Stylize Display Graphics uses a variety of digital inkjet printers which run with different makes and types of ink & RIPS (raster image processors). Although all printers are calibrated there is no guarantee of exact colour matches between printers. We suggest all supplied files are produced using the 4-colour process system and the use of Pantone® colours, especially tints is discouraged. If exact colour matches are required we will need to produce a swatch that matches the required colour as close as our systems allow. The time spent and materials used in producing the colour swatches will be chargeable.

Any damage, faults, shortages or discrepancies must be advised in writing to Stylize Display Graphics within 7 days of receipt or delivery. Signing a carrier’s delivery note ‘unchecked’ does not absolve the persons receiving the goods from this condition.
(c) We do not offer goods on a ‘sale-or-return’ basis. This is due to the fact that most of our products are bespoke and are made to customers specific requirements.
