At proof approval, you are presented with an interactive delivery date calendar.

Quantity
  • You will receive more pieces than you order, free of charge, almost all of the time.
  • On rare occasions, we may ship slightly fewer pieces than ordered. Printing industry standards allow for underages (shortfalls/deficiencies) of up to 5%, however such underages are the exception, not the rule, at PrintingForLess.com.
  • If you need an absolute guaranteed quantity, we recommend that you order 5% over the quantity that you need. If you are using a mailing service, you may also want to inquire about any additional quantities they may need for equipment calibration, testing, waste, etc.
Your Guarantee
We want you to be delighted with our printing. We will complete your project in accordance with industry-wide trade standards for color and registration. Since monitor calibration varies widely, we run to uniform ink levels and a "pleasing color" standard.

  • We reserve the right to have you return the original order, at our cost, before reprinting or refunding your order.
  • Maximum refund per order or customer is $2500. The only remedy for problems with orders over $2500 is reprinting of the order to correct product defects. We are always reasonable to work with on orders of any size, but the lawyers made us put this part in to protect ourselves from possible fraud.
  • This guarantee is limited to reprint of the original order quantity or refund of the purchase price of the order. We are not responsible for any damages or claims incurred by you or your business caused by receiving printed materials which are defective or incomplete or which you receive later than the estimated delivery date.
