Our production time begins ONLY after an order has been "received" and successfully completed our initial processing. Orders are considered "received" or "accepted" by 24 Hour Disc and are put into production ONLY when the following five conditions have been met:

(1) a WORK ORDER has been completely filled out by 24 Hour Disc staff that accurately describes your project and proper pricing of the product ordered has been verified. We reserve the right to correct prices stated in error by the website or personnel, etc. of 24 Hour Disc. (2) all files have been correctly submitted.

(4) 24 Hour Disc will review the content of the project if necessary to see if it conforms to standards as described in paragraphs 2 and 3 above. (5) payment has been made.

Turnaround times. We try to produce all projects in an expedient manner. In some cases we fail to meet our quoted or specified turnaround time on a project. We will not be responsible for failure to meet the quoted or specified turnaround time. If your project is of a time sensitive nature then we encourage you to choose another vendor for your project.

After the initial order is placed and your files have been successfully either uploaded, emailed, etc., a 24 Hour Disc representative will contact you about your project. 24 Hour Disc is NOT RESPONSIBLE for items that would prevent the file from being CORRECTLY printed such as missing files, resolution, color mode, missing fonts and images, proper bleed, etc. It is also your responsibility to check backup and pagination of files, size and trim, folds, perfing and scoring. Please check the PDF proof returned for your approval very carefully. You are responsible to detect errors in the file prior to giving your approval to proceed. If a new PDF proof is necessary after one complimentary re-proof due to client error there is a minimum charge of $20 for re-trapping and ripping the file and generating a new PDF. There will not be a charge on your first cycle of changes, only changes made after the first cycle. There is no charge if the error is the responsibility of 24 Hour Disc. Once an order has been approved by the client 24 Hour Disc cannot accept any cancellations. There are also no refunds, adjustments, or returns after this point.

Please note that your monitor's calibration affects what you see on your screen. The colors on the printed project may differ from what you see on your screen. PDF proofs are meant only as a general representation of the color on final printed project, but they do accurately show type treatment, trim marks, trapping, etc. Please review these carefully.

Even if a proof is supplied by 24 Hour Disc we do not guarantee to match it. The proof is for reference only. Color will be similar but it will not match the final printed piece. 24 Hour Disc does not guarantee color in any way. If color accuracy is important to you then we recommend that you choose another vendor for your project.
