Terms & Conditions

  1. “These Conditions of Sale shall govern the contracts between the supplier (Print Image Network Ltd who also trades as UK Engage) and the Customer to the exclusion of any other terms and conditions subject to which any such quotation is accepted or purported to be accepted or any such order is made or purported to be made by the customer.
  2. These conditions override any differing conditions which may appear on the Customer’s Order Form or other document and no variation to these conditions shall be binding unless agreed in writing between the Buyer and the Seller.”
  1. Cost Variation: Quotations or Estimates are based upon the supplier’s current costs and are subject to amendment on or after acceptance at any time to meet any rise or fall in such costs.
  2. Tax: Except in the case of a customer who is not contracting in the course of a business nor holding himself out as doing so, the supplier reserves the right to charge the amount of any value added tax payable whether or not included on the estimate or invoice.
  3. Preliminary Work: All work produced at the customer’s request, whether experimental or otherwise will be charged for.
  4. Poor Copy: The supplier reserves the right to charge for additional work involved where copy supplied is not clear or legible.
  5. Proof Work: Corrections on or after first proofs, including alterations in style, type or layout, shall be charged extra. Proofs of all work may be submitted for customer’s approval and no responsibility or liability will be accepted for any errors in proofs not corrected by the customer in proofs so submitted.
  6. Quantity Delivered: The supplier will make every effort to deliver the correct quantity ordered but quotations are conditional upon a margin of ten per cent being allowed for overs or shortages, the same to be charged for or deducted.
  7. Retention of Title: Property in any goods detailed in this document shall remain with the supplier until the whole price for such goods has been received by the supplier. Risk in such goods shall pass to the customer on delivery to it or its agents.
  8. Delivery and Payment: Unless agreement is made to the contrary and is recorded on the face of this document, goods will be delivered when completed to the customer’s address as set out in this document and payment shall be made against delivery. A charge may be made to cover any extra costs involved for delivery to a different address. Should expedited delivery be agreed an extra charge may be incurred and charged to the customer. Should work be suspended at the request of, or delayed through any default of the customer for a period of 30 days, the supplier shall then be entitled to payment for work already carried out, materials specially ordered and other additional costs including storage charges. If the customer terminates an order or cancels the services originally instructed by the customer and to be delivered by the supplier then at least 60 days written notice must be given before the requested delivery date. Where production capacity, resources and materials have been allocated exclusively in advance, failure to provide adequate notice will give the supplier the right to charge the customer the full estimated cost of all booked and planned work based on commitments made in good faith on the customer’s behalf or where time is of the essence. Where more than 60 days’ notice has been given by the customer the supplier reserves the right to charge the customer for all materials and services allocated or specially purchased on the customer’s behalf and where costs are not recoverable by supplier. In the event any amount payable by the customer to the supplier is improperly delayed the supplier may without prejudice to any other right: -
  1. charge the customer interest at a rate of three per cent above the base rate current at The Royal Bank of Scotland plc and
  2. by giving notice to the customer in writing suspend the performance of any order still to be completed and
  3. by further notice to the customer terminate any order still to be completed and
  4. provide that if any invoice is not paid within the credit period, all credit periods are cancelled so that all invoices become immediately due for payment.
  1. Terms of Payment: The customer shall pay for the price of the services and goods supplied by the supplier to the customer within 30 days of the date of the supplier’s invoice, notwithstanding that delivery may not have taken place and the property and the goods may not have passed to the customer. The time of payment of the price shall be of the essence of the contract and if the customer fails to make any payment on the due date then, without prejudice to any other right or remedy available to the supplier the supplier shall be entitled to remedies specified in clause 8.
  2. Claims: Advice of damage, delay or partial loss of goods in transit or of non-delivery must be given in writing to the supplier and the carrier within three clear days of delivery (or in the case of non-delivery within 14 days of despatch of the goods) and any claim in respect thereof must be made in writing to the supplier and the carrier within seven clear days of delivery (or in the case of non-delivery within 14 days of despatch). All other claims must be made in writing to the supplier within 28 days of delivery.

  2. Any advertising material that the customer may require the supplier to insert in or print on a third-party mailing or stationery shall be submitted for the approval of the third party by the time stated on the Acknowledgement of Order. Any deviation from this may result in a loss of revenue to the supplier should the content of the advertising be ultimately rejected by the third party in which case the supplier shall charge such loss of revenue to the customer.
