SHIPPING TERMS & CONDITIONS
Before you or your customer signs for a DuraPlaq® shipment, please inspect the outside of the packaging for any potential damage to the box or contents. If any damage occurs to the exterior packaging during shipping, the shipment must be noted as damaged with the carrier or the contents inspected and accepted by the recipient prior to signing for the package. Signing for a delivery without noting any potential damage is acceptance of the package and contents in its current condition upon arrival. This requirement is additionally noted on the exterior of each shipment. DuraPlaq will do everything possible to assist you in any damage claim, however, DuraPlaq will not be held responsible for loss or damage that has not been noted with the carrier upon receipt of your delivery.
Prepping Your Files For Printing? For the best resolution and end product, please submit image files in 8 or 16 bit format with Adobe 98 in tiff, jpeg, psd, vector, or psb format. Our printing processes maintain 1,200 dpi, however to maintain optimum print quality, files should maintain 300 dpi minimum at the desired print size. Please make sure you note any required image file sizes for preset size products.
Custom Size, Custom Price? DuraPlaq believes in offering customization as a standard! Unless it’s a preset sized product, there’s no need to compromise or crop your image! All of our products are custom created to the size you want (rounded to the nearest 1/8″). To determine a DuraPlaq price, calculate the overall square inch size of the piece (length in inches x width in inches = square inch) and determine the corresponding product cost and the corresponding print cost if applicable. To calculate the product cost, locate the corresponding square inch size in the plaq size column on the left of the pricing page and follow the line horizontally to the product column to the price. If the square inch size is not specifically noted, round up to the nearest listed square inch size. If a print is not included or you have not provided one, a print cost will also be assessed. The print cost is calculated by taking the square inch size of the print times the print rate as shown on page 8 for each print type (square inch size x print rate = cost).

What Else Should you Know? 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. Borders on images may become skewed given the human craftsmanship involved in creating our plaque products. Attention to detail is important however we do not recommend borders smaller than 1″ as they can exaggerate small skewing in the print application. Please check out the DuraPlaq terms and conditions before ordering for more information regarding image resolution, customization, applicable fees and more.
