All pricing for works assumes that the client be responsible for supplying print-ready artwork (meaning in CMYK colour format, with all text converted to outlines and images embedded) unless otherwise agreed by V Signs UK Ltd.
If the client would like V Signs UK Ltd to produce artwork then they will subject to an artwork charge relative to the time taken to produce said artwork. Chargeable at £45+VAT per hour of design work.

V Signs UK Ltd make every effort to display as accurately as possible any colours used in your project. Colours do vary slightly depending on your computer screen, files used (RGB & CMYK) and what material the designs are printed on.
Any extra costs that may arise due to the purchasing of stock photos, typefaces or anything else, will be added to the final invoice.
Any vehicle due to have vinyl graphics applied must be cleaned the morning of drop off or if this is not possible - the day before. Failure to do so will lead to increased application time and incur a cleaning charge of £25+VAT and only the areas being sign written will be cleaned. We are unable to pressure wash vehicles on site, so we can only conduct a dry clean.
When any artwork is produced by V Signs UK Ltd a proof will be sent to the client for confirmation. In confirming the proof the client takes full responsibility for any errors in the artwork including, but not limited to, spelling, typos, incorrect phone numbers, missing letters & low resolution images. Please pick up on errors at this stage.
Unless otherwise agreed by V Signs UK Ltd a single round of revisions to the proof will come free of charge. Multiple proofs will be chargeable at £45+VAT per hour of design work.
Production Times and Deadlines
Any products that need to be printed require a 48 hour gassing off period, in order for the ink to properly dry, before the artwork can be laminated. The product will then need a 24 hour period for the lamination to fully bond to the print. Should the clients deadline require that the artwork be laminated before this period, the client takes full responsibility for any de-lamination that may occur later on down the line.
The standard production time will be 7-10 working days however, the specific production time that any job requires will be outlined at the quoting stage and by agreeing to the quote the client agrees to the deadline outlined by V Signs UK Ltd. This lead time commences once the deposit has been received by V Signs UK Ltd.

VEHICLE CLEANING/ PREPARATION
Please ensure the vehicle has been washed but NOT POLISHED no earlier than 24 hours before the book in date but preferably on the same day. We can recommend the guys at Hilliers Garden Centre in Liss next to the A3. We have budgeted our time to include 'dry' surface cleaning the sign written areas of the vehicle which includes removing light road dust from your travel to us. We have not budgeted pressure washing the entire vehicle as this consumes a lot of time which includes drying the vehicle before we can carry out our work of sign writing it.
Please advise us if your vehicle has layers of wax, sealant, ceramic or nano coating as this affects the adhesion of the vinyl and the warranty will be void unless it is removed from the vehicle prior to us fitting the decals. We can quote to remove this for you or you can contact a local body shop and request a mop 'polish' using a cutting compound.
ARTWORK APPROVAL & DEPOSIT PAYMENT
In confirming the proof the client takes full responsibility for any errors in artwork including, but not limited to, spelling, typos, incorrect phone numbers, missing letters & low resolution images. Please pick up on errors at this stage as it can be easily and quickly rectified. If a proof is signed off with incorrect information then this will incur an additional cost to the client to rectify later down the line.
COLOUR MATCHING & SAMPLE SERVICE
Please note that actual product colours may vary. This is due to the fact that every computer monitor, laptop, tablet and phone screen has a different capability to display colours and that everyone sees these colours differently. We try to edit our artwork to show all of our designs as life-like as possible, but please understand the actual colour may vary slightly from your monitor. If colour matching is hyper sensitive you can request a colour sample of your job printed on the exact substrate the live job will be produced on before production commences at a fixed cost of £30 plus vat. If you would like to use this service please request it via email. It will be assumed that by not mentioning this in any future correspondence that the service is not required and therefore no adjustments can be made after production without incurring a reprint charge. Please note that this service will result in a delay to the specified lead time.
We do offer a qualified third party proof reading service at a fixed price of £30 plus vat. If you would like to use this please request it via email. It will be assumed that by not mentioning this in any correspondence that the service is not required. Please note that this service usually results in a 5 working day delay.
