Unless specifically provided in quotation, press proofs will be charged for at current rates. An inspection sheet of any form can be submitted for Customer approval, at no charge, provided Customer is available at the press during the time of makeready. Lost press time due to Customer delay, or Customer changes and corrections, will be charged at current rates.

Increases in our cost of materials between date of quote and performance date by Cedar Graphics must be added to quote prices. Upon receipt of original copy or manuscript, should it be evident that the condition of the copy differs from that which had been originally described and consequently quoted, the original quotation shall be rendered void and a new quotation issued. 7.
