If a User submits an order on the Site to purchase printing products, mailing services, design services or other services, the User agrees that all charges, taxes and shipping/handling and postage fees will automatically be charged to the credit card or paid by User with an approved payment method.
Production of all items ordered is subject to the terms outlined below in the "Printing Turnaround Time" section and will not begin until an order is fully paid, including shipping and handling fees, if applicable except where 48HP has explicitly agreed to special delayed payment terms (e.g. Net 30) with the User prior to placing an order. Users who have delayed payment agreements with 48HP are required to provide payment in accordance with the terms of their applicable payment agreement(s).
Except as provided for in the Refund & Cancellation Policy below, any payment received from the User shall be deemed fully paid to 48HP and non-refundable at a rate of twenty percent (20%) for each calendar month that passed after the date of the User's initial submission even where the print job never reaches the "In Production" or shipment phase due to no fault of 48HP (e.g. User fails to respond to approval of proof/print job, User fails to provide information to complete the print job or shipment, User otherwise fails to cancel his or her order prior to reaching the "In Production" phase, etc.).
Refund & Cancellation Policy
At 48HourPrint.com, we strive to provide our Users with the best possible printing experience. If you are not 100% satisfied with your order for any reason, please contact our customer service department.
All policies are subject to change without prior notification. Defective product refunds and reprints shall not exceed the amount paid by the User or $1,000.00 (whichever is less). Determination of defect is at the sole discretion of 48HP. In most cases, Users will be requested to share digital photos documenting the product defect and/or ship the defective products back to customer service. Free expedited reprint on any orders lost in transit is limited to orders less than or equal to $250. Turnaround and shipping for reprint orders will vary depending upon available production capacity and manager's discretion.
Direct mail services including printing, mailing services, list services and design services are not subject to the foregoing policies. Refunds or reprint on direct mail orders will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis and any refund/reprint shall be determined by 48HP in its sole discretion.
Once the print file(s) associated with an order have been approved by the User as described below in the "Printing Turnaround Time" section, the order will be "In Production" and no changes or cancellations will be allowed to the print files, job characteristics, or printing turnaround time. After an order is In Production, the entire amount of the order along with applicable taxes and shipping/handling fees shall be deemed fully paid and non-refundable, except as provided for in the Refund & Cancellation Policy herein.

Defective Order Policy
Every item we sell is carefully inspected before it is shipped. If you receive a print job that you believe contains manufacturing errors and/or defects it may be eligible for reprint or refund. Please contact us within two (2) business days after your package arrives so we can assess the situation.
Determination of errors and/or defects is at the sole discretion of 48HP and eligible items may receive one of the following remedies:
- 100% Free reprint on any defective print orders
- 100% Free expedited reprint on any orders lost in transit
All claims MUST be made within two (2) days of receiving your order. Shipping charges will not be refunded.
Our Sales Tax Policy
48HourPrint.com charges sales tax on orders picked-up from or shipped to addresses in accordance with state and local regulations unless you are tax exempt. If you are tax exempt, you need to send or fax to us your tax exemption certificate. If, after the User has paid the invoice, it is determined that more tax is due, then the User must promptly remit the required taxes to the taxing authority or immediately reimburse the provider for any additional taxes paid.
If requested, an online proof will be available for your review after we have received your files for print. Actual time will vary depending on our current workload. Jobs with proof requests will not be sent to press without your approval unless the proof approval is explicitly waived. Should you not approve your proof, we will print it as is and are thereby not at all responsible for the final quality or accuracy of the product. It is the User's responsibility to log in to their account and check on their proof. We are not liable for delays in the order caused by User's non-approval of the proof. We reserve the right, at our discretion, to make minor changes to the proof and product as needed for the quality of printing.
An online proof is by no means an accurate color reproduction of your final printed piece but is the final opportunity for you to check the layout, bleeds, crops and final text. Electronic proofs do not show transparency and over print issues. Nor do they show color change from RGB or Pantone to CMYK.
The proof must be treated as independent from the original submitted file and thoroughly reviewed prior to approval. It should be checked against the original file for possible errors in layout, copy, spacing, punctuation or image placement. User is fully responsible for all that is contained in the final approved proof.
48HourPrint.com offers hard copy proofs which show reasonable likeness to the final printed pieces. Such proofs are recommended for color-critical art and must be requested by the User when the print order is made. Hard copy proofs are printed on a substrate different from the actual paper stock and while its main purpose is to show color, variations may occur depending on the finish selected (AQ, matte, UV) for the final print job. We do not offer hard copy proofs for art that would be printed on uncoated paper.
