You, as a customer or buyer of products and services, are ultimately responsible for the accuracy of the product ordered, including quantity of products ordered, product dimensions, colour, artwork, product type. Any errors made are your responsibility.

You confirm that you are the original creator and have title to any supplied or designed artwork that is used or designed on paq. Where ownership is not held by the you, you represent and warrant that you have express consent from the rightful owner of any image and/or artwork to use it for the purposes while on the paq site. You agree to indemnify us against any liability or costs that arise from the misuse of any artwork.

The images will be used to produce products as per the request of User. If paq wishes to use images provided by User at any point, it will only do so for promotional purposes, and paq will seek express permission from User if it seeks to do so.
For files designed on paq’s design platform, the ownership of such designs and products is held by paq, excluding any elements, files, images that are uploaded by you in order to produce the design.
Warranties of Products and Services
We take great pride in the work that we do. If there is any defect in the product related to printing or workmanship or the product is otherwise deemed faulty by both you and us, the product will be replaced if User identifies the defect to us within 7 days of receiving the product.
We inspect all materials before leaving our facilities. It is User’s responsibility to inspect materials at the point of receipt. If there is damage done in the transportation process, User must alert both paq and the courier. Such a claim must be registered within 7 days of receipt of the product, and User must retain all packaging materials in the event paq exercises its right to request that all damaged items be returned to us, with shipping costs to be paid by paq.
Designs Developed in 3rd Party Software Platforms
paq is unable to verify the quality, resolution and/or reproduction of any files that have been designed and/or generated in any 3rd party software (e.g. Adobe Illustrator). You are ultimately responsible for the quality and resolution o
files, or component images provided while on the paq platform. paq is only able to read the quality and resolution of the flattened file that the user provides.
Cancelling an Order
paq seeks to produce products for users quickly, at times within an hour of your purchase and approval. Therefore, paq is unable to cancel an order once approved. In the event of very high quantity orders, and when a cancellation request is received by our production team at an early stage of the production process, a partial refund may be provided at the discretion of paq.
Late Delivery/Quantity Incorrect
Paq will use reasonable commercial efforts to arrange delivery of all product orders within the estimated delivery time of each order and in the quantities ordered, but shall have no liability for any claims, costs or expenses, including loss of profits, incurred by you or made against you by any third party, including your customer, arising from orders that are delivered late or orders delivered in incorrect quantities for any reason and whether or not due to circumstances within the control of paq. If the delivery time and/or quantities are important to you, you should ensure all product is ordered for delivery well before the required delivery date to allow for time for you to deal with any issues.
