14. FULL COLOUR PRINTING

Every effort will be made to obtain the best colour reproduction but because of the process involved, the Company cannot guarantee an exact colour or texture match between the Customer's original colour photography or transparency or electronic file and the Goods.

Customers who require colour reproduction of a specific standard and who wish to check the colour reproduction prior to printing must order a colour machine proof, in writing, when placing the Order. An additional charge will be made for this.

On supplied artwork it is the Customer's responsibility to ensure that the colour images submitted are suitable for the Goods. The Company cannot accept liability for unsatisfactory results caused by unsuitable or inferior colour images.  Details can be seen in our artwork guide.

15. COLOUR MATCHING

The Company can mix the Customer's special colour requirements or order special colours to be mixed by manufacturers if an ink sample is supplied but the Company cannot guarantee to reproduce it exactly on additional runs or repeat Orders. For this reason the selection of a Pantone colour is always recommended in order to ensure the best chance of accurate colour matching. If colour matching is of particular importance to the Customer then the Customer must order a machine proof the cost of which will be quoted at the time of the request.

16.3

The Customer shall indemnify the Company against any claim by any party resulting from the code or symbol not reading or not reading correctly for any reason, except to the extent that such claim arises from any failure of the Company to comply with Clause 22.1 above which is not attributable to error falling within the tolerances generally accepted in the trade in printing of this nature.
