services and design services are not subject to the foregoing return policies. Refunds or reprint on direct mail orders will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and any refund/reprint shall be determined by Wilkinson Printing in its sole discretion. Under absolutely no circumstance will postage be refunded for any reason once it has been physically applied to an item ordered, regardless if it is yet to be mailed or not.
Our Sales Tax Policy
Wilkinson Printing charges sales tax on orders picked-up from or shipped to addresses in accordance with state and local regulations unless you are tax exempt. If you are tax exempt, you need to send or fax to us your tax exemption certificate.
If, after the User has paid the invoice, it is determined that more tax is due, then the User must promptly remit the required taxes to the taxing authority or immediately reimburse the provider for any additional taxes paid.
If requested, an online proof will be available for your review after we have received your files for print. Actual time will vary depending on our current workload. Jobs with proof requests will not be sent to press without your approval unless the proof approval is explicitly waived. Should you not approve your proof, we will print it as is and are thereby not at all responsible for the final quality or accuracy of the product. It is the User’s responsibility to log in to their Account and check on their proof. We are not liable for delays in the order caused by User’s non-approval of the proof. We do reserve the right to, at our discretion, make minor changes to the proof and product as needed for the efficacy of printing.
An online proof is by no means an accurate color reproduction of your final printed piece but is the final opportunity for you to check the layout, bleeds, crops and final text. Electronic proofs do not show transparency and over print issues. Nor do they show color change from RGB or Pantone to CMYK.
The proof must be treated as independent from the original submitted file and thoroughly reviewed prior to approval. It should be checked against the original file for possible errors in layout, copy, spacing, punctuation or image placement. User is fully responsible for all that is contained in the final approved proof.
Wilkinson Printing offers hard copy proofs which show reasonable likeness to the final printed pieces. Such proofs are recommended for color-critical art and must be requested by the User when the print order is made. Hard copy proofs are printed on a substrate different from the actual paper stock and while its main purpose is to show color, variations may occur depending on the finish selected (AQ, matte, UV) for the final print job. We do not offer hard copy proofs for art that would be printed on uncoated paper.
The request for a hard copy proof may involve an additional fee and would extend the amount of time needed to complete the job. For orders where a hard copy proof has been requested, the approval must be received by Wilkinson Printing on or before our published cut-off times. We will make every reasonable effort to match colors in production when a hard copy proof is requested. However, it is the User’s responsibility to determine if they need a hard copy proof with their print order.
An order may not be canceled once it is “In Production”. If the order is still in the preflight or proofing stage, it may be canceled subject to the following fees, when applicable:
Orders placed, paid for and then canceled before 5pm EST on the same day may be refunded in full or booked as store credit to be applied to future orders;
Orders below $100 will not be subject to cancellation fees;
Orders from $100 to $500 will be subject to a $15.00 cancellation fee;
Orders $500 and above will be subject to a cancellation fee of 3.5% of the full order amount
Wilkinson Printing will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density (as viewed in a 5000K light booth). Because of inherent limitations with the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements, the accuracy of color reproduction is not guaranteed. By placing an order with UsetheW.com, you agree to this limitation. We will try our best to match the gradient density of each color, but we accept no responsibility for color variations between submitted files and the final printed piece.
Under no circumstances will a reprint be honored for color variations that have occurred during the printing process. We are not liable for color matching or ink density on screen proofs that you approve. Screen proofs will predict design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color or density. Application of UV coating may affect or change the appearance of the printed colors. We are not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product.
No Liability for Errors
Wilkinson Printing is not liable for errors in a final product caused by any of the following reasons:
Spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors
Low resolution or low-quality graphics and images
Artwork files that are not created following our specifications
Variances in color from the conversion of Pantone or RGB colors to CMYK
Errors in user-selected options such as size, quantity, paper and finish
Duplicate orders submitted by the User
Incorrect files uploaded
Incorrect file orientation
Cracking on folds
Damage to products after delivery to User
Incorrect or undeliverable shipping address
User is responsible for reviewing their files and correcting any issues prior to placing the order.
