Welcome to Print Lion (PrintLion.com). This Web site is provided by Waveline Direct, LLC as a service to our customers. Please review the following basic rules that govern your use of the Print Lion (PrintLion.com) site. Please note that your use of the Print Lion (PrintLion.com) site (the "Site") constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms and Conditions. Although you may "bookmark" a particular portion of this Site, bypassing this Agreement, your use of this Site still binds you to these Terms and Conditions. Print Lion (PrintLion.com) reserves the right to update or modify these Terms and Conditions at any time without prior notice to you. Your use of the Site following any such change constitutes your unconditional agreement to follow and be bound by these Terms and Conditions as changed. For this reason, we encourage you to review these Terms and Conditions whenever you use this Site.
All prices and amounts shown on this Site are in U.S. Dollars (USD), unless otherwise noted. If a User submits a request on the Site to purchase printing products, mailing services, design services or other services, the User agrees that all charges, taxes and shipping/handling fees will automatically be charged to the credit card or paid by User with an approved payment method. We require each order to be fully paid, including shipping and handling fees, if applicable, before we complete an order. We will not start working on a print job until we receive the full payment.
Once a print job has been approved by customer and "sent to press" on the Site, no changes are allowed to the artwork files, job characteristics, or printing turnaround time. After a print job has been sent to Print Lion (PrintLion.com) ’s 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 noted.
All sales are final. Since we customize each order according to your file and exact specifications, no refunds are given once Print Lion (PrintLion.com) starts working on your order, which means Print Lion (PrintLion.com) has received your necessary materials (i.e., digital files and payment) and has begun work on your job (i.e., your job is in production).
If we verify that we have made an error, we will re-run the order. We must be notified within 24 hours from delivery of any defects. In order to receive the replacement, customer must return 100% of the defective order at their expense within 5 days of their receipt. We will re-run the order with the original turnaround and send them out via the same paid shipping method. Shipping is non-refundable.
In some cases, a partial or full refund may be extended to the customer if no work has been completed by Print Lion (PrintLion.com) for a specific order. Such refund would be adjusted to cover any fees charged for proofs or other services associated with that order as well as merchant bank fees on credit card transactions.
Refunds resulting from but not limited to, quantity, paper stock and shipping downgrades or cancellations prior to being in production shall be subject to a minimum fee of $15.00, up to 3.5% of the total amount.
Print Lion (PrintLion.com) constantly maintains materials inventory and staff, and schedules time on all equipment for orders that have been placed to ensure our ability to produce them at any certain time. Orders that are not yet in production within 5 days of order already incur additional equipment, labor and inventory costs for Print Lion (PrintLion.com). Orders not approved for print by customer within 90 days of the order being placed will be non-refundable and will incur a fee of 12.5% of the original invoice total for each 30 day period thereafter until 100% of the original invoice total has been accrued in fees.
Each order made from Print Lion (PrintLion.com) is a contract between you, as the customer making the order, and Print Lion (PrintLion.com) . The fact that you have made an order on behalf of a third party does not absolve you of liability to Print Lion (PrintLion.com) . As such, any decision by the third party not to accept the particular items printed or to cancel the order with you does not affect your liability to Print Lion (PrintLion.com).
Print Lion (PrintLion.com) charges sales tax to orders received from within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania unless you are tax exempt. If you are tax exempt, you need to send or fax to us your tax exemption certificate.
If requested, an online proof will be available for your review after we have received your file upload. Actual time will vary depending on our current workload. No job will be sent to press without your approval. It is the customer’s responsibility to log in to their account and check on their proof. We are not liable for delays in the order caused by customer's non-approval of the proof.
An online proof is by no means 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. Neither do they show color change from RGB or Pantone to CMYK.
The proof must be treated as independent from the original submitted file and thoroughly reviewed prior to approval. It should be checked against the original file for possible errors in layout, copy, spacing, punctuation or image placement. Customer is fully responsible for all that is contained in the final approved proof.
Print Lion (PrintLion.com) offers hard copy proofs which show reasonable likeness to the final printed pieces. Such proofs are recommended for color-critical art and must be requested by the customer when the print order is made. Hard copy proofs are printed on a substrate different from the actual paper stock and while it’s main purpose is to show color, variations may occur depending on the finish selected (AQ, matte, UV) for the final print job. We do not offer hard copy proofs for art that would be printed on uncoated paper.
The request for a hard copy proof may involve an additional fee and would extend the amount of time needed to complete the job. For orders where a hard copy proof has been requested, the approval must be received by Print Lion (PrintLion.com) on or before our published cut-off times. We will make every effort to match colors in production when a hard copy proof is requested. However, it is the customer’s responsibility to determine if they need a hard copy proof with their print order.
