Terms and Conditions of Use and Legal Disclaimer of Website
PLEASE READ THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE AND LEGAL DISLAIMER ("Terms & Conditions") CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS SITE.
ThePaperWorker and ThePaperWorker.com (collectively, the "Site") is owned and operated by The Colad Group, LLC ("Colad", "we" or "our"). By using the Site, you unconditionally agree to these Terms & Conditions and acknowledge that these Terms & Conditions constitute a binding agreement with you and Colad under New York Law. If you do not agree to these Terms & Conditions, you may not access the Site. Colad cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted through the internet. Consequently, you transmit all such information at your own risk. We reserve the right to modify this Disclaimer at any time, for any reason. Therefore, you should periodically check for changes to the Terms & Conditions, but you agree to accept those changes, whether or not you have reviewed them. These Terms & Conditions applies only to the Site and not to the sites, if any, which the Site hyperlinks to.
Quality Guarantee: Within 10 days of the Site shipping your order, if you aren't satisfied with the quality of the product that you receive, please email us at Quality (at) ThePaperWorker (dot) com. We will consider your concerns and if appropriate, propose corrections to your order.
Layout Disclaimer: You are solely responsible for the layouts of your orders placed on the Site. Please verify all layouts and order information carefully prior to submitting your approval for your order.
1. Accuracy of Orders:
You are solely responsible for the accuracy of your layouts. Please proofread all layouts carefully. Colad reserves the right to refuse to print any material that Colad determines, in its sole discretion, is immoral, illegal or inappropriate for any reason. If your material is deemed unacceptable, you will be notified promptly and permitted to change the content or layout to fit our requirements. Colad reserves the right to request layouts be in a form as outlined on the Site that shall include, but not be limited to, requirements related to resolution, bleed, margins, loading and back up, formatting, and color modes. Bleed is required in the manufacturing process due to normal manufacturing variation & movement, and it is the User's responsibility to ensure that submitted artwork contains sufficient bleed.
Colad will reproduce the color from the digital files you submit as accurately as possible, but cannot exactly match color and density (as viewed in person with actual specimens) because of limitations in the printing process, and limitations in image toner. Colad accepts no responsibility whatsoever for color variations between submitted images and the actual artwork or product they represent. All colors contained within any RGB digital file will be converted to CMYK color space. This may cause the RGB colors to visually change due to color space differences.
When solid floods of color are present in your graphics, please add the minimal amount of noise ('film grain texture') to the solid color to assist in keeping the solid color smooth and consistent when printing digitally.
To help lower your cost of printing, Colad may print several jobs together, known in the industry as “gang run printing.” All gang run printing is subject to a 10% color variance. If your job is color critical, we recommend that you order a Hard Copy Proof to ensure color matching. It is your responsibility to determine if your job is color critical prior to placing your order.
Application of film lamination or UV coating may effect or change the appearance of the printed colors. Colad is not liable for the final color appearance of film laminated products.
Graphics Registration, Variation & Movement:
Printing, laminating, mounting, wrapping, lining, diecutting, folding, gluing, riveting, and all other types of printing & post-press finishing are not exact manufacturing processes. It is possible for you to design product with critical graphics registration and crossovers that cannot be achieved in manufacturing. While variation depends on the product and machinery required to manufacture it, Colad allows for 1/16” tolerance for variation in registration with EACH production process that affects position of graphics on the product. For example if your product 1) prints, 2) mounts to another substrate, 3) diecuts, and 4) folds, then each of these production processes may each introduce 1/16” variation and in this example, the final product may show up to 1/4" total movement variation (4 production processes with 1/16” variation each). Colad does not review your artwork to check for this; it is the user's responsibility to understand that registration variation can occur in finished product and if the user designs graphics with critical crossovers that cannot be achieved in manufacturing, Colad does not warn the user or stop your project at the manufacturing stage.
Bleed and Caution Margin Requirements:
The edge of final printed piece is called the trim line. If you want your image to extend to the trim line, you must include at least 1/8” symmetrical bleed (margin) for such designs. You must exclude important content from the caution zone, defined by the inner 1/8” margin to the trim line. Adherence to bleed and caution margins are important to image fidelity. If at any point you are unsure of the design requirements for your artwork, please contact a Team Member for assistance.
