Welcome

Please read these Terms and Conditions carefully.

These Terms and Conditions govern your access to this site, as well as all sales of our products, and the provision of services. Printivity may update these Terms and Conditions from time to time without notice to you (but the terms existing at the time of any purchase shall apply to such purchase regardless of subsequent revisions). By continued use of our site, or through purchases of our product or our services, you agree to be bound by these Terms and Conditions.

In addition, when using particular Printivity service, you may be subject to additional posted guidelines or rules applicable to our affiliates or subcontractors, or specific to such services as are posted on our site (or on the sites of our affiliates or subcontractors). All such guidelines or rules are hereby incorporated by reference into these Terms and Conditions.

Printivity currently provides you access to a large collection of on-line design, marketing and printing resources, and will make, sell and deliver printed goods to you (collectively, the "Service"). Unless stated otherwise, every new feature that augments or enhances the current Service, including the release of new Printivity features, shall be subject to these Terms and Conditions. The Service is provided "AS-IS" and Printivity shall not be responsible for deletion, missed delivery or failure to store any user communication, design, graphic, or photo that you or any other person customizes or supplies.

Billing and Payments

When an order is placed through the Printivity.com website the customer's credit card, or any other payment method entered on the website, is billed at the same moment that the order is placed.

File Check

Printivity's file check department checks the designs of your uploaded files for your print orders. The file check is designed to ensure that the quality of the production is consistent with your expectations. If the file is not designed properly, the file check department has the authority to request a redesign for proper and optimal print quality. Examples of incorrect designs that may result in a hold of your order include, but are not limited to: incorrect design for full bleed printing, pixelated or low resolution images, and incorrectly paginated booklet orders.

Bypassing The File Check Recommendation

You have the right to request that a file be printed despite the potential file design issues that Printivity’s file check department may have found.

Effects of Bypassing the File Check Recommendation

If you designate that your order is to be printed despite the recommendation of Printivity's file check department, Printivity has the right to refuse issuing a requested refund or reprint of your order.

Production and Shipping Delays Resulting from Incorrectly Designed Files

The date that your order ships out from our facility may be delayed if there are delays due to incorrectly designed files. The file check department will make its best attempts to promptly communicate to you the nature of the problem and the ideal solution so that you can submit the correct file as quickly as possible.

Effects of sending new/late files or changing your order.

Customers occasionally change their files/order before they've approved their proof, and we accommodate these requests. If your change to the order increases the price of the order, you will be required to pay the difference. Your shipment date may be delayed if the provided files to print are submitted later than 11am PST the same day of submitting your order.

Proofs

Printivity provides customers both online and hardcopy proofs. If requested, either an online or hardcopy proof will be made available for your review. Preparation times for proofs may vary. Your approval of the proof is required prior to processing of the order. Printivity is not liable for delays in the order caused by your non-approval of the proof. Online proofs are not accurate representations of the color reproduction of final orders but provide an opportunity to confirm pagination, layout, binding, and dimensions. Printivity also provides hardcopy proofs which, although not an exact reproduction of the final product, provide a closer likeness to the final product. Hardcopy proofs take time to produce as well as mail and may not be suited for time-sensitive projects. We will make every effort to match colors in production when a hardcopy proof is requested. While Printivity representatives may provide advice, is your responsibility to determine what type of proof you require with your order.

Allowances for sending in new files or changing your order after you have approved your proof.

In most cases, we will accept file/order changes if your proof is not yet approved. However, once your proof has been approved, Printivity may begin printing your project at any time, and reserves the right to refuse to accept any changes to your files and changes to your original order. If your resubmission is accepted, a new proof will be sent and will need to be approved before printing may begin.

Graphic Design
Printivity offers customers design services. This service includes the ideation and creation of the design product. The design product includes a high-resolution, print-ready digital file in the following formats: JPEG, PNG, and PDF. Any other desired file formats must be communicated to us at the beginning of the project. You may be subject to additional fees if unique requests for file formats are not stated at the beginning of the project.

