Terms and Conditions

USER CONTRACT

Welcome to SchultSchoolSpirit.com. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS & CONDITIONS CAREFULLY. BY ACCESSING THIS WEBSITE, YOU AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THE TERMS & CONDITIONS STATED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS & CONDITIONS STATED BELOW, PLEASE DO NOT ACCESS THIS WEBSITE. SchultSchoolSpirit.com and Schult Industries collectively referred to herein as “SchultSchoolSpirit.com”, 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 SchultSchoolSpirit.com 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.

ORDER RESPONSIBILITY

The customer is fully responsible for final proof and layout approval prior to completing their order and before the printing process. Any jobs that have been approved and/or sent to press cannot be altered or changed due to the nature of the printing process, and no refund will be given.

SchultSchoolSpirit.com, Schult Industries or its subsidiaries collectively referred to herein as “SchultSchoolSpirit.com”, shall NOT be LIABLE for errors in a final product caused by any of the following elements within provided artwork: 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.

PROOFS

Previews generated by the Zakeke Product Designer may differ slightly in appearance from final printed products. If, during the proofing process, our design team determines that changes should be made to the artwork to improve legibility, quality, or for any other reason, we will contact you via email with a list of changes made and/or assets needed and an updated proof.

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 overprint issues. They also do not show the color change from RGB or Pantone to CMYK. Therefore, SchultSchoolSpirit.com and Schult Industries 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.

ARTWORK

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 72 DPI and CMYK color mode. SchultSchoolSpirit.com 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. SchultSchoolSpirit.com is also not responsible for any color shift that occurs in conversions from RGB to CMYK color modes.

Color Accuracy

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 SchultSchoolSpirit.com. SchultSchoolSpirit.com is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted documents. By submitting the artwork to SchultSchoolSpirit.com, 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. SchultSchoolSpirit.com 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.

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) 0.125 inch outside of the trim line on each side (this is called a “bleed”) and place all critical elements (text, images, graphic elements, logos, etc.) 0.125 inch inward on each side from the trim line. Anything left too close to the trim line within 0.125 inch inward or 0.125 inch outward may be cut. Please allow for a cutting tolerance of 0.250 inch. We recommend no borders due to shifting in the cutting process because they may appear uneven.

Black Ink

Full color jobs that contain large solid areas of black ink should have the black set up as CMYK black (100, 100, 100, 100). SchultSchoolSpirit.com 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).

Customer Content

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 SchultSchoolSpirit.com.

Reproductions of Currency

The law specifically restricts photographs or other printed reproductions of paper currency, checks, bonds, revenue stamps and securities of the United States and foreign governments. The Counterfeit Detection Act of 1992, Public Law 102-550, in Section 411 of Title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations, places the following restrictions on U.S. Currency illustrations:

Color Reproductions

Section 411 of Title 31 of the Code of Federal Regulations permits the printing, publishing or importation, or the making or importation of the necessary plates or items for such printing or publication, of color illustrations of U.S. currency provided that:

  1. The illustration must be of a size less than three-fourths or more than one and one-half, in linear dimension, of each part of any matter so illustrated;
  2. The illustration must be one sided; and
  3. All negatives, plates, digitized storage medium, graphic files, magnetic medium, optical storage devices, and any other thing used in the making of the illustration that contain an image of the illustration or any part thereof shall be destroyed and or deleted or erased after their final use in accordance with this section.

Black and White Reproductions

Title 18, United States Code, Section 504 permits black and white reproductions of currency and other obligations, provided such reproductions meet the size requirement.

The information on this page is based on information presented on the Government Websites referenced above at the time this document was placed online. Check the site (http://www.ustreas.gov/) for updates and changes to the law prior to relying on the information presented here.

Although we try to check customer artwork for these requirements, we do not guarantee, nor do we take any responsibility if a reprint is required due to customer supplied artwork not meeting legal restrictions.

PAYMENT

All prices and amounts given on SchultSchoolSpirit.com are in U.S. Dollars (USD), unless otherwise noted.

If a customer purchases any products or services at SchultSchoolSpirit.com, the customer agrees to fully pay for all charges, including taxes and shipping/handling fees, by credit card or with an approved payment method BEFORE we complete an order. We will not start working on a print job until we have received the full payment.

Once a print job has been approved by the customer, no changes are allowed to the artwork files, job characteristics, or printing turnaround time. After a print job has been sent to our prepress department, the customer is responsible for paying the entire amount of that print job along with applicable taxes and shipping/handling fees, unless otherwise agreed upon in advance.

Sales Tax Policy

SchultSchoolSpirit.com charges Missouri State Sales tax based on all orders unless you are tax exempt. If you are tax exempt, you need to send or fax to us your tax exemption certificate at the time of order.

Job Cancellation

Once an order has been sent to the press and/or work has been started, the job CANNOT be changed and there will be NO REFUNDS.

Refund Policy

All sales are final. Since we customize each order according to your file and exact specifications, no refunds will be given once SchultSchoolSpirit.com starts working on your order. Usually, work will begin on your job as soon as we have received your files and payment. In the event that a mistake is present on the final product (i.e. misspelling or the wrong item was received), Schult Industries will reprocess the order ONCE free of charge.

Marketing Promotions and Discounts

Please Note: All prices and specifications are subject to change without notice. No adjustments will be made after an order is placed. Check our home page for updated online prices. Special Offers are not valid for previous purchases before the promotion start date or after the promotion expiration date. Our promotions apply to printing charges only. Custom quotes, mailing postage, shipping charges and sales tax, etc. are excluded from our discounted offers. Multiple promotions and discounts cannot be combined.

TURNAROUND TIME

Turnaround time on printing orders begins once full payment has been received for your order, AND your print-ready files have been uploaded to your account, attached to your printing job, and approved for printing.

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 8am - 4pm Central, excluding all national and federal holidays.

All jobs with standard turnaround times submitted and approved after 8am Central on any business day, the job will begin production (day 1 of turnaround time) the following business day. 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. SchultSchoolSpirit.com is closed Saturdays, Sundays and holidays, so these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time.

In addition, while Production Turnaround includes printing, cutting, and binding, it does not include mailing or shipping transit times. If you are having the order shipped, you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you select.

Annual SchultSchoolSpirit.com non-production dates: New Years day on January 1, Memorial Day on the last Monday in May, Independence Day on July 4, Labor Day on the first Monday in September, Thanksgiving on the fourth Thursday & Friday in November, Christmas Eve on December 24, and Christmas on December 25.

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.

Rush Options

For rush orders, please speak with one of our customer service representatives. Email us at support@schult.com or Call us at 816-874-4600.
