Terms & Conditions

Quark Files Notice

All customers designing in Quark, even if the artwork is saved as one of our recommended file types, are REQUIRED to purchase a high resolution proof. This is due to the complications while prepress imposes these files at the first stage of production. Please note that a digital proof may not catch text or artwork movement during this process. If a high resolution proof is not purchased, TakeoutSpecial.com will not be held responsible for any issues that may arise. This includes, but is not limited to, text movement, missing images or text, shrinkage etc. Contact customer service for hard copy proof pricing and payment.

  11. Prepress Proofs

    When requested by the customer, TakeoutSpecial.com will submit color proofs for the customer's review and approval. A high-resolution color proof is available for an additional $60 on all printed material excluding gang-run items. A minimum shipping charge of $25 is required to send a proof via express air shipping.

    • Proofs are waived by the client
    • The work is printed per the client's written OK
    • Requests for changes are communicated verbally
    • All requests for changes of any kind must be made in writing to avoid mistakes
  12. Color Proofing

    Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a "pleasing color" variation between color proofs and the completed job [as determined by generally accepted trade technical methods] is to be expected. When such a variation occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance.

  13. Overruns/Underruns

    TakeoutSpecial.com will normally deliver the exact quantity of goods ordered plus a small additional amount or overs. There is no extra charge for any overs or credits for unders (shortage less than 10%). The generally accepted trade practice is plus or minus 10%. If you must have a guaranteed numbers of pieces (such as for a mailing) we strongly suggest you order a sufficient amount of pieces to allow for the +/- 10% and the waste that occurs during the inkjet/laser mailing process. For example, if you have a 5,000 piece mailing you should order 5,500 pieces.

    Because of the nature of offset printing, on rare occasions the following may occur: variation in color, offset (smudges), cutting variations, marking, picking, etc. Because of cutting it is possible that all printed materials may be trimmed by 1/16th of an inch undersized on all sides (please address all art appropriately). Customer acknowledges that they are receiving printing at a substantial price discount and expedited delivery times and thus said printing will not be held to the same standard as traditional offset lithography nor generally accepted printing standards. While every effort will be made to satisfy our customer's needs, requests for reprints or credits based on quality issues will not be recognized.

  19. Turnaround Times

    Turnaround times are estimates and are not guaranteed. Based on the product you are ordering, you may choose from our standard turnaround, expedited turnaround or rush turnaround. Some products are available as 24 hour (next business day) turnaround at no additional charge if received by 12pm EST. While we make every attempt to ship those items on the next business day, all turn times are estimated and not guaranteed. Orders placed after those times will be considered as being ordered the following business day. All estimates are based on "business days" and do not include weekends or holidays. Turnaround times do not include the time required to ship your product. If for some reason we are unable to meet your expedited or rush turnaround deadline, we will credit you for the additional monies you spent for faster service (if any) but you will still be charged for the entire order-less the expedited or rush fee (if any). Under no circumstances shall you be entitled to a refund, credit or any other consideration. Turn times begin at the time you submit a ready to print file. Files that are not submitted properly will not begin production until they are corrected and resubmitted by you to us.

    Inkjet and laser prints are known to look substantially different than offset printing. We offer quick turnaround and low prices by printing to a "pleasing color" standard, using standard ink densities. There is no guarantee that your finished piece will match your printed sample. This is due to the varying results from different output devices including inkjet printers, continuous tone proofing devices,and film-based proofs.
