4. Preliminary Work
All work carried out, whether experimentally or otherwise, at customer's request shall be chargeable.
Oomph will manage the complete production process to ensure customer satisfaction, although the customer shall be responsible for ensuring the accuracy and quality of all information and copy data provided to Oomph.
Proofs of all work may be submitted for customer’s approval and Oomph shall incur no liability for any errors not corrected by the customer in proofs so submitted. The customer will remain fully responsible for validating all appropriate details including any artwork, colours, spelling and fonts.
Please note that if order is a re-print and requires an exact colour match to a previous order, the customer will be required to supply an actual card as a sample to ensure a satisfactory colour match can be achieved. In these circumstances all reasonable efforts shall be made to obtain the best possible colour reproduction on customer’s work but variation is inherent in the print process and it is understood and accepted as reasonable that, Oomph shall not be required to guarantee an exact match in colour or texture between the customer’s photograph, transparency, proof, electronic graphic file, previously printed matter (whether printed by Oomph or other party) or any other materials supplied by the customer and the printed article the subject of the customer’s order. This is especially true when the sample submitted is printed on board, not laminated plastic.
￼The customer shall retain ownership of all copyright of data submitted, but will grant Oomph a royalty-free, non-terminable licence to use in order to fulfil the requirements of customer orders.
Unless expressly requested not to do so by the customer, Oomph reserves the right to use any artwork images from completed orders to promote itself. Oomph will, as a matter of courtesy, request the approval of the customer before proceeding, although such approval is not to be unreasonably withheld.
The customer shall be fully responsible for obtaining the necessary approvals to enable Oomph to reproduce all images and artwork it supplies, and shall indemnify Oomph against any third party claims associated with the use of such images. Oomph will not provide customers with any products which may be of an illegal or libellous nature or a potential infringement of the proprietary rights of any third party.

All design, text, illustrations, graphics, photographs, diagrams, drawings, logos and the selection and arrangement thereof, and all source code and all other material content are the intellectual property of Oomph or its content providers.

8. Delivery & Payment
Turnaround or (the “Lead Time”) is measured in Working Days, defined as days on which the clearing banks in the City of London are open for normal business. These are full Working Days, from 9:00am to 5:30 pm GMT. All orders are made on a Guaranteed Turnaround service (being orders guaranteed to be ready within a certain period, either 5, 10 or 15 working days (the “Guaranteed Period”)), delivery (as more particularly described in paragraph 8(b) below) will be made no later than 10pm on the last Working Day of the Guaranteed Period. Should Oomph fail to deliver within the Guaranteed Period a service “credit” will be awarded up to the value of the order in question (redeemable against future orders within 6 months of issue of the Credit in question) (the “Credit”). The customer will still be obliged to pay in full for the order in respect of which delivery was late, including any of the sums charged specifically for the provision of the Guaranteed Turnaround Service (“the Premium Charges”). Where the late delivery is as the result of the action or inaction of a third party, such as a carrier, Oomph, at their absolute discretion, may elect to extend the Turnaround by one Working Day and the customer shall not be awarded a Credit during this time.
a) These services rely on the customer not delaying the progress of the order in any way (which delays include but are not limited to the customer not returning proofs by the time specified by Oomph or failing to make payment by the time such payment is due) (a “Customer Delay”). In the event of a Customer Delay the customer shall not be awarded a Credit and the ￼customer shall still be obliged to pay the Express or Rush fees (“Premium Charges”) but Oomph shall not be bound to deliver within the Guaranteed Period.
b) Delivery of work by Oomph shall be deemed to take place upon collection of the work by the customer (where the customer is obliged to collect the work) or (where Oomph is obliged to deliver the work) actual delivery of the work to the customer by Oomph. Where the customer is obliged to collect the work, customer’s failure to collect the work on the day on which Oomph is contractually obliged to have it ready for collection shall be classed as a Customer Delay. Where Oomph is obliged to deliver the work to the customer but the customer provides Oomph with incomplete or incorrect delivery information or is not available to accept delivery, then provided that Oomph has used reasonable endeavours to deliver the work to the customer, a failed delivery shall be classed as a Customer Delay.
c) Unless otherwise specified the price quoted on its website will not include delivery. Delivery charges to the UK mainland will be displayed at checkout. The standard Oomph delivery service provides next day delivery via UPS, Mondays to Fridays, before 17.30 hrs, to a single UK mainland address. Should expedited delivery be agreed Oomph shall be entitled to make additional charges on a time and materials basis to cover any overtime or any other additional costs involved, including without limitation, the cost of couriers or special delivery post.
d) Should work be suspended at the request of or delayed through any default of the customer for a period of 30 days or more Oomph shall then be entitled to payment for work already carried out, materials specially ordered and other additional costs including storage.
e) Risk of loss of or damage to work completed by Oomph shall pass to the customer on delivery. Notwithstanding delivery and the passing of risk in the work to the customer, ownership of and title to the work shall not pass to the customer and shall be retained by Oomph until Oomph has received payment in full in respect of the work.
f) Payment should be made with placement of order (unless a credit account customer); once payment has been received Oomph will start processing the order.
g) In the unlikely event that Oomph deems it necessary to re-print work, the Guaranteed Period shall recommence from the time of Oomph’s confirmation to the customer of its agreement to reprint the work.
9. Cancellation of Orders
In the event of customer cancellation after placement of order and receipt of payment, but prior to approval of proofs, a full refund will be given minus an administration fee of 5% of order value.
Once proofs have been confirmed by the customer and Oomph has started the production process, cancellation of orders will not be possible and no refunds can be given.
