By Placing An Order With Rooster Tail Designs, You Agree To The Following Terms:
Turnaround Rooster Tail Designs estimates that all orders containing only flat pieces will be ready to ship within 7-10 business days from the business day we receive the completed order. All orders placed before 3pm Central will be considered ordered that business day. Any order placed after 3pm will be considered ordered on the following business day. Rooster Tail Designs will do everything in its power to correctly produce your job in a timely manner, but cannot guarantee a specific shipping or arrival date. The 7-10 business day turnaround is an estimate, and is not to be confused with a guarantee. Orders printed on 14pt C2S and aqueous coated are the only products that are offered in those time estimates. If any postproduction work needs to be done to the order then the turnaround is then null and void. Finishing includes but not limited to: Folds, Scores, Perforations, Die-cuts, and Drilling.
Payment Terms All orders must be prepaid due to the speed of our turnaround. Your order will not go to print until all checks have cleared. This could cause a significant delay in your order. Under no circumstances will Rooster Tail Designs print a job COD or give credit terms.
Quotations/Estimates Prices posted on this website are subject to change without notice. Written estimates are good for 15 days. An estimate not accepted within 15 days may be changed.
Orders Rooster Tail Designs reserves the right to use its sole discretion in refusing to print anything it deems improper or known to be illegal. Rooster Tail Designs is not liable for any damages resulting from unwitting violation of copyright laws or illegal use of trade names or slogans. The client guarantees the legal title of all matter submitted to Rooster Tail Designs for printing and/or publication.
Cancellations Canceled orders require compensation for incurred costs and related obligations at the time of cancellation. A minimum charge of $75 is applied to jobs canceled before plating occurs (usually 3 hours after your proof is approved). No refunds will be given for orders canceled after plating has occurred.
on Printed Materials Rooster Tail Designs offers free design with any printing order. Free Design does have a 3-hour time limitation. If in the opinion of any Rooster Tail Designs employee that a design is deemed beyond standard practices, Rooster Tail Designs can charge a design fee starting at $75/hour. The client will be warned of such charges prior to them incurring. Charges will only be made or enforced under extreme circumstances when a client goes far beyond their allotted Free Design time.
The free design is only valid for individuals who print and follow through with their order. If at any time during the proofing process you decide to back out/cancel the print order and would like a refund, you will be charged for the design up to that point (minimum $75). Once the difference is determined you will receive your refund along with the current digital format of the postcard/business card design.

Prepress Proofs When requested by the customer, Rooster Tail Designs will submit color hard copy proofs for the customer's review and approval.

Proofs are waived by the client;
The work is printed per the client's written OK;
Requests for changes are communicated verbally.
All requests for changes of any kind must be made in writing to avoid mistakes. Any proof request waives our turnaround guarantee.
Digital Proofs To Adhere to a timely manner, we strongly encourage the use of our digital format proofs. We will provide proofs either online or via email. CLIENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PROOFING ALL ASPECTS OF PRINTED DESIGN WORK.
The Guarantee of Color and Exact Color Matching Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a "pleasing color" variation between color proofs and the completed job [as determined by generally accepted trade technical methods] is to be expected. When such a variation occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance. We do not guarantee an exact color match to the art submitted. If the art is submitted as a any color mode other than CMYK we will convert the color mode to CMYK. If there is a color shift we are not responsible for that color shift. If you do not understand the complete specifications we require for submitted art please go to our art submission page for a complete and detailed list.
Inkjet Proofs Inkjet and laser prints are known to look substantially different than offset printing. We offer quick turnaround and low prices by printing to a "pleasing color" standard, using standard ink densities. There is no guarantee that your finished piece will match your printed sample. This is due to the varying results from different output devices including inkjet printers, continuous tone proofing devices, and film-based proofs.
Overruns/Underruns Rooster Tail Designs will normally deliver the exact quantity of goods ordered plus a small additional amount. There is no extra charge for the additional amount. In the event of an underrun, Rooster Tail Designs may bill for the actual quantity delivered. The generally accepted trade practice is plus or minus 5%.
Delivery Charges for delivery of materials and supplies from the client or the client's supplier to Rooster Tail Designs are not included in quotations unless specified. Rooster Tail Designs is not responsible for delays and/or damage incurred during shipping. Title for finished work passes to the customer upon delivery to the carrier at shipping point; or upon mailing of invoices for the finished work or its segments, whichever comes first.
Claims Claims for defects, damages, or shortages must be made by the client in writing no later than 10 calendar days after delivery. If no such claim is made, Rooster Tail Designs and the client will understand that the job has been accepted. By accepting the job, the client acknowledges that Rooster Tail Designs' performance has fully satisfied all terms, conditions and specifications.
