You agree to accept the following methods of shipment and packaging for printed orders:
Folding: All newspapers are half folded, then quarter folded, unless quarter folding is specifically requested not to be done. We do not carry boxes for half fold, so there may be an additional packaging fee for half fold only requests . The top half of your first page will be the visible front of your newspaper. For 11x14, this would be the top 7 inches. For 11x17, this would be the top 8 1/2 inches.
For UPS Orders: We ship UPS in either large envelopes or boxes that accommodate 11x14 and 11x17 quarterfolded newspapers.
For Drop Ship Deliveries: Newspapers will be bundled, stacked on a pallet, and securely protected by shrink wrap.
Shipping Upgrades: Shipping upgrades may be made by calling customer service up until the day before shipment. Once shipment has been turned over to the carrier, no upgrades are possible.
Final Quality of Printed Newspapers
If your supplied artwork uses ignorantly large images that take up a lot of space on your page, it may create creases in the newsprint when run on a digital press (5000 copies or less). We cannot offer a refund or a reprint if this happens. It is beyond our control.
MAKING CHANGES TO PRINTED NEWSPAPERS
You agree to the following conditions regarding desired changes to your printed newspapers:
Once your PDF has been downloaded by our printer, no further changes can be made. There is no specific date or time frame that this could happen as it depends upon scheduling and print availability.
In the event your project is designed in a page size that does not meet the size you chose in your order (I.E. you chose 11x14 to print, but your project is designed as 11x17), we reserve the right to print your newspaper on the correct size in which it was built. These sizes are not proportional, so we can't print 11x14 on 11x17 or vice versa. This may require that we charge you additional printing and shipping costs. This process is automatically done via software, not human interaction.
