2.1 The Products the Company agrees to provide are listed on the Company website.
2.2 The Company takes all reasonable care in representing and describing its Products as accurately as possible via its website in colour, appearance, texture and finish. However, due to the nature of purchasing Products via the internet, the Customer accepts that there may be variances between what is seen on an electronic device screen and the actual Products received.

3.2 Print the information or artwork provided by the Customer onto the specified Products provided by the Company.
3.3 The Company will take all reasonable care to ensure the information provided by the customer is as intended and suitable for production on Products and will endeavour to contact the Customer where an error or problem is suspected.

However, by entering the Contract the Customer is confirming that all information provided to the Company is correct and the Customer accepts any and all losses as a result of any mistakes made.
3.4 The Company takes all reasonable care in representing and describing its Products and Services via its website. However, due to the nature of purchasing Products and Services via the internet, the Customer accepts that there may be variances between what is seen on an electronic device screen and the actual Products received.
3.5 The Company will endeavour to produce Customised Services as specified but due to the base colour and nature of material type, it is not possible to guarantee a precise colour match or specific pantone colour match. The Customer accepts this and absolves the Company of any liability for any loss in this regard.
3.5.1 In the case of wristbands, the Company explicitly advises the Customer that due to the printing technique utilised by the Company the print colour selected and/or uploaded/provided by the Customer should be darker than the base background colour of the Products selected by the Customer. For example, light blue print will not be visible on a dark blue base coloured wristband.
3.5.2 Due to the standard printing process, the print area on wristbands is limited to an area which does not enable printing to the edge of the wristband. The base colour of the wristband will border whatever print design is specified. For example, if your design puts writing in a box of a different colour to the wristband specified, this box will not cover the whole width of the wristband.
3.5.3 For all other Services, the Company will print as specified by the Customer. The constraints noted in 3.5.1 and 3.5.2 above are not applicable to other Services which can print any colour over the full area.
