All cards are placed on the printing press with other jobs or “gang printed”. CASE Marketing Group will reproduce color from submitted transparencies, slides, photos or digital layouts as closely and accurately as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density (as viewed in a 5000K light booth) because of limitations in the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements. The accuracy of each color reproduction is guaranteed to be within a minimum of 85-90% of the original image you submit. CASE Marketing Group accepts no responsibility whatsoever for color variations between submitted images and the actual artwork or product they represent. You should also note that your computer monitor’s calibration affects the colors displayed on your monitor’s screen. The colors on the printed cards may differ from what you see displayed when viewing your layout via CASE Marketing Group’s final approval process. The emailed PDF proof only presents the design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color or density. For reprints, CASE Marketing Group strongly suggests that you mail a hard copy of the original order for an accurate color review. Also, if your order is color critical, CASE Marketing Group strongly suggests you purchase a hard copy color proof from CASE Marketing Group Hard Color Copies are available at an additional charge and will delay the turn around time.
