DuraPlaq® products are custom built and rounded in size to the nearest 1/8 inch based on the provided image file / print. For the best resolution and end product, please submit image files in 8 or 16 bit Adobe 98 RGB format. For print resolution, files should maintain 300 dpi to 600 dpi at the desired print size in tiff, jpeg, psd, or psb format. Please note any required image file size requirements by product for preset size products. Submit image files pre‐size to the specified sizes noted on the price list. Please contact the DuraPlaq® Customer Service team for paper‐specific ICC profiles for standard DuraPlaq® paper print offerings for soft proofing purposes. Please note, ICC profiles are not available for economy products as the white point of economy products is not as consistent as paper. Without a correctly color‐calibrated monitor and Adobe 98 profiling, image colors may print different than what is visible on your computer screen. To assure colors meet your expectations, DuraPlaq® recommends ordering test prints to assure colors are correct for any specific image. Test prints will be charged at corresponding print cost listed on price list per print type. Image files will be kept on file internally unless otherwise requested for reordering purposes. Image files do not need to be uploaded with each order if previously submitted. To reorder an image, please list the image by the exact file name previously submitted when corresponding order information.
Due to the subjective nature of acceptable appearance both in color and resolution, there is no specific standard DuraPlaq® can go by to review images printed at our facility. In serving largely professional photographers, artists, and designers, DuraPlaq® assumes any desired image modification and preparation has been completed prior to submission. Any editing including, digital signatures or verification of the image resolution, etc. is not performed unless specifically noted with an incoming order. Pending complexity and requested or required services, graphics and editing time may be billed in accordance with the hourly rate listed on the price list. Due to the nature of printing to materials with varying base colors, textures and finishes, there may be variations in the surface and appearance of a direct print or infused print. Ink adhesion and end product quality are not guaranteed with customer provided materials due to varying ink acceptance of materials. DuraPlaq® does not offer replacements on surface or color variations with products including direct prints, infused prints, or prints on custom or customer provided materials.
There are limitless ways to customize a DuraPlaq® product. Given the range of options and custom nature of every order, the DuraPlaq® team strives to fulfill each order with accuracy to your expectations every time. In order to do this, please specify any custom notes and details with each order so that DuraPlaq® can meet your expectations. Without specifically noting preferences, unique customization, and non‐standard order requirements, DuraPlaq® can not be held liable for their omission. DuraPlaq® would hate to not meet your expectations because they are not clearly noted with each order. Non‐standard components including digital signatures, wire hangers, etc. must be denoted to ensure proper order completion. Modifications to an order or missing information may delay order fulfillment if not addressed before the order is processed. Please verify your order for accuracy and completeness prior to submission and assure that you have corresponded customization, digital editing, or other specifics when placing an order.

All DuraPlaq® products come with a built in hanging system unless otherwise noted. The provided standard hanging system varies by product type and is recommended for security and stability when hung. DuraPlaq® recognizes that alternate hanging systems, including wire hangers, may be required for temporary presentation. DuraPlaq® will provided non‐standard wire hangers on most products at the customer’s request. Please note, wire hangers can not be applied to StandardPlaq or Economy StandardPlaq products nor can wire hangers be applied post production. Due to insecurity in hanging and potential for failure, DuraPlaq® is not liable for damage caused for any product with a non‐standard wire hanger.
The manufacturing process can take up to 1/4″ off each side of artwork for most DuraPlaq® products. Please note that signatures or crucial image composition should be minimum 1/4″ away from edge of artwork to assure they will be maintained in manufacturing process. Add 1/4″ to each length and width dimension if margins are tight to allow for this production requirement to maintain image composition with any product with a beveled edge. Due to the hand created nature of the DuraPlaq® product line, there is a minimum 1/8″ skew tolerance in the manual application of a print. Please note that this may appear exaggerated on images with small borders; borders less than 2” are not recommended.
