Change Orders

Any jobs that have been approved cannot be altered or changed due to the automated process that results from the approval process.

Artwork Requirements/Setup Fees

To avoid incurring a design/setup fee, Customer must provide “camera ready” artwork that conforms to our file setup guide. ContinentalBizMag.com is not liable for poor quality as a result of the customer providing low-resolution images, however, customers will be notified prior to these orders going to press. If camera ready artwork is not provided, a setup fee will be charged for design services to prepare the artwork for printing. Customer will be notified of these charges before they are incurred.

Bleed and Caution Margin Requirements

Customer must include 1/4” bleed on each side for designs that have content extending past the trim line. Customer must exclude important content from the safety area, defined by the inner 1/8” margin to the trim lines. ContinentalBizMag.com allows for a 1/8” tolerance for error, therefore adherence to bleed and caution margins are important to image fidelity.

Turn Around Times

Turnaround times begin ONLY when the following criteria have been met:

1. Your order has been entered, processed and transaction approved.

2. You have uploaded your artwork for your job according to our specifications.

3. You have viewed and approved your proof (if applicable), thus sending your job to press.

4. After approval, Quality Control personnel may stop your job as having SUSPECT ART if they believe the artwork has defects (i.e. low resolution) that will cause it to print unsatisfactorily. In this event, you will receive an email message notifying you of this, and your job will be put on hold until you re-submit and re-approve new art or send the job to press as-is. While a job is on hold in this manner, the production clock is ON HOLD. ContinentalBizMag.com is not responsible for expediting your order if time is lost as a result of the customer’s failure to meet production design requirements.

5. All turn around times are based on business days Monday through Friday and exclude all federal and religious holidays. All jobs submitted into production after Noon EST will begin production the following business day.

ContinentalBizMag.com strives to ship every job on time; however, ship dates should be considered estimates. Production delays, weather conditions and mechanical malfunctions, etc. can sometimes cause jobs to ship late.

Color Space Conversion

ContinentalBizMag.com is not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes. For best results, always using CMYK color spaces when creating your artwork.

Gang Run Printing

On smaller quantities, a gang run method of producing print jobs is often which lowers costs by printing several print jobs together on the same print run, thus spreading the cost of the printing amongst all jobs on the form. ALL gang run printing is subject to a 10% color variance. If a job is color critical, Pantone PMS colors should be requested to ensure color accuracy. Additional fees may apply.
