IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS & CONDITIONS STATED BELOW, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS THIS WEBSITE. Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. and Progimpex. collectively referred to herein as “Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V.”, reserve the right to change, modify or amend these terms and conditions without notice. For this reason, we encourage you to review these Terms and Conditions whenever you use this site.
PRODUCTS and SERVICES
Products and services provided by Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. are for your personal use only. You agree to abide by these terms of service and not to use these products and services or related messages for any unsolicited or unauthorized advertising, promotional materials, “junk mail,” “spam,” “chain letters,” “pyramid schemes,” or any other form of solicitation.
The customer is fully responsible for final proof and layout approval prior to the printing process. Any jobs that have been approved and/or or sent to press cannot be altered or changed due to the nature of the printing process, and no refund will be given.
Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. or its subsidiaries collectively referred to herein as “Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V.”, shall NOT be LIABLE for errors in a final product caused by any of the following reasons: Misspelling, Graphics, Bleeds, Grammar, Damaged Fonts, Punctuation, Wrong Cuts, Incorrect or Missing Folds, Die Lines, Crop Marks, Transparency, Overprint, Cracks on Folds, Finished Product Size, Poor Orientation or Alignment.
An online proof will be available for your review after you have uploaded your files. We strongly urge customers to check the electronic proof of their artwork before submitting the order. No job will be sent to press without your approval.
An online proof is NOT an accurate color reproduction of your final printed piece but is the final opportunity for you to check the layout, bleeds, crops and final text. Electronic proofs do not show transparency and over print issues. They also do not show the color change from RGB or Pantone to CMYK. Therefore, Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. will not be liable for color variation between the proof and the printed product. We will try our best to match the colors of the proof and the printed product but please understand that color variation differences are inherent inconsistencies of the printing process and we will not be held responsible for it. It is the customer’s responsibility to determine if the job is color critical.
The proof should be checked by you against the original file for possible errors in layout, copy, spacing, punctuation or image placement. You, the Customer are fully responsible for all that is contained in the final approved proof, so please make sure you review it thoroughly.
Under these Terms and Conditions, you agree that you will NOT upload any artwork files consisting of the following material: offensive, indecent or improper material, any material that could give rise to any civil or criminal liability under applicable law; and any material that could infringe rights of privacy, publicity, copyrights or other intellectual property rights without the permission of the owner of these rights and the persons who are shown in the material if applicable. We will refuse an order, which in our opinion may be illegal in nature or an infringement on the rights of any third party. You accept full legal liability for the content of material processed and printed on your behalf and under your instructions. We reserve the right to refuse an order without disclosing a reason.
Art Resolution Requirements
All artwork, designs and images must be provided in minimum of 300 DPI and CMYK color mode. Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. is NOT RESPONSIBLE for images printed as fuzzy, distorted or pixilated due to low resolution artwork provided by the customer, especially if it is approved by the customer already. Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. is also not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes.
Our prepress department checks all submitted artwork files before printing, but you are still 100% responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and we encourage you to proofread all files carefully before submitting to Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V.. Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted documents. By submitting the artwork to Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V., you certify that you have the right to use the image(s) in your artwork files. DO NOT send any “one-of-kind” transparencies, prints or artwork. Although we take every precaution to safeguard your materials, we are NOT responsible for loss or damage of images or artwork. Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. is also not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes. For submitted artwork, please use CMYK color codes for best printing results.
Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. uses gang run printing which is subject to a 10% color variance. If a job is color critical, then the necessary attention it needs cannot be attained in a gang-run format. Therefore, the job must be printed by itself without the discounted price of gang-run printing. Color critical jobs require a dedicated run where the press is calibrated specifically to that run and job rather than a gang-run with other print jobs.
Bleed and Margin Requirements
Since cutting cannot be guaranteed to be exactly in the same place for a large quantity of print products, you must stretch the background (if there is one) 3 mm outside of the trim line on each side (this is called a “bleed”) and place all critical elements (text, images, graphic elements, logos, etc.) 3 mm inward on each side from the trim line. Anything left too close to the trim line within 3 mm inward or 3 mm outward may be cut. Please allow for a cutting tolerance of 6 mm. We recommend no borders due to shifting in the cutting process because they may appear uneven. Please refer to our templates for visuals.
Customers must upload artwork so that the two sides (front and back) of the finished product back up correctly. For flat, folded and die-cut work, excluding bound products, all pages are backed up head to head (top of the proof on one side lines with top of proof on other side). The head of one side backs up to the head of the other page on two sided work. Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. recommends that you always print the proofs and back them up head to head to make a folding model to ensure that your artwork is set up properly, please do this BEFORE you submit the front-side and back-side artwork.
Our automated systems require that art is uploaded as a single, multi-page PDF file. Page sorting is the same as when viewing your book; for example: 28-page booklet or calendar PDF: page 1 = outside front cover; page 2 = inside front cover; page 3-26 = subsequent pages; page 27 = inside back cover; page 28 = outside back cover. Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. will not be able to proceed with your bound product order unless these requirements are met.
Full color jobs that contain large solid areas of black ink should have the black set up as CMYK black (100, 100, 100, 100). Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. will not be liable for printing a consistent, solid and rich black if artwork is not set up to this specification (rich black should not be used for text because it may cause registration problems).
All information, data, text, photographs, graphics, messages or other materials are the sole responsibility of the person from which the content originated. By uploading your text and artwork you, the customer, agree to be held entirely responsible for all the content that you send, upload, transmit, or post to Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V..

For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided or have submitted files that are not print-ready (and causes a delay), printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s), not from when the order was first submitted.
All turnaround times are based on business days and office hours: Monday through Friday 9am – 5pm, excluding all national and federal holidays.

If the job is submitted and approved on a weekend, the job will begin production on the next business day.
The estimated production turnaround on this site is based on the typical number of hours or days that a print job requires to complete under normal circumstances, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.

Low Quality Artwork
If we deem that submitted artwork is low-quality (i.e. low resolution) which will cause low quality prints, we may put your job ON HOLD until you re-submit and re-approve new artwork. This time is NOT INCLUDED in the turnaround time. Furthermore, the customer is 100% responsible if the artwork they submit is low quality, and in turn, the products produced are low-quality.

OVERPRINT and UNDERPRINT POLICY
Due to our gang-run method of production that Personal Promotions by Progimpex Comm.V. uses (printing several print jobs together on the same print run, thus spreading the cost of printing amongst all jobs on the form to lower the cost for our customers), we cannot guarantee that every order will be the exact number of items ordered.
