UPLOADED CONTENT REQUIREMENTS
Uploaded Content you intend for CandidateSigns.com to use for production is required to be at a minimum of 300 DPI at 1:1 ratio (or 100%).   Uploaded Content that does not meet this standard will likely print in a lower quality, resulting in pixilated, fuzzy and otherwise distorted for which CandidateSigns.com accepts no responsibility.   We reserve the right to reject content that does not meet our published standard, but we assume absolutely no obligation to verify that the content meets this criterion.   File you provide are provided at your own risk.   If you are not sure about your art files, consult a qualified graphic designer to provide CandidateSigns.com files which will print properly.

All art files are to be designed in CMYK and uploaded to CandidateSigns.com in CMYK with NO embedded color profile.   You may upload in RGB or some other standard if you choose, however, the color will be converted and CandidateSigns.com is not responsible for any inaccuracy or color shift that occurs as a result of the conversion.

COLOR QUALITY
CandidateSigns.com guarantees that its prints will meet CMYK industry standards. We cannot guarantee "match-print" color fidelity and cannot prevent slight color shift throughout an order.   Because we cannot control the color reproduction of a customer's computer monitor, we cannot guarantee that the actual print color will precisely match any preview as it appears your monitor.   CandidateSigns.com is not responsible for any color shift in converted photographs (RGB images) with black, near black or gray tones.   Color shifts from a perceived black or gray must be addressed prior to file submission.   Proofs do not guarantee black, near black or gray final output.   Please note that the application of UV coating may have an effect upon or change the appearance of printed colors.   CandidateSigns.com is not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product.

PRODUCTION TIMES
Production Times start the following day a proof is returned to CandidateSigns.com and is completely filled out.   It’ s very important your proof is completed properly, or your order will not advance into production.

CandidateSigns.com's standard production time is dependent on the product ordered if you do not specify otherwise, your order will be produced on our standard production time schedule for the product you’ ve ordered.   Production times NEVER include shipping or transit times.

Production Times DO NOT include shipping time.   The estimated date your order will arrive is a combination of the proofing turnaround, production time and shipping time.   Once your order is placed, it generally cannot be changed without a cancellation fee.

For your convenience, depending on the product ordered, CandidateSigns.com offers a variety of different Production Times.   Not all Production Times are offered on every product the Appropriate Production Time is displayed on the Product Page under Production Specifications.

PLEASE NOTE:   We do not offer local pick up.   If your delivery address is in a location we feel warrants local delivery, we will make arrangements for delivery, for which there is a fee.

PRODUCTION DELAYS
We reserve the right to delay production due to inclement weather.   Every year, we get at least two or three snow storms that shut production down for one or two days.   CandidateSigns.com reserves the right to delay production of any order should any production facility or supplier’ s production facility be closed due to severe weather.

ORDER PROOFING & APPROVAL
A proof is required on every product.   We will not print your item(s) without an appropriate and completed proof.   Please be aware proofing time is not included in Production Time.

We will attempt to provide you with a proof in about one business day.   Often we’ re earlier, sometimes later.

Once you submit a completed proof for production, agreeing that you are fully satisfied with the document layout and content and you accept responsibility for any errors therein. CandidateSigns.com assumes you’ ve verified the spelling, grammar, color, content and layout, are all correct.   We accept NO liability for errors such as misspelling, grammar, damaged fonts, punctuation, transparency, overprint, improper layout, bleeding, erroneous cut or fold lines, die lines or crop marks, sizing, etc.

PROMOTIONS & SPECIAL OFFERS
From time to time CandidateSigns.com may offer promotions and special offers.   Offers may arrive in several forms.   If the offer is in the form of a Coupon Codes, you are limited to a one-time use of the code.

Not all products are eligible for promotions and special offers.   If a Coupon Code does not function when entered, it means the product at issue does not qualify for the promotion or special offer this determination is final.

A Coupon Code may not be combined with any other promotion, special offer, discount or reward offered by CandidateSigns.com.   If you enter a Coupon Code or take advantage of a promotion, special offer, discount or reward, you will not be able to enter another Coupon Code or take advantage of any other promotion, special offer or discount.

Coupon Codes only apply to products ordered through CandidateSigns.com’ s Website they may not be used for orders placed by telephone.

Coupon Codes cannot be used to pay for taxes, shipping and handling or other charges. If the promotion or special offer has a minimum purchase requirement, taxes, shipping and handling and other charges do not apply towards the minimum purchase amount.

If a promotion or special offer is for a defined amount (e.g. $10.00 off) it will only be good for price reduction on one quantity it is our sole discretion to exclude shipping and handling, taxes and other charges.   Certain items may not be eligible for the promotion and will not be included in the calculation.

Promotions and special offers are only valid for a limited time. They will expire on the date or within the timeframe specified in the offer.   If no date or timeframe is specified, a promotion or special offer is valid until the end of the month is which the Coupon Code is first eligible for use.

Coupon Codes (and the Coupons or emails that contain them) are not for resale, have no independent cash value, are not redeemable for cash, and will not be replaced if lost, stolen or deleted.

Coupon Codes will not be retroactively applied against orders already placed with CandidateSigns.com.

If a Coupon Code is used and the entire order is cancelled or rejected, or if you return all items in the order then, subject to the terms of our Returns & Refunds Policy, you’ ll be refunded only the actual amount paid, less any cancellation fees.   The coupon code will no longer be valid.

If only part of your order is cancelled or rejected, or if you return only some of the items in your order, then subject to the terms of our Returns & Refunds Policy the relevant discount or promotion will be applied to the item(s) that are kept.   Under no circumstances will a promotion or special offer of any kind be applied to create a credit balance.