If you place an order and do not order a Proof, your job(s) will be printed as is. It is your responsibility to review your order prior before placing it and/or before approving it to print. Customer is fully responsible for final proof and layout approval prior to the printing process. Colad is not liable for artwork that is sent 'as-is'. Colad will not be responsible or liable for:
• Spelling, punctuation, missing ® or ™ or other symbols, or other grammatical errors made by you;
• Inferior quality or low-resolution of uploaded images;
• Design errors or color selection errors introduced by you in the artwork file creation process, including bleed issues;
• Errors in user-selected options such as product type, paper selection, size, finishing options, or quantity;
• Damaged or missing fonts;
• Incorrect file dimensions, image orientation, inclusion of Die Lines in your artwork, or otherwise incorrect file submission in accordance with our specifications;
• Border, transparency, or overprint issues in artwork provided by you;
• Duplicate orders placed by you;
• Incorrect file layout for folding, scoring, hole drilling, die cutting or other custom services selected by you;
• Incorrect finished product size selected or provided by you;
• Incorrect shipping address, undeliverable packages/3rd delivery attempts, or other errors created by you; and
• Color matching or ink density on screen proofs approved by you.
Several types of Proofs are offered on our Site. PDF Proofs are ‘screen’ proofs. The colors on the printed product may differ for any one or more of these reasons from what you see during the online final approval process. PDF Proofs only present the design layout, text accuracy, image proportion and placement, but not color or density or registration variation / movement which will occur as further defined below. Your computer monitor's calibration affects the colors displayed on your monitor's screen. Colad will not be liable for color variation between a PDF Proof and the final printed product. If your project is color critical, we suggest you purchase a Hard Copy Proof to evaluate color standards before approving your job to print.
This site offers users the ability to purchase 3D PDF Proofs. 3D PDF Proofs help users to understand how their dimensional product will appear, more efficiently than a flat 2D image. 3D PDF Proofs are not exact but rather a dimensional representation of a finished product. Graphics registration, crossovers and positioning are represented in the 3D PDF Proof but user should not assume their final product will match 3D PDF Proofs exactly. As described in the “Graphics Registration, Variation & Movement” section of this document, registration, variation & movement occur in manufacturing processes that affect the final product. User should not design critical graphics registration with folds, breaks or crossovers because even though user can design it, that does not mean that manufacturing can attain it. If you are uncertain of your graphics please contact us.
The Hard Copy Proof is printed on a substrate (i.e. special proofing paper) which is different than the final paper stock used in the final printing process. The Hard Copy Proof is color-matched to a four color process on coated papers and does not simulate other stocks such as uncoated paper. Accordingly, while a Hard Copy Proof will visually show color and guarantees a reasonable likeness to the final printed pieces, variation between the Hard Copy Proof and the final printed piece should be expected. If a variation occurs due to these circumstances, the resulting printed job is considered acceptable.
For all proofing options, additional charges apply if you need to resubmit new artwork after reviewing your selected proof option.
Advanced Artwork Check:
We do not preflight your artwork as standard procedure. Choose “Advanced Artwork Check,” if you want us to review your artwork. With this service we check 15 factors including resolution, bleeds, fonts, file size, folds, orientation, color tones, black tones, finishing options, etc. If your file needs corrections our prepress technicians will spend up to 30 minutes fixing the files. If we correct your file, revised artwork will be uploaded for you to review and approve. We cannot fix low-resolution artwork without a replacement high-resolution image or file, and we do not check for spelling or grammatical errors.
Advanced Artwork Check adds 1 business day to your order for review & corrections, PLUS the time it takes you to access your account on our website to approve your revised file. If no corrections are made we will send your project to press without requiring further approval by you.
You must provide at minimum 300 dpi high resolution images suited for offset printing. Artwork submitted lower than 300 dpi will likely result in a poor or low quality printed image. Colad is not liable for fuzzy or pixilated printed images resulting from low resolution artwork. Any original media (discs, pictures, slides, proofs, etc.) are non-returnable and become our property unless pre-arrangements are made. Preferred file type is Adobe PDF. Acceptable applications for Mac & PC include (but are not limited to) Quark Xpress, Adobe PageMaker, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign, Adobe Photoshop and Adobe PDF. Additional charges may apply if furnished media are incompatible with our software. We cannot guarantee consistent results if files are generated by other applications like Microsoft Publisher. For best results, all rasterized files should be converted to CYMK. All fonts must be included or embedded. Images must be flattened with CMYK in TIFF or EPS format. Proof approvals will only be accepted in written format. No verbal approvals will be accepted.
