2. CONTENT AND PRINT MATERIAL
2.1 Artwork origination will be executed in accordance with the design brief. A visual proof (digital copy) will be supplied, marked ‘visual mockup’. This proof is for the customer to view and adjust changes if need be. Should changes be required a ‘revised proof’ is submitted to ensure the customer is satisfied with amendments. Thereafter, any changes made to the design proofs will constitute ‘’Authors Correction’’ and will be charged accordingly. At time of production, a final proof may be given to customer for approval only should continual changes have had been made, which he/she needs to approve. It is imperative the customer reads all copy and ensures that no errors have been introduced. Any errors found after production has taken place, is for the Customers’ account.

It is not the responsibility of Keepsake Creative to check the content to ensure that it plays or works correctly, this is the responsibility of the Customer. Should Keepsake Creative be required to collect the Customer’s master and/or print material on more than one occasion due to an error and/or omission on the part of the Customer, or for any reason whatsoever, Keepsake Creative reserves the right to levy a charge in respect of the collection thereof.
