A quotation not accepted within 30 days may be changed. Typically the quote will remain the same for some time. If a price change occurs after the 30 days, we will honor the original quote.
Because of differences in equipment, paper, inks, and other conditions between color proofing and production equipment, a reasonable variation in color between proofs and the completed job is to be expected. When a variation of this kind occurs, it will be considered acceptable performance. LAMA Cutting Inc. will always do its best to reasonably color match book reprints to prior jobs, but a variation in color may occur due to length of time, machinery, and difficulty of exact color matching.
Over-Runs or Under-Runs
Over-runs or under-runs will not exceed (10%) ten percent of the quantity ordered. LAMA Cutting Inc. will bill for actual quantity delivered within this range. If the customer requires a guaranteed quantity, the percentage of tolerance must be stated at the time of quotation. This is because it is difficult to produce an exact amount of product. LAMA Cutting Inc. needs to make a greater amount of product to achieve the requested amount due to set up, human error, defections, waste, and ink or toner marks. The plus/minus 10% is needed to end up with the desired number of products. If the product total is under the desired amount, the customer will be credited that amount.
Unless otherwise specified in writing, payment of half (50%) the amount is required when the order is placed, and the remaining balance before the product is shipped. Claims for defects, damages, or shortages must be made by the customer in writing no later than 10 calendar days after delivery. If no such claim is made, LAMA Cutting Inc. and the customer will understand that the job has been accepted. By accepting the job, the customer acknowledges that LAMA Cutting Inc’s performance has fully satisfied all terms, conditions, and specifications. LAMA Cutting Inc.’s liability will be limited to the quoted cost of defective goods, without additional liability for special or consequential damages. As security for payment of any sum due under the terms of an agreement, LAMA Cutting Inc. has the right to hold and place a lien on all customer property in LAMA Cutting Inc.’s possession. This right applies even if credit has been extended, notes have been accepted, trade acceptances have been made, or payment has been guaranteed. If payment is not made, the customer is liable for all collection costs incurred.