Colad is Chain-of-Custody certified by two independent certification agencies: the Forestry Stewardship Council ("FSC"), and the Sustainable Forestry Initiative ("SFI"). Many products sold by Colad through ThePaperWorker.com are either FSC certified, or SFI certified. Some pre-templated artwork features a certification logo. The user may delete the logo but the user may not alter the logos in any way. If the user inserts graphics that cover or conceal the certification logo, user still accepts that their product may be either FSC or SFI certified. FSC and SFI have their own requirements for presentation of their logos; if a user inserts graphics that partially but not fully conceal the certification logo or that are set too close to the certification logo, then Colad reserves the right to deem your artwork unacceptable, in which case you will be notified promptly and permitted to change the content or layout to fit our requirements. The user agrees that in no way does the presence of an FSC or SFI certification logo transfer to the user any rights to use the FSC or SFI logos on any other products; for user to advertise or make claims that user, user's business, or any other entity related to the user is FSC or SFI certified; or for user to use the FSC or SFI logos in any off-product promotions. User agrees to abide by all terms and conditions imposed by FSC and SFI, respectively, regarding the use of their copyrighted and trademarked logos. Colad may at any time and without notice end its certification with FSC and/or SFI.

7. Other Fees:
Your order may be subject to other fees. For example, if you order a Hard Copy Proof you are entitled to up to 1 resubmission of artwork to generate a second Hard Copy Proof. Subsequent resubmissions of artwork trigger another Hard Copy Proof charge. Explanations of other fees can be found in the Tooltips of specific order options. If you are unsure about other fees, please speak with a Team Member.
8. Production Time and Delivery:
Turnaround is the number of business days a product requires for production. Turnaround does not include shipping time or cost. All Turnaround times are based on business days, Monday through Friday and exclude all national and federal holidays. Some order options may affect turnaround.
When Turnaround times begin depends on how you order your product, your Proof Type selection, and if you select Advanced Artwork Check.
• If you design online and order “Proof Online, Run As Is”, your Turnaround begins at 7am EST on the nearest business day.
• If you Upload Artwork and order “Proof Online, Run As Is”, your Turnaround begins at 7am EST on the nearest business day AFTER you submit your completed artwork.
• If you select any Proof Type other than “Proof Online, Run As Is”, your Turnaround begins at 7am EST on the nearest business day AFTER you have reviewed your selected proof and approved your job to print.
• The selection of Advanced Artwork Check adds a minimum of 1 business day to your selected Turnaround to provide us time to conduct this service. If your artwork is found to have issues that will affect print quality, your job will be placed On Hold so you may revise your artwork, or waive the warning to print "as is." Printing turnaround time will be on hold until you either upload new files or approve the job to print despite the artwork issues. Turnaround begins at 7am EST on the nearest business day AFTER files have been approved to print.
Turnaround begins the nearest business day once all criteria to begin printing have been met. If all criteria to begin printing are met before 7am EST on a business day, then that business day is Day 1 of production. If all criteria to begin printing are met after 7am EST then the next business day is Day 1 of production.
Expected delivery date and turnaround times are not guaranteed. Although we make every possible effort to turn jobs around in the estimated times offered, your job may require more time due to unforeseeable or uncontrollable circumstances or finishing services added onto the job. We will not credit customers if a job runs past the requested turnaround time. Your order may arrive late due to unanticipated delays in delivery service, natural disaster, the breakdown of equipment, bad weather, etc. If you receive product in packaging that is clearly damaged, DO NOT ACCEPT the delivery or only accept the delivery as DAMAGED. You will need to submit a claim with the carrier (usually FedEx or UPS). Colad is not liable for damage caused by service carrier. If you accept an order with damaged packaging then you accept all liability for damage to the contents of the packaging.

26. Rewards Points:
The following sections pertain to the Rewards Points program offered on ThePaperWorker.
Reward Points Terms and Conditions
Being eligible for the Program entitles members (“Members”) to take advantage of certain Program rewards (“Rewards”) that may change from time to time and, which may be made available for limited times, all as determined by Sponsor in its sole discretion. Sponsor reserves the right to modify these Rewards Terms and Conditions at any time, without notice to you, so it is important to check the Rewards Terms and Conditions periodically. Participation in the Program and/or redemption of Rewards is considered acceptance of these Rewards Terms and Conditions and any modified terms included therein. Sponsor may, in its sole and absolute discretion, cancel, change, suspend or modify any aspect of the Program and/or any Program Reward at any time, including the availability of any Program Reward, without notice.
This Program will continue until terminated, suspended, modified, or converted to another rewards program by Sponsor (the "Program Period").
