3. How the contract is formed between you and us
3.1 Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product or Products. All orders are subject to acceptance by us, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by electronic notification at the end of the ordering process (the "Order Confirmation"). We are unable to issue an Order Confirmation until such time as the ordering process is complete. The contract between us ("Contract") will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation. Once the Contract has been formed, the terms of the Contract cannot be varied without our prior written consent.

3. Company's Obligations
3.1 The Company shall use reasonable endeavours to supply the Goods and to deliver the Deliverables to the Buyer, in accordance in all material respects with the Company's Proposal.
3.2 The Company shall use reasonable endeavours to meet any delivery dates specified in the Company's Proposal, but any such dates shall be estimates only and time shall not be of the essence for delivery of the Goods.
4. Buyer's Obligations
4.1 The Buyer shall:
(a) co-operate with the Company in all matters relating to the Goods; and
(b) provide to the Company, in a timely manner, a full and concise Purchase Order and/or other information as the Company may require to ensure that the order is accurate in all respects, plus, correct artwork.
(i) Artwork: The Buyer will provide 'print ready artwork' in accordance with the attached artwork specification supplied from the Company. Where the Buyer or their agent does not do this and delivery is required within 72 hours of the provision of artwork (including notification of FTP address details or equivalent from where the artwork is to be downloaded) then the Company reserves the right to charge the Buyer for Pre-Press time for each artwork piece and for each dimension in which it is required to convert the artwork into 'print ready artwork'. Our standard charge for Pre-Press time is £30 per half hour.
(ii) Dimensions: The Buyer will specify the height and width, visual size and finished size from outer edge to opposite outer edge of hemmed / pocketed / kedered extra material of printed pieces). The Company will use its best endeavours to achieve those dimensions but it is deemed that the Buyer will accept the dimensions achieved by the Company providing they are within 2% of those dimensions (width(s) and height(s)) specified by the buyer. This tolerance can be reduced for those printed pieces where the Buyer specifies they are to be installed in advised tension systems (such as Universal, Nova, Springflex and Traxx). In these instances the Buyer must always specify the tolerance, which should not be less than 15mm, and this tolerance is accepted in writing by the Company in its Order Confirmation document.
(iii) Colours: Best colours are achieved when the Buyer provides the Company with a coated pantone number to be achieved for designated areas of block colour. Where the Buyer or their agent does not provide such information then the Buyer is deemed to accept the colours on the print(s) produced by the Company's 'print from file process'.
(c) Sample or Test Prints: Where the Buyer requires a sample or test print prior to authorising production of their order the Company will provide such prints at a cost of £45 for up to a maximum of 5 square metres of print. (This cost includes delivery of the sample). Such additional charges can be refunded to the Buyer in whole or in part, at the sole discretion of the Company, when the Buyer places their order which were the subject of the buyers request for the sample or test prints.
(d) Company's Right to use Buyer's Artwork: Unless refused in writing by the buyer at the time of placing their order(s) with the Company then the Company will presume, and be so indemnified by the Buyer, that it has the Buyer's permission, and that of their client, to use any artwork provided to demonstrate the Company's services in its website, brochures and any other promotional products.
5. Delivery and Acceptance Prior to Installation
5.1 It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to inspect the goods, at the address specified by the buyer, prior to their installation / display. Inspection should cover – substrate used, colours, print quality, dimensions, perimeter or other finishing, the appearance of the Goods when they are backlit (if that is to be their use).
If that cannot be done at the Buyer's specified delivery address then arrangements can be made to carry out this inspection at the Company's premises prior to despatch of the Goods. Where the Buyer declines to carry out an inspection prior to installation it will be deemed that the Buyer has accepted the Goods as correct. If, after installation / display of the Goods, the goods are rejected for any reason whether or not such rejection has been caused by the Company's production / delivery process, then all costs to do with takedown / reinstallation / loss of media value / any other claims are the sole responsibility of the Buyer.
5.2 If for any reason the Buyer fails to accept delivery of any of the Goods when they are ready for delivery, or the Company is unable to or declines to deliver the Goods on time because the Buyer has breached any of its obligations the Company may store the Goods until delivery, whereupon the Buyer shall be liable for all related costs and expenses (including, without limitation, storage and insurance).
