Complaints

Any complaints must be made within 7 calendar days of receiving your goods. Any complaints made after this time period are void of any right to reprint or refund. We have right to resolve any complaint within our own discretion and we will not be liable for any loss of income, loss of profits, loss of markets, loss of reputation, loss of customers, loss of use, loss of an opportunity even if we had knowledge that such damages or loss might arise or for any indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages or loss howsoever arising including without limitation breach of contract, negligence, wilful act or default.


Supplied Artwork in ‘Print-Ready’ format

You are responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files, and you must proofread all files carefully before submitting to Ludocards. 

We only accept Print-Ready files therefore it is crucial that you self-check the file format according to our Instructions before uploading them to your order:
https://www.ludocards.com/instructions.pdf

All artwork must be supplied as 300dpi Hi-Res in PDF format. Ludocards is not responsible for images that may print blurred or pixelated due to customer supplied artwork if its less than 300dpi. We require 2mm bleed on all edges for cutting.

If the files you supplied are not ‘Print-Ready’, we will contact you through Inbox and you will be responsible for correcting any issues, and your order will be withheld from production until you complete the changes or notify us to print as is. Any delays in artwork not being supplied ‘Print Ready’ will lead to your order missing the desired delivery.

Once the status of a print job becomes “Processing”, no changes are allowed to the artwork files, job characteristics, or printing turnaround time. If you must change the artwork files, please contact us through Inbox to verify the additional costs for such change.


Bleed and Margin Requirements

Since cutting cannot be guaranteed to be exactly in the same place for a large quantity of print products, you must stretch the background at least 2mm outside of the trim line on each side (this is called a “bleed”) and place all critical elements (text, images, graphic elements, logos, etc.) 5mm inward on each side from the trim line. Anything left too close to the trim line within 5mm inward or 2mm outward may be cut.

We recommend no borders due to shifting in the cutting process because they may appear uneven.


Production Turnaround Time

Our standard production turnaround time is 15 working days. It does not include shipping transit time and you should allow 3-7 additional business days for delivery based on your geographic location in the world from Italy.

Printing turnaround time begins once your order has been placed with full payment and your print-ready files have been uploaded to your order and approved for printing. Please note that if we are unable to print your files because they do not conform to our file requirements, your job status will return to “Waiting for files" and your printing turnaround time will be reset.

For printing jobs that do not have complete digital source files provided, printing turnaround begins when we have your print-ready file(s) for your print job, not from when the order is first submitted.


Shipping and Arrival Times

We only use the best international couriers (FedEx, TNT, UPS and DHL) but shipping transit times vary especially during the pandemic time, and Ludocards assumes no responsibility for delays caused by shipping carriers, weather or any damages resulting from the failure to receive a job on time as we have to rely on Third party delivery company / courier. Your order may arrive late due to unforeseen delays in delivery service, the breakdown of equipment, illness, etc. Any delivery times given are estimated and might be extended in connection with high volume of orders.

Ludocards is not responsible for delays due to improperly prepared files supplied.

Both printing and shipping times are based on business days only and do not include weekends or holidays.

Ludocards shall not be liable for any losses, costs, damages or expenses incurred by the customer or any other person or company arising directly or indirectly out of any failure to meet any estimated delivery date. We will not be under any liability whatsoever in the event that we are prevented or delayed from supplying or making delivery of any Goods by any reason or cause beyond our control, this includes any delay which may occur through international customs for items being delivered overseas.

Ludocards is not responsible for incorrect or inaccurate shipping addresses provided by customers. Orders that need to be reshipped, redelivered or rerouted due to an incorrect or inaccurate shipping address supplied by the customer will result in additional charges and the customer is responsible for the payment.


Damaged Goods during Shipping

All our products are carefully controlled for quality in production, and only those with verified good quality are selected for dispatch, being suitably packaged for transit purpose. Ludocards assumes no liability for goods loss or damage, whether direct, indirect, consequential or otherwise, once the products have been delivered to a courier. Title to products and risk of loss pass to you upon the dispatch from the Ludocards’ factory.

It is your responsibility to open the packaging and check the state of the products upon delivery. If goods arrive damaged they must be rejected for receiving from the courier and contact must be made to Ludocards Customer Service ASAP within 24 hours. Only in this way the damaged products can return to us for investigation so that we can file a complaint to the courier company and claim for compensation of the damaged goods. We shall arrange to reprint your order once we have received such compensation.

If you fail to check the state of the products upon delivery and fail to reject damaged goods from signing with the courier, you must send the entire damaged goods back to Ludocards in Italy at your own costs. This is the only way for us to file a complaint for investigation to the courier company.

In the event of delayed delivery, goods damages or losses, you have no right to withhold any payment to Ludocards.


Payment

All orders must be paid for in advance. Full payment must be received and cleared prior to processing the order. All prices are quoted in Euro and payment cannot be accepted in any other currency.

Quotations

Orders are accepted subject to our right to adjust prices quoted to take account of any changes in the law or the Italian Government Regulations requiring us to increase prices by way of direct taxation, import duties, customs and excise duties or otherwise.

Colour Accuracy and Consistency

Ludocards uses state-of-the-art printing technology and will reproduce colour from submitted print-ready files as closely as possible, but cannot exactly match colour and density because of limitations in the printing process, as well as neighbouring image ink requirements.