The request for a hard copy proof may involve an additional fee and would extend the amount of time needed to complete the job. For orders where a hard copy proof has been requested, the approval must be received by us on or before our published cut-off times. We will make every effort to match colors in production when a hard copy proof is requested. However, it is the User's responsibility to determine if they need a hard copy proof with their print order.
Color Accuracy48HourPrint.com will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible but cannot exactly match color and density (as viewed in a 5000K light booth). Because of inherent limitations with the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements, the accuracy of color reproduction is not guaranteed. By placing an order with 48HourPrint.com, you agree to this limitation. We will try our best to match the gradient density of each color, but we accept no responsibility for color variations between submitted files and the final printed piece. Under no circumstances will a reprint be honored for color variations that have occurred during the printing process. We are not liable for color matching or ink density on screen proofs that you approve. Screen proofs will predict design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color or density. Application of UV coating may affect or change the appearance of the printed colors. We are not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product.
No Liability for Errors48HP is not liable for errors in a final product caused by any of the following reasons:
Spelling, punctuation and grammatical errors
Low resolution or low-quality graphics and images
Artwork files that are not created following our specifications
Variances in color from the conversion of Pantone or RGB colors to CMYK
Errors in user-selected options such as size, quantity, paper and finish
Duplicate orders submitted by the User
Incorrect files uploaded
Incorrect file orientation
Cracking on folds
Incorrect or undeliverable shipping address
Damage to products after delivery to User
Our prepress department checks all submitted artwork files before printing, but you are still 100% responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and we encourage you to carefully proofread all files prior to submission. 48HP is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted artwork. By submitting the artwork to 48HP, you certify that you have the right to use the image(s) in your artwork files. DO NOT send any "one-of-kind" transparencies, prints or artwork. Although we take every precaution to safeguard your materials, we are NOT responsible for loss or damage of images or artwork.
48HourPrint.com may also provide artwork design tools which offer a limited number of elements, including icons, fonts, color schemes, and design effects. We reserve the right to use and offer all such elements to other parties in the future. Other 48HourPrint.com Users may use the same design tools to create images that may have similar or identical combinations of these elements. 48HP provides no warranty of any kind that artwork created using the design tool will not infringe, or be subject to a claim of infringing, on the trademark, copyright or other rights of another party. It is solely your responsibility to obtain the advice of an attorney regarding whether any image, mark, logo name or design is legally available for your use and does not infringe on another party's rights.
We may, based on our sole discretion, set limits to the maximum number of days that we shall retain designs or other uploaded files, as well as the maximum storage space that we would allocate to such files. 48HP is not responsible for the deletion or failure to store any file whether uploaded or designed on our website. We reserve the right to delete any file stored which has been inactive for an extended period, or for any other reason, without prior notice.
Stock Images Terms48HourPrint.com provides users access to professional stock images through an integration with Adobe. The licensing fee(s) for any stock image(s) you include in your artwork file will be added to your final total during checkout. By purchasing stock image(s) in this manner, you agree to adhere to all applicable Adobe agreements. Any issues created as a result of using such images are subject to Adobe agreements; we are not responsible for any issues, failures, or mishaps that arise as a result of using this service.
You cannot return or exchange any stock image(s) that you purchase and all sales are final.
Printing Turnaround Time
Printing turnaround time begins after we have received your print-ready files, approval for your proof and full payment for your order. If you have chosen to waive your proof approval, printing turnaround time begins after we have received your print-ready files and full payment for your order. For orders that do not have complete digital source files, or have files that are not print-ready, printing turnaround time will begin after we receive acceptable print-ready files regardless of when payment was made.
Orders must be paid, print-ready files received, and proofs approved by 5:00 P.M. PST (8:00 P.M. EST) for printing turnaround time to begin the next business day. For example, an order for two-day printing turnaround that you submitted at 3:00 P.M. PST (6:00 P.M. EST) and approved by 5:00 P.M. PST (8:00 P.M. EST) on Tuesday will be shipped out of our facility by end of business Thursday. If you approve a proof on your Next Day Turnaround order by 5:00 P.M. PST (8:00 P.M. EST) on Tuesday, it will be sent out of our facility by Wednesday end of business day.
Please note that there is no production or shipping on Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. As a result, these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time. In addition, while Printing turnaround time includes printing, cutting, and binding, it does not include design, mailing, or shipping transit times. You should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you selected; estimated printing turnaround time advertised on the site is based on the typical number of hours or days that a print job is completed under normal circumstances, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
Over Print and Under Print Policy
Due to the gang run method that 48HourPrint.com uses, we cannot guarantee that every order will deliver the exact number of items which was ordered. However, 48HP can guarantee that it will come within +/-10% of the number of items ordered. Although rare, in the event of an under run, we will either refund or give you Store Credit for the number of pieces we were "short", if over 10% of the order quantity.
