h. Print Material limitations
i. Print will commonly be darker than the proofs as the art is back lit by the screen of the computer it is displayed on. If there are RGB and CMYK elements in the supplied files the RGB elements are converted to CMYK in the proofs and on the press - color shift may occur.
ii. The proofs output from the Customer’s supplied artwork files represent what will go to print. The artwork files are considered to be in final print ready form with no need for modifications. If the PDF proof the client receives is not an exact reproduction of the intended final output, the customer must reject the proofs. The Supplier is not responsible for any errors and/or omissions once approved. PDF proofs are for confirmation of layout and text accuracy only and are not for the evaluation of color. Computer monitors do not provide color accuracy or true representation of color values in artwork files supplied. Color variation between the electronic proofs and the final product will occur and does not qualify as a manufacturing defect.
iii. Color warranty is ONLY available with signed, approved hard-copy color match proofs, supplied and delivered at the Customer’s expense. If a color match proof is ordered, up to 10% color variation is not considered a defect and is deemed acceptable within industry standards and norms.

The Supplier's liability under this Condition shall be to the exclusion of all other liability to the Customer whether contractual, tortious or otherwise for defects in the goods or for any loss or damage to or caused by the goods. All other conditions, warranties, stipulations or other statements whatsoever concerning the goods, whether express or implied, by statute, at common law or otherwise howsoever, are hereby excluded to the fullest extent allowed by law; in particular (but without limitation of the foregoing) the Supplier grants no warranties regarding the fitness for purpose, performance, use, nature or quality of the goods, whether express or implied, by statute, at common law or otherwise howsoever. The Supplier shall not be liable if the Customer or a third party carries out modifications or repairs of the Products.

iv. In case of disagreement between 9.c.ii and 9.c.iii, the Customer will be invited to hear playback of the test pressings at the Supplier’s listening room. In the event of a stalemate of opinions on the quality of the test pressings, the Supplier may at its sole discretion, render a final decision. The decision to proceed to order production is the Customer's discretion. THE DEPOSIT IS NON-REFUNDABLE.
10. RETURN POLICY
This is a custom manufacturing industry, so there are no returns or refunds. Verifiable defects, as defined by the RIAA, found in the test pressings will be corrected.
