Terms & Conditions
TERMS AND CONDITIONS
Thank you for choosing Custom Plastic Printers, Inc. d/b/a VendGiftCards.com
(“VendGiftCards.com” and also referred to us as “we”, “us” or “our”). To ensure excellent service, our
terms and conditions are set forth below. Using our website, obtaining a quote or placing an order
constitutes acceptance of these terms. Therefore, if you have any questions, please contact us.
QUOTATIONS/ACCURACY OF SPECIFICATIONS
VendGiftCards.com is pleased to provide you with a free quote. You must provide accurate
specifications because our quotes are based on the information provided. If the order deviates from the
original specifications (copy, artwork, electronic files or other specifications), VendGiftCards.com may
need to review and modify the quote. Art submittal specifications guidelines are located on our web
site. Project quotes are valid for up to 30 days unless VendGiftCards.com notifies you otherwise.
PROOF APPROVAL/COLOR PROOFING
VendGiftCards.com provides a proof to give you the opportunity to ensure that your project will meet
your specifications. Please check all card specifications on this proof form carefully because once a proof
is approved, VendGiftCards.com will not accept any liability for errors found after the cards have been
printed. This proof indicates the spelling of the text matter, location of all type, and colors.
VendGiftCards.com recommends that you double check the proof to make certain the proof is
accurate. If you wish to correct the proof, you may do so and resubmit the files. If your changes require
creative work by VendGiftCards.com, such as art creation, modification or proof revision or result in
VendGiftCards.com issuing more than 2 proofs, additional charges apply.
VendGiftCards.com will try to match colors as closely as possible to ensure correctness and accuracy.
However, because of standard variation in the printing process, you agree that VendGiftCards.com’
cannot guarantee a color match. In addition, the proof does not represent actual colors because colors
appear different based on the equipment and viewing method. For example, colors may appear
different based on the type of computer, monitor or printer, and printing on plastic is at 300 dots per
inch (dpi) whereas printing on paper is at 1200 dpi which may also make the colors appear somewhat
different. If you have questions about color, please contact us or you can check the color further in a
PMS color chart or pantone book. In addition, if color accuracy is imperative, you can request a press
proof which shows how the color will actually print. Although there is an additional fee for a press proof,
this is the best way to ensure the color matches your needs.
For your convenience, VendGiftCards.com offers creative design services at the highly competitive rate
of $75 per hour. VendGiftCards.com staff can create your logo or other artwork. Creative design
services are billed in 15 minute increments. VendGiftCards.com retains ownership rights of sketches,
copies and all other creative work we develop or provide until the work is paid for.
Upon receipt of project proof approval, VendGiftCards.com will charge 100% of the quoted project
price. Unless VendGiftCards.com’ accounting department has approved credit terms, you must make
full payment of the quoted project price before VendGiftCards.com will begin production.
VendGiftCards.com accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover or payment by PayPal,

already paid for, such as charges for shipping, additional taxes, creative services, rush fees and/or any
sales tax payable for the services.

account becomes past due, you also agree to pay VendGiftCards.com’ collection costs and fees
associated with account collection, whether litigation is initiated or not.
