By setting up an account and registering with appapress.com, you are agreeing to these terms and conditions and also to receive emails and phone calls from Appalachian Press. This may include, but is not limited to, questions or updates on your orders, shipping/tracking information, promotions and coupons, receipts, issues with files, issues with payment, etc.
DATA AND PRIVACY
The information we collect is used only for internal record keeping and marketing purposes. We do not sell or share customer information with any third parties. This includes but is not limited to: names, phone numbers, emails, passwords, company information, order history, filenames and file contents. Customers who no longer wish to order from appapress.com may request the deletion of all personal information by contacting us via email email@example.com.
We stand behind the quality of our products and services so far as the problem in question is within our control. If for any reason you are not satisfied with the job, please let us know within 30 days. This is the longest that we keep samples, so verifying errors beyond that becomes difficult. Orders are considered closed and cannot be reprinted, returned or refunded after 30 days.
We cannot be held responsible for issues which were already present in your uploaded files, including, but, not limited to image resolution, typos, file errors, and formatting issues. But we do make every effort to catch and alert you to such problems before printing, but, ultimately the responsibility is yours to provide a “production ready PDF”. We also cannot be responsible for jobs which are ordered “wrong” (e.g. you chose the wrong paper, meant to choose double-sided printing, etc). Be sure to review all specifications for your job before submitting.
There are certain circumstances or issues that are beyond our control and are not covered by our guarantee. Here is a list of things that can go wrong that we cannot be responsible for:
Our full refund guarantee does not apply to shipping claims. We ask that your original order be returned, at our cost, before we begin reprinting or issuing a refund for your order.
We are not responsible or liable for any damages or claims incurred by you or your business that are caused by printing materials which are defective or incomplete or which you received later than the estimated due date. This guarantee is limited (only) to reprinting of the original order quantity or refund of the purchase price of the order and our sole discretion. In no event shall our liability to you for any reason exceed the amount actually paid to us, if any, for or through the use of this website. Appalachian Press is not liable for, loss, or delayed delivery times. This guarantee is limited to the full cost of us reprinting your original order or providing a refund of up to $2500. This guarantee does not cover fees for mailing services or associated incidental or consequential damages or claims of any kind.
The prices for goods and services shown on this website are in US dollars ($USD), unless otherwise noted.
If a visitor to this site submits a request to purchase printing products or services, the visitor has become a user of this site, and the user agrees that all charges, taxes, and shipping fees will automatically be charged to the credit card or paid by the user with a pre-approved payment method.
Once an order for printing has been approved by the customer and “sent” to the site, no changes are allowed in the deadline times, the artwork files, or the job specifications. After an order for printing has been sent via the website, the customer is responsible for paying the entire amount of the order, unless otherwise noted. In some cases, the refund may be issued to the customer if no work has been started by Appalachian Press. We will only consider these types of refunds when you personally take responsibility to notify us by phone during normal working hours that are posted elsewhere on the site.
All requests to purchase printing must be submitted with a mutually approved and agreed upon payment method. If you have any questions on payment, please call us at your earliest convenience.
Approved methods for payment include, but are not limited to, any of the following methods. Credit card or debit card. This is how most of our customers pay us. We use a very secure server that encrypts your payment data so that only our computers can decode and understand it. Credit card payments are very safe with us.
Payment by check. We do accept POs on open accounts for government and educational institutions and for pre-approved local and regional businesses. If you would like details about how to open an account, please call us in advance of placing your order. We’d be happy to discuss the details and explain the payment options and terms available to you.

Appalachian Press is required to collect state sales tax on all printing purchases shipped to any state(s) where we are required to pay sales tax. If your organization has a sales tax exemption, it is important to understand that is your responsibility to supply us with written copies of your sales tax exemption forms before your order is shipped.
The prepress department at Appalachian Press inspects most artwork files before printing, but you are still 100% responsible for the accuracy of your print-ready artwork files. We encourage you to take a few moments and carefully inspect and proofread your files carefully before submitting them to our website.
We provide easy-to-understand file preparation tips on our website.
We allow customers to pick up completed jobs at our Westfield, MA location. We suggest that you call before visiting, so we can have everything ready to go for you.
