7.4 Complaints are accepted on working days until 18:00. Complaints that are reported after this time will not be accepted until the next business day.

7.5 Given the technological differences between the printing technology and the way colors are displayed in most monitors (in which the CMYK color space is used), comparing the color of the printout with the color presented on the monitor is technologically incorrect. Therefore, the lack of conformity of the color of the printout with the image on the monitor cannot be a reason to report complaints.

7.6 The Seller shall make every effort to display as far as possible the colors that are present in the graphic files supplied by the Buyer. Due to the fact that a large number of printing machines are used in the printing process, among which there are differences in the display of some colors, slight differences in color may occur when printing the same project on different machines. This situation can occur when reprinting. These differences cannot be the reason for complaints about products supplied by the Seller.

7.7 An incorrect composition is considered to be one that causes the paper to wrinkle, crease, etc., which prevents the text or illustration from being read correctly. For weights above 150g paper cracks appear at the break, especially visible in areas covered with a thick layer of ink. In order to reduce this undesirable phenomenon, the Seller does not use the creasing / grooving method before the folding / composing process. Depending on the material and graphics, creasing / grooving does not guarantee full protection against cracking. This process is caused by the ultimate strength of the material and this defect is not considered a fault of the Seller.

7.8 With regard to the parameters of the production machines and the printing itself, the following deviations are permissible:

a) when cutting the sheet into individual parts: tolerance up to 2mm;
b) during folding / composing and creasing / grooving (deviation of the break from the nominal line of its location) - tolerance up to 1mm;
c) when registration of colors gradually printed - tolerances up to 0.2mm;
d) in case of quantity differences between the ordered and delivered goods to the Buyer - not exceeding +/- 5% of the ordered quantity;

7.9 An order duly and perfectly executed is considered to be one in which the deviation from the standards and norms concerning the printing process is not more than 1% of the quantity of the delivered product. The Buyer accepts the above and acknowledges that in the event of reporting a complaint for the above reasons, the Seller will not accept this complaint.

7.10 Complaints related to the quality of courier shipments will be examined on the basis of a record of damage, which was taken together with the courier when receiving the shipment of Goods. Missing registration of damages may be the basis for rejection of claims by the Seller.

7.11 The maximum amount of compensation for damage caused as a result of a defect in the Goods may not exceed 100% of the value of the ordered type of Goods, not 100% of the Purchase Price.

7.12 The materials used in the swatches of paper are sample and may differ from those used to print orders placed through the Online Store. The difference is the result of the use of materials from different manufacturers and is within the weight tolerance of papers generally accepted in printing.

7.13 The seller is responsible only for his own actions and omissions.
