- You agree to not make use of any content that contains or portrays anything unlawful, obscene, threatening or otherwise objectionable.
- You acknowledge that Canvas Factory provides prints and gift products for novelty purposes only, and that you are responsible for following all legal standards, rules and regulations that apply to your content when applicable.
Canvas Factory offers a choice of two services, across several products.
- PRO direct - A Designer WILL NOT check your images
- PRO design - A designer will check your images
PRO Direct Print Service
You accept responsibility for the files and design of your order and acknowledge that items ordered without a Design check are automatically moved into Production without a Design check. This means we do not check for aspects such as:
- Resolution at print size
- Composition, cropping, location of logos, watermarks and text
- Contrast, hue, saturation, brightness
- File type uploaded
- The correct submission of black and white images
If you select our PRO direct service, it is your responsibility to check:
- Images uploaded need to be a minimum resolution of 150dpi, and possibly more, depending on the size product ordered. It is your responsibility to check resolution at the printed size to ensure a clear, crisp print. This includes the ISO of images and its effects on the final printed product
Image colour, composition, lighting, location of text and watermarks
- The composition, colour, lighting and location of your image, text and logos on the final product. It is your responsibility as a customer to ensure you are happy with the above.
- Images appear brighter on backlit devices, so it’s important to ensure your image is bright enough for printing.
- Every possible effort will be made to ensure the fidelity of the colours in your order. However, you acknowledge that colour variations between your screen and ours exist. As such, you acknowledge that we cannot guarantee that the colours on your screen will be identical to those on the finished product.
Canvas wrap: image and mirror selection
- It is the customers responsibility to ensure that important parts of their images do not fall into the canvas wrap area. We allow 3.5cm for the wrap
- It's also important to note that our canvas products require a bleed of 2-3mm. This means you should not place any important elements right on the edge of the canvas, as there is a chance this may fall into the wrap as the canvas is stretched over the edge of the frame.
- It is also the customers responsibility to preview their image to ensure the image wrap is as per their requirements.
PRO direct and File size
Our system only accepts files up to 20MB in size. If you want to utilise our PRO direct service but require us to download larger files on your behalf, please include a link to your files in the comments section of the order. We will replace your initial files with the large files on your behalf and move the order into Production. Larger files must be production ready, as no additional editing will be carried out at this stage.
PRO design service
Our PRO Design service offers the following
Image resolution and ISO check at the chosen size and recommendations if smaller size required
- Brightness and contrast check
- Basic colour balance check
- Wrap and bleed check to ensure important parts of your image are not cut off
- Removal of red eye, dust and hair particles if required
- Basic image manipulation – straighten, placement and cropping if required
- Conversion of CMYK files to sRGB
- Ensure black and white images are presented as Grey Scale
Every possible effort will be made to ensure the fidelity of the colours in your order. However, you acknowledge that colour variations between your screen and ours exist. As such, you acknowledge that we cannot guarantee that the colours on your screen will be identical to those on the finished product.
If no edits are required to your image/s we will move your order directly into Production and will let you know via email. If at this point you want us to apply any additional edits under our PRO Design Service, it is your responsibility to let us know within 24 hours so that we may remove your order from our Production queue.
If edits are required, we will make the necessary adjustments and we will move your order directly into Production and will let you know via email. If at this point you want us to apply/reverse any edits it is your responsibility to let us know within 24 hours so that we may remove your order from our Production queue.
If your image is blurry at print size, we will place your order on hold and send you an SMS and email. You acknowledge that it is your responsibility to respond at your earliest convenience.
You acknowledge that if you do approve any image editing that we do not offer refunds or free reprints if you are not happy with the result.
Please note our Designer fee is non-refundable