Over print and under print Policy
Due to the gang run method that Wilkinson Printing uses, we cannot guarantee that every order will be the exact number of items which was ordered. Wilkinson Printing can only guarantee that it will come within plus or minus 10% of the number of items ordered. Although rare, in the event of an under run, we will either refund or give you Store Credit for the number of pieces we were “short” if over 10% of the order quantity.
Our prepress department checks all submitted artwork files before printing, but you are still 100% responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and we encourage you to proofread all files carefully before submitting to UPrinting.com. Wilkinson Printing is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted artwork. By submitting the artwork to Wilkinson Printing, you certify that you have the right to use the image(s) in your artwork files. DO NOT send any “one-of-kind” transparencies, prints or artwork. Although we take every precaution to safeguard your materials, we are NOT responsible for loss or damage of images or artwork.
Under these Terms of Service, you agree that you will NOT upload any artwork files consisting of the following material: offensive, indecent or improper material, nudity, any material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable law; and any material that could infringe rights of privacy, publicity, copyrights or other intellectual property rights without the permission of the owner of these rights and the persons who are shown in the material if applicable. We will refuse an order based on foregoing reasons or for any other reason which in our opinion may be illegal in nature or an infringement on the rights of any third party. You accept full legal liability for the content of material processed and printed on your behalf and under your instructions. We reserve the right to refuse an order without disclosing a reason.
Wilkinson Printing may also provide artwork design tools which offer a limited number of elements, including icons, fonts, color schemes, and design effects. We reserve the right to use and offer all such elements to other parties in the future. Other Wilkinson Printing Users may use the same design tools to create images that may have similar or identical combinations of these elements. Wilkinson Printing provides no warranty of any kind that artwork created using the design tool will not infringe, or be subject to a claim of infringing, on the trademark, copyright or other rights of another party. It is solely your responsibility to obtain the advice of an attorney regarding whether any image, mark, logo name or design is legally available for your use and does not infringe on another party’s rights.
We may, based on our sole discretion, set limits to the maximum number of days that we shall retain designs or other uploaded files, as well as the maximum storage space that we would allocate to such files. Wilkinson Printing is not responsible for the deletion or failure to store any file whether uploaded or designed on our website. We reserve the right to delete any file stored which has been inactive for an extended period of time, or for any other reason, without prior notice.
Promotional and Referral Codes
Wilkinson Printing may offer certain promotional codes, referral codes or similar promotional coupons (“Promotional Codes”) that may be redeemed for discounts, or other features or benefits related to the Site, subject to any additional terms that Wilkinson Printing establishes. You agree that Promotional Codes: (a) must be used in a lawful manner; (b) must be used for the intended audience and purpose; (c) may not be duplicated, sold or transferred in any manner, or made available to the general public (whether posted to a public forum, coupon collecting service, or otherwise), unless expressly permitted by Wilkinson Printing; (d) may be disabled or have additional conditions applied to them by Wilkinson Printing at any time for any reason without liability to Wilkinson Printing; (e) may only be used pursuant to the specific terms that Wilkinson Printing establishes for such Promotional Code; (f) are not valid for cash or other credits or points offered via the Site; and (g) may expire prior to your use.
Printing Turnaround Time
Printing turnaround time commences from the time we receive your print-ready files, approval for your proof and full payment for your order. If you have chosen to waive your proof approval, printing turnaround time commences from the time we have received your print-ready files and full payment for your order. For orders that do not have complete digital source files, or have files that are not print-ready, printing turnaround time commences from the time we receive acceptable print-ready files regardless of when payment was made.
Unless you choose Pick Up or Mailing Services, you need to select one of the shipping methods presented to you on the Site. All shipping may be done using FedEx, UPS or other freight carriers. Wilkinson Printing reserves the right to use the most appropriate carrier for the required transit time and destination. When choosing a shipping method, please remember that the estimated shipping transit time is based on the number of business days in transit and does not include weekends, holidays or the day the package is picked up by the carrier. For instance, a product shipped Two Day service and picked up on a Thursday would be delivered by end of day Monday.
