Art Resolution Requirements
All artwork, designs, and images must be provided in a minimum of 300 DPI and CMYK color modes. Imprimerieavantage.com is NOT RESPONSIBLE for images printed as fuzzy, distorted, or pixilated due to low-resolution artwork provided by the customer, especially if it is approved by the customer already. SelectGP.com is also not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes.
Under these Terms and Conditions, you agree that you will NOT upload any artwork files consisting of the following material: offensive, indecent or improper material, any material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable law; and any material that could infringe rights of privacy, publicity, copyrights or other intellectual property rights without the permission of the owner of these rights and the persons who are shown in the material if applicable. We will refuse an order, which in our opinion may be illegal in nature or an infringement on the rights of any third party. You accept full legal liability for the content of material processed and printed on your behalf and under your instructions. We reserve the right to refuse an order without disclosing a reason.
PRODUCTS and SERVICES
Products and services provided by Imprimerieavantage.com are for your personal use only. You agree to abide by these terms of service and not to use these products and services or related messages for any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, “junk mail,” “spam,” “chain letters,” “pyramid schemes,” or any other form of solicitation.
The customer is fully responsible for final proof and layout approval prior to the printing process. Any jobs that have been approved and/or sent to the press cannot be altered or changed due to the nature of the printing process, and no refund will be given.
Imprimerieavantage.com or its subsidiaries collectively referred to herein as “Imprimerieavantage.com”, shall NOT be LIABLE for errors in a final product caused by any of the following reasons: Misspelling, Graphics, Bleeds, Grammar, Damaged Fonts, Punctuation, Wrong Cuts, Incorrect or Missing Folds, Die Lines, Crop Marks, Transparency, Overprint, Cracks on Folds, Finished Product Size, Poor Orientation or Alignment.
An online proof will be available for your review after you have uploaded your files. We strongly urge customers to check the electronic proof of their artwork before submitting the order. No job will be sent to the press without your approval.
An online proof is NOT an accurate color reproduction of your final printed piece but is the final opportunity for you to check the layout, bleeds, crops, and final text. Electronic proofs do not show transparency and overprint issues. They also do not show the color change from RGB or Pantone to CMYK. Therefore, Imprimerieavantage.com will not be liable for color variation between the proof and the printed product. We will try our best to match the colors of the proof and the printed product but please understand that color variation differences are inherent inconsistencies of the printing process and we will not be held responsible for it. It is the customer’s responsibility to determine if the job is color critical.
The proof should be checked by you against the original file for possible errors in layout, copy, spacing, punctuation, or image placement. You, the Customer are fully responsible for all that is contained in the final approved proof, so please make sure you review it thoroughly.
Our prepress department checks all submitted artwork files before printing, but you are still 100% responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and we encourage you to proofread all files carefully before submitting them Imprimerieavantage.com. Imprimerieavantage.com is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted documents. By submitting the artwork to Imprimerieavantage.com, you certify that you have the right to use the image(s) in your artwork files. DO NOT send any “one-of-kind” transparencies, prints, or artwork. Although we take every precaution to safeguard your materials, we are NOT responsible for the loss or damage of images or artwork. Imprimerieavantage.com is also not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes. For submitted artwork, please use CMYK color codes for the best printing results.
Imprimerieavantage.com uses gang-run printing which is subject to a 10% color variance. If a job is color critical, then the necessary attention it needs cannot be attained in a gang-run format. Therefore, the job must be printed by itself without the discounted price of gang-run printing. Color critical jobs require a dedicated run where the press is calibrated specifically to that run and job rather than a gang-run with other print jobs.
Bleed and Margin Requirements
Since cutting cannot be guaranteed to be exactly in the same place for a large number of print products, you must stretch the background (if there is one) 0.125 inch outside of the trim line on each side (this is called a “bleed”) and place all critical elements (text, images, graphic elements, logos, etc.) 0.125 inch inward on each side from the trim line. Anything left too close to the trim line within 0.125 inches inward or 0.125 inches outward may be cut. Please allow for a cutting tolerance of 0.250 inches. We recommend no borders due to shifting in the cutting process because they may appear uneven.
Customers must upload artwork so that the two sides (front and back) of the finished product back up correctly. For flat, folded, and die-cut work, excluding bound products, all pages are backed up head to head (top of the proof on one side lines with top of proof on another side). The head of one side backs up to the head of the other page on two-sided work. Imprimerieavantage.com recommends that you always print the proofs and back them up head to head to make a folding model ensure that your artwork is set up properly, please do this BEFORE you submit the front-side and back-side artwork.
Our automated systems require that art is uploaded as a single, multi-page PDF file. Page sorting is the same as when viewing your book; for example: 28-page booklet or calendar PDF: page 1 = outside front cover; page 2 = inside front cover; page 3-26 = subsequent pages; page 27 = inside back cover; page 28 = outside back cover. Imprimerieavantage.com will not be able to proceed with your bound product order unless these requirements are met.
Full-color jobs that contain large solid areas of black ink should have the black set up as CMYK black (100, 100, 100, 100). Imprimerieavantage.com will not be liable for printing a consistent, solid, and rich black if the artwork is not set up to this specification (rich black should not be used for text because it may cause registration problems).
All information, data, text, photographs, graphics, messages, or other materials are the sole responsibility of the person from which the content originated. By uploading your text and the artwork you, the customer, agree to be held entirely responsible for all the content that you send, upload, transmit or post to imprimerieavantage.com.

