Failing to provide “print ready” artwork within the 3-week timeframe will result in the customer’s order losing production priority. The Company will not be responsible for any delays resulting from the Customer’s failure to provide “print ready” artwork within the specified period. The Company may also choose to send a final invoice for the product only if “print ready” has not been received by the five weeks after the submission of the supplement facts. In these cases, a final invoice for artwork, special packaging, freight and other extras will be provided when the project is completed and ready to ship. The Customer is responsible for all copy, directions, warnings or any additional information appearing on the label. The Company is only responsible for providing the Supplemental Facts and Dye Line.
