Late Design Changes:
Whereby the Client or their Agent requests further modifications or changes after the completed work has been sent off for printing the Client or their Agent agrees to pay additional costs that may arise.
Colour variations between proofs and the finished product is quite common. Where practical only CMYK colour breakdowns are used in the design process of full colour brochures etc. Colours also change when printed on different paper stocks due to the absorption of the inks. If exact colour reproduction is deemed crucial, a highly accurate colour proof will be obtained for an extra charge. This may add a day or two to production time. Pantone colours they specify may alter slightly when converted to CMYK due to limitations of the four colour process. Please note that PDF proofs emailed to the Client are an indication only and may differ slightly from the finished printed article.

Artwork production time is generally between 24 - 48 hours for small or medium size jobs. However this may vary according to the current workload.