Wilkinson Printing’s responsibility is limited to preparing your printing order and turning it over to the carrier for shipping. Shipping transit times vary and Wilkinson Printing assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive a job on time. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc.
Wilkinson Printing is not liable for damages that occur during shipping. Pick up orders will be kept for 30 days from the send date of the pick-up notification email. If the order has not been picked up from Wilkinson’s facility within 30 days, it will be recycled. Wilkinson Printing reserves the right to modify the shipping option selected by you and retain any related difference in charges between shipping options, where we complete the job prior to the turnaround time selected by you and there will be no adverse material impact on the target arrival date (see Target Arrival section below).
Target arrival dates are calculated by adding the printing turnaround time to the shipping transit time. Both printing and shipping times are based on business days only and do not include weekends or holidays.
If you have requested a Hardcopy Proof, factor in approximately six business days to receive and approve your proof. For Next Day Hardcopy Proof, factor in an additional two business days. Please understand that target arrival dates are estimates, not guarantees. Wilkinson Printing assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc.
Wilkinson Printing offers mailing services to users who upload their own mailing lists “Uploaded Lists” and to users who rent a mailing list from Wilkinson Printing “Rented Lists”. It is the User’s responsibility to understand and comply with current mailing restrictions and all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations regarding direct mail marketing before placing the order with Wilkinson Printing.
While in our possession, Uploaded Lists remain the exclusive property of the User and shall be used only with User’s instructions. User is responsible for checking the accuracy of Uploaded Lists before submitting to us and to make sure that there is no confidential information or notes not meant for the recipient. Uploaded Lists will not be sold or offered for use to any other party, and we will not utilize the list for any other purpose. Wilkinson Printing contracts the services of third party vendors for the procurement of Rented Lists. If you use a Rented List on UsetheW.com, you acknowledge that you have no proprietary rights to the data in rented lists, and that it is your responsibility to use it as per the vendor’s terms by which it was rented. Rented Lists are only available for your marketing purposes. You do not have the right to transfer or sell Rented Lists to other parties.
We offer a Delivery Guarantee of 92% on Rented Consumer Lists and 85% on Rented Business Lists if mailed within 30 days of the order. This guarantee covers only the accuracy of the mailing address and not of any other information in the list such as names and other demographic data. If actual delivery to addresses in a Rented List is lower than the guaranteed amount, we’ll refund $0.40 per address for each failed address that falls between the actual amount delivered and the guaranteed amount.
All mailing delivery dates are estimates, not guarantees. Wilkinson Printing’s responsibility is limited to preparing your mailing and completing delivery to the U.S. Postal Service (“USPS”). Wilkinson Printing’s responsibility ends when the job is delivered to the US Postal Service Business Mail Entry Unit. In no event shall Wilkinson Printing be liable for USPS performance failures or delivery delays.
Wilkinson Printing shall be liable to rectify printing and mailing errors only to the extent of re-mailing a correction or corrected job as soon as possible, and allowable damages shall be limited to the value of the printing work performed. In no case is Wilkinson Printing liable for loss of business; incidental or consequential damages; or costs in excess of billing for services related to the specific job. Wilkinson Printing is also not liable for returned mail pieces that are undeliverable for any reason. The User will defend and hold Wilkinson Printing harmless in any suit or court action brought against by others for alleged damages, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorney’s fees), liabilities or losses resulting from circumstances where, acting as the User’s agent, uses copy, photographs, or illustrations that are believed by others to be degrading, libelous or harmful to their reputations, images, or standing in the community or which in Wilkinson Printing’s sole judgment is an infringement on a trademark, or trade name, or service mark, or copyright belonging to others, or in a suit or court action brought against for actions of the User or User’s employees which may occur as a result of any mailing service including mailing list rentals.
All complaints must be registered within 24 hours of receipt of your final printing job. If we determine that your job contains manufacturing errors and/or defects, we will rerun your job at no charge.
