14. What is the Artwork Approval Policy? ... BrandComet.com requires that all new orders receive an artwork paper/electronic proof and an order acknowledgment prior to releasing the order to final production. A paper proof will be provided at no cost and is our best representation of what your final print/product will look like. Often the artwork is 100% sized or to scale (as indicated on the artwork) and is only intended to provide an idea as to what the final product will look like when completed. The paper proof and order acknowledgment are checked for misspellings and other mistakes (such as item colors, sizing, imprint color, imprint locations …), but due to order volume, there is inevitably the rare instance that an error might go unnoticed. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you take part in this process by carefully checking your paperwork before signing off and submitting your approval.
15. The Approval Process... BrandComet.com is not responsible for any incorrect interpretations of the artwork or order approval. If there are any questions or if something is confusing, please contact us immediately. We try to catch misspellings; there is a chance that we may not know how to spell a unique word in your artwork. The final image that is approved by you is what goes into production, therefore make sure you look at the final artwork a number of times even running it past others in your office if possible before you approve that final artwork, so that you can have maximum confidence the final result will be to your pleasure.
At the time of reviewing your artwork and proofing your order, if you do notice a mistake, please contact us immediately or make a note it on the paperwork accordingly. We will make any corrections or changes promptly and for no additional charge. All changes must be confirmed in writing (e-mail is acceptable).
Orders approved “As is” will be sent to production exactly as stated. No new proof will be sent.. Orders approved “With Changes” will be printed according to the change(s) and no new proof will be sent or required. Orders marked “Additional Proof Required” will receive a new proof, and final production will not begin until an order “Approved as is” or “Approved with Changes” is received. If you need to make a change, your safest option is requiring an additional proof so you can see how changes have been implemented.
BrandComet.com is not responsible for any typographical errors that are overlooked and later approved by the customer. BrandComet.com cannot be held responsible for any damages that may be incurred as a result of the error or mistake after the order has been printed and accepted by the customer.
BrandComet.com cannot be held responsible for the misprint as a result of an error. Once the customer approves the artwork proof and invoice/order acknowledgment, BrandComet.com cannot guarantee our ability to make any changes to the order. Whether correct or with errors, the order is printed exactly as approved by the customer. For this reason, it is very important to carefully look over all the paperwork before replying with your approval. If an error is discovered after final approval has been given by the customer, please contact us immediately. Although we cannot guarantee we will be able to correct it before it goes into production, the sooner we are made aware of the error, the better chance we can do something to fix it.