Print Lion (PrintLion.com) will reproduce color from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density (as viewed in a 5000K light booth). Because of inherent limitations with the printing process, as well as neighboring image ink requirements, the accuracy of color reproduction is not guaranteed. By placing an order with Print Lion (PrintLion.com) you agree to this limitation. We will try our best to match the gradient density of each color, but we accept no responsibility for color variations between submitted files and the final printed piece. Under no circumstances will a reprint be honored for color variations that have occurred during the printing process. We are not liable for color matching or ink density on screen proofs that you approve. Screen proofs will predict design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color or density.
Application of UV coating may effect or change the appearance of the printed colors. We are not liable for the final color appearance of a UV coated product.
Print Lion (PrintLion.com) is not liable for errors in a final product caused by any of the following reasons:
Misspelling, Graphics, Bleeds, Grammar, Damage Fonts, Punctuation, Wrong cuts, Incorrect or Missing Folds, Die Lines, Crop Marks, Transparency, Overprint, Cracks on Folds, Finished Product Size. Print Lion (PrintLion.com) does not make any changes on customer files.
Due to the gang run method that Print Lion (PrintLion.com) uses, we cannot guarantee that every order will be the exact number of items which are ordered. Print Lion (PrintLion.com) can only guarantee that it will come within plus or minus 10% of the number of items ordered.
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 Print Lion (PrintLion.com). Print Lion (PrintLion.com) is not responsible for any issues as to orientation or alignment of the pages of your submitted documents. By submitting the artwork to Print Lion (PrintLion.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.
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.
Printing turnaround time begins once your order has been placed and your print-ready files have been uploaded to your account, attached to your printing job, and approved for printing. Printing turnaround time begins when we receive approval for your proof and full payment has been made. For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided or have submitted files that are not print-ready, printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s), not from when the order was first submitted.
Standard Turn-time for Booklets will be 5-7 Business Days after proof is approved (does not include time in transit)* Rush Turn-time for Booklets will be 4 Business Days after proof is approved (does not include time in transit)**
Standard Turn-time for all other items will be 3 Business Days after proof is approved (does not include time in transit)* Expedited Turn-time for all other items will be 2 Business Days after proof is approved (does not include time in transit)** Rush Turn-time for all other items will be 1 Business Day after proof is approved (does not include time in transit)**

Please note that Print Lion (PrintLion.com) is closed Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays. As a result, these days are not considered when calculating printing turnaround time. In addition, while Production Turnaround includes printing, cutting, and binding, it does not include design, mailing, or shipping transit times, and you should allow additional business days for delivery based on the shipping method you selected. The estimated production turnaround advertised on this site is based on the typical number of hours or days that a print job is completed under normal circumstances, excluding Saturdays, Sundays and holidays.
Printing turnaround time for jobs with approved proofs and payment is guaranteed. The remedy for failing to meet a deadline is limited to a pro-rated refund of any rush charges or a courtesy rush on your next order. Cancellation of an order based on printing turnaround time is only allowed if the customer indicates in writing (e.g., note posted to order) when placing the original order that a job in the order is time sensitive and must be shipped by target date based on printing turnaround option selected. Print Lion (PrintLion.com) will not be responsible for shipping-related costs on orders that do not go out by the due date.
Unless you choose Pick Up or Mailing Services, you need to select one of the shipping options presented to you on the Site. All shipping is currently done via UPS. When choosing a shipping option, please remember that the estimated shipping transit time is based on the number of business days in transit and does not include weekends, holidays or the day the package is picked up by UPS. For instance, a product shipped 2nd Day Air and picked up on a Thursday would be delivered by end of day Monday.
Shipping transit times vary, and Print Lion (PrintLion.com) assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive a job on time. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc.
Print Lion (PrintLion.com) ’s responsibility is limited to preparing your printing order and delivering it to UPS for shipping. Print Lion (PrintLion.com) is not liable for damages which occur in shipping.
If an order is not picked-up from Print Lion (PrintLion.com)'s facility within 30 days, it will be recycled. Should the customer provide alternative delivery/shipping instructions before the 30 day period, the cost shall be paid by the customer.
We cannot ship to P.O. Boxes or APA/FPO addresses.
Target arrival dates are calculated by adding the printing turnaround time to the shipping transit time. If you are requesting a Hardcopy Proof, we already factor in additional time to reach your target date. For Standard Hardcopy Proof, expect approximately six business days to receive and approve your proof. For Next Day Hardcopy Proof, expect two business days. Both printing and shipping times are based on business days only and do not include weekends or holidays.
For example, a product with a printing turnaround time of two business days and a shipping method of 2nd Day Air would have a target arrival date four business days after your files have been received by us.
The cut off time for accepting files is 9:00 A.M. EST. If your files are in by that time, we will commit to printing and shipping your product within the selected timeframe.
Please understand that target arrival dates are estimates, not guarantees. While we will do everything in our power to meet your target arrival date, weather and other occurrences beyond our control may impact our ability to meet that date.
