GRAPHIC DESIGN POLICY
Our graphic design costs are based on basic design service with the customer providing us with the text, images if any and colour scheme they'd like. A customer is entitled to up to 3 proofs to make changes, extra cost may be required for any further changes. Further charges also occur if a customer decides to change said design altogether to a different layout, colour scheme etc. Any Design work carried out must be paid for regardless if a customer goes ahead with a job or cancels for whatever reason, the design fee would still be due. If a deposit for graphic design is paid and work is carried out that deposit is non-refundable as it covers the design work carried out, we can only refund design fee's if an order is cancelled and no work has been carried out.
We use reputable carriers to deliver all our goods on a next working day basis after print completion.
If you require special delivery instructions, or need to ship to anywhere outside Ireland, please contact us to make the appropriate arrangements.
Our carriers aim to deliver on time, however, we cannot be held responsible for failed deliveries or any losses incurred, after goods have left our premises for delivery by a third party. The carriers are fully insured to cover losses but this issue must be addressed with the carrier directly
If you choose to avail of our services and request a proof you have then entered into a verbal/written agreement over the phone or by email. If a customer pulls out of this agreement during the process AB Print and Design will be owed the design costs set out to the customer before the process begins.
If you choose our full graphic design service, an emailed proof will be available for your review . Actual time will vary depending on our current workload. No job will be sent to press without your approval. It is the customer’s responsibility check their proof. We are not liable for delays in the order caused by customer's non-approval of the proof or mistakes found on products after the customer agrees to sign off the proofing.
An emailed 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, spelling and final text.
Artwork Provided by Customer
Our printing system is automated and artwork provided by the customer must be to print ready specifications and it's solely the customers responsibility with any faults in printing if artwork isn't provided to us correctly.

AB Print and Design 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 within the printing process, the accuracy of color reproduction is not guaranteed. By placing and order with AB Print and Design 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.
