We strongly urge customers to check the electronic proof of their artwork before submitting your approval. NO JOB will be sent to press without your approval.

Electronic proofs do not show transparency and overprint issues. They also do not show the color change from RGB or Pantone to CMYK. Therefore, savrcup.com will not be liable for color variation between the proof and the printed product. We will try our best to match the colors of the proof and the printed product but please understand that color variation differences are inherent inconsistencies of the printing process and we will not be held responsible for it. The proof should be checked by you against the original file for possible errors in layout, copy, spacing, punctuation or image placement. You, the Customer are fully responsible for all that is contained in the final approved proof, so please make sure you review it thoroughly.
Before taking responsibility for approving please check all the information of your proof. By endorsing your proof you declare that it is “Approved for production” and assume any responsibility for any errors or omissions on your visual, as well as its layout. Please note, there is no warranty that the colors you see on the computer screen correspond exactly to the ink used when printing.
Color Proofing: Because of differences in equipment, processing, proofing, inks, pigments, and other conditions between color proofing and production operations, Customer will accept a reasonable variation in color between proofs and the completed job. It is the customer’s responsibility to determine if the job is color critical. If so, customer is to highlight that this is a COLOR CRITICAL JOB. If not expressed in writing, SAVRcup LLC will assume it’s not color critical.
The customer is fully responsible for final proof and layout approval prior to the printing process. Any jobs that have been approved and/or or sent to press cannot be altered or changed due to the nature of the printing process, and no refund will be given.