Turnaround time on printing orders begins once full payment has been received for your order, AND your print-ready files have been uploaded to your account, attached to your printing job, and approved for printing.
For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided or have submitted files that are not print-ready (and causes a delay), printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s), not from when the order was first submitted.
All turnaround times are based on business days and office hours: Monday through Friday 9am – 6pm Pacific Standard Time (PST), excluding all national and federal holidays.
All jobs with standard turnaround times submitted and approved before 9am PST on any given working business day will begin production (day 1 of turnaround time) that day. If the order is submitted and approved after 9am PST on any business day, the job will begin production (day 1 of turnaround time) the following business day. If the job is submitted and approved on a weekend, the job will begin production on the next business day.
The estimated production turnaround on this site is based on the typical number of hours or days that a print job requires to complete under normal circumstances, excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays. Imprimerieavantage.com is closed Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, so these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time.
In addition, while Production Turnaround includes printing, cutting, and binding, it does not include mailing or shipping transit times. If you are having the order shipped, you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you select.

We will not refund a job based on turnaround time. If you have a time-sensitive job, please be sure to notify customer service. Cancellation of a job based on turnaround time is permitted ONLY if the Office Manager agrees to these terms in writing as a condition when the customer places the order.
If we deem that submitted artwork is low-quality (i.e. low resolution) which will cause low-quality prints, we may put your job ON HOLD until you re-submit and re-approve new artwork. This time is NOT INCLUDED in the turnaround time. Furthermore, the customer is 100% responsible if the artwork they submit is low quality, and in turn, the products produced are low-quality.
For rush orders, orders and files must be submitted by 9:00 A.M PST (12 noon EST) for that day to count as the first day in the Turnaround Time. If you submit after 9:00 A.M. PST, the first day of the Turnaround Time will be the next business day.
OVERPRINT and UNDERPRINT POLICY
Due to our gang-run method of production that Imprimerieavantage.com uses (printing several print jobs together on the same print run, thus spreading the cost of printing amongst all jobs on the form to lower the cost for our customers), we cannot guarantee that every order will be the exact number of items ordered.
We can only guarantee that the quantity printed will be within plus or minus 10% of the quantity ordered. If the order given is short an amount that exceeds 10% of the quantity ordered, we will prorate that credit for the next reorder.
No refund on shipping charges will be allowed on any job once it has shipped.

Imprimerieavantage.com is not responsible for any delays in shipping and we will not upgrade the shipping method to accommodate a missed estimated ship date. Customers may feel free to upgrade the shipping method before we ship at their own expense.