Printivity affirms that our designs are original and therefore owns the rights granted under this agreement, and that the rights granted do not conflict any other agreement. You, the customer, have ownership of any designs that you have purchased. You may use the designs in any media application and are not required to print your purchased design product with Printivity. Printivity retains the right to use the design, or any versions of the design created in the process, within printed and online portfolios and within both printed and digital promotional materials, such as our website and social media posts.

Printivity offers unlimited revisions per project, which is included in the pricing for the design service. However, the turnaround times as stated on our website do not account for revisions. Further revisions will delay the design schedule and the deadline will be updated. Printivity is not liable for delays caused by revisions. You will be subject to additional fees if you request revisions and wish to maintain your original delivery date.

Printivity adheres to a design schedule that will be communicated to you at the beginning of your design project. Your participation and communication during the design process is required to keep your design project on track with the design schedule. Printivity is not liable for any delays caused by your failure to respond by the deadlines provided in the emails we send out to you.

Cancellation Policy

You may cancel any order that has not yet started printing. If you would like to cancel your order, please contact our customer service department via phone or email. To review the current status of your order, please visit our order details page, or your account page for your order history.

Please allow 3-5 days for the payment to process, after we receive the returned goods.

Please note that we do not offer refunds on our design services once the final design file has been sent to you.

Proof of Poor Quality

If a refund or return is being requested, Printivity reserves the right to request proof of low quality or the return of the unsatisfactory products before providing compensation or reproduction of the order. Upon receipt, review and confirmation of poor quality, Printivity will determine whether a refund or replacement is required.

  • Cancellation Policy
  • Effects of Bypassing the File Check Recommendation
  • Shipping
  • Damaged Packages

Shipping

Printivity utilizes third-party carriers to deliver orders and is not liable for delivery problems. Printivity makes no guarantee about time in transit of any shipping method. If you do not receive an order by the expected delivery date, or it arrives damaged, you should email service@Printivity.com or call 1-877-649-5463 and include your order number.

Except for the foregoing limitations, Printivity shall make commercially reasonable efforts to make sure that products ordered before 11:00 am Pacific Time will be delivered on or up to the date you choose during the checkout process. Printivity’s cutoff time of 11:00 am PST is based on the time we receive notification of a payment clearing, and order acceptance in our production system. Therefore, please avoid placing orders close to cutoff time to avoid delays. Orders placed on hold for any reason may encounter delayed deliveries.

Refused or undeliverable orders that are on time are not Printivity’s responsibility and these orders are not subject to reprint, store credit or refund. Orders returned without Return Merchandise Authorization to Printivity as undeliverable may be recycled or eligible for reshipment based on the reason of the failed delivery attempt. Please contact us via e-mail at service@Printivity.com or by phone at 877-649-5463 within 30 days of the scheduled delivery date.

Printivity's responsibility is limited to preparing your printing order and turning it over to the carrier for shipping. Shipping transit times vary and Printivity 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. Packages shipped outside of the country of origin may be charged a duty based on the receiving country's import tax. Delays can occur depending on your country of origin due to customs. Printivity is not responsible for the payment of this fee or any delay caused by customs.

Printivity is not liable for damages or delays that occur during shipping.

If an order is delayed as a result of the fault of Printivity, the sole remedy shall be that Printivity may (a) upgrade of shipping type, (b) compensation of the shipping difference paid in the form of a store credit or refund. Printivity must be contacted via e-mail at service@Printivity.com or by phone at 1-877-649-5463 within 30 days of the scheduled delivery date. During certain periods, Printivity may elect to suspend delivery date guarantees. A suspension of the guarantee supersedes and overrides any promises previously stated.

Lost Packages

When a package is lost in transit, Printivity will, at its option, reprint with the same production terms or issue compensation.

If the package is located by the carrier it will be rerouted to the customer promptly upon discovery. However, if customer receives both original and reprint, customer will be required to pay for the reprint or return at Printivity’s cost. Shipping carriers typically require 10 business days for refund of shipping costs.

If the package is not found, Printivity will require confirmation from the carrier prior to issuing compensation.

Damaged Packages

When packages are damaged in transit, Printivity will reprint with the same production terms or issue compensation. Customer will be required to provide package and contents to carrier.
