Please review your proof thoroughly prior to approval.

Please note, application of UV coating or lamination may affect or change the appearance of the printed colors. We are not liable for the final color appearance of a laminated product(s).
Customer is Fully Responsible for Everything Included in The Final Approved Proof

By placing an order with us 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 a final printed piece or the actual artwork or product they represent. Under no circumstances, a reprint will 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. We will guarantee color accuracy and match if you order a hard copy proof from us. Please note hard copy proof will cost you a little bit more amount.
