Customers agree that they will not use any robot, spider, or other automatic device, or manual process to monitor or copy our web pages or the content contained therein without prior written permission of an authorized officer.

Any jobs that have been approved cannot be altered or changed due to the automated process that results from the approval process.
Artwork Requirements/Setup Fees
To avoid incurring a design/setup fee, Customer must provide “camera ready” artwork that conforms to our file setup guide. ShortRunCards.com is not liable for poor quality as a result of the customer providing low-resolution images, however, customers will be notified prior to these orders going to press. If camera ready artwork is not provided, a $50 - $100 setup fee will be charged for design services to prepare the artwork for printing. Customer will be notified of these charges before they are incurred.
Bleed and Caution Margin Requirements
Customer must include 1/8” bleed for designs that have content extending past the trim line. Customer must exclude important content from the safety area, defined by the inner 1/8” margin to the trim lines. ShortRunCards.com allows for a 1/16” tolerance for error, therefore adherence to bleed and caution margins are important to image fidelity.
Turn Around Times
Turnaround times begin ONLY when the following criteria have been met:
1. Your order has been entered, processed and transaction approved.
2. You have uploaded your artwork for your job according to our specifications.
3. If you have requested a proof, it has been viewed and approved, thus sending your job to press.
4. After approval, Quality Control personnel may stop your job as having SUSPECT ART if they believe the artwork has defects (i.e. low resolution) that will cause it to print unsatisfactorily. In this event, you will receive an email message notifying you of this, and your job will be put on hold until you re-submit and re-approve new art or send the job to press as-is. While a job is on hold in this manner, the production clock is ON HOLD. ShortRunCards.com is not responsible for expediting your order if time is lost as a result of the customer’s failure to meet production design requirements.
5. All turn around times are based on business days Monday through Friday and exclude all federal and religious holidays. All jobs submitted into production after Noon EST will begin production the following business day.
EXAMPLE: if a 3 - 5 day turnaround job is submitted, approved, and sent to press on a Monday after noon EST, Day 1 of turnaround time is the following business day and the job would ship out between Thursday (Day 3) and Monday (Day Five).
ShortRunCards.com strives to ship every job on time; however, ship dates should be considered estimates. Production delays, weather conditions and mechanical malfunctions, etc. can sometimes cause jobs to ship late. In the rare event ShortRunCards.com ships a late job, the shipping method will often be upgraded to accommodate a missed estimated ship date but this is not mandatory.
Official ShortRunCards.com non-production dates:
New Years Day – Jan 1
Memorial Day – Last Monday in May
Independence Day – July 4th
Labor Day – First Monday in September
Thanksgiving – 4th Thursday & Friday in November
Christmas Day – December 25th
Color Space Conversion
ShortRunCards.com is not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes. For best results, always using CMYK color spaces when creating your artwork.
A hard copy color proof guarantees a reasonable likeness to the final printed pieces but will visually show color variation between the hard copy color proof and the final printed piece if a different printing process is selected (digital vs. offset). If variation occurs due to these circumstances, the resulting printed job is considered an acceptable print performance. If you submit a job and do not request a hard copy color proof, your job(s) will be printed as is. ShortRunCards.com will not be liable for color variation from the digital proof. ShortRunCards.com will make every effort to match the colors of your submitted artwork, whether your job is color critical or not. It is the customer’s responsibility to determine if the job is color critical and request a hard copy proof if necessary.
Gang Run Printing
A gang run is the method of producing print jobs for clients that lowers costs by printing several print jobs together on the same print run, thus spreading the cost of the printing amongst all jobs on the form. ALL gang run printing is subject to a 10% color variance. If a job is color critical, Pantone PMS colors should be requested to ensure color accuracy. Additional fees may apply. Pantone color matching is only available on PVC plastic cards printed offset.
Customers must notify ShortRunCards.com within 5 business days of order delivery to report any defects discovered in the ordered product. 100% of the product should be returned to ShortRunCards.com at the customer's expense within 10 business days from the date of delivery. Should the claim be approved by ShortRunCards.com, a reprint at no cost will be shipped to the customer using the original shipping method.
Refunds and Cancellations
All sales are final. No refunds are available on orders unless art files have NOT been uploaded to the site, submitted to customer service or sent to press. On jobs that meet the above criteria, a $15 processing fee will be charged for each job cancellation. On jobs that meet the above criteria, you must contact ShortRunCards.com within 30 days to request your refund. Any refund requests approved after 30 days will be issued as a credit toward the next order. If an order is cancelled any charges already incurred such as design services or a hard copy proof are non-refundable.
Overuns and Underruns
Over-runs or under-runs will not exceed 5%.
