APPROVAL PROCESS

All custom projects require a signed proof/approval from the customer (via fax or email) prior to production. Changes to the artwork MUST appear in writing. One the artwork has been approved, the customer is responsible for cost associated with additional changes to the artwork, new plates and production time. Plate production will not proceed until the final artwork approval and purchase order are received.
