Certain services made available via www.botaksign.com are delivered by third-party sites and organizations. By using any product, service or functionality originating from the www.botaksign.com domain, you hereby acknowledge and consent that Botak Sign Pte Ltd may share such information and data with any third-party with whom Botak Sign Pte Ltd has a contractual relationship to provide the requested product, service or functionality on behalf of www.botaksign.com users and customers.

PAYMENT

All prices and amounts shown on this Site are in Singapore Dollars (SGD), unless otherwise noted. If a User submits a request on the Site to purchase printing products, mailing services, design services or other services, the User agrees that all charges, taxes and shipping/handling fees will automatically be charged to the credit card or paid by User with an approved payment method. 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.

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 Botak Sign’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 POLICY

All sales are final. Since we customize each order according to your file and exact specifications, no refunds are given once Botak Sign Pte Ltd starts working on your order, which means Botak Sign Pte Ltd has received your necessary materials (i.e., digital files and payment) and has begun work on your job (i.e., your job is in production).

In some cases, a partial or full refund may be extended to the customer if no work has been completed by Botak Sign Pte Ltd due to artwork errors or other errors with the order. Under those circumstances, cancellation of the entire order would be recommended to reduce additional charges incurred by both parties, subsequently, you may place a new order after. If a partial refund is insisted, such refunds would be adjusted to cover any fees charged for proofs or other services associated with that order as well as merchant bank fees on credit card transactions. Refunds resulting from but not limited to, quantity, paper stock and shipping downgrades or cancellations prior to being in production shall be subject to a minimum fee of $15.00, up to 3.5% of the total amount. (add in the why refund)

Botak Sign Pte Ltd constantly maintains materials inventory and staff, and schedules time on all equipment for orders that have been placed to ensure our ability to produce them at any certain time. Orders that are not yet in production within 5 days of order already incur additional equipment, labour and inventory costs for Botak Sign Pte Ltd. Orders not approved for print by customer within 90 days of the order being placed will be non-refundable and will incur a fee of 12.5% of the original invoice total for each 30 day period thereafter until 100% of the original invoice total has been accrued in fees.

Each order made from Botak Sign Pte Ltd is a contract between you, as the customer making the order, and Botak Sign Pte Ltd. The fact that you have made an order on behalf of a third party does not absolve you of liability to Botak Sign Pte Ltd. As such, any decision by the third party not to accept the particular items printed or to cancel the order with you does not affect your liability to Botak Sign Pte Ltd.

NO LIABILITY FOR ERRORS

Botak Sign Pte Ltd is not liable for errors in a final product caused by any of the following reasons:
Misspelling, Graphics, Bleeds, Grammar, Damaged Fonts, Punctuation, Wrong cuts, Incorrect or Missing Folds, Die Lines, Crop Marks, Transparency, Overprint, Cracks on Folds, Finished Product Size. Botak Sign does not make any changes to customer files.

If we verify that we have made an error, we will re-run the order. We must be notified within 24 hours from delivery of any defects. In order to receive the replacement, customers must return 100% of the defective order at their expense within 5 days of their receipt. We will re-run the order with the original turnaround and send them out via the same paid shipping method. Shipping is non-refundable.

PROOFS

Botak Sign offers hard copy proofs that show reasonable likeness to the final printed pieces. Such proofs are recommended for color-critical art and must be requested by the customer 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 Botak Sign 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 customer’s responsibility to determine if they need a hard copy proof with their print order.

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. The customer is fully responsible for all that is contained in the final approved proof.

COLOR ACCURACY

Botak Sign Pte Ltd will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density. 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 Botak Sign Pte Ltd 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.

PRINTING TURNAROUND TIME

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. Printing turnaround time begins when we receive approval for your proof and full payment has been made. For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided or have submitted files that are not print-ready, printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s), not from when the order was first submitted.

For our Next Day Turnaround option, orders and files must be submitted by 5:00 PM and proofs must be approved by 6:00 PM to have the item shipped out of our facility on the next business day. In other words, if you approve a proof on your Next Day Turnaround order by 12:00 noon on Tuesday, it will be sent out of our facility for shipping by end of business Wednesday. Otherwise, your Next Day Turnaround order placed on Tuesday would ship on Thursday. This applies to Next Day Turnaround orders only and the cut-off time is 6PM, orders placed after 6PM will proceed on the next working day. 3 Hours Delivery only applies to RUSH items.

Please note that Botak Sign Pte Ltd is closed Saturdays, Sundays, and Holidays. As a result, these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time. In addition, while Production Turnaround includes printing, cutting, and binding, it does not include design, mailing, or shipping transit times, and you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you selected. The estimated production turnaround advertised on this 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.

Printing turnaround time for jobs with approved proofs and payment is guaranteed. The remedy for failing to meet a deadline is limited to a pro-rated refund of any rush charges or a courtesy rush on your next order. Cancellation of an order based on printing turnaround time is only allowed if the customer indicates in writing (e.g., note posted to order) when placing the original order that a job in the order is time-sensitive and must be shipped by target date based on printing turnaround option selected. Botak Sign will not be responsible for shipping-related costs on orders that do not go out by the due date.

DELIVERY

Unless you have chosen Self Collection for digital orders, you need to select one of the delivery options presented to you on the Site. When choosing a delivery option, please remember that the estimated delivery 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.

Delivery transit times vary, and Botak Sign Pte Ltd assumes no responsibility for delays caused by delivering 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. Botak Sign Pte Ltd’s responsibility is limited to preparing your printing order and delivering it to Lalamove for delivery.
