04. Print Errors and Mis-orders.
Errors on part of the client/ artist are not subject to reprints or refunds. Examples being: low dpi or resolution, smudges, spots or blurry flies, color errors, wrong dimensions, misordered items etc.
While we strive to make the best product and stand behind "printing like we give a shit", we can only do the best with what is sent to us. When sending files make sure they are print ready! The spot of spilled ink is might be a mistake to you, but to us it looks part of the art, and it will be printed as is if it is on the file.
Files sent to us will be printed as is with minor color correction as needed. We reserve the right to charge reproduction/ design/ editing time if the file is in need of editing over 30min, including scanner bed removal, sizing adjustment, etc.
05. Turn Times
All products have different turn times, and not all are available for rush due to printing process. Days that the shop is closed for vacation, holidays or emergencies (such as health, weather, family etc.) will be posted on the website and across social media.
All orders placed over that time will begin when the shop opens back up or posted date. Rush options are not available on any items when the shop is closed.
06. Our business days are Tuesday-Friday, so please keep that in mind when ordering and selecting shipping times and/or need by dates.
If you inform us your need by date that falls short of the required turn time, a member of our team will notify you and you may/will be required to pay rush shipping up-charges and/or a rush fee if applicable to the item. Items not available for rush are indicated as such on the website.
07. Quality Assurance
Our team will review all artwork ordered for the highest quality possible, and notify the orderer of any file errors such as, improper size or aspect ratio to ordered size, low resolution anything below 200 dpi will be rejected immediately. Digital art that was stretched and subsequently pixelated even if the final size is accurate to the order size and 300 dpi or above, will be rejected for orders.
We will not accept pixilated or compromised art at any capacity. Even if art is displayed at 300 dpi, but looks or appears low res, the artwork will be sent back to the client to repair or fix within 72 hours of order placed before order is canceled and money will be returned. You may then reorder with the correct artwork specs. The only exception granted to pixelated art will be if the art is intentionally pixelated ie: 8-bit, 16-bit, or illustrated to appear pixelated intentionally, etc.
We at Split Arrow make some of the highest quality prints & promotional materials and wish to keep our reputation this way, unintentionally pixelated and or compromised art does not fit into our definition of high quality art and cannot & will not be printed.
08. Held or Rejected Orders
Our order system may hold your order for manual reviewing or may cancel it automatically.
We check orders for, IP address mismatching, country ordered then shipped to a different country, multiple credit cards from a single IP, multiple orders from the same card at a given time, first time shopper, suspicious carts (high order value, overly large quantities of a single product, etc.) suspicious shipping options used, or more. We also reserve the right to cancel your order outright if we feel it is suspicious or fraudulent in any way or form we see fit, without written reason or contact.

If the paper or item you chose is out of stock and will not be available within the printing time frame, someone will notify you by the next business day. Clients/ artists can opt to hold their order until the paper comes in, or choose a different option or product. Cost will be adjusted when choosing a different product, you are responsible for paying the remaining balance. Items will also be listed as out of stock, but not on the custom order form.
10. Order Minimums
Each product or size has a different minimum posted on each product page. The minimum order is to maximize printer efficiency and minimize wasted paper and ink. While we can make some exceptions on a case by case basis, we reserve the right to refuse to print under the listed minimum for any reason disclosed or undisclosed.

When you place an order, we will estimate shipping and delivery dates for you based on the availability of your items and the shipping options you choose. Depending on the shipping provider you choose, shipping date estimates may appear on the shipping quotes page.
During winter holidays shipping companies get backed up and chances for packages going missing or delayed goes up, while we hope it doesn’t happen it can, please keep this in mind when choosing shipping times.

13. Lost, Stolen or Damaged items in shipping
Once the package leaves our shop we unfortuinatly do not have control over what happens to it. We take care to insure our packages via UPS for the value of the items, and pack them to insure there is minimal chance of damage, however we have seen it all and packages arrive looking like a group of hungry bears thought it was a picnic basket. Because of this all lost and damaged packages must be reported through UPS first. Please let us know too so we can double check everything and help where we can but it is your duty as the receiver to report the damage to the shipping company. We cannot offer reprints, or refunds for lost, stolen, or damaged packages without a UPS claim being open.
3PM cut off Tuesday-Friday for all rushed orders
• Rush shipping is separate from rush printing! You must take in account the turn time and shipping time to get your product in time. Please choose an appropriate shipping time for your needs.

Our screens get calibrated monthly to the highest calibration we can, under a d50 (5000k) environment.
However the best technology is only as good as the quality of file we were sent, if your file isn’t near or representative to your original art, we have no reference to color match.
