Terms of Service
Production time starts the first working day after artwork is approved for printing, not including shipping. Normal turnaround is three to ten working days unless requested otherwise. Some orders with less than a three working day turnaround will have a rush charge; see below for specifications.
TL Trade Show Displays does not charge extra fees for rush orders. However, all items will be required to ship priority or overnight. Please do not ask us to rush and then request ground shipping. For those rush jobs where TL Trade Show Displays has only one chance to fully produce the graphics, the graphics will not be guaranteed. Should your graphics have a defect we will happily reprint the defective graphic/panel after your show at 30% of the standard price.
We appreciate your cooperation by giving us as much time as possible to produce your graphics. In the event your project finishes early it will ship via the scheduled method.
Once your graphics have been received by our Graphics Department, we will review your graphic files to ensure that your artwork meets the requirements outlined in our specifications to produce the highest quality product. If any modifications or a change to the artwork needs to be made, you will be notified, and you will have the opportunity to submit new artwork with the necessary changes. If you prefer to have our Graphics Department make the necessary changes, you will be billed at a rate of $100.00 per hour.
Once our Graphics Department has reviewed and approved your artwork, you will receive a PDF proof via email. You will receive the proof within one (1) business day of submitting acceptable artwork to us. You must send back an approval e-mail before your job is moved into production. Production time starts the first working day after approval e-mail is received and acknowledged. PLEASE NOTE: An e-proof is only to ensure proper art elements are there and size is correct. It does not ensure proper resolution or color accuracy.
Once your approval has been received, the printing process will take 3-10 days. Please note that these production lead times are from the date of approval, not from the date that the artwork was received. If you have purchased graphics that are less than our standard lead-time, then your graphics will ship standard overnight and may not be guaranteed. If you purchased graphics with ground shipping and less than standard lead-time, one of our sales associates will contact you.
Any Changes to shipping address must be received in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to shipment. Shipping is FOB Beaverton, OR. Orders requiring fulfillment must be quoted. Fulfillment charges will apply to all orders with 10 or more shipping addresses.
Physical Proof Service - Your colors verified
Our physical proof service is perfect for your important projects because it allows you to see what the finished product will look like before your graphic is sent to the production department. TL Trade Show Displays cannot guarantee color accuracy or image resolution unless a printed proof is requested.
We will match up to two colors at no charge using your PMS codes, provided that you supplied a file that can easily be modified. We print digitally in CMYK and use PMS colors as a guide; therefore the colors are not exact. We highly recommend that you order a printed proof, in the event that you do not, we will match as close as possible to the PMS colors proved, but are not responsible for the colors not printed to your liking. The customer will be responsible for the overnight freight on printed proofs. your submitted files should be fully approved and print ready; TL Trade Show Displays is not liable for the accuracy of any “predesigned artwork” submitted by client. When reordering, colors MAY be slightly different then original order.
- If files are submitted and do not meet our bleed specifications, TL Trade Show Displays reserves the right to add a border to the file(s).
- If files are submitted in RGB mode, you are authorizing TL Trade Show Displays to convert the file(s) to CMYK mode. (converting files from RGB to CMYK will cause color shifting)
- We will only accept files uploaded through our website.
