Product Pricing and Availability
The Products displayed on this Site are subject to availability. The Company reserves the right, without prior notice, to discontinue or change pricing or specifications on Products and services offered on this Site without incurring any liability whatsoever.
Altered Printing has made every effort to display as accurately as possible the colours of the Products that appear on the Site. As the actual colours you see will depend on your computer’s monitor we cannot guarantee, however, that your monitor’s display of any colour will be accurate.
The Company endeavours to match your artwork as closely as possible. Should the artwork not be print ready, the Company will charge an editing fee of R15-50 and/or a design fee of R500 per hour.
For printing, the artwork must be supplied in the following formats:
Photographic Images: High resolution JPEG Format
Interlaced PNG for transparent backgrounds
Vector Images converted to curves
Word files only as layout samples: please send artworks separately as accepted file format.
The sublimation printing process delivers photo-realistic results, so artwork should have a resolution of at least 150dpi. Should the artwork be lower than that, pixels might be noticeable, although it will still be printable. The Company endeavours to make the artwork look as good as possible
For standard orders, the Company’s lead times will be deemed to commence on the date and time that Altered Printing receives in writing all signed off approvals of the artwork and payment of the funds have been cleared.
