Boss Design Prints Services Terms and Conditions
Return and Cancellation Policy
Boss Design Prints does not accept any cancellations or issues any refunds once an order has been processed. An order is considered processed when the customer has approved proof(s) and okayed to proceed to printing. The accounting department will then charge customer’s credit card before the order goes into production.
We do our best to make sure your order is printed to specifications and is of the excellent quality our customers come back for. However, printing is not a perfect science and in the rare occurrence that you receive a defective order, we will promptly investigate. If upon investigation, we determine that we made an error, we will reprint it. We reserve the right to request that 100% of the items be returned to us prior to reprinting.

Boss Design Prints 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. Boss Design Prints 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. Boss Design Prints is not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product.
Boss Design Prints will reproduce submitted files, matching the colors as closely as possible; however, we do not guarantee color matching. If any print job is color critical, customer should request a match print proof. A contract proof will be provided at an additional fee. Customer must return signed hard copy proofs in order to proceed. Shipping of proofs (both to and from) are at customer’s expense. Specific color matching may require custom job.
We strongly recommend that content uploaded to Boss Design Prints for print fulfillment is: At a minimum of 300 DPI at 1:1 ratio (or 100%). Content that does not meet this standard may experience print or images that are fuzzy, pixilated or otherwise distorted for which Boss Design Prints does not accept any responsibility. We reserve the right to reject content that does not meet this standard, but we do not assume any obligation to verify that the content meets this criterion. Files should be designed in CMYK and uploaded to Boss Design Prints 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 Boss Design Prints is not responsible for any inaccuracy or color shift that occurs as a result of the conversion).
Turnaround times begin when the customer has accepted their proof. For next day orders, customers will have to approve proof and email okay to print before 9:30 am (Pacific Time) in order to receive next day service. No turnaround time quoted is contractual. Every effort is made to meet quoted time schedule. Incomplete order forms or artwork will delay the process.
Turnaround times do not include shipping time. Delivery times are subject to the contingencies of transportation, unavoidable accidents, strikes, delays, and conditions beyond our control. Exact date of delivery cannot be guaranteed, but are approximated as nearly as possible.
