CRITICAL COLOR REPRODUCTION INFORMATION
GFX Printing (Go4over4.com) utilizes a process of printing referred to as "Gang-Run Printing" which provides affordable four-color printing. "Gang-Run Printing" will group your job with other jobs allowing overall production costs and expenses to be shared with our other customers.
Because of variances in paper, equipment, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production pressroom operations, a "pleasing color" [as determined by generally accepted trade technical methods] is to be expected with gang-run printing. When such a variation occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance. GFX Printing (Go4over4.com) accepts no responsibility for color variations between submitted files and the final printed piece acheived from utilizing the gang-run process. Under
NO circumstances will a reprint be honored for color variations that have occurred during the gang-run printing process. If you require a more precise printed product please request a
custom quote. By placing an order you are agreeing to all of our terms and conditions.
Note, however, that "pleasing colors" does not mean we swap colors, eg: if you supply a bright blue color or Pantone, we do not intentionally print green or some other color. BRIGHT BLUES convert to purple if you have more than 70%-75& Magenta in your CMYK values. WE DO NOT PRESUME YOU WANT BLUE INSTEAD OF PURPLE! We convert Pantones to CMYK without prior customer consent since we cannot print Pantones. Please ensure your designer follows our guidelines as it is your responsibility for any mistakes in color, unless more than 10% shift. Up to 10% shift in color on offset presses and gang printing (100s of files on the same sheet) is considered acceptable.
Prices posted on this website are subject to change without notice. Written estimates are good for 30 days. An estimate not accepted within 30 days may be adjusted at GFX Printing's (Go4over4.com) sole discretion.
2. Payment Terms
ALL orders must be prepaid due to the speed of our turnaround. In the event the details of an order/job have been modified and an unpaid balance is created, the card used to place the original order will be charged. Charges typically will occur within 24-48 hours of the modification, but can take up to 45 days depending on our current workload as these charges must first be individually verified by a human.
3. Late Payments

We guarantee all orders to be within "gang run" specs and to be free of defects in workmanship. If any order does not match the generally accepted trade standards, we will reprint the job or issue the customer a credit at our discretion.
- Print turnaround is based from when production begins.
- When placing an order we will print the corresponding size that is selected unless otherwise stated in the details/special instructions. (if you can not find your desired size, please pick the next size up i.e. if you want a 4x4 flyer you would select "CD Insert (4.75 x 4.75)" and note in the special instructions that you want a 4x4.
- The final piece MAY be up to an 1/8th inch smaller or larger than actual order size unless exact size is selected.
- The final piece MAY slide up, down, left, or right 1/16th inch to 1/8th inch in either direction. So we strongly recommend that you DO NOT use borders in your artwork.
- The final piece MAY be cut slightly uneven, 0 to 10 degree shifts are considered acceptable.
- When reordering, colors MAY be slightly different then original order. (unless a proof is purchased and color matching is purchased for an additional fee).

- If files are submitted in RGB mode, you are authorizing GFX Printing (Go4over4.com) to convert the file(s) to CMYK mode. (converting files from RGB to CMYK may cause color shifting as well as other undesirable results).
- If we only receive one file for a job we will assume that file is to be used for side 1 and side two is blank, unless otherwise stated.
- We will NOT accept files that are emailed. All orders MUST be placed through the website.
If for any reason we must reprint a job, we MUST use the original files uploaded. Under no circumstances will we accept new files for the reprint. Supplying new files is a new order and your credit card will be charged accordingly, including shipping and taxes, if applicable: no exceptions.
26. Turnaround Estimate
Purchasing non-standard upgraded turnaround should NOT be construed as a guarantee and does not apply to any additional production. Additional production includes, but is not limited to folding, scoring, perforating, die-cutting and drilling. (please see section 23., sub category a. for more information on when printing occurs.
Print turnaround times displayed on the price calculator page are only estimates. At GFX Printing (Go4over4.com)'s discretion, if a job does ship by the estimated turnaround, GFX Printing (Go4over4.com) may issue a store credit towards the customer's next order, but the customer must request this credit. The amount of the credit is at the discretion of GFX Printing (Go4over4.com). Resellers do not qualify for store credit.

