  2. The Seller shall not be responsible for checking the accuracy of supplied input from an electronic file unless otherwise agreed in writing. This includes any copy, images, alignment and any other components that make up the artwork. Please see our artwork guide for the correct method to set up artwork.
  3. Without prejudice to clause 5.2(b), if an electronic file is not suitable for outputting on equipment normally adequate for such purposes without adjustment or other corrective action the Seller may make a charge for any resulting additional cost incurred or may reject the file without prejudice to his rights to payment for work done/material purchased.

5.2 Other Materials

  1. The Seller may reject any materials supplied or specified by the Buyer which appear to him to be unsuitable for the purpose intended. Additional cost incurred if materials are found to be unsuitable during production may be charged except that if the whole or any part of such additional cost could have been avoided but for unreasonable delay by the Seller in ascertaining the unsuitability of the materials then that amount shall not be charged to the Buyer.
  2. Without prejudice to clause 5.3, where materials are so supplied or specified, and the Seller so advises the Buyer, and the Buyer instructs the Seller in writing to proceed anyway, the Seller will use reasonable endeavours to secure the best results, but shall have no liability for the quality of the end-product(s).
  3. Quantities of materials supplied shall be adequate to cover normal spoilage. Any costs incurred as a result of shortages, including re-starting jobs, duplicating masters etc will be charged in addition to the estimated price.

  2. On completion of the Work, the Seller will store the Buyer’s materials and Work for a maximum of one month, after which time they will be destroyed without further notice.

6. Materials and equipment supplied by the Seller

  1. Metal, film and other materials owned by the Seller and used in the production of intermediates, type, plates, film-setting, negatives, positives, electronic files and other production processes, together with items thereby produced, shall remain the Seller’s exclusive property.

  3. The Seller shall not be obliged to download any digital data from his equipment or supply the same to the Buyer on disc, tape or by any communication link.

7. Retention of Title

  1. The Work remains the Seller’s property until the Buyer has paid for it and discharged all other debts owing to the Seller.
  2. If the Buyer becomes subject to Insolvency and the Work has not been paid for in full the Seller may take the goods back and, if necessary, enter the Buyer’s premises to do so, or to inspect and/or label the goods so as to identify them clearly.
  3. If the Buyer shall sell the goods before they have been paid for in full he shall hold the proceeds of sale on trust for the Seller in a separate account until any sum owing to the Seller has been discharged from such proceeds.
  4. Where the Buyer is in breach of these Terms or performs any act of Bankruptcy or Insolvency the Seller reserves the right to approach the Buyer’s customer and to offer the Work directly to them, notwithstanding the fact that this will involve advising the Buyer’s customer that the Buyer is in breach or in default.

8. Proofs and variations

  1. The Seller shall incur no liability for any errors not corrected by the Buyer where the Buyer has been provided with proofs. The Buyer’s alterations and additional proofs necessitated thereby shall be charged extra. When style, type or layout is left to the Seller’s judgement, changes therefrom made by the Buyer shall be charged extra.
  2. Where the Buyer specifically waives any requirement to examine proofs the Seller is indemnified by the Buyer against any and all errors in the finished Work.
  3. Colour proofs: Due to differences in equipment, material, inks and other conditions between colour proofing and production runs, a reasonable variation in colour between colour proofs and the completed job will be deemed acceptable unless otherwise agreed in writing.
  4. Variations in quantity Every endeavour will be made to deliver the correct quantity ordered, but estimates are conditional upon margins of 5 per cent for work being allowed for overs or unders the same to be charged or deducted, unless otherwise agreed in writing.
  5. Product Quality Each product has its own specific usage, print quality and viewing distance. For example PVC is sold with a viewing distance of over 1 metre and Mesh PVC has a viewing distance of over 3 metres. You will need to contact a member of the sales team for more specific information on each product.
  6. Product Sizes Due to the production methods involved with large format printing (including but not limited to heat curing of ink, natural stretch in materials and hand finishing) we work within a tolerance of 3% of the finished size of our products. We will not accept any liability for any products which fall within this tolerance where the Buyer is unable to use the product because it is unavoidable with the production methods used by the Seller.

9. Claims and Liability

9.1 Claims

  1. Advice of damage, delay or loss of goods in transit or of non-delivery must be given in writing to the Seller and the carrier within 1 working day of delivery (or, in the case of non-delivery, within 1 working day of notification of despatch of the goods) and any claim in respect thereof must be made in writing to the Seller and the carrier within 1 working day of delivery (or, in the case of non-delivery, within 1 working day of notification of despatch). All other claims must be made in writing to the Seller within 1 working day of delivery. The Seller shall not be liable in respect of any claim unless the aforementioned requirements have been complied with except in any particular case where the Buyer proves that (i) it was not possible to comply with the requirements and (ii) the claim was made as soon as reasonably possible.
  2. If the Work is defective so that the Buyer may in law reject it, said rejection must take place within 1 working day of delivery of the goods, failing which the Buyer will be deemed to have accepted the Work.
  3. The Seller will not be responsible for the cost of reprints or carriage incurred for goods visibly damaged in transit (broken packaging etc), where the Buyer or third party recipient has not signed for the goods as damaged at the time of delivery.
  4. In the event of all or any claims or rejections the Seller reserves the right to inspect the Work within 3 working days of the claim or rejection being notified.
  5. All claims will be void if the product has been used (i.e. exhibition materials have been used at an event, signage has been drilled into a wall, outdoor graphics left outside).