Unless you choose Pick Up or Mailing Services, you need to select one of the shipping methods presented for the product on the site. All shipping may be done using FedEx, UPS or other freight carriers. 48HP reserves the right to use the most appropriate carrier for the required transit time and destination. When choosing a shipping method, please remember that the estimated shipping transit time is based on the number of business days in transit and does not include weekends, holidays or the day the package is picked up by the carrier. For instance, a product shipped Two Day service and picked up on a Thursday would be delivered by end of day Monday.
48HP's responsibility is limited to preparing your printing order and turning it over to the carrier for shipping. Shipping transit times vary and 48HP assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive a job on time. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc.
48HP is not liable for damages that occur during shipping.
Pick up orders will be kept for 30 days from the send date of the pick-up notification email. If the order has not been picked up from 48HP's facility within 30 days, it will be recycled.
48HP reserves the right to modify the shipping option selected by you and retain any related difference in charges between shipping options, where 48HP completes the job prior to the turnaround time selected by you and there will be no adverse material impact on the target arrival date (see Target Arrival section below).
Target arrival dates are estimates and are calculated by adding the printing turnaround time to the shipping transit time. Both printing and shipping times are based on business days only and do not include weekends or holidays.
For example, a product with a printing turnaround time of two business days and a shipping method of Two-Day service would have a target arrival date of four business days after your files have been sent to production.
The cut off time for accepting files is 9:00 A.M. PST (12:00 Noon EST). If we receive print-ready files, proof approval, full payment and have successfully validated your delivery address by that time, we will commit to printing and shipping your product within the selected timeframe.
If you have requested a Hardcopy Proof, you should factor in approximately six business days to receive and approve your proof. For Next Day Hardcopy Proof, factor in an additional two business days.
Please understand that target arrival dates are estimates, not guarantees. 48HP assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc.
48HP offers mailing services to users who upload their own mailing lists "Uploaded Lists" and to users who rent a mailing list from 48HP "Rented Lists". It is the User's responsibility to understand and comply with current mailing restrictions and all applicable federal, state and local laws, rules and regulations regarding direct mail marketing before placing the order with 48HP.
While in our possession, Uploaded Lists remain the exclusive property of the User and shall be used only with User's instructions. User is responsible for checking the accuracy of Uploaded Lists before submitting to 48HP and for ensuring that there is no confidential information or notes not meant for the recipient. Uploaded Lists will not be sold or offered for use to any other party, and 48HP will not utilize the list for any other purpose.
48HP contracts the services of third-party vendors for the procurement of Rented Lists. If you use a Rented List(s) on 48HourPrint.com, you acknowledge that you have no proprietary rights to the data in rented list(s), and that it is your responsibility to use it as per the vendor's terms by which it was rented.

This guarantee covers only the accuracy of the mailing address and not of any other information in the list such as names and other demographic data. If actual delivery to addresses in a Rented List is lower than the guaranteed amount, we'll refund $0.40 per address for each failed address that falls between the actual amount delivered and the guaranteed amount.
All mailing delivery dates are estimates, not guarantees. 48HP's responsibility is limited to preparing your mailing and completing delivery to the U.S. Postal Service ("USPS"). 48HP's responsibility ends when the job is delivered to the US Postal Service Business Mail Entry Unit. In no event shall 48HP be liable for USPS performance failures or delivery delays.
48HP’s sole obligation in rectifying printing and mailing errors is only to re-mail a correction or corrected job as soon as possible, and allowable damages shall be limited to the value of the printing work performed. In no case is 48HP liable for loss of business; incidental or consequential damages; or costs in excess of billing for services related to the specific job. 48HP is also not liable for returned mail pieces that are undeliverable for any reason. The User will defend and hold 48HP harmless in any suit or court action brought against by others for alleged damages, costs, expenses (including reasonable attorney's fees), liabilities or losses resulting from circumstances where, acting as the User's agent, uses copy, photographs, or illustrations that are believed by others to be degrading, libelous or harmful to their reputations, images, or standing in the community or which in 48HP sole judgment is an infringement on a trademark, or trade name, or service mark, or copyright belonging to others, or in a suit or court action brought against for actions of the User or User's employees which may occur as a result of any mailing service including mailing list rentals.
All complaints must be registered within two (2) days of receipt of a printing job. If we determine that your job contains manufacturing errors and/or defects, we will rerun your job at no charge.
