HOW THE CONTRACT IS FORMED BETWEEN YOU AND US
Your order constitutes an offer to us to buy a Product or Products. All orders are subject to acceptance by Think Ink, and we will confirm such acceptance to you by electronic notification at the end of the ordering process. We are unable to issue an Order Confirmation until such time as the ordering process is complete. The contract between us will only be formed when we send you the Order Confirmation. Once the Contract has been formed, the terms of the Contract cannot be varied without our prior written consent.
As the Products will have been made to your specification or personalised by you, you will not have any right to cancel the supply of any of the Products once you have placed an order.
Quotes obtained on line are current and correct from the point of request. Quotes can/will include any reduction in cost due to offers at any given point. The reduction in cost is only valid once the order has been placed and is subject to change at any point while the quote is not validated into a live order.
Orders, where material is required before a quotation, can only be approved once materials have been seen by Think Ink. Quotes obtained where materials have not been seen are subject to sight of copy and may be liable to revision for whatever reason.
We reserve the right to decline a print job on sight of copy for whatever reason.
ORDERS SUBJECT TO DISCOUNT IN OFFER PERIODS
Quotations are only subject to reduction in cost through live offers when the order is confirmed during the dedicated and advertised offer period. Quotes obtained during an offer period and attracting a discount expire when the offer period ends – THE ORDER MUST BE PLACED AND CONFIRMED IN ORDER TO VALIDATE THE OFFER PRICE. Think Ink has the right to decline the offer of a reduction in price once the offer ends and replace with the original quote as stated on the quotation or to replace it with the preceding offer. This may sometimes include a further reduction in price or a price increase.
All offers placed are subject to the discretion of Think Ink and are well advertised both on the homepage, each product page and emailed to all of our customers, including those signed up to the Think Ink Newsletter.

COLOUR REPRODUCTION ON OUR DIGITAL PRESSES
We will print your work to the best of our ability, however we cannot accept any responsibility for difference in colour between computer screen and the final product. No reprints will be produced where there is a discrepancy over perceived colour, we recommend a hard copy proof for all jobs where colour matching is required.
CANCELLATION OF ORDERS
Any order cancelled will incur a charge for the work which we have already carried out on your behalf.
FAILURE TO MEET AGREED DELIVERY
Whilst every effort will be made to meet our delivery dates, we accept no responsibility for any costs or losses of income sustained by any client due to production delays or any printing undertaken by Think Ink for whatever reason.
You must notify us within 28 days of any failure on our part to deliver the Products ordered within the agreed time (proof of which is required in writing) in order that we can investigate the failure and take appropriate action.
The earliest date we can claim against the Post Office for non-delivery is 15 working days from the date of despatch. We cannot process a reprint before this time. You should notify us by phone or email if your goods have not arrived after 15 working days.
Once you have notified us in accordance with paragraph 8.2, we will then send you a form to complete and return to us. Once the form is received we will redeliver Products to you, at no further cost or expense to you.
The digital printing process involves putting paper through a series of heated rollers which run at a consistent high heat, whilst every effort is made to ensure that the product is of the highest quality, it must be noted that sometimes the production process can produce a small wave effect, this will partly disappear when kept in a consistent environment. This can be noticeable in all products but more so in books once they are bound.
- All reasonable endeavours will be made to deliver the correct quantity of Products ordered by you.
- You acknowledge that variations in respect of quantities are inherent within the printing industry.
- Our liability in respect of shortages is plus or minus 5% of the quantity ordered.
- All overages may be kept by you at no additional cost.
You accept that variations in colours are inherent within the printing process for files submitted in computer format. You also understand and accept that your computer screen is not calibrated or colour-matched to our printing machines and therefore we cannot guarantee that the product colours will match those displayed on your computer screen during the ordering process.

- The Products will be at your risk from the time of delivery.
- Ownership of the Products will pass to you on delivery.
PRICE AND PAYMENT
- The price of any products will be as quoted on our site from time to time, except in cases of obvious error.
- Quoted prices include VAT and delivery costs. You can see a breakdown of these prices once you move into the basket section ready to place your order.

If we fail, at any time during the term of a Contract, to insist upon strict performance of any of your obligations under the Contract or any of these terms and conditions, or if we fail to exercise any of the rights or remedies to which we are entitled under the Contract, this shall not constitute a waiver of such rights or remedies and shall not relieve you from compliance with such obligations.

No waiver by us of any of these terms and conditions shall be effective unless it is expressly stated to be a waiver and is communicated to you in writing in accordance with paragraph 17 above.
If any of these terms and Conditions or any provisions of a Contract are determined by any competent authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable to any extent, such term, condition or provision will to that extent be severed from the remaining terms, conditions and provisions which will continue to be valid to the fullest extent permitted by law.
These terms and conditions and any document expressly referred to in them represent the entire agreement between us in relation to the subject matter of any Contract and supersede any prior agreement, understanding or arrangement between us, whether oral or in writing.