30. Billing Penalties

31. Inkjet Proofs
Inkjet and laser prints are known to look substantially different than offset printing. We offer quick turnaround and low prices by printing to a "pleasing color" standard, using standard ink densities. There is no guarantee that your finished piece will match your printed proof. This is due to the varying results from different output devices including inkjet printers, continuous tone proofing devices, and film-based proofs.
Our Terms & Conditions for Direct Mail Services.
We offer two EDDM services: Print Only and Full Service.
The EDDM products are printed for delivery to you or for pickup. You may choose the have your products bundled in packs of 50 or 100, pieces or you may choose to have the entire order delivered "loose," i.e., not bundled. If you select Print Only, we do not fulfill any of the USPS requirements for EDDM (whether Retail or Business Mail Entry Unit) products other than the bundling service; you are solely responsible for the setup and delivery of the products to the appropriate United States Postal Service ("USPS") location. We do not select or assist in selecting the postal routes for your EDDM mailing, and we are not responsible for (and do not verify) the layout or setup of your EDDM mailing piece, including, without limitation, the sufficiency and placement of the address and mailing indicia location. Please consult the USPS website for applicable rules and guidelines for proper EDDM processing.
Full Service EDDM provides an interactive map that allows you to select USPS postal routes for your order. This information is provided on an "as is, where is" basis and Go4over4 makes no representation that the information is current or accurate at the time your order is placed. Once you have selected the appropriate routes, you must use the Go4over4 provided template (with pre-set mailing indicia) to create your EDDM mailing piece and to upload the file to Go4over4. If you moved the location of the mailing indicia or address section, please verify that you have complied with USPS rules and guidelines.
Once uploaded, your EDDM order will be printed as received with the number of products needed for delivery. It will be bundled, prepared for mailing and dropped off to the USPS location closest to the Go4over4 production facility that is fulfilling your order. Upon delivery to this USPS location, USPS assumes all responsibility for delivery to your selected postal route(s), and your order is subject to all USPS rules, guidelines and timelines. Any delay, damage or loss occurring after delivery of your order to USPS is the responsibility of the USPS.
When you place your Full Service Order, you can select a "Target in Mailbox Date," which is typically a minimum of twelve (12) business days from the date you place the order. The Target in Mailbox Date is an estimate based on information provided to us by the USPS. Go4over4 does not guarantee that your order will be delivered to your selected postal route(s) by or on a chosen Target in Mailbox Date.
If your order includes time sensitive or dated materials, we recommend that you use the Print Only option, place your order well in advance of the date needed for delivery to the USPS and select a shipping service level that ensures delivery to you by a certain date. If you decide to use the Full Service option for time sensitive or dated material, you are assuming the risk that the materials may not be delivered on time and we recommend selecting a Target in Mailbox Date that is at least 25 days from the date you place your order. A better alternative for time sensitive or dated material may be to use Go4over4's mailing service. Please contact our customer service department for more information.
The Full Service option requires the use of Go4over4's mailing indicia. We provide USPS approved templates, with the mailing indicia and address location pre-loaded, for your download and use. If you move or alter the position of the mailing indicia or address section, however, you are solely responsible for ensuring the new positioning complies with USPS requirements. We will not verify your compliance with USPS requirements when you upload the file to us for processing.
Pre-Payment of USPS Fees
For Full Service Direct Mail, we require a Certified Check in US Funds prior to printing. Please take this additional time into consideration. No credit cards for USPS fees.
Please Note: If the mailing indicia and/or address area does not meet USPS requirements, we do not provide any refunds, whether you choose the Print Only or Full Service option. It is your responsibility to ensure your artwork and any list you provide meets USPS requirements.
Changes to our Terms & Conditions Policy
GFX Printing (Go4over4.com) may change, modify, add or remove portions of this policy at any time, and any changes will become effective immediately upon being posted unless we state otherwise.