9.2 Liability

  1. Insofar as is permitted by law where Work is defective for any reason, including negligence, the Seller’s liability (if any) shall be limited to rectifying such defect, or crediting its value against any invoice raised in respect of the Work.
  2. Where the Seller performs its obligations to rectify defective Work under this condition the Seller shall not be liable for indirect loss, consequential loss or third party claims occasioned by defective Work and the Buyer shall not be entitled to any further claim in respect of the Work nor shall the Buyer be entitled to repudiate the contract, refuse to pay for the work or cancel further deliveries.
  3. Defective Work must be returned to the Seller before replacement or credits can be issued. If the subject Work is not available to the Seller the Seller will hold that the Buyer has accepted the Work and no credits or replacement Work will be provided.
  4. The Seller shall not be liable for indirect loss, consequential loss or third party claims occasioned by delay in completing the work or for any loss to the Buyer arising from delay in transit, whether as a result of the Seller’s negligence or otherwise.
  5. Where the Seller offers to replace defective Work the Buyer must accept such an offer unless he can show clear cause for refusing so to do. If the Buyer opts to have the work re-done by any third party without reference to the Seller the Buyer automatically revokes his right to any remedy from the Seller, including but not exclusively the right to a credit in respect of Work done by the Seller.
  6. Where the Work will be forwarded by or on behalf of the Buyer to a third party for further processing the Buyer will be deemed to have inspected and approved the Work prior to forwarding and the Seller accepts no liability for claims arising subsequent to the third party’s processing.
  7. The Seller reserves the right to reject any work forwarded to him after initial processing by a third party as soon as is reasonably practicable without processing the work any further. Should the Buyer require the Seller notwithstanding to continue, then the Seller is only obliged to do so after confirmation from the Buyer in writing.
  8. Nothing in these conditions shall exclude the Seller’s liability for death or personal injury as a result of its negligence.

10. Insolvency

Without prejudice to other remedies, if the Buyer becomes insolvent, the Seller shall have the right not to proceed further with the contract or any other work for the Buyer and be entitled to charge for work already carried out (whether completed or not) and materials purchased for the Buyer, such charge to be an immediate debt due to him. Any unpaid invoices shall become immediately due for payment.

11. General Lien

Without prejudice to other remedies, in respect of all unpaid debts due from the Buyer the Seller shall have a general lien on all goods and property of or provided by the Buyer in his possession (whether worked on or not) and shall be entitled on the expiration of 14 days’ notice to dispose of such goods or property as agent for the Buyer in such manner and at such price as he thinks fit and to apply the proceeds towards such debts, and shall when accounting to the Buyer for any balance remaining be discharged from all liability in respect of such goods or property.

12. Illegal matter

  1. The Seller shall not be required to print any matter which in his opinion is or may be of an illegal or libellous nature or an infringement of the proprietary or other rights of any third party.
  2. The Seller shall be indemnified by the Buyer in respect of any claims, costs and expenses arising out of the printing by the Seller for the Buyer of any illegal or unlawful matter including matter which is libellous or infringes copyright, patent, design or any other proprietary or personal rights. The indemnity shall include (without limitation) any amounts paid on a lawyer’s advice in settlement of any claim that any matter is libellous or such an infringement.

13. Force majeure

The Seller shall be under no liability if he shall be unable to carry out any provision of the contract for any reason beyond his reasonable control including (without limiting the foregoing): Act of God; legislation; war; fire; flood; drought; inadequacy or unsuitability of any instructions, electronic file or other data or materials supplied by the Buyer; failure of power supply; lock-out, strike or other action taken by employees in contemplation or furtherance of a dispute; or owing to any inability to procure materials required for the performance of the contract. During the continuance of such a contingency the Buyer may by written notice to the Seller elect to terminate the contract and pay for work done and materials used, but subject thereto shall otherwise accept delivery when available.

14. Data Protection

The Buyer is hereby notified that the Seller may transfer personal information about the Buyer to a Credit Agency pursuant to clauses above.

15. Law

These conditions and all other express and implied terms of the contract shall be governed and construed in accordance with the laws of England and the parties agree to submit to the jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

16. Notices

All specifications and notices relied on by either party and all variations to this agreement must be in writing and include a duly authorised signature.

17. Consumers

Nothing in these Terms shall affect the rights of Consumers.

18. Severability

All clauses and sub-clauses of this Agreement are severable and if any clause or identifiable part thereof is held to be unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction then such enforceability shall not affect the enforceability of the remaining provisions or identifiable parts thereof in these Terms and Conditions.

SILICON EDGE GRAPHIC FRAMES

  • Lead times: 2-3 working days to cut silicone edge graphic frames, and 3-5 working days to print and sew the graphics. This work is completed concurrently, so the maximum combined lead time, depending on order value, should be 5 working days for the entire job (ie graphic and frame). Faster lead times may be possible subject to availability and there may be additional charges incurred.
  • Proforma customers: All frames are cut on receipt of payment, within our standard lead times. Delays with payment can therefore cause a delay in the completion of the job.
  • Credit Account customers: We will cut the frame as soon as we receive the PO.
  • Cancellations: Each frame is custom cut and the offcuts are not used for other jobs. If the customer cancels after issuing the PO / after it is paid they will have to pay the full value of the frame.
  • Size Adjustments: If the size of the frame goes down after PO / payment the customer will still have to pay the full price plus any additional charges for carriage / cutting. If the frame increases we can supply the extra pieces with a connector. There will be additional charges for the extra material, connectors, feet and braces required, as well as additional carriage charges.
  • Additional Cutting: If the customer decides after purchasing that they need the frame to be cut down for transportation this will incur additional charges for connectors, feet and braces.

Any extra charges are all on quotation
