Cooperation terms and conditions
Applicable at Premier Group
For the customer
Orders are placed on the supplier's order form (available for download at www.premiergroup.pl), specifying the model, ceramics or glass colour, number of decorative elements, location of the decorative elements, method of packaging and collection, and order completion date. When placing the first order, you are required to send company registration documents electronically together with cooperation and order terms and conditions applicable at Premier Porceline signed by the owner or an authorised person. Provide a 1:1 scale design in corel v16 or lower or an .eps v8 file (all elements converted into curves) with colour specification according to Pantone. Raster designs should be sent in the .tif format, scale 1:1, resolution 300 dpi. We also expect to receive a visualisation of the location of the print on the ordered item. Graphic designs can be sent via our website www.premierporceline.com. After receiving the order, we send a confirmation via email which specifies the order completion date and price.
The prices are defined on the basis of the current price list. The prices do not include transport costs. Ceramics and glass are packed in original cartons, unless it is a standard practice to pack certain products differently. There is a possibility to order packagings currently available on offer. Prices quoted in offers and price lists are net ex-works prices.
Colour fidelity in ceramic and glass decal may differ from the design even by 15%, depending on the selected surface and colour. Conducting a test is recommended. Technological trial includes the cost of pre-print + euro 50 net for each prototype. 50 % of the pre-print cost is deducted from the value of the order, provided that the order is placed within 7 calendar days as of receiving the prototype. After this time, the pre-print settings are cancelled and if an order is made, the customer is charged with the cost again.
Print colours and options and customer responsibility
FULL COLOR is understood as CMYK. One colour (white) should be added as underprinting in colour products and glass. CMYK prints differ from CMYK print using the offset or any other technology. A design in the form of a PROOF is treated only as an indicator of the intended final effect. The fact that print on ceramics will not be of offset / printer quality should be taken into consideration. We always recommend conducting a technological trial. By not doing so, the customer assumes the risk of colour discrepancy and incompatibility between the print and the design and the contractor will accept no claims in this respect. Pantone print is understood as composed of single colours. When printing on colour surfaces, an additional colour is added as white underprinting. There is a possibility to combine Pantone colours with CMYK print. Each production file should be prepared with the colours that are to be used in printing. The contractor does not assume the risk for making a mistake of selecting the wrong shade of colour, even if the customer orders the contractor to select the colours himself. The customers bears the costs of pre-print each time he orders the production of print. If the design is changed after the pre-print, the cost of the pre-print is charged again in the amount corresponding to the number of used colours.
Thanks to the HydroColor technology, we are able to offer innovative solutions for dyeing ceramics. This technology translates into a wide range of colours, but it is technically impossible to ideally repeat the colour combination after some time. Ceramics dyed according to colour data sheets is resistant to washing in the dishwasher. The resistance is 100-1000 washing cycles and it depends on the colour and type of coating. If the Soft Touch coating is used, it is possible that the final colour will be close to the intended Pantone colour. The tolerance is 10%. Due to the specificity of paints and their optical properties, the contractor reserves the right that there might be a colour discrepancy. Coating by hydro-glaze on inside surface of the mug create a risk of discolouration this surface in reaction with some of the food products. Discolouring of inside coating by hydro-glaze is not under producer guarantee.
