We require each order to be fully paid, including shipping and handling fees, if applicable, before we complete an order. We will not start working on a print job until we receive the full payment, unless otherwise arranged. Once a print job has been approved by customer and “sent to press” on the Site, no changes are allowed to the artwork files, job characteristics, or printing turnaround time. After a print job has been sent to Scott Lithographing’s prepress department, the customer is responsible for paying the entire amount of that print job along with applicable taxes and shipping/handling fees, unless otherwise noted.
Refund & Cancellation Policy
All sales are final since we customize each order according to your exact specifications. Any cancellation or compensation given to the customer will be refunded in a timely manner.

Printing turnaround time begins once your order has been placed and your print-ready files have been uploaded to your account, attached to your printing job, and approved for printing.

If there is a problem with your files or missing components, we will contact you immediately, but printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s) approved for your print job, not from when the order is first submitted. Once you approve a final proof, printing will proceed in accordance with the production schedule agreed upon. If your job or proof is approved by 10:00 A.M. EST, printing turnaround time begins that business day. For example, a job for three-day printing turnaround that you approved by 10:00 A.M. EST on Tuesday will be shipped out to you by end of business Friday. Please note that we are closed Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. As a result, these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time. In addition, printing turnaround time does not include shipping transit time, and you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you selected.

Proofing, Color Matching & Print Quality
We will have an online proof of your job available for your review shortly after receiving it in our production department, but actual time will vary depending on our current workload. Scott Lithographing does not guarantee color matching or ink density on JPEG or PDF screen proofs. Screen proofs will predict text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color or density. Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a reasonable variation in color between color proofs and the completed job is to be expected. When variation of this kind occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance. Scott Lithographing is not liable for errors in a final product caused by any of the following reasons: Misspelling, Graphics, Bleeds, Grammar, Damage Fonts, Punctuation, Wrong cuts, Incorrect or Missing Folds, Die Lines, Crop Marks, Transparency, Overprint, Finished Product Size.