To become a Member of the Program, you must be a legal resident of the fifty (50) United States or District of Columbia, and be 18 years of age or older. To enroll in Program, you simply need to have registered for an account on ThePaperWorker.
Earning Reward Points
Rewards can currently be earned for the following actions:
- Making purchases — every time you make a purchase you earn points based on the price of products purchased and these points are added to your Reward Points balance. Points are awarded based on your actual spend before shipping & taxes.
Reward Points Exchange Rates
The value of reward points is determined by an exchange rate of both currency spent on products to points, and an exchange rate of points earned to currency for spending on future purchases. You will earn 1 point for every $1 spent on our site. Points are redeemable at a rate of $1 for every 50 points. Customers must have a minimum of 250 earned points to redeem toward a purchase. For example, if you spend $500 on ThePaperWorker (before shipping & taxes if applicable) then you will earn 500 points. Next time you need to order you can redeem 500 points for $10. This equates to a 2% savings on all of your spending on ThePaperWorker!
Redeeming Reward Points
You can redeem your reward points at checkout. Points cannot be applied towards taxes, shipping, or gift certificate purchases. Points are available for redemption for the purchase of products on the Site only while supplies last and quantities may be limited. If you have accumulated enough points to redeem them you will have the option of using points as one of the payment methods. The option to use reward points, as well as your balance and the monetary equivalent this balance, will be shown to you in the Payment Method area of the checkout. Redeemable reward points can be used in conjunction with other payment methods such as credit cards, gift cards and more.
Reward Points Minimums and Maximums
Reward points are capped at a minimum value of 250 points required for redemption. You will not be able to use your reward points until you accrue at least this required minimum number of points, at which point they will become available for redemption.
Reward points are not capped at a maximum value of points which can be accrued.
Reward Points Expiration
Reward points expire 1 year from the date earned. Points will expire in the order form which they were first earned. You can sign up to receive email notifications each time your balance changes when you either earn, redeem or lose points, as well as point expiration notifications. This option is found in the Reward Points section of the My Account area.
Sponsor Right to Amend
Sponsor reserves the right to suspend, terminate, revalue or modify, without liability, or notice to Members, all or part of the Points’ value structure and offers and any merchandise or service. Sponsor reserves the right to adjudicate all Points discrepancies in its sole discretion, and the Members agree to abide with any such adjudication.
Rewards may be taxable, depending on the value of the item and the federal, state, and local tax laws applicable to Member. Members are solely responsible for reporting such items on their tax returns and paying any associated tax liability. Members may not assign or transfer any Rewards. Sponsor makes no warranty in any respect as to any Rewards, merchandise or service available within the Program.
Sponsor may, in its sole and absolute discretion, cancel, change, suspend, or modify any aspect of the Program and/or any Reward at any time, including the availability of any Reward, without notice. Sponsor may, in its sole and absolute discretion, terminate or suspend any Member’s participation in the Program for breach of these Rewards Terms and Conditions, or for taking any actions that are inconsistent with the intent of these Terms and Conditions. Sponsor reserves the right at its sole discretion to prohibit any Member from participating in any aspect of the Program if Sponsor deems or suspects that such Member has engaged in or has attempted to engage in any of the following: (a) acting in violation of these Rewards Terms and Conditions; or (b) damaging, tampering with or corrupting the operation of the Program or Site; or (c) acting with intent to annoy, harass or abuse any other person; or (d) any inappropriate, uncooperative, disruptive, fraudulent, potentially fraudulent, or unusual behavior or activity; or (e) activity deemed in the sole discretion of Sponsor to be generally inconsistent with the intended operation of the Program. Any decision Sponsor makes relating to termination or suspension of any Member’s participation in the Program shall be final and binding in all respects. Sponsor shall be the sole determiner in cases of suspected abuse, fraud, or breach of these Rewards Terms and Conditions or intent of these Rewards Terms and Conditions.
By participating in the Program, Members release Sponsor, its parent company, subsidiaries, affiliates, suppliers, advertising and promotions agencies and their respective directors, officers, employees, and agents (collectively, “Released Parties”) from any and all liability for any loss, harm, damages, cost or expense, including, without limitation, property damages, personal injury and/or death, arising out of or in any way connected to the Program and/or the use of any Rewards.
Members agree to indemnify, defend and hold Sponsor and its representatives and agents harmless from and against any and all third party claims, demands, liabilities, costs or expenses, including attorney’s fees and costs, arising from, or related to any breach by Member of any of these Rewards Terms and Conditions or any violation by Member of applicable law.
