We reserve the right to adjust our prices should circumstances change that are beyond our control and effect our costs. All estimates are subject to the sight of job and we reserve the right to adjust our charges should work not be as specified on our estimates. Our estimates are approximate only: we do our best to provide an educated guess on how long your project will take, but actual services rendered will be billed.

Time estimates for deliverables are subject to client provision of materials for said job as per the deadlines agreed upon at the project outset. Rush fees apply for late deliverables if there is no subsequent extension of project deadlines. See Rush Fees.
Any materials provided to Imagine That Graphics will be returned upon project completion. Deadlines are subject to the provision of said materials on the agreed upon date at the project outset. If the materials are deemed unsuitable for project use, ITG will inform the client as soon as possible. If suitable materials are not provided by the deadline, project deadlines will need to be extended the equivalent time from the missed deadline ie. if your materials are provided 24 hours later than agreed upon, the project deadline is extended 24 hours. If the project deadline is not able to be extended and ITG agrees to complete the project to the original deadline, Rush fees will apply. See Rush Fees.
We do not read and verify the truthfulness, honesty and legality of any material we create for you and should the content of your print job or website result in any court action or prosecution or liability of any kind then the responsibility is entirely yours and you agree to indemnify us fully should we incur any costs or damage in this respect.The client also warrants that the work does not contain anything that is libelous or scandalous, or anything that threatens anyone’s right to privacy or other personal or economic rights. The client will, at the client’s sole expense, promptly and thoroughly defend ITG in all legal actions on these grounds as long as ITG promptly notifies the client of the legal action and gives the client reasonable time to undertake and conduct a defense. ITG reserves the right to use its sole discretion in refusing to print anything deemed illegal, libelous, scandalous, improper, or infringing upon copyright law.
The client warrants that the subject matter to be printed is not copyrighted by a third party. The client also recognizes that because subject matter does not have to bear a copyright notice in order to be protected by copyright law, absence of such notice does not necessarily assure a right to reproduce. The client further warrants that no copyright notice has been removed from any material used in preparing the subject matter for reproduction. To support these warranties, the client agrees to indemnify and hold Premier harmless for all liability, damages, and attorney fees that may be incurred in any legal action connected with copyright infringement involving the work produced or provided.

Costs incurred by the mistaken use of improperly outdated files will be the responsibility of the provider of those files. 3. The setting and communicating of copyright guidelines and usage guidelines for original images or files are the responsibility of the client. 4. Copies of original files given by the client to ITG remain the property of the client. 5. The amended file created by ITG to achieve an end result or product, will remain the property of the client, provided the client’s account is paid in full.
All design is charged at our hourly rate, NOT on a per project basis. Initial consultations are complimentary, to a maximum of one hour. Any further consultation will be billed. Billing is in 15-minute increments. A Proposal including Project Cost Estimate will be outlined and presented for your review and confirmation of order placement.
Short notice projects and changes will incur Rush Fee charges. If a request is made for an entire project to be completed in 24-48 hours or less from the time we receive all materials for that project, and it is agreed we can complete the project in that time (some projects of course need more time simply because of the size of the project), a Priority Service fee of an additional 50% will be applied to the labor fees. Any project which is mandated for completion and delivery in advance of the projected deadline OR has been modified so as to require more time and the target date cannot be changed, will be subject to a 50%-100% Rush Fee. Same day design services: Priority Service fees of an additional 50% to the labor fees will apply. Rush services may also effect costs of pre-press and printing materials.
The range of colours (gamut) that can be produced on an offset or digital press in CMYK is very limited compared to the colour gamut of a print or monitor. For this reason we cannot guarantee colour matching. Every effort is made to match proof colours as closely as possible, however, due to the inherent differences in monitors, software and hardware, there may be some colour differences between what you see on your monitor and the actual colour of the finished job.
A colour proof is used to simulate how the printed piece will look. Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between colour proofing and production press room operations, a minor variation in colour between proofs and completed jobs can occur.
ITG will submit prepress proofs for the client’s review and approval for jobs when agreed upon. Corrections will be returned to ITG on the proof, together with a an email indicating that the job is “OK as is”, “OK with changes”, or requires “proof of changes”. Until the proof is returned, no additional work will be performed. ITG will not be responsible for undetected production errors if: • proofs are not requested by the client; • the work is printed per the client’s OK; • requests for changes are communicated orally.
Unless we are being specifically asked and paid to get involved with artwork we are not able to edit or verify your computer files free of charge. If you submit your own computer artwork for print then you must verify it yourself before sending it to us. We do not proofread camera ready artwork, but if we catch an error we will let you know. Ultimately all we guarantee is that it will be printed to a good commercial standard. Any work on your files will be billed.
In the unlikely event of us supplying you with faulty work due to error or omission on our part (excluding errors arising from us having to edit your files or if your instructions are unclear) we will re-do your job free of charge on return of the faulty goods. We only guarantee colour matching on jobs that we print within commercially acceptable limits. We strongly recommend a hard copy proof if you require specific colour matching.
We reserve the right to refuse to accept an order or to reject any partially complete order without reason given. This especially but not exclusively applies where we consider the material to be derogatory, indecent, libelous, racist or designed to mislead the public or promote any illegal activity.
Contract between us shall be interpreted in accordance with Canadian Law. Since we only accept work on the basis of the terms here stipulated any transaction between us shall be deemed to incorporate the above terms and conditions which shall take precedence over all other conditions.
