Design Templates Vinyl
Our specifications and templates are clear to someone who knows what he or she is doing. We are not liable for any errors that occur if you do not apply them correctly. We will not send you hard or soft proofs before we print the files. We print everything as it is delivered to us. Nothing can go wrong if you follow our instructions and specifications. Make sure it is designed by someone who knows how to deliver a print-ready file or ask us to design your artwork.
Do you want us to do an extra manual check and take the risk of possible errors? Then choose the option Let Deepgrooves check my Artwork when you place your order via our website or ask your account manager about it.
